Travel

an update

Two days of skiing and snowboarding and no trips to the ER…I consider that to be a success.

There was one moment, however, when I thought I was dying on the mountain and howled to Adam:

“Just leaaaaaave me!!! Go on without me! Save yourself!!”

He told me to get my butt up.

I shed a tear.

Massages might be mandatory.

    I have snowboard soreness today too! I just did some yoga to help it, and massages are great too. Hope you had a great time snowboarding! It is my favorite winter activity for sure.

    Massages are always mandatory – and I’m pretty sure I am NOT a snowboarding/skiier … it never ends well. I’m also a coward.

    Omg sounds like a blast!

    Glad there are no ER visits involved for you!

    True story: the last time we were in Tahoe, my husband’s very FIRST run on the first mountain of the first day….he fell. And thought it “wasn’t that bad”. Went on a few more runs. Turns out he torn a huge muscle in the back of his calf. And we DID end up in the ER and that was the end of his/our ski trip.

    Enjoy your massage and your trip!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Gah, so jealous. That’s how I was ice skating a couple weekends ago with my boyfriend! I seriously look like a deer on ice, so uncoordinated. My boyfriend was laughing his butt off– no mercy, I tell you! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hi, I’m new to reading your blog but I love all of the stories and recipes (and followed you on PFB). THis post gave me the biggest smile because I have totally had skiing days like that where I just want to cry, sit down wherever I am on the mountain, and be carried down and go home ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m lucky that one of my families skiing spots is at Sugarloaf MT in Maine, which is right near my aunts house. She always has apres-ski drinks and appetizers for us that sort of cushion all of that pain. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

    Happy to hear there were no disasters. Snow is so much fun to play in but I wish there was a way to keep it off the roads!

    nothing to do with this post, but i made those pumpkin whoopie pies the other day, and my sister and i ate the whole damn batch within a week. We were both eating about 5 a day (we ate most of them in singles, not the little sandwiches). SOOO delicious

      I agree! Skiing or snowboarding without a helmet (regardless of whether you are going down the bunny slope or off-piste) is reckless and scary!

    Jenna,
    You have the most beautiful skin! I am sure much of that is because of your lifestyle…but I was curious as to what products/what routine you follow?

    I have a very healthy diet and exercise routine but still struggle with my skin!
