Cheat Meals & Vacation

4 Aug

So this past week me and my family went away to Lake George for a few days and let me tell you it was MUCH NEEDED. We usually go up there for a few days every summer to get away from our normal surroundings and relax. I tried to stay as active as possible while I was away and relax by the pool and catch some sun. Hiking and swimming were my two main forms of exercise while I was there and I loved it. Swimming has always been one of my favorite forms of exercise in the summertime. It strengthens your muscles, helps ease the pain of chronic illnesses such as arthritis and reduces your risks of conditions such as adult onset diabetes and heart disease. It’s always good to mix it up and keep your body guessing with new forms of exercise. Not only is it good to switch up your workout routine but your body deserves cheat meals every now and then too!

Let me just say that Martha’s Ice Cream in Queensbury, NY is by far the best ice cream I have ever had and hands down my favorite. If you ever go to Lake George Martha’s is a must. First night there included banana & chocolate swirl dipped in peanut butter..heaven.

So burgers definitely aren’t something I usually crave or even think about for that matter but when I’m on vacation I’m obviously going to indulge..who doesn’t? One day for lunch I ordered a deluxe cheeseburger from A&W with sweet potato fries. Obviously I requested a whole wheat bun 🙂

I mentioned that I went hiking while I was away…

At Natural Stone Bridges and Caves in Pottersville, NY. This wasn’t my first time here but I’m so glad I came back because it is beautiful and definitely a great sight to see if your vacationing near the Adirondacks or Lake George.
