So despite what I have told past boyfriends for
the "outdoorsy factor" I kind of hate hiking. (gasp!? I know)
Since I am so afraid of heights, I never usually enjoy the view from the top,
I hate bugs, and since my extended family is so competitive,
I have a hard time keeping up and asking for breaks haha.
So yesterday was Earth Day, I felt like going on a run but actually not at all.
So after getting on Pinterest under the "Fitness" category
(This is how I get myself motivated, I go look at all those hard core ripped girls with sayings like "EXCUSES ARE USELESS" and "SWEAT IS FAT CRYING" until I feel so guilty I get up and do something..longest parentheses sentence ever)
ANYWAYS...I decided I was going to hike the "Y" instead of a run,
sounded easier than a run (ya right).
Ben was at work so I had nothing else to do
and the earth day part was a bonus!
So I hiked the "Y' by myself and for the first time I kind of got it, why people like hiking!
Mind you this is like a 30 minute hike,
let's not get ahead of ourselves,
I am most likley still not a fan of the 8 hour excursions
eating only trail mix and scaling cliffs kind of hiking.
My playlist was truly inspired, I put my ipod on "shuffle all' and it was pumping out my jams!
1st song-Never Say Never by the BIEBS
2nd-One Step at a Time-Jordin Sparks (lyrics were very literal to me)
3rd-Stronger by Brit Spears
See? And it only got better!
I didn't plan it but I went at the perfect time and the sun was setting
and Provo has never looked so good.
It's weird how a city can look beautiful but it did!
I am not one to "enjoy" nature like I should
but yesterday was a good one.
So Happy Earth Day people!
