Skiing Again

We are going skiing again today! I am looking forward to another day on the slopes. The weather is supposed to be fair and sunny. We will be meeting DS there. I feel strong and energetic and ready for another day!

What a Change!

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

What a wonderful day! I watched the DGDs in their ski school from 10 to 3. Then let them ski by themselves on the bunny slope til 4. They did great! I can't believe how exhausted I am from just watching them ski and walking back and forth at the bottom of the Bunny Hill. I know without a doubt I couldn't have done this last year at this time when I weighed 270 pounds. It is wonderful to have enough energy to actively enjoy the grandkids. Today we are going swimming at the Rec Center and for a Bike Ride on the St Vrain Greenway.

We went to Casa Bonita, a Mexican restaurant in Denver, after skiing and I ordered the same meal I had last year when the girls visited in July. Last year the meal was 1450 calories. This year I cut everything in half and gave it to DH so it was 750 calories. I came in only 100 calories over for the day. I enjoyed the meal and didn't feel in the least bit guilty for eating that many calories at one meal. I enjoyed the experience with the granddaughters and remembered the 80/20 rule.

Life is Good!

    Amazing what a year can do for you. I remember Casa Bonita. I was there several years back when we visited our friends who live in Windsor. It was pretty fun. Keep on having fun with the dgd's . I get to see mine on Friday. Her mother seems to have had a little change of heart. I pray its for keeps.

    Life IS good, Nancy. I can relate when you said, "I know without a doubt I couldn't have done this last year at this time when I weighed 270 pounds." I have been there too! So glad you have gotten so healthy!
Have a great time today again!

Skiing

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

We're off to the mountains to ski. I tried on my DH's ski boots and skis and tried to get up from a sitting position (as if I'd fallen) and set off really bad back spasms so I'm not going to try to ski. That's ok! I will enjoy it vicariously thru the girls! Life is still good!

Day 3

Monday, March 15, 2010

Went to the gym with 13yo DGD and we spent 30 min on the track. She is a runner so I walked and ran off and on with her. I ended up doing an 18 min mile which is a PR for me!

emoticon emoticon

Then we worked on the machines with each other. It was great! A healthy lifestyle thru the generations! (except it went up from her and her Mom to me!)

emoticon

All 4 of us went with DH to his first Occupational Therapy appointment and the 13 year old who is interested in Health Sciences was fascinated!

emoticon

After lunch "the 3 girls" went to Flatirons Mall in Boulder and had lots of fun buying perfume, lotion, lip gloss, shirts and running shorts...not to mention Haagen Daz! (Lemon Sorbet for 110 calories for me!)

emoticon

After dinner of crockpot beef stew (which the 11 year old made with grampa while we were at the gym)

emoticon

we made lunches and packed our ski clothes for ski school tomorrow.

emoticon

Can't wait!

  


Spring Break Begins!

Sunday, March 14, 2010

It's a quiet Sunday morning after a hectic Saturday trip to Southern Colorado to pick up DGDs. We had a happy uneventful trip and DH was cleared for driving so I didn't have to drive the 4 hour trip! The girls are happy and excited. We took a 2 mile walk when we got home to "exercise our tushes". We made dinner together and then sat down and worked out a schedule for the week...running time, gym time, shopping, ice skating, skiing x 2, swimming, and biking. I can't wait. The girls are active and athletic like their Mom so I will be kept moving the whole week! As I said "I can't wait".
