Arapahoe Basin, CO. 2012. #tbt
Proud of myself for getting up at 6:00 today and heading straight for the treadmill before the kids woke up. I’m not a morning person, but I’ve been sleeping better with exercise. I’ve had a good streak going in February despite lots of celebrations with food. Back on CICO, doing my best.
Four weeks after New Year’s and I nearly had the place to myself.
While I’ve been doing a decent job of meal planning and trying out new recipes, I think much of the time I’d be happier just eating a bowl of cereal or having a sandwich.
Hey @maique, happy anniversary! Beautiful couple. Apparently we got married within a few weeks of each other because this month also marks 6 years married to my best friend (Feb 10).
I had a very writing and editing-heavy day at work. I started making dinner early, which took about an hour, and then played outside with the kids and roughhoused for 45 minutes. This somewhat shockingly only got me to 2500 steps. I did 40 more minutes of walking on the treadmill (2.2 miles) and now I’m only at 7066 steps. It’s no wonder we get fat with such sedentary jobs. I need to start walking while working.
Moonrise on the Oregon Coast and a few moments of peace while walking the dog last night before settling in with the kids.
Sticking with our yearly tradition that we started in 2016 of going to the coast the week of my birthday. Fingers crossed for some decent weather, but in all likelihood we’ll be at the pool!
I was between site visits today and lucky enough to have a few moments to spare, so I stopped at one of my favorite little pull-offs where I used to sometimes stop to eat my sack lunch. A lovely day, and grateful for where I landed in this world. #pdx #pnw
Seeing the crazy drop off and pick up line at our neighborhood elementary school makes me so grateful that we live less than a half a mile away.
When your organization requires you to take a 12 week leadership course but the only time you have to do it during the day is typically your lunch break while on the treadmill.
Out for an evening stroll.
Test drove a Model Y today (my birthday) and this was my first time seeing a Cybertruck in person. Honestly a bit smaller than I expected by the photos I’d seen.
Sometimes I look at my daughter and she looks a bit like my brother did when he was a kid. Wish he could’ve met her.
Any ideas as to what would cause iOS Safari to very regularly do this after a page has already fully loaded?
I search for a page, click it, it loads, then moments later it reloads to a screen like this. No extensions are enabled and it happens most often to news sites.
Love being a dad, but one of the most difficult things for me having little kids is not being able to talk with my wife without some sort of constant interruption. Every time I open my mouth to speak, there’s a kid yelling, needing help, getting hurt, fighting, etc. The struggle is real at this age.
I must be a masochist, I woke up at 5:45 to book a campsite at the coast on a weekend in mid-August before they evaporated.
They say success in life is 80% showing up. For a person with anxiety, that’s exhausting. It means constantly mustering emotional energy to be braver than you are naturally capable of being, every day.
This weekend I booked a beautiful rental in Venice and started looking at places in the Dolomites. It’s starting to feel more real and I’m getting excited for my first real trip abroad since 2007. Hopefully the first of many to come given how different my life circumstances are these days.
She disappeared and we found her sitting in the dining room by herself 😂
Fun in Olympia today on our 6th anniversary.
My old college dorm mate is now a VP at Rivian. I was momentarily jealous until I remembered the average home in Silicon Valley is about $2.5 million with monthly property taxes higher than what I pay in an entire year.
I’m at the age where my back cracks whenever I sneeze.
You’ll have bad times, but it’ll always wake you up to the good stuff you weren’t paying attention to. - Good Will Hunting
Taking a moment to recognize this time in my life as “the good stuff” and to pay attention.
