I had a good vacation. I did some shopping...actually, I did a a lot of shopping. I did some eating... AND...I walked. A LOT! If you ever get a chance to go to Charleston, I highly recommend it. It's the perfect city to see on foot. I went to college there so I'm very familiar with the city. It was great to be back. Charleston was very good to me when I was in college. I love that city!
I was really excited to get on the road and arrive at Wild Dunes. We stayed in a private residence condo. It was lovely and spacious. Just a hop from the beach. I'm not a beach person so I really only went out there once to take a few photos. I was really excited because Wild Dunes has two gym facilities, and I would be able to get my work out on while I was there. Unfortunately, I found out the the gym was only for resort patrons and I didn't have access to it. So, Plan B...I decided to utilize the many walking paths on the property. That turned out to be the best thing ever!
|Seriously...this freaked me out |
when I saw it.
|This deer family was a lovely sight to see. There were six of them. Rather nosy if you ask me... #js|
So after all was said and done...I lost quite a bit of weight while I was on vacation. And believe me, I was eating. I ate at Hyman's Seafood Restaurant, which was voted the best seafood restaurant in SC. I was rather excited to eat there too. I could never afford to eat there while I was in college. They definitely had the best hush puppies I've ever tasted. I even purchased some hush puppy mix so I could make them at home. I also ate at my one of my favorite college spots, Wild Wing Cafe. It was awesome to eat Honey Mustard and Gold Rush again. I also had a small Ben and Jerry's sundae as well as deep fried cheese cake bites, but I made sure to share the bites with my dinner companions.
So, my vacation was a success. I was hoping to maintain my weight and made adjustments on my LiveStrong App to help along the way. I didn't track everything I ate because it was difficult to know exact measurements. Sometimes I split my meals into two or three servings. I also made sure to have a nice breakfast or lunch at the condo that I prepared myself every day.
It's a great feeling to know that I was able to keep myself on track while I was away and have a good time too. So in honor of retracing my college roots, I'm going to end this entry with a bit of Dave Matthews Band...What Would You Say? I say I'd love some more cheesecake bites right now :) YUM!!
