north fork – fun on the water

My father-in-law raced in a triathlon on Sunday morning, which was our main reason for heading down to the North Fork.  We were up bright and early to watch him race, which allowed us to have a full and relaxing rest of the day.

The beach was gorgeous this morning!

While waiting for the race to start, I headed out on a 4.5 mile run of my own.  I ran the course route and loved how peaceful it was.  I was feeling good and finished the 4.5 miles in 40 minutes.  My run was complete on a Sunday morning by 6:30am!  I had the whole rest of the day to relax. 🙂

I snacked on an Empower Glo Bar and a coconut water while watching the race.

A few of you asked me to let you know how the Glo Bars were.  Well, this is the only flavor that I have tried so far, but it was unbelievebly delicious!  I don’t know how Angela does it, but the bar was soft yet stuck together so well.  The flavor was awesome – I love the coffee and chocolate combination.  I can’t wait to try some more!

After the race, we ate breakfast – yogurt, hemp granola and a banana for me.

And, a veggie juice (I have no idea what was in it, since the shop was out of a lot, but it tasted mostly like carrots).

Then, we headed out on the boat!

We ended up on Shelter Island’s shore.  The houses are gorgeous!

It was a phenomenal day – sunny and hot, but cooler on the water.

Everyone had fun swimming in the ocean and enjoying the day.

It was the perfect summer day.

We ate a late lunch, then headed to the ferry for our journey home.  I hate that weekends have to come to an end!!

glouchester boat ride

We spent the day in Glouchester, MA on Sunday with some friends.  We chatted, ate and sailed on a boat!

I started the day with some Overnight Oats as fuel for the day, since I am never sure while out and about what type of food I will want to eat.  I mean, there is always food to eat, but I like healthy, good-for-you-food, and sometimes in a group that is hard to come by!

Overnight oats with 1/3 cup oats, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 2 tbsp unsweetened coconut, 1/2 banana, 1/3 cup banana mango yogurt, 1/3 cup almond milk.  Stir and let sit in the fridge overnight.

Topped with a champagne mango and granola.

Once in Glouchester, we stopped at an adorable tea shop for a treat!

I ordered the veggie juice, which was full of veggies – and delicious!!

After strolling around for awhile, it was lunch time.

We sat on the patio since it was such a gorgeous day.

I ordered the Sweet & Spicy Shrimp Salad, which was awesome!  (But, unpictured)

Then, it was time for our boat ride!

We all purchased Groupons for this ride and we are so glad we did!  It was so much fun to be out on the water with friends on a nice day!  The Captain and Crew of the ship were hilarious and did a great job of keeping everyone happy and well accommodated with snacks and beer.

Such a fun way to spend a low-key Sunday!
