I haven't blogged in over 2 months, not much of a blogger actually, never know what to write?

So January 1st, I got serious for the 4 millionth time, but this time I had solid reason to lose, 12 days in the Mayan Riviera....No way was I going feeling how I felt! So I made a goal and away I went, one major difference this time, hubby was on board too! So we started off really strong and sorta fizzled a bit in the middle, but overall have stuck with it.

Hubby is down 39lbs from 264 to 225 and I am down 23 from 213 to 189.8, I really wanted to lose 35lbs, but things just didn't go as planned. In the beginning of March I started taking a Bootcamp twice a week and since then I have stalled weight loss wise, I have lost inches but not pounds. I just haven't been able to figure out the right mix of calories in vs calories out for me, but you know what I am OK with that! I am happy with how I feel and feel pretty good clothed...not completely satisfied with the bathing suit bod, but I kinda feel like the trip was just an excuse to change, I have no intentions of going back now.

So we leave in 13 days now, of course I am going to keep focusing on my goals, but I have so much to do before we go!!!!

Last night we went to a BBQ and we were chatting about a popular walking trail and one of my friends mentioned how when they were on the trail last they could hear something following them in the bushes, and they were scared. Then another friend started saying that it could be a cougar or bear and away we went, then DH said it could have been a person, so by the end of the conversation I was nervous about the whole situation. I use this walking trail 2-3 times a week...ALONE!!!

So this morning when I popped awake at 6:00 and debated if I go on my walk or not, and you know I almost let fear control my life, but I didn't. I got up and dressed, laced my shoes and just went. I did not see a sole the whole time, which almost made things worse, my imagination was running wild with all the terrible things that could happen to me and on one would know what happened (everyone was sleeping when I left the house). But I just went, and when I left the main road and stepped on the trail I felt that instant happiness that I always feel on the trail, I don't know what it is, but I feel instantly happy there, so I just went.

Honestly I almost always think about bears when I am out on the trail, but the cougar fear was new, didn't like that since I am terrified of cougars. But honestly I worry more about creepy humans than animals and I refuse to let fear rule my life!

Wishing all the Moms out there a Very Happy Mothers Day for tomorrow!

    Wow! Those are some awesome inches you lost! And remember, a pound of muscle takes up less space than a pound of fat - so you are now more compact!

    I hate when fear starts to creep in like that! There's a path that I can use on Saturdays but it's almost deserted during the week so I'm too scared to use it. :/ You're braver than I am!
