Motivation Monday - Hiking
|Medicine Bow Peak 7/20/13|
Friday night, we left the baby with Grandma for a slumber party (my first time ever leaving him over night!) and headed to the Snowy Mountain Range. We backpacked in over 3 miles over hills, boulders and creeks before camping for the night.
We got up in the morning and did a little fishing before packing up to head back out.
The scenery was absolutely gorgeous. A 3 mile hike (each way) is such a great workout! Especially when you're carrying a 20+ lb bag on your back. The best part, I don't even feel like it is a workout because I enjoy it so much.

I've been in a "slump" in various parts of my life the past several weeks. Due in part to this plateau and other happenings. This weekend away was just what I was needing. As we were hiking in Friday night, I found myself reflecting on how far I've actually come instead of how far I still needed to go. There is no way I could have made that hike 3-4 months ago. Heck, I probably couldn't have made it a month ago.
For so long I've focused on everyone else, and lost myself a long the way as I mention here. I was once again reminded of the things I love and my passions which was an amazing feeling. I'm starting the week feeling great and ready to bust through this plateau.
