This morning I took a short hike up the hill behind the house to retreive a water tub for my horsey. Then walked around the place - maybe 20 mins total? After missing my last 4 hikes, I got winded a bit fast - that sucks, I guess loading and unloading furniture and boxes isnt the cardio workout you would think.

I've had a bad week and eaten a lot of unhealthy foods, and haven't exercised, but I still lost a pound! Although I didn't eat very MUCH in a day, so I guess the calories came out to less than I thought.

I have never been this excited over one pound. Haha.

Today I played DDR for 15 minutes. I know it isn't much but I re-thought my plan, and I'm going to take smaller steps instead of leaping into things. Right now I'm working on getting back into the habit of exercising, and then I will focus on increasing the amount of time I do it. So I'm proud of myself for losing a pound somehow, and for exercising at all today.

I'm down another pound! *is proud* :dancer:

20 minutes DDR today-- could have gone more but I did have to be at work on time! :D

Also, I've come up with a Plan. I planned out good, healthy meals for the next five days-- and if I follow that plan, and exercise every day, I'm going to reward myself with my faaaaavorite board game ever: Betrayal at House on the Hill. ( It's seriously fun, and never the same game twice!

I figure five days is a long enough time for it to be challenging for me, but short enough to stick with it. I'm not going to weigh myself again until after my five-day challenge is done.. hopefully I'll be down another pound or two!

Well we adopted a little pug puppy a couple months ago so I have been walking almost daily. I usually take the little guy out two or three times a day for 15-20 minutes each time. If I am ambitious we go for one longer walk about 30 minutes. We named him Java and he is my little baby!

Here is a pic of our little guy...

What a cutie! :D

Sunday 30 minutes of yoga.

Cant remember if I hiked on the 12th, but on the 13th we did all our wood for the winter - about 3 hrs of walking the field and chucking the wood into the dump truck then about 2 hrs of loading it by wheel barrow to the shed to stack - DH and I took turns hauling and stacking- it was a total arm workout.

Last Monday hiked in the rain with a 20+ lb pack, no walk on Thursday

Hope today and next thrus for sure since Sat going on long backpack hiking overnight - brrrr

Well I have made a commitment that once I have lost 10 pounds per my Weight Watchers weigh in that I am heading back to the gym. As of last week I was down a little over 6 pounds so we will see how my weigh in goes tomorrow. Until then I am still walking Java everyday.
