Today I’m spending a random Monday in Jacksonville because I will be leaving for San Francisco tomorrow and figured it made more sense to stay at my parents’ place since they live right by the airport. Staying here saves me a four-hour roundtrip to and from Ocala and I get to spend quality time with family. I’d say that makes staying in Jax a no brainer.
Plus, Ryan and Sadie are here! They came into town on Friday night because Ryan joined my dad on a scuba diving trip on Saturday, so the gang is all here!
I slept in until after 7 a.m. which felt amazing. I grabbed a quick breakfast of cottage cheese, steel cut oats, crumbled graham crackers, almonds and fresh blueberries.
It was a random combination but it kept me satisfied through my workout!
After breakfast, Ryan and I drove to the gym and I headed into my beloved BodyPump class while Ryan did his own thing in the weight room.
I took it lighter on the weights today since I am still a little sore from the hilly races I ran on Saturday.
Once BodyPump was over, Ryan and I hit up Sippers Coffeehouse where I ordered a latte to fuel me through a little bit of shopping at Nordstrom Rack.
A shopping cart with a cup holder!?
I needed a few cooler weather things for my San Francisco trip since I didn’t pack any jackets or warmer things when I left Ocala last Wednesday. (Fail.)
After our quick shopping trip, Ryan was hungry. I wasn’t ready for lunch just yet, but Ryan wanted a burger, so we made a pit stop at MShack so he could grab something before we headed back to my parents’ place. Ryan ordered a burger for lunch and I ordered a side of sweet potato tater tots to snack on since I wasn’t hungry enough for a full meal.
Oh my gosh, they were ridiculously delicious. I’m not too crazy about regular tater tots, but sweet potato tater tots are a different story. YES.
Thirty minutes or so after we made it back to my parents’ place, my appetite kicked in and I fixed myself a chicken and hummus sandwich for lunch and served it with a side of baby carrots and a sliced apple.
After lunch and a conference call, Ryan and I decided to take advantage of this weird limbo period between our time in Florida and our move to Charlotte and spent an hour at the beach.
The ocean temperature was perfect and we spent nearly all of our time body surfing and riding the waves. It was a blast!!!
I hope you guys are having a great Monday!
