Day 17 at the Biggest Loser Resort in Utah.

Today was a much better day then yesterday simply because my pants did not almost fall down my entire hike.  Our hike today was Stop Sign once again which is simply a walk uphill on a path and then a road.  I was lucky enough to be in the advanced van this week so I am with Sean and Kim and we all stayed together for the hike.  Kim and I are about the same as far as pace, but Sean has been here 19+ weeks so he was actually slowing down a little for us.

Day 16 at the Biggest Loser Resort in Utah.

It is cold here!  I ended up wearing sweatpants, which I hate, and buying gloves and a hat for the hike today.  The good news is I was warm enough the bad news is that the new sweatpants I wore had a drawstring that broke right as I got to the hike.  I had to spend the first 10 minutes of my hike making the split drawstring into a belt that I tied around my pants to keep them up while I hiked.

Day 15 at the Biggest Loser Resort in Utah.

Well Sunday is a complete day of rest here at the resort and I have to say I was very pleased with that.  It has been a long and difficult week and I am glad to be on the other side of it.  I am missing my family quite a bit, but I am lucky that I have made some great friends here at the resort.  I spent a big portion of Sunday relaxing in the hot tub and talking to friends.  It was nice to be able to give my muscles some time to heal, but my silly ankle is still pretty sore.

Day 14 at the Biggest Loser Resort in Utah.

It was a very easy day all things considered and I was grateful for that.  I am actually more sore at the end of this week then I was during the first.  My ankles, shins and now my ass are completely sore and tight whenever I stop moving.  I went on the West Canyon hike which is a fairly easy straight forward path hike with not too much incline.  I still made it about 7+ miles on it while walking and talking with Kim so it was a good workout.

Day 13 at the Biggest Loser Resort in Utah.

I feel much better today as far as my ankles and shin splints go and that has helped me quite a bit.  I fell asleep last night at around 8pm completely exhausted and just worn down, but I had iced my ankles and shins and I think that helped out.  It was an overcast day and since they were worried about rain/snow the hikes were all changed so I did not get to do Camelback like I wanted to, but we did a new hike called Middle Gila.

Day 12 at the Biggest Loser Resort in Utah.

Today was a rough day physically.  The pushing myself hard the last two to three days trying to explode out on some hikes has cost me dearly with my poor muscles.  I now have shin splints (my front calf muscles are just seized up mostly and in pain) and both my ankles are swollen and sore.  I bought a brace for one ankle at Target yesterday, but of course now both are sore.  Fun stuff I tell you, but I am trying to keep going through the pain.  We had a HUGE wind storm all day yesterday and our hike was changed to the other side of St Georges to keep us out of it.  The hike was not too windy and I enjoyed it even though there was only three of us on it today.  We went to Third Ravine and went extra far.

Day 11 at the Biggest Loser Resort in Utah.

This was probably one of my best days here in Utah for several reasons.  The first one was that I made it all the way to the top and back down to the bottom of stop sign which is about 8 miles (4 mostly up!)  I really pushed myself and felt very rewarded afterwards.  The other great part to my day was having a meeting with the life coach here at Utah (Jen) and getting some real work done toward the emotional side of my eating back home.
