New weekend new adventure!

Monday, August 11, 2014

Stayed at the cabin this weekend. Took a 6 hour 4 wheeler ride, saw some beautiful sites and best of all found a newly discovered (at least for us!) huckleberry patch! If you've ever picked huckleberries you know how valuable finding good patch of berries is!! All I'm saying is,it's up "No tell em' gulch!!" ha ha

Hiked into this pretty high mountain lake...

Found this little guy lookin up at me....

View from the top of the world! Too bad there is so much smoke from forest fires to see clearly but Canyon Ferry Lake is in the background....

Much needed weekend in the wilderness!!

Monday, July 28, 2014

A much needed camping/hiking weekend was just what the doctor ordered! Ended up in the Bob Marshall Wilderness,,breathtaking!! Rivals Glacier Park in it's beauty... the best thing is, it is only 1.5 hours from my house!! Feeling Blessed emoticon

Stumbled upon this awesome waterfall.....

Hike to the top and overlook Gibson Reservoir....

Sun Canyon River....

The COOLEST thing was finding this fossil along the river...looks like a shell??? Anyone know anything about this kind of thing?

Of course I can not pass up an opportunity to photograph wildflowers!! My favorite "Indian Paintbrush"

This was at Canyon Ferry Lake the week before....calm before the storm!!

Your other pictures are nice, too.

    Great pictures. Thanks for sharing. DH's cousin used to be a ranger in the "Bob". Most of his work was on horseback. Poor fellow, but then somebody has to do it, right?

Everything around here is FLAT. I've loved the few times when I had the chance of seeing mountains and waterfalls. (sigh)

End of 3rd- 5 week challenge
Well, we all reported in our end results of last 5 week challenge (06/03/2014 thru 07/08/2014)

This time we ranged from a 5.5 lb loss to 1lb. to 0 weight loss. I was at a 2lb loss. At one point it was closer to 3 lbs but than the 4th of July weekend happened!! emoticon
I did learn some things this time around. Even though I manage to hit all my daily goals 75% of the time AND followed my workout schedule of cardio/strength 86% of the 35 days, I still only managed a loss of about .4 lbs per week!! So clearly I need to have a bigger calorie deficit. I learned that even if the Spark Calorie counter says you have 300 calories left at end of day, you don't eat a bowl of ice cream to use it up!! emoticon

So my goals for next 5 weeks ---07/09/2014 to 08/13/2014--

1) Lose 10lbs emoticon

2) Do all scheduled cardio/strength training workouts
*** 86% of the time or better is the goal *** emoticon

3) Stay within my Spark Calorie Goals - --plus maintain a daily 350 calorie deficit-- (something has to change!!) emoticon

4) Track all my fitness/nutrition.

5) Try and hit all these goals 80% of the next 5 weeks emoticon

I'll report back here after Aug. 13th. My reward to myself for accomplishing all this is, extra spending money for my vacation on the Oregon Coast!! A girls gotta shop right??!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Good luck with your challenge. emoticon emoticon

WOW!! Talk about inspiration!!

Saturday, June 14, 2014

Didn't really realize this till a few days ago, but the Governor's Cup Marathon is today & part of the long stretch, goes right down our country road!! I didn't want to be in their way, so I did my workout inside, on my elliptical this morning. I did go out to cool down & was able to see these fabulous, amazing people doing what they do,,going for their goals. There were all types,,young, old, fast, slow,running, jogging, walking, men, woman & kids!! You see the fast ones come in big packs and than the slower ones are spaced out...but either way, I just wanted to cheer and encourage every single one!! They were ALL such an inspiration to me. I think about my own goals, my struggles and my victories over the last year...I'm sure they all have an amazing story to share!!! Thanks to all of you out there pushing through and accomplishing your goals,,your an inspiration to me!! emoticon emoticon

So just wondering....

Sunday, May 25, 2014

We took the 4 wheeler out for a "nice" little ride...well that's what my hubby said,,,next thing I know were way up high on a mountain peak,,snow packed, with lots of melting snow and MUD and we got stuck,ON A CLIFF!! ,,,hhmmm so much for a relaxing ride,,,!! We were able to maneuver out of that mess but not before I about had a anxiety attack!! So.... I'm wondering if being scared senseless counts as cardio?? ha ha emoticon

But,,the one bit of revenge I got was on Saturday. We took the boat out for the first time this year and did a little fishing,,,well needless to say I out fished him!! HHMMM???? Maybe that's why we took that mountain road today?? emoticon
