Okay, so Friday I took my two boys and we went to a weekend camping event. Friday we set up the tent, hauled our gear, and generally made our "home" for the weekend. Walked all over the campgrounds, helped with the planning of an event, and generally was active. But none of it was formal "exercise" My pedometer said I took 20,157 steps on Friday and 19,299 on Saturday. Sunday was only 13,112, but that included almost 2 hours of drive time.
The event was fantastic. I probably have not shared here on Sparkpeople, but all three of my kids are involved in a Live Action Role Play (LARP) group called Amtgard. It is a medieval/fantasy game where you run around and hit people with foam "swords" arrows, spell balls and such. I didn't participate in the fighting because it was 90+ degrees, but I did help with the "Iron Chef" competition. I made sure participants were drinking, and I cooked breakfast Sunday morning for my son's fighting company because that meal was not provided. I came home exhausted but happy. I got to connect with people that I only see once a year at this event.
