Thursday started out like any other.
(1/3 cup coach’s oats, apple, cinnamon, vanilla protein powder)
Transported that breakfast to class so I could eat it leisurely…
Did the rugby weights routine, came home to lunch…
But then….TO THE MOUNTAINS!
This is a big, big deal for me.
I grew up in Connecticut, so I had my share of skiing in Vermont during high school.
But overall, skiing…meh. I don’t hate it, but don’t love it either!
So I’ve never brought my skis out to school in Colorado, and I’ve definitely never driven hours to the ski slopes up North.
Buuuut since my new roomies are awesome and they do this all the time (ok, everyone does), I decided to join a group for 2 nights in ski country! Good, good decision.
Ok, ready for this? I learned to skateboard when I got to college, but had never snowboarded before.
So I kinda took a leap of faith, borrowed a friend’s board, and hoped for the best.
Success!!!!!! I didn’t even fall when I first attempted the bunny hill.
Not saying I’m going to fork over hundreds of dollars a ski pass anytime soon, or ask my parents to ship out my skis, but I might indulge a few days to practice my new skills this season. Or just practice my apres-ski.
And we did take a break from our heavy consumption of instant oatmeal, eggs, pasta, and alcohol to stop by a favorite bakery!
Oh, and a hemp milk steamer (with toffee nut flavor!!) for the road.
The food coma induced a nap all the way home, and when we arrived I was awake enough to hit the gym for weights. Isn’t that the best?
How’s your weekend so far? Question: Do you ski or snowboard?
