What a 10-minute challenge can do
Tuesday, July 13, 2010      10 comments

I joined the SP 10-minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge. The reason is that my greatest challenge is doing some physical activity when I'm not hiking or walking with my sister. I can go from climbing Mount Orford one day to the activity level ... Read more
Bounce back ability

I usually blog about my hikes, but I haven't been hiking lately because different circumstances have made it unfeasible. Sure am looking forward to getting back to it! I really like the short, motivating (free) emails I receive from brightm... Read more
I climbed Mount Orford today!
Friday, June 25, 2010      9 comments

I really needed encouragement, but I sure wasn't expecting anything as awesome as climbing up Mount Orford! I've gained 3 lbs this week, in spite of eating well and getting a lot of physical activity. I was so discouraged! When my sister suggest... Read more

Today was hot and humid so we went for a walk by Lake Memphremagog hoping there'd be a cool breeze. There wasn't. ... Read more
Hike on Mount Orford
Monday, June 21, 2010      4 comments

Today was an incredibly beautiful day with ideal weather. My walking/hiking buddy (a.k.a. "Jillian Michaels") told me that I could now walk reasonably long distances, and that now I was being "promoted". Promoted? Walking reasonably long distanc... Read more
Back to my sister's mountain
Saturday, June 19, 2010      3 comments

After yesterday's demanding hike (for me anyway), we decided we wanted a less challenging hike today. So, we headed back to the mountain my sister hiked on for so many years. After a very enjoyable walk, I still have energy left to tackle some ... Read more
Hike to Three-Lake Mount
Friday, June 18, 2010      3 comments

We headed for Three-Lake Mount this afternoon. It has 4 or 5 beautiful viewpoints. We were very much hoping to get to the first viewpoint, but I'm just not fit enough to climb the very steep rock incline. I'm carrying too much excess weight. Wha... Read more
A fulfilling Thursday
Thursday, June 17, 2010      6 comments

After a rather demanding morning at work, I didn't really feel like going for a walk. But I didn't want to disappoint my walking buddy and knew that once I got out there, I would not regret my choice. We were limited in where we could walk, beca... Read more
The hike that almost wasn't
Tuesday, June 15, 2010      6 comments

We had planned to hike up to the first viewpoint on Mount Chauve this afternoon. The weather was just perfect, and it was the first time this year we were attempting this type of climb. But it wasn't to be. We had only hiked up a short distance ... Read more
A blessed day
Sunday, June 13, 2010      6 comments

After being blessed spiritually by this morning's sermon at church, I was blessed physically by my afternoon walk. Today, my sister and I headed out to the André Nadeau Recreation Centre. It's within minutes from where we live, but we'd never be... Read more
Today's walk on the Cherry Tree Swamp trail
Saturday, June 12, 2010      5 comments

No hiking today. Just a long, pleasant walk on the Cherry Tree Swamp trail. A wooden trail was built over the swamps. The trail continues through the surrounding forest. Next year, they plan to build a multi-million-dollar eco-center there. I wo... Read more

There were dark clouds out and droplets of rain on the windshield as we headed out to Mount Belleview this afternoon. We decided to brave the elements. ... Read more
Caught in the rain
Monday, June 07, 2010      8 comments

We were so glad to be able to hike again after being indoors for two days because of the (much needed) rain. We found a cute little trail at Mount Bellevue that we'd never hiked on before. It's fun because at first we were really sticking to the... Read more
Walk on Mount Belleview and at Blanchard Park
Friday, June 04, 2010      4 comments

The forecast for the weekend is rain, so my sister and I decided to get all the walking in that we could today. First we hiked some trails on Mount Belleview and then went for a leisurely walk at Blanchard Park. I'm kinda sore from all that hiki... Read more
Today's walk in the old Beckett woods
Monday, May 31, 2010      6 comments

I'd been told that there were nice walking paths in the Beckett woods, but I'd never been there. Today, my sister and I decided to go explore those woods. It's a very old forest with a haunting quality about it because of it's age. Old tre... Read more
