I try to take advantage of being active over my lunch hour as it frees up my evening to
relax, do chores or hang out with my husband when he is home. Yesterday I packed my snowshoes and winter gear and figured I’d go out at lunch for a little trek.
I headed over to this little trail as the sun was beating down on me. The wind was whipping around and the light snow that recently fell was dancing all over the place!
Sun shining bright……….
Leaving the trail behind….
It was about 3km’s and took around a half hour to snowshoe around the loop. I returned to my office and started back at work feeling energized. All of a sudden I crashed HARD! I could barely keep my eyes open let alone, be functional. It wasn’t pretty.
You see, I was up at 2:45 with Hilary; she had to pee. Then I couldn’t fall back to sleep even though I tried. At 3:45 (I was still awake), Lilly woke up crying….she missed Daddy. She cried until close to 5 am – no joke! Poor girl. She eventually fell asleep beside me but I was WIDE awake! I eventually fell asleep only to have my alarm go off 45 minutes later.
I was completely exhausted from lack of sleep and the fresh air I got snowshoeing. Sunshine, snow and cold wind blowing around……..perfect way to spend your lunch break.
Do you get out on your lunch break?
Are you loving the winter temp and getting outside or staying inside and hibernating ?
