Last year we were in Colorado and spur of the moment decided we would do the Manitou Incline... Had I known just how challenging it would be, I probably wouldn't have done it. Last year I was doing little to no cardio because #cardioistheworst
. 😂 "I don't hate it. I just don't like it at all and it's terrible." - Michael Scott (does anyone else quote The Office multiple times a day??) ....Anyway, I've started doing a little more cardio here and there, but plan on adding more into my workouts since we plan on doing the Incline again this summer. I'd like to be better prepared this time... IF I can convince myself to do it again that is... 😬
Do you have any goals you want to accomplish this year?

One of my favorite couple’s adventure sessions!!! This secret trailhead in Breckinridge was flooded, so two adventurous couples and I scaled down from the cliffs above to get to these gorgeous waterfalls. It’s always an adventure in Colorado ❤️ ⛰

I’m currently offering a $50 discount on couple’s adventure sessions if you mention this post!
💕 "She finally fell in love with somebody who could handle her fire." - Mark Anthony
💕 This is love. Unconditional, whole hearted, real, complicated, beautiful yet sometimes ugly & authentic true love.
💕 For all those looking for someone special, please don't give up! No matter how tired you are, no matter how much you hurt (& I know that pain is gut wrenching) It is out there, I swear! I count my lucky stars everyday for it, him & us.
💕 Don't change who you are to fit a mold of what is attractive or desirable. The right person will come along at the right time (sometimes it feels like forever, since so many imposters have fooled & hurt you before) BUT the right person will be attracted to exactly who you are deep down in your bones.
💕 It may not appear that I have much in a superficial world, but for him I have a priceless fortune & am forever grateful! 💕✌ 💕✌💕
Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies.
If I had ever found a line of work in which I was entrusted with highly classified information, and I was ever captured by the opposition with the intention of prying said information from my clenched, cracked, tortured lips,
I would die.
Not because I held to any moral code or considered it faithfulness to some arbitrary, patriotic duty, that my conscience demanded that I remain true to whatever vain vow I had recited and burned into my head and heart.
Not because of some blind allegiance to cloth and creed and country, that I would betray myself and my people in the same frightened, frantic, desperate breath.
I would die by my captors' hands because whatever I had to say or share would be too fucking boring. Imagine the disappointment and horror: I am at the mercy of my enemy, beaten and abused and starved to the point of delirious mania, my captors believing that they have broken my mind and spirit in such a way that I will tell them anything to relieve my torment. That I will turn the tide of war and conflict with my confessions, if for nothing more than a drip of water, their wait and angst nearly over, only to hear me speak of my bowel movements last Thursday. Or even better, how the look they're now giving me is quite similar to the one people not-so-subtly express when they realize I still play video games. Or how their current chorus of groans and accompanying eye-rolling remind me of my history with women, men, children, and all other life forms, not the least of which includes the suspicious squirrel in my backyard.
I'd prefer to spare them the details, though they would spare themselves with the final chokehold to end the whole affair and, yes, their now untold suffering. And they would lose the war by default, in an ironic turn of events. Perhaps even eliminating torture methods altogether.
In other words, I despise talking about myself. I avoid most social situations because I cannot bear to divulge the polite, scripted ordinariness of my life. **Continued in comment section⬇️**
Ten years! A lot has changed. 😳 You too? 🤷🏼♀️ I would LOVE to see. Post a pic from 10 years ago below, 👇🏻 or a side by side comparison photo like I did.
So, I saw people posting in the New Year a #tenyearchallenge
So I looked back at 2009, and look at this "gem" that I found 😂
Ok, so this was a costume and a performance, but seriously I look like I was run over by a mac truck!!! 🚚 ...and sure I was "playing the part." But this is also a real peek into what my life looked like.
Today actually marks 27 months clean+sober for me. 🙌🏻🙏🏼Still blows my mind. 🤯
Back in 2009, I thought I was living life to the fullest, little did I know.🙈 It was hustle, it was paycheck to paycheck, it was a party (whether I wanted to our not) that's just how it was. Life was great, it was FUN, but I struggled on the inside!
But today, 2019. My life is FULL. ☀️Like full in a way that I didn't even know existed. Just today, I had an ah-ha moment, ☝🏻 I actually feel comfortable in my own skin. I no longer have a desire of "I need more." I AM ENOUGH. I am happy inside and out, ok with being alone, LOVE myself, and my life is filled with REAL, AUTHENTIC, GENUINE relationships with others. Something I never really had before. I mean is there anything more I need. NOPE. My cup is FULL.
LIFE IS GOOD. 👍🏻
