Can the smallest change make the biggest difference?

Walking just 50 steps can change our outlook.

In the waiting, something magical amidst the doubt and worry

Two months is a long time to not exercise.

And in the waiting, something magical amidst the doubt and worry.

The years of constant tending.

The years of finding a way.

The years of not quitting.

The years of overcoming.

The years of changing.

The years of feeling great.

Then the two months of long, long days. Roller coaster days. Questioning days.

The awakening.

The gratitude.

The privilege.

The anticipation.

And yesterday…

A glorious return.

Exercise, rest, and nutrition are always the big three

Exercise, rest, and nutrition are always the big three. When tired and at the end of a long trip, common sense becomes more challenging.

Two food options.

Starbucks had 15 people in line.

A breakfast place next door with no line. Zero people.

We ate on the plane.

All that seemed edible was the eggs and potatoes .

Classic case of do the best you can with what you’re given.

Sure, we had power bars as backup.

But still.

Final walk and maybe the last ever?

Final walk and maybe the last ever?

Walking through Seattle, The Palouse, and Glacier National Park was great exercise.

Invigorating.

Inspiring.

Fun.

Was this the last time we’ll visit those places?

Odds are high.

Been 20 years since the last time. And 30+ for visiting Pike Place Market.

The value of one good day

Space Needle and EMP Museum
Two of the six must see Seattle attractions a block from hotel

 

The value of one good day. Not sure how many miles we walked and steps we climbed, but we got a ton of fresh air and exercise.
