Losing Weight in the Desert

Among my goals for our time in Dubai, I thought that it would be a good opportunity for me to lose the baby weight and in my own words, 'get hot,' even though I realize there was no pun intended with that expression but it seems funny now that I am living in the desert and somehow ended up here in the SUMMER!

What I  realized in the first few days was that it was going to be hard to accomplish this goal being that the local population is fighting obesity and diabetes type 2 with modernization of lifestyle and diet, to name a few: having to drive everywhere to get around, being in AC all day, can't go outside much at all, and the plethora of sweets and other great carb. foods. This is an equation for disaster. I guess that sounds like Texas and most of the US. Conclusion, I need to find a near by gym, buy a treadmill, and/or walk/run at ridiculous hours. I am also considering making the spare guest room a workout/baby play room/guest room. I could probably also go early in the AM to Dubai Mall or Mall of the Emirates with tennis shoes and walk a lot. Another thought.

In my brief attempt to pick up the newspaper at our front door before breaking a sweat, I realized at 6:30am the weather wasn't too bad. My computer read the temp was 95C.  So I decided to take Rex out for a small walk. There are a lot of walking/biking paths in our neighborhood and even a small lake between our neighborhood and the next one. I walked for 25 minutes and and it wasn't bad because of the breeze and the sun hadn't made it too high at the time. I don't know if I got lucky today or it is always like that at 6:30/7:00am.

I will continue to try to find ways to lose weight in the desert...
