Day 59:195.5
Miles last week: 10.5

I stepped on the scale 3 times this morning... making sure it wasn't broken.. but its not!! I finally hit 195.. I am half way through the 190's. Oh Yeah.. Uh-HUH... Oh yeah... uh-huh!!

I'm actually in shock because although we had a pretty active weekend, I ate terrible. Let me start at the beginning.

Saturday morning Hubby decided that we needed to get out and enjoy the unusually warm weather we've been having. So we all hopped in the car and drove for an hour before reaching a secluded canyon. The water was running clear... but freezing cold.. so we didn't hop in.. but we definitely enjoyed being outside! I took my camera and was getting into taking pictures... I took this one of a butterfly:

which my youngest daughter chased down until it was too tired to fly and she caught it:

She had a pet butterfly for the rest of the day.. until he finally met the ending all insects meet when caught by a two year old.

Hubby took his fly rod and tried some fishing.. and so did the girls.

We hiked around a little bit and then jumped back in the car. We stopped at a small burger joint I had never been to. I tried to eat healthy but was absolutely starving. So I had a burger... and fries. That night I only had a bowl of cereal though... I had to try and make up for that indulgence.

Sunday we did nothing but lay around and play video games. It was actually a lot of fun. Even the kids got into cheering us on... At the same time I was too lazy to fix healthy meals.. so we heated up some leftover Tamales (wayyyy toooo fattening) for lunch and then grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner. YIKES.. Like I said, I am shocked that I actually dropped weight after this weekend.

Well.. whatever the reason.. I am back on track this morning. I wogged (somewhere between walking and jogging) 2.5 miles and did 20 minutes of Forza. This week is my active rest week.. meaning no weight lifting.. but I still have to be actively doing something!

Inspiration this week:
This Thursday night is my date night with Hubby... I want to look good in my Wranglers!!!

Great job! It is so much fun to see that lower number on the scale. Too funny, getting on and off to make sure it was real. I do that all the time. Your pictures are beautiful! What a lovely family.

Thanks for your encouragement today. I know it's only temporary. =)

That sounds like a great Saturday (minus the ahem BURGER!). ha ha. I love how you make up for your indulgences. I do that too. If I drink wine, then I only get to eat cabbage for dinner or something silly like that. But hey, it works.
