Hey guys, I’m back from my 7 day “hike in the woods”, the foothills trail was amazing, no towns, no way to resupply food, had to carry everything on our back…but got to swim in waterfalls everyday! I took four of my kids and we had a blast, super hot. Started in Georgia, ventured into SC, NC and back into SC to end. Oconee State Park to Table Rock. I was convinced I had lost ten pounds but actually had GAINED!!! For the first time since November I had days on end of not watching carbs and actually inhaling them (for the hike and simple meals where you just add water), to me the only way I could have done it.
Looking at my Garmin App (Garmin scale)
my last weigh in before my trip was Monday July 13 at 138.4…
We started hiking July 14th
Came off of the trail and got home at midnight on July 20th.
On July 14 I weighed 143.7 (I weighed myself 4 times and the scale was consistent tho I don’t always trust my Garmin scale) So that was a GAIN of 5.3 lbs in 7 days after some pretty tough hiking!!!
So I’m going to attempt to ADF again, starting today…
I did weigh in today with two VERY different weights.
When I weigh on my Garmin I do so about four times to make sure the number is the same.
Three weigh ins put me at 137.2 and then that drop seemed so large I tried again and three weigh ins put me in at 142.9…thats a five pound difference, and when I weigh I get the same result three times in a row.
So we’ll see how this pans out…
Glad to be back, missed you guys!!!
