This afternoon, I felt my energy draining, so I took a break and did something I've never done on a break - I hopped on the elliptical for a few minutes. It did give me the energy to get through the afternoon. On the downside, I was STARVING at dinner and overate big time.
Balance in all things is still a problem!

I did not blog last night - started to and realized I had nothing to say.
I heard a great speech at the VA Toastmaster club. This was a second speech and she just bluew me away. She was talking about her job as a recreational therapist at the VA and, wow, this lady is going to be a contest speaker and winner in no time. She had passion, she had a fully developed speech, great eye contact...on and on! WOW
The officers are going to be out the rest of the week for the Board meeting. I had to call the director of legal and ask a tax question. He asked me to do some research on it and come to him on Friday. This was progress! He has not let me do statute research in at least a year. I love doing paralegal stuff!
This evening, I did 13 minutes on the elliptical! It was not the one I usually use and it was not set right. It felt really hard to do, but I exceeded my goal.
I had nearly an hour walk today and part of it was very brisk.
I was high in sodium but within range in everything else, so that is progress, too! WOOHOO!
Feeling great! I know I'll sleep well!

I did a short kettlebell workout this morning. It felt wonderful! Not much exercise otherwise - a lack of energy. The evening concert fell through and I was not disappointed because it let me stay home to watch the televised ring ceremony for the World Champion San Francisco Giants!
The mlb picture of the t shirt does not do the ring justice. It is white and yellow gold. One side of the ring has the Golden Gate Bridge in yellow gold on a white gold background. The other side shows the trophy. At the base of the trophy are 5 diamonds signifying the 5 championships for the New York Giants. The center of the trophy has a mandarin orange garnet (I had never heard of one of those) and, below the trophy is the banner for the player's name. The top of the ring has the interlocking SF in white gold a-glitter with diamonds trimmed in yellow gold. Beautifully done by Tiffany. I've never wanted anything fron Tiffany, but I am coveting this! HA!
They brought back most of the Giants Hall of Famers (Gaylord Perry, Willie McCovey, someone else and, of course, Willie Mays. Two other HOF players could not make it. In the audience was my favorite player, Will Clark!
The Giants wore jerseys with gold numbers and names - I really liked the look and wish they could keep it for this year, but I think there are rules about that.
The ownership has taken great pains to include the fan base, past players, fans from previous years = this is for all of us, they say. The trophy has toured northern California, Nevada, Oregon and New York. I have not seen it.
It was very emotional.
It makes me think about the hard work the team put into the season last year. I need to strive for that same excellence in everything I do - eating right, exercising, work, life...!

I am tired but not sleepy. This was a tough week. Nonstop busy and too much so. I did get 2 10-minute sessions on the elliptical this week. Not much else for exercise, though I had moderate step counts on my pedometer every day.
The response to the subpoena was served late today, so I'm out of the picture until something else happens. That frees me up to return to the other work that has been delayed. The officers will be out all next week, so it should be quieter, but no less busy.
Tomorrow night we are going to a concert in SF. I don't really want to go, but I'm going and BF will go with Yvonne and me in a couple of weeks on a hike as a trade.
I'm planning on a long walk tomorrow. I also hope to do some kettlebell work!

OK, that's a misleading title. I ended up really hungry at dinner and ate too much! Not happy about that and my tummy is unhappy. I also did 10 minutes on the elliptical. It was actually harder than when I did the same on Tuesday. I was about 3 minutes into it when two guys came in, stretched for a nanosecond, picked up some weights and did about 5 curls and left. It sounded as if they had just come in from a jog. At 5 minutes, I almost gave up, but I thought about this blog and kept going. At 8, my legs started to burn and the last minute or so was really hard. But I did it!
