February 1/3 Gone...!
Saturday, February 10, 2018
February 10th tomorrow.... 1/3 of the month, and I'm not 1/3 of the way to my goal!
Oh, but it was such a good week. "Freedom of the Hills" was the title of a book on mountaineering published many years ago...and aptly described our four days of snowshoeing and hiking the lower slopes of Mt Rainier this week. Everything from sunlit snowscapes... to misty rain in an old growth forest by the boulder filled glacial river...to bubbling hot springs surrounded by intense dark green algae growth---all that and more within five miles of the old National Park Inn at Longmire Wa. Add a few good friends, and some games and sharing a bottle of wine...and one night of "reach out and touch them" star gazing...Oh Wow. I'm really very fortunate in my Life!!
We got about 15 miles of walks, snowshoeing and hiking in this week.... so "check" on the exercise. (And my muscles and joints did pretty good..!) We shared some of our meals to keep portions better... so "check" on that part. Not very much snacking: so "check" on that.
I still probably gained some...LOL So I came home and recalculated my calorie range to lose 0.5lbs per week from now until goal weight: June 20th is my estimated completion date. Unless I really go overboard in Mexico between now and then... I'm feeling confident I can make that.
Life is Good. I hope you are feeling the same.
