Well, it's week 2 of my end of year push for 20 lbs....and ya know how in Biggest loser sometimes they have a rough 2nd week?.....boy did I had a rough second week. Of course, this one was all my doing. I ate like I had a hollow leg! I couldn't stop! I was like a cat on the prowl, looking in cupboards, staring in the fridge. It was kinda pathetic. The only thing that I can say in my defense is that TOM is visiting....stupid TOM.....but no excuses. I still have a few more years of his visits, I have to control him!
I did have a great weekend excercise-wise. Saturday I went for a lovely long hike/geocache that was very hilly and got my heart pumping - and I found the cache! So that was fun AND I burned 1600 calories! Woohoo to that! Sunday I went to a different area to do the same thing and although I didn't work as hard or find the cache, I still burned some good calories and got in a good walk with Eliot. Plus, I mowed the lawn at a speed-walk because I was almost out of gas! lol! So even though I gained a bit, considering my gluttony during the week, I'm not too upset and I vow to do better this week!
week 1: 278.4
week 2: 278.6 (booooooo!)

Okay technically I've been at this for a while....but last week I set some new goals for the end of the year and had a good first week! I did have a couple of slipups in the paleo department but then, I'm not expecting perfection. It would sure leave me disappointed if I did!
I had a nice long hike on Saturday. A friend and I took our dogs up to Bear Lake for probably their last swim of the year and then we decided to go find a nearby geocache. I thought it would be a modest .5 - .75 mile hike.....HA! It was about that far to get there and the last .25 mile all up hill - very - up hill. The thing about up hills is, they are hard going up, but to those of us whose balance is not so great, they are a little scary going down. So I thought let's go a different way down. Not my most brilliant moment. It took us so far out of the way that we were out for almost 2 1/2 hours. And I only brought one little bottle of water for both Eliot and I. Needless to say, by the time I got back to the car I was spent. Not to mention waaaay overheated. In fact, a little nauseous for the rest of the day! And in my mind - through my blinding headache - all I could think was "Gee, I bet I burned alot of calories!" Oh well, next time I will be better prepared for sure. So on to my weigh in:
week 1: 278.4
Exactly 2 pounds! Yay! (I know my last blog I said I weighed in at 280.2 but it was a little typo!)
