I was so happy to be hiking I jumped for joy… nah I would have done a jump shot even if I wasn’t hiking, they’re classic.
I went home to visit my parents, see a few friends and truly the number one thing on my list was to go for a hike. My dad took the day off work and we decided to do an easier hike since I had to drive home after and my knees where really bugging me that day so we did this Nihahi Creek. I have done this hike so many times I couldn’t tell you how many fingers I’d need to count. It’s a flat walk on an easy trail for about an hour and a bit and then finally you get to go up hill for all of about 20 minutes (tops) but it’s so worth it to get to the top and find “God’s Playground” or the creek bed.
So today is also weigh in day and I’m just gonna say I knew it wasn’t gonna be good, because Ryan and I had his mom and step dad’s 50th birthday party. Which meant so much food and booze (man do I love beer, damn it) and not nearly enough exercise. I did manage to get Ry to run 5km with me on Saturday before the party but it didn’t help me out too much on the scale this week
Current weight: 149 lbs
so that’s+3 lbs, but truly I’m not to worried. I’m under 150 still which is always the struggle and back to my actual calorie counting today so I’m feeling good. I’m working day shift for the next 2 weeks which might make me struggle with the working out part of my life as I tend to wake up between 8-9am and then workout anywhere between 9am-2pm, but right now I’m working during those hours and THEN have plans most days after work, but trying to make them semi active plans at least not just plans to eat. Go me! does anyone else struggle with fitting in workouts around their work hours?
I got fat because I was too lazy to get up when I worked 9-5, and then to tired to workout after work. It was an excuse of course, but I find it much easier on my shift work schedule to actually work out. BUT since I’m only doing this 9-5 thing for 2 weeks I’m going to get up at 7am and run for minimum 30 minutes before I have to get ready for work and then do my long run on Friday morning when I’m off.
