Wow how have I not written anything in two days. It seems like the past couple days have gone by without a lot of memorable events yet were filled to the point that I didn’t even think about writing down what was going on. I the hopes of covering a lot of stuff in a post that’s not horribly long time to dive right in.
It’s hard to believe that it is October already, seems not that long ago I was packing up the Explorer saying my goodbyes and coming out here. Yet here I am,, having taken on all the various hurdles that have come up this summer, and in many ways it feels like I have passed with flying colors. The news on the job front is that the park wants to keep me as long as possible. Right now I know I have another month, I might even get till Thanksgiving, but who knows right now I’m just thankful to have a job. I’m also still getting to know the people that are at Sports Evolution Crossfit and enjoying my time with them more and more. They’re a great group of people and find myself having a hard time leaving after doing Outlaw without staying around at least for a while to hang out and chat while they get ready to warm up. This leads to me doing a number of the WODs they’re taking on each week. Today was one of those day, I walked in the door and warmed up just before 4, finished my workouts and hung out a bit and found myself taking on the class WOD at 6 because it seemed like a good one. I’m really thankful that I have this group of people around now. It’s been a huge improvement to my life here and it makes me think that if asked I would stick around through the winter if they found the funds to pay me. Also over the last couple days I’ve played around with new recipes and tried my hand at making a Butternut Squash Soup, it was delicious. I really like the flavor and it is a great part of a meal on these cooler fall days. I have a feeling that it will show up more and more as the fall goes on. I may even have to introduce it to the family at the Thanksgiving meal. They make me cook my own Paleo offerings since they don’t want to have the entire family eat the food I do. Don’t know why, my food is delicious. Then this weekend I’m on the road and headed to NYC. This is going to be a great trip and I’m really excited to see the city and have a good time. Other events from the last couple days include:
-Starting to get a handle on packing some stuff into boxes now that the weather is changing.
-Rocked my way through season one of Prison Break, forgot how much I liked this how.
-Managed to still have Pumpkin Pie from last week’s baking extravaganza, it’s still awesome and I’m working to limit my intake since I could eat the whole thing at once.
-Cleaned the house like a boss, love having a clean place.
-Made plans to meet a Paleo lady while in NYC, should be interesting I’m really excited she’s very cute and I hope we hit it off.
-Trying to be patient while I wait to hear when the article about me for the Crossfit Journal is going to be published.
-Hoping to make it to Pittsburgh in two weeks for the Practical Paleo book signing.
