Last week, I also had a fun aspect of my internship.  We went hiking!  As I said on Saturday, not every part of health is about fitness BUT a portion is.  Being stuck in an office everyday is even worse. 

Part of my internship (maybe ¼) is focused on helping people become healthier.   Not necessarily lose weight, but lead healthier lives.  Maybe they are done competing in their sport and have never been to the gym by themselves…maybe they want to lose weight.  Maybe they just want to learn a bit more about nutrition and want a peer who is knowledgeable (hey that’s me) to chat about it with. 


Whatever floats their boat, I am that person to chat with.


Anyways the undergraduates and I went on a hike.  It was a lot of fun and I really proud of them for making it up and down that mountain to the water falls.  Some had not worked out or been to the gym in months and to hike a 500 foot climb was incredible. 


I hadn’t been hiking in a couple of years personally but I did quite enjoy it!

Question for you:  Do you like hiking?

  1. That’s awesome that you get to hike as part of your internship! I get my love of hiking from my family (although I don’t get around to it as much as I used to since I’ve upped my mileage), and I’m very fortunate to have a plethora of incredible local trails. One of the more famous is nicknamed “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster” and it is fantastic! Super steep, and most people take about an hour and a half to get up on their first try. I’ve only ever done it twice, but I’m somewhere in the high thirty minute range – something that’s considered quite the achievement around here 😉

  2. Hiking is such a great way to change up exercising! And beautiful views… what’s not to love?!

  3. Gorgeous pictures! I do like hiking, & live near lots of good hikes, which is awesome. My kids are just getting to the age where they like to do easy hikes. . . As long as I bring snacks for the halfway point. 🙂

  4. Your hiking trip looks like so much fun! I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve never officially been hiking. Gotta change that soon. Your internship sounds awesome btw!

  5. Hey hey!!! I decided to copy & paste my reply to your ? on my post over here so you’d see it =)

    Since I’m in keto and high-intensity activity is fueled by glycogen, I have periodic refeeds, which are basically carb-ups. I eat all my regular meals, plus 150-200g of carbs =) I’ve been prepping for 14 weeks on Saturday and have had 3 refeeds =)
