Hi Team!

I am going to keep this very short, sorry about the boring factor, but it is amost 11 and as you know I get up at 4:30.

I did sleep pretty well last night and in fact would still be sleeping if I had not set my cell phone as well as my alarm clock. Apparently I failed to reset the alarm clock last time so it didn't go off. But I awoke to the sound of Klaxons! (they are an obnoxious way to wake up, by the way!)

I drank 3 quarts today, though admittedly some of that was (gasp) Cherry Pepsi! I have been feeling a little discouraged and blue the last several days and I am starting to realize that my actions are reflecting that.

I did not get my walk in today because of the weather situation here and Coach Alex cancelled on me and I had a ton of work to do. I should have gone anyway as I cannot go wed or fri this week due to work. Pete only recorded 3,783 steps today, but in my defense, he did slack off a lot! I'm telling you, Squad 6 is calling Pete's name!

I guess that made me 2 for three, barely -kind of pushing it on the sleep thing. It looks like it will be a week of two's at best so I had better make them strong twos!

And that means bed... NOW!

Stay safe!

Report From Ladder Company 40 Day 90

Hi Team!

I am reporting a day late again. I HAVE to stop doing that!

Day 90 was a great day for me. I didn't break any records or over achieve any goals or anything like that. In fact I was feeling sick most of the day. The great part was that I slept!!!!

I had 9 hours of down time to sleep and then played hooky from church and slept some more. I went to church when the service was over so that I could attend the next to last choir practice before our holiday performance but then I came back home and had more rest, and even skipped quiz practice. It felt GOOD! =) Sometimes I get SO tired that sleep just won't come (unless it is totally inappropriate) and when I finally get a good long period of sleep it feels so amazingly good. Now I feel human again. (And I didn't have to resort to the mp3!! Yay me!)

I drank 2 1/2 quarts of peach tea during the day too. I didn't get that much exercise though. Pete only logged less than 1000 steps, but I know he was teasing. He has been playing Tarzan from his tether a lot again lately. I guess I will have to take him back to Washougal and threaten him with Squad 96 again! Shucks, now I have an excuse to go. =) hee hee

I guess I am two for three for the day. Coach Alex already cancelled on me for our Monday morning walk so I am going to take it easy then too. We have snow on the ground, though not much. People around here freak out at the sight of snow. It's really quite silly if you ask me. Sigh.

Until later, Stay safe!
