Skiing has kinda killed me. I’m happy about it, but I’ve skied more this winter than the last two winters put together. I’ve skied harder, faster, and better. I’ve also totally repeatedly taxed my body to the point of exhaustion. I’m still wondering if what I have is a set of hairline fractured ankles.
The ‘break’ of SXSW provided not much of a break, the walking and standing didn’t give my feet, ankles, and knees the time to rest and repair I’d hoped for. Then I came home to a ton of new snow!
I’ve been trying to get back to the gym or back to yoga every day, but was just too beat. I finally started today in the basement, and thankfully there and not the gym! I had to take two ‘time outs’ on an hour long yoga workout. Sad.
If you remember me mentioning this Yoga 21 Day Challenge at the beginning of the year, I am so fortunate that all the videos are still available. You should check it out! I didn’t get to it then, but started it today.
I made it about two full months of not eating any crap. Unfortunately that kind of hurt me in the long run, eating crap in Austin made me super sick one whole night…but oh well. I’m upping the ante to no fast food and no restaurants, which will again have to wait until we get back from my Momm’s birthday vacation, although I’m going to try to force myself to either salads or small portions, haven’t quite figured that out. And again, if you ban it, then when you’re stuck with it, it hurts. Kinda curious about the appropriate balance. Thoughts?
And I have a question. I’m back to getting in shape, building flexibility, and cultivating this healthy body to ski and live with.
Do you use any supplements or swear by any product to help?
I’ve been drinking this daily and really like it, even though it’s one of those “not validated by the FDA” herbal kind of things. Any of you have something like this that you use/take/drink?
