I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.

CURRENTLY READING - ‘A Walk In The Woods’ by Bill Bryson. 

Extra excited for this one, feeling like I haven’t read a book I really really loved in a while & hoping this is the one.

BOOK 28/60 for 2014 reading goal - feeling pretty on point for my goal!

Sidenote: my cupcake shellac manicure is still looking flawless 2.5 weeks later.

DINNER - sautéed lean ground chicken & asparagus with lime, garlic & a dash of salt.

I’m on day 9 of 100% strict paleo. My current plan is eat strict paleo & have ONE treat a week. I always feel best when I was eating super strict paleo vs splurging often so I’m gonna get back to that!

Where is that forest located? Thanks

It’s on a hiking trail to Bandera Mountain in the Snoqualmie National Forrest not too far from North Bend, WA

Woke up this morning at 7am to hike Bandera Mountain, an ‘expert level’ 9 mile hike in the Snoqualmie National Forrest - climbed up to the peak at 7,000ft to sit in the clouds.

Scenery changes along the way - foggy basin, rocky canyon, wild flower filled hills. 

The fog & clouds were out in full force today making the forrest look spookier than usual.

River crossings on today’s hike - wished it was hotter & less cloud cover so I could jump in!

More scenes from Esmeralda Basin trail today - 8 miles hiked / rock climbed.

Hiked up the Esmeralda Basin trail today over in Cle Elum Washington - so so so windy up at 7,000ft at the top of the trail.

Evening snack — fueling up for a day of hiking tomorrow.

Avocado > Everything else.

If there was enough light & you could read my shirt you’d see it says “You Can’t Sweat With Us” - forever into Mean Girls inspired tanks.

&& now time for kickboxing!
