Vacation Report

Monday, August 31, 2009

Well, I won't bore you with more details about my backpacking trip - it was fabulous and inspiring and soul-filling and, if interested, you can visit my facebook and see some pictures of it:

And, in retrospect - maintaining my weight was a big "no brainer" - I backpacked 40 km with a 40lb pack, ran 11 km and walked/day hiked 34 km - an 85km week! I almost couldn't eat enough for fuel, never mind weight gain! So, I came home with a 3 lb weight loss.

So, commitment to myself met! It doesn't matter that it was easy to do in the end - all that really matters is that I did it. Yeah me!

Back to day to day life.

    Thank you so much for sharing ! I was just reading some of your dehydrated food items to my BF. If we ever do a trip like that we're going to make our own (I may need to pick your brain later about how much to take)
    I would much rather have home cooked items w/o all the chemicals too !

    Fabulous! I looked at the pictures. Remote and awe inspiring. And I'm sure a great time together with your DH. I am inspired to ask if my DH wants to join me losing wieght and getting fit. We were amazed that his insurance rate will drop $20/month if he loses 20 pounds. Now THAT is inspiring. I'm sure he would hike with me more if I asked.
