Sunday Hike (With Dogs!)

I can't believe we've already made it through 1/12 of the year. It truly shocked me when I looked at my iPod and the little calendar icon had a "1" on it. Where has all the time gone?

To start off the month, Wei-Wei and I went hiking up in Quicksilver. She brought her two dogs, Angel and Basilgroot, and off we went, under the hot sun (even in the middle of winter) and along the parched trail. My thighs killed me almost immediately, but I'm glad I got the exercise. It made me realize that I really miss swimming, but I simply don't have enough time for it.

I also tested out the camera I got for Christmas. It's pretty good, but there's not a lot of interesting stuff to photograph. I also tried to vlog. At one point I strapped the camera to my backpack straps like a GoPro and it actually worked. Unfortunately, the dogs were pulling on the leash so the footage ended up being really shaky. I might upload some of it in the future when I have more time to edit and everything.

February's mini monthly focus: balance. As a pretty high strung perfectionist, I often go through the highest of highs and lowest lows very quickly. You might say that I'm easily overwhelmed, to the point where I am set off by the tiniest of things. This month, I want to be more aware of my emotional state so I don't trigger an anxiety attack just by sheer overreaction. Balance is key, not only for physical health, but also mental and emotional health, so I'm going to try to work on that. ◊
