Greetings from Maryland!

Thank you all so much for the vacation good wishes. So far it’s a blast!

The drive up was gorgeous, but I kind of expected that. The Cumberland Mtns, the Smokeys, the lower Appalachians, and the Virginia Highlands all in one day are a lot to behold. But oh my Lord, what a long drive. I’ve never been sure whether or not to truly believe that driving burns 200 calories an hour, but I sure felt like it yesterday!

Eating yesterday was so-so. I had too many calories, I think (too tired to add them up) but they were all healthy one. Except for that mini-York Peppermint Pattie.

As we expected, the friends I met for dinner last night didn’t recognize me. :)

I awoke early this morning, well ahead of my 9:00 departure time for Dulles to pick up a friend, to exercise in the fitness room. For the second time this year, I found myself staring at a weight rack that jumped from 8-lb weights to 20-lb. weights.

Note to hotels: Fit girls like me use 10, 12, and 15 lb weights. Please get some and put them in the rack. NOW.

I think I’ll just do cardio, pushups, and squats and call it even. :)

Okay, I’m off to find some breakfast and then back onto the Capitol Beltway. I’ll be shuttling between Dulles and BWI today, so I’ll be checking in on your blogs via my iPhone. Hope you’re all having an outstanding week!
