Weekend Fun!

I haven’t posted anything in awhile mostly because of my fun and busy weekend. Like I said before Friday was a half day of school so I got out at 11. My brothers were still in school so it was just my mom and I. It was such a sunny December day so we decided to go for a hike.

It was about a 3 mile hike with a mix of woods and dunes. And according to my Sports Tracker app I burned  356 calories. I so fun though it didn’t even seem like exercise!

They have amazing soups and salads and a salad was just what I was after. It was jam packed when we got there and it was a 25 minute wait. We decided we didn’t want to wait because we had to be home to get my brothers from school and went to the Health Hutt instead. I was actually pretty exited because I have never actually  eaten there, just shopped. I forgot to bring my glasses so I could not see the menu (It was on a chalkboard) so it was hard to see all they had. I decided on a everything salad minus the meat with vegan ranch.

If you haven’t heard of Chocolove bars, they are a natural chocolate bar with so many unique flavors. My personal favorite is Almonds & Sea Salt in Dark Chocolate.   Its much better for you than the typical store bought bars loaded with artificial flavors. And trust me, you won’t even miss Hershey’s after you try these.
