I will admit, I was nervous for this hike. I haven't been great about exercising, and didn't know how my body would hold up. Before we left, I tried to think of excuses as to why I shouldn't go. And then, something dawned on me... for so long I have been holding back. For so long, my weight has been an excuse. I don't allow myself to do the things I love because I let my weight stop me. And before I left, I said to myself, "I will no longer let my weight get in the way. I can do hard things." As we were hiking through this amazing canyon, my husband mentioned how there were so many other places we needed to go see. That's when I came to the realization...I want to have these experiences. I want to grow old with my husband, being able to enjoy these things. I need to exercise and keep my body healthy, so I can enjoy these things.
6 AM came rather early this morning!
