Barb's going camping.....
Thursday, August 31, 2017
I am going camping for the holiday weekend. Yikes! I am not a camper. My idea of fun does not involve sleeping outdoors in a tent. However, I am doing it this weekend for three nights! My kids, grandkids and I are headed north. We will be spending Saturday on Mackinaw Island (eee gads - think mackinaw island fudge), Sunday in St. Ignace and Monday walking the Mackinac Bridge. The grandkids want to go horseback riding on the island - but I think I am going to opt to rent a bike. I'd prefer to pedal than sit on a horse!
I am going to work hard on moderation - not depravation - after all this is a vacation. However, I have already decided NO fudge will be making its way home with me. I may have a sample in the store - but I am not going to buy ANY! If I don't bring it home, it won't tempt me!
I was a little discouraged by last week's weight gain. Camping will be a great challenge. I am bringing chicken breasts and some turkey taco meat with me - so I will have healthy options. I have fruit, nuts and cheese for my car snacks. There will be no Twizzlers on this road trip. However there will be meals out - where I will be challenged with healthy choices! There will also be bike riding on the island and the 5 mile bridge walk so it won't be all sitting!
I think I can do this without wandering too far from my path! Have a safe, fun holiday weekend to those celebrating!
I won't be weighing in on Monday morning - as I will still be camping - but Tuesday I will post my progress!
