Day 25 post resort, One more hike up and down Piestewa, shopping and another good dinner on my wife’s work.

Well each day is better out here.  I did another hike up and down Piestewa, and now I believe I have the name correct.  The peak has a very interesting history and you should check it out at Wikipedia.  I enjoy that hike and it is challenging for me since it is straight up.  I burned almost 1300 calories again which is great considering how we eat out here.  We have a scale in the room so I have been checking and have neither gained nor lost which is ideal considering how things are going out here.  I am going to hit it hard when I go home.

Day 24 post resort, Still in Phoenix and survived climbing Piestewa peak, my anniversary, and spicy southwestern cuisine.

I did a 1.2 mile vertical climb of Piestewa peak today around 8am, and it wasgreat, and fairly difficult. Most of the hikes I did at the resort were a good incline, but not up uneven rock stairs. I burned around 1300 calories on the hike and was at it over an hour and a half up and back. Really great feeling of accomplishment once I did it. Made me feel a little better about how I have been eating my dinners out here.

At Home? On my way to Phoenix! Day 23 post biggest loser resort!

Well I hate to go to the airport, but once I am through security it is great! I love to travel and going to Phoenix with my wife for a conference and it just happening to be our anniversary on the 3rd is great news! The day went splendidly (up till the end, but more on that later) since we went in Indianapolis early to do our taxes and we are getting a refund (YAY! Not paying is good for us) and that just made the day even better. Once we were through security it was smooth sailing with our nonstop flight. Good news is that the flight was comfortable for a change with all the weight I have lost. I used to need a seatbelt extender which was embarrassing but no more! Jen even mentioned how much more room we had. We got saddled with a chatter in our third seat who would talk to me across Jen who was watching a movie but such is life we survived!
