Guess who’s on her way home! Meeeeee!
Don’t mind that quick childlike moment. It’s casual. I’m so sad to have left the Southern Virginia sands (and any future of getting more bronze) behind, but I’m ready to be home. Hitting the gym, making fancy yummy things, and seeing all of my buddies. Lilly bunker, can’t wait to see ya.
I got a little bit of color on my trip.
And ate yummy things. Last night I was bad (oh so very, very bad) and had some BBQ-d Southern chicken which was so, so good.
Afterwards, we swam at Grandma’s beach and saw some dolphins swimming! I didn’t get any pictures of the dolphins, but I got an awesome shot of the sunset.
This morning, I started my day with quinoa, peanut butter, and blueberries. Best recipe ever. To come your way! On the side, I had Earl Grey with Almond Breeze Almond-Coconut blend and stevia instead of my usual coffee. It was a nice switch-up! Then, it was time to send off for home.
Lunch was had in the car.
Spinach, half of an avocado (chopped and scooped), a cup of pre-made quinoa from this morning (always planning ahead!), and Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette from Trader Joe’s. Great combination! Held me for a good 3-4 hours.
Snack was a Salmon burger from TJ’s with ketchup.

Satisfied. On the long car ride (about 11 hours) I’ve been blog-reading and brainstorming. You have no idea how excited a girl can get about going to the gym while sitting in the car for this long.
But really though.
Dinnertime rolled around, and I needed some nourishment. I was hoping for a Panera to come up, but the next best thing was a Starbucks. Since they didn’t have my beloved Spinach and Feta wrap, I got an oatmeal with nuts, Passion Iced Tea on the side.
LÄRABAR for dessert! I’m not quite satisfied, so I’m going to see if I can find some protein on the way home.
After a few days of not working out, I am so giddy to get back to the BURN.
Love the beach?
Where are you vacationing this summer?
More importantly: How did you rock the challenge today??
See you back at the Chef Katelyn HQ!
