My Favorite Way to Exercise and Pictures of Our Trip to the Mountains

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

I had planned to post this blog sooner but with summer comes lots of added chores and time gets away from me. I have been on a plateau but finally broke it last week and lost a pound. When I weighed this week I am the same as last week. I am determined not to get discouraged. I know this is a life long journey. I am on a steroid long term and it makes it so easy to gain and so hard to lose but I will succeed!

I am finally posting pictures of our day hiking in the mountains. We will be going back there for a camping trip the end of the month. It is easy to exercise when I am doing something I love!

On our way, leaving the desert and heading to the mountains

Getting close!

We are there!

Not sure what these wildflowers are but they remind me of orchids.

I took tons of pictures so will share more in my next blog. Wishing everyone a happy healthy week!

    Beautiful pictures Martha. It seems like you really enjoyed your getaway.

    I'm so glad you're not getting discouraged and was still able to lose being on a steroid. Just continue to be strong and make good choices...I believe in you and know you will succeed my dear friend.

    Stay encouraged - hugs!!

    Love the scenery Martha. It is just what I like to do as well, get back into nature. Where is this?

    Nice photos! It looks like we'll be hiking in Colorado in a couple weeks. Your pics make me want to go even more.

    emoticon emoticon How very beautiful, Martha - thank you for "taking us all on a vacation" with your pictures! Hiking is my favorite activity these days, too. Do you use poles? I've started bringing along a walking stick to help with balance on the difficult parts - it really helps.

    Beautiful scenery Martha. I think we all exercise easier when it's something we love. If I could have an indoor pool-lightly heated throughout the cold weather I'd swim all year. Of course there are some but not close enough for me to access within my availability time, that is when Erik is being cared for by others.
    It looks like a lovely sight for camping and in the mountains is a good place to be in the summer.
