HIKING IN VERMONT
I want to show you a video I threw together yesterday of the hike we went on Tuesday. I’ve gone on a lot of hikes since I’ve been here and this is just one of them, but it turned into a pretty cool one where I was the only one to make it to the top, despite rain, falling, and almost running to get there in time. So watch the video and enjoy. If you ever want to go hiking with me I’d love to go, just remember I talk a lot and make funny noises while hiking.
OOH, MY ACHING BODY
My arms are sooo sore. They’ve been sore all week and as much stretching as I do I haven’t been able to fix them. It all started on Tuesday when I went to kickboxing class and decided to punch as hard as I could. It was an awesome workout but left my arms pretty tired and sore. The next day was upper body resistance training so that made my arms even more sore! Thankfully I had a day of rest on Thursday but it didn’t help because Friday was “advanced” upper body resistance training, which is more reps and different exercises. Needless to say, my muscles are fatigued. They are happy it is the weekend and so am I. Rest time! Maybe by the time I leave Green Mountain I will have some upper body strength. That is one thing I’ve never been able to get much of on my own. I want to be strong!!
HEALTHY LIVING BLOGGING
I’ve decided a few things about blogging lately. First, I’m going to blog less. After blogging almost every day since I’ve been at Green Mountain I’ve gotten tired of it. I realized that sometimes I put blogging before other things and allowed the need to write about my day to stress me out. I’m not exactly supposed to be stressing out over things while I’m here. So, I’m cutting back to every other day or whenever I want. I hopefully will have more time to think about what I want to write and share instead of just throwing stuff up because I feel like I have to. Less of me is more of me. Hehe, that could go for my weight loss journey as well.
Also, I want to keep posting my food pics and my exercise but since I’m not going to post every day and I still want to track that every day I need to find a different solution. I thought about doing it on a blogger blog or even a tumblr but I’m not sure. Ideally I would like to somehow do it on my own site, but I’m a bit technically challenged on things like this, so I am open to suggestions on what I could do.
Do you like hiking? Where is the best place you have gone hiking? I’ve always been a fan of hiking but the best trails I’ve been on have been here in Vermont. It’s great!
