So, this week Kiddo has been off at Science Camp in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Mom and I are taking advantage of his absence and getting in some hikes!
Yesterday was a nice, and I thought TOUGH, hike at Uvas Canyon park. It was a tough two miles but well worth it.
Today was a 4.3 mile hike at Canada del Oro open space preserve. We hiked up the Serpentine Loop Trail then across the Bald Peaks Trail to the East and ending where we started at the Serpentine Loop trail.
It was a TOUGH hike! Going up the mountain, was almost 600ft in elevation and took us an hour to do .8 miles! I sweat, and cussed, and huffed and puffed, but kept going! Mom was with me, of course, cheering me on all the way. The view from the top was amazing. We could see parts of Morgan Hill, all the way down to the mountains outside of Hollister. The mountains were green, the sky was mostly cloudy (thankfully!! no sunburn!!) and a nice cool breeze kept things from getting unbearable.
I honestly didn't think just a few months ago that I'd ever be able to do a hike like this. Hell, just a few months ago I wouldn't have been able to do this. I'm feeling proud of the changes I'm making in my body!
So, earlier Lynn was brave and posted her weight. So, now it's my turn. This morning I weighed myself and I'm 237lbs. I've now lost 41lbs! Hell, I lost 4 pounds just from YESTERDAY'S hike! We'll see what happens when I weigh myself tomorrow morning, just for curiosity's sake. I usually only weigh myself once a week.
So, how are ya'll doing?
