I'm walking my a$$ off. REALLY! I am! Today I walked to the beach and back. That might not sound like much unless you know that the trail to the beach and back is 5.5 miles AND it is a trail that goes up and down sand dunes AND I'm carrying... Read more

Let’s get honest here. I’m stalled. And it is not because my body has reached some mysterious plateau. I’m stalled because I have not been staying below my caloric intake max. I went on vacation the 1st week of April. The day be... Read more

This lifestyle change happens one step at a time. Being outdoors. Being healthy and fit. Eating right. Exercising. Today a silly contraption called a scale told me that I weighed the same as last week. That’s ok. I’m not t... Read more

Today we hiked the Saugatuck Dunes State Park. It’s about 7 miles from home and we hike it often. I had a new appreciation for it as we hiked it today. It is every bit as beautiful as the National Park that we drove 4 hours to hike on Tuesd... Read more

I wish that you could see the true colors of these photos. For some reason when I put my photos into a blog, they fade. If I click on "edit blog", the photo shows up with great color in the edit box. Anyway, imagine water in brilliant shade... Read more

This was the view looking back at Glenn Lake from the top of the 1st dune. We were just beginning the hike which was 3.5 miles round trip. The park brochure said it was a 2-4 hour hike round trip, depending on your fitness level.... Read more

Going Down is it's Own Challenge

I made it up in record time! Just 6 minutes! The fastest I ever did it last year was 10 or 11 minutes. And look at the view! Well worth it both to realize how much progress I've made in my fitness level and to see the Saugatuck Harbor from ... Read more

Today was the 1st time in a year that we climbed these steps to the top of Mt. Baldhead. It's 282 very steep steps straight up. Looks pretty daunting from the bottom. Just like this weight loss journey, though, it starts with one step. One... Read more
