Groundhog Day

I have been so focused on the number on the scale. Everyday I step on it and there's that same nimbler 160. Maybe a tad higher, but rarely lower. I feel like the movie Groundhog Day, repeating until you get I right.
Well I've come to the realization that I should celebrate the fact that I have lost 50 pounds and have kept it off. How silly of me that I did not record the actual day when I could proudly declare I had lost 50 pounds.
Since then, I have had many NSV but rarely take note of them. Now that will change.
Starting with the fact that we went hiking on the weekend and we did a 9 mile rt hike with the kids. We all had a good time and there was minimal complaining during the hike.
NSV#2-One day, now nearly 2 w ago, I biked to work- which is ~7 mile rt. This isn't such a big deal for my fabulously fit dh, but for me I was able to overcome my fear of seeing my big butt on a bike seat- cue Queen's Fat Bottomed Girls here-LOL.
So here is to recognizing my accomplishments and taking note!

I've been remiss

Remiss in posting among other things. We've had a busy few weeks with the end of school and the beginning of summer. If you can call 60 degrees summer!
We just returned from camping in Waterton National Park. We had a relaxing time camping in the townsite and hiking. Weather could have been better, but hey, it's early summer here- it's raining while I type this.
I was able to eat okay- poor choices plan wise but it's all about moderation. Let's just say some brats were eaten and some beer was imbibed :0

But now it's a new day- a recurring theme here. I'm thinking of trying a cleanse to jump start my body. Anyone have any insight? Ever tried a cleanse? How did you feel after it? Which cleanse did you try? Any one know anything about body logix?
