This weekend, I…

  • Went to the farmer’s market
  • Drank iced coffee
  • Enjoyed a yoga class
  • Went to a surprise party with good friends
  • Met other people who are as into nutrition as I am (much to Adam’s delight)
  • Got plenty of sleep
  • Opened a delicious bottle of red wine
  • Did a 5-mile hike with Adam
  • Got caught in the rain on said hike
  • Climbed tons of rocks
  • Spent time with God in nature, one of my favorite ways to connect with Him
  • Laughed a ton
  • Found myself choosing to be brave multiple times and got way out of my comfort zone
  • Had one of the best weekends in a really, really long time

A little more on that hike. We chose a difficult hike because we both like a physical challenge and they tend to over-exaggerate the strenuosity of the trails on the map at this particular spot. We took two trails, essentially, that connected to each other. The first part of the trail was .78 miles, was pretty flat and didn’t take us that long. They considered this one “strenuous”. When we reached the end, we decided to keep going on a trail we had never taken before that went on for another 1.8 miles. I remember mentioning that I just really wanted to climb rocks. Ahem…

Oh, we climbed rocks. This trail was CRAZY and SO much fun! Though less than halfway through the whole thing, we were caught in a very long, very cold downpour. It was in the low 60’s and raining and as you can see, we weren’t dressed for the occasion. In all fairness, the weatherman told us it would 70 with a very little chance for rain. It was uncomfortable for a good while, but we still had the best time. It ended up being just under 5.25 miles total and 2 hours long. Playing in nature’s playground with my best friend made for the perfect Sunday afternoon.

When you reach THAT and notice the little red dot to the top left of it and realize that no, it’s not a wall, it’s part of the trail.
