Something New Weekend

Well, it was back to work today, but I had an amazing, full weekend!  On Fridays I typically only have lab, but I set up a follow-up appointment with an athlete I’ve been meaning to catch up with.  What was meant to be a quick check-in turned into over an hour of talking about nutrition, cooking, recipes, and healthy living.  I love my job!

Saturday started out with a 4 mile treadmill jog.  It’s been a little cold and windy! Fortunately I do enjoy treadmill time — I love seeing people I know at the gym and just people-watching.  That evening, I invited a friend over for dinner.  I kept it simple & easy with tortellini and a starter salad.  He brought wine — what a guy 🙂  We then met up with some friends for a night on the town, which included some country dancing!  I headed for home a little earlier than usual, however, because I had big plans for Sunday!

One of my outdoorsy friends had been promising to take me cross country skiing for my first time, and yesterday was the day!  I borrowed a bunch of equipment, corralled my fears about injuries and devastating embarrassment, and hit the road with my friend and his dog.

The verdict?  I had an AMAZING time. The trails and the trees were so beautiful, and it snowed ever-so-lightly for most of the trip.

I did spend a small portion of the trip tumbling around in the snow, but loved the experience! We spent a few hours out on the trails and I had a blast the entire time — my companion (and his dog) were pretty patient with my slow progress too 🙂 I can’t wait to go again!
