I am taking a day off from hiking. Susie and I discussed how we needed some motivation to lose a few more pounds so we have proposed a challenge to make it happen. I have known for some time that I need to get into the gym and do some weight training, and sit-ups to get some muscle tone. So my goal is to lose 5 lbs. for each of the next three months until we leave for Spain. Seems pretty doable, aye?
