Ended up putting off my workout until the end of the day.  Had a lot to do to get ready for travel to Texas tomorrow.  Just glad to get in an elliptical workout in before bed.  #TrainWithCliff

Today was one of those days where I was feeling a little "down." I still have those from time to time, especially after returning from a lengthy and enjoyable vacation.I have found myself sleeping in later than normal since I returned from Europe.  Thankfully, I have been able to get in several hours of productive work each day this past week.Today, I completed some very important tasks in my business.  Though I'm still a bit behind schedule on others.Thankfully, I had a strength training session scheduled with my personal trainer today.  As a result, I stopped what I was doing, left my office and headed to the gym.I did a one hour back and biceps workout.  Joe pushed me hard today.  Lots of sweat!  My arms are rubber.  Yet I feel better than I have all day.  #TrainWithCliff

I completed a 24 mile ride in 88 degree heat with super high humidity. #TrainWithCliffI drank a total of 104 oz of electrolyte drink during the ride. That's nearly an ounce for every minute I rode.At an average of 13 mph, I burned approximately 1,500 calories.

Just completed an 11.1 mile bike ride. #TrainWithCliff It felt so good  to be on my bike again after my two week vacation.I'm happy to report that I ended up losing two pounds while in Europe. We walked between 7 to 15 miles a day, every day of our trip.

We are home after 18 hours of total travel time. Chilling on the couch for a few minutes before running to get some Chipotle for dinner.

We had an amazing time in Amsterdam yesterday.  The only regret is that we didn't get a photo of our whole family with Fr. Roderick.  He was our personal guide for the whole day and my family fell in love with him.  Now they all understand why I love Fr. Roderick so much.We ended our day in Amsterdam with a visit to the Anne Frank house.  It was totally worth the 2 hour wait in line and a perfect way to wrap up our two week trip to Europe.We are now on board DL135 heading to Detroit.  From there, we'll grab a connection to Cincinnati.This has been an adventure of a lifetime.  So glad we did this!

Wow!  What an amazing day/evening.  I spent the day in Amersfoort, the home of my great friend, Fr. Roderick Vonhögen. We had Dutch pancakes, I got to visit Fr. Roderick's home and see his podcast studio and we had gelato while recording a special crossover episode of PABL and The Walk.We also enjoyed an awesome 15.4 mile bike ride. It felt so good to be on a bike again.  I am tempted to move to Amersfoort.  The bike paths in The Netherlands are just absolutely the best thing ever!!!! #TrainWithCliff

One thing that I will not miss from Europe are the streets full of people doing this. I think that 80% of those on the streets of London and France smoke.I think I'll have to go on the patch from all the withdrawal from the second hand smoke.

We just barely made it back to the bus that is taking us from Disneyland Paris back to central Paris.Bus ran out of seats. Meagan and I are standing.  McKenna was sitting on Stephanie's lap, but she decided that sitting on the floor was more comfortable.As you can see from this photo, she's wore out from the day.
