I actually have a resolution for the first time in years.

In 2017, I will hike the John Muir Trail and summit Mt. Whitney.

Its going to take a lot of work for me to get there. I’ve got 8 rules to follow to help me get in shape over the next 7-8 months.

  1. Exercise a minimum of 20/min per day
  2. Drink 80 oz of water/day
  3. Do yoga 2x/week
  4. Lose 6lbs/month
  5. Track calories daily
  6. Eat a paleo diet
  7. Complete a minimum of 6 shakedown hikes
  8. Hike outdoors weekly wearing a pack

This is something I will need help with. I will need others in my life to help keep me on the right path, to speak up when they see me breaking the rules, to check in on me periodically. I’ll be reaching out. Please help me stay accountable.

If you can’t take a walk with me or join me at the gym, you can help out by purchasing something from my wishlists.
