Weigh in Day 9/6/13 -1.2 lbs, 58.6 lbs down 31.4lbs to go

7 Sep

I am both surprised and thrilled with this loss… the week was surprisingly hard but I think that the extra hike on Monday really helped me balance all the weirdness that happened throughout the rest of the week.  Tuesday Morning I couldn’t get up early and work out, not for lack of desire but I slept through my alarm and then on Wednesday our power went out in the middle of the night lasting most of the day so no workout in the morning again then I ate something bad for lunch which landed me in bed the rest of the evening.  Finally Thursday, I had to get up super early for an appointment and so my elliptical waited until after work.  I stayed on track with calories in and getting in my other workouts but I know the hike on Monday made all the difference!  It makes me wish I lived just a little closer to some of my favorite hikes to do after work during the week.  Ahh well maybe one day!

I can tell my love of hiking is not lessening but in fact growing into a lifetime of activity, it will be part of my future planning for sure!  Plus look where I live, talk about inspiring!

Weigh in Day 2/8/13 -2.4 Lbs, 46 Lbs down, 44 LBS to go

I was pretty thrilled this morning when I stepped on the scale, I had been expecting a loss but not one this big.  It is still losing the same 5 pounds I have been gaining and losing for the past 6 weeks but I am super proud that I lost so much.  I changed it up just a little in our workouts, I still did my 50 minutes of Elliptical in the morning Monday through Thursday and my almost 3 mile walk before lunch at work 4 days but at night we only lifted weights.  The week before we only walked and didn’t get in any weights and I know weights are really important but I always make excuses not to do them.  Next week I will make no excuses not to do them, I want to keep up this downward moving trend!

It is a great way to jump back into my goals. Our hike was great today and I felt really strong throughout the whole thing, I can’t wait to tell you all about it!
