House is sold; Sleepless night.

Lisa and I have sold our house! We have a signed contract, and things are looking good at this point. The best part is the new owners have agreed to lease the home back to us until the end of the year. Our new home is expected to be completed sometime in December, so it looks like we’ll be able to avoid the dreaded “double move”. Selling our house in this market is a remarkable feat in and of itself, but not having to move twice is a huge bonus that we never thought would happen.

Lisa celebrated last night with a couple glasses of wine and some junk food, but I stuck to my planned diet and “no alcohol” mandate 100%. I’m bulking right now, and deviating from my plan is not an option. Believe me, I had a very pleasant buzz just from the news that our house had sold!

Unfortunately I woke up at 2:00 AM this morning and could not fall back asleep. My mind was racing with a barrage of thoughts centered around the countless tasks that we must accomplish before the move. For some reason everything seems amplified in the middle of the night. I’m sure just about all of you know what I’m talking about. I felt stressed and overwhelmed, and didn’t drift back off to sleep until sometime after 4:30 AM. Of course the dogs woke me up at 6:00 AM sharp for their breakfast, so I’m feeling a little tired right now. Funny how all those things that kept me from falling back asleep seem far more manageable in the morning…

Anyway, despite being a little tired I’m in very good sprits this morning. I’m looking forward to today’s “core” workout: back & biceps! Despite the low volume, I expect my biceps to get very sore from today’s workout. Like my triceps (which feel like they’ve been mauled by a pack of wolves right now), I did no direct bicep work all summer long.

I need to go start roasting my red potatoes. Happy Friday!
