My fears were unfounded regarding my NYC trip.
One enterprising soul programmed her cell phone to track our distance and we walked about 12 miles on two different days. The third day was a mere six.
NYC restaurants nearly all post at least the calorie count on their menu offerings so I was able to at least make some healthy choices. Other times I threw caution to the wind a bit.
The bus trip was brutal -- 22 hours each way on a bus so crowded that the kids were sleeping on the floor (try and use a bathroom when you have to climb over kids in the dark!) so I did end up restricting my water intake for parts of that but all in all I think I did okay. I didn't sleep a wink on either of the long bus trips. Eventually I just needed food to fuel my exhausted body.
Tomorrow I can get back on the horse but for tonight, I am putting my feet up, unpacking our heavy suitcases and trying to get a handle on the laundry two of us can use up in five days.
