Climbing those hills!
Wednesday, April 03, 2013
It was another fun afternoon in the beautiful hills of Marin, California. This time we hiked up to a waterfall, not a huge one, but the walk was uphill and my legs and heart are used to the flat country of Holland. So I had to stop a few times to catch my breath. It was worth it and it just felt so good getting there and sitting on a rock, watching the water cascade down. Next time I am taking my granddaughters with us! They have spring break next week, I'm really looking forward to spending more time with them; at the moment it's school and homework.
After our hike, my stepdaughter and I started lifting arm weights under the guidance of one of the guys in the family who is a body builder. He almost burst out laughing when I pulled out the 3 and 5 pound weights but a girl has to start somewhere! To his credit, once he got over his amusement, he took his time and showed us exactly what to do. It's kind of fun having a live- in trainer!
So I am enjoying myself, am very active and am losing weight. All the things I was worried about at home have not happened, in fact I am way more active here than in Holland. It's something about those California hills and sunshine that beckon I guess.
Hope everyone is having a good week!
