So yes, I was out of town for a few days, and had limited access to my blog.
But I'm home now, and I'm definitely in need of getting back up again.
We went to Chicago for a few days...took the train into Union Station. That's a cool trip. It's about 5 hours from our house to Chi-town. It is so much easier than flying, since we literally pulled into a parking space at the train station, walked about 75 feet to the door, checked in, walked another 50 feet onto the train and sat down. No checked baggage, no lines, no hassle. Just easy. No waiting at the other end for baggage to be unloaded. No 3-mile hike from the gate to baggage claim. I think it takes less time overall, and Union Station is smack in the middle of downtown Chicago, so its easy to get anywhere from there!
As far as sticking to my plan; I didn't. Shame, shame. I didn't eat excessively, probably only ate twice a day, but the meal choices weren't very good, and I ate a donut, several bagels, and pasta. Needless to say, I'm up on the scale. I did, however, walk a gagillion miles while we were there, so I'm pretty sure I was burning some calories.
But I'm glad to be home, and ready to resume the plan.
Tonight, I'm back to my C25K running, and I had a healthy lunch: apple, plum, pineapple-orange juice, about 2 oz of cashews, and 1/2 slice of pumpkin bread.
Tonight, well....I'm hunting for a healthy recipe for pork tenderloin right now...I'll update later. Plus I want to catch up on what everyone else has been doing, so I'll be back later tonight....
