walking, eating and some of this and that.

This week has been pretty good so far and I am looking forward to Friday because I suspect that there is a possibility that I can dip back down to that lowest weight again and hit 344 by then. To hit 344 pounds again I will have to have a 5 pound loss this week but I believe that if I stay on track with the food for the rest of this week that I can get there with a shake of luck and good food choices.

This week has been extremely wet outside so getting exercise in has been a challenge, I even walked in the rain last night because I know that I need to get movement into my days or else I am not doing my part to maintain an ever slimming waist line. I am currently using walking as my main source of exercise for reasons that will be mentioned at a later time so I need to stay consistent with going out and making sure that I am walking at least 25 minutes 4-5 times per week. The weather warming up has also opened up more chances to go hiking, if only the rain would stop! and Wify has agreed to come with me and has even said that we should make a "regular date" to go hiking so that we go often and I have to say that I was happy to hear that from her and am looking forward to getting out in the woods with her. I mentioned in an earlier post that there was a bit of a snafu with a pack that I ordered and as soon as the new pack arrives I will have the means to go on longer hikes and I plan on filling the pack up with whatever I will hike with and wear it when I go on my walks as well for conditioning, so to say that I am looking forward to getting the new (correctly colored) pack from the guy in the brown truck is an understatement at this point.

Over all my intake has been pretty good this week and I am eating a pretty well balanced mixture of meats and veggies lately, I also remembered recently that I love hard boiled eggs made into egg salad! so I have added them back into the menu. I am starting to weight train with light dumb bells on a more regular basis now as well and because of this have decided to add a Whey protein powder to the days that I use the weights at least for now, I may decide that I do not need it or feel that the calories are not worth the extra protein and go with just eating more meats etc and get some extra protein that way but for now its the powder. My hydration has been perfect this week besides Saturday when I forgot to make green tea so it was just water and not as much of that as I should have consumed.

There is a break in the drizzle right now and since I have to push the little one in the stroller I am going to head out for a walk before the rain starts back up, so this post will end here. don't forget that H2O and of green tea and remember if I can drop the weight by sensible eating and exercise so can you. Thanks for following along and all of the support over the last 16 months or so, and remember kids, keep that hand out of the cookie jar!

As Ever


  1. You will see your lowest weight this week, believe you will!

    It was funny reading that you wanted to your Wifey alone in the forest. It made me laugh.

  2. You should be so proud of yourself! Your weight loss has been wonderful! I appreciate your no whinning, just the facts approach to your diet blog. Keep walking! It seems to work for myself, as well as so many others. I love walking, and I love walking TO places. I have yet to try hiking, but I am intrigued by that. Good luck, and I hope that it dries up for you so that you can get yourself outside in the sun and warmth!

  3. reasons to be mentioned at a later time?
