I'm a big believer that even the most consistent of exercisers needs to change up and re-energize their routine sometimes. Early last year and a few years prior I was all about running. Even on my lazy days I enjoyed doing a few leisurely miles outside and did a few races that I felt were worth my money. In the latter half of 2015 I suddenly started to dislike it and instead began going to the gym and doing heavy lifting with my hubby. I'm a bit fickle and need a healthy amount of change in my exercise routine to keep me motivated and energized.
This year I have a goal to get into nature more often. Not only are there awesome ways to get fit in nature, but it's nice bonding time for me and hubby and a good opportunity to practice photography. This past weekend we did a bit of hiking in Napa Valley and were pleasantly surprised with the choice of trails there. It was a decent workout and made me wish I could do that kind of stuff every day in place of the gym. But still, I'm excited about my goal because it is about the easiest little change that will help stimulate my workouts. My inspiration for today's post is goodnessknows® snack squares. Their tagline is "goodness to greatness" which is exactly what I'm going for with my small goal. They made a perfect companion on our little hike adventure--just a water bottle and some goodnessknows® snack squares is all we took for an energy snack.
I already have a list of other fun things I want to do over this next month or so. Do you have any similar plans? And what are things that you have done in the past--would love ideas!
-hiking and kayaking in Hawaii
-biking the neighborhood
-skating in NYC
For your own future adventures you can grab all three flavors of goodnessknows® snack squares near the registers at Walmart: goodnessknows® Cranberry, Almond, Dark Chocolate, goodnessknows® Apple, Almond & Peanut, Dark Chocolate, and goodnessknows® Peach & Cherry, Almond Dark Chocolate.
