still dealing with back issues.  I scheduled a massage appt for this afternoon, and have a doctor appt next Thursday (earliest he could see me).  I know he said the next step was another ESI, but since then, a chiropractor told me I have a dysfunctional SI joint in addition to the degenerated and herniated disc, and so I want a doctor's opinion on what's actually hurting me.... and if it's the SI joint, is an ESI really going to help me?
Also, the work days are getting harder and harder to get through.  I am so damn bored.  I did get my PMP boot camp and exam scheduled for the 2nd week in December, so soon maybe I'll start reading that book and get some flashcards or something.  I've applied for a few other positions on the contract, but I'm honestly not holding my breath.. seems like all their open req's are just a formality and they almost always have somebody already in mind.

Work a Little Harder

Discipline is just choosing between what you want now and what you want most.
What a fun time last night. Live theatre has the power to entertain, to amaze, to enlighten, to open your mind and to open your heart. I'm not sure which power was unleashed last night, but it is indeed powerful to sit in a tiny theatre filled with retirees yelling "Janet Weiss - SLUT!!!"

I was meant to swim this morning, but after 11 straight days of exercise and only 6-7 hours of sleep a night, I was too shattered to get out of bed this morning! Will do the swim training on the weekend.

This weekend my bike goes up on the trainer and Sunday also begins the official ultra training plan.  And perhaps I will get to the pool once in a while and keep up with yoga too.  Things have been pure chaos for months and are finally looking to hit a routine at last.

7:01am:  Already Thursday! The week is going by quickly...
Trainer beatdown after work and then stuffed peppers for dinner.  Can't wait!

Life can be great when you simply jump in and get moving. Instead of excessive worrying or endless analyzing, just make your choice and then go with it.
Your first instinct is often your best one, because it comes from your authentic self. When you start taking a lot of other conflicting opinions and perspectives into account, your options quickly shrink.
Certainly it pays to think things through, and to consider the advice of others. Just don’t let it all dilute the passion that can energize your life. 
Trying to make the perfect decision can often lead to no decision at all. Trying to avoid every mistake can be the biggest mistake, because you also avoid getting anything done. 
Though you can plan for the future, you cannot precisely predict it. So go ahea[...]

Spent all afternoon on the phone with Dell yesterday about my tablet. There will be no more Dell computers in this house. Sad because we have owned more than I can count. We are getting ready to buy new desktops. We're going to to through a small local company and build just what we want.

Busy, but fun day on the agenda. Going back out with my mom, then meeting friends for a beer tasting. Honestly, the menu and beer choices sound a little scary to me, but I'm going to try everything!

Today is core day! Last time, I added some moves that I've never done or haven't done for a long time. It feels really good to be getting stronger (although the process is way slower than I'd like!)

Back in Texas - Little Negative Split Action
Home in Texas this weekend, working on getting the last details taken care of before getting the house on the market next week.   So much work to do.  UGH.  Moving is SUCH a pain!!!  But it's the right thing for us to do now.
This morning's run was better than expected, and I even ran solid negative splits.   However, my left calf started to tighten up on my run Monday, and hasn't fully loosened up.   It's now REALLY tight and somewhat uncomfortable.   Don't know why it's cramped up like it has, unless it has something to do with the tightness I'm feeling in the right Achilles tendon and I'm overcompensating or something.   Don't know, all I know is it's really still and knotted up.   I do have a long planned appointment with my fabulous endurance sport focused massage therapist this morning, so hopefully that will help.   Hope so.
Now it's get going[...]
