Ugh. Vacation is over, and it’s back to reality, but I will admit that I’m ecstatic to be back to my eating and workout routine.
Before I get back to talking about life as we know it, let’s get back to where I last left off.
I started my morning off with a 2.5 mile run. I was in a lot of pain from cramps, so I kept it short, and ran 1 mile later in the day when I was feeling a little bit better. After my run, I had no appetite, but tried to stomach a bowl of peanut butter oatmeal.
The past few weeks I’ve cut back on this breakfast because it hasn’t been settling well with my stomach. Not only has it been hurting my stomach, but it also makes me have acid reflux.
I then made it down to the beach, but stayed either on the towel or in the chair all day. My cramps were so bad that I didn’t want to move. Instead, I dug into my book and studied up.
We befriended the cutest little guy ever. Meet Thomas everyone!
I have baby fever! This is 8 months of pure cuteness.
After the beach, we ordered in, before heading to the Nubble, on Short Sands.
It was freezing and windy out, so we relied on Ryan to warm us up!
After hanging out around the Nubble, we went across the street to grab ice cream at Browns. Ryan and Chels shared pistachio and cookie dough, and I stole a few bites of both. I don’t really like ice cream. Fro-yo and soft-serve I’ll eat, but I won’t go out of my way to buy an ice cream. I’m weird, I know!
We went into several shops downtown, where we grabbed some taffy and souvenirs.
Goldenrod’s is FAMOUS for their taffy, and if you’re from anywhere close to Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, or New Hampshire, you KNOW about this special taffy.
You can stand on the sidewalk and watch as they make the taffy and the entire process from start to finish. The kids are always obsessed with this, and it’s so adorable to watch their faces light up as they understand how taffy is made and packaged.
We then headed over to my aunt and uncles’ beach house on Short Sands for several drinks and to hang out!
Around 11 we headed back to our house on Long Sands and hung out on our porch, before calling it a night.
Have you ever been the York Beach in Maine?
We’ve been coming here ever since I was born!
