Home sweet home!!! Yay :)
Added a few pics from the trip below...
We drove through Moab and on to Grand Junction yesterday, then did the final stretch home through the mountains today. It's unseasonably warm in Colorado. Great to get home to green grass and 70 degrees, but it makes me worried that we're in for a long fire season. Hopefully we get a few more snowstorms!
Getting things back in order. Kids are back to school tomorrow, I have a workshop next week to prepare for, house is sort of a mess. Already hit the store and bought a ton of healthy food. I'm back on the paleo/primal wagon this week. I ate so much carb-y processed stuff on vacation that I felt like dough by the end of the week despite actually riding my bike a bunch while I was there. Need to get my diet in line with my workouts. Also need to have a good week of ride this week since next week will be tough with a three day workshop. First race in less than a month!!
Hoping I can squeeze in a ride tonight, but [...]

I seriously thought about doing PiYo yesterday--but was concerned that the workout might increase the stress on the sore areas instead of help them.  That's why I stuck to stretching and light yoga type moves. 
Gym date with John and MrE tonight.
Tomorrow will be my last day sitting with my trainee.  Wednesday I will be in the office but in another spot as her back up and if that goes okay I'll work from home on Thursday and Friday still in the training mode but less hands on.  She's ready.  She has reviewed 3 different gastric bypass surgeries, 3 or more spine surgeries, a total knee replacement, hip replacement and hip resurfacing....a panniculectomy....multiple nursing home and rehab reviews.  Ready.

Junk food challenge Day 22!
Really happy with my graph over there. I missed about 35 minutes of biking on the planned long ride and strength training. Overall, pretty happy with that.
I was starting to worry about preparedness for my race and I went back to last year and March was crap. Other than doing a HM i am way ahead on biking so it's still entirely possible that I could do at least as well as last year. 
Oh and in super cuteness this morning. Felicity woke up and immediately asked to watch Frozen. she led me downstairs by the hand and and climbed up on the couch wanting me to turn it on.  We have my mom's blu ray copy that comes with the dvd so i parked her upstairs with her cereal watching Frozen on my laptop.  I probably should have just said no but it was early and she loved it. We did not have any issue getting her ready to go this morning. 
On Sunday she's 22 months.

"best day ever" took DD to the nature center to look for spring and also give her something to write about. Her English lessons have started paragraph writing now with this whole process of stating a topic sentence, 2 main points for that topic then supporting sentences to explain the details and a concluding sentence. OMG make it stop. Who writes these curriculums? Do they actually work with children? I mean can you possibly make the writing process any more boring, frustrating and unappealing? At least today she happily sat and wrote out a whole page when we got home about feeding the fish and geese on the pond. Hey I have an idea, why don't we actually provide an interesting experience for the children to write about and give them a purpose for their writing?

Swimming tonight.
Bought myself some new cycling gloves... Love these. And the padding on the palms...

Not my favorite color, but since they've been discontinued beggars can't be choosers.

Went out Saturday night for Mexican food and a couple of drinkies with the girls.

Yin yoga tonight
What I did this weekend: Took Emma to the vet on Friday evening.  She had two shots (Cerenia and Famotidine).  She was a new dog by the time we checked out.  Seriously.  She's on Rx dog food, Cerenia, Metronidazole (formerlly Flagyl) and 10mg Pepcid.  She is acting herself and has been since receiving the injections.  The bloodwork that they did on Friday was unremarkable. Went out for a belated anniversary dinner.  Our anniversary was on March 20th but we delayed a week due to Shamrock. Purchased shoes.  Ready to "potty like a rockstar" at RnR Raleigh. Went to REI.  Still deciding about the 920xt. Went to coffee with my parents.  My dad is really stressed about their upcoming move.  Sorry but who your cable provider will be and if you need a land line or not is not something that you should be losing sleep over.  (land line, really? they are already paying for two cell phones) Went to a hockey game on [...]

Last night was the first night in months that I didn't take any sleep meds and didn't wake up and stay awake in the middle of the night! Is it because of my higher effort workouts? Is it because I had a conversation with my boss earlier in the week that put my mind at ease a tiny bit about some work stress? Is it because I watched 3 episodes of Orange is the New Black (and subsequently had dreams that I was in prison)? 
Who knows, who cares! Sleep is glorious.
