Hike it off and full body explosion workout


Hello again!  I am back after another camping trip!!  It was short and sweet.  2 days in the Uinta mountains of pristine beauty!  It has become a tradition with my brother.  We are on year #4 of annual campouts!  We enjoyed fishing and throwing rocks in the lake, yummilicious camp food, fires with smores, games, songs, and HIKES!!  My outdoorsman brother that I love to brag about being a marine, member of the SWAT team, cop, and detective took us on a tour of the wild outdoors!  We climbed up and down hills and rocks, hiked through fields of flowers, and overlooked a breathtaking view of the mountains and lakes below.  Truly a gift.  Here we are:

I will try to post again before one more trip we have next week to Bear Lake!  If not, keep it up!  Here is my new favorite song!  LOVE.  Run Hard!






O.K.   Everyone knows that going on vacation takes major WILL POWER to eat healthy!  I’m hear to say I survived a few days of total junk food around me (not to mention my favorite junk foods) and didn’t eat any of it!  If you know me, you know that TAFFY is one of my favorites!  So, Rob and my brother both brought a GIANT bag of taffy!  Smores are also a big PLUS in my book and the kids had plenty of those and MORE.  I’m liking how I feel after a WEEK of eating CLEAN and LOW SUGAR a lot more than eating sugar.  Imagine that?!  I made sure I brought plenty of fruits, veges, protein bars, and protein shakes and I drank a TON of water!!!!  Here are a few pics from the trip.

A HOT and flies everywhere hike!

Super comfy after 2 hikes!

I shouldn’t be smiling here. This was a TOUGH hike with a 3 yr. old on my shoulders!

Me and my cutie William!

We had a great time!  It’s nice to get away from “real” life and enjoy the great outdoors.  Super calming and invigorating to me!  I am ALWAYS up for a trip!  ANYWHERE!!  I did miss a few workouts.  We did about 4 miles of hikes.  We got home today and Rob and I worked LEGS.  Always a KILLER!  

Here is the food for the day:

4 whole wheat pancakes, eggs, hash browns, 1 bacon, 1 sausage, OJ

Protein spinach shake

1/4 of grilled cheese

Protein shake

2 healthy cookies

Vege, ham, cheese omelet with 1 egg and 2 egg whites, cottage cheese with blueberries

One other thing that helps with the CRAVINGS is to have a HEALTHY alternative.  I found this GREAT “cookie” recipe on pinterest!  Check it out!!
