Yesterday was gorgeous!
I went for an outside run on the West Ashley Greenway.
This path runs the entire length of Savannah Hwy. I prefer to run the unpaved section closer to the Limehouse bridge, as it has more of a nature trail feel.
On that same note, I have finally, after 3 months of letting it all go, gotten back on track with food and fitness. Something just clicked, and I'm so happy to be in my groove again.
It's not about dieting for me, it's about smarter choices.
Instead of peanut m&m's, I'll opt for some of these:
In other news, Rumor has it that Maybank Hwy has some exciting updates in store.
Months of construction have revealed the first phase of "Maybank Gathering Place", a huuuge apartment complex spanning 22 acres with it's own parking garage. To me, this is not so much exciting as frustrating for an already over crowded island, but with growth comes opportunity so...
I heard through the grapevine that the former Maybank Piggly Wiggly is set to be rebuilt as a Specialty Store concept by Harris Teeter. It will be similar to Whole Foods, with a second floor Wine Bar and will be called 201 Central.
And I'm sure y'all have heard about Coleman Public House coming to the island as Maybank Public House. I love this idea! It is set to open in the former Locklear's/Mustard Seed.
The only downfall here is the already ridiculous parking situation going on in the same shopping ctr (that houses our beloved How Art Thou and Zia).
Also for Charlestonians, Food and Wine Fest is this weekend. Tomorrow night is a cool Pecha Kucha event centered around the culinary scene down at Charleston Music Hall. The premise of PK is that a series of presenters each have 3 or so minutes to introduce their ideas to the crowd. It's a gathering of creatives and this event costs $40 which includes food and drink.
I am thrilled to be free as a bird this weekend.
I predict good food, a couple workouts, and a Sunday drive through some neighborhoods that have piqued our interest lately.
See y'all next week!
