So I'm going to start with the bad and move on to the good so I can end on a positive note. The weigh in:
week 1: 278.4
week 2: 278.6
week 3: 279.8
Yep, unfortunately the weigh in is the bad part. Brought on by not eating the right things and then eating too much. Once I pass a 0 (300, 290, 280) I never want to see them again. So I really need to get myself back on track. Luckily, not everything has gone to pot. The good news is the exercising is going really well! I went on the same hike I did two weeks ago (the one that totally kicked my butt). I had left my favorite flexi-leash up there, so my hiking partner and I, and the puppies of course, hiked back up to the cache we did. I could really feel that I was stronger! I didn't have to rest as much climbing the steep hill and I didn't feel like I had to sit and rest once I got to the top! Progress! Here are some pics from our hike. It was perfect weather for a hike (I still made sure to bring plenty of water this time), plus we found another cache!
We started off with the dogs having a little swim.
My two tearing up and down the path and Celeste's two off to the side.
Swimming in another spot...is that a beaver in the background?....No, just a swimming Corgi!
Eliot at his hiking speed - which is normally a full speed run.
Here you can kind of tell the size of the hill we were climbing. That's Lacey Jane, Celeste's big black dog, at the top waiting for us.

Group photo! We waited til the end of the hike when everyone was tired to try and take this one! We have Eliot, Luke, Lacey Jane and Shortie.
And last but not least - me and the boys

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!)
