Yellow Leaves

Well, first of all, you may have noticed that this site is not any more exciting looking than it ever has been… turns out migrating your site is slightly less straightforward than I thought it would be, which is no surprise since I am a total web beginner. But changes are still in the works, they might just take a little while to get here!

Fall has arrived in full force this week in Colorado. The past few weeks have been a mix of 90-degree days and 60-degree days with summer still holding on for dear life, but this week fall has finally taken over and the highs are all in the low 70’s with rain and yellow leaves everywhere and even some snow on the high peaks. This past weekend we drove for about 2 hours to Granby, which is just outside the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park, and went on a gorgeous 7ish-mile hike that followed a creek through some pretty amazing yellow aspens. We even saw a family of moose (from very far away, which is good, because moose scare the crap out of me)!

Progress on my new goals is coming along slowly. I finally (remembered to take a measuring tape with me to the gym so I could measure the jump rope I use and) ordered my very own Rx jump rope, which should be arriving tomorrow, so I’m hoping that my Double Under goal will be met before I know it because now I will be able to practice at home! Also, so far we have been doing well with keeping up to 3-4 WODs per week, plus we did a skiing WOD last Saturday that my butt is STILL sore from.

One thing that I have not-exactly been keeping up with is my diet. In general it hasn’t been too bad–yesterday I had a big piece of fish and half an avocado and some pecans for lunch!–but I may or may not have purchased an entire pumpkin pie at Whole Foods last night. And I’m really not sorry, because pumpkin pie is deeeelicious!

Here are some more photos from our amazing little fall hike. What are some fall treats that you’ve been indulging in with the cooler weather setting in?
