Hiking- harder than before!

Chris, Koda and I went up to the Adirondacks for a hike this past weekend  - the Crows. It's a short enough hike, about 3 1/2 miles, but the 1st mile is a pretty steep and constant climb, And I learned something about my body's capabilities right now - climbing isn't really my thing!

I'm not sure what it has to do with, but I think it might be my blood pressure, which is decently low in the best of times but even lower right now. I would have to stop every 10 to 20 feet and get my heart rate to come down. I would get very lightheaded and dizzy with a certain level of exertion. Walking flat or downhill was absolutely fine and I could've gone for miles more.

So we are not really looking at climbing mountains together as a family this summer and fall as things stand. There are a lot of awesome hikes that are mostly flat and lead to beautiful lakes or waterfalls and attractions like that.


I definitely miss the forests and mountains and the Adirondacks in general and I'm ready to get back out there in the coming weekends, but take it a little bit easier :)

Otherwise, I'm doing well, my hunger levels have really evened out. I don't need as many snacks between meals as I did before. I'm happy about that, because I just couldn't seem to get enough food last month! I felt nuts.

That's all for me for now - I'm working overtime this week to bring in a little extra cash, so I have less free time. But I'm still reading and I'll try to write a little bit!

Namaste <3
