I climbed Mount Fuji

Life sure got busy last week—it’s been almost a week since my last post because I haven’t had time to breathe, let alone type…

But there’s lots of ‘good busy’ happening in my life right now. My job in Japan has ended. J and I are only 15 sleeps away from flying back to the U.S. AND we found out last week that we were approved for the apartment we applied for.

Still lots of cleaning, packing, and organizing to do before we move home (and even more once we get home and finally sort through the stuff we own and have forgotten about!).

But, in the meantime, we climbed Mount Fuji this past weekend.

Here’s a video recap of the climb (Spoiler: I hated it!):


As you might have noticed from the video, I have gotten Windows Movie Maker cooperating again—I think this will get me motivated to make videos more regularly again! Once we are back home and in a regular routine, I will resume my weigh-in videos.



  1. sorry you didn’t enjoy your Fuji climb :(

    Would you recommend using VFFs for Fuji? Do you think you’d have enjoyed it more had you used hiking shoes?

    1. I do recommend VFF for Fuji, if you have taken the time to allow your feet and leg muscles to adjust to barefoot shoes. I really enjoyed using my VFFs and do not regret it at all!

      1. Oh cool! Everyone has been discouraging me in my plan to use mine :(

        I have been using them for quite some time now, and can do a 10++ mile run with them so hopefully I will also enjoy using them like you :D

        Btw, nice blog! :)
