I traded in the dreary NYC weather for some California sunshine this past week, and boy did that sunshine feel good! Unfortunately, I was going for business, not pleasure, but I did have some down time to enjoy workouts on the beach and delicious (but healthy!) California food. Here are some scenes from the week. (Plus, check out some of my how-to-stay-healthy-while-traveling tips here.)
I drove for the first time since moving out to Brooklyn in November. Check this baby out:
A super early treadmill workout before a long day of work:
Some coworkers and me with one of our male models (hey, I didn’t say it was tough work!):
Black cod for dinner at Hotel Shangri-La:
Egg white omelet with basil and avocado for breakfast one morning:
View from the hotel. Not too shabby:
Dinner from a vegan restaurant nearby:
Cocktails by the fire pit:
Fresh oysters and seared arctic char from Blue Plate Oysterette in Santa Monica:
Pre-beach run protein smoothie from Jamba Juice:
Scenes from a run along the beach:
More delicious dinners (I ate a lot of fish on this trip – it’s so fresh out there!):
Kabocha Cobb Salad for Brunch:
And a pony!
The days were long and work was tough, but a week the California sunshine made it so worthwhile. Hopefully, New York will start to get warm soon! Silly lying groundhog.
