    Lifted: yesterday
    Wed - Sat: Didn't swimor lift was in NYC, hoped to swim on Wed but at midnight we found out our flight was cancelled and changed our flight to NYC from 9:55 am to 5:45 am and wasn't able to make practice. We needed to arrive before the North Easter hit, we made it and saw snow, walked a lot, ate too much and gained weight. We saw the opening show of the Rockettes at Radio City and "the Performers" on Friday night, very funny, raunchy
