40 Blocks

We walked 40 blocks yesterday. I couldn't believe it. We did it we walked 40 blocks and 20 of that was up hill. I am so impressed with myself and my husband. I think its an amazing thing to know that we can do what we set our minds to.

So lets go back about 2 months ago. I know that if I had said sweetie lets goto Pike Place Market via ferry and then walk 20 blocks in one direction up hill all the way would you do it. He would have said NO and we would have driven around to Seattle and then driven to the store I wanted to goto. Then eatten at the same resturant and had the same calorie intake without the output.

So what we did was I decided t ogoto Seattle and walk the 20 blocks to the store thats 1.2 miles in each direction. Thats 40 blocks thats way to many footsteps to count. Thats 3 maybe 4 stops along the way because we ARE fat. Thats one well earned dinner.

Thats what we did yesterday. So dinner was amazing. We had an apatizer artichoke spinach dip with bread, I had fish and chips. and we split pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. Ok so lots of calories but we didnt have those calories during the week as well. And we didnt have those calories without exercise, what we did have was one amazing meal and one great workout.

What I didnt get was any weight loss yesterday. BUT I did not gain any weight yesterday eighter. I saw 4 lbs gain lastnight before bed then i was pissed all that and 4lb weight gain but I got up this morning and had 0 weight gain from yesterday. So what I weighed yesterday mornign I weigh that this morning. AMAZING.

I am so proud of myself. I have a new job and a new outlook on life and a new grandchild all in one week. This is an amazing feeling. I am so proud of myself did I say that already.

Oh yeah and as my husband pointed out last night We did all of that and I did it in pearls I wore my peral necklace yesterday. So yes in pearls I walked 40 blocks.
