We went camping on our new property for the long weekend. It was WONDERFUL! I'll have some pictures to post, but may not be able to get them up for a couple days. I have a couple on my camera, but need to see what my daughter and MIL got too.
The weather wasn't 100% perfect, but I still loved every minute up there.
Didn't do as much exercise as I had planned. Never got on the bicycle, and I never got out in my running skirt - it was a bit cold for it. We went out on the ATVs alot though. Did a ton of exploring of the trails near our property. I think you can go forever if you wanted to. I am going to absolutely LOVE living there. Did alot of walking too.
We did run around the block once - the 4.5 mile/7 Km block! With an elevation decline & incline of about 350 ft (100 Meters). Let's just say it was a slow run, but one that once I master it, I will be a much faster & stronger runner for doing it. It actually wasn't as hard as I thought it would be and I can't wait to do it again. Great training!
Camping/holidays are always a challenge. So much food, most of it not exactly healthy. But I didn't do too bad. We had burgers one night and I cooked myself a veggie burger. Had steel cut oats for breakfast one morning while the family had sausages, eggs & pancakes. We even did a big waffle buffet style breakfast with bacon, eggs, waffles, and a bunch of other stuff and I just took a reasonable portion. No need to overeat just because I'm on holidays.
Another thing I found helpful was to keep active. Sitting around doing nothing invariable leads to mindless eating. Get out, go for a hike, go for a ride, do something! The worst is sitting around the campfire and someone brings out the munchies. Not one of us needs it. I try to bring out fruit and/or veggies, but often get beaten to the punch and someone usually brings out things like nachos, chips, cheesies, cookies. Guess I need to be a bit more pro-active when out with others, huh??
We have another camping trip coming up next month (that I am so excited for I am almost sleepless!). I need to take this same attitude into this trip. It will just be us this time, so I'll have more control over the mindless munchies. Note to self: just because you're away from home doesn't mean you need to eat any different! It should be a pretty active holiday so I'm not worried about that.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
And someone ... please send me some sun!!!
