Yay, I have been excited that the respiratory illness has finally decided to leave! That seriously wiped me out over the last 3 weeks!
I am still overly tired and seem to be able to sleep forever. It's not related to the cold I am getting over. But I am not in the mood to dwell on that today.
I am so embarrassed at my Fitbit numbers, I even had a week where I reached the unranked section.... Ya, not good and even worse when I don't like in my mind looking lazy, even if it was out of my control:)
I also haven't had as much time to spend visiting other blogs, at least not much as I normally spend. I have been reading blogs at work, but most are too hard to comment by phone, so I haven't shared as much comment love. *sorry*
I am going to try a light run this morning. I just need it for the
relaxation part of it! I have to do something later today that is needed, but I am not looking forward to it and I think getting out for a light run will help before that portion of my day begins!
Wednesday after an appointment I found myself not to far from one of my favorite canyons, so I couldn't help to instead of turning the car to go home, turn it to head up the canyon. It was a beautiful drive (pic's shared in this post today), spring hasn't quite sprung in the mountains here yet except for in the lower elevations. I drove up to about 9000 ft, and although most of the snow (since we like skipped winter here this year) was melted, the lakes are still frozen over. However, a lot will change over the next month and I am really looking forward to camping on the weekends again come June!

We only went about 2 miles, and it took us 3 hours. That's what happens when you walk the pace of a 2 & 4 year old:) But that's okay, since my lungs still weren't the best, it actually worked out perfectly and I just felt fine and enjoyed a new hike I had never been on. Even though it's one that technically in a way is visible from my house.
I know weird huh! From my front door, I live about 20 minutes away from over 70 different hiking trails. I've taken all maybe 3 of those my entire life.
It's not that I don't hike, I guess I just don't mind a further drive to a destination to start, but I have decided this year I am going to start take advantage of the close proximity of so many awesome trail heads closer to home.
However, if you ask my niece she told me to make sure I only pick hikes that don't have bugs, LOL She is such a girly girl, but that's okay!

This week, I am going to focus on staying busy instead of things in my life out of my control. I am also going to definitely get out and begin running again.
It's going to take a couple of weeks to work back up, after not running for almost 4 weeks. But that's okay, I am looking forward to it!
LAST, I just opened sign ups this morning for the next Giveaway Hop, that will run in JUNE. If you'd like to join us we'd love to have you. Visit HERE to sign your blog to join.
So that is a little brief on my week. How did your week go? Have you been getting out and enjoying spring too?
