Glamper For Life

How was everyone’s weekend?! 😀

On Friday afternoon I said my goodbye’s to Rocko, picked Mike up at work, and hit the road towards Acres of Wildlife Campsite in Steep Falls, Maine.

OK, so the other day I said I was going camping but I guess it was more like glamping.  Mike, our friends, Matt and Jaime, and I switched it up this year and rented a house on a campground instead of staying in tents……  And it was awesome!!! I highly recommend this to anyone who likes the idea of camping but doesn’t really like to camp. 

Welcome to our Chickadee House:

Yankees 😦 – Sox 😀

On Saturday we rented tubes and floated down the Saco River.  This is probably one of my favorite activities that I’ve done all summer.   The views were gorgeous and we were able to relax and just float away!  Can’t wait to do it again next year! 

After a lazy day of tubing we went back to the glampsite for happy hour at Chubs Pub, played a couple of rounds of Scattegories (I’m obsessed), and hung-out by the campfire for the rest of the evening.

Jaime’s Famous S’mores: graham crackers, marshmellow, and peanut butter cup!

After drinking and eating crap all weekend it’s time to get my butt in gear……..

No Weights Circuit Workout:

  • 15 push-ups
  • 20 jump squats
  • 25 mountain climbers
  • 60 second plank
  • 60 second invisible jump rope
  • 60 second wall sit

**Repeat the circuit 2-3 times

Question:  I finally ordered a pair of compression socks.  Do you guys wear them??  If so, do you wear them during races??  Or just after?

  1. This looks like a fantastic trip — and the ONLY way that I would consider “camping” — still having nightmares from Girl Scout camp thirty years ago — super tall grass, tons of spiders, flooding rains, and freezing temps. I could definitely go for a cute cabin in milder weather. 🙂
