So, I will be watching out for that kind of thing and I looked to conquer a new challenge for myself- a 1000 calorie exercise session. Some of my heros- my loseit friends who are absolute exercise machines- do that with astonishing regularity. Most of them manage that by biking or using the elliptical or arc trainer- but I wanted to do it with my walking. I, after all, have gotten most of this weight loss by walking and walking and walking..... So I figured out a long loop that is 8.3 miles, according to the map on runkeeper, but the GPS figured it out as closer to 8.6!!! (you can see the map by following the link) And indeed, I got a 1007 calorie burn from that little trek. And I sort of wish I hadn't walked for an hour the night before, as this one definitely kicked my rear! Wow, I would have gotten into a car with ANyONE if they would have stopped during my last mile!!! :) But I did it and I am so pleased. Now that did not translate into a weight loss this morning, but I am going to continue to be patient and give it time.
Oh! And I got some great pictures, plus there are some other ones from my SLR camera that I had forgotten I took! BONUS!!
