So I finally worked out this week. One of the reasons we chose our new house is because of how close it is to one of my favorite hiking trails. With my crazy work schedule and the extreme summer temps in Arizona, the only time I can get in a hike is before I take the kids to school. And since we leave the house at 7:30, I have to get up, drive to the trailhead, hike, drive home, take a quick shower and head out with the kiddos. When we lived 30 minutes from the trailhead, there was no way to get in a 1 hour hike, plus 1 hour of driving, plus a shower before 7:30. Now I’m less than 10 minutes from the trailhead and so I can get in a good hike before taking the kids to school and heading to work. I had hoped that my hikes would lead to a big loss on the scale, but it just wasn’t meant to be. While I did lose weight this week, it wasn’t quite what I hoped it would be. But a loss is still a loss.
Last night I went to a Color Street event and the focus was on the fall pantone colors. While it’s still hot as blazes here, I was so excited to throw on some booties and this Quetzel Green shirt.
I got so many compliments on my outfit and quite a few people commented on my weight loss. It made me feel really good…especially since the scale is still not cooperating.
This week, I lost another .8 pounds. I really want to get back under 200 pounds. I’m not sure what the problem is, but I’m just going to keep plugging away. Eventually I will reach my goal. I just keep reminding myself that this is my year to get healthy.
