If you’ve been reading along for a while then you know that I’ve been pretty active during the third trimester of my pregnancy. I have loved exercising and it’s made me feel so great! My favorite feeling comes after the workout once I step out of a cool shower and then put on comfy loungewear…..It’s a glorious feeling!
Anyway, my sister and her boyfriend came over for dinner last night and we decided to go for a little hike after dinner! We knew this hike wouldn’t be anything too crazy, and luckily we had all done it before. I was super excited because I think it’s been about 2 years since Jared and I last hiked! So off we went on our hiking adventure! — BTW we had these Paleo Chicken Tenders for dinner and I was really impressed!
We scoped out the map before we began to make sure that we didn’t end up taking a longer trail. Well, my leg muscles began burning about 10 seconds in….I couldn’t believe how much I struggled! I was breathing heavily nearly the entire time and some parts weren’t even uphill! I was truly shocked! I guess I thought since I had been exercising so much that this little hike would be no big deal, but it was! I guess it’s the incline that made it tough. I was sooo happy that we took the short route which was about .8 miles to the top, so we ended up doing about 1.6 miles total. I was fine, but I don’t think I will attempt another hike while I’m this pregnant; It’s a whole different ball game!! Despite my sad lungs, we had so much fun!! There were a lot of people on the trail which was cool, and the trees did a nice job of blocking the sun. Of course we stopped for a quick photo opp; Aren’t they cute?
Now for mama bear….. 😛
Aw, she will be such a fun aunt!
And then we made it to the top! Literally the moment we were reaching the top, it began to POUR!!! We kept waiting for the rain to let up, but I wasn’t calming down. We snapped a few pictures in the rain and then headed back down.
My love! We had so much fun hiking together; We really want to start doing it more frequently once Beckham is here!
“Let’s take a picture in the rain!!”
We were all soaked by the end. I was so glad I didn’t bring my phone! We had no idea rain was even in the forecast..It was so random!! But it felt really good since we were all sweating so much!So soaked!! 😛 We had so much fun spending time with Victoria and Nolan. Hopefully I’ll be able to get back out on that trail a couple months after Beckham’s arrival and I’ll be able to crush it! 🙂
Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend guys!!
