Have you missed me, avid readers? I am back from my ski trip with the Jordans and had an amazing time skiing for four days. Unfortunately on the last day I started to feel sick and have been home with a fever and sore throat since we returned. And no appetite. But first, the ski trip.
I tried to eat balanced meals, but really didn't try that hard beyond breakfast. Every morning I had a whole wheat english muffin with peanut butter and bananas. Sometimes I also had Cheerios. Once a hard boiled egg. Every day while skiing I ate one or two balance bars/Luna bars. For lunch I tried to eat protein - turkey, chicken, etc. I usually also got french fries and a cookie. I drank a lot of hot chocolate. For dinners I was pretty good - one night I had shrimp and risotto, one night I had seared tuna, the next night pizza, and then the last night french onion soup (I ordered salmon also but really didn't eat it because I wasn't feeling well).
I brought some Chewy Mocha Brownie Cookies for the Jordans and they were a big hit.
My new ski pants were also a big hit. They fly never fell down. The snaps never unsnapped. I love my new ski pants.
I was very interested to see my fitbit stats when I got home. I don't think it is completely accurate tracking skiing because you're not really taking "steps" and I never changed the time zone, but it was still really interesting to see:
Day 32 (traveling): 6,761 steps (2.91 miles), 1947 calories burned, active score: 631
Day 33 (skiing): 11,962 steps (5.15 miles), 2312 calories burned, active score: 1020
Day 34 (skiing): 13,836 steps (5.96 miles), 2381 calories burned, active score: 1039
Day 35 (skiing): 13,507 steps (5.82 miles), 2483 calories burned, active score: 1201
Day 36 (skiing and sick): 10,013 steps (4.31 miles), 2237 calories burned, active score: 940.
Day 37 (traveling and sick): 4,330 steps (1.86 miles), 1178 calories burned, active score: 451.
Day 38 (sick): 1,698 steps (.73 miles), 1494 calories burned, active score: 218.
As you can tell, I've really gone downhill since I stop skiing downhill and starting feeling downhill. I'm also completely lost my appetite and can't keep any food down. I weighed myself today and I'm down another 2 pounds. I don't know how much is from my active days skiing and how much is from my sick days. Hopefully I will start feeling better now and then I can get back on track in eating world.
Until then it's more tea and nyquil for me.
