Is it about the Journey or the end Destination?

Today’s 43 was the move that I used for G in my ABC Boot Camp – Groaners!!!  I think that this move is really called a thruster but I changed the name to make it work for my letters (and there was a bit of groaning involved!!).

Start in plank – jump feet in to hands out wide – jump back to plank.

I think the jumping involved in this 43 helped work out some of the residual soreness from my long run the other day!!

Today was 6 am Boot Camp and it was pretty tough!!!  We did 3 mini pyramids (I had 4 planned but I didn’t want to go over the 45 minutes!!).   Even though I made it up, I’m sort-of dreading repeating it tomorrow at the beach – well, not really but I know that I will be feeling it!!

I’m also participating in a fitness challenge with Taylor @ Lifting Revolution.  I don’t do many challenges but I like the way this one is structured – 6 weeks, 6 different workouts (1 per week to be done 3x), a couple of new recipes – it fits in perfectly with the way I like to work out!!  Today was the first day and this week’s workout is challenging!! It only took about 30 minutes or so to complete the whole thing but it was intense.  I still have 2 more times to repeat it this week – can’t wait!!!

So, what do you think – journey or destination?  I think that it varies at different points in life.  I know that  if you look at all of the inspirational quotes they all say the same thing –

However, I think that there are some times that the destination is the best part!!!   Especially when the journey involves thisScreen shot 2013-07-15 at 8.26.35 AMfor this amount of time and miles!!!Screen shot 2013-07-15 at 8.29.11 AMBut the destination is so worth it when it isScreen shot 2013-07-15 at 8.31.06 AMwhich means lots of time enjoying my favorite happy place!!Screen shot 2013-07-15 at 8.30.37 AM

I’m not gonna lie – I am not the most fun person to travel with!!  I just want to get there!!!  Stops are short, infrequent and only when necessary!!!  I’m not one of those people that likes to detour and check out all the sites on the way.  I’ve tried to be more like that when traveling and all it does is make me grit my teeth – I just want to keep trucking along until we are at the final destination!!!

Now, there are lots of other areas of life that I’m all about the journey!Screen shot 2013-07-15 at 8.16.00 AMI think my fitness journey is kind of like the above quote – it’s a journey that will never end because I want to continue to try and improve my fitness level every single day!!

The same could be said about my role as both a wife and a mother – it’s about enjoying the journey!!Screen shot 2013-07-15 at 8.15.08 AMI like the above quote – because I think that in many areas it is true – the journey is the destination and it should be enjoyed and treasured at every little stop.  It’s not about rushing through to get to the end but stopping frequently along the way!!!  (as long as we aren’t talking about a mega long car trip!!!)

What do you think – journey or destination?  
Long car trips – stop and sight see or just get there?    

Happy Monday!
