Might do some Max 30 at lunch today then go the gym for a swim this evening.  
Headache is back, not as bad as yesterday.  Hope it settles down soon.
I wanted to play in our pool last night after I finished the Turbo Fire video but thunderstorms came rolling through again.  I am OVER the summer storms already!!

So happy to start July off with a peach square! I don't know if the weight loss is what is making it easier to walk faster, or if perhaps my general fitness has gotten better. Either way, it is nice to see.

I did have a bit of a goggle failure: didn't seat them properly, starting filling up with water during the warm up. No big deal, reseat at the wall and keep going. Except this time BOTH eyes completely fill with water. Here's today's lesson: instead of swimming with eyes shut and swimming directly into a lane divider, I should have flipped over, emptied the water, reseated, and then kept going. That would have been practice. I'll remember that for next time.

I'm trying to figure out my options for biking this weekend.  I just cannot do anymore hills right now!  I also don't have time to drive down to the Eastern Shore.  So... I am thinking of getting up early and riding the W&OD trail starting at 6am and covering the entire thing from Shirlington to Purcellville (45 miles) and back.  Hopefully I'll get most of it in before the trail gets too crowded (and it gets too hot!).  I've been looking at the weather and last night called for thunderstorms Friday morning, so if that keeps up, I may take off Thursday.  Not excited about blowing a vacation day for this, but I just HAVE to get in some miles this weekend, am planning my run on Saturday with the run group, and Sunday I'm in Philly for a 1st birthday party.

I know everyone is dying to know what I'm doing about my lawn situation. Like a lot of things in life, I'm taking a middle road. I'm having the $35 per mow company get me through this summer, mowing every other week so probably six times. Maybe seven. Then I'm going to buy a new lawn mower next spring. Yes it's going to cost me a bit this summer, but based on my past IM training summers and how my lawn ACTUALLY looked (awful) - I'm okay with it. Also I can budget/save for a new machine between now and next spring.
Mentally preparing for another 20-mile ride tonight, it will be 97 degrees.

When I first entered my swim from this weekend I inaccurately put it down as 800 yards. The swim was 1/2 mile so it was actually 880 yards. For some reason 2:20/100 sounds so much better to me than 2:30 or slower :) Ha. Whatever. It was slow and time to get into some swim shape for the YWCA women's tri which I'd really like to kill this summer. 1.5 months to do some running, biking and swimming and hopefully rock that race.

shower door installed yesterday but still wrong. Adjusted today and finally showered in the damn thing. Dave loves it. Me, its a nice shower, but not worth all the bs and $. He is a happy, so I am happy for him.

Fascia is repaired. I got up and cleaned the gutters, and the painter guy got some of the uppers. Not the ones that face our neighbor of course. Don't have a ladder tall enough for that, but they need to be cleaned. Baby trees are growing!

Dave repaired some items that needed attention today too. Overall a kind of productive day.

Sadly, prepping dinner I looked out the window and there was a dead bird on the deck, and its baby (almost full sized but a fledgling) sitting next to it. The girl went out and picked it up in her hand. I got her birds "bubble" travel case and she contacted a bird rehabber. We keep it safe overnight, feed it in the am and hopefully baby bird will fledge and be flying in a day. It was so sad seeing it just sitting by its mama[...]

I am starting my "3 things" list again. I find it really helps me to focus on positive things at least a little bit each day, just to stem the tide on negativity.
Starting today:
1. I am glad Jim is home and had a wonderful trip
2. I can see progress in reclaiming the property
3. My Mom is healthy and sane (as sane as ever anyway). :)
and the work day got away with me. No lunch break so no work out. Imma gonna have to get up early.
