Going Camping

Friday, June 05, 2015

So as I'm getting ready to pack for our weekend camping trip. I realized I wouldn't have an opportunity to come on the website again till Sunday. I'm a bit worried about how well I'm going to be able to stay on track this weekend. I know there will be plenty of ways to workout, but will i do them? Camping is so relaxing its hard to make yourself do extra work. I've been trying to rid myself of doubt so I leave in a good mindset to do so. I know the food will be a bit high calorie so that scares me too. Looking back I wished I gave myself for time to think and plan to make this weekend as easy as possible. Lesson learned. I will definitely do better next time.

Thats about it for now. Got 10min on my gazelle this morning and walked while my daughter rode your bike around the block twice. Going to try and get another 10min on the gazelle and a mile walk in before we have leave because between the drive, set up, and supper, I don't know if I'll have another opportunity to workout after we leave. So have a great weekend everyone.

    Depending on how you "camp", your exercise can actually increase in subtle ways! Do you have a tent? Consider the exercise moving and setting it up...moving and setting up your gear, the cooking gear, the chairs...putting it all away at night... and my very favorite: how far do you walk to the bathroom at home??? LOL
    Keep yourself busy exploring instead of "just" sitting and snacking; portion control your food...and drink lots of water!! Above all, ENJOY yourself....!!

    I found that camping was a great time to squeeze in a little extra exercise since it's so relaxing. Just walk around the campground and chat with other campers to add a few steps, do a little weight lifting with the cast iron pots, just add bits of extra movement of any kind while having fun! Hope you have a wonderful trip!

    Camping is always a great opportunity to see where you are really at without any distractions, take this weekend to focus on clearing your mind of stress and worry! Good luck!

    Just take it a day-at-a-time, a step-at-a-time. It's daunting when a new situation arises and you have to alter the new habits you've established! You can do it. If a "fail" happens, you dust yourself off and continue on your way!

    Even if you're not sticking strictly to what you're 'supposed' to do, even the break from it may be helpful. Try not to stress out about it, eat but don't overeat and try to get in some exercise when you can. A few days without the stress of putting EVERYTHING down may be just what you need! Have FUN!
