I'm back!

Monday, March 11, 2013

Two weeks playing in the Alps. I ate too much and drank too much, but skiied 12 out of 13 days. I weighed myself this morning to see the damage, and didn't gain any weight! But when I entered the skiing on the fitness tracker, I saw how many calories I spent. And I didn't count all the time hiking in ski boots! (there was a lot of hiking - but I didn't know or care how to count that). I am so happy I didn't gain any weight.

But now it's back to reality. I will try to catch up with everyone, but laundry is keeping me busy. As soon as it get's light outside I will try to run. It's been two weeks and I don't know what kind of running shape I'm in.

Pictures later. That is something I'm not ready to tackle right now.

    Sweet! I'm not surprised you maintained considering all that working out! I remember what it took out of an overweight me skying in Europe! I would have enjoyed it a lot more today for sure! Love that you enjoyed yourself, Snow Bunny!

    Welcome back! I learned to ski in West Germany. Also got to ski in Austria and Switerland. Interesting to note that I've never skied in the U.S. though. When we got back from our military tour over there, I started having my kids and never made it back on the slopes. I really need to do that someday.

Glad you had a great trip. Glader yet that you are back though:) Yup, I'm a bit selfish!
