Up To The Top Of Chimney Rock!

Last week I blogged about how my wife has caught the fitness bug and has been watching what she eats and working out every day. It has been nice to spend time with her and that we have something we can do together and be there for one another. It has brought out marriage to another level.

This past weekend my wife decided she wanted to go to the mountains and hike up Chimney Rock, which is near Lake Lure. It is about 2 hours from us. So we packed a cooler and a backpack and loaded the kids up and headed that way early on Saturday morning.

We got there before lunch and just before the crowds came in. We strapped Everly to my back and started to make our way to the top.

My wife did great. She and my oldest stopped a few times to catch their breath. They were a ton of stars. I think I heard someone say about 27 flights and 515 stairs total.

When we finally made it to the top I was very happy for my wife. It was a huge accomplishment for her. She is just starting her journey and I am looking forward to seeing where it takes her. She said she wanted to come back next year and do it again for some before and after photos.

Also the view is stunning…


After we hiked the rock we got some lunch at Medina’s and then played in the river before heading home. It was an awesome day and we will be back I hope really soon.

Swolemates In The Making

It has finally happened folks. My wife and I are finally working out together!

Ever since I got into fitness I have dreamed of getting my wife to join me. I always saw couples at the gym working out together and that was always something I wanted for me and BrittWhitFun. She came up to ma couple of days ago wanting me to teach her things and give her some workouts.

Before I knew it she was starting to eat better and ask about how to lose weight and tone her body. So we researched and I gave her some stories from my own experience.

I explained that it is a journey and not an overnight thing. To keep trying even if you feel like given up. My body is no where I want it to be but I am getting closer everyday and I know with hard work and dedication and a super supportive husband she will be fine.

This is going to be fun.
