Did you get to enjoy the long weekend, if you had to work I hope you did someone nice for yourself in the form of a workout, a chat with a friend or a special lunch. It was a cold cold day yesterday…so I did what any sane person would do…

Yup I went skiing, in feels like -30 temps…sanity at its best right ha?!? So yes it was cold, like cold that you could only take a few runs before frost bite set in and you needed to get inside to warm up. But the conditions were amazing! Skiers love what is called “first tracks”, which means your the first ones on the mountian and the snow has not yet been skied on and not many other skiers are on the mountian. Every. Single. Run. Was a first tracks run….so yes it was cold but it was the best day of skiing I have had in years. Fresh powder, sunny skies, and no one else on the mountian!

After skiing I love to have a warm meal, but mid runs I stick to protein bars, Shakes, Milk, Fruit, Trail Mix, and Core Power. Sometimes a meal makes me too tired but these snacks fill me to keep me turning, and not too tired.

So yes I might have been a little crazy to ski in the cold, but I would not have picked any other way to spend my holiday weekend! Best part of the day ski trip was lunch with is lady…

Miss A lives along the way to and from the mountains so I got to swing by and catch up with her after my skiing adventures. We went to the best restaurant and had amazing French onion soup, a salad with fried goat cheese and the best flat bread pizza I have had in forever. Two of our friends got married and got us our matching hoodies and legit all the bridesmaids are always wearing these hoodies, they are the best! After this amazing weekend of wine, friends, skiing, food, and laughs it was time to hit the gym this am.
