What does a balance body look like for you?
As promised, here is my weekly photos.
My apologies for the lack of posts, but I went on a spontaneous adventure in Japan. I ended up hiking for 2 hours up Mt. Misen (in Miwajima) and biking across the islands of Shikoku. I biked 8 hours (over 70 km/43 miles) from Onomichi to Imabari. Both things I recommend doing! It was AMAZING. It may have been the most badass and coolest thing I’ve accomplished solo thus far.

This week my focus is on recovery and making sure I don’t get sick. I believe this is an essential part of balancing my body out. I am currently exhausted and need to make sure that sleep and nutrition are first this week before exercise. I burned well over 4,000 calories in one day. Remember to stay in tune with your body is asking you for (mine wants sleep, bread, and eggs). If you try and push yourself too hard, it could end up costing you in one form or another.
Also some quick travel snacks that I packed for this trip were oatmeal and apples. They are quick and easy to pack. I also drank a lot of FRS. I have been drinking it for 3 years now and it has helped increase my energy levels while giving me vitamins and control my horrible allergies because it has quercetin. I drink the lo-cal orange concentrate drink religiously although it’s been hard since living in Japan.
Other little gems I collected from this experience: Do what you can, the best that you can. Remember that it’s not a race and you don’t have to compare yourself to others. When you get to the finish line or top, it’s always worth it. Always have fun and don’t be afraid to try something new because you never know what new think you may love doing (or hate).
