Wow what an incredible week up at Forest Home Family Camp! This was our 7th year doing Family Camp up at Forest Home and it might have been one of my favorites! RJ was with us last year and we had a blast, but this year she was able to enjoy so much more of the activities.

A typical dat at camp looks like this: 

7am: Crossfit (optional) or Lap Swim

8:30am: Breakfast

9:15am-12:15pm: Children go to their programs and parents get some quite time of their own. I read a FULL book this week and caught up some journaling and just being still.

12:30pm: Lunch

1:30-5pm: FREE TIME! They have a pool, splash pad, hikes, lake, challenge course, snack shop, indoor game room, zip-line and much more.

5pm: Dinner

6pm: Meet you CCA aka babysitter at your cabin. The kiddos hang back with their childcare provider while you and the hubby get to go to the evening adult session (worship and amazing speakers) and just have a night together (every night). Some night’s we had an ADULT DINNER, no kids..just US! We got dressed up a little and enjoyed things like fancy salmon and watermelon arugula salad.

9pm: Adult Activities (including the ZUMBA I teach on Monday’s) or just chill by the outdoor fires and catch up with old and new friends.

11pm: Return to cabin.

We had so much fun! I love that we spent so much time outdoors and even got a few naps in here and there. When we got home we were so refreshed from the week that we even tackled a few big projects at home that I can’t wait to show you!

If you are interested at going to Family Camp at Forest Home, you should! They have 9 weeks of this amazing camp every summer and let me just tell you the intentional time with your spouse as well as the no cooking and NO DISHES, is worth every penny!

Question: Have you ever been to a camp or retreat center like this before?

LARABAR: Clean Energy for your Workout

Hi Friends!

I hope you are all soaking up this wonderful summer. I am almost finished with my ten week challenge and I am excited to tell you all about my results. Today I wanted to share with you about an easy way to get quick sustainable energy to power through your workout, without eating a bunch of overly processed foods!

I have been a huge LARABAR fan for years. I have used them as a great whole food on-the-go snack and a better bar for a long run! When I hit the pavement and need a little pre-energy, I will grab half of a LARABAR, usually the peanut butter chocolate chip one since it’s my favorite and goes great with my cup of coffee. I love that I don’t have to think about what is going into my body because I know I am eating a whole food that will give me the energy I need without spiking my sugar levels, giving me a yucky crash.

On a bike ride I will carry a couple bars with me to enjoy throughout the ride. I take a couple because I love to share them with my friends and afterward they can’t wait to go buy some for our next ride. They have yummy gluten free bars and even whole food protein ones as well. The protein ones are great for long lasting energy.

I have used LARABARS for my half and full marathon training; I will eat half of a bar about every hour or so and drink water. They are light enough on my system that I don’t get that overly full feeling. I suggest giving one a try on your next run.

Some of their bars have as little as 3 whole ingredients! The cherry pie is one of my favorites; it tastes like you’re eating the real thing.

I love their brand statement, it goes along with everything I believe in about nourishing your body:

“At LÄRABAR®, we believe that the foundation of a sound mind, body and spirit is derived from what you eat – and what you eat is most delicious and satisfying when it’s in a whole, natural state.”
