Hike more, worry less. ✌💙

Headed into the weekend like...👱🏻‍♀️🥾
Before:⁣ Insecure.⁣ Worried constantly.⁣ Trying to figure out who I was.⁣ Usettled.⁣ Happy some days, crying all day the next.⁣ Unsure. ⁣ Partier. ⁣ Hated the body I was in.⁣ Anxious. ⁣ Over exercising.⁣ Calorie restricting.⁣ Telling myself if I just kept good grades, I was succeeding.⁣ Body-basher. ⁣ Feeling stuck.⁣ ⁣ I wanted more and wanted to feel better but I really felt like I'd always feel this way. I wasn't OK with it, but didn't know how to fix it. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Currently:⁣ I'm a believer.⁣ I'm growing in confidence. ⁣ I have a more positive mindset. ⁣ I'm learning to fail forward and move past fear.⁣ I'm crushing goals and learning from the un-crushed ones.⁣ I dream bigger.⁣ Staying stuck isn't an option. ⁣ I purposely do and seek things daily that fill my heart up. ⁣ I connect and refuse to try and do everything alone.⁣ I take action.⁣ I love my crew hard.⁣ My mindset had shifted.⁣ My goals of "fit and healthy" extend far beyond chasing skinny. ⁣ I seek motivation and don't just wait for it to show up. ⁣ I share my struggles and turn them into strengths. ⁣ I still like wine and beer but keg stands are a thing of the past;)⁣ ⁣ Future: ⁣ Who knows, but I can't wait to see. ⁣ All I know is that I with each day, all I can do is try to be 1% better than the me I was yesterday. ⁣ ⁣ No better than anyone else, just better than me <3 ⁣ ⁣ There's so much work to do, but man the journey is cool.
Hike 52. Lost, the moment you realize you’ve lost your fav cap 🧢, Wolverines 😢& you think about hiking back two ravines to find it.🤔 Not!

Hallelujah Nevertheless was the song the pain couldn’t destroy. . Open your eyes, look to the skies, We are the children of the promise. Hold to what's real, everything heals, We are the children of the promise. Open your heart, look for the sparks, We are the children of the promise. Love is your place, feel the light on your face, We are the children of the promise. . Hallelujah nevertheless you’re my joy invincible.
With #snowmageddon about to drop a ridiculous amount of snow, I’m dreaming of my beloved Belknap Mountains. The sun on my shoulders, mountain air in my lungs and my legs burning from the climb as I drag my butt to the top, awaiting my views, the feeling of accomplishment and the sweet treat I have hidden in my bag. Til then, I can be found on the treadmill and spinning bike, wishing it was summer year round in northern New England ⛰🚴🏻‍♀️🏃‍♀️🧘‍♀️#hike #hikerchick #GetOutside #HikeNH #summerdreaming #favoriteplaces
We had an awesome night at @griffinclaw with @moosejawmadness and the #mjtrailerthing ! Learned that we can make a pretty spot on Osprey impression and snagged some free @ospreypacks gear and some free beer! Love that we have such an awesome outdoor store so close to us and an kickass brewery, just a few of our favorite things! #moosejaw #moosejawmadness #moosejawmountaineering #osprey #ospreybackpack #ospreypacks #griffinclaw #griffinclawbrewingcompany #griffinclawbrewing #birmingham #puremichigan #optoutside #backpacking #outdoors #thegreatoutdoors #greatlakesstateofmind #michigan #outdoorsy #hikerchick #couplesthathike
This tree was literally growing out the middle of a rock and because of its growth cracked the rock in two! I hope that under pressure i am like this tree and better my surroundings. #arizonalife #hikeaztrails #hikearizonaitrocks #explorearizona #arizonahiking #azhiking #hikearizona #hikeaz #hikeaz 🌵 #getouside #lovewhereyoulive #hikerchickaz #hikerchick #womenwhohikeaz #amAZingAZ
It’s Friday and my last day in the city of #seattle . Can’t wait to get to the mountains this weekend 🐾🐕 #keepgoing #hikertrash #pnw
In the woods is the only time I feel truly at peace.
Have you found the ultimate place where you feel at home, where you literally feel at peace with everything, where you feel your soul recharge? If you haven't keep searching - because once you do you will never look back. It may be a forest or a beach or a spot by a river? It may be none of those 🤷‍♀️ but for me, it's the mountains and getting my hike on, being out in nature energizes me, clears my mind and excites me. #sunsetlover #naturelover #lovemountains #hikerchick #thisgirlhikes #thisgirlcan #ultimateplace #findyourepic #wanderlust #outdooradventures #adveturetime #atpeace #feedyoursoul #recharge #goodforyoursoul #positivevibes #landscapelovers #instagood #sunsetchasers #skiesofinstagram #getoutside #wanderer #thatview #happyplace #peace #innerpeace #calm #findyourself #beyou #youdoyou
Souper Mom! I love this 60’s vintage mug, large enough for your favorite soup 🍲 This is my rainy weather dinner, a creamy tomato soup with cilantro, and prairie bread with avocado, English cucumber and nutritional yeast- yum! 🥑🥒 #comfortfood #vegancomfortfood #vegan #vegandinner #plantbased #veganuary #vegansofig #healthylifestyle #rainyday #soupermom #vintage #hikerbabes #hiker #hikerchick #avocado #cilantro #nutritionalyeast #cozy #letitrain ☔️

#tbt to the first winter hike of 2017. I need to hike! The #whitemountains are calling!
You know how I talked yesterday about a few things that make me happy when I see them. Well this is another one. Red mountain! Seriously wish I could hike this! It’s so iconic and amazing! #arizonalife #hikeaztrails #hikearizonaitrocks #explorearizona #arizonahiking #azhiking #hikearizona #hikeaz #hikeaz 🌵 #getouside #lovewhereyoulive #hikerchickaz #hikerchick #womenwhohikeaz #amAZingAZ
I can’t stop thinking back to this weekend when I got to play in the snow with 67 of my closest friends. Even though it snowed at least a foot up in the mountains, that didn’t stop us from heading out, dark and early at 6:30 am to conquer the Winter Trifecta! We cut trail, froze fingers/toes, soaked socks, had sore everything. We also laughed until it hurt, took tons of amazing photos and had some serious type 2 fun. Thank you @boulderhikerchicks for helping bring so many wonderful ladies together and making sure we always take it to the next level! And a special thanks to @larsenphotoco for the amazing 1st photo! Other photo credits belong to some amazing ladies whose fingers were less frozen than mine. 😂 #bhcwintertrifecta
Good morning ! A little #waterfallwednesday to start the day 😊 I loved this place so much I booked myself 2 trips there for this year! When I went we didn’t camp out we stayed in the lodge and I really enjoyed that . I didn’t mind the extra hiking for a nice shower at the end of the day . 🤣this place is by far one of the most gorgeous places on the planet . Pictures do not do these gems any justice !i went for four days and we explored all the way to Beaver Falls . I’m hoping to make it to the confluence the next time . The climb down Mooney falls was terrifying ( my last photo🤣🤣🤣) but I had a great group of people who encouraged me a long the way . It’s one of my favorite things about the hiking community .we are mostly all so friendly and encouraging to one another ! #mooneyfalls #havasupai #conquerfear #hikerbabe #hikerbabes #hikerchick #girlswhohike #plussizehiker
Last week Mike said to me: You know that face you like to make? It’s not my favorite. It’s not really cute. It looks like an angry chimpanzee smile. 😏 You wanna know how many times I’ve spontaneously and randomly busted out that smile since? About a gazillion! 😂😂😂 This is the #angrychimpanzee smile in all its glory! You can’t tell me it’s not #magical . It even made its own rainbow 🌈, it’s so #winning 😂 #hikerchick #hikehawaii #oahuhikes #adventuring #outdooradventures #explore #carpediem #smilingismyfavorite
This crazy rain makes me miss #Mexico so much #takemeback
Good times in Mexico 🇲🇽
Sometimes, I really am just left without words. Sometimes it’s because of joy, all I can do is smile. Sometimes because of peace, all I can do is breath deeply. Sometimes I’m just too sad to speak.

The grass is always greener on the other side of a much needed rain storm! 🌧💧☔️ And, really good hiking boots are essential for comfort and endurance when you hit the trail ⛰🧗🏻‍♀️ #kodiakboots #kodiak #hikerchick #hikecalifornia #pct2018 #pct #hikinggear #hike #hiker #idhikethat #hikelikeagirl #hikeitbaby #hikerbabesorg100 #hikersofinstagram #outdoorsy #thegreatoutdoors #johnmuir #sierraclub #hikingislife #oldschool #classic #classicstyle #rain #palmsprings 🙌🏻

I tried to tell him it wasn't THAT bad. But he was spent. 🤣🐕⁣ ⁣ Seriously though, 20 mins flew by! It was hard but fun, just like my mom told me. (She got it done earlier today while I was at work! 💪🙌)⁣ ⁣ I love that I can get home from work (and an outrageous commute bc of 🌧🤦🏼‍♀️) and go from zero motivation to just getting it done and feeling SO freaking gooood after!⁣ ⁣ The accountability of my crew + my momma,⁣ The fact that I have a short but effective workout literally at my finger tips, a body that I'm grateful I can move and my all natural pre-workout, and a desire to FEEL good, left me with no excuses. 👊⁣ ⁣ Nothing changes if nothing changes.⁣ ⁣ Complaining and not putting in the work can't be an option. ❌⁣
Missing the mountains something fierce lately. // (Photo circa the legendary beargrass summer of 2017)
Time to tame the beast❤❄🐶🐾
Soldiers pass in Sedona is a trail that offers so many different cool spots! From thisbtrail you can access the 7 scared pools , devils kitchen ( the largest sinkhole in AZ) Brins Mesa, and of you can find the trail the secret arches . I learned the hard way that this trail doesn’t open until 8 am . I love trails that offers a variety of scenery and this one gives you forest views as well as summit type views ! So many interesting places along this one ! #sedona #hikeaz #hikearizona #hikesedona #guesthost #plussizehiker #hikerchick #hikerbabe #hikerbabephxaz #hikerbabes
Another great hike! 3.19 miles around the reservoir starting at the cemetery. #hike #hikelocal #hikema #ice #reservoir #wachusettreservoir #hikerchick #nature #frozenwater
And we found a little furry buddy on the trail. He was super tiny! And I added a few more pics just for kicks and giggles. #arizonalife #hikeaztrails #hikearizonaitrocks #explorearizona #arizonahiking #azhiking #hikearizona #hikeaz #hikeaz 🌵 #getouside #lovewhereyoulive #hikerchickaz #hikerchick #womenwhohikeaz
There are a few things that no matter when I see them I get excited (I might be a little obsessed) weevers needle is one of them and it was so cool to see it from the back.

One of the most beautiful waterfalls in Ohio. We got stuck in the parking lot because the snow was so deep but once the 4x4 kicked in we got out and decided to take the Jeep for a loop around the lot. The glare on the park rangers face made my day. 😂😂
#Day8 ... “I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.” Psalm 9:1 Today was a great day. Hiking with friends including my best bud here. Hearing from my two oldest kids via text, simultaneously and unsolicited(!) while Mike and I were driving, post hike, to the NorthShore to watch the big waves. And then ending with a movie date night. Thank you, Jesus for all the good gifts packed into one day. ☺️❤️ #inspirefast #prayerandfasting #thankfulheart #myguy ❤️ #adventurebuddy #hikerchick #hikehawaii #hikelife #hikeoahau #explore #explorehawaii #carpediem
It’s almost spring and I am excited - new backpacking adventures and sleeping under the stars can’t come soon enough #keepgoing #hikertrash
Howdy. I have sass and I like climbing shit 🧗‍♀️ . . London Bridge Portsea is composed of sandstone has been formed through the weathering action of thousands of years of wind, rain and waves.  These conditions continue to erode London Bridge, meaning it could only be a matter of time until this Bridge finally falls down . . . . . #londonbridges #naturalbridges #nationalparkgeek #playoutside #outdoorgirls #vagabond #hikerchick #rockon #nevergrowold #climber
10 year challenge. Wow. 10 years ago I was very unhealthy. I spent every weekend in a bar drinking and smoking cigarettes. Everything I did centered around alcohol. Sports games, family parties, birthdays, etc. I was eating crap. I was miserable on the inside. Fast forward to 2019. The changes I’ve made are drastic. Moved to Boulder. Quit smoking cigs about 4 years ago. Quit drinking alcohol 21 months ago. Changed my diet. Started climbing mountains. Honestly, It’s amazing what you can do in 10 years. You have the power to change whenever you want. It’s never ever too late. 🤩🌟💫🤩🌟💫
Life is fragile, folks. No two ways about it. So live it! Do things that scare you, make a stranger's day, be genuine, forgive, be brave, take chances, lead with kindness, and love fiercely. • ❤️🙌🏻 • #liveyourbestlife #livelaughlove #bebrave #journey #sunrise
I committed myself to 6am workouts Monday - Friday!!! This is 100% my CHOICE!Tonight I’m prepping for success 🤸🏼‍♀️ My outfits all laid out AND the most important part is what I’m going to say to myself RIGHT when my alarm goes off ⏰ “I am healthy. I am healed. I am happy. I am grateful for this day. I am grateful for each breath. Get up. The day is yours.” I have conditioned myself by consistently filling myself with affirmations RIGHT when my alarm clock goes off to GET UP🖖🏼 Don’t let snooze be an option. #morningmotivation .. . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #mtnbabes #alpinebabes #womenwhohike #wildernessbabes #outdoorwomen #coloradoinstagram #coloradogirls #womenwhohike #cotopaxi #hikerchick #dreamtrips #sheisnotlost #womenwhoexplore #wearetravelgirls #femmetravel #shetravels #girlsthatwander #youmustsee #wanderlust #werehikers #exploremore #mountainlove #healing #positivevibes #recharge #getuncomfortable
