Many times, too many actually, in the past several years I've made the drive between Denver, CO and Salt Lake City, UT with my preferred route being Highway 70. Although I grew up in Utah (I haven't lived there since I was 19) I pretty much took for granted the amazing scenery all around me, so these trips have been my tutorial in learning to appreciate the spectacular grandeur and breathtaking beauty of the Rockies and the desert. I'm always fascinated by the amazing geography and vistas, particularly the mesas or plateaus that one sees on the drive for mile after mile.
I must confess though, that I'm not amazed by the plateau that I have reached in my efforts to lose weight. I'm tired of what I have been eating, I'm desiring what I'm not eating and I wish that exercising didn't take up so much time and then leave me feeling tired. I had hoped to reach my weight loss goal by the end of July now I'll be lucky if it's August or September. Yep, I'm feeling flat!
I know this will pass but I must admit, I prefer viewing plateaus in the desert rather than being plateaued!
