Back from my travels, and happy that Mr. Handsome-and-Handy is, too! My semi-solo parenting weekend-I had help from my folks-went well. The kids were great during the trip (and the long, long drive there and back again). The Lompoc Sprint Triathlon was SO FUN! I had a fantastic time, and I'm working on the race report. Mr. H&H's trip was a solemn one, but he did enjoy spending time with his family during the trip.
Not making much progress on my reading. I didn't get much reading done. I did enjoy Foodie McBody's excellent post, "Double Book Review: Battle of the Spiritual-Eating Stars." Darned if her insightful review had me flip-flop a bit on which book was better! Although, I'd still recommend them both, with the caveat that one or the other may resonate better with a person. One thing I forgot to mention in my comment over there was that although Ms. Roth talks a lot about her retreats and the positive feedback she received from those who attended, I didn't feel like I missed out, or needed to go sign up for one. Maybe because I get so much from interacting in the healthy living blogosphere.
Not 100% on my training plan, but I'm okay with it. Here's the DM chart. Road trip and "re-entry" played a bit of havoc with my training plan. I'm going to Cardio Sculpt class today, and I'm going to hit the last Pilates class tomorrow...I just wasn't in the up-before-the-crack mode yesterday.
Sustaining weight and good blood glucose levels. No change in weight. 7 day overall average was 103 and 7 day fasting average was 107.
I want to...
Work on my running.
Enjoy the last week of kids' summer vacation.
Finish hat #3 and get cracking on hat #4. I'm much happier with the pattern I'm using. Maybe it's partly the yarn, which will work better post-hospital for the preemie babies, but I'm going to try and adapt the pattern for the hospital-friendly yarn.
Finish reading Savor.
