Had a busy day today at work. Then came back to the hotel. It is amazing being back in a city. I forgot how much exercise you get from walking blocks to and from the subway, going up lots of stairs -- hard work when you are carrying your computer and papers in a shoulder bag. I changed into my workout clothes, and walked to the gym "eXtreme fitness" - after checking in, I headed for a treadmill and walked and ran for 3.5 miles. I returned to my hotel, and ordered a mixed green salad with grilled chicken breast....it was good. I watched "The Biggest Loser" for inspiration - it is always a good reminder to stick with it each day.
Mom & Dad have electricity back on!! and they are so happy.
