I guess after losing that weight I gained back, I can’t be too surprised by not losing anything this week. I am also not all that concerned, it was a crazy week at work and I am just glad I didn’t eat my stress which I normally would do. I kept to working out on my normal schedule and just dealt with it all. That in itself is a huge win and so I continue on.
More importantly we had a great hike today and with the long weekend I am planning a second hike…likely a repeater but there is something about being able to get out twice in the course of a weekend that always makes me feel good. We also met the nicest people at the summit, best part about starting early the huge hike lovers are always out and this couple had so many good suggestions! I was a huge dork putting everything they suggested into my iPhone for our future. Honestly, they have been doing what we are doing for almost 15 years and I completely decided I want to be where they are in 5 years. It was just exciting talking to them and learning about all they have done and how they have done it! Great people to meet as things start to cool off.
I am also starting to realize that I may not meet my goal of losing 90 lbs by my 40th birthday, at least not at the rate I am going. I know I could do a more drastic approach but the more I think about it, the more I realize I am ok with progress this far. It took me 10 years to put this weight on and while I would love to be a size 12 tomorrow, I am actually fine with how I am losing the weight. Right now the most important part is that this has really started feeling like a lifestyle and not a diet. I feel like I could live this way…..
Can’t wait to get all the hike details together to share with you all…. it was such a great day!!!!
