Fitness Log Week 9: Hikes, and heat…

Hikingsandals

This week was another holding pattern…unless I uses my weight from 2 days ago.

Weight:  I am at 197.7 lbs. right now, a loss of about a pound from last week.

Eating/Diet:  Really, it was so hot–over 102 ever day here in Redding–that I could not eat that much.  I did well this week, even though the Green Room for our worship team has become famous for gourmet breakfast.

Exercise: My knee is getting even better!  So, I went on two hikes.

  • Monday:  Hike to Whiskeytown Falls.  3.4 miles, 90 minutes and 650 calories (ALL up hill).  Page went with me…which is good since he knows CPR.
  • Thursday:  Hike to Brandy Creek Falls.  3 miles, 90 minutes and about 500 calories. (mostly up hill).  My son, Ethan, went with me.  Good times.

Obviously, once again hiking works great!  Let’s see how I do this week. How was your fitness this week?

  1. Long story short, but I’ve moved to a different town recently. It’s much flatter and has many more bike paths than my previous town, and I’ve been taking advantage of it in the mornings to get some biking done. There’s a butte just within riding distance that I need to conquer before winter sets in. That’s my next goal.

    No doubt! This area I live in is one of the most beautiful places in the world, as far as I can tell. I just cannot stand the 105 temps…but whats not to love.
