A Sunday Return to the Real World

Posted Jan 20 2013 8:48pm

I can’t believe the trip is already over. It was such a great business trip with 48 hours of personal added on the side!

We landed last night around 7pm and by 9pm when I walked through the door after an hour long customs line, I fell asleep mid sentence as Bo and I caught up.

Based on the picture that Erika captured of me on the plane, I was more than a bit exhausted.


I slept for 11 hours before waking up around 9:15 for a Barry’s Bootcamp and brunch date! Before I left for Geneva we organized a date with our friends Mike and Liz. Bo and I aren’t the biggest brunch fans but after hearing about Bubby’s epic brunches for the past few months from both Sara and Liz, we finally gave in. The full body class at Barry’s Tribecca was a great way to kick it back into full gear after a week of more relaxed workouts, including long walks, dance parties, and a few short runs.


My triceps are still quivering from the class and my legs finally pushed through the 10.0 mph setting for 45 seconds during today’s class! I think it’s safe to say that both Bo and I have sipped the Barry’s Bootcamp Kool-Aid and are loving it!

Bubby’s was the perfect brunch spot since it is located just around the block from Barry’s Bootcamp and has a menu offering almost anything you could want.

While I was tempted to go with the homemade granola and fresh fruit, my body was craving protein. The Bubby’s Brunch was perfect as I was able to have eggs anyway, chicken sausage, fresh fruit, and cheese grits.



The cheese grits were not my cup of tea but everything else was phenomenal! Check out the fruit cup as well. I’ve never loved a winter fruit cup more than this one, filled to the brim with pears, pomegranates, clementine, and berries!

The rest of the day was spent getting a much needed manicure with Meg and lounging around the house. Around 5pm the jet-lag hit me like a ton of bricks, leaving me exhausted and absolutely worn out. Luckily the 3 of us shared dinner duties, whipping up a healthy, flavorful dish including fish, the main course I requested as I’ve had enough chicken and cheese to hold me over for at least a month!

Pan roasted snapper over lemon and garlic Brussels sprouts topped with a homemade tomato sauce.

I wish that tomorrow didn’t include a half day of work but at least a relaxing Sunday has helped transition back into regular life which includes laundry, workouts, healthy food, vegetables, and sleep.

These next few weeks are going to be filled with lots of travel including another trip to Geneva the first week of February followed by a beach weekend to celebrate a certain second 29th birthday . I’m just thankful that I have this week in one city to focus on work and my half marathon training!
