Something that impacted my blogging this Fall was the process of buying and selling my home. I had wanted to live in another town closer to my office for quite some time and the time was finally right to make that move. It took about two months to list and actually sell my house and once a contract was in place the time flew by.
I moved around Labor Day and dealt with moving the same weekend as racing three triathlons. Yikes!!! Thankfully I have an amazing family and awesome sisters who helped me clean the house and unpack. The next months were spent slowly making the house my home and finishing my training for my Grand Canyon Rim to Rim adventure.
When I returned from finishing Rim to Rim I quickly got absorbed in my job with a hectic schedule that left me little time for much else. The problem with this was that since October I had been trying to find the time to meet with my contractor to discuss flooring options for my home workout room. This was one of the rooms that I was most excited about with my new house...a room just for my gym stuff. Even better bonus was that my sister's treadmill was moving into my house too.
The house came with horrible carpeting that I replaced on move in day. I was undecided on the gym room so that was the only room still with the original carpeting. Fast forward to a few weeks before Christmas and discussing my wish list with my sister. I told her that my big wish was for someone to coordinate my contractor for me since it is so hard to get away from the office to meet him. And she did just that...she arranged for him to meet me on a vacation day after New Year's and I was able to finally get quotes and start arranging to have the flooring replaced.
It won't be done for a few weeks but tonight I got my bike set up and did my first trainer workout in my gym room. I'm still working on hanging the motivation wall. I need a few more race photos to go with the motivation quotes and I especially need to get a Grand Canyon photo printed to go with a cool Rim to Rim sign my parents got me for Christmas.
Here's the before and hopefully by February I'll have an after photo! This is a panoramic photo taken while riding the bike trainer.
