Leigh returns from Florida..

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.
