Happy weekend everyone!
I woke up this morning with a slight surprise from the scale. It's not much but it's more than I expected and I'll take it!
Current Weight: 209.6 lbs (-0.6 lbs)
Seeing as I was feeling bloated and I didn't get much exercise in I was happy to see results even if it wasn't much.
The only exercise I got was working my arms while belay-ing kids up our tower twice this week. I went on a hike once and ... that's about it.
As for water I did ok but I was definitely dehydrated more than 3 times this week. I scrounged through my car this weekend and found my 64 oz water bottle. Perfect timing! That thing is so useful and easy. All I have to do is finish that water bottle.. maybe twice and I'm set for the day.
This week I got a little crafty and I created a small poster with a list of the reasons why I'm on this weight loss journey. I'll take a picture of it this week. I posted it on my wall right across from my front door and right above my desk, so that I can see it every time I walk in to my room. Nice~
I've been looking over The Spark; not really reading it thoroughly but going through it to remind myself of good habits and give myself some motivation.
This morning I got a great treat and I went on a trail ride around the mountains surrounding my current home. This was the second time I got on a horse and I was able to survive and have a great time. Talk about an inner thigh work out! Riding a horse (or in my case a mule. LOL. ) takes some work even if the one exerting most of the energy is the animal. LOL
When I get a chance I'll take a picture of the couple of horses I've been on so far as well as the poster.
I'm going home this week and I will collect my red Christmas Challenge dress and try it on again. I haven't lost much weight but it would be a good reminder of why I'm in this challenge to have the dress with me rather than two hours away where I can forget.
Thank you for all your support. I'll spend some quality blogging time doing my part!
