Yowsahs! Today has definitely been a whirlwind! I need to play a little catch up on CNC to get you guys up to speed.
After touring the POM orchards, the group drove to Visalia to check-in to a new hotel for the night.
Even though I’m a serious slob when it comes to staying in hotel rooms, it wasn’t any trouble to pack up my things and move to a new location for the night.
The other bloggers didn’t seem to mind either.
Especially when we realized that our new hotel was super nice!
Check out this plush king size bed that I get to sleep in tonight! I seriously cannot wait to climb in and pass out! I just wish my hubby and puggy were here with me too!
Is it strange that I love hotels so much?
After settling into my hotel room, I hit the gym for a speedy workout. I didn’t have much time, so I maximized my workout by doing intervals on the elliptical. I used MotionTraxx’s “30-Minute Cardio Machine Melter,” which I followed-up with 15 minutes of upper body free weights and some abs.
I returned to my room, blogged, showered, and put on a pot of coffee. I NEEDED the caffeine to keep me going!
Just before the group was scheduled to meet, I received a text message from Caitlin and Eric, who invited me to enjoy a cocktail with them in the hotel bar. Of course, I joined them for a glass of wine. Who am I to turn down a drink with friends?
Then, we headed upstairs to a conference room to hear Janel (my favorite RD!) give a fascinating presentation about anti-aging and antioxidants. I wish that I had taken notes because Janel had so many interesting things to say! Check out Caitlin’s blog for some of Janel’s top tips.
Everyone really seemed to enjoy Janel’s presentation. I know that I definitely learned a lot!
I would love to blog about the amazing dinner that I enjoyed tonight, but I am completely and utterly exhausted. It’s almost midnight here in California, which means it’s close to 3 AM for us East coasters. WHY am I still awake!?!
Tomorrow is our last day in California, and we’re going to the POM plant to see how the juice is produced and packaged. I’m heading back to Boston on a very late flight– and somehow I need to work at my full-time job bright and early on Thursday. Wow, I’m tired just thinking about it!
Good night, guys!!!
