on the road, yet again.

I rarely have to travel for my job, but today was the third day in less than a month I needed to!  Fortunately, it’s only about 150 miles roundtrip, so nothing too far!  Plus, a day out of the office and mileage reimbursement are two very nice perks!

Before heading out of the house, I had an everything Bagel Thin with sunflower seed butter, white chocolate chips, and a new topping of some strawberries!  It made the whole thing even more delicious than normal!

The meeting itself that I had to attend was pretty uneventful.  I can’t lie, the highlight was definitely lunch!  The original plan was the people hosting the meeting were going to order lunch in and we’d eat in the conference room.  But the change of plans brought us to a nearby restaurant where they treated us!  Once I saw an Indian option on the menu, I was sold!  The palak paneer was delicious (although I found the cherry tomatoes a completely random addition to the plate…).

I kept myself entertained during the entire trip – both the drive there and back singing along as loudly as I can listening to music from Glee.  Surprising, I know.

I had just enough time once I got back into Grand Rapids to feed the dogs dinner, let them out for a bit, change into workout gear, and hightail it downtown in time for Zumba!  I definitely didn’t think I was going to make it this week, so that was a definite bonus!  Class was pretty good tonight.  The last time I went, I almost passed out halfway through so I was really glad that didn’t happen again!

Dinner was a yogurt mess with pomegranate Chobani, rolled oats, chia seeds, and pecans.  All I wanted was something cold and refreshing, but my normal smoothie wasn’t an option with house sitting.  This was an awesome option, too!

Also!  Registration for the 2011 Healthy Living Summit opened tonight and I was glued to my computer for a hot minute, but I’m in!  I am SO excited to attend again – I had such a great time in Chicago last year!  You can read my posts from the 2010 Summit, if you’re curious!

I will be singing the theme song to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air repeatedly.  In Philadelphia, born and raised… Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Are you going to be at the Healthy Living Summit? If you are and need a room, let me know – Theresa, Sarah, and I have room for one more!
