Eating My Way Home

Nearly every time I am home, the trip revolves around food.  After having Casey’s friends in town last week and being home this week, I am going to need a major diet overhaul to start right along with my new job.

Yesterday we started the day with Surf Bagel where I had a Pork Roll, Egg and Cheese on a Whole Wheat Everything bagel.  It is an absolute staple of food from home and NEVER disappoints!

IMG_1677After putting myself in a sufficient food coma, my mom and I went around to all the local shops that I love and don’t have in Charleston.  I ended up with two new dresses that I am in love with.  I almost pulled the trigger on a new bathing suit as well, it was so gorgeous but $128 for a suit is more that I can stomach.

Once we were sufficiently worn out with that we came home in time for me to take my little brother to his Crossfit where I stayed and went for a run.  I had 4×800’s on the agenda and they were TOUGH.  It was hot, humid and there was no breeze but I muddled through.  By the end I was totally spent and downed two full water bottles.  I am sure I was dehydrated before even setting out of the run.  Being home has gotten me completely out of any routine to keep up with water intake.

This morning I got my run in early, an easy three miler before going to lunch with my grandparents at Agave.  This place has the best Mexican food I have ever had.  I got a Farmer’s Market Quesadilla and it was amazing.  It was so fresh and delicious.

Luckily I had planned to go to dinner with my friend Megan tonight so I actually got to show off my lovely styled hair before running and having to wash it, ruining her handiwork.  We went to Stingray and had a feel rolls of sushi and had a chance to catch up on life and what not.  It crazy how much can change so fast and how much stays the same really.  Every time I come home I am reminded of that.

I have one more day left here before heading home (to Charleston) and we have a jam packed day ahead of us tomorrow.  Off to bed for me!

  1. Looks like you had fun visiting family and getting your hair cut! That bagel looks delicious too :). Don’t feel bad about it, at least you are still fitting in your running!
