I’ve gotten really good at making excuses for myself. One of my best excuses for weight-gain, is Date Night. It’s always a great opportunity to lounge and over-consume on calories.
I love date night, but lately I’ve been very aware that a weekly date night can begin to cause a problem with my health and fitness goals.
Making the switch from dinner dates to hiking dates is a win-win situation.
Anyone Can Do It
Our new favorite weekend activity is Date Day.
Hiking has become the perfect activity for our little family on the weekends. I love that hiking is the kind of exercise anyone do, regardless of skill level. It’s all about setting the right pace.
Memories are Created
Hubs and I both get our daily exercise, and at the same time, we are creating memories and giving sweet little Bentley a chance to explore new territory and get out tons of pent-up energy.
It’s a win-win-win situation!
A New Bond Can Be Formed
I’ve always loved to hike. I love the feeling of accomplishment when you reach your destination. Now, more than ever, I love the bonding experience with your hiking partner.
So, try it out this weekend! Grab some water and a first aid kit, and hit the trails with your honey!
