Geocache Diet – Day 15

959 Geocaches – 2395 km on foot – 90lbs – 350 Days! I am actually losing weight doing the geocaching diet.  I just did my second weigh in and I am now 10 lbs lighter than when I started two weeks ago.  When I came up with this challenge I knew it would be a lot of fun, but I… Read more →

Geocache Diet – Day 12

I think I am getting fatigued from 12 straight days of geocaching as I am making some stupid mistakes.  I attempted a cache the other day which has multiple stages.  Part way through I entered a way-point into my GPS which was to lead me to a location where I would find the final coordinates for this geocache.  This was… Read more →

Geocache diet – Day 11

969 Geocaches – 2426km on foot – 96lbs – 354 Days! I had a great morning.  It was not raining, it was a comfortable walking temperature, 5 geocaches were found quickly, and I hiked 7km in a beautiful forest.  This was the kind of morning I envisioned when I first thought up the geocache diet.  The trail did not lead me… Read more →

Geocache Diet – Day 8

977 Geocaches – 2449km on foot – 96lbs – 357 Days! I have officially started my second week on the geocache diet.  I had my first weigh in today and I was happy to see the scale reading a little less than a week ago.  I knew that I had lost weight, even though I slipped up a little at the… Read more →

Geocache Diet – Day 7

On Day 4 of the Geocache Diet I mentioned not liking geocaching where I could be caught it the act.  Caching in the dark is another activity that is outside my comfort zone.  Unfortunately since I am unable to geocache mid-day every day I have to go out first thing in the morning or in the evening.  In Canada during… Read more →

Geocache Diet – Day 4

I fell in love with geocaching around 8 months ago as I enjoy getting outside and exploring new areas on foot.  While hiking and exploring are definitely something I love to do there is one part of geocaching that has been a real challenge for me.  I do not like to draw attention to myself.  I would love to do… Read more →

Geocache Diet – Day 2

994 Geocaches – 2487km on foot – 100lbs – 363 Days! That’s a bit better.  Today I attempted 4 caches and found all four.  I did not waste nearly as much time looking for caches today as I did yesterday and I didn’t have to make the tough decisions to give up and move along.  I hate giving up on… Read more →

Geocache Diet – Day 1

998 Geocaches – 2494km on foot – 100lbs – 364 Days! I had my official weigh-in this morning marking the start of the Geocache Diet.  I am not comfortable stating my current weight as it is a sensitive subject to us out of shape folk.  It was pretty intimidating today as I was staring at the scale and seeing 100lbs… Read more →

Geocache Diet – Day 0

Oh….the day before the day it begins.  You can almost taste the excitement in the air as tomorrow I begin my journey towards my ideal weight.  There are so many questions to be unanswered, so many adventures to experience, and so many stories yet to be told.  I’m sorry….. I got a bit carried away.  Today is just the day… Read more →
