And I loved every minute of it. Even when I wiped out on my bike going off road in the sand - it was fun! Doing things I had never done or rarely done. Challenging myself. Feeling strong.
|Thanksgiving Day Hike - 2015|
This shot above was from our last hike of the week. Scrambling up and over the sandstone to watch the sunrise into the canyon. Breathtaking (multiple meanings :) )
Onto the numbers for the week...
Not only was I able to stick to my nutrition plan. I hit a high in terms of hours working out per day - that's on average 3.7 hours! Plus the most wonderful part about it was that I wasn't sore at all. Thanks to some great stretching out and massages! I am estimating that I lost 2 pounds this week - will probably play a bit of catch-up when I really weigh in at the club on Thursday.
Check that out - average daily steps of nearly 25K!!! WOW
Looking at it from a different perspective - with all the hiking up the mountains - I averaged 58 flights of stairs a day (this is going up only, my app doesn't count down as work.)
That's one active holiday. I'll have to search for the next adventure because I really enjoyed this one.
only 5 pounds from 100 pound loss!
This morning I pulled on my dress slacks to decide that they were too big - that's a size 12 that doesn't fit. It's a good day.
I can do this!
