Sunday hiking and food

Hey All –

I am sad that the weekend is over. I had a pretty wonderful weekend, and I wish it was a longer one.

Sunday was a great day. I decided to sleep in – and slept until 10am. The only thing I had on the agenda was to be out of the house by noon.  Ben and I were planning to go on a nice hike in Lexington and Concord.

My first step was to create a great weekend breakfast that would keep me full for a while. I decided to have an egg white sandwich with a bagel. Yum.

This sandwich had everything: carbs, protein, and a little bit of fat (thanks to Earth-balance). It kept me full for hours!

Ben and I went on a great hike on Sunday. We hiked along the Battle Road Trail in the Minute Man National Park. We walked for five miles in just under two hours, stopping along to way to look at the historic homes and sites. It was a little cold, about 48 degrees maybe maxing out at 50 degrees when the sun was out. Here is a picture of me on the trail:

I was layered up (holding my Lululemon jacket on the side!) and I had my awesome Camelbak for the trail, too.  At the halfway point, Ben and I stopped for a few minutes to enjoy some trail mix that I made.  Almonds, dark chocolate, and raisins. . . I didn’t have my camera with me, so no photo 😦

After the hike we went out for hamburgers. Wild Willy’s is a hamburger place in Watertown. Ben and I drive by it a lot on our way to Target or other places. In two years, we have never stopped to check it out. The other weekend we saw Wild Willy’s on Phantom Gourmet… and after the hike, I really needed a hamburger! I had not had red meat in over a month… and every so often my body tells me that it needs red meat.

Here is the burger I ordered on Sunday afternoon:

This is the “Willy” Burger… a.k.a. the classic American burger with lettuce, tomato, American cheese, pickles, ketchup and mustard.  These burgers were large and good.

For dinner I decided to have some carbs… pasta, with garlic and a tad bit of olive oil. I added a little bit of basic tomato sauce (low sodium) and turkey meat balls.

The pasta really hit the spot tonight!

I am really hoping that spring is on it’s way. On Sunday afternoon Ben and I went out for a walk to CVS…. and guess what!? There were snow flurries coming down in our neighborhood…. what the heck is going on!? I really need some spring weather! I’ll keep hoping that the warmer weather is on its way.

I hope ya’ll had a great weekend too and that everyone has a good start to their work week. See you soon! 🙂
