tired and wired

I just had my fourth Diet Coke and I'm trying to resist grabbing another. I was up at 5am with MoBob and now I'm really feeling like crashing. Plus I think I'm getting a cold.

I'm not sure why I feel tired after any sort of physical exertion. I'm envious of the majority who feel better after working out. I'd rather take a nap.

After the big proposal push on Friday, I'm now catching up on emails and other odds and ends. Mainly getting ready for my trip to NYC next week. I haven't been to NYC for, oh, ten years. I won't have much time for sightseeing unfortunately. I asked MB if he wanted to accompany me especially with the $40 round trip fare on "the upscale bus" and the $99/night room at The Pod Hotel but he demurred.

I'm attending the parallel NGO forum and then the first day of a conference at the UN. I wasn't really impressed with the UN when I visited. It was so much shabbier than I expected, and way too retro for me. Perhaps now the public areas have been upgraded, post-Nobel Prize.

It feels great after your body gets used to it. Though until then, it can feel hellish. It's also important to know the limitations of your body. The trick is to push the limits, but not too much. I don't when you started exercising, but it might take from one week up to a month, depending on you or your exercise regimen.

Hear hear. My father was the military liaison to UN from 2000 till 2001, and I wasn't very impressed myself.

What she said. After you build up, you'll feel awesome after you exercise. Until your body gets used to it, you'll either feel like ass or you'll just want to sleep until it All Goes Away.

I used to be pretty active - playing tennis or swimming every day - but never got an energy rush. Even now, I walk everywhere, and get a guaranteed workout of 20 minutes each way to work, but I just feel tired. Blah.
