Weigh in Day 5/17/13 NO CHANGE

no change…  which I guess means I need to change, right!?!?!? The one thing I do have to say is that I am definitely getting smaller even if I am not losing weight, maybe I need to finally do some measurements.  I hate measuring but I need to change-up something to stay motivated!  Stay tuned….Continue reading “Weigh in Day 5/17/13 NO CHANGE”

Ben Tyler Trail #606-Pike National forest. 2nd attempt failed- 5/11/13

When we kind of stubbornly decided we were going to do Ben Tyler Trail (hike details here) this weekend, I knew deep down there was no way in hell we would make it to the top……. AGAIN.  It is really close to Kenosha Pass and one of the areas that probably got 4-5 feet ofContinue reading “Ben Tyler Trail #606-Pike National forest. 2nd attempt failed- 5/11/13”

Weigh in day 5/10/13 -.6, 52.2 lbs down 37.8 lbs to go

It has been a weird 2 weeks here.  I didn’t post at all last weekend because we left work early on Friday and drove up to Breckenridge to enjoy a weekend away and man did we enjoy it.  We hit the hot tub like crazy and drank way too much, while making sure we movedContinue reading “Weigh in day 5/10/13 -.6, 52.2 lbs down 37.8 lbs to go”

Riverside Trail A Breckenridge *Repeater* Hike 5/4/13

When I booked our weekend in Breckenridge a couple of months ago I thought that we would be able to do some higher hikes by this point in time.  Of course that was before the 5 weeks of blizzards and the 4-5 feet of snow Breckenridge got during April.  The last storm finished dropping aContinue reading “Riverside Trail A Breckenridge *Repeater* Hike 5/4/13”

Belcher Hill Trail *Repeater Hike*, White Ranch Park – Golden Co 4/27/13

There is that moment every week when I commit to a trail and I always hope that the weather will let us do it.  This week the trail I committed to was too high up after yet another 2 day snow storm on Monday and Tuesday.  All week I debated how smart it would beContinue reading “Belcher Hill Trail *Repeater Hike*, White Ranch Park – Golden Co 4/27/13”

Weigh in Day 4/26/13 No Change…. 51.6 LBS down 38.4 left to go

No loss this week so I am trying to focus on the fact that I didn’t gain anything either. The weather this week started out very discouraging for a hiker, with more snow on Monday and Tuesday but it did warm up so nicely that by Friday I was practically bouncing on my toes waitingContinue reading “Weigh in Day 4/26/13 No Change…. 51.6 LBS down 38.4 left to go”

Bergen Peak Trail, Elk Meadow Open space *AGAIN* 4/20/13

This week has been tough on so many levels for so many reasons and I know I am not the only one struggling to find balance and meaning.  I can tell you that the only thing on our minds yesterday was getting out hiking and getting as high as we could (altitude wise of course),Continue reading “Bergen Peak Trail, Elk Meadow Open space *AGAIN* 4/20/13”

weigh in day 4/19/13 -.6, 51.6 lbs lost 38.4 lbs to go

I think so many people are just confused and a little lost this week after so much tragedy, I know I am.  I found myself tied to the tv awaiting the  details of the bombing and then details of the horrible explosion in Texas.  As I watched all the horror, I think like everyone else,Continue reading “weigh in day 4/19/13 -.6, 51.6 lbs lost 38.4 lbs to go”

Hiking out of a Hangover – Deer Creek Canyon 4/13/13

Since I started hiking to healthy over a year ago I have been really good about not drinking on Friday nights before our hike, while it is my cheat day I never want to run the chance of a hangover hindering my hike on Saturday. That’s not to say that I still don’t get myContinue reading “Hiking out of a Hangover – Deer Creek Canyon 4/13/13”

Weigh in Day 4/12/13 -.8, 51lbs down 39 lbs left to go

Another small loss, but a loss none the less!  It was a tough week for a weird reason, I wanted to celebrate reaching this milestone but my typical way of celebrating is to eat which isn’t the way to go this time.  So all I focused on was not going over my calories each dayContinue reading “Weigh in Day 4/12/13 -.8, 51lbs down 39 lbs left to go”
