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.

Thanks for commenting on my blog and sharing such personal information. I have always been conscious about what and even how I eat because my parents put so much emphasis on it growing up - even now at age 51 they lecture me and make comments about what my husband and I eat! My dad is overweight and acts like he eats healthy all the time. I think the humor in him lecturing everyone else gets me through, but it will always sting. My mom hardly eats anything - always gravitates around 100 lbs and is constantly complimented on her weight. But, I do not want to live on leaves!! And I told her my son thinks she has an eating disorder. She is hyper-focused on her diet.We never had sweets in the house, etc. I don't think that was good either, so I always had chips, and cookies and chocolates out. My kids didn't eat a lot of them - but, they were always there - everything in moderation!! My skinny son eats an entire bag of potato chips everyday - his metabolism is real fast now and he needs the calories. My mom and dad say he shouldn't be eating it - they just don't get it!!

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I did enjoy the day but the following morning I could barely walk first thing in the morning. The upshot is that I will need to go back to the podiatrist and get inserts made for my shoes because I really can not continue like this. DH and I want to visit the Grand Canyon next year and I want to be able to enjoy the trip. Happy hiking!
