|Mom, Me, and My Little Sister|
We went up on a Friday and it seemed like we had the mountain almost to ourselves. It was sunny and the snow was nice and fluffy...pretty perfect actually. I felt really good about my first day, as I didn't fall too much and "heel-edge" felt pretty natural. I feel pretty confident in saying that I owe this to CrossFit...yes, I can confidently say, "functional training" will prepare you for just about anything. Here I am learning to strap in and out of the board (that took a little while to get the hang of):
My sister's boyfriend is an awesome skier, but he's also a really great coach...I feel so lucky to have had that one-on-one coaching, as I saw quite a few groups that were not receiving the sort of attention that I got. This made a huge difference in my overall experience. Thanks, Matt!
As far as food is concerned, we ate really clean (Thai curry, Steak w/veg, Frittatas, Burgers no bun, Bratwurst...) during our trip, with exception to this (a snowboarding tradition for my sister, in which I had to partake):
But, after the four of us shared this pile of tastiness...I did this:
I'm pretty sure that there were magnetic forcefields in the woods, causing my board to be drawn into them...
With regard to food, I packed my favorite local sausage for frittatas each morning so breakfast was covered. We also ate the following meals:
We had some really great meals, both cooked in and eaten out, most (see above nachos and a little rice in a few of our sushi rolls, Valentines Day) of them Paleo and all of them delicious! And, though we made good food choices, we were not perfect. And, on that note, I will end this post with this...Salt Lake City brews some really tasty microbrews. ;) Now it's back to super clean eating and some serious WODs.
Don't worry...I haven't forgotten about my promise of a jerky recipe! Look for that post Sunday!
I love trying local microbrews, when traveling...what's your non-Paleo splurge of choice?
