Thursday, April 17

Nutrition: Slow, leisurely, quiet first breakfast at home. Chatty second breakfast with Holea at Trav's. THIRD breakfast at supper!

Sleep: 7 hours in bed, 930p-430a, 80% quality. Solid but not too long. Woke naturally and tossed & turned about 330a onward. Got up feeling fine, but suspecting it might catch up to me tomorrow, which will surely make travel day even more delightful. Had a long, slow, leisurely breakfast to make up for it.
Healthy Movement: Feeling great. Session was incredibly easy, childishly annoyed with Dustin. Told him he was no fun today, then immediately told him it was acceptable payback for my 4 months of no fun.

Fun & Play: Lunch with Holea was ├╝ber fantastic, great topics, and just plain old great friendship time. Bunch of fun at NSS. Totally emotional when leaving, so many well-wishes, even down to Holea having her four athletes wish me luck! Feeling the love. Fetch with Lexi in the sunshine. Laziness with all the critters & the hubs.

Wednesday, April 16

Nutrition: Solid, easy. Starting to chomp up the salty carbs already, NOM NOM NOM. Also got a grapefruit given to me, direct from a coworker's parents' tree in Texas. Shared it with my Buddy, and 'twas delicious!

Sleep: 7.75 hours in bed, 9p-445a, 85% quality. Dozing a bit in the early AM, otherwise nice & solid.

Healthy Movement: Feeling good, bit of low back blah but I was very conscious of NOT standing dumb and that helped. Snowstorm meant no run outside, lest this be the one I finally biff it and smash myself into pieces. Debated the treadmill, but given how much I hate it AND how often it's bothered me, it just plain didn't feel worth it. So I rested like a champion. Would've done yoga with Holea but she is a sad li'l sicko this week. Started my packing instead.

Fun & Play: Productivity! Lunch AND break time with mah buddy. Made plans to second-breakfast with Holea tomorrow. Great packing progress.

Tuesday, April 15

Nutrition: A slow-moving breakfast since I was up so early. Lovely.
Sleep: 7.25 hours in bed, 915p-430a, 76% quality. I think that's due to the low quantity. Quality was absolutely solid until 4a, when I woke and couldn't fall back thanks to a snoring hubs. Since I felt pretty rested at that point, and also he's on week two of a shitty cold, I resisted the urge to shake him awake. Got up feeling pretty good and had a leisurely morning that helped even more.
Healthy Movement: Still some left-low-back aching today. Knock it off, yo! Session was excellent; reached 11 pull-ups again, and even got to nail a 115x2 bench (not a PR, but still totally badass) - that Dustin boy sure knows how to happy up my brain!
Fun & Play: Session. Spent time working over my Boston inspiration file, 'tis a beautimonious thing. Yet another great Comm Ed class, and this time it really paid off, got a gift certificate for a flat of native plants from Glacial Ridge Growers!

Monday, April 14

Nutrition: Yesterday I didn't have the proper salad ingredients, so I roasted what I had: cauliflower, peas, peppers. Unlike a salad, that ain't no meal; so I turned it into a side for second breakfast, which was fantastic, of course. 

Sleep: 7.75 hours in bed, 915p-5a, 79% quality. Felt much better; SC shows a lot of awake time but it must've been me boy Oscar, because I was out like a light.

Healthy Movement: Body feeling a little better every day. Ankle & shoulder both improving, not significantly though. Logged sets of chins post-class & post-run. Run was solid, felt pretty easy to keep a fast-ish pace. Would love to feel this good all the time! Wore compression socks post-run. Am feeling a SLIGHT touch of low-left-back ache, but not concerned.

Fun & Play: Fun class. Fun Boston talk throughout the day. Fab email from Dustin regarding the great reporting I created for NSS. Delightful meeting with Mike & Brett on the walk to run concept. It's gonna happen, and I get to lead it, and we'll create more runners, hooray!

Sunday, April 13

Nutrition: Too much coffee and too much food. So, a great day!

Sleep: 9 hours in bed, 10p-7a, 76% quality. Up at 415a for bathroom, nearly h/s/g but would've fallen right back...but I had to also let Hank out within 5 minutes of going back to bed. Oscar also dashes out, but I left him out there. Fell back after that, made it all the way to 7a! Better than 76%, but SC doesn't like my deep deep sleep. Well, I sure do!

Healthy Movement: Ankle about the same. Left shoulder about the same. Dustin said I'm not allowed to play with my toys today. I can look at them or clean them, but that's it. MAN. So I did a few sets of chins and only used this basement toy instead: 

Fun & Play: Bill paying, which included a lesson to Hop about the state of our financials, which is damn awesome for kids our age. Lunch with the parents, belly stuffed with tasty, tasty meats. Many chores knocked out. Massive excitement that Mike is "in" on the walk-to-run plan. Pure & utter laziness.

Saturday, April 12

Nutrition: Easy peasy. Toast and coffee before the run, then three normal meals. Added an eve snack since calories were coming in low. I like!

Acne: 99% sure it's the banana chips, with their added sugar. Sadness, because they are god damn delicious. At least I still have bacon.

Sleep: 8.25 hours in bed, 930p-545a, 90% quality. Up to let Hank out at 330a, water/macaroon/bathroom for me while I was up. Took a while to fall back, and alarm woke me for the run. Got up fairly rested. 

Healthy Movement: 6 easy miles in the AM. There was walking in the second half for Heidi, but I could've nailed the whole thing. Happy feeling! After that, sheer proper lazying.

Fun & Play: Great fun run including chatting with Heidi about the walk to run, trails, & our doggy pooches. Breakfast with two of my besties. Lunch out with my "big sis" followed by hours of chitchat. Dad's bookwork. Supper out with the hubs. Snuggling with the Hank.

Nutrition: Craving fats again. NOM NOM NOM. 

Sleep: 9 hours in bed, 845p-545a, 93% quality. Woke h/s/g at 3a, but able to fall back, not soundly though.

Healthy Movement: Good lazy day. 

Fun & Play: Friday mode. Afternoon at NSS, though sadly empty.
