Yes, I hated working with the ropes for fear of messing up and breaking the boat or hitting someone with the boom but it all worked out
Sailing is hard. It's not relaxing, you're always moving and working as a team and there is really very little downtime. I enjoyed it though and would do it again in a heartbeat! Special thanks to my sister for loaning me her sperrys, Austin for loaning me his notre dame hat, and my company for such a great, probably once-in-a-lifetime experience!
So after getting home from sailing we just got to work on packing, I made the video of our sail trip and uploaded it to our shared site for the program, had a couple of beers with Austin and called it a night! And now for a quick weight update. As you may remember, late last month I kind of freaked out about my weight. I had hit 125 and I knew why. SO, I set out to try to get that number down. I identified my weight gain culprits, which included beer, my work breakroom, events and not getting enough sleep. I also determined that I needed to start tracking again. Well, my weight never hit 125 again, and even got to 120. Today I was at 122 which i'm happy with - I just need to stick to my plan. I will say that while I feel I conquered the work breakroom and the sleep, I would give myself a C on tracking, beer and events. Those are definitely my areas of weakness, so here's to the next couple of weeks where, despite vacations, I hope to stick with it because it really does make me feel better, whether or not the number goes down.
Q: Are you happy with your weight right now? I am about 5-7 pounds out from my favorite weight - but overall, am happy with my weight and am glad my efforts are paying off!
Q: What's the coolest 'team-building' you've ever been on? I loved this one! We also did a cool scavenger hunt with San Fran's The Go Game a few years ago that I loved - really interactive with video/photos and actors and stuff - kinda crazy. And the orange jumpsuits were too much. LOL And cool that it was in midtown... although awkward when our team thought a person was an actor but they were really homeless... oopsie...
P.S. I'm behind on reading your blogs - eek - plan to catch up in the car tonight when we roll over to Alabama!
