Anyway, it was an amazing trip. We were staying at the Sea Gate Condos in Indian Shores. Wednesday when I got there, I unpacked and got my bathing suit on right away to head down to the beach! The weather was beautiful! A little bit windy at times, but I definitely can’t complain. I got a little bit of a tan, but not much color. My Nana insisted that I wear sunscreen “just incase”, so I obliged. Wednesday we went to dinner at a place called the Conch Republic in Indian Shores. It was magnificent. It reminded me of a Jimmy Buffet style restaurant with outdoor seating as well as indoor, a decent sized bar area, and an islandy feel. The menu was great too! I ordered the Red Snapper, grilled dry (as reccommended by my TT) with steamed broccoli and a baked potato. That fish was some of the best I have EVER had. Ahhh if they only had such good seafood in PA…
Thursday morning, I woke up at 6:30 to go for a 5 mile walk with my TT on the beach and got to stick my toes in the Gulf of Mexico 🙂 On the way back we got to watch the sun rise, which was completely stunning. I ate my breakfast of FF cottage cheese and SF strawberry jelly topped with some Fiber One, and then, we went for breakfast at a restaurant that was the daily breakfast place of choice called The Frog Pond. I like to make my own food, so when we went out for breakfast I usually just had some coffee and fruit. My fruit plate came with a huge portion of cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, grapes, and a slice of orange on the top. Usually, I just ate some of the melon and saved the rest for dessert after dinner!
After breakfast, I let my food digest for about 1/2 hour before I took off for my 5 mile run, which I got in everyday except Wednesday. It felt so good to run outside again as opposed to the treadmill! Time flies by while running in a scenic setting!
My lunches while in Florida consisted of the typical lunch at home, scrumptuous broccoli slaw with a bit of soy sauce, laughing cow cheese, and chickpeas. It’s like my go-to-dish. It never gets old for me and keeps me full for hours! Typically I also have fruit with it so my meal is more well-rounded. Apples are key since I’m not intaking many carbs with this dish.
By the way, there are many more photos to come of the condo and my trip! I just haven’t gotten a chance to upload them all yet! Also, stay tuned because there are lots of new and exciting product reviews on the way.
