I was a bit tired and was going to do a 50 minute ride but decided to bag it when my power meter needed a new battery.

Work work work work work.

Work work work work work.
Stressing about one huge thing I need to check off my list; I am just waiting for a news director to call me back and accept the exclusive broadcast offer I pitched to him for our event Thursday. Nervous about all of this and producing results in the absence of the guy who got fired (this is technically his job). 
In our staff meeting today, I alone highlighted 12 huge projects/initiatives we are working on as a team. This does not include all of the daily stuff we do. Or stuff on my bosses list. She is out of town all week, so even more on my plate with random phone calls and questions since I'm the only person on her out-of-office reply. No wonder I am stress eating and gaining weight. Just gotta get through this week.

Took a rest day yesterday and it felt great. Not only did I get some things knocked off the to-do list around the house, but I didn't miss the pseudo-stress of trying to fit a workout in.

Went out into the garden and started weeding the area that I neglected (where lettuce and spinach need to be planted this fall) and was immediately attacked by mosquitoes. Ugh...I think I waited too late in the day to try that. Might give it another shot tonight. There's still time, it's just unsightly.

Today the property manager came back and told us the cleaning job wasn't good enough - after it was immaculate last week. Luckily my cleaning lady is understandable. I think this is ONLY because we didn't use a mass market type business. We used a small business that does a fabulous job. Really she has been cleaning my house since June every other week and is FABULOUS.

Still walking the dogs in the rain. I went with two until they pottied and I sent Chris back inside with them to start feeding and I went further with Gus. The walking is kind of nice but I wish the downpour of rain would stop.

Good news today: Meeting lady about ordering blinds for the new house today at 1pm. Getting excited. Close date is still on the 30th.

No O's game....we were both so exhausted from poor sleep that we decided to just walk around the Inner Harbor and have dinner.  We got the girls a couple of things.  Miss Thing loves all things corgi and we found her a pair of corgi socks.  We also found her another Prairie Woman cookbook and a basic one for Thing One who doesn't enjoy cooking at all.  John said I was snoring as soon as my head hit the pillow last night.  I remember waking up to go to the bathroom and looking at my phone for the time....thought I had slept through the night I had slept so deeply--and it was 1 AM.

We had crab cakes at Phillips--YUM....walked around the harbor, grabbed some gelato.  

Todays plan is Hammer Conditioning with 10 minute Ab Hammer and find a local trail to run.  There's a small lake behind the Whole Foods with a lot of different trails.  The main loop around the lake is 1.4 miles long.  Just enough for me since I am trying to[...]

Yesterday, I got into to the doctor in the afternoon. And got a bloodwork requisition. Usually i try to go to the clinic across from work first thing in the morning but i figured since I was already taking time off from work i would try the clinic near home - i figured i would have to wait but i walked in and there was not another soul there. Said they were open to 5. When a technician came out i could go straight in so that was a bonus. 
I still have some hours to make up though. 
Also, we heard that one of the contractors needed more time. He was very nice when we met him so we're happy to wait until Friday for that.

Stayed up waaaaaaay late Monday night. Plugged in a bunch of info into Undebt.it. Bad thing is that I didn't even remember that I had a profile/account set up from my tax time freak-out last year. Apparently we've paid off 10k since then (not including the house), so that's good. I'm frankly surprised that we don't owe more than we did then. The absolutely CRAZY thing is that if I could just get organized amazing things could happen. With just paying the minimum amounts on everything, nothing extra at all, if all I did was actually keep paying the same amount when things are paid off we would have everything including the house paid off in 6 years. I have been way too La, Di, Da in my approach. It's pretty ridiculous. I really have been trying to stop and think before I spend lately. A lot like eating better: It's not that hard, just have to stop and think first. Even canceled my hair cut for tomorrow. I really like the length and cut right now so why change [...]

From our trip Alaska in 2012, first you pull into Yakutat Bay, which funnels your ship into Disenchantment Bay. Only so many ships per day are supposedly allowed in there. This pic is from quite some distance away from Hubbard Glacier.  I had an earlier pic on IG that was taken from a couple of miles away of some calving. The sheer size of it all is mindblowing:
   
I am not the fastest runner, biker or swimmer. Although I am faster than a glacier, but not by much. But I will enjoy the journey and I will not stop. Those may be the only two traits I can hang my hat on, but I'm pretty sure those are two traits we should all strive for. ~ #triathlete #alaska #getoutside #roamtheplanet #LF10K
