Hi, friends! I’m headed back east and blogging from the flight right now. (I caved and bought the super expensive internet again. What can I say, I really like blogging.)
I was on my own for breakfast this morning (the other Fitfluential ambassadors headed home last night and early today), so I hit up the cafÃ© in the hotel lobby. I ordered an egg, bacon, and cheese sandwich on an English muffin, a banana, and an iced coffee with soy milk. The egg sandwich was super cheesy and wonderful, but the bacon was a little weird, so I took a few bites and then tossed the rest in the trash. Weird bacon = no bueno. The banana was awesome (obviously) and the iced coffee was amazing (duh).
I spent the rest of the morning writing my Health post and organizing my photos from the CrossFit Games. I took over 400 photos in the past 3 days, so expect a few more posts in the coming days!
My wonderful and amazing friend Monica offered to drive me to the airport this afternoon, so we grabbed lunch at Sharky’s Woodfired Mexican Grill before heading to LAX so we could hang out (and eat).
Sharky’s is a “fresh-mex grill” with a healthy and interesting menu””burritos, tacos, and salads made with natural and organic ingredients. It’s a take-out-style restaurant, so Monica and I placed our orders and then sat down at a table to wait for one of the Sharky’s folks to bring out our food once it was ready.
There were a lot of delicious-sounding options on the menu, but I eventually decided on Chicken Lettuce Wraps. (I’m sort of obsessed with lettuce wraps lately. I also ate them for dinner last night.)
I added fire roasted salsa, hot sauce, and jalapenos to my lettuce wraps””holy hotness! My mouth was on fire and my face was sweating! Yowsahs!
After lunch, Monica dropped me off at the airport. As always, it was so nice to see her. She’s good people. I think our next get-together is in September for Fitbloggin’. Woohoo!
I arrived at the airport about two hours before my flight was supposed to depart.
To pass the time, I bought some Pretzel M&Ms, kicked my feet up, and read WOD Talk, which had a great article about Julie Foucher. After her amazing performance at the CrossFit Games, I am totally in love/obsessed with her… and I may or may not have met her last night. No big deal.
A little while later, I was still hungry, so I bought a banana to snack on.
Shortly after I ate my banana, we boarded the plane to Boston. Even though I had an absolute blast in California over these past few days, I am ready to get home. I miss my guys.
I ordered dinner on the plane, which was a turkey sandwich with Havarti cheese, pesto, tomato, and arugula. The pesto totally made the sandwich””what a delicious addition. Dessert was a small piece of dark chocolate.
I also drank cranberry juice and water with my dinner.
Question of the Day
What do you look forward to most after coming home from a trip?
Mine are””in this order””seeing Mal and Murphy, sleeping in my own bed, and eating my own food. I miss my nut butter and smoothies!
