I am finally back home after my trip to Chicago for the Modern Language Association conference. All in all I was successful with my eating and exercising on this trip. The Marriott has a great workout facility and I was able to do the workouts that Sam had on my plan without any problem (other than I turned the treadmill on in German).
I ate at several good places. Many of the salads I ate contained pears, something I don’t think about putting in salad but really liked the taste and texture. I also had a wonderful beet salad with goat cheese and pears.
I even managed to find decent food at the airport – not always easy. I wound up with Greek yogurt and fruit for lunch.
I had to do some work to eat well while I was gone, but I was able to manage for four days. I am happy not only with eating well but also with finding some new flavor combinations to try in my own kitchen.
