So this is the first time I have really weighed in – in months. I have to say I was surprised it wasn’t more, which makes it about a pound a month.
I can tell though that I have lost a lot of the climbing muscles in my legs which makes me think it may just be 9LBs on the scale but the damage is worse because of the muscle loss.
I would like to say this was a better week for me health wise but it was actually worse. I had a crazy stressful week at work, worked long hours and squeezed in a workout at least once a day, sometimes twice but no weights. I didn’t track my food like I wanted to and I am sure I went over my allotted calories every day.
Plus I drank alcohol almost every night, just one drink a night but still I normally don’t drink during the week. But post hike it is always a celebration.
Oh well, I have to start somewhere….
My new goal will be to lose 40 lbs by next July 4th.
The hike I did today was a repeater but it is way out my ability right now. I am thrilled I made it all the way… and I have summit fever again….I love Colorado.
There is so much to see just here and I haven’t even started to think about all those other states and countries I have hiking envy over…I am looking at you Rob P My favorite Uk Backpacker! SO that means I need to get over myself and move forward…..slowly this is me getting over myself….
Get out there and hike, life is way too short!
