On day 4, we were up early again for some exercise. After the requisite coffee, I headed out for a 35 minute run on the boardwalk. I felt great! I really picked up the pace at the end and finished strong. After my run, I walked for about 20 minutes to cool down.
Once I returned to the B&B, I downed a big glass of water and a juicy apple.
After Nate returned from Attila Gym and we showered and packed up our bags, we said goodbye to the Holly Beach Bed & Breakfast.
Our next stop – a New Jersey diner breakfast! I was really craving an omelet and the Las Vegas diner delivered.
I ordered the spinach and feta omelet with homefries and whole wheat toast.
Nate ordered the sausage and cheddar omelet (Nate - where are the veggies???)
My run made me one hungry lady – I ate every single bite
After a few more hours of beach time, we hit the road and headed back to the city.
At a rest stop I bought a strawberry-banana Odwalla smoothie. This smoothie has a lot of sugar, so you might not want to drink it every day, but it’s a pretty good rest-stop find.
On the train back to the city, I broke into my fudge stash. Check out the yummy flavors: Snickers (on top), Cookies ‘n Cream, and Chocolate Chip. The shop where I bought this smelled SO yummy. Everyday they use fresh whipping cream and make the fudge on-site.
My big brunch coupled with a long day of travelling kind of killed my appetite. But once we arrived back at my apartment, I knew I should eat something filling. I toasted up the last of my French Meadow Bakery hemp bagels and topped it with peanut butter, berry jam, and a banana. Yum!
The beach was fun, but now it’s back to my regular workday schedule. Happy hump day!
