A Snowy Walk to the Lake

[PSA: "like" my blog's Facebook page to get tips and updates on my blog posts in your news feed.]

Hello to all the new readers. I hope you're enjoying my blog, and catching up on my story so far. I plan to write a more detailed post soon about the current state of my weight, fitness, exercise, eating, etc. There is work to be done, but overall I think I'm in a good place. Just not exactly where I want to be.

Today was another fun day in the mountains. We had a leisurely morning hanging around the house but eventually made our way out for a walk. We walked some trails formed by snowmobiles and eventually made our way to the lake. I'd brought my camera along because I wanted to snap some pictures of the kids and the beautiful surrounds.

So today is the last day of the kids' winter school break, tomorrow is back to the routine. It's been an activity filled month and I'm actually looking forward to a bit of quiet in January. And ideally less tempting food and drink in front of me. It takes a lot of mental energy to resist the sudden urge to indulge (giving in is stressful too in its own way), it will be nice to relax a bit.

We plan to drive home late tonight to squeeze everything we can out of this day and to make the drive back easier on the kids (hoping they'll fall asleep soon into the drive), and us. I know this isn't their last Tahoe adventure this winter, something tells me we'll be up here again. And I plan to have my ski pants fit a bit better when we return.
