Leaving on a Jet Plane
Well my bags are packed and I’m heading out! I have no idea what the internet/computer situation will be- never fear, I’ve got a couple posts prepared and waiting for you just in case I can’t stop in and say hi as much as I’d like!
The conference I’m going to is a sports nutrition and exercise workshop called Aging Healthfully. I’m pretty excited about it! The schedule of topics looks great, and I’m thrilled about the leaders of the workshop:
Nancy Clark, MS, RD (pretty much my sports nutrition hero) & Bill Evans, Ph.D (researcher and author). Judging the pre-readings I did, I should be learning lots of great stuff and I can’t wait to share some of it with you!
I’ve got about four hours of flying and an hour layover, plus I’m flying Delta which always seems to be delayed, so I’ve got lots of reading material with me!
I’m super excited about what came in the mail yesterday:
Not one, but two issues of Runner’s World! (A Christmas present!) I also saved the lastest Women’s Health and Cooking Light to bring with me. (I do not like being bored on a plane/airport.)
I also packed some snacks since I don’t know if I’ll have time to grab anything on my layover or not. I already packed my camera up, but I have a pb&j sammy, Wheat Thins and some cut up Gouda, a Fiber One bar, a snack pack of almonds, and some of the muffins I made last night.
I quickly finished up Julie and Julia so I could bring a whole new book with me. I enjoyed Julie and Julia, but I felt like she tried to cram an awful lot in there. I’m looking forward to checking out the movie one of these days, because I think I might actually like it better than the book for once. I did really like reading about the different types of foods that we don’t really use too much in the US (or these days at all) and Julie’s hunts to find the ingredients.
Now on to Eat, Pray, Love!
I’ve made the big girl decision not to run today. I’m optimistic though and still bringing my running gear with me!
…and I’m off!! Not sure when I’ll “see” you again, so hope you have a wonderful weekend!
