11/2/18- Slept through alarm by accident and missed boxing class with client S :( Great meeting with mentor T @ Crossroads Café in Hanover. Took advantage of the 50% off costumes at Spirit Halloween ;) Work in the afternoon (a Parkinson’s client shared his experience seeing “moving figures” on a nightly basis). Took the evening to decompress, recharge, and reset.

11/3/18- VETRN class (financial analysis is my arch nemesis). With a heavy heart, I put Halloween decorations back into their boxes and bags in the basement. 30 min strength training (+ speed bag work) and 45 min bike trainer.
