After running the 5k on Thursday night Ryan and I were pretty much "anti doing anything athletic" on Friday. We had both left work early in the day to begin our journey to Jacksonville. We had dinner with friends Jane and Pepi at the new house (they recently moved to Jacksonville from Jupiter). After our delicious meal of salmon, asparagus, and rice, we headed over to Alex's house where we were spending the night.
Saturday morning Ryan and I managed to get out of bed and head out for a very hot and muggy run. We only managed to do 2 miles in 20 minutes, but something is always better than nothing. After we showered and packed up our things we headed to the Original Pancake House to have breakfast with Alex before we left for St. Augustine. I had an egg cooked over easy, 2 pieces of turkey sausage, and 1 piece of wheat toast, along with copious amounts of coffee.
The drive to St. Augustine was relatively short and we managed to get to our hotel, the Casa Monica, around noon. Our room wasn't ready yet but luckily we had worn our bathing suits and were able to head straight to the pool. We lounged in the sun for a couple of hours before it was time to start getting ready for Danielle and Billy's wedding.
The wedding was a lot of fun and we had a good time hanging out with a bunch of my sorority sisters and their husbands. We managed to make it out after the wedding to a couple of local bars. After a lot of drinking, dancing, and laughing it was time to call it a night.
Sunday morning we woke up and packed up our things and checked out of the hotel just before 11am. We had driven by a diner on our way into town and decided to hit it up on our way out of town. Georgie's Diner was just what we needed after too much fun the night before. I love breakfast more than any other meal and jumped at the chance to order eggs, hash browns, and bacon. I ate everything on my plate (except for the 2nd piece of toast) and felt completely satisfied.
We hit up some of the outlet stores in St. Augustine and then started our drive home (after a couple of thrifty purchases of course). Halfway through the drive Ryan got hungry again and we stopped for lunch at Subway's. I opted for a 6 inch veggie on 9 grain wheat bread with provolone cheese, spinach, red onions, black olives, and honey mustard sauce. Along with my sub I tried a bag of Baked Lay's potato chips in their new flavor, Parmesan and Tuscan herb. They were by far the best nutritional choice of potato chips with only 120 calories and 3 grams of fat, compared to over 200 calories for the bag of Sun Chips I had my eye on.
After meeting up with my parents somewhere near Geneva we picked up Honey and headed home. We lounged around on the couches for a couple of hours and then motivated ourselves to do the back and chest workout for p90x, followed by the ab ripper X segment. I'm really happy that we made ourselves work out even though we were so tired from the weekend. We rewarded ourselves with some burgers from Johnny's Fillin' Station.
