I’m back! I feel like I haven’t blogged in a long time, but it’s only been a few days. I guess it’s fair to say I have an addiction to my blog. There are worse addictions out there, so no complaining.
Jeremy and I headed to Florida for the weekend to soak up a little sun and relax.
The best thing about hotels…free breakfast!
It’s hard finding healthy options when most hotels only serve: bagels, waffles and donuts. But if you look beyond the pastries, you’ll find a couple healthier options. I opted for the hard boiled eggs for protein, apples and peanut butter for healthy fats and fiber and a yogurt for some calcium and protein.
After breakfast, we headed down to the beach! I was in serious need of some color.
The weather was perfect. I get bored laying out, so that lasted about fifteen minutes before I took Grumples for a walk along the beach.
Around three we headed back to the hotel to relax and re-fuel up. I downed three little cups of coffee, then watched the food network for a couple hours. Jeremy slept, otherwise I’d be stuck watching sports.
Later in the day, we headed out for more exploring. We watched a guy catch a snapper off the pier. It was the saddest thing but cute at the same time. The little old man kissed the fist, then threw it back.
We dropped Grumples back off at the hotel, then headed out for dinner. Our dinner was at a cute little grill on the beach. We made it just in time for the sunset.
By this point, we were starving! We snacked on chips and salsa before our meals came out. I ordered an ocean salad that came with: romaine, grilled shrimp, tomatoes, avocado, croutons, Parmesan cheese, coconut and pineapple. It was delicious and beautiful. I was bummed that my camera died before I could take a picture 🙁
We woke up super early on Sunday to spend the day at the beach before heading back to Atlanta.
For breakfast I had: three hard boiled eggs with syrup drizzled on top, yogurt with raisin brand, and a slice of whole grain toast with peanut butter. This picture was taken while my bread was in the toaster. (hence the missing bread)
This was Grumples first time on the beach. He LOVED it.
At the end of the day, he was one tired pup!
My parents brought me bags of fresh fruit from Iowa while they visited in Atlanta. I packed up all the fruit in bags and brought it to the beach with us to snack on.
We had such a fun little weekend getaway. Unfortunately it all happened so fast! I apologize for such a unorganized blog post, but the weekend was a relaxing blur.
We headed back in the afternoon and arrived back in Atlanta around nine. I crawled back in bed and fell asleep like a baby. We were so tired we left all our luggage and bags in the car.
I love vacations, but getting back on my regular routine is always nice. I started my day with a refreshing smoothie before picking up some groceries for the house 🙂 Smoothie: 1 cup ice, 1 cup sparkling water, 1 packet truvia, 5 baby carrots, 1 grapefruit, 1 cup spinach, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/2 cup pineapple 🙂
