Come hike with me!

In 2009 I lost 50 pounds...and found 40 of them. I came back in January 2014 with a goal. Exercise 10 mins a day. I started with that and slowly incorporated hiking. I love hiking and have had the opportunity to explore many places around the world but there was one hike that I had never done and along with my husband we set our goal to do the Grouse Grind, lovingly referred to as "Natures Stair Master", this summer.

On August 16, 2014 I reach a 70 pound weight loss and finished the Grind with my amazing husband by my side. My goal. Run a Spartan Race. In September 2015 I finished my first Spartan, 7.5K up the side of a ski hill with 20 obstacles. I can't wait to do another one! Lately I've taken up rock climbing. I love what losing weight has brought to my life, I can't imagine ever wanting to give this up.

Fitness Minutes: 48,515

My Goals:
To not let my weight stop me from enjoying adventure. I love hiking and nature and want to get back into exploring.



My Program:
Meal planning.

Focus on cooking with fresh herbs from the garden and veggies from the farmers markets. No more pre-packaged quick meals.

Adding exercise and being accountable for the good and the bad.

Other Information:
What started with a commitment to 10 mins a day of exercise has lead to 5K races, a Spartan race and now rock climbing. I never made any huge changes, but keep evolving. I'm excited to see where I go next!

I came across your page and found it so motivating! I love hiking! I've always wanted to try rock climbing, but it's one of those things that I thought I should wait to do until I'm in shape. But maybe I'll give it a try. I added you as a friend and subscribed to your blog so I can keep up with your adventures.

Was listening to an audio book on running/training. He mentions several times that the most fit athletes in the work are climbers. I thought of YOU :)
