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.

Much thanks to you for commenting on my blog on the 16th about clothes shopping. I relate to your frustrations whole-heartedly and had a good chuckle about your statement of bigger women being un-employed and have no life.... it most certainly feels that way sometimes. Glad I'm not alone in the struggle... hopefully we won't be in it for much longer.

Keep on keepin' on,

Yay...we made it back in one piece! What an adventure...the second half of the vacation MORE than made up for the first part. I'm getting back into the swing of things and am very happy I only gained 3 pounds in the 3 weeks of eating anything and everything that appealed to me. It's all the walking that saved me. Luckily our hotel was usually 3 miles from the center of things so it was a guaranteed walk of 6 miles per day and then all of the walking in between. Whew...walking saved me! emoticon emoticon

I know, isn't it wonderful to have people doing this challenge, and thank you for the compliment. I enjoyed doing it, and I hope someone does come back and say "hey, I got nothing out of it", because I added that if they don't, then they, in turn, have to donate to the accessible playground I'm President of, while I will donate to ALS, so it's a win-win situation.

Have a wonderful day. emoticon

Just wanted to thank you for commenting on my blog. Body image will probably always be a work in progress for me, but I'm hoping to make it less so for my son.

Absolutely, it's better to call and say "hey, I can't" then to not call at all. I won't ever use these pool people again, they are so unreliable, it's not funny. And i won't recommend them, I don't care what they've done to help the playground, if they can't do good work, they aren't worth it.

I hope you have a wonderful day, and thank you, you made me feel better. emoticon
