25,000-29,999 SparkPoints

Hanging Lake

Saturday, June 01, 2013

I ate around 2,000 calories yesterday, but I also hiked up to Hanging Lake with my dad, so I'm not too worried about it. The hike wasn't that long, but it was pretty much a vertical climb over lots of rocks. Totally worth it though; as you can see, the view is gorgeous. We actually made pretty good time, and afterwards I still had a lot of energy even though my legs were shaking. I'd forgotten how much I love hiking. I mean, I've been doing a lot of walking outside on this nature trail we have around here which is pretty great, but nothing beats a good hike. I really, really hope we get to do a lot more of it this summer.

ETA: It looks like SparkPeople increased my calorie limits from 1220-1550 to 1360-1710. Do any of you guys know why it did that? I can't seem to find an answer.

    It was great that you had a chance to enjoy some time with your Dad and hike together. That is a beautiful destination to arrive at!

    What a beautiful photo! I'd love to see that lake, where is it?

SP will adjust your calories if 1) you achieve goal weight, 2) you increase exercise.

    You are exercising more, so SP has increased your allowance. Change it back, or ignore it. Your hike looked lovely, I wish I had somewhere like that around here.
