I ❤️ New York, but it’s kicking my butt!

  1. You know what they say gal, “who has more fun than us”?! Sorry to hear that your room wasn’t quite up to the Motel 6 standard. One thing I’m learning in my more ‘mature’ days; sometimes a good cry can be a good thing. Looks like that noreastern thing is going to keep it wet for a little while. May our Lord send His righteousness before you!

  2. It makes me worried that you’re losing weight so fast.

    I don’t know if you’re anything like me. When I get too tired, I cannot eat. I try to eat anyway.
    At the very least, drink water.

    That is my advice to you. Try to eat a little here and there even if you don’t feel like it. And, eat more than just your meals if you can. At the very least, try to drink water. I drink Gatorade when I’ve sweated tons.

    I’ll be praying that all things look up for you soon.

    1. Thank you for your prayers and the advice. You are right. I’m having trouble with lunch. That is when I am in the thick of my exercise and when I am the hottest! I’m trying to drink Gatorade before my Coke when I get into town.

  3. I’m sending you all the good and positive thoughts and energy (my way of praying). I’m glad you survived that motel. I chuckled a bit when I read Bates Motel. The point was you were out of the rain for a day. I know it has been bad and hope you’re doing okay. Eat. I know my daughter doesn’t like to eat when she gets really tired but I make her if she needs it – especially things with carbs and protein. *hug* You’re doing fantastic!!!

    1. Thank you, Jennifer. I’m trying. I know you are right. It’s easy when I am in town. Not so easy when I’m hot and sweaty and I’m facing a dehydrated meal. I am trying though…I’m just burning so many calories it’s hard to get them all in.

  4. I’m praying Kara. This all sounds rough. I’m sorry you feel so run down and emotional. I believe in crying. It’s definitely a release. You will get through this. I know you don’t like this motel. I’m praying for comfortable one. Maybe take 2 zeros and recoup. I love you. Jesus is with you. ❤ Liz

  5. Lots of prayers being sent your way! I’m so sorry you’re having a rough patch. Glad you could rest a bit. I hope you can eat some pretty dense calories to keep your weight up, and I hope you can stay more hydrated, too. All a balance.


  6. Kara, I was praying for you even as I was hiking and praying for me this past weekend! I am amazed how our Lord answers sincere prayers. He is with you, always.
    My back still did the tighten up, not as bad as the April long hike, but close. Gonna have to look at somehow losing pack weight, etc.
    I also find it very difficult to eat a lunch when in stride mode, especially when weather does not ideal for a pack-off break. Hugs 🤗 and prayers 👏-data


    1. Thanks for your prayers and for the update on your hike! Sorry to hear your back is still tightening up. Have you experimented with rearranging how you pack your backpack? Someone reminded me recently about putting my food bag up and down, and stuffing my tent on either side. I had been laying it flat side to side because it’s so large! Doing it the up and down way really helped the way the pack carries! It took the pressure of my lower back and shoulders. It’s worth a try to experiment! Sounds like you had rain too, if you had to eat on the go.😕
