Long walk in DC

Went to DC yesterday with my friend Dan. Had a really good time even though it was extremely hot and muggy (heat index was 100+ degrees). And guess what??? We walked all day for a total of 16.31 miles. Yes, I said it! 16.31. Holy cow. Needless to say I’m a bit sore (but not as bad as I thought I was going to be). It was a great time.

Here are a few photos from our adventure. 🙂

Weight Loss Problems

Does this ever happen to anyone else? This happened to me this weekend. I thought I was going to break the guy’s back… but surprisingly he lived! Lol. I was trying to slam dunk into this short basketball hoop by my house and I couldn’t even reach that (that’s what I get for being 5’2″). The guy I was with picked me up so I could reach it and I thought I was going to break his back. Lol.

Ugh… Frustration!

First off, I wanted to say sorry for not posting last week. I was so busy with work, working out, and trying to clean for the house warming party, I was just too tired to do so.

Secondly… I hit a stall last week! Eek! Which made me sad and not super motivated to post. I hope it’s muscle weight but who knows. I’ve been going to the gym a lot more and doing weights on top of it. So I’m going to keep my fingers crossed and hope it picks up again soon. I want to get out of the 190’s. I’ve been here far too long!
