Well, not exactly my backyard but close enough. D and I went with our friend Jamie to Theodore Wirth Park and walked around Wirth Lake, Eloise wildflower garden and bird sanctuary, we then of course while there walked around the Quaking bog. it was a great day, not exactly humid but warm, and we walked about 4 miles or so for 2 hours enjoying nature and loving the outdoors. We even got to see Minne the Lake Creature in her new summer home of Wirth Lake. Which was the motivation for me to get out and enjoy the outdoors.

I have no idea how this happened. I weighed myself this morning, like I usually do one of the day's during the weekend. My Scale SAID 176. That is 8 lbs since the last time I weighed myself, (which was actually 2 wks ago) I haven't made it to the gym, I've been working and running around at work, that my steps are increased and I've been opening the store more often. Which means I'm at work at 4:30am. I weighed myself 4 times to make sure always the same number. The scale was in the same place, on the kitchen floor, and I was as usual not clothed. I'm going to take it, and just hope by next weekend, I don't jump way back up and am disappointed. I know my clothes are falling off of me, so I think the scale is pretty close to where I am. Also I think this weigh in just brought me down to just overweight and no longer obese. according to the bmi crap
Correction: I still need to lose 2lbs to change categories.

The feeling of guilt is upon me. I had a week of vacation, and with that my healthy lifestyle took one too. I didn't mean for it to happen, it just did. I did get a lot of walking in, but I knew it wouldn't be enough. Now my vacation is over, I feel bloated, and gross and of course FAT!! I hate the FAT feeling, I know I did this to myself, I made the wrong choices, and now my consequences are here. I worked so hard, and I feel like it was thrown away.
I can make excuses,:
~We were at the cabin, I had to have s'mores. I should have just had 1 not the amount I had.
~I wanted icecream so I went and got a shake at Arby's What I should have done, was run to cub and find a healthy alternative.
~I wanted Chocolate, Should have just had a bite of chocolate not the whole bar or 2.
~It was my TOM.
I know how to do this the right way, but why did I choose the other way, and now I'm feeling like crap. I'm suppose to go to my boyfriends family's house for dinner tonight, but I'm not sure I'm up for it. I know we'll be having a lot of unhealthy food, (except the salad) and I need to get back and start eating better, and exercising more than just walking.

Officially I've lost 20 pounds and couldn't be more happy about it. I'm fitting into clothes better, or not so good if they were a larger size and they are falling off or are too baggy.
I hit that 20 lbs this week, even after the last 2 wks I didn't make it to the gym. I still watched what I ate, and with all the running around at work, I managed to shed that last pound and reach a goal.
I have a vacation this week and will get back to they gym scene and work out. Hopefully work will settle down on catering and I'll be able to make it to gym after my shifts in the following weeks to come and lose another 10. I work on 10 lbs goals and only focus on that, instead of the whole picture. Today I'm going to Duluth and I'm sure there will be a lot of walking again but it will be better since I'm outdoors and not in my little store at work putting in 3 miles in 9 hours there. I'd rather put 3 miles in a shorter time, and not be at the store.

OH my gosh, this week has sucked. We were down our baker, I worked more hours than I wish I had, I'm scheduled with over time this week Our work week is Wed-Tuesday. Too many hours, lack of sleep TOM and Easter all combined. I over ate, I wanted sweets, and chocolate. I gained 2 lbs back and I feel like crap about it, because I know I did this to myself and instead of my usual getting to the gym I made it once and ate like crap all week.
Today, I'm having friends over, we're having a healthy pot luck I'm making two things from Spark Recipes and we're having other salads etc..
I'm hoping to get back on track, because gaining it back sucks.
