HYC Check In

Greetings from Minneapolis!

I am a savvy business traveler lady again - and having a great time! No weigh in today, because while my hotel has several amenities, it does not have a scale.

I had the best exercise last night! There is a lake (we're in the land of 1,000 lakes, don'tcha know?) near the hotel, and the loop is 1.9 miles, so after a lovely meal of halibut, broccolini and a smidge of garlic mashed potatoes, I strapped on my shoes and iPod and hit the pavement. I was going to head to the fitness center, but it was still around 70 degrees out at 8:45, so I figured a walk was in order. Is Minnesota the lilac state? Because it should be! There are full, lush fragrant lilacs everywhere you go. Along the outer edge of the trail was a wall of lilacs that made my walk even better. The intermittent gnat clumps, were an annoyance, however.

My eating has been pretty good - I haven't even had one deep fried cheese curd. There are 6 hours until my flight home, so I make no promises. Today it is 85 degrees - Minnesota, I am going to miss your gorgeous springtime days.

Once home, I hope to return to operation gun show: the tricep days. I hope everyone else had a great week!

Ummmm, having grown up in Iowa, I happen to know that it's the land of TEN thousand lakes, not just a measly One thousand. LOL

Sounds like you are doing a great job of making healthy choices. Stay away from that fried stuff! ;-)

Your post brings back memories. I lived in MSP while on contract for 9 months and simply loved it. Fried cheese curd or not - it's a great place to visit.
