Climbing the equivalent of Mount Everest in Utah 2020! I need your help getting through the journey. #accountability #thisisgoingtobehard
Back in the gym... The biggest challenge for me has been getting my head straight again. . Losing my mom and now my grandpa is in his last days, has been a mental crusher. People tell me, it's hard but get back up and shake it off. Just do it and you'll feel better. No excuses April, you just dont want it bad enough...I absorb all of that and yet, I cant shake it some days. I cant get out of the depressed mental state some days. I often feel less than. . I started this journey to change myself. I used the hike as my end goal. I am being shaken, tested, measured, these are clearly the things I must go through and beat to fulfill my life transformation. . This is the moment of truth, where I decide if I'm going to make it or not. This is the moment where true change happens. . You guys, growing yourself is so [email protected]#king hard! If you are coming from a weaker mind it's even harder. . One day at a time..... ‐-------‐--------------------------‐-------------------------- #motivation #lifetransformation #fitness #gym #fit #goals #strength #grind inspirational #inspiration #getfit #mentalstrength #growth #change #beauty #healthylifestyle
Klamath Falls Oregon, although my visit is bitter sweet, it does not disappoint. This little tiny slice of heaven has been home for my grandfather and his Wife for 25 years. . . My grandfather was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer ( a name I cannot pronounce or spell) but it is extremely rare. His days are limited which is why a quick trip was necessary. He is in hospice now in the comfort of his own home. . My grandfather was the most amazing person. He hiked hundreds of mountains, including some 12,000 feet ones (mount Shasta to be exact) multiple times and he never once winced an eye. He enjoyed kayaking, bikeriding, and birdwatching and photography. This man was a hair stylist and self taught furniture maker. . He was feisty and determined and it aggravates him to no end that he cant walk without losing energy and it breaks my heart. . I love him and I am not ready to lose him but my mom is waiting for him and I know he will be with the eagles soon. Love you gramps.
Beating the ground for health, change, and grounding. I'm grateful today for the opportunity to walk. The opportunity to have the health that allows me to get outside and climb. Too many people do not have this opportunity so thank you God for today and pray I see tomorrow. #grateful #gratitude #motivation inspirational #inspirationalquotes #fit #fattofit #lifechallenge #doyou
5 minutes home from being away for a few days, and we are in the emergency vet clinic. Gaping wound...not sure what happened. 🤦♀️
I have been through some major challenges lately with my mom passing away suddenly of an undisclosed cause and I have a bulging disc that causes immobility on most days. . .BUT IM NOT GIVING UP! . I have hard days. Days where I want to sleep all day, days where I want to give up on everything I've accomplished. I feel tired. Then I get amazing messages from perfect strangers who are telling me that I've made a difference in their lives.. WOW! . Me? I have made an impact on someone? That feels so weird BUT its fuel. It is the fuel that gets my blood pumping again and I begin to feel intensely what my purpose is, and that is, to make a difference. To break patterns and chains. I am to fight. I have always been a survivor and now is no different. . I know I will still face hard days and that's OK. I just know I'm not giving up. . . #fit #keepgoing #grind #motivation #helpothers #giveback #fire #bossbabe #fitness #gym #gymlife #grief #depression
Sometimes you just need a little beach therapy to clear your head and to find your grounding again.
Yesterday I was finally able to get a referral to physical therapy for my back. I was also told that I should not do the 29029 hike because it will most likely blow my back completely and I'll be done for the rest of my life..... . . Has anyone else have a bulging disc and still do intensive and extreme hikes?? @29029_everesting
I'm broken... My mom passed away unexpectedly a few weeks ago and of course it's been devastating. . I will never get to make amends. I will never get to hear her voice. I will never get to hear your laugh again. I'm broken. . The past few weeks I've gone over what is important in my life and now questioning everything. I don't know which way is which and again,. I'm lost and broken. . I hate pity parties and I'm definitely not trying to have one, but rather I'm really trying to be real and authentic. It's okay to feel this way right? And it's also going to pass right?
Ah man, talk about hit me in the heart. Everyone deserves to be loved and have the ability to love. Intimately or not to love is to live. . Think about it, do.you feel more love when you give to someone or when someone gives to you. I hide my feelings a lot and I am vowing not to do that anymore. I want to love. I want people to know they are loved. . I want to live, truly live the most genuine life I can with an abundance of love to give. . I want to put a smile on people's faces and help where I can. I never want another person to die alone. No one deserves that.
Meet Brody. This dog went to live with my grandparents the same time that my mom moved in. Brody actually belongs to my uncle who, at the time, could not house him. So, my grandpa takes him in and Brody bonded with my mom. . Brody and my mom became inseparable. He would be so anxious when she would leave and then follow her around when she was home, to include sleeping next to her at night. Even if she didn't want him to, he would sit at the door and cry until she let him in. Needless to say this was her baby. . As you guys know from my last post, my mom unexpectedly passed away on Friday and I showed up after 10 hours on the road Sunday evening in Oregon. . Brody greeted me as if I were my mom. He cried when he met me and hasn't left my side since I've come. . Brody has given me so much peace since being here and dealing with all of the emotions that come from a death. . I'm so grateful for this special relationship and wish he could come home with me.
