Gym
Stretching
Supermans
Took me over 1/2 hour at a 15 degree incline, to a vertical height of 1367 feet, with an average heart rate of 144 bpm, on the tread mill, to burn off those 4 cookies.
Jaccuzzi, sauna, shower, shave.
Thanks for reading
Good night, have a nice weekend.

At one point during my last week of vacation I was 251 lbs. was probably starting to loose weight then just out of fear. So a week and a couple of days I started back to work on Mon. the 9th. I walk for more than 5.5 hours everyday, I walk pretty fast, that's just me. So I was also eating a lot less than normal. But following the Monday after the 9th I was at 240 lbs, so I have 11 days until the end of the month to get to 130 lbs, which was the weight I was for a while. When I started on this forum I was around 220 lbs. So I have 210 lbs in my sights.

Indian Gathering was awesome. Got to participate both a Yuwipi Ceremony and a Bear Ceremony. I admit that I did smoke the pipe, and ate meat for the first time in over 4 years. It was a split second decision. When past to me I asked what it was, It was a mixture of dried deer and berries. Well it was all part of the ceremony, so I took a tiny bit and past the bowl. I have very little, if any regret on my choice, nor do I care what anyone else thinks.

So anyway the food was plentiful enough. Besides the salads both vegetable and fruit I ate a can of refried beans, some pecans, My chia pudding with a lemon squeezed in into it, and to many pretzels.
I weighed in at 233 lbs late last night when we got home.

So far today I made some corn bread and ate too much, plus a bowl of mixed vegetables.

So I have a couple of days to get back to my goal of 230 lbs.

I hope you have a nice week.

1/2 mango.
