2021 Vacation · Lifestyle

Hiking Palooza!

Hello everyone and welcome back to another blog post on ~Foodie with a Passion~! Happy Thursday and we’re almost to the weekend. Today’s post is wrapping up the 2021 vacation and boy, I definitely need a vacation from the vacation. But before we get started, remember to click subscribe so you don’t miss another Foodie Fun 🤩

So today’s post is more of a fitness post rather than food because we hiked so many places over the course of 3 days. Hiking is really great on the joints because you’re walking, which is relatively low impact. And with elevation or hills, you can get your heart rate up and strengthen your blood vessels as well.

We did pretty much the whole circle around Olympic National Park.

As you can tell from the screenshots on my Fitbit app, I got so many steps in while hiking. My blood sugar did not want to cooperate aka low blood sugars. If anyone is diabetic like me, even if your sugar is slightly high before the hike, I recommend eating like a protein bar so it lasts you. Always keep some sort of snack for the duration of hiking and then check your number after the hike. For heavy duty exercise like this, your blood sugar might continue dropping as a delayed effect so closely monitor it for the next 24 hrs.

And there you have it! For those of you who have a wearable device, let me know in the comments below what is the highest number of steps you registered and what you did to get that high. I can tell you that I hit 30,000 steps on a day I went to Disneyland 😂 Have a great rest of your week and until then…signing off!
