Last Saturday we did some easy hiking at Aldergrove Lake Regional Park. There are a few trails so you can do a short hike or join up with other trails to make it a bit longer. There were some slight inclines but it is more of a walk than a hike.
Scott was fighting a bit of a cold so we wanted to take it easy but still get some outdoor time and movement in. I had never been to this spot before. It was a lovely spot for a walk without having to drive too far (Scott lives in Surrey).
I got a Fitbit Flex a few days ago, and so far I am loving it! It’s definitely helping me be more aware of how much activity I’m getting in during my work days, and motivates me to do things like get off the bus a stop early. I’ll post more about it once I’ve had it for a while.
I should say that I realize how lucky I am to live somewhere where I can be outside in January dressed like I am in the picture above – warm walking boots, thick leggings, a long sleeved base layer and a light jacket. I started with a toque and gloves as well, but shed them pretty soon after going up a couple of hills.
I hope you are all doing well and getting outside when you can despite winter temperatures!
