Tiny human, big, beautiful world 😍 another favorite from our big bad Banff adventure because current status: horizontal on the couch with a summer cold, or flu, I’m not sure what. But a little les miserables if I’m being honest. 🤷🏻♀️😂
This is probably the craziest storm cloud I’ve ever seen... it looked like it was starting to turn into a funnel-like shape, which definitely scared me and made me appreciate the 80mph speed limit in parts of UT!
However, as I was speeding full steam ahead, there was an electronic sign stating, “fire crews ahead, do not stop,” which obviously, with this gnarly cloud I wasn’t intending to, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say my adrenaline (and blood pressure) spiked thinking that I was sandwiched between a roadside inferno and a potential tornado - or at minimum a storm that could likely generate hail the size of golf balls!
Fortunately, the fire crews were non-existent, and the fire along the road was out, but it was still sad to see the rolling hills stretch for miles with charred trees.
You know those days when you feel like you just don’t want to do anything. When you are feeling like you just want to stay in bed and your “chimp” (as Simon Marshall and Lesley Patterson - Brave Athlete) starts making every excuse in the universe to justify you staying in bed. Well today I had one of those days. BUT I sent my chimp to the zoo and got on the ALTG machine. I realized on the machine that on those days we make great strides. I am getting so much stronger and just so grateful !
So do like me and send your chimp to the zoo and push through. You will not regret it. I promise. If you need extra motivation use me.
Also if you have been looking for a good cause to donate to .. look no further and donate here 😃please.
Some days you feel on top of the world, like nothing can stop you or hold you back. Then some days you fall ill, loose your voice and are reminded that sometimes your body just needs a break from the go.. go.. go... Always be thankful for your health. Take care of yourself - physically and mentally - and make the most of the sunshine even on cloudy days.
