My poor hubs!
We started Friday morning with breakfast at home, and then headed right for the Cape May Zoo. It was the perfect day for a stroll through the zoo. Poor hubs, I made him walk, and walk, and walk.
|For real, this guy was doing laps around his enclosure, it was hysterical!|
|my favorite part! SO shady and cool|

We hit the Outlets first, lots more walking, plus a cute dress and shirt from Forever 21 and a new Coach wallet. Not too shabby! Then it was time for the massage the hubs surprised me with the week before. I put the phone away so there are no pics, just one hour of total bliss.
Little bit of trivia: getting a massage releases toxins, and when you are on your stomach and the masseuse is massaging your back, it makes your nose stuff up. It.was.crazy. When I finally sat up, I was woozy and she said that was normal, too. I think I got almost all the way back to the lockers before I felt normal again!
We had so much time before dinner, that we decided to walk some more. We hit the boards and started walking, thinking of getting a snack. First we stopped to take some pics of this massive sandcastle...
We walked a bit more, then decided it was time to shower for dinner. I was all oily from my massage, so I definitely didn't mind! I decided to wear my new dress. Don't we clean up nice? We were about to try out Amada, a Spanish restaurant that serves Tapas, small plates of the most delicious food!
We couldn't decide what we wanted, so we ordered it all! 6 different dishes, plus a bonus dish sent out by the chef. From left to right, top to bottom: Lamb meatballs ... flat bread with duck, foie gras, and fig ... ham croquettes ... a cheese I can't remember with bread and lavender honey ... chorizos ... spicy potatoes ... and the chips and sauce from the chef. OMG I ate a little of each and it.was.heaven.
We thought we would donate a little money to the casino as well, but we actually won a bit at the money wheel, and then I spent a little of that playing Willy Wonka slots (what fun!).
The next morning, I ran 4 miles on the boards. It was humid, but not too terrible! We also did a bit ore shopping, and I ended both days with around 18K steps!
I definitely went over my points on those 2 days because, of course, we had breakfast and lunch out on Saturday as well (crepes with Nutella for breakfast and lunch at Atlanta Bread) but I was sure to make better choices every day afterwards.
I ended the week down 1 pound, which I will take, thank you very much!
Marathon training has been going well, and I don't want to derail now that summer is here!
Do you stay active on your vacations? Do you watch what you eat?
