BRRRRRRR – It’s been freezing in the DC area this week. Today doesn’t seam much better. While glad the big storm missed us – sometimes a blanket of snow is nice. We are headed to Park City, UT in a few weeks for our second annual ski trip – only 2 of the 4 kids are able to go – oh well…. ( hard when everyone gets their own life – different places – schedules – anyway – that’s a different post ) We fell in love with the Silver Star Resort last year and going back – I was even able to get us the same townhouse unit!!! SCORE! Something cool about it – nostalgia – ya know. Plus it was just a lovely unit – gourmet kitchen all Viking appliances – fully equipped – hot tub – lift 25ft from building – close to town – perfect. They have shuttle service but we are getting our own SUV this time – easier.
So in preparation I bought my own ski boots – thank you @ChrisBunch owner of ALPINE SKI SHOP – near Dulles airport 45 min. from Frederick – www.alpineskishop.com. Terrific store – great service and wonderful selection. I am upping my cardio – doing lunges, squats and wall sits ( thank you Jennifer from +Sylvana Institute Med Spa for the tip ) increase my leg and knee strength – I don’t wanna get hurt. I will most likely take a lesson again.
Mike already knows how to ski and the boys are snowboard experts – we UPS’d and surprised them with GoPro’s for each and the helmet attachments – pretty cool right? They went on the back side of a mountain last year and tried doing videos with their phones but this should be better – I have mine with chest harness etc. should be some pretty funny videos.
Apparnetly I am told I do a lot of yelling, crying and self talking when I ski….. Last year when boys took me out at night – my slope was closed – Uggggg but I did my slalom’s and was heading towards the orange netting so as not to go over a cliff and I was getting tired – You see they pulled me up on a much harder slope than I had done all day…. I’m talking Utah people not like ski liberty here – I was on a MOUNTAIN TOP I wanted to just hang on the net for a minute – little did I know JOJO – my oldest was watching and and was like “TURN Woman TURN” I went straight for the net and hung on for dear life! He had to come get me – I got all tangled up in it – LOL So this year should make for some even better stories!
FYI I am also on Day 4 of the +Clean Program going pretty well – still having a cup of coffee in the a.m. but other than that following it to the letter. (drinking hot water with lemon prior to coffee to help with acidity – PH leveling) All in all I would recommend this. It’s a bit hard when the husband is eating dinner and Im sipping a shake but than when he pulls out the ice cream too and goes outside to smoke kindda empowers me…. is that wrong? Who knows. Gotta get on the treadmill and do those leg exercises.
Hugs – thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend beauties! Cheers!
