Had a successful leg day the other day. I wasn’t actually expecting to sweat as much as I did. I don’t post a lot anymore because I’ve gotten down a little. Don’t know if I’m actually reaching anyone. But I need to get out of my own head and just so it, not for myself, but for anyone who does struggle to help them realize everyone reaches low points in their world. Not a low point in general just that I want to help others understand nutrition better. So I need to make an effort to post about what I eat on a regular basis.
So going to be much more active on here. Need to stop being afraid to post and just post because it’s good to.

Exactly one year ago I promised myself I would start living more in the moment and less for the photos I’d post on social media later by taking a hiatus from Instagram. It’s been one year, and I’ve traveled through every major city on the west coast, been to the garden of one thousand Buddha’s, visited the only rainforest in the lower 48, packed up my car and moved to Montana on a whim, and had some truly life changing nights camping in the most beautiful national parks in the Western Hemisphere - and that doesn’t even begin to tell the half of it. I don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon, but I do have plans to post about it a little more regularly from now on:

It’s always a good idea to wear clothing that is going to be soft on your skin and allow your skin to breathe post-waxing. Cotton is usually a great option. #postwaxtips #missoulawaxing

Be your best. Be courageous. Become a graduate! Alternative education often means best practices. The delivery of high quality education paired with dedicated education teams who are committed to empowering the students most often left behind. Students left unchallenged, left unsupported, left to falter about through the scariest times of their lives, sometimes without an adult to say they care. Thank you #Missoula
, thank you #teachers
. Here’s saying goodbye to an amazingly rich education historical building... and my morning/evening sunshine. The new building is amazing. These kids deserve to feel like their education matters! Don’t believe me? Stop by and check it out! Willard has always been lively, the new space sends a message that we as a community are invested in these kid’s future. #alternativeeducation #educationmatters #graduationmatters #learningdisabilities #homelessandatriskyouth #projectbasedlearning
The 2nd graders from Niki Vanek’s class at Lewis and Clark Elementary school stopped by last week to review some ice cream flavors! Our Bubblegum flavor turned out to be the group favorite. #ohboy
can you still post a senior pic if you’re not a senior anymore 🥴
Whom You Meet on a Bike
Been a couple long days since I've posted. It's tough finding wifi out here. But I'm back for better or worse.
I was advised at the bike store back in Lewiston to stay off the Lewiston departure route my maps recommended, so, two days ago, I went to Winchester, somewhat south, instead. It brought me through Nez Perce territory, where historical markers along the road tell a story that probably the Nez Perce themselves wouldn't tell, a story emphasizing white men who knew the Nez Perce, the arduous task of building tunnels for the railroad, and other notes that featured few Nez Perce. I didn't see one that mentioned Chief Joseph, who led a brilliant running retreat to save his people from annihilation by the U.S. Army in 1877. There may have been a plaque like that, but I didn't see it.
On Friday (3 days ago) I'd stopped at a marker about William Craig, a pioneer who married a Nez Perce woman in the late 1830s and settled among her people. A car was parked behind me and a couple approached. The woman said she'd seen me in the paper. They were Lin Tull Cannell and her husband, Merk. She's written a book on Craig: "The Intermediary: William Craig Among the Nez Perce" and was doing further research, looking for his grave. You can find it on Amazon. They were from Orofino, the major city within the Nez Perce reservation.

Sorry I have to cancel the pup-up as I am overextended. Thanks@to
The Brunswick and Leslie Millar for understanding. #Missoula #Montana
Watched the destruction of the old Willard School today while hearing people's memories of the nearly 100 year old building. High excitement but high emotion. #onassignment
