Exercise Wednesday:
Skiing 2 hours..... Pretty tough runs thru packed powder. I took it easy because my knees are feeling the 4 ski days in a row!!! I'm taking Iburofen and utilizing the hot tub!! (I take meds only if absolutely necessary!!!!)
Last day of skiing tomorrow.... Headed back to Buttermilk- I enjoyed the skiing there; nice easy open runs!!! Oh, it's snowing here too!!
Nutrition:
Still not horribly hungry.... I'm thinking it's still the altitude. In fact, today I added baby Lima beans to my lunch (Amy's frozen Thai), it didn't agree with me!!! Horrible digestion issues.... I'm wondering if foods that can cause gas at normal altitude can cause MORE gas at higher altitudes?? Not much else can explain my problem......

Enjoying the meeting- superb lectures!!! I'm def getting my CEU money's worth!!

Headed back to KC...... I70 going thru Kansas is rather boring..... Good company with my hubby & his choice of tunes on Pandora.
Skiing yesterday was phenomenal! 6+" of fresh powder at our favorite mountain, Buttermilk!! The 5th day of skiing was a breeze- nice & relaxing- we hated to leave as we both felt we had made the "soreness" turn and could ski almost continuously! We are already looking forward to our return trip in March with the kiddos!! All play then!
Nutrition:
Let me say that I'm ready for my normal eating regimen!! 2 days ago I dipped into eating some bread and 1/2 of a brownie (sweets are my weakness! Ugh!) Boy, I'm paying for it - major digestion changes. I play, I seem to pay!! Thankful that I do know how to control/prevent my issues. Sometimes I stray and it serves as a reminder!
I did bring cut celery, PB & dark choc chips - just made ants on a log for a snack til we can find a dinner place!! A fav snack of mine!!

Hey there, Lisa! I've been traveling this week, so haven't been online much. BUT, I'm so happy you had such a wonderful time in Colorado last week!! YAY! And you get to go back next month? Awesome!

Are you gluten-intolerant? Is that why you get such bad issues when you ate the bread/brownie? I know how hard it can be to stay on track with food while traveling. I'm kind of looking forward to getting back home and in my regular eating routine, too.

Hope you are having a great start to the week!

Karen

Tuesday: work day #2 in a row where I'm exhausted!! Returning from vacation to busy, stressful work days can be a bummer!!! Trying to get my routine for exercise back!! I'm early off tomorrow so I'm shooting for good cardio!!!

Nutrition: in track with exception of "sweet" cravings!!! Ugh!!!
My hubby got me dark choc covered almonds from trader joes- indulgence!!! :)

Karen-yes, I tried to avoid gluten as much as possible...... I feel miserable after ingesting it!!! It all started after I would drink a beer and feel symptoms of fullness, bloating, heartburn..... Just after a couPle of drinks. So through process of dietary manipulation and finally elimination, my digestive issues are minimalists! I did the same with dairy!!! Sadly, I did nutrition investigation all on my own. No doctors ever suggested diet changes- only another test or pill!!! I detest medications!!!

Happy Valentines Day!
Off to relax with the hubby!

Wednesday: cardio in treadmill- still wasn't feeling 100% but did 20 mins!
Thursday: 10+ hour workday, exhausted & in bed after mom duties by 8pm!!
Friday: off early and 60 degrees out so...... I went for a run!! Wahoo!! 3 miles/38 mins which included 5 - 1 min walk intervals to prevent injury & lower my heart rate from 170!! (usually shoot for HR 155-165).

Nutrition: doing ok..... Not as hungry as pre-ski trip so I'm not getting my Servs of fruit like before.... Did eat plenty of greens today! Dinner tonight was out- indulged in a cocktail & dark chocolate for dessert!
Forecast for nice weather..... Thinking about a bike ride with the kiddos this weekend!

Sat: elliptical 30 mins
Sunday: laundry & kids projects- I was beat so no workout!
Monday: raining here so I ran indoors on treadmill- I can tell I've been off a few weeks from running b/c I'm sore!!! So I did shorter 5-8 min run intervals mixed with 1min walks.... Total 45 mIns!

Our Brew to Brew relay team is formed! We had enough for 2 teams of 6!! We are doing "the six leg special" which is a team of 6 going 27.4 miles- I have not decided which leg I will do yet & we get to run in pairs..... Good motivation!!! This will be fun & beer will be waiting! Ha!
