The Road is Long.

I knew this trip was going to be challenging; leaving the comforts of home and the scheduled workouts to go solo is something I have never excelled at doing.  When I left Seattle I was averaging five workouts a day week and on the road I am averaging three.  I keep telling myself I need to get into a groove but I need to ensure that it doesn’t take six months to see “How Sarah Got Her Groove Back”.

One of my biggest obstacles is also one of my favorite personal characteristics, I am social.  I hate missing out on a party and let’s be honest these first two weeks have been a bit of a celebration.  I am experiencing a freedom that I haven’t had in years, no one dictating my schedule and absolutely no routine.  I have had the opportunity to meet up with friends in Missoula, Livingston, Red Lodge, Lethbridge, Canmore, Calgary and Whitefish.  These people all have played a great importance in my life and most I hadn’t seen in years, I needed to and wanted to reconnect.

I don’t regret a moment that I have spent these past few weeks.  I have been reveling in the experiences that I have encountered while trying to find a balance with healthy eating, working out and blogging.  This journey is nothing without the experiences, but it is just embarrassing without the fitness and healthy eating.  I vow not to change the name of my blog to “Gaining Weight Off the Interstate”.

Now, that I have been honest and told you that I am slacking a bit and struggling to find my footing it is only fair that I share in some of my successes as well.  Since I started working out regularly in preparation for this trip I am down about 25 pounds.  I wish it were more, I wish it happened quicker but I am committed to a slow and steady weight loss.

The other struggle I have been having is the cadence of my experiences vs my blogging.  Currently I am backlogged in the blog arena, I have about a week and a half delay.  I am finding it difficult to continue experiencing these experiences while trying to carve time to write.  Again, I need to find my balance.

I have some great posts coming up and I want to thank you all for sharing in this journey with me, without you all it would be a long and lonely road ahead.

Below are the few pictures I have of myself, some with friends, some solo. I will be better at taking and posting pictures of myself.
