plans are changin...

I had a healthy weekend of hiking and biking planned, but it didn't quite turn out that way. On Friday I got a phone call asking if I could watch my niece for the weekend. Of course I said yes because I love that girl. I don't, however, think she would make a great hiking companion. Instead we went to the zoo in the morning (we did hike it up to the top of the observation tower which was a bit of a struggle for me but she ran right up with no problem). In the evening we had a tea party for her and a couple of her friends. Sunday morning she went home with her dad and I was back on track doing my weekly weigh-in and day three of couch to 5k.

OK.. the details. The weigh in was less of a success than I hoped losing only 1 pound this week... making it 258. But at least it's another pound gone and I planned about 2 pounds a week so I am still right on track. The run was great, although I am supposed to move on to the week 2 podcast I think I will do this one a couple more times this week and move on to podcast two on Friday.


  1. She is so cute! Having a great day out like that is so good for the soul which surely must impact our bodies in a good way.

    Meh, to the scales, they do that sometimes - next week will be much better!

  2. At least it's a loss! Glad you had fun with your niece - sounds like it was a very active weekend!

  3. One pound is one pound. Congrats! But, I can related to it being frustrating.

    I take my niece (who's 5) and my nephew (5 1/2) biking and hiking with me. It takes a little longer and isn't as much of a workout but they really enjoy it! :) I also have a 2 1/2 y/o nephew and take him biking but not hiking yet. :) I'll also go walking while they ride their bikes.

  4. Welcome to the HYC! Sounds like a fun weekend. Congrats on working the C25K!
