On June 17th we drove up to Skagit Valley for our first walk with the Wonder Walkers, a short term summer group from our church. The summer plan is a different walk in the Puget Sound area each Saturday until the end of August.
Dear and I had never been to this part of the Valley.
The weather cooperated with us and it ended up being a walk that we didn’t need jackets for.
I should have taken my longer camera lens and the next time we go I will. That’s a Heron on top of that bare tree.
This area borders the Skagit Bay and the Skagit River.
This is a walk we’d like to do again since our time was limited and we didn’t walk down every path.
We are about 24 hours from Summer Solstice. The sun did shine here today. I hesitated to share but I’m on another kick to drop several pounds. This time around I am not weighing myself until I see some improvement in my body profile. I was brave enough to take a photo with my phone and when things look different I’ll weigh in and go from there. That will take a while. The reality right now is just to scary for me to attach a number to by stepping on the scale. My first goal is for my jeans to be roomier. After I reach that goal I’ll set another one. Dear and I are not eating anything after 5 pm unless it’s out of our power like celebrations. We also are limiting certain treats if we don’t hit at least 4000 steps on our fitbits. We are aiming for 10,000 a day. I’m counting calories but Dear is not. You won’t hear anything else from me on this subject until I reach my goal.
Enjoy the beginning of our summer season.
