I’m Back…..

Sorry I have been MIA but I’m BACK…it’s been a Fantastic, but BUSY week!
Let’s start at Saturday Shall We… I went here and was an in store fitness model. They have instore event’s and Saturdays 3-4 they have fitness professionals in the windows doing their thing! Saturday that was me…I can’t wait to go back! It was so much fun, adults and kids alike start doing the moves with you, interacting with you, and just being awesome!

It was going to be a long day so I ate, ate, ate, and kept it HEALTHY! Also saw this quote and loved it!

Up next was Sunday, and this race…followed by Palm Sunday Mass. 20 waterfront miles done, with a great conversation and running partner. The race is stunning but the logistics are a little tricky, it’s point to point, and the 20 miler and half marathon start at different points. It’s amazing, but logistically it’s a lot of Buses.

then I moved on to…

If your catholic did you learn this as a kid? My grandmother taught me and I still do it. Palm Sunday Mass is longer then a typical mass in the Catholic Church, and is about Jesus’sĀ  Crucifixion.
Monday morning started EARLY! I went for a run, and had a NIKE TRAINER AUDITION!

I was not selected by NIKE but it is just such an awesome experience to be included and to make it that far…and then I saw this and was reminded, that whatever is meant to be will be, and there is a plan for me out there that is going to be epic!

Then this week I had a roll over vacation day so I headed HERE to see this MOVIE.

Have you gone to the movies during the day? I went alone, and was legit one of the only people there, it was so relaxing! After I got to hit up Trader Joe’s for some flowers, and pick up some Core Power product aka Christmas in March for this Athlete… And I got to chill with T Man, life is good!

How is your week going?
Any good April Fools Jokes?
Favorite Movie!

Chilly Chilly Monday

Happy Tuesday!
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.
