After brunch I went to Jen's apartment to get some clothes! She gave me another pile of goodies, she is so good to me. I received a few things that where given to her by other bandsters, I love that, so cool!
Sunday morning I had a training session with my trainer and worked a lot on the upper body strength. I was almost in tears by the end, feel the burn!! When I came back up to my apartment Dan had made me an egg white omelet, so nice!
Dan and I have been talking a lot lately about being more active. He is very fit and athletic and loves to go hiking. Every time we have gone hiking in the past it ends in shouting and tears. I give up when it gets too hard and then we have the same argument about how I am so unhappy being fat and Dan is mad because I won't do anything to change it. The argument then "snaps" me back to reality and I realize what I am doing to my body and I join Weight Watchers, again! Needless to say, we have not gone hiking in over two years.
Well, that is until yesterday! After breakfast Dan and I went Hacklebarney State Park to go hiking. It was AWESOME! I was very sweaty and bright red in the face, but I did it. I can't believe how different my mindset was this time. I WANTED to sweat and challenge myself. I am sure the trails that we did were too easy for Dan, but he was a good sport! There were a few steep climbs, some rocky paths and then one semi-paved path. Here are some pics...
I am a hot mess in the next couple!
After all of this and the training sessions, I am very upset about the 2 pound gain this week. Hopefully tomorrows fill will do the trick and get me back on track!
Three posts in one day - what is wrong with me?! That's it, no more today - I promise!
Have a great day my little pups!
