8:38am: A too-short, exhausting weekend -- but, a good weekend. Hamilton was so awesome. My second time seeing it and I'm still absolutely blown away by it.
Busy day at work. It's a Monday, ya know?

Off to DC.  Hotel has a nice fitness center at least.  Fitness center is pretty nice, 3 ellipticals, three or 4 treadmills, one recumbent bike.  One universal with all the weights and straps (no seated leg press/ extols though.). Two benches, some mats, BOSU balls and a pilates ball...Roman chair.  I was annoyed by the canned music playing, but found the volume to cut it off so tomorrow's workout will be better.
There is a small pool here, was going to swim but there were a dozen poorly supervised children playing in it.  #notworththeaggravation.

Looking to build on last week and hope my body doesn't fall apart (again...) in the meantime.  Back is hurting for the first time in few days this morning, we'll see how the lunch ride and afternoon swim help or hurt.

Steady state ride. Training myself to keep power in a tight range over the course of a ride.

So exhausted. Every movement seems like monumental effort. I have so much to do before I leave Sunday and have just barely been able to get some sort of start on some of it.

Kids are in camp 5 days this week and I've got a show deadline Friday, so I'll be locked in the studio. Having a hard time getting going this morning. Tired, and maybe too much wine with friends last night ;) Have a happy hour with the women's team tonight, down in Littleton. I hate driving down, but I'll go just for some fun girl time. 
I'm frustrated with the art market again - it's hard not to get burnt out on the whole thing. I love to paint, and I love art, but sometimes I feel like I'm working for nothing when my galleries aren't moving work. I just want to feel like I have a job where I contribute a bit to the bottom line, otherwise, what's it all for? 
Nate and I have property under contract in Winter Park - goal is to build a duplex with 4 bedrooms on each side and do ski rentals. I agreed to manage the VRBO side of things rather than hire a management company, mainly because I just want to be doing something profitable right now, rather than doing this "wait a[...]

Moving truck is arriving today!! Which means I'm passing on the bigger place... if it were delayed another week it would make more sense, but as of now I'd have to re-route my stuff to storage for a week or two, then have it routed back to the new place... nope. I really like the place I have now. It's small, don't get me wrong, but for just me and Bentley and just for a year, it's great.
Truck is already delayed, so I'm at work for a bit until they call. Anxious the most to have my kitchen stuff and be able to cook at home! And have my treadmill and my bike! And my TV (Comcast is scheduled to be out Wednesday). It's like Christmas Eve.
Also - back on My Fitness Pal today. My bathroom scale will be here tonight, so I know I'll have a lot of work to do. Sore from last night's run - in a good way. Very motivated

Sometimes when it rains...... So three interviews so far this week. While that may seem great (and I know it is), the anxiety is just building. Imposter syndrome. But the savings can only last for so long and I cannot get used to not working for much longer. But at least the "Black Cloud" has been over me too much the last few days. Gardening, working out, BBQ with a friend, it all helps.

Even though I took it easy on Saturday my knee bothered me all weekend.  Seems to be fine today.  I guess I need to incorporate a warm up in to my workouts.  Historically I've just stepped out the door and started running/jogging.

Steroid injection in my L foot last Friday to address lingering problems from 2 avulsion fractures in December. So far so good. The lidocaine has worn off and it's somewhat sore but feels much better than it has in months. This was the last option before surgery and I really hope it works!!

Took a tumble in last mile of yesterday's run, little sore but I think I will live.
