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 so much for your support on my blog! The physical therapist still hasn't cleared me to do anything high-impact, but he encouraged me to cross-country ski and snowshoe short distances...as long as I was wearing my brace! I'm hoping to be back on the track by the end of the month, so I'm happy to be more mobile and active already!

I hope you've been doing well too. I love the hiking and skiing pictures you've been posting!! :)

I know, it is here, too, unfortunately, some people just refuse to do it. This is the third person I've known who has passed from not using their seatbelt..and drinking.

The first was my aunt..she was an alcoholic, she got into her vehicle in the middle of winter, no coat, took off backing out of the driveway, hit a pole across the road, and passed out, or was knocked out, in the middle of the night. They don't know if she died from injuries, or just froze..but she wasn't found til hours later.

The second was my cousin who was at a bar, and someone was going to drive him home, but he snuck out of the bar, and ended up going off the road, hitting a tree, and died.

And now this. None of them were wearing seatbelts, all of the drinking. It's so sad, and so hard. 2 of them were under 27 years of age.

I hope Dan learns and he doesn't drink and drive, but still, if he learns to wear his seatbelt..that would be wonderful.

Anyway, I'm glad you liked the pictures of the kittens, and have a wonderful day tomorrow. Always remember that smile. emoticon

I found your reference to being in Oregon and wanted to say hello. We are in St. Helens, on the wet side of the Cascades. But as I'm sure you know it has been pretty dry here too. I turned 68 last May and worked at a stressful job until just after my 68th birthday, so I knew very well how difficult your situation is. Please take care of yourself and listen to both your body and your mind to know how long to work. It's different for each of us. It looks as though you have had some wonderful traveling adventures in your life - terrific! Best wishes to you.

He's not doing too bad, I guess, haven't heard much, so when that happens it's always been good in the past.

I hope you have a wonderful day, and always carry that smile with you! emoticon
