My Eureka Moment

Thursday, April 04, 2013

I started thinking about this after SP told me I needed to lose 50 pounds emoticon Seems to be the number I am always battling. I have tried attacking it all at once. I've tried 10 pounds at a time, but that number keeps coming back. How am I ever going to get past this?

Husband and I love to hike. We even impressed ourselves with our trek last September in Big Pine to those beautiful alpine lakes. Not bad for a couple of old farts. emoticon

Our goal: To backpack into the wilderness for a few days.

But packs and gear are heavy, like 50 pounds? My Eureka moment. I will gladly trade these 50 pounds on my body for a 50-pound pack for a trek into the wilderness!

    Yay for you! Trekking in the wilderness is a fabulous goal!

    If you are using walking as your cardio, you might want to try the same trick that my partner suggested for me --- after I lost the first 10lbs, I started walking with my empty pack on (it weighs about 10lbs), and now I am / will be adding 5lbs of weight in to the pack for each additional 5lbs I lose. This way, I am always pushing my workout and figure I'll be ready for carrying that pack full when we hit the back-country this summer.

    Good luck and have fun!
