We lucked out with gorgeous weather these past few days. Blue skies and mild temps. I remember sweltering on the beach other summers, so these 80-something degree days is a blessing. Especially since I’m not thrilled about swimming with the sharks this year!
Breakfast yesterday – scrambled eggs and swirl toast.
For our workout we geared up for the beach and then did this bootcamp among sand castles and buckets of water. The workout was four sets of 3 exercises and we did each one for 1 minute. The top lines were all using our heavy sandbag “kettlebells” and we rounded the set with a body weight strength exercise and a cardio one. We did the whole thing twice through with some suicides for a warmup. It was a great little workout!
We came in for lunch after a while, and I made a salad with greens, cheese, peach and leftover salmon. Plus chips – nothing says beach week like kettle chips!
White Plum sent me their Stripe A Pose Day Dress and Iman Layered Necklace to bring with me on this trip as part of our partnership for the year.This dress is super comfortable – the fabric is thick and stretchy, almost like seersucker. And I love the complementing necklaces! And for you guys – 25% off your entire purchase good through August 6: KATH25OFF!!
Mazen went out with mom and dad to the boardwalk for pizza and ice cream while we older kids went out on our own.
Larbs, Matt and I went to a bar for beers and clams for our first stop –
And then we sat on the porch at Havana’s for dinner. We enjoyed this amazing Sonoma Chardonnay from Simi –
And then we shared mussels, fried oysters and a lobster and seafood bake before heading out for some delicious ice cream!
We walked home about a mile on the beach. Love the ambiance that time of day!
Back at home we played a game out Outburst. It was a bit outdated, and Matt commented that it would be fun to play a 2015 version with updated topics. Then we noticed the top of the box claimed it already was updated once before!
Time for sunscreen!
