Tonight, we went on a 40-minute hike up a huge ridge.
I really love doing active things with my family versus just sitting around or watching a movie.
Before we left, I tried to eat some dinner:
But I just picked at the lasagna, eating the some of the pasta and the veggies. I’m actually experiencing a terrible flare-up of my stomach issues (whatever they are) so the cheese was not appealing.
My aunt and uncle came over after dinner.
They brought their pitbull, Mavis. Mavis is seriously obsessed with my mother because she’s the one who rescued her. My mom found Mavis on the side of the highway (someone had dumped her), and my aunt nursed her back to health.
Mavis is actually very camera shy and freaks out when you try to take her picture. :) Look how she’s staring at me out of the side of her eye - LOL!
We hopped in the car and drove to Blue Ridge State Park. On the way, I ate some almonds.
At the park, we found one of the trailheads and started to tackle the ridge.
I think we probably climb 1.5 mile or so? It took us about 40 minutes because the terrain was very steep and rocky.
When we reached the top, my auntie and mom were very proud of themselves — which they should’ve been! It was a serious climb and I was dripping with sweat at the top.
Well, I can’t decide if I’m hungry or if my stomach just hurts, but I’m going to rummage in the kitchen for a snack and see how it goes.
Tomorrow, we have a YOGA class (very excited) planned, but not much else — I’m looking forward to some relaxation.
