Quick notes

I like Colette's suggestion about keeping workouts on track, and sort of going with the flow in terms of eating at this time of year. Yesterday's workout for me was running:

10.35 miles
9:24 pace
1335 feet ascent
1274 feet descent
1497 calories

The run was tougher than usual because I'd done a heavy leg workout the day before. But the run needed to happen when it did, because tomorrow we're heading up the hill for snowboarding (our THIRD trip this season!), and I want fresh legs. It's been raining here all week, the snow should be sensational and I can't wait!

Here's a post that talks about having an anchor for your eating. It's written for when you travel, but works very nicely in the context of holiday craziness. (I'm writing this as I finish my everyday breakfast bowl of oatmeal/flaxseed/Splenda.)

Hi Leslie, you changed your blog name! (Or am I crazy?)

You are so right - the idea of an anchor isn't just for travel, but really any "out of the norm" period. I didn't even think about it!

I had my oats today, too. :-)

Ahhh, thank you ;)

I can't believe you're going for a third time!! Have you checked out Costco? They have a "Tahoe Pass" for only $40 and you get one free lift ticket and discounts at every ski place. Plus discounts on rentals and I think 4 free tune-ups. Great deal, since you are into it now ;) Maybe one day I'll give it a try...don't hold your breath though ;)

I love my oats in the morning....oats, Splenda, cinnamon, and blueberries...yummm

Have a super weekend!!

I feel like such a slacker after reading your posts! You're doing so great. I haven't really run since the cruise... Sheesh! Nice job, Leslie. It reminds me that I need to get my act together to stay on course.
