Off Topic – Climb to Conquer Cancer


This is only loosely related to weight loss and healthy eating.

My company sponsors it’s employees every year to participate in the Climb to Conquer Cancer at South Mountain in Phoenix. The event was last Saturday and for the 2nd year, my son made the 6 mile walk up the mountain with me. It is a bit over 1000 feet of elevation gain. We took the bus back down which is an option for the walkers.

He did great! He’s 6 years old and loves hiking and ‘working out’ with Dad. I never restrict his diet or try to get him to eat like I do. As he gets older he and will talk more about eating and making educated choices, but for now it’s all about him having fun and developing an appreciation for being outside!
