This weekend was GREAT!!!!! Ron and I stayed well within the recommended range for everything *AND* we did A LOT of exercise. We woke up on Saturday morning and took Cappy for a 2 mile walk to get coffee. Then we packed up our back packs and drove up to Ojai to one of our favorite hikes. We were extra motivated to do the hike, because after running it through the fitness tracker, we saw that a 90 minute hike carrying 10-20 pounds would burn 990 calories!!!!! I don't know how it works, but with Cappy's walk and and the hike I burned 1214 calories in one day, which was double my weekly goal. The hike up was hot and dusty and when we got to our spot, there were already some people camping there. We had to spend the evening at a sad little secondary site, but that's okay. Today we woke up and broke camp, made breakfast and hiked back to the car. It felt really good to wash all the trail dust out of the car and head down the hill for some lunch. I was looking forward to some ice cream or something sweet, but when it came time to pick out my ice cream, I just couldn't get the 330 calorie hagen dazs ice cream bar that I was looking forward too. I had been working so hard all week, and I just couldn't do it!!!!! I opted for a healthier natural non dairy fudge bar. And it was just as good as the hagen dazs would have been, but I felt sooooooooo good about the choice that I think it actually tasted better.
