Day 31: the day after

I woke up at 6:30 this morning to go on a hike. Take that in for a minute. I. Woke at 6:30 am, on purpose. On a Sunday. To go for a hike.

My friend picked me up at 7 and off we went. There’s a nature preserve about 30 minutes south that has trails to walk. They are short, intertwined trails. The maps on site are for directional purpose and don’t explain what type of hike each trail holds.

As luck would have it, we picked the hardest. It was a never ending incline. All in all we did 4,4 miles and the equivalent of 38 floors of stairs. I’m telling you – all incline.

As I was dying trying to pull my body up these stairs we just kept saying how good it felt to be there and to be out moving our bodies.

When we finished it was warm, we were tired and starving. We decided to go out to breakfast. It was just after 10 when we ordered our first margaritas.

They had a great menu of greasy American classics and rich Mexican staples. I surprised myself when I opted for build-your-own breakfast tacos.

I chose eggs, bacon, mushrooms, black beans an pico with a side of fruit. Technically the only off wholeo thing was the tortillas and the chips we ate. We were really starving and I have no regrets!

When I got home I didn’t feel like drinking more. We had our 2 margs and great food, by the time I got home I wanted to rest.

I took a shower and spent the rest of day bundled on the couch. It’s 9:30 and I’m in bed already. My body is tired from today and I think that’s great.

I’m really looking forward to my walk around the lake tomorrow after work. I have my wholeo lunch packed and I’m ready for a new week! πŸ’ͺ

  1. I agree. Your writing lets us feel that you are in the room, Duffy, and your pics are always spot-on. Maybe you should just blog again and not have to do a “challenge”, although you convinced me that “if Duffy can do it, so can I”. And that was just getting out of bed lol.
    Thanks for all of your open hearted writing! I’ll be following to see what you decide…

Go ahead, say it...
