Once Upon a TIme.....

So Jillian is always hammering home the 'Why' in this series.  "If you have a why you can tolerate any how" is the quote she uses.  I LOVE reading and watching other people explain their why, however I don't have a concrete reason when I think about it.  I have a feeling that I am striving for.  The feeling I got when I was the most fit in my life--- I want to feel that again.  This was several years ago when I hiked Mount Whitney in Lone Pine, California.  This was absolutely the most breathtaking, life changing experience I ever had.  I trained for months and was the fittest and happiest I have ever been in my life.

I want to feel as fit, healthy and proud as I felt this day hiking up that Mountain.  It was as if ' If I can do this, I can do anything'. 

So workout 5 again today.  MUCH better than the first time through.  I am so happy that the one legged squats were so much easier.  I just looked away from the tv- focused, breathed and balanced and it came.  I may not have been as fast as the group, but I got down and I got up.  The only time I lost balance was when she says 'One More'- yay.   I was surprised that the move I struggled with the most was the cable chest flies.  The first time through- smooth sailing and good form.  The second time through- OWW, my arm wanted to bend. 

Good Night all!  


  1. What a gorgeous photo. That sounds like such an amazing experience. You CAN do anything! You are already proving that.

  2. You made me want to go hiking so bad right now!

    1. DO IT! I cannot describe how being that close to nature changes your perspective for the better!
