Hello everyone, welcome back!  We are at week 49 of the long journey.  It’s been a fantastic week.  I’m feeling pretty good about what I have done this week.  Here is the breakdown.

Week 48 Goals Check:

  • Stay Hydrated -A- I drank tons of water
  • Maintain a 500-calorie per day deficit -A- Nailed it!
  • 10,000 steps a day -D- I got in three days.  I only got one day in there
  • Get out of my chair for a spin around the block three time a day -B- I need to better here.  I have been very focused and busy at work, but not so much that I can’t afford to get up and walk around.
  • Meditate four times per week -A- Done!
  • Go to the gym at least three times this week. -A- Fuck yes, I did!
  • Reflect on my goals every day and keep my vision board updated -A- Daily!

  • One hiking/adventure day per week -A- Hiked up to Upper Horse Tail Falls with a group of friends.  It was only a .8 mile hike, but it was all up hill!
  • Lose 1 pound per week -F- No loss, no gain…. WTF?!?!

There you have it.  I didn’t get my 10k steps per day, but I haven’t been being lazy about it either, I’m still getting lots of walks in, I’m just still trying to get my stamina up with it since I have been hitting the gym.  I am very happy and excited about hitting my gym goal for the second week in a row, that one is super tough for me, but I’m doing it.  I have my workouts dialed in and I’m starting to get in a groove.  Just need to keep this up to make it a habit that I look forward to doing, not there yet.

The hike this weekend was beautiful, but pretty challenging for me.  It was a total 0f .8 miles, .4 of that straight up 400 feet.  It took everything I had to truck up the side of that mountain, but I did it!  It was totally worth it, so gorgeous.

This week I’m going to keep striving to get my 10k a day back and continue to goto the gym.  I’m focusing on the gym more because I think it will do me more good in the long run, but I don’t want to ditch the walking, that is good for me too!

I’m not sure what to think about not losing any weight this week.  I feel like I have been working my ass off.  I know this is the long journey, not the you lose all the weight in a week journey, but come on, give me something!  Oh well, I will keep working hard and fighting the fight!  Well,  that is all for now folks, tune in next week for a new installment of the long journey.  Love you guys!
