Those of you that read this blog--even if you've just glanced at the archives--you know that I LOVE to bake/create sweet treats. I am famous for my cupcakes--my pumpkin heath bar cupcakes have been called "the best cupcake I have ever had"--by my former boss. Well with my new goals and new life direction I was feeling kinda sad that I wasn't going to be able to bake anymore--because who wants that temptation in their house? When I bake it is usually for others in the first place. I never just bake a batch of cupcakes or cookies for myself but once they are done and before they go out the door somehow you lose track of just how many you ate and how many were given away.

I have been struggling since I moved to Lake Placid to get into a regular workout routine. In SLC, I would hit up yoga at 24 Hour Fitness at least 3-4 times per week and if I wasn't doing that I was running on the treadmill or getting my cardio in. The thing about gyms is that you can workout rain or shine. Here in LP, there is no 24 HR-which for me is honestly a tragedy! So I decided I was going to run outside, which is a good idea until it rains every other day--or lately everyday, which means the last few weeks I have gotten a good run in on Monday and then the rest of the week it just doesn't happen. Take today for example, I was ready to go and then around 3:45 a sudden storm hit, including HAIL and really strong winds that lasted quite a long time--long enough to dissuade me from hitting the trail. Yes I could run around town, but there is something about running in the trees that just makes me so much more comfortable--probably because no one is really watching you run, I am super self conscious about running in public. Anyway this predicament lead me to search for gyms--and yoga studios. There is only 2 yoga studios here and one of the studios only offers classes during the day and the second is a Bikram studio which I do want to try but it's too pricey for this girls budget right now...

Today after work I drove the hour to Plattsburgh to look at some couches since I am currently chillin' and watching TV on an air mattress :(

As promised this is my accountability space for this journey. While it pained me to weight myself in the middle of the week (I usually like Mondays)--today is the first day of July therefore time for the report of how June went and how much weight I lost.
My June goal was to lose 12 pounds. I almost got there. I lost 9--which is pretty good but still a tad dissapointing. Here is a recap of weeks 3, 4 and 5.
Fairly uneventful-I discovered this week that I need to find a way to get cardio indoors because it rained ALL week during the times (after work) I was going to go running outside
Crazy week in Colorado-I could not have been more exhausted when this week was over. It was great to see all the athletes and people that I work with all in the same place, and we all know the love I have for the Colorado Springs OTC--but those were some of the longest days of my life. I didn't make the best food choices this week--can we say gooey brownie cake and frozen yogert at the OTC?
This week--still trying to recover on the sleep scale from last week--came home exhausted most days and couldn't get my sleeping scheudle back on track. I hope to use this weekend to rest and reset!
Bring on July--less moving, more unpacking, and puppies coming to live with me at the end of the month!
