It was such a fun feeling to wake up in my favorite city! Christie and I have a pretty full day planned and I’m so thankful that I slept well last night because we are going to be bu-sy!
First off, was breakkie. I had two packets of Kashi Go Lean hot cereal with a banana and a spoonful of Mighty Maple pb:
In her tiny loft apartment, Christie doesn’t have a microwave OR a dishwasher so I had to make this instant oatmeal on the stove! It was yummy and filling though and I was glad I planned ahead.
When you travel, do you bring breakfast food (like instant oatmeal)? How do you stay on track with your healthy eating when away from home?
I’m about to go move my car since Charleston is so crazy with parking here—-last night I parked on the street because it is free from 8 pm-8 am and then at 8 this morning I have to move over to the lot across the street for 24 hour parking for $7. A little bit of a hassle but I refuse to get booted!
In about half an hour I’m going to start walking over to my yoga class. Oh, how I’ve made this exact same walk from campus to the yoga studio hundreds of times. Its such a joyful walk down King Street before all the shops are open and the tourists are out. It takes about 10-15 minutes to walk there and then my class is 75 minutes and afterwards I’ll walk back. Can you see now why Charleston is such a healthy place to live?! All that walking makes you lean and mean!
When Christie gets out of class we are immediately walking here for lunch. Five Loaves Cafe is my favorite spot in Charleston for a quick lunch. Their soups, salads and sandwiches cannot be beat. And then after we eat we are just walking around town for the rest of the day. I love it!
See you in a bit!
