Need to be running 4.5 miles at some point today. Gotta finish up one last report, hopefully inspect a property, and then I'll be done for the day. Not looking good for getting all that done.

9:05 AM: Lifting at lunchtime. Or something in the middle of the day here.... then maybe a swim? Or maybe my 4 mile walk? Don't know. We'll see how things shape up. Chris has a full rest day. This is very unusual.
 Rest Lift Lift Again Bike 1 Long Bike (2 hours) Short Run (short route) Med Run (4 ish miles) Long Run (2 hours?) Swim Swim Again
No social commitments on the schedule this week. This is good. Possible happy hour on Friday, but I don't know if I'm going to go or not. I work from home on Fridays and the thought of getting all showered and dressed and GOING OUT is sort of... Meh. We'll see.

Sort of abbreviated. Had a very awkward conversation with a woman that is barely an acquaintance about losing our baby. She apparently didn't know that we lost the baby. I think the last time I saw her I may have been pregnant... it was that long ago. Anyway, she proceeded to ask me why we don't pursue having children if it's what we want? And then she asked me why w[...]

Run tonight - hoping to do 20 min straight and then work up from there. Will see. :) A month from yesterday I head to Florida for the 10K - so not ready but working on getting there.

Cut back on calories, not so intense exercise, eating healthier foods. I rarely eat out for lunch nowadays.

Weekend was a mix of doing house stuff and chilling out. I started on the basement, but got overwhelmed really fast. Got probably 8 black trash bags out to the curb and was covered in spiderwebs so called it quits. But I did finish cleaning out the kitchen cabinets (2 more trash bags). Went to At Home again and got some more pillows and string lights for the sunroom, and tried to get a new shade for my IKEA light. The existing shade was really big and my realtor said it took away from the room. But the shade I bought didn't work (of course). Bought a pretty spring wreath for the front door. Did more paint touch up in the bedroom and bathroom. Watched a bunch of basketball. Meh.
Other updates: I did get an email Friday that said I was moving forward in the role that I haven't interviewed for yet, so that was perplexing. Like they just skipped the phone screening for that one? My boss said they might have considered my first screening good for both roles, which would make sense. I kn[...]

I CNA'd Friday 5-10:30pm and Saturday 2-10:30pm, but that still left all of Sunday to enjoy some weekend. We slept in then went to Missoula for project materials. We need to replace the majority of the wood trim on the house which will then also need painted, which of course means painting the entire house. It's stucco so in some ways that's easier, but the two-story factor is going to be a beast. We ended up buying two tiers of scaffolding. By the time we drive an hour to rent some and an hour back and rent it for several weeks we aren't coming out too far behind on the $350 cost. Add in that owning it will mean we can work around the weather and our work schedules better and I don't think it was the worst investment ever. Our neighbor (that we borrowed the pole saw from last week) was especially excited about the prospect of borrowing it :) and did lend us some rope and straps to secure it to trees. It's going to be a bit of an acrobatic feat even with it, but least it's almost nev[...]

9:41am: Monday again. Feeling tired, but good. Back to my routine, no more excuses. So, there's a walk/run type thing in my future.  I had just gotten myself up to 20-25 miles a week, so that's where I aim to get again. And with March Madness tailing off, that should be easier as well. :)

I decided to skip the MCM.  It sounds like my good friend will take the code, which makes me happy :)

Tomorrow is the last day of CDF. I think I will move into the hybrid plan of CDF next--it alternates MMA workouts with some from other series such as Insanity, T25, P90 and Hammer & Chisel.

Think I will drop the Cize, just not meant to do those moves and I feel like I'm mailing in the workouts in order to catch on to the choreography. Might add 22 minute Hard Corps in place. 
With the 10K on Saturday, I think I am going to just focus on yoga after my CDF finishes tomorrow then resume the CDF hybrid / 22 min hard corps next week.

Was at the Y and ready to swim this morning. As they opened the doors at 5:00, the employee stated that the lap pool was closed due to chemical imbalance and they were not sure when it would open. I had an appointment at 7:00 for my car to have a recall with the airbag repaired, so I didn't have a sport bra, shorts, etc with me to lift or do anything else. I had planned on swimming and then leaving from there directly to the car appointment. :-( I had to go home. Didn't have enough time to get on the trainer. I tried to take a nap on the couch, but I was not able to fall asleep. What a waste of a morning. Also bummed because I have a hair appointment for highlights on Thursday evening, so I will not swim Friday morning. It looks like it might be only 1 swim this week.

Incision update - it is basically healed, but there is still a small hole that is not closed. Clear fluid occasionally drains from this. Strange. If the ocean temp is up to 60 degrees, then I think I will be[...]

Definitely had a pretty good weekend. I got to get the yard looking nice and watched some bball.
Really looking forward to getting into the gym tonight and start really focusing on some weight training.
I booked a cruise for me and my wife in OCT to Cozumel!  Very excited, also excited because two of our very good friends are also thinking of going, so that will be super fun. This is the first year I will have taken two vacations in a year, but I earned it!
It also gives me a goal for my workouts!!!!

I ordered new shows off Amazon that are the exact same as what I'm currently wearing. Since its "last years model" it was at a pretty good price. Despite not being eligible for Prime delivery it gave a delivery range of March 21-24. Well, those dates have come and gone and the tracking number doesn't even really show that's in transit. Despite the $ deal I can't really afford to wait on these shoes with race day a month away. I've already contacted the seller telling them to have them delivered by mid-week or expect a cancellation. I've recently dealt with this kind of situation with a Xmas gift via Amazon and it didn't get delivered until an entire month+ had passed (I did get a full refund though). I'm just no in the mood to mess around with getting shoes.

The birds are singing! It's grey today but promises to be warm - can't help but feel spring in the air! I am still however, a little cranky. Obviously, I am not sleeping as well because, well, i am 8 months pregnant. I am getting more uncomfortable and crampy. I have some serious stuff to finish at work and i just kind of want to check out. Anyway, 14 work days left. My co-workers assure me i am not waddling but I am slower, less sure. I don't like not doing my normal activities but even though i could swim, it's at 8:30pm and i am just too tired to make it there at the end of the day ... 
House is making good progress, they are nearly done with underpinning our basement. It's kind of crazy actually - these new footings right under the 1926 foundation. One thing can be said about Toronto's crazy real estate market: houses that normally would not be so rehabilitated but sold instead are being given new life to last another 100 years. After they are done the footings, they'll do[...]
