I love when family comes to visit. This past weekend, my sister Laura and her boyfriend Chuck were here, and it was a jam-packed few days. On Sunday, we hosted a brunch, and invited some cousins and friends (check out what I made here). But that was just the tip of the iceberg!
Laura and Chuck rented a convertible, and I loved tooling around town with the top down.
What a sucker I’ve been, driving all these years in a car with a roof!

I spent two days in Dallas this weekend, and it was jam-packed. One highlight would have to be the Heroes Memorial Climb, but I already told you all about that. The other highlight was an incredible meal at Fearing’s, one of the most renowned restaurants in the country.

This post is a continuation of yesterday’s post, which is appropriate titled “New York, New York (Part 1)”. In it, I shared tons of pictures and discussed how I kept active during my 4-day trip to New York City last week. Click here if you missed it.
Since I’ve already discussed exercise, this post is gonna be about the other major part of health and weight loss: food. There have been times, when I’ve been traveling, where I’ve started to worry about when and what I’m going to eat, because as anyone who’s tried to lose weight knows, this shit is HARD. And it’s even harder when you have less control over your food, like you do when you’re traveling.
I’m happy because I don’t think I ever worried on this New York trip, which is thanks, I think, to the successful creation of new habits and a major shift in thinking when it comes to restaurant menus: I used to dread looking at menus, because I’d see all sorts of delicious items that I would love to eat but probably shouldn’t, and now, I consider finding healthy options on menus a fun challenge. What used to be a chore is now a game, and it’s a game I rarely lose.
