Alihikes getting fit and having fun

REALLY excited about Spark and my Spark teams. I'm in my early 60s and work long hours at a stressful job, so working out and eating healthy are challenges for me sometimes. I LOVE hiking, backpacking, cross country skiing, snow shoes, and kayaking. I want to get more fit to enjoy these activities with my friends, and to have more energy (and not burn out!) on my job.

Hi, Alison, I'm jealous! Still waiting to get enough snow in the Tahoe area to xcountry ski on! Wondered if you heard of these guys in your neighborhood right now, doing the PCT in winter - http://www.shawnforry.com/Margin_Walker...

Yes, it's definitely a scarey thing to happen, and thank God she's alright, it could have been a lot worse.

Thank you for your sentiments, I really loved them; have a beautiful day! emoticon

Thanks for the comment on my blog. What my problem is, I have a recipe (for example) for homemade wild rice that is similar to rice-a-roni. But it's broken up so that it gives you the bulk recipe for the seasonings, and then the recipe for the actual wild rice (which is a serving of the seasonings and then rice). Because of how that's set up, I'm not sure how to enter it.
I'm having the similar issue with bulk pancake/waffle mix, and things like that.
