Hey there! I’m Jess, sometimes I blog at dearhealthyness, other times I’m running like a crazy with no time. This week I was running, and not blogging I wanted to write but I didn’t have much time. Today I’m finally back, and hoping for normal/everyday posts (crossing fingers).
Yesterday I did an amazing and extremely fun adventure. I went with my sister’s mother in law, and a bunch of other people, to hike the mountains. We hike for about seven hours, and it was an unforgettable experience. I was up at 5:00 a.m., since I have to travel to her place, plus eat breakfast, prepare my things, blah blah.
The sky was gorgeous, but the weather forecast mentioned a rainy day. At the moment it didn’t matter, and though it rained, it was cold at the top (we were extremely wet), it was worth it. The views of the Caribbean Sea, the valleys of the town, the amazing smell of nature, fresh berries along the way, pure water, and the simplicity of nature made it an incredible experience.
Not only it was an amazing/unique/lifetime experience, but a hardcore (in a good way) kind of adventure. Lots (and I mean LOTS) of steep hills, my legs were burning, and my heart pumping hard! We also found our route was full of mud (thanks rain), but it didn’t stopped us, it just got us dirty The fun part after reaching the top? Well, you have to go down, which means I fell a couple of times before I decided to sit and use my glutes as legs You got to do what you got to do right? Surviving the mountains.
We found two dogs that did the hike with us, and one beautiful peacock! No more
talking writing, enjoy the pictures
- The little puppy was so tired at the end, that he needed to be carried.
- I think that at least 97% of the group fell at least once.
- I lost my pants (too much mud)
- We got lost in the mountains (thank God we found the route again)
- The group was really diverse (kids, teenagers, adults, elderly)
Most of the group did the hike with a special purpose, and though at the beginning I wasn’t thinking in one, I found it while doing it.
I’m glad, and thankful with God that I made it. I found this to be a reason to #fallinlovewithmyself (check out The Blonde Vegan challenge)Why? Because I’m proud that I’m strong enough to do this type of adventures without calling an ambulance. I’ve reached a point in my life where I’m able to do things I wouldn’t do if I were friend with Ana. I’m stronger and healthier, and thanks to it I can do these adventures, over and over again.
Now I’m leaving, Good Friday has a special meaning for me, and I’m spending the day with my family.
Have a beautiful Friday!!
PS, since it is Friday, this is definitively my FAVORITE of the week! Thank you Heather!
Have you ever go hiking in the mountains? Any good story?
