I am super excited as I lost 2 pounds while traveling for business.  This never happens and I feel I have found the key to success for this;  stay at a terrible hotel in the suburbs!  Here is a quick and dirty update for Fit at Fifty Week Four.

fit-at-fifty-week-four

We were in Atlanta, and while we went a couple days ahead of the project to see friends and explore Atlanta Midtown, which we really liked, rest of our trip was with a client in the Buckhead area.  It was great for keeping me on track as if we had stayed in the Midtown area we would have been seeing things and not going to the gym during free time, as well we would have been enjoying a wealth of great restaurants that Atlanta has.  We ate really GREAT for two days and are still talking about it.  Since we were in purgatory as Lenny calls, during our project, I hit the gym every day and ate a lot of kale as the best option near us was True Food;  which by the way was really good, and we know as we ate almost everything on the menu in 5 days.
