We have been planning to forgo our annual ski journey, however Deer Valley had a child ski free deal that we (OK, principally I) couldn’t resist. So we booked it and fly out tomorrow! It’s a very brief journey, however we’re wanting ahead to snowboarding these majestic mountains and making probably the most out of nonetheless.
We visited Deer Valley in 2019 and once more final yr in 2021, and it appears like visiting an previous good friend now. We all know the buildings and the routine and the lifts and the slopes. The youngsters are excited to do The Choose, the shortest carry on the mountain I swear, about one million instances I’ve little question. I’m simply excited to see the bear home! Click on for all my snowboarding with youngsters posts.
Earlier than we bounce into the weekend although, listed below are a couple of of my favourite issues from the week… let’s begin within the meals class!
In our crawlspace/dwelling fitness center we have now a deep freezer. Every time I get my Butcher Field deliveries or Each day Harvest deliveries, I load them into there. Then I pull what I would like as much as the kitchen fridge. Nonetheless, generally this results in hidden surprises, like discovering these Raspberry + Fig bites. They arrive 7 to a cup and the ingredient record reads: natural date paste, natural raspberries, almond flour, almond butter, natural coconut, natural fig puree, natural cranberry seeds, haskap berry powder, vanilla bean powder.
Most significantly, they’re SO good. I’ve eaten one or two nearly each day, alongside cottage cheese as a submit exercise snack. For those who’re a Each day Harvest individual and haven’t tried them but, I extremely advocate making an attempt them!
And in the event you’re extra in a savory temper and wish some wholesome dinner sides, their new Bakes are fantastic! Effectively, neither baby was significantly wild about them (too many elements blended collectively). However David and I each loved the style and so many nutritionally packed meals packed right into a single facet dish.
I additionally wished to provide a shoutout to my favourite meat thermometer. I’ve had it for years however don’t speak about it a lot. Nonetheless, since I’ve began sharing my nightly dinner prep on Instagram, I’ve gotten quite a lot of questions on it. I exploit it each single day as a result of I’m bizarre about meats. I wish to be certain that they’re secure to eat, however not overcooked. Particularly meals like pork tenderloin which might be so simply dried out when cooked too lengthy.
I really feel actually sturdy proper now and that feels actually good. David and I are nonetheless following Madeline’s exercises completely. I’m nonetheless impressed how she switches issues up so nicely every week, whereas nonetheless operating by means of the identical legs/higher physique/cardio & core/again & chest/full physique structure.
This week’s again and chest day was considered one of our all time favorites. It was HARD. And for the primary time ever, my Lumen confirmed me from going to a 4 (principally burning carbs) earlier than the exercise to a 1 (burning fats) after the exercise. It was so cool to get proof of dipping into fats shops!
Just a few health associated issues we’re loving currently embody the adjustable dumbbells David received for his birthday (they’ve actually helped him be capable of push extra by rising the load obtainable to him), the pull up bar we have now in our kitchen (all of us dangle on it a number of instances a day for enjoyable, but in addition to extend hand and arm energy and abs), and LMNT electrolytes.
I exploit the electrolytes after a tough exercise or after utilizing the sauna blanket (AHS for $75 off). Nonetheless, we additionally use them once we go to larger elevations to fight altitude associated points. We’ve got packed a bunch of packets for us to drink on the airplane and the slopes!
This submit turned out approach longer than I anticipated, however let me give a remaining two shout outs to issues I’m loving currently. The primary is my CBD delicate gels and tea. If you’re new to CBD, try my submit that breaks down the completely different supply strategies and the way to decide on the one which works greatest for you.
I’ve used this CBD model for years and it’s fantastic to have round for days that really feel overwhelming or as simply as a pleasant strategy to wind down within the night. On weeks like this when there’s loads to take care of and I don’t desire a glass of wine, CBD and tea makes the proper 5:00 mixture.
And eventually, a philosophy I totally imagine in and subscribe to. Dhru Purohoit is a favourite podcast of mine. He talks about bodily well being, psychological well being, and goal, amongst different issues. When he shared this on IG, it resonated with me. In a world that feels a bit of loopy proper now, I nonetheless imagine there are such a lot of fantastic folks on the market, all doing there greatest and loving one another. Select to see the great 💜
I hope you all have unbelievable weekend and for people who comply with on Instagram, I’m going to work on getting that Suzie’s hen recipe I shared posted whereas I’m on the airplane. Take pleasure in your weekend, pals!
