Earlier this week I mentioned I joined a gym. I’m not a gym person. I always feel so out of place and wimpy when I’m surrounded by people who can pick me up with one finger. However, we are in the midst of planning an adventure, which involves hiking a mountain. Since we are still in the planning stages of this trip, I’m going to wait to tell you where. Keep an eye out for the big reveal. I will say don’t expect too much. I won’t be climbing Everest and the mountain experience is only part of the trip.
Many of you may remember my adventure in Guatemala when I climbed a volcano.
It wasn’t pretty. I was completely out of shape and I paid for it. I don’t want to repeat that. Even though the trip isn’t finalized, I thought it’s time for me to get ready. We hope to leave for our trip in the spring. Not sure that the actual mountain experience will happen, but spring isn’t that far off so I don’t want to put off my training. And if we have to make changes to our plans, at least I may (I’m already doubting myself folks) be in shape. Let’s hope I am. Everyone else in the group is. I don’t want to be that one who ruins the fun and has to be airlifted to a hospital.
From what I’ve read about the mountain experience it will be amazing. I really hope we get everything finalized soon so I can firm up the final countdown. Please feel free to badger me about exercising. I’m going to need help staying focused. Fortunately my better half has signed up to be my workout buddy. It’s easier to do it together. Now, time for a cookie—I mean the gym.
