I'm Back but Not for Long

I am back home, but not for long.

Business trips are over, for a little while. The next trip I've got is coming up on Friday and this will be a nice trip because it's our Hocking Hills vacation. Hocking Hills is in Ohio. We have rented a cabin and can't wait to explore the area! I anticipate there to be a lot of hiking, a lot of relaxing and a lot of fun. My husband and I will be going on this trip with another couple. We always have a good time with our friends, so we are really looking forward to this trip!

This morning, I woke up in Pittsburgh. I had a training from 9:00 - 5:00, then drove home. I ate out for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I did a good job about staying within my calorie range today, and even got to fit in a nice treat!

Lunch at Panera

Breakfast - Egg white delight from McDonalds
Lunch - Panera You Pick Two - Broccoli Cheddar Soup/Smoked Turkey on Sourdough
Dinner - Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad from McDonalds
Snack - Roman Cannoli

I have only been in Pittsburgh for training one other time. Last time I went to Pittsburgh, I found this amazing Italian Bakery near the training center. I was pleasantly surprised to find that we were training near the same Bakery, so I made sure to visit it over my lunch.

I bought four Roman Cannoli's. Those Cannoli's are huge! We definitely didn't need that many, but when I was in the Bakery, I wanted 10 of everything, so I guess I didn't do so bad considering.

I had one entire Cannoli after dinner tonight. That Cannoli is probably the best treat I have had in a while. Sometimes, you just have to treat yourself. The fact that my husband and I are celebrating 4 years of marriage tomorrow seemed to have an influence on my Cannoli purchase. I figured we could each have one tonight, and maybe each have one tomorrow, as well. I can't believe it's been 4 years since my husband and I got married. More on that, tomorrow!

Just a quick overview of my goals, and then I'm signing off for the night:
