HaPpY BirThdaY, Tess!!

August 21, 2014


I’m leaving on a flight to Dallas this afternoon to go visit one of the coolest kid’s in the whole world, my daughter Tess, for her birthday. If you’re new to the blog, Tess works for Southwest Airlines, and mom and dad fly for FREE!! I don’t know how I would have handled her moving so far away if we didn’t have the chance to see each other as ofter as we do with the free flights! It really is a HUGE benefit!

I worked hard all week to get in a lot of whole foods, drink a lot of water, and exercise. I’ve been in the zone, and I’m mentally prepared to go out of town for the weekend. I’ve packed my walking clothes, and I’ll only be gone two nights this visit.

I missed my long walk yesterday, but I did get Tucker outside for a sniff and stroll yesterday morning. This morning, I woke up at 6:00 am (which I never do) and headed out the door first thing for a 3 mile walk. I’ve already had lots of water, and I’ve had my breakfast.


Today’s Breakfast

Frothy Coffee

Trader Joe’s Bread, Toasted

4 Egg Whites, 1/4 Smashed Avocado




I’ll take a couple of apples to the airport just in case my flight doesn’t go as planned. When you fly free, you also are flying stand-by, and sometimes, things just don’t go as planned.

Here are yesterday’s eats!

Have a great weekend! I’ll be back to the blog on Sunday!
