KC Quick Trip

Lots of miles on the car, but only a little over 3 on the treadmill.  I left yesterday morning, drove to Leawood (KS) - snacked on some apple slices on the way.  Spent a few hours with my aunt going through a few of my grandfather's things and looking at a ton of old pictures that I brought that I got when my dad passed away - had a bowl and a half of an awesome chicken chili with lots of tomatoes and spice (enough for produce point, I think plus had a few carrot sticks to round it out).  Left just before 4, stopped by Target to look for some jeans as I have none that fit anymore.  I was able to score a pair of size 14's!!  Super comfy!  Then took a wrong turn and took the greater tour of Overland Park before getting back over to Brookside where I was to meet friends from Missouri Water Environment Association for a happy hour.  They had a ton of greasy looking appetizers, but I skipped them since I was still pretty full from lunch.  I had one margarita so not too bad.  Up to Independence to check into the Holiday Inn.  Did some work and chilled out (literally - room was freezing).

This morning I got up early enough to knock out my 3 miles on the treadmill before going to meet my client up in Liberty.  Got a lot done at the office then walked around and did inspections of two maintenance yards before stopping off for lunch - chinese buffet.  First, I was freezing so half a cup of egg drop soup to warm the insides up.  Managed to only get one plate of food which was heavily loaded with broccoli (not so much of the beef in that dish).  Headed for home, stopping in Columbia to pick up some surveys that my friend Ron needed dropped off in Jeff City.  Got home around 4.  My daughter had a friend spend the night and we all kind of hung out.  Husband grilled burgers for dinner and I passed on all but a few fries that he cooked with it.  Overall, not entirely awful eating and got some exercise so for a quick business trip, I didn't get too tripped up on the diet front.  Will have to add up all the HBBC points for the week tomorrow.
