Ever have one fo those days that shouldn't have been good at all and it turns out it was amazing?
That was my day today. I had a few bombs dropped on me at work, the type of things that would normally ruin the rest of your plans for the day and destroy your productivity. I managed though to get past the frustrations of those few things and really get a lot done today. I am still trying to get moved out of my old house, but like I said yesterday, one load at a time is how to get that job done. I was actually able to get a lot stuff moved today on my own and that will alleviate some stress as Tiff and I finish things up over there at that house.
I think the productivity today came from a good nights rest last night and a pretty good workout this morning. I was able to get in a pretty good workout, really focusing on a few of the things that are going to be on the test for my Orange Sash which will be coming soon. it wasnt a particularly long workout but it was a good sweat none-the-less. I really feel like it set the tone for the rest of the day. I was really intensely focused and I was able to focus on more than just simple "choreography" of movements and really focus on the intention of each movement. That kind of fierce, direct focus is what I think carried the day for me.
By far the best part of the day, (in spite of the fact that I bumped into multiple old friends) was that I did finally get the chemistry right on my pool. Hence the "Phenol Red" portion of the title which by the way is the substance used to determine Ph in pool water. As a result of getting the pool chemistry right, I was able to get the sauna going and to celbrate I brought home a bottle of decent champagne which Tiff and I ended up sharing ourselves.
We are pretty tired now and I am really looking forward to tomorrow mornings workout schedule
