Made it home!! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸปโœจBut not without stopping for lunch in Brooklyn. We met up with friends at a burger place and I was happily surprised to see they also serve brunch ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป I got a dish surprisingly similar to my avotoast a few posts back: toast ๐Ÿž, kale ๐ŸŒฟ, feta ๐Ÿง€, avocado ๐Ÿฅ‘, and an egg ๐Ÿณ. It was the perfect fuel to get us through the traffic and back home just in time to grocery shop and grab dinner before I crash ๐Ÿ˜ด Back to this office tomorrow after 3 weeks away ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ โ€ข

One last vacation breakfast before we drive home ๐Ÿš™๐Ÿก featuring some of my Philly favorites: @spreadbagelry everything bagel and @lacolombecoffee iced latte โ˜•๏ธ I'm going to miss you vacation! Back to the real world of meal prepping and gym going. BUT after so many weeks off I feel extremely well rested and extra motivated to get back into a healthy lifestyle โœจ โ€ข

And sweat I did!! ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ Thanks @soulcycle Rittenhouse for an AMAZING second ever soulcycle class! If you're in this area you need to try it. I swore I would never do soul again after a terrible first experience in Boston. I'm not going to mention names, but some staff made fun of me and my friends while we were trying to take pictures ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿฝ It was completely unnecessary and very rude. Buttttt I'm so glad I gave it a second chance. The Rittenhouse Square location was GORGEOUS and the staff were all so nice!! They asked how my weekend was, offered to help several times, and seemed like genuinely nice and caring people โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป I can't tell you how big of a difference that made for me. This experience was the complete opposite of my soulcycle ride in Boston. If I lived locally I would definitely be making a trip weekly ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Thank you x ๐Ÿ’ฏ to the amazing Rittenhouse SoulCycle staff!! โ€ข

Still drooling over the avocado toast I made for lunch yesterday: avocado, tomatoes, feta, and walnuts (mixed) ๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿ…๐Ÿž topped with two sunny side up eggs โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿณ TRY IT!! {swipe} to see how I started my day ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿฉ The sign said "World's Best Jelly Donut!" so obviously we had to try it! And it was pretty damn good. Can't say best in the world though - I'll have to try a few more before I decide ๐Ÿ˜‰. {swipe again} to see how I ended the day: Rita's gelati ๐Ÿง๐ŸฆIt's not something we get in MA so I always like to stop by when we're in NJ. Italian ice and frozen custard nom nom nom.

And that's it! It was an insanely sugary day that defines VACATION ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป It's all about balance right? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ โ€ข

When you sleep 10.5 hours (๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜ด) you have energy to go for a 4+ hour bike ride ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฃ No sleeping pills, blackout curtains, or long days caused this. My body just loves sleep! And on vacation, I have the luxury of letting myself sleep as much as I need ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป The bike ride was gorgeous with beach views all around us and ice cream at the halfway point ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿฆ What more could you ask for?! โ€ข

I don't swim but I do really like that I COULD if I wanted to and my @nokiahealth watch would capture it ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธโฑ Also I just like not having to worry about taking my watch on and off every day. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป It's the little things. Today was another gorgeous day on LBI โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ– and tonight: seafood! ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ˜ โ€ข

I'm back from India!! โœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ Instead of flying home (to Boston) I flew straight to Philadelphia to spend a week with my boyfriend and his family at their house on Long Beach Island. The timing was just luck (we have a wedding to go to down here this week) but I'm really happy it worked out this way. Work trips can be exhausting, so coming home to a week of beach vacation is perfect ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป I've been easing back into healthy foods and fitness after two weeks being sick in India. We started with a 3+ mile walk/run yesterday and a 6 mile test bike ride today. ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Tomorrow we hope to bike ~20 miles to an ice cream place I found on yelp ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฆ Will bike for ice cream! For dinner tonight was grilled chicken and veggies with a view ๐Ÿด๐ŸŒŠ It makes me really want a grill for quick and easy healthy meals. Someday! โ€ข

Reminding myself of my June goal to eat mindfully. ๐Ÿด๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ For me this means I can still truly enjoy this once in a lifetime trip to India, try literally everything, but eat only what I need to fuel myself (this is hard since everything is ridiculously delicious ๐Ÿ˜›). No workouts yet though ๐Ÿ™ˆ 12 hour workdays plus team dinners = getting back to the hotel around 11 and then preparing for the next days sessions. Sleep is minimal but the experience is priceless ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ Hopefully tomorrow I can wake up early enough to workout. Let's see! โ€ข

Landed in India! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณโœˆ๏ธ After way too much time sitting on the plane I was ready to explore! We caught a 2am tour to see the sun rise over the Taj Mahal and it was worth every minute of lost sleep ๐Ÿ˜ด I never thought I would get the opportunity to explore India so this work trip has been an amazing surprise. Now time to eat all the delicious food ๐Ÿฅ˜ ๐Ÿด Oh and get some work and workouts done of course ๐Ÿ˜† โ€ข

Happy Friday! Sitting in an airport waiting to begin an epic day of travel (after my flight was cancelled last night) โœˆ๏ธ and I'm actually jealous of my yesterday self who got to squeeze in a morning workout ๐Ÿ’ฆ I did my second lifting session of the week which included lots of pull-up type moves, bulgarian split squats, and single leg squats. Now time to sit for 30 hours or so ๐Ÿคฃ Kidding... sort of. I'm going to challenge myself to see how many steps I can get today!!

First day in the office this week = last full day in the office this month ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Tomorrow afternoon I'll be heading out on a 2 week work trip + 1 week of vacation โœˆ๏ธ This lifting workout was painful but I'll be so glad I did it when I'm sitting on the plan for 13 hours ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Fingers crossed I can get one more workout in tomorrow too! How has my eating been going you ask?? ๐Ÿด It's been better ๐Ÿ˜” I'm thinking about starting a food photo journal for while I travel to visually keep myself accountable (since tracking restaurant food is a pain). Thoughts?! โ€ข
