Well, I got to see a Broadway play!
Naturally, I had to visit Chinatown!

My hotel was right next to Times Square, so I spent a lot of time there:
And of course... I ate. Lots. Of. Food. It was all delicious. I was able to visit The Russian Tea Room, which is a place I've dreamed of going to for many years now. I ate French macarons from Laduree and various mysterious dumplings in Chinatown. There were breads and delicate pastries from Takahachi bakery and sticks of meat from street vendors. For a girl who has been dieting and exercising steadily for 22+ weeks, it was absolute Heaven. I took pictures of all the food I ate, but since this is a weight-loss blog, I think it would be kinda cruel to post them.
For my sanity, I haven't weighed myself yet. I'm sure I've gained weight, though I did walk almost constantly, so hopefully that helped a bit. Life was very busy as soon as I stepped off the plane, with work-related trips, Church dinners, and frantic grocery shopping, so I'm still very sleep deprived. I have to work at my third job this weekend, too, so I'm not sure when I'll have a chance to finally catch up on my sleep.
Even with gained weight and severe lack of sleep, it was totally worth it. I had a blast and can't wait to go again!
