Four Month Challenge

So....As I am leaving on Sunday for four months at Kennicott Glacier Lodge I wanted to wish you all a wonderful summer and a happy farewell for now.


I really don't expect to have any internet connection during my time at Kennicott and for SURE will not have a scale to keep track of progress etc.....So......As a result I decided to go on a four month challenge.....

Here's how it's gonna work. In between work hours I am committing myself to packing (hiking with between 20-40 lb backpack) hiking, walking, and running and at night I will do abs and yoga to relax. Due to the type of food available to us there I am also planning to go on an all vegetarian diet again.

We will see how my body has improved - hopefully - and whether or not I'm ready to physically handle the challenge of the long hikes in New Zealand when we leave in September!!! Here's hoping....

This past year has been HUGE for me as far as changing "on the inside" and I totally look at myself through different eyes now.....The completion of this whole journey though is to also have my outward body transformed into a healthier version of me!(The physical change has not yet happened) It's my goal and plan to really focus on getting into great physical condition while I'm away for four months - what better time to really focus on myself and get where I need to be!?

Kennicott, here I come....

I saw your hiking picture on your other blog and I think you look really really fantastic! You look so fit and trim! I think you're an amazingly beautiful person inside and out!

I can't wait to hear how your 4-month challenge goes! Good luck and have LOTS of fun!

Love you!
