Let's see, it's been a couple of weeks since I last posted. I have started to go to the rock climbing gym again! The past 2 weeks my friend and I have gone 2x a week, as scheduled. It's been really great to get back there and have some exercise, something to work on, and some time to socialize. I think we are both enjoying it, I just hope that I can keep this going.
I also went to the gym 2x this week. It felt good to get back in and accomplish some real exercise. I've been so flakey lately and I'm realizing that I just feel happier when I make it to the gym. It's been hard to maintain motivation because I don't feel like I'm moving towards anything, just kind of the goal is to get there. I'm still working on finding some other motivation that will get my to exercise.
Another adventure I had was mountain biking yesterday. It went really well! I made it to the top of the mountain for the first time. Every other time we make it most of the way but after a really steep stretch I just couldn't go up. I felt much better rested and felt great in that stretch and to the top. It felt really great to make it up there, and see the cool sights!
Food wise, I still have some work to do. I haven't been doing as much mindless munching, but I still do some. Nighttime snacking is just the worst for me. Morning and daytime I have no problem avoiding snacks, but for some reason as soon as dinner is over I am in the pantry scrounging around. I think if I can nip that I might have a fighting chance of losing weight without calorie counting. I've also considered doing a diet plan where you buy premade food, but it's expensive and I know I don't need to do that. I've lost 50 lb before without it, and now I'm just looking to lose 30! No problem right :)
