68 Day Challenge: Day 4-6

Monday, April 28, 2014

Days 4-7 proved something to me that i already kinda knew. I over eat on the weekends. I still got in my fruit and vegetables, but over al i ate more than i should. Was it terrible food? No...but even too much of the good and healthy stuff racks up the calories.

April 25th (Friday) was Day 4:
I walked 3.34 miles

It was closer to 90 degrees so here I am as always taking in the air conditioning before i start my walk:

I'm always rosy cheeked after a walk:

April 26th (Saturday) was Day 5:
I walked 10.74 miles

Waiting in my car at 6am for my friend to show up so we can begin our walk:

We walked through much of Grapevine, TX and walked around a vineyard...

Then we walked around Lake Grapevine for a bit:

Then we went to the Botanical Gardens in Grapevine...

Back in the car after a few hours of walking.

April 27 (Sunday: was Day 6:

As another part of this challenge is my weightloss. Here's where i stand:

Starting Weight: 319.8lbs
4/14/14 267.8lbs
4/21/14 264.8lbs (-3.0lbs)
4/28/14 263.7lbs (-4.1lbs)

What are my goals for day 7?
* walk 3-4 miles
* strength train for 20 minutes
* eat under 2000 calories
* burn around 3000 calories

(I use a fitbit so those calories burned are my calories burned for a 24hr period of time NOT just during my workouts)

    Pretty gardens! I don't know how you do so much in that hot Texas weather. I think you deserve extra brownie points for sticking to it in spite of the adverse conditions!!!
