You should see the other guy. 👊💪 And by other guy I mean mailbox. 📭 Yes, if you live in my neighborhood, that ambulance and fire truck was for us. 🚑🚒 And until it rains again, there is an epic trail of blood down the sidewalk. I never thought I'd be one of those injury-posting people, but I'm just really glad we can laugh about this instead of the alternative; I don't mind adding this to our photo album. 😊😂 Work hard, play hard, and always watch where you're going. 😅

Ashton and I woke up early and spent the first half of the day in Chataqua Park climbing the Flatirons and the Royal Arch. The views were worth every foot climbed. This has definitely been the most picturesque hiking of my life thus far. This is why I wanted to vacation to Colorado. At the end of the day, Ashton and I got to scratch another itch of staying in a tiny home for a night! This was a perfect way to end a great trip.

Saw an eagle catch a fish on my walk today 🦅😲. I don’t know what kind of birds those are that are chasing him (maybe Ravens?), but it looks like they want in on some of that grub. This eagle did all sorts of acrobatics to hold onto his catch.
Can't decide between a "vogue" joke or a "draw me like one of your French girls" joke.
It’s the end of May and I have had to turn on my sprinklers. That’s one good thing about all of this rain.
Next comes flooding and hordes of mosquitos
Every time I travel I leave with a deep love for the people, a respect for their culture and a desire to return ❤️ It’s the whole reason I travel as much as I possibly can-why I make travel a priority. It’s an obsession. An addiction. A way for me to learn and grow and to truly love gods children
Another step back. I headed out on trail, up toward Teton Pass. Beautiful singletrack with mountain views and endless sign of moose would give way to a less hospitable outing. With a turn to the left and a frozen stream crossing I was off into deep woods. No more trail, I was left guessing the route through the trees atop almost a 4 ft deep snowpack. Everything was still ok until the snow got worse. When I started post-holing up to my waist with every step and my hands and legs started to get cut to pieces it was definitely time to leave the bear and big cat country. Still, Crater Lake is a beautiful little pond. Also, saw a moose in the wild from a few feet away, it could be worse.
Posted @withrepost • @amandalynne_fitt Friday thoughts (while I core work): we spend so much of our time comparing ourselves to others [especially with the advent of social media portals] that I think we miss out on the joy of so many experiences. We want our lives to be like other people’s, we want our performances to be like other people’s, we want to look like other people..... and in doing so we lose the joy of our own situation. I find this especially hard in racing, where placing or “winning” often means you’re being compared to other performances of the day. It’s easy to lose sight of the joy of YOUR day. So here’s to finding joy in every performance in 2019- no matter what the actual outcome. .
It was an exciting drive tonight through some crazy storms
Organizing, cleaning and upgrading. Upgraded the stock Alucab mattress to the REI camp-dreamer air mattress. Not only is it wayyy more comfortable, it also gives the ability to deflate it between trips, allowing extra storage for soft goods. It’s a win for me.
from the very wise words of ariana grande, “I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it” 👅
How do you use your feed? .
Is what you’re visually consuming every day uplifting + positive or does most of it make you feel small, like your life isn’t good enough or are somehow inferior? Do you scroll without ever interacting or are the people you are following sharing things that truly resonate with you, inspire you, make you think + grow? .
For years my feed was full of “what I am not” — fitness models, negative meme accounts (complaining/belittling), influencers going to luxurious destinations doing things that didn’t seem fully attainable, people with millions of followers that look like they are living large...that made me feel small. .
When I started realizing how some of these things made me feel I asked, “why are you Allowing it into your daily life?” So I started removing every account that made me feel inferior, that wasn’t real + authentic, that didn’t share truth + depth, that weren’t uplifting or using positive language, or didn’t inspire me..truly. If I find myself just aimlessly scrolling by content I check in and ask “is this adding to my life?” — if it’s a no... I don’t follow it anymore. .
That is not to say every piece of content will be jam packed with meaning or deep thinking or that every person Needs to be deep-sharing on social media. I have just gotten way more in tune with how some things effect me. This platform can be a really positive + inspiring space if it’s used properly .
What can You bring to this platform that will better those that come across your feed? Are you sharing what you really want to? I think I always wanted to share my inner thoughts + writing but was worried to. When I stopped hushing my own voice for fear of what? Rejection, people not liking it, people thinking it’s dumb? I started using my voice authentically. I started speaking on topics that speak to my soul + truly ignite me. I started speaking from the heart + it has exuded into other areas of my life offline. When I started lightening my feed with beautiful words + inspiring messages I was empowered to share my own 🌱
One of my favorite areas for sunsets😍 Mount Erie is a gem!
Nothing but steep chutes for breakfast, lunch, & dinner on this marvelous May 24th.
There’s a reason you don’t see too many pictures of me on my Instagram and if you do, it’s likely a back shot from far enough away that I look smallish. I’ve never really said why and you probably haven’t wondered haha. Let’s talk about it.
I grew up in an amazing home. I always felt loved and safe and was taught that I have incredible worth. But I also watched my angel mother diet her life away. I don’t remember a time that she wasn’t on weight watchers or wore a swimsuit in public or had a kind word to say about herself. I watched, and learned.
In elementary school, she bought me a swimsuit and I remember trying it on and telling her I looked fat. I remember putting myself on my first diet in 5th grade because I didn’t want to break 100 pounds. And so it began, I had learned to base my self worth on numbers.
Long story short, the past few years have been difficult due to injuries and life events (cough marriage). An all time low forced me to make major changes in 2019. I’ve been working hard and stepped on the scale yesterday to see that I’m down 20 pounds. But seeing the number I had wanted to see for so long didn’t make me happy (no surprise there). All I could think was, just 10 more.
But I’m done. I’ve realized over the past day that never being happy with myself is just exhausting and ungrateful. I love my life. I love my adventures. My body is strong and capable and helps me get to really cool places. Why should I waste so much energy wishing I looked different, when my body is so capable. All along, the needed change was in my mind, not my body.
Here’s to joy in the journey and being grateful for what I have. Here’s to loving my body for what it can do and treating it right simply out of gratitude. So here’s a pic of me, in a swimsuit, that I would never ever post. Have a sweet weekend ✌🏽
No hiking adventure is complete without feeling pretty small. The sounds of crashing glacier and squawking sound of mountain parrots filled the air for this little overnight. Another reason #whyihike@eddiebauer#ebcontributor
