Reminiscing on early wake-ups to beautiful sunrises 🌅 We’d jump on our bikes in the brisk morning air with sleepy eyes & snuggle up until the pink orb showed itself over the horizon. The simple things that make this life so special ❤️
Porque si avanzamos juntos....llegaremos más lejos🤗
Carrerón en Perín, el año pasado me quedé con las ganas y este no podía fallar a la cita de la @burrotrail !! Verdadero festival de colinas, subidas entretenidas y amigos que aman la montaña!! 16km 700mts+, carrerita corta que me sorprendió aún más por lo "rápida" que me salió 😜 2h06'!! Y sí, eso para mí es muy rápido en Trail 😂😂😂
Start your day with a smile😊
Yes I’m morning person, always have been and probably always will be. This doesn’t always compliment the fact that my husband is not🙄😬 but we make it work...all ask for is at least a smile in the morning!
Are you a morning person? 🌞
At last we made it up to Elfin Lakes in summertime ⛰
We had been up here twice before, but always in winter, when these beautiful lakes and meadows are buried under 10+ feet of snow. It was a whole lot easier hiking up than snowshoeing up with a 40 pound pack on that’s for sure! 🌨
I was amazed that the lakes are not glacier fed like I thought (in winter they are an amazing blue) but rather just slightly cold mountain lakes. All 3 of us went swimming, including little 18 month old David. .
We are planning on coming back in February for my birthday weekend, when it will once again be covered in snow, and camping out. ⛺️
One thing I absolutely love is my gratitude journal 📓 I don’t know how much you have looked into gratitude but it is powerful way to change your thought patterns and bring more positivity into your life.
Something I was taught by my mentor was to write down 3 NEW things every day that you are grateful for - and WHY. Well this book as 3 spots for that exact thing!!! It is crazy how this will compound and help change your mind!!! It is important to add the WHY part in because it makes you dig a little deeper!!! That is where the benefits of gratitude come in 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 For example...I’m not just grateful for my amazing
Kids!!! It wasn’t easy getting them all to here but now we get to laugh and make memories together!! We get to have dance parties too 😂💃🕺🏼I mean they are what completes me!!! 💚💙💚 I am Absolutely grateful I said yes to this business and not just because of income that can be made but because of the incredible friendships I have made and brought myself out of a dark depression!! 💗
In studies it shows the results were dramatically different for those who listed what they were grateful for and why!! The people were happier, more optimistic, less depressed, less stressed.
Is this something you would start doing knowing
It could change your life??! I put mine with my coffee mug and first thing I do that every morning. It just takes a few Minutes!! 🤔
Gratitude is something that has changed my mindset and made me more appreciative of more things in my life!!! Who’s going to start working this into your morning??
I forgot to set my alarm last night and woke a little later than I planned. 🤷🏻♀️ I still got up and had a great vacay workout this morning! I didn’t want to travel with my weights and I brought my resistance band with me instead. Yesterday it was a little bit of a challenge to use but today I think I finally figured out a better way to utilize them for a more effective workout and I’m not disappointed! Now while the rest of the fam is still sleeping I’m gonna have my post workout drink on the balcony, listen to the ocean, and do a little coach work by inviting new friends to my upcoming online health group! 🙌🏼 #beachlife#vacationmode#vacationworkout#tybeeisland#tybeetime

Mountains are like going home to me. My means of detachment from the urgencies of daily life and days that become rote, and dull me, and threaten my identity. They are my escape from a world of small lusts and deceitful trivialities. With every big hike, I emerge a little more whole. Parts of me that are broken are stitched back together. I discover a larger, calmer self-identity, a renewed sense of belonging. It’s an experience steeped with mystery, and awe. I become intimate with the antiquity of the earth, and its slow, almost uninterrupted process of life. Life that transcends individual mortality. —
Last month, I hiked my first 14er (14K elevation), and there I found mountain goats braving alike mountain peaks above the tree line, and mountain storms. For a moment, I was ashamed before their courage. Last winter, I got adult onset-asthma. Hiking with this “new normal” at that elevation was needless to say, brutal. Physical limitation is such an unapologetic discriminator. It asks what is relevant right now, gears us up to notice only that, and if left unchecked— can inflict deep wounds in the fabric of a person. I remember vividly the first time I struggled to breathe. I was devastated. I caught up to my brother after the 1st mile and broke down. “I love hiking. What am I going to do?!!” He hugged me and reminded me of our sibling motto: “We’re not problem people, we’re solution people, remember? This is your new normal. Learn to work WITH it.” Sometimes, that’s all you need. A reminder of how powerful we truly are. Determined, I took my time hiking up with my inhaler on-the-ready, and made it to the top (hell YES!). Yea I got my 1st full asthma attack then. Yea it was fucking terrifying! But I immersed in the flow of a moment that was (still is) literally wonderful — the kind of unencumbered first feeling of...falling in love. I emerged euphoric painted to the bone by the sun, washed clean by the rain. I emerged with renewed hope and I got back out in the mountains again last weekend to solo hike. ☝🏽 And God, did it feel empowering to get to the top. Again. #FuckAsthma
