At week's end - at least for face to face meetings...

Friday, March 04, 2011

Well, the week has ended in terms of face to face contact with clients, but I have a ton of work to do over the weekend. At least I can do that weekend work in a very flexible way, in between dog walks, cardio, weights, etc. In spite of this week's pace, I managed to get in all exercise, food, etc.
More business travel on Monday, but after that things start looking a bit more normal...
Ahead for tonight: catching up and REST!

same story, different city

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

So my flight is delayed going home - by 2 hours... really busy day again - workday 10 hours, 1 hour of workout this morning in the hotel gym, now off to forage dinner in the airport before my flight is scheduled to leave... managed to eat well on the run (bought fruit whenever I saw it along the way for the between-meal snack i need to keep moving.) Have used flight delay to catch up on work. This week is alot to handle. Next week better in terms of schedule but see that eating well can happen no matter what the circumstances - and exercise is a choice.

    In spite of a very, very hectic schedule you made such wonderful choices! It isn't always possible, of course, but you really made the best of it. emoticon emoticon

Well a really long, but productive, day. Met all marks today. Very pleased (and very tired.)

Top 10 Things Learned Adopting & Raising a Severely Abused Rescue Dog

Sunday, February 27, 2011

So... my dog passed the AKC canine good citizen test yesterday - quite an accomplishment for a dog that was severely abused in puppyhood, rescued by kind people, and came to live with me 7 years ago, when she was 1. Here are the "top 10" things I have learned from her/been validated by in these years -

1. It's never too late to learn to trust people.
2. A 45 minute walk each day is an excellent antidote to life's worries.
3. Having a routine for the day is important - and comforting.
4. Greet each new day with boundless enthusiasm.
5. Continuous learning is a great thing (we take "classes" and do "training" together.)
6. Eat only what you need - there is more food for later.
7. Rolling in the grass & looking at the sky is a joyful experience (if it's the right kind of grass.)
8. Overcoming fear is a powerful tool.
9. Having a treat once in a while (but not too often) is just fine.
10. Love is a healing force.

On to another day of dog walking, cardio, weights, eating less than 1500 calories, catching up on reading, and getting some work done in advance of business travel this week (my routine!)

    I love your outlook on life. And to go thru what you have done for this dog and what she has done for you is absolutely amazing. Give yourself a healthy treat
