Fat fat fatty

Well the last couple of weeks have been rough food wise. Poor choices, my addiction is the cookie dough we sell at work. Man it taste a-maz-ing!! Pizza and coke are also an issue. I work in pizza and could eat it everyday, some weeks I do. Today was my anniversary so a lot if yummy meals and alcohol. I'm running another 10k dirty dash in September with my two teenage sons. So tomorrow begins the recommitment to my diet and the gym. I always tell people the easiest way to lose weight is to not gain it in the first place. I wish I would have lived by that when I was younger and making all kinds of bad dieting decisions. I wish I knew how to make myself a more determined person, I try and I hope that counts.

Fifth Water Trail

We decided to go hiking with the kids and some friends yesterday. So we hit up Fifth Water Trail. None of us had been there before but it looked cool and leads up to a hot spring. 
Looking at the distance (2.2 miles one way) and the elevation gain (570 feet) I thought it was going to be an easy hike with a gentle incline. It was actually a lot of up and down and some narrow trails. That being said it was still a fairly easy hike. We took a few breaks along the way and about a 30 minute break at the top. Just hiking time was around 60 to 90 minutes round trip. Had I been thinking ahead I would have brought more than one bottle of water per person, a lot of the hike is in direct sunlight.
