I love the holidays, but I hate the holidays. Christmas is my favorite time of year with sparkling lights, snow, happy exclamations as special foods and sweets are presented and consumed with delight, and presents that represent our love for one another. But Christmas makes me so tired, and I don't want to decorate or take down the decorations. I'm happy to eat the food and sweets, and sit in front of my computer and gain weight.
I'm going back to Fitness Ridge in January and I am hauling my husband with me this time. He is in for a major shock when he discovers that he is expected to work out all day without breaks long enough for hime to walk off campus for a smoke.
Here I am almost dead from climbing straight up for nearly an hour. I fell twice and was the last one, but I made it. They called it Saddle because the top of the climb is a saddle between two peaks. It was hard, but totally rewarding.
