Halfway there!

Good morning folks!

Can you believe that we're half way through 2013 already??  Where does the time go??

We had another great weekend at the lake. We took Brad and Kayla, our middle son and daughter in law with us this time. It was their first time going to Lake Tenkiller and it was obvious they love it as much as we do. I knew they would! Its been a while since we've all gotten together and I kept noticing how much Brad and his dad are alike!! I'm fairly certain a good time was had by all!!

This is a short week for me. I work Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. We're going to spend the Thursday - Sunday at the lake. I'm hoping that Brad and Kayla will be joining us again. My meal planning this week is for meals at the lake. I like to try to keep it as healthy as I can but that can be a little difficult. Here's what I'm planning and I'm still looking for ways to incorporate more veggies :)

Thursday:  Steak dinner in the crockpot with corn on the cob and baked potatoes
(I may do some squash on the grill to go with this and increase our veggie intake)

Friday:  Pulled pork sandwiches with potato salad or macaroni salad and homemade coleslaw

Saturday: Burgers and brats on the grill

Lunches are typically eaten on the boat and we usually do sandwich wraps because they are easy to make ahead and easy to eat. I need to bring chilled fruit for a cool, sweet treat too

I struggle the most with breakfast. Yesterday, we did breakfast burritos with scrambled eggs and sausage. It was super easy and fast. I could do that again but I'm pretty sure that they don't want to eat that for 4 days in a row!! 

Fitness is going to be a challenge too!!  This is my Insanity recovery week. I'm taking my laptop and dvd with me but I might have to resort to the 7 minute workout or something like that. There are a lot of good hills and hiking trails, so maybe I can get in a few running miles as well.  Tonight, I'm running with my Pathways group. They're about 3 weeks away from their goal race and I'm so excited for them!!

Well, that's all I've got for now. I've gotta go get ready for work. Y'all have a wonderful Monday!

Be awesome today!!

What are your favorite summer camping/lake foods??
