Happy Monday

Monday, May 20, 2013

So my weekend was crazy and I did not get to post anything. I took my son's cubscout pack camping. I rained off and on from Friday through Sunday so we had some wet children and parents. We did manage to go on a 3 mile hike and we also did geo caching so the kids had a blast. Lots of fun things to do around camp. I ate healthy because it was all camp food. Foil pack dinner, eggs in a bag, etc.

I did however suffer a few aches and pains from my camping. My lower back is not happy today and an old injury in my foot flared up. So I am hoping to be back to my old self in a few days but I am moving slow. So far today I have had cheese toast for breakfast and a clif builder snack bar today. Not many fruits for veggies so far, but I am hoping to make up for it tonight.

I am struggeling with my water consumption so I have to REALLY make an effort to do better. This is not a new thing it runs in the family. My Grandmother can make her glass of water last from her lunch throughout the entire day. So I am trying to form better habits with drinking.

    Sounds like a blast! I used to hate water until I started carrying around a water bottle with me. Now my husband calls it my baby bottle since I don't go anywhere without it! What really helps is if you get a good water bottle you can just throw in your bag. Ours are contigo from costco which are fantastic and rarely leak!

    What did I take away from your post today? Cheese on toast! Yumm! Guess it's time for me to get some breakfast. LOL.

Hope your foot and back feel better soon.

    Drinking enough water has been hard for me too. When I started I never drank plain water! Now I average 6-8 glasses a day. My grandkids were at Cub Scout Camp this past weekend also and it rained really hard yesterday! Grandma is glad she had a nice dry place to sleep. After keeping up with the kids this weekend you deserve to take it easy!

    Your camping trip sounds like fun : ) I used to struggle with water. Now I try to get 4 in early. Some days are easier.

    Glad to hear your scouting trip went well. I hope you're feeling better soon.

I find spicy food makes me drink more water. When I'm particularly hungry before meals or between meals I have on Brach's Sugar Free Cinnamon hard candy; which helps my sweet tooth and makes me drink a bunch of water. Also, water tastes better right after you brush your teeth.
