Last night, we both sat and thought about what we would eat for a long time. We haven’t splurged since we started this journey and haven’t really wanted to, just because we enjoy what we eat and we do feel so good. We started tossing ideas for dinner around… avocado sandwich on hemp bread, black beans and avocado with tomato, big salad, Chinese food, pizza hut pizza, French fries, sub sandwich. I am sure you are noticing the turn for the worse.
We both thought, “hell why not, we have been so good”, so that was that, we were going to splurge, we were going to go buy something from a fast food place, and we were excited about it! Plus getting a phone call from someone (I wont name names), that happened to be on their way to McDonalds, didn’t help!!
Our biggest concern was getting food, and being back in time to watch The Biggest Loser, that was very important, because Leigh and I love that show!!
So shoes and jackets on, keys in hand, headed for the door, we both looked at each other and said, “what are we doing?” We actually talked ourselves out of it. We stayed home and had black beans and tomatoes. It tasted great and was very fresh, and we saved ourselves from the temptation of fast food!!
So we are still on track and feeling great! We did hear that 2 family members are going to be joining us on this journey! Leigh and I are very excited about that, and we cant wait for all of us to support each other.

Saturday afternoon, we went to a wedding here in Georgetown. It was a lovely ceremony and it was great to see Sara and Darron tie the knot! It was also great to see Josh play the mandolin during the ceremony! He did a wonderful job. One of the best things about the day, was getting to see many friends, we don’t get to see very often! It seemed that everyone was there and it was great to get to hang out with them and catch up on their lives.
Sunday, Josh and I met Leigh at Wild Oats. I just love that place. We loaded up on lots of green lettuce for smoothies and salads, and we are set for the week. Our cart looked like we had stolen a garden, but that is such a refreshing feeling, to see all of that healthy food and know that we are putting that in our bodies.
Another great point to this weekend was getting to see my brother, my wonderful sister in law, and our adorable nephew Thomas Wyatt. We just all happened to be at Joseph Beth at the same time, and decided to enjoy a cup of coffee with them. I always enjoy being with Robbie and Sarah, they are so fun, and upbeat, and just bring a certain joy to any conversation. At a time when everyone is running crazy for the holidays, it is so nice to sit down with family and be quickly reminded what is important in life. It isn’t gifts, and spending money on your friends and family, it is the warmth that you experience when you are surrounded with people you love.

Greetings! I made it back from Florida Tuesday night. My wonderful sister picked me up at the airport. I was there for the American Association of Equine Practitioners. It was a very successful trip but very tiring at the same time. This was my first traveling venture since the new “lifestyle.” I knew when I left that it was going to be difficult. Part of my job is wining and dining my clients and that means lots of food at awesome restaurants. Looking back on it now, I did really, really well. I decided that every breakfast would be fresh fruit and that every lunch would be a fresh spring salad. I stayed at the Gaylord Palm and they do have excellent food. I had client meetings for every meal and I always left it up to the client as to where they wanted to eat.
Every morning I had breakfast at the Villa De Flora and every lunch I had at the Key West boat. I have never been so excited to leave a place in my life. I was so sick of both of those restaurants!! On Tuesday I told my coworker that if my lunch date for that day wanted to go back to that damn boat I would just skip lunch. Don’t get me wrong, the hotel is great but after a point you just get really sick of it. Although at dinner we had some wonderful meals. On Sunday night we ate at Christini’s. It is an amazing restaurant. The atmosphere and the food were outstanding. All the waiters were in tuxedos, they escorted you to the bathroom and gave you a long stem red rose when you left. It was a pretty cool place. I got the sea bass over risotto. It was incredible. Monday night we had dinner at the famous Emrils. It lived up to every expectation I had. It was amazing.
So over all I think I did pretty good. I didn’t seem to get as tired as I normally do when I am out traveling and I ate a LOT better than I have in the past when I am on a business trip. I did mess up on one thing. I forgot to take my probiotics while I was gone. So yesterday I started back with those and they made me pretty sick. I had a lot of cramping in my stomach. Oh well, that is good, it is doing its job. Now that I am back in KY I will start working out again. Tonight I will be back on the treadmill.
