I missed…

25 02 2009

all of my readers! I missed not having cell service and not having my computer ! However, I LOVED LOVED LOVED all the activity and being in the snow again and re-learning snowboarding and hanging out with all of our friends! Getting my gloves on… however… I spent lots of time in this position and trying to get up from it…

Here is my recap:

According to the self.com activity calculator, I burned 2,850 calories the first day of snowboarding and 2, 340 the second day. Phew…

I tried to eat to make up for it and think I did a pretty good job- with my butt, knees, hands, arms, shoulders, wrists, lats, abs and ankles either swollen, in pain, cut, bruised or just sore- I am resting until I feel better.

The best news: I took a high-dose anti inflammation med. ( originally for my knee as needed) last night and this morning and most everything now is downplayed to sore- not so much in pain. The exception- my arm from shoulder down to my hand. I think it is just tweaked/sprained badly.


I actually got studying done this weekend despite being on the mountain everyday . Thanks to all my friends that helped me!!!! I really focused on one little section for 1-2 hours each day and managed to get it all in and memorized.

The test today was EASY! I hate hate hate feeling that way because usually that  means I missed something- but I just don’t think I missed anything this exam. Fingers Crossed. The mountain might have kicked my butt but I totally kicked that exams butt, if it had one.

I get my vitamins exam back tomorrow… fingers crossed again for that!??!

Despite everything pain wise- this trip was absolutely AWESOME!! I can’t believe what a fantastic investment the socks and gloves I bought friday were!! My $10 pants were awesome the first day- the second day I added another layer because it went down to  8 * and very windy!

It took so much out of me everytime I fell to pull myself back up – and I fell almost every 20-30 feet the first day. But, it meant alot to me to just keep trying, I knew I could do it and I did- that one run I felt on top of the world, no falling, I made each turn a decision- toes head to the left, slow down lean to the uphill edge, heels… it was confident decisions and it felt amazing to fly down and meet Jeff at the same time he went down the other side.


For snacks we brought:
