I have always been one that struggles with motivation when it comes to my health.
When it comes to eating, my attitude is very, “Do I eat the entire bowl of chocolate, or only half of the bowl?” haha!
As some of you know, I have tried all sorts of different workouts, but I never stick to them. There is no one to hold me accountable and MAKE me do it.
I will never be one of the many that are a part of the new movement of workout junkees, I hate to workout. HATE it.
Hiking has always been the most enjoyable of the working out tactics that I’ve tried. It’s beautiful, it’s serene, and it’s tranquil. I love it.
Many of you know that I recently decided to hire my good friend, Jeanne, as my personal trainer to help push me through this new goal to lose weight and to feel healthier!
Jeanne gave me a goal of 6 miles per week to hike, thank god I’m being forced to get back into what I really do enjoy, hiking!
As my sister and I hiked today, I couldn’t help but feel an overwhelming amount of support and encouragement from the other hikers and bikers. Everyone says, “good morning” or “keep it up!”, and there are a select few who push you to go on with, “good job ladies, go go go, you can do it!”
Keep in mind, I do not know ANY of these people, it’s just a wonderful hiking community for like minded individuals.
I love where I live, I love the people, and most of all i love to encouragement from others, it’s EXACTLY what I needed.
I can’t wait to see where this journey takes me.
