Wheeee! Hope you all had a nice Saturday.
After lunch the clouds covered over and the fog returned. I walked about 26 minutes to the beach access where Larbs + Matt were to discover they were freezing cold, so we hopped on the golf cart to return to the Inn and read indoors curled up on the sofas
After an hour of reading, Matt, the husband Matt and I decided it was now or never for our run. I was totally not in the mood, but I also wasn’t about to pass up on a Bald Head run with the boys. 10 minutes later I was sprinting along the beach road and the sun came back out! We ran about 4 miles – a swift 4 miles guy-style. Once back I decided to do 20 minutes of yoga for some stretching. Perfecto!
Then I took my time showering and getting dressed. I feel so often I’m in a rush to shower and do myself up so I decided since I had the time I’d take it.
I joined the group by the water for cocktail hour a bit later before we all headed out to dinner to one of Bald Head’s few restaurants: Eb + Flow’s Steam Bar.
We played some more group games over cocktails – Outburst + Mafia. And we munch on a selection of snacks. Have I mentioned before how much my family likes cocktail hour 😎
Homemade guacamole + chips. I had about 5 of those…
And more of those damned candied mixed nuts that are SO GOOD!! I had 2-3 small handfuls total.
And cheese and cheese biscuits (I had 2 cheese + crackers)
I wasn’t craving a drink, so I made a mocktail of diet tonic and lime/cherry to sip
Because I wanted to 100% enjoy a beer at dinner –
Some kind of wheat beer –
Me + Larbs
Dinner was a Fried Food Feast!!! I think everyone ordered something fried – and it was the best calabash seafood I’ve had in years.
I ordered a House Salad – with Fried Oysters!!
The salad part was meh, but the oysters were amazing! I ate all but 1 and just a tiny bit of the dressing…
We all left the restaurant STUFFED. We walked there and back and I think everyone was complaining about their pants being tight 😳
But we weren’t too stuffed for ice cream sundaes!!
We watched the movie Get Smart, which I thought was really good when they weren’t in an action scene (I <3 Steve Carell and thought it was Anne Hathaway’s best movie). My sundae had vaniller ice cream, pineapple + strawberry topping, whipped cream, a crumbled chocolate thing and 2 cherries. I haven’t had a sundae in AGES and the beach seemed like the perfect occasion to have one.
I was on the border of my Christmas goal of feeling great today, but I think I was able to stay on the good side. But I will say as much as I’m enjoying letting loose a bit, I’m already really excited about getting back into my healthy eating routine next week. It just takes a few days over overindulgence to crave that fresh feeling of healthy meals.
I am looking forward to sleepin’ in tomorrow, some more running and hopefully some sunshine.
