My suitcase is (almost) packed for New York City! Now I just have to jam everything in the actual suitcase.
Truthfully, it wasnâ€™t that hard to pack because Iâ€™m only going to be up there for 48 hours. Iâ€™ve got enough options!
For once, Iâ€™m not bringing workout clothes on vacation. I really enjoy maintaining some sense of a normal schedule on longer, for-pleasure trips. But there is going to be NO TIME for gym time in NYC!
Oh, and in other big news â€“ my Today Show spot has been bumped from Thursday at 10:00 AM to 8:30 AM, which is HUGE (viewership is much higher at 8:30 AM). This actually didnâ€™t make me more nervous, just super excited! Set your DVRs!
Despite all the action, I managed to squeeze in a quick workout. The Husband dragged me away from the computer and ran 3.0 miles with me in 30:34. The last mile was definitely faster than the first two, which is always nice! :) And running with the Hus was fun â€“ weâ€™re doing it a lot more since we moved.
Mid-afternoon snack was my â€œentryâ€ (I canâ€™t really enter since Iâ€™m an organizer) for the Healthy Living Summit Stonyfield Smoothie Contest! <— If youâ€™re coming to the HLS, you should enter, too!
My smoothie contained:
- Oikos Greek yogurt
- 2 drops of Stevia
- 15 frozen organic cherries
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
And for dinnerâ€¦ another lovely Husband creation.
A mix of spinach, tortellini, fake meatballs (which I tried, hated, and passed to the Husband), tomatoes, apples, grapes, mushrooms, and onions. The Husband sure loves those stir-fries!
Last minute details to wrap up!!
Thanks for making my book release day so very wonderful. 🙂 <3
