Hello from Colorado! I am out west skiing and hanging out all week. I flew in to Denver on Friday night (3/18) and have been to Keystone and Beaver Creek with Vail and maybe Breckenridge on deck! I’m going to leave out Colorado workout recaps from this post so I can do a ski-recap all together.
For the first time in a while, I went to zero classes via ClassPass. I was traveling too much to make it happen. I talk a big game about working out while traveling, but sometimes I slack when I’m away, too.
Hey guys. Before I dive into this week’s fitness review, I wanted to share this post I read on Foodiecology, titled “An Open Letter to the Women Who Read Healthy Living Blogs.” The post discusses how reading about the wellness-inspired choices other people make can leave us feeling shitty or inadequate. I definitely related to the sentiment of unspoken competition with total web-strangers. It starts earnestly as piqued curiosity and is furthered by internet anonymity where we don’t see the full picture.
Part of the reason I started this blog is because I’m a regular person. Anyone who knows me IRL knows I’ve no natural gift toward athletics. (My high school friends still exclusively see me as a klutz. Whatever.) But what I do have going for me on this forum is that I’m not shy and I’m eager to share my failings along with my successes. (Honestly am a little more excited to share the fails because they make for way funnier blog posts.)
