That didn’t quite work out as planned, everything from getting a walk cut short to over cooking some steaks. Bah! I wasn’t going to let that one day dictate how the whole weekend was going to be though.
Saturday we headed out because I wanted to hike Horsetooth. I know it’s a popular trail but it is really pretty and we have yet to hike that whole trail. We arrived and the trailhead was full so it was closed off. We drove around and found another trailhead that was still open and decided to check it out.
So glad that we did! We did about a 6 mile hike (out and back) and part of the trail was up a steep incline. We weren’t able to go all the way to the top due to time constraints which was a bummer but we still had an awesome hike. The weather was perfect with a slight breeze keeping us from getting too hot.
We came home and had a really comforting meal of meatballs and polenta. No picture because I was too busy stuffing my face!
Sunday, the weather was even better! We had a sunny 80 degree day. Scott and I, and the two punks, spent as much time as we could just lounging in the backyard soaking up all that glorious sun and warmth.
Saturday I rarely checked my phone and Sunday I didn’t even go on my computer once.
It was the perfect weekend.
Taking time to unplug and just be present and in the moment is so important. I think sometimes we get so focused on staying up to date and trying to document everything we forget to actually live it. One of the weekly challenges in my accountability group is taking time to unplug.
I love this idea so much that I will be running a challenge group focused on this concept. The group will start in April and will be more introspective. Instead of focusing on food we will working on self-care. Things like making sure to get enough sleep each night, taking time to unplug each day, and spending quality time with people we care about.
Self-care is so important for our heath and well-being! I try to incorporate this into each day. If you’re interested in joining my April challenge group just let me know! It’s a free group, there is nothing to purchase. It will run for 21 Days and we will be doing little exercises each day that are geared towards self-care and taking time to unplug.
