I can’t believe today was our last day on the POM Harvest Tour. It’s been such an amazing experience! I’m really not ready to go back to the “real world.” 😕
Again, I woke up before the sun this morning (darn East coast time), so I hit the gym for a quickie workout. I did 25 minutes on the elliptical, followed by 15 minutes on the treadmill. My hip has been sore from all of the running that I’ve been doing lately, so I alternated 3 minutes of running with 2 minutes of walking. I’m glad that I managed to fit in some sort of workout today!
After showering and some blogging, I met the group downstairs in the hotel restaurant for breakfast. I was happy to see that there was a healthy selection of foods once again. 😀
The fresh fruit bar was awesome! It was just what I wanted after such an indulgence meal last night.
I considered oatmeal for breakfast again, but decided on whole wheat toast with peanut butter instead.
It was a good decision, especially since I had a serious craving for peanut butter.
And, of course, I drank a couple of cups of coffee with breakfast. The caffeine was much-needed!
After breakfast, the group hopped into the rental vans and drove to the POM facility to learn about juicing and bottling the wonderful pomegranates. (Post coming soon about the tour!)
Our tour at the POM facilities ended just before lunchtime, so we dug into our packed lunches a little early.
For my lunch, I ate half of a turkey wrap, drank some POM juice (the first of the whole trip!), and finished with dessert: a wonderful white chocolate cookie.
The POM team was actually in a bit of a rush to get us to the airport to catch our flights, so we said some quick goodbyes and drove straight there.
There was a little confusion with my fight, so it got re-routed through Dallas instead of Las Vegas, but I’ll get home to Boston at the same time. Thank goodness!
At the airport, I gathered a bunch of essentials for my travels home.
On my layover in Dallas, I grabbed Starbuck’s Perfect Oatmeal as another snack/dinner, but I didn’t snap a photo. I actually boarded the plane while eating it!
I still have a couple more POM posts to write, so be sure to stay tuned!
And, I have lots to catch-up on! It’s crazy what 3 days away can do!
