Last night was so much fun, but I didnâ€™t get into bed until 3 AM and had to wake up at 7:30 AM to make my flight â€“ oof!
However, it was totally worth it to stay out late with the girls! I am really going to miss Lauren when she moves to Asiaâ€¦ hopefully, weâ€™ll still G-Chat and Skype all the time, despite the time difference.
I woke up feeling ratherâ€¦ groggy this morning. After showering, I piled my luggage into a cab and headed for the airport. It was a rainy and foggy morning in Philadelphia.
I had planned ahead and packed a banana and Clif bar in my purse to eat during the ride.
But truthfully â€“ it wasnâ€™t enough. I had woken up starving and by the time I checked in, went through security, and found my gate, I decided I needed more food. I really feel like itâ€™s so important to listen to your hunger cues and eat â€“ even when itâ€™s not â€œtime.â€
Breakfast #2 was an Everything Bagel with egg.
On the flight, I read this EXCELLENT book. Itâ€™s loosely based on Laura Bush and is absolutely so intriguing. Curtis Sittenfeld is the best writer â€“ the language is so vivid and descriptive.
After a layover in Cleveland (donâ€™t ask why Iâ€™d fly from Philly to Ohio to Charlotte), the Husband picked me up from the airport and I practically BEGGED to go to Big Daddyâ€™s for lunch. My hunger wonâ€™t stop today (I donâ€™t think I ate enough on Saturday while shopping and whatnot).
A black bean burger with extra pickles on a whole wheat roll.
And a side salad with Napa cabbage, corn, feta, pecans, and balsamic.
TOTALLY HIT THE SPOT.
By the way, the Hus just found my glasses, which I have been unable to locate for a week and thought I had lost at the Healthy Living Summit in Chicagoâ€¦ they were in the fridge in the vegetable drawer. (Donâ€™t ask.)
