This morning Ben and I decided to explore the Seaport Village before we needed to check out of our hotel. I grabbed an iced coffee and was ready to go!
I don’t know if I had mentioned it, but I drove down to San Diego solo for Blogher on Friday. Ben took the train here yesterday afternoon to spend the rest of the weekend with me since it’s just 80 miles north of us! It is just $23 on Amtrak from Irvine to San Diego and this way we can drive back together.
Then, the first “Ah-ha!” moment of my documenting = I had half this pack of mango bites. Stuff like this misses the camera all the time. This is exactly what I want out of being more accountable. Not that I’m making changes yet, just getting aware.
After checking out of our hotel Ben and I went on a wild goose chase trying to find a good Mexican restaurant. The one we found on Yelp ended up being closed.
I have been craving a massive salad all weekend and knew that’s what I wanted. I got the Cobb Salad with a bunch of modifications including – tuna salad instead of grilled chicken, hold the blue cheese. LOVED IT. It had everything I love in a salad = mixed greens and bibb lettuce, chopped tomatoes, cucs, avocado, hard boiled egg and tuna!!!
The.Best.Salad. I’ve ever had at a restaurant. And it was massive. I considered asking if I could buy the bucket bowl, but opted to save a shred of my dignity after I had already devoured 5 pounds of food at this place.
I felt like I was getting sun burn and decided to rock my sweater as a blanket. I know you’re impressed with my fashion sense.Ben is a Mechanical Engineer and was in machine heaven. He took almost 200 pictures of the different planes super close.
I had great snacks for the road trip home! Kath gave me 2 packs of Oikos that I froze earlier so it would last.
I’m still “all in” with intuitive eating (just going to be more aware) and have realized preferences and dislikes lately. For example – recently discovered I don’t care for carrots that much and like everything except Doritos in this bag.
I’m exhausted – can’t wait to get home!
Oh, to everyone asking about the “Little Black Dress” from last night… It’s from Nordstrom Rack, but I bought it in December for a Christmas party. I didn’t end up wearing it and it’s been sitting in my closet since!
