No Week 14 Results

Saturday, October 20, 2012

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 emoticon

I got some much needed rest emoticon 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!

    Glad you enjoyed your stay in San Diego. It is pretty down there.
    Yes, these days travel never seems to go as planned. Guess best thing is to expect it and then be pleasantly surprised when nothing happens :)
    Enjoy your weekend.
