Hot 100 Update
Cucumber Gap Trail - GSMNP
November 2, 2010
This will be a very short post for the purpose of reporting my Hot 100 Challenge progress this week. It's been an easy going week with respect to my goals and my eating. I have eaten in a healthy way, but I'm well aware that I am eating more than I can on a regular basis if I expect to make any headway toward my goal. I also believe if I continue in this way, I will eventually begin to gain.
Here are my goals and my report:
1) Reach my goal weight of 138 on or before February 28, 2011. I have changed this goal from December 31 to the end of February. I hope to show a good loss by December 31, but it is really important to me to reach goal weight by end of February and have a couple of months to settle into maintenance before we leave for Prague in early May.
2) I will eat nothing containing white sugar, white flour or trans fats. Not perfect, but o.k.
3) I will walk 10,000 steps every day or an average of 10,000 steps over seven days. Done
4) I will not eat between meals or after 7 p.m. Done
I am hiking tomorrow and really looking forward to it. Our weather has been incredible this week. I was up in the mountains today with a friend and saw that the trees in the lower elevations are still quite beautiful. The hike I am doing tomorrow is 10.3 miles and is a trail I've never done, so I'm excited to add some new miles to my logs. This hike will put me over 250 miles toward my goal of hiking 300 miles in 2010. Only 50 more to go! Pictures to follow......................
What are you doing this weekend?
