There are moments where the weekly focus of Mamavation is spot. on.
This would not be one of those weeks.
I don’t camp.
When camping, I turn into a small child.
I don’t do nature.
There’s a running family joke about me being somewhere in nature and
screaming stating that I. Hate. Nature!
I really don’t do nature. I like having my creature comforts. Electricity, shower, toilet paper, a bed.
Camping was what we did for our family vacations.
I think I was 14-ish when we went on The Big Vacation.
My parents, my three sisters and I drove from Michigan to Washington.
Let’s do the math…
The drive back to Michigan from Washington was just my dad and his girls. Dad did all the driving. Dad made all the camping reservations.
Meaning we drove allllllllll day long, setting up camp in the dark. Electricity was a rarity. Almost as rare as toilets with a door…or that flushed.
I’ve been scarred for life.
I don’t do nature.
Question: Where are you planning for your feet to take you before 2011 ends? Any races or training plans?
I don’t have any plans other than to have my feet moving.
This is the time of year where I start adding my layers of inner insulation. On top of last year’s insulation… First comes Halloween and all the left over candy which just so happens to run out around Thanksgiving. Then there’s the birthday cake. And Christmas parties. And B’s birthday. And family Christmas parties. And eating my feelings from family Christmas parties. It’s a viscous, viscous cycle.
Putting one foot in front of the other and keep moving is my only plan. I can’t let life get the better of me. I’ve got to make and keep getting moving a priority this time of year!
I CANNOT believe I almost forgot!
The Two Week Challenge recap!
As much as it hurt and I said some not so nice things in my head, I got some serious results! And of course I can’t find where I put the numbers, but I lost inches! Once I find where my scatter brained self put the numbers, I’ll post.
