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.
