The past week and a half have been less than routine, to say the least. Last week, I was in California for a conference. The weather was a welcome change from what we are having here in Wisconsin (as much as I love fall in Wisconsin, it's been rather cold and wet; the 60s and 70s of SoCal were nice).
Here's a shot of sunrise from the balcony off my hotel room, which overlooked Mission Bay:
I had a great time, met some wonderful people, and gained some new insights that will be helpful professionally, but eating was knocked off-kilter and I didn't get as much time for exercise as I had hoped. That didn't come entirely as a surprise.
Coming home on Sunday was a nightmare, to say the least. We ended up being diverted to another airport because of storms in Chicago, and then had to deplane because of a repair that had to be done on the plane (which was related to an issue that we had known about since we took off from San Diego -- a bit unnerving to know that we had been flying for hours with an issue that they suddenly *had* to fix). After many issues, I eventually arrived home roughly the same time that people are starting get their day started on Monday morning
I got some much needed rest
and then hit the ground running tying up the loose ends from my travel, setting up meetings with a client, and getting back into life at home. As a result, I didn't get a weigh-in recorded. I still made efforts to spark (even if only in spirit), so we shall see what Week 15 has in store!
I hope it has been a good week for you!
