I didn't have time to blog last night and just had to share this with all my spark friends! Yesterday it was absolutely gorgeous outside so my fiancé and I decided to go for a bike ride on a bike path. We ended exploring some new sites and rode for a total of 65 minutes. Picture below of us at the end of the trail before we turned around to go back to the truck.
So THEN a friend of mine sent a text asking me to go hiking with her, she didn't want to waste the day. Her and I were able to snowshoe twice when we had our two days of winter a few weeks ago. I was amped up from my bike ride and went directly from the bike trail to the hike trail. What an adventure we got ourselves into!! And I was even able to get my fiancé to join us. Although it was 60+ degrees outside, it was still quiet icy in the woods. I fell several times, beating myself up pretty good. Hurricane Irene really messed with the flow of the river and made it merely impossible to cross it. That didn't stop us!! We straddled a log and scooted to the other side…
I seriously felt like I was a contestant on the Biggest Loser participating in a crazy challenge to keep myself on the ranch! I felt great last night even though during our 2.5 hour adventure through the woods I was quiet frustrated with myself at how out of shape I have let myself get! I was equally disappointed this morning when I weighed myself and still no budge. Ug this is getting old.
I'm going to keep taking it one day at a time! At some point my hard work will HAVE to pay off!
