Happy to report that I have moved a minimum of 30 minutes every day since September 1, 2019, which will be 145 days after my workout today. This started as a September challenge from a high school classmate on Facebook and I haven't stopped. Some days are slow walks with the family around our beautiful neighborhood, other days I lift weights, we bought an elliptical over the holidays so I have mixed that in, and most recently gotten back into running. What started as something I had to do is now what I look forward to and do not want to skip. I always always feel better after I have moved my body.
I am feeling great and love that I have made fitness a priority in my life. I lost the extra weight I was carrying, still more to go and I have hit a plateau but I am not gaining and that is a WIN! I love that we have inspired our kids to move as well, with family walks a few nights a week.
My happy place is on a trail in the mountains, we have explored a few trails in our local area and plan to do some overnight hiking this summer on portions of the Pacific Crest Trail, I got addicted to watching through hiking the PCT, CDT and ADT on You Tube :) Thankfully Muscle Man loves to hike too so we make good trail partners. I live in the shadow of Mount Rainier so I am blessed with miles of trails to explore!
