Alihikes getting fit and having fun

REALLY excited about Spark and my Spark teams. I'm in my early 60s and work long hours at a stressful job, so working out and eating healthy are challenges for me sometimes. I LOVE hiking, backpacking, cross country skiing, snow shoes, and kayaking. I want to get more fit to enjoy these activities with my friends, and to have more energy (and not burn out!) on my job.

DEAR GOD, ENLIGHTEN WHAT'S DARK IN ME... ...

DEAR GOD, ENLIGHTEN WHAT'S DARK IN ME... STRENGTHEN WHAT'S WEAK IN ME... MEND WHAT'S BROKEN IN ME, BIND WHAT'S BRUISED IN ME, HEAL WHAT'S SICK IN ME, AND LASTLY... REVIVE WHATEVER PEACE AND LOVE HAS DIED IN ME

Thank you my good sparkfriend for posting this.

I am putting it on my page so it can guide me.

Enjoyed seeing all the photos on your blogs. I live north of Portland, and have been to a few of the places you've shown! We also have foot surgery in common... I've had several over the past 2 years...mostly back to "normal" now...except for some nerve changes, and still some swelling when I overdo it! As you are, looking forward to "keep on hiking" in my future!! Yellowstone is coming up soon...!

Thank you for your nice comment on my blog. I didn't realize it got that hot in Oregon, it being so far up north and all. I have never experienced 100 yet here in FL...but I think this summer will be the time. We do get 100+ here, but not in our area yet. They say it is going to be the hottest summer yet! emoticon Yes, those indoor exercises sure help. I love my Wii system.. especially for my arms and core and even Balance. Got to keep moving!! emoticon emoticon
Have a good weekend! emoticon

Thanks for stopping by my blog - and good for you for dancing - even with a boot on.
