I am happy to say that my feet have hit the trails and beaches again.  I find my happy place is along those trails with my headphones taking in everything around me.  I am grabbing my tea first thing and hitting the grasslands….

I am hitting the local boardwalk beaches for some sand between my toes! and working it into date night.



Wednesday I returned to the mountain, Mt. Woodson and it was not easy!  It is 2 miles uphill which adds to the cardio level.  I was determined to take it in……



and I took it further to Potato Chip Rock which I had not been to in all these years…



mind you I don’t have a fear so much of heights but of falling (is that the same?) but I came this far and since I knew no one….I crawled my way and it was not pretty but it was me!



I did it…………and enjoyed my private rock that I have always loved.



Now if only I could figure out how to have Starbucks deliver my tea.  I have found that taking my morning tea on the morning hike is a great motivation to MOVE MY REAR!  The miles are growing and the pounds seem to drop off too.  Over 35 miles this month!


Sure glad I choose to start my day like this.  I find it motivates me for the rest of the day and week.  Push yourself because you never know what you will find along the way!

The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone else too much, and completely forgetting that you are special too.  Yes, nurture others, but don’t forget about yourself.  Happy people know self-love isn’t selfish.  They put their needs first because they see the power of showing up fully for others.  When you take care of yourself, you are better able to help the people you care about.  If you sacrifice all your needs in order to help them, you’re only showing up as a shell of your true self.”
