WHAT....another personal blog on my fitness website? but here is what I think.... fitness is personal and it is a part of my healthy balanced life.... so I am going to share all of it with you! I mean first of I guess I have to say...... I can't believe THIS is my life! ahh! I never knew such a healthy balance could really exist...mentally and physically it is so hard to obtain both! That is one of the many reasons I am soo happy!
I really do feel like it is all a dream.
Adventuring! Working! Sharing! Learning! I am so excited!
I want to share all of it! with everyone!
Leaving felt like a blur! So many mixed emotions. It was nice to finally hit the road! but I really am going to miss everyone. Good thing I get to be with two of my best friends the whole way! (you know, Kyle and Wall-E of course)
above we a sporting our super excited and trying not to cry faces!
We made it a whole hour and a half before we stopped!
This is one lesson I continue to learn and relearn in life... It is also part if what I feel is so healthy about Kyle and My journey together, I feel like when one of us forgets this little lesson the other helps us remember!
You should ALWAYS take the time to ENJOY THE MOMENT
There is this awesome little gift shop in the middle of NOWHERE between Lancaster and Hesperia... we probably spent a good 45 mins there and ended up with a Date Shake mmmmm. Wall-E also tried to attack the status of tigers that are in the back parking... we commend him for his guard dog instincts but fear he may need his eyes checked. None the less these little moments are what make this such an awesome adventure
We had an awesome lunch at the Mad Greek (I think that is what it was called) anyway we spent the ride there and after remembering all of our awesome friendships and adventures in Ventura.
I was once given advice to help build relationships and keep them strong is to take a regular step back and recall the good times together. Kyle and I do this often but this time was really special so we also started talking about the kind of memories we want to have on our adventure. Even good relationships, be it family, friend, or super amazing boyfriend/adventure buddy, can benefit from regular healthy happy conversation. Even the easy stuff takes maintenance.
Next Stop NAVADA
Unfortunately LUCK was not on our side... first we stopped at state line to ride the roller coaster.... but it was closed.... then we found out it was flash floods in Utah so no Zion that night.... then we went to see the RIO sky show, Canceled.... lastly lets just say Im not a good gambler.... none the less we had a blast! and hit the road for a few more hours...
If there is one thing I have learned in life that is better then your own birthday it is making the people you love know how special their birthday is to you! I mean think about it... It is like the best day of the year! Without it you wouldn't have them and they are like a present every single day!.... Okay, maybe I am getting a little cheesy... but thats just who I am... anyway the rest of the best day of the year was spend at:
THE GRAND CANYON
We decided to upgrade our park pass to an 1 year all access to any national park! Hence Kyle's super excited face! Now for the rest of the trip we will try to see as many places as possible! We had so much fun exploring... unfortunately so much fun we didn't take many pictures on my cell phone... oh well, we have the memories! On trips like this I try to
stop and make a mental picture or memory
so that I can keep it with me forever. Did I mention it was FREEZING! Hiking around was our workout for the day and by the time we left we were exhausted and had a few hours of driving ahead of us. Wall-E liked the park too and discovered he may have some mountain goat ancestry! It was hard work walking around at such high elevation!
I wish I could say our luck is due to spontaneity but I have to admit sometimes we cut it pretty close. I also know for sure that I am lucky to have found someone as flexible and easygoing as me. I think most other people I would drive insane. But that is what works with us and I always think everyone should be their true selves with whoever they are with. I feel so lucky to be on the biggest adventure of my life with someone who loves me for me.... and for my Wall-E Pup too!
