Dear Yesterday

Highland Trail sign
From Granite Park Chalet, it’s another four miles down – a 2,000-foot elevation drop.

 

Highland Trail spur to Grinnell Glacier overlook
The .6-mile spur (left trail) gained serious elevation in our 14-mile hike. We were on the trail for 10.5 hours. Trail on the right is where we had come from.

 

Dear Yesterday,

While Tomorrow always holds bright hope for walking the talk, it also holds false hope and seemingly impossible temptations to overcome. You, Yesterday, actually tell me the truth. There’s never any sugar-coating from you about how much exercise i did, how much rest i got, and how balanced my nutrition was 24 hours ago.

Ps. i quietly vote for you to be the 2020 Olympic wellness coach in Tokyo.

Dear Tomorrow

Grinnell Lake
Only one way to get to this spot. Yes, you could ride a horse. Do you travel with a horse?

We hiked over 8 miles before lunch.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Please let me lean on you for the hope and joy of improving myself yet again.

Ps. Please don’t let me use you as an excuse to make poor wellness choices today.

Common Sense Is Elusive

The longer we’ve quit, the closer it gets to a lifetime

This young lady obviously refuses to quit

 

This time of year, it just really helps to hear the truth, whether it hurts or not. So for everyday I don’t feel like exercising, I just shut up, do it, whether I feel like it or not.

Each day we skip makes it easier to quit. The other thing (just to be crystal clear), the longer we go with quitting, the closer it gets to a lifetime.
