I just got home from work. The crazy thing is I didn’t get in until noon and still worked a nine hour day. 

I spent my morning cuddling with this beauty until my wife got home and we swapped. The baby was up vomiting all night and running a fever. She is not a cuddler by nature so I loved very second of it!!

I did the elliptical for 30 minutes tonight. I clearly haven’t mastered how to take a photo while on the machine. It’d probably be better to not post the photo but it’s my evidence. And my blog.

5 miles. 53:13. 10:39 pace. 

Slow and steady. Felt good the entire time. I could have and probably should have kept going. 

I’m now waiting to get a haircut and then going home for a nap!

Great day today!

I mowed the lawn and power washed half of the house.

Kids’ soccer, dance, and art class.

Buffalo Wild Wings for the second night in a row:)

30 minutes on the stairclimber. 

This was followed by Buffalo Wild Wings. There are no pictures as I nearly inhaled them. I love the Thai Curry sauce.

WIF

233.7

Basically stayed the same this week. I’ll take that as a win. I’ve lost the past few weeks. 

This work week is finally over. Now for the gym and some dinner.

3 miles. 28:42. 9:34 pace 

Long day at work  I’ve also had several late nights this week making me very tired and a little cranky. I’m looking forward to sleeping in past 4:30 on Saturday. 

I promised my wife I’d stay up to watch the premiere of Parenthood tonight. I’ll do my best to make it until 10. 

I’m also committing to a 5 mile run this weekend. Someone hold me accountable.

30 minutes on the bike. 9.6 miles. 

I attended the funeral of a co-worker’s sister this morning. I actually left inspired and energized. That was the first time I’ve ever left a funeral that way. Maybe that’s a good sign. Or a good eulogy.

3.15 miles. 30 minutes. 9:32 pace. 

It was a good run and took my mind off the day as I raised my heart rate and watched CNN. 

My 9 year old made the 5 year old a fortune teller yesterday (think square paper folded). In addition to learning which Ninja Turtle you’d be you also asked a yes or no question. He told me 3 times that no, I would not have a good day at work today. I’m not very superstitious but that will no longer be the question I ask. 

In the shower this morning I had fleeting thoughts of a day off but there was too much to do.  The benefit is that had I not been there much of today would have carried over to tomorrow and I would have been on the phone with work all day today. 

Then I learn that Runsforredvelvet is in St. Louis and didn’t contact me. 

I’m hoping tomorrow redeems itself.
