What's Your Why?

Over the last few months I have been swimming, biking, running, hiking, and walking.  Along the way I have stopped often and taken pictures of the amazing world we live in.

This past few weeks I have struggled to get my workouts done.  I come home from work and just want to get comfy clothes on and crawl into bed.  Basically I just want to hibernate.

I have been moody and weepy.  I have been irritable.  I'm pretty sure I haven't been a lot of fun to be around.

Today on my hike I spent a lot of time taking pictures because it was just so incredibly beautiful.  It occurred to me that this was a big part of why I started the journey to being a healthier me.  I wanted to be able to hike, go on adventures and enjoy the world I live in.

So today I'm looking back at the last few months and remembering why I love being an active person.
