Hide the S’mores Please!!!!

Tuesday, July 07, 2009

I will be MIA for roughly 2-3 days. Ok maybe we should say 4 days…. Once I get off work this morning, I will be packing my heart out and getting to bed sometime this evening. I don’t know if I will be showing my face back on here or not until after I return….

Wednesday my family and I are head for Maquoketa Caves. We’ve never been before, but from what I’ve heard I believe we are in for a huge workout. We plan to explore all the caves plus see the other sites in a day and a half…. There are a dozen caves and 3 or more sights that I am aware of from my research.

We plan to drive back Friday morning, since Jen and I have to work overnights Friday night…. Provided I don’t get stuck in a cave or fall off some really high spot (I’m just a little claustrophobic and really scared of heights) I plan while I’m at work that night to tell everyone all about it and bring pictures.

I just hope Wednesday afternoon and all day Thursday is enough time! emoticon

I do plan to take a notebook to write down everything I opt to eat or drink…. I hope I get it right since I won’t have my computer to officially track everything and do it throughout the day too. I know I’m not going to be holding fast to my 1550 max calorie limit because I will be a lot more active than usual but I just hope I don’t really blow it. I’m taking lots of veggies that I can eat cold which is new this year…. Last year, there would be no sight of a vegetable at any camping or picnic thing for my family… well unless you count mustered potato salad and 260 calories for ½ cup…

Now, will someone please convince my family we don’t need S’mores; the marshmallows and chocolate will be the death of me…. emoticon Oh boy am I in trouble…….

Here goes nothing… well ok hopefully something. I can do this, right?

I think I can; I think I can; I think I can; I think I can; I think I can; I think I can........

    WOW your trip sounds awesome! Me and my wife have been wanting to start hiking for the exercise, the scenery and just to get away from everything. You have a great time, be careful and drink plenty of water...let us know how it went. Oh and the S'mores would be around 275 calories for two if you used lowfat crackers and dark chocolate...yum! emoticon

    You can do this!!! Your trip sounds like a wonderful time, I love caves and Maquoketa is a beautiful part of the state. Have fun and try to avoid those temptations. I had those smores this weekend, now I'm paying for it. I must get back on track!
