Hiking: The dirtier you get, the more fun you have.
We decided to take our workout to nature today. The thought of being cooped up in the gym or even running our usual route around our neighborhood just wasn’t appealing. So the Husband, my sister-in-law Sophie, James, and I headed to nearby Latta Plantain Park.
Hiking hint: Take a picture of the trail map before setting out. If you’re anything like me and have a terrible natural sense of direction, it will come in handy… at every single fork in the trail.
The trail was beautiful. There were lots of little hills, too, so it really felt like a good, hard workout.
We did a 2.5 – 3 mile hike and didn’t see a single other hiker the entire time. Very, very peaceful.
Backing up… The Husband made Sophie and I breakfast, as he usually does when we have house guests.
He used the wok to make what essentially is a skinny frittata. He just poured beaten eggs into the bottom of the wok and topped with tomatoes, spinach, and goat cheese and let it cook from the bottom up. No need to put it under the broiler because the slices weren’t thick enough, like a true frittata. It was good.
With toast and homemade hashbrowns.
We, truthfully, did not plan for our hike very well and ended up running into the grocery store for an emergency lunch. I grabbed a banana, a Vanilla Chat Tea soy protein shake, and a few of the Husband’s crisps.
I have half that shake leftover and am going to toss it into the blender with some frozen strawberries to make a smoothie.
Thought of the Day:
“Being happy doesn’t always make us grateful, but being grateful will always make us happy.”
