Hola! I am currently blogging from the future! Ando and I are at our friend Woody’s cottage today, so I have set this up in advance to post today as I am without internet access. I want to do a little recap of yesterday’s adventures!
It seems as though Ando and I have been bitten by the outdoor bug.
We are both on vacation this week and we definitely have a ton of stuff we want to get done around the house (such as vacuum, eek), but it was so absolutely beautiful yesterday that we were just not feeling chores in the least and all we wanted to do was get outside!
After a decent breakfast of a toasted bagel thin topped with goat cheese and Andmo’s grandma’s delicious strawberry preserves…
…we headed to Darlington Provincial Park. It is the closest provincial park to us (only 20 minutes away!) and though it isn’t the most secluded park (you can hear the highway a bit from the campground and even on the hiking trails), it is still pretty nice.
We did all three of the hiking trails, which totaled about 6k. Not too shabby!
I have really been slacking in the workout department this week (and last too). I’m really finding it hard to stay motivated to exercise in the summer when there are so many different things going on. Especially being on vacation this week. No regular routine makes it hard to keep up with the working out, so I’m happy I can squeeze active things like hiking into every day fun stuff.
We even made it down to the beach!
It’s pretty down there, but we just waded around a bit. I wore my bathing suit just in case but I’m not really keen on swimming in Lake Ontario in that area…there’s a bit of a stigma attached to it. Although I saw some peeps swimming and they seemed to be free of any extra limbs.
When we got back from our hiking adventure, all I wanted for dinner was salad, so I made myself a big one, jam-packed with goods.
But then I balanced it out by annihilating a peanut butter Snickers.
I saw those while we were grocery shopping and couldn’t resist… I felt kinda gross after it though, which reminded me why I don’t ever buy chocolate bars (except Reese Peanut Butter Cups, but those are different ;)).
Annnnd I’m out! Enjoy your Wednesday!
