This is my very first blog entry. It's kind of intimidating, I won't lie. I enjoy everyone else's blogs so much and they are so motivational that I have to try one for myself. I think I'll just discuss the issues that I'm dealing with and depending on the day, they can be plenty. So here goes nothing!
The thorn in my side lately has been camping. I know that sounds funny, even to me, because I love to camp but I have never camped and tried to eat healthy at the same time. My parents decided to get the type of campsite where you leave your trailer there year round. This means that we can camp any time we get a free night. This has turned out to make my family's summer much more exciting. It's a cheap way to get away from home and enjoy the outdoors. The kids love it! My fourteen month old likes to find the dirtiest part of the campsite, sit on her butt, and see what she can slip into her mouth without anyone noticing. So far I've only had to fish out an acorn... she's so fast!!! This is her in the swimming hole. She had a blast.
Okay, now to the dilemma. For some reason my brain goes into vacation mode whenever we go camping. This means I don't keep track of what I'm putting into my mouth. It's all of the bad stuff that goes along with camping. Stuff like hamburgers, ice cream, and s'mores along with the fast food meal we grab on the way down there. I need to figure out how I can spend the weekends away and have fun, without always going over my calories. One good thing about getting away, is that I do get a lot more exercise! If I'm not chasing my kids around I'm hauling at least one of them in a wagon.
I would post pics of the twins but I couldn't get them to stand still long enough to get a good one.
Thanks for reading my very first blog. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it'd be. :) I hope you are all having a great day!
