Weigh in Day 2/21/14 -1lb, 55.4 down 34.6 left to go

I have to tell you this week was really tough.  There were work lunches I had to participate in that were catered in with no input from the attendees, so my choices were limited and I guessed on calories eaten on those 2 days.  I wont lie, I also indulged in the crazy rich, fatContinue reading “Weigh in Day 2/21/14 -1lb, 55.4 down 34.6 left to go”

weigh in Day 2/14/14 -.6, 54.4 lbs down 35.6 left to go

I know the loss isn’t much but in my mind it is huge because I had my monthly visitor hit this week and was still going through it on weigh in day so any loss is monumental at a time like this.  I worked out hard all week and patiently waited for my snowshoes toContinue reading “weigh in Day 2/14/14 -.6, 54.4 lbs down 35.6 left to go”

Mills Lake via Galcier Gorge RMNP Snowshoed 2/8/14

My hiking adventures on 1/18 & 1/19/14

My one goal this past weekend was just to make it above 9000Ft on our hike.  I had wanted to hit a new trail and then we got on I70 going west on a Saturday morning.  It was a parking lot even before Evergreen which is pretty bad.  With the traffic nightmare ahead of us,Continue reading “My hiking adventures on 1/18 & 1/19/14”

Evergreen Mountain – 3 Sisters Adlefer, Evergreen CO Hiked 1/11/14 & Mt. Hikingtohealthy done 1/12/14

The weather has been questionable lately and on Friday, high wind warnings were given to any place above 6000 Ft, which just about everywhere on the front range.   Hiking in high winds is not fun especially when the warnings are for 80+ mile an hour winds at times.  With this new little wrinkle thrownContinue reading “Evergreen Mountain – 3 Sisters Adlefer, Evergreen CO Hiked 1/11/14 & Mt.
