Life is interesting...

I have to say that I have been blessed with an amazing life. Really, it is amazing. I am so thankful for everything that has been given to me especially for my parents. I just found out that my dad, who is 74 has prostate cancer. They've known for about a month and half and dad is undergoing radiation tx right now. So if you can, even you don't necessarily care for me, send out positive thoughts to my dad. He's a terrific man, hard working, honest, caring, and considerate. He is so positive right now. I'm truly amazed by his strength and character. He's the best.

Loving this..

We are having an AMAZING trip. We just got out of the backcountry in Rocky Mountain National Park. I burned 7000 calories in the past two days and I am not sore! Thank God for our trainers or we would have been dying. We made it up to Boulder Field below the Keyhole, which is a huge success.

We are loving the trip so far. Today we are hitting the breweries in Colorado. Chris is in heaven. We were able to hit Brekenridge and Tommyknocker. We were going to hit Flying Dog but they moved and another was closed. We have to get those calories back that we burned :)

Lots of fun!

Okay... No offense if I have any Nebraska readers but omg Nebraska is the worst state. Driving through it takes forever. We were trucking through there and I got pulled over fo doing 5 mph over. Luckily I got off with a warning. I was rush to get to my favorite store Sierra Trading Post before it closed. So I learned my lesson no speeding. We made it to Fort Collins, Colorado and what a town. It's an amazing town. Lots of fun...2 breweries and great night life. So far, this trip is wonderful. We're going to hit Rocky National State Park today and I can't wait until we get out on the trail!

Traveling and eating healthy...

One thing about travelling is the challenge of eating healthy. It's almost like you just want to go with the notion of " hey I'm on vacation who cares about eating?". Yeah, it's good to indulge some but you have to pay the price when you get home. Plus eating out gets really boring after a while. What we have been doing the last few years is that we pack breakfast, lunch is usually a sandwich and fruit, and dinner can be a stop at a grocery store or out but at least it's planned. Having a plan is good :)
