January Habit...Walking/Hiking

December 30th, 2006 at 03:48 pm

I have been reading, highlighting and earmarking my new book on hiking.

I heard so many wonderful remarks and suggestions from all of you---which really has me motivated to get started now!

Best of all, both DD3 and DH are on board for this new hobby. They have both been asking questions and I can see that they, too are eager to get started.

I have a feeling this new hobby is going to be the death of those blasted blood pressure meds once and for all!!!!

DH and I are going to deliver a load of wood this morning and will be scouting out a couple of the trails mentioned in the book.

I already have a pair of binoculars and a digital camera with plenty of memory. I will use my old ratty tennis shoes to start..DH has a nice Cabella's backpack. Now to look up some good trail mix recipes...and I think we are all set!

DH and I have been...well, at odds lately. I am hoping this will provide a means of reconnecting---something we can both enjoy and be excited about.

Hiking...hmmm....frugal fun...healthy...and food for the married souls....Perhaps that free gift card from My Points will be more valuable than I realized.

In any case, my JANUARY habit is pretty well defined and Im anxious to start seeing results...and having some fun with it! Bring on the New Year!

    Ray, i'm so excited for you!!!!! weird thing to say about hiking, but i agree that it provides food for the soul and a definite opportunity to reconnect with your spouse. DH and i are at our best with each other on road trips and when we hike/camp...

    ok, trail mix. you might like GORP (good ol' raisins and peanuts), and it's definitely easy to make on the cheap. personally, i'm not a huge peanut fan. i go to the health food store and hit their bulk bins. get a half pound of mixed nuts, a half pound of sesame sticks, a half pound of flame raisins (they're huge!), and some dried cranberries for me. mix it all up, divide by 2 for me and DH, add cranberries to mine, and we're all set.

    nuts = protein, fruit = simple carbs, sesame sticks = complex carbs. everything a body needs to traipse around in the woods for a while. don't forget water bottles!!!
