I’ve been home 5 days out of the last 26 days…I’ve been traveling more for work, then took a working vacation with Mr. McButterpants to San Francisco. I leave again in a week for two weeks. I told my boss that I need to limit travel starting in April because my son plays baseball and I am not willing to miss any of his games. She was so nice about it, “No problem, I understand completely.” Refreshing since so many bosses I have had in the past would not have been that understanding.
Our time in San Francisco was awesome. We rented an apartment about 8 blocks from the ocean. We have always stayed downtown or in Nobb Hill…this year we ventured out to the more residential, Outer Richmond. We worked during the day and explored in the afternoon and evening. It’s largely residential, so we didn’t have the sirens and city noise we have had in the past.
We walked, walked and walked some more. We explored Lands End and Golden Gate Park. We logged over 56 miles in a week…17 miles in one day! OMG, I could not have done that 75 pounds ago. I was tired, EXHAUSTED, but I was really proud of myself. Though we were tempted at times to call a cab, we just kept moving and finding new sights to explore. It was a beautiful day wondering through a beautiful city.
(One of my favorite spots at Fisherman’s Wharf…I could watch the sea lions for hours!)
We rented a convertible one day and hit the road. We stopped in Pacifica and went for what was supposed to be a little walk. It ended up being a 45 minute hike up a cliff. It was beautiful! Again, something I couldn’t have done 75 pounds ago!
(Our car is parked in that parking lot…)
I started back at hot yoga when we returned from San Francisco – it had been over three weeks since my last practice. Wow, it was hard. I didn’t feel good for a day or two after that first practice. I have gone two days in a row now and am getting back into the swing of things. I leave again next week, so I’ll lose it again! Ugh!!!!
