When it is 70 degrees and sunny in the middle of November, you should not spend your day inside. Instead of grocery shopping and cooking all day, I abandoned my normal routine. Christian and I headed to York River State Park outside of Williamsburg. (Cole spent the night a friend’s house, so we had another kid free night/day. I’m just starting to get used to not seeing Cole for a day on the weekend. Just in time to have a baby.)
Before we left the house this morning, Christian did spend some time in the kitchen. He made me a very yummy breakfast – scrambled egg whites with red and orange peppers, spinach, and provolone topped with salsa. Avocado and corn bread were the perfect sides. I ended up cutting everything up and mixing it all together. Not a bad way to start a Sunday.
With full bellys, we head off to the park. Christian biked the mountain bike trails. I walked the hiking trails. For a brief moment, I considered running while we were driving to the park. The thought quickly vanished as soon as my body started carrying my bowling ball belly and 30+ extra pounds along the trail. Walking it was. I walked a little over 4 miles at a snails pace. Since I’m moving slow these days, I made sure I really enjoyed my surroundings. The trail was covered in leafs. I love the sound of them crunching under my shoes. The river was beautiful with the sun reflecting of the water. I explored a few trails and a few paths that may not have been trails. It was a great day to be outside breathing in the fresh air.
Hope you enjoyed your Sunday as much as we did! Not a bad way to head into a 3 day work week and Thanksgiving!
Don’t tell Christian, but I actually miss riding my mountain bike (even though I’m normally dragging my heels whenever we head out.) And I really miss my running legs.
