The best new sport of all!

Friday, March 01, 2013

This past president's day weekend we were invited to the home of our good friends to party all weekend. It was a great time of good healthy food, great conversation and I discovered a new sport that I absolutely love. Snowshoeing!! My friends live about 35 minutes from Kirkwood Ski resort in the Californian Sierras. Right next door is the El Dorado National Forest and that is where we headed off to on Saturday. I spent the whole day walking on a beautiful glittering landscape. We had lunch up at the summit of Mount Amador. A Turkey sandwich never tasted so good.

I know that if I hadn't kept up with the SparkPeople fitness program the past year and half I never would have made it but now with my new strength and stamina it was a great way to spend the day I'm the one with the purple jacket and navy blue ski bib. If you live near a snowy area. I really recommend you give it a try.

    Sounds awesome....a pity we very seldom get snow where I live and when we do it doesn't stay around long...
Glad you enjoyed your weekend

    Awesome, Great job, what fun!!! That's the key, finding some sort of exercise that you love!! My husband loves snow shoeing. I have never had a chance to do it but would love to try it. He hasn't done it in many years. What a great accomplishment and victory to the fitness you have worked so hard to achieve over the past year!! WooHoo!!
