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.

Thank you for sharing on my blog! I really appreciate your support. The Xanax (full tablet) really kept me groggy until about noon the day after I took it. I felt very tired and weak (not good for a morning workout). I sent an email to my doctor to see if he would recommend another medication (or I guess half a tablet might work). Thanks again for posting to my blog!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've been surprised at how full this zone diet has been keeping me. I already ate a lot of fruits and veggies and was gluten free so it wasn't that much of a change for me.

Hello dear friend of mine! Thanks so much for commenting on my last blog! I'm always heartened with your wise comments and encouragement...that's the beauty of Sparkpeople even beyond all of the helpful dietary and exercise advise....it's the friendship factor that drives the human spirit! emoticon

Interesting that you would mention the Going to the Sun Highway... we drove it after we left Calgary and dropped down into Montana (an absolutely beautiful state, and I want to go back). There was a ski operation open at the top, and we drive between snow piles at least 20' high. People were getting out of their cars, in shorts, to have their pictures taken by the snow. Waterfalls everywhere, including one which we drove under.

We had lunch in Cooke City, completely cut off from the East during the winter, and bought souvenirs at the general store. Heard the story of a forest fire which threatened the town, but people refused to leave and successfully saved the buildings.

I hope you get back to do the highway. It's well worth the trip. We went south from there and came back across the Bear Tooth Pass, which was also spectacular.

Hope you had a great week,
hugs, Gail
