What's not to love?

...about CAMPING!

Most of you know that my family & I have recently found something that we all love to do together and it's camping! We've invested in a nicer, larger travel trailer since its something we do often and this past weekend was our first trip with it :-)

The reasons we love camping:
It keeps us active as a family because we spend most of our time outdoors walking, running, playing games, swimming, fishing, hiking and riding bikes! There's never a dull moment until we lay down to sleep! As long as you're outdoors and moving, it's a step in the right direction right? RIGHT!

This particular trip was a challenge because it was hilly! So my morning runs were up and down-which was great but something I'm not used to!! Definitely made me work HARD!
I am looking forward to races coming up, it's been a while but I have a 10k this month and then a few for May! My pace has improved so much and I seriously give a lot of credit to the clean eats!

And for the food pics, those were prepared as soon as we came home today! It's a yummy strawberry salad-I love these, can ya tell? And a hard boiled egg. simple & delicious! But honestly, we prepare really good, healthy & clean foods while camping! It's almost frustrating when you pass other campsites and they're frying bacon, making campfire biscuits and chugging OJ but hey...that's life! Temptation all around!
Stay focused this week and remember that YOU are in control!

And then a Pinterest-inspired dessert/snack!
*My boys LOVED these...
Bananas, sliced in half
Spread each banana half with all natural pb and then crumbled cereal- I used Special K protein but I bet Kashi go lean would be really good too :-) my boys were saying, "Mmmm" with every bite and my husband & I were too!
