Wednesday (14,484 steps) - Oh hey, another morning of sleeping in! I didn't get in any exercise today, as we were skipping run club. I did, however, figure out how to change the watch face on my Fenix 3. Boy, is this cool!
Friday (14,911 steps) - Dropped A off at Rose's house. Why? Because already the school is having a "flex" day, and the school wasn't offering any child care even though half the kids have the day off. I had an insanely busy morning getting a big filing done. The office closed two hours early (YAY), so I went to REI to pick up some last minute gear before the weekend. Managed to make it to a 4:15 barre class, then went to my friend's son's 19th birthday party. Headed out early since Lisa and I planned on getting up insanely early to go hiking.
Saturday (20,837 steps) - Did I mention insanely early wake up? 2:51 am to be exact. Left the house by 3:15 to pick up Lisa at her house, for an estimated 2 hour drive to Kite Lake. The drive took a bit longer than expected. First, because it is REALLY dark in the mountains at that hour. Also, the dirt road to get there was a tad junky, but that's kind of the norm. We parked when we saw the line of cars, grabbed our gear and headed out just after 6 am.
First hot, then cold, lots of taking off the packs and putting back on to be comfortable. I always forget how challenging climbing is at super high altitudes. We arrived at the summit somewhere around 9:00.
Sunday (14,748 steps) - Slept in about as late as I could, then went to barre at 9:30 with Maureen. The class seemed extra hard. I guess because I was sore from hiking? After class I walked over to REI to get hiking boots. Hopefully the problem of sliding down the mountain can be avoided with better traction.
I finally heard back from A's scout leader, she would be dropped off at home after camp. I went home, did laundry and watched TV while I was waiting. She got dropped off around 12:30. We went to lunch at Tokyo Joe's, went to the music store to get the supplies for orchestra, went to the REI up in Westminster where we bought #allthethings so that A can go hiking with me, and finally went to Target to get groceries.
Monday (20,827 steps) - We planned on NOT setting an alarm. What THAT meant was that we were both still in bed after 8:00. After we had breakfast (eggs and pumpkin pancakes), we didn't get on the road for Waterton Canyon until 11:00. The lot was very full when we arrived, but we managed to get a parking space. IT WAS HOT. This is why I run early in the morning. We did about 6 miles out and back, seeing a few bighorn sheep, but so high up on the rocks that we couldn't get a decent picture.
- 114,757 steps
- 6.5 miles run
- Walking, 4 barre classes and HIKING!
- Current weight - 123.6. Been a lot more conscious of what I'm eating. I did have burgers a few times this weekend, but I tried not to snack as much over the weekend. I had cheesecake and a bit more beer than I should have, but pretty much in line.
- Apparently, due to budget cuts, my firm has decided to host this year's holiday part at the house of one of directors. This does not sound fun to me. I plan on skipping it.
- I went a little berserk shopping at REI. Need to rein it in!
