Breakfast was simple and quick.  I was rushing around the house like a madwoman trying to repack my suitcase.  I packed as if it would be COLD in Fresno, but I think it’s going to be warm.  I had PB bagel and a banana:


Guess who I ran into this morning at the Orlando airport?  Jason (Megan’s boyfriend)!  He’s an engineer, too and supervises construction at the airport.  🙂


We chatted for a bit, and then I excused myself to purchase a Pumpkin Spice Latte.  Mmm.  ‘Tis the season!


The first leg of my flight was to Dallas.  When I arrived for my layover, I was excited to see an Au Bon Pan at the gate.  I always get a Red Pepper Hummus sandwich when I travel.


Unfortunately, I don’t think the chef preparing my sandwich understood the hummus was my “meat.” He spread it on as thin as mustard!  So, I basically had onions and bread for lunch.  🙂


I had a banana during my flight to Fresno.


When I got off my flight, I found my Tina! Yayyyyyyyyy!  Of course, she was actively blogging when I spotted her.  :) 


At the hotel, we discovered a few of the other bloggers that are attending the POM Wonderful Tour:



Sorry to make this short and sweet, but I’m going to meet Tina in the hotel gym for a workout.  We scoped out the area, and we’re in a pretty commercial district.  No good running trails are nearby!  :(  But the gym looks decent.


Be back later with the blogger welcome dinner.  Three cheers for California!

    By the way, I started the no fat talk about a week or so ago and am already feeling SO GOOD about myself. I blogged about it today.

    I want to say a really big thank you for leading me, and so many others, down the path to self acceptance and love. You are such an inspiration Caitlin, and I know that’s a cliche but it’s true.

    Thank you thank you thank you…

    A 🙂

  • Molly @vegandorm October 19, 2009, 7:29 pm

    my favorite way to explore a new city is just running through the streets, but it can be difficult in an area with lots of traffic lights.
    have fun!!!

  • Lauren October 19, 2009, 8:09 pm

    Have a great time!!

  • Carrie @ I See Monsters October 20, 2009, 11:00 am

    Thin hummus on vegetarian sandwiches is a HUGE pet peeve of mine! They always do that at Panera. Hummus is the protein, sandwich designers! Not the flavoring. 😉

  • tra October 22, 2009, 10:46 pm

    wow. i ottlaly didn’t know you were still posting- my google reader sucks! yay for cali. =D

Healthy Tipping Point
