After lunch, I went down to the beach to just hang out. I swam a while in the ocean, but then something brushed against my leg so I had to get out. Yes, I am that person. After seeing that jellyfish washed up on the beach during my morning run, I was super paranoid about jellyfish stings and kept on psychosomatically feeling itchy.
Then I did my favorite beach activity…sitting on the beach and reading with my feet in the ocean! The Help is so addicting, I’m already a third of the way through. A lot of sunburns sprouted up on me after the first day in the sun (particularly on my chest and my belly) because I forgot to reapply sunscreen and because I’m not used to the strength of the Southern sun! This time when I read on the beach I reapplied sunscreen every 30 minutes (paranoid much?) and I think it’s safe to say that I didn’t get any MORE burnt than I already was.
For dinner we went to Steak and Shake, a fast food place that was kind of like Johnny Rockets but not as good.
I went all out and got a shake, bacon cheeseburger, and fries (it is vacation after all!). The burger and fries weren’t impressive, but the shake was AMAZING!
I didn’t feel very well afterwards though, and it reminded me the real reason I try to eat healthy: because it makes me physically feel better!
- Do you like swimming in the ocean? Why or why not?
- Do you ever overeat or eat things that don’t make you feel great just because you want to? Do you consider it to be indulgent or problematic?
