We had a blast on the train. Well on the way to LA we pretty much slept through it. Woke up about 5:45 then went to breakfast at 6 after watching out the window for a few. Then at breakfast we were able to continue to watch our journey to LA. I did really good with my food while we were gone, and even got hubby to go to 2 vegetarian resterants while we were there.
The first day we went and checked into the hotel. Our train was supposed to get in at 9:30 am and was early so we hopped in the rental car and decided to find the hotel and see how early we could check in (we had requested early check-in) We were in our room a few min. before 10am , I was impressed. After that we went and found the veggie place I think it was called Pure Luck, after that we went down to the farmers market walked around there for a couple hours, got some peaches, and went to our favorite place... Coffee Bean :o) We don't have those in Tucson. After that we went to Whole Foods across the street, man am I jealous of the size of that store, it was amazing!!!! Then we went to find The Viggie Grill for dinner, yum yum!!! After that we picked up my mom and her boyfriend at LAX.
Sat. morning we didn't all get hot water for our showers :o( but they gave us the breakfast buffet to make up for it. Boy was that nice. I was able to get an egg white omlette with veggies, and I got some fruit, and a light and fit yogurt. Then we were off to out drive to Hearst Castle. We had fun there and got back to our hotel about midnight.
Sunday we decided to go find a crepe place for breakfast, after not being able to find two places we were excited to find the third then when we saw they were closed we went next door to Jinky's. After we got seated we realized that it was aparently a place that the stars frequented. We recognized one person, but I'm really not one for recognizing people. I was able to get a healthy breakfast tofu scramble then we were off to go walk around the farmers market again (where I got my Moose) before we went home. We had fun and were able to go back by Coffee Bean Befor we went home :o)
On the train ride home we played a couple games, read, and went to dinner. They even gave me something off the menu, because there veggie dish was cheese pasta. I got a baked potato, salad, with a bunch of steamed veggies :o) Before we knew it we were back to Tucson, what a great way to travel.
Now we are back home to work :( but our garden did well with the drip system we installed :o) I really hope we get some stuff to eat from it :o)
Gym update. I went Tuesday and did about 45 min of cardio and yesterday I did about 30 min of cardio whoo hooooo!!!!!! I also plan to go today. Last night we ended up going to Pei Wei, didn't make the best choice but I did only have half of it and saved the other half for lunch today I got the Pad Thai Tofu bowl :o)
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and week so far. Cheers to the Summer!!! I better get back to work, here are some pics from the trip
