On the road again.

It's hard enough to do Weight Watchers and be successful when you're at home.  It gets ever more challenging when you travel for work.  It's been really busy at work this month, and I have travelled every week (this is why this is my first blog post in May!)

This week I am in Chicago.  I got off to a great start yesterday, went to the gym, walked to get a great salad to bring back to room for lunch, then enjoyed low carb appetizers at the business reception I attended.

This morning was awesome!  I went for a run along the Chicago waterfront, with my half marathon partner, Angie.  This run has been on my to do list for quite some time, and the weather was perfect- cool and breezy.  We started at the Drake Hotel, went up to the Oak Street Beach, then back to Navy Pier.  Angie snapped this along the way...

On my way back to the hotel I found a Trader Joe's and bought the ingredients to make my favorite breakfast- Trader Joe's Nonfat Vanilla Greek Yogurt and the Very Cherry Frozen Berry Blend.  I came back to the hotel, let the berries defrost while I went up to the gym for a little more strength training.  I came back to my room, and assembled my yogurt and berries- only I fished out just the cherries (my favorite!) and layered them with the vanilla yogurt.  Each bite makes me go mmmm!

Later I'm meeting my friend Angie for lunch, and plan to order my favorite salad- Tuna Nicoise.

Make it a great day!
