mid-february update

Good afternoon, loves! I just made a cup of coffee and decided to sit down and write a blog. What a whirlwind of a month it’s been! Utah got snow, then we lost snow, then we got snow, then we lost snow…and at the beginning of last week, I really started to feel homesick because it was so dry here. The snow had melted and everything looked and felt like spring—in February! However, just as I thought old man winter was gone for good—he showed up full storm! Since last Thursday, Park City has gotten over 25 inches of snow! …And just like that, it was winter in Park City again. 

Other than that, I’m doing great. I start Kayla Itsines’ BBG (Bikini Body Guide) last week for no other reason other than I was kind of bored with my usual workout routine. I’ve followed along with Kayla’s Instagram for quite some time now and decided to give it a go. Holy heck—it is NO joke! I started at the beginning, pre-training week 1&2 thinking they’d be easy as pie…holy heck-a-roni was I wrong! I’m not gonna lie, I did not enjoy the first day…like at all (lol)…but I’ve stuck with it and I am enjoying it so much! It is definitely challenging, but that’s exactly what I wanted. I feel like I already feel a difference in my muscles. I’ll keep you posted as the program progresses. 

I’ve also been eating more of a plant-based diet lately. I’ve had so much fun experimenting with smoothies, salads and dinners. I swear my skin looks better because of it. Eating mostly plant-based makes me feel my best. As I experiment, I’m sure one or two of the recipes will end up on here. 

I wanted to take one more adventure while I’m here in Utah. I figure, I don’t know if I’ll be back next year (or ever live out west again) so I might as well take advantage. So, I’m leaving for Steamboat Springs, CO tomorrow. I booked it a week ago not knowing that Park City was going to get 14 inches of snow last night…but hey, what can you do. I’m really looking forward to it. I actually went to Steamboat when I was a kid but don’t remember anything except how snowy the runway was when we landed. As usual, I got deal on a sweet hotel room because I stalk Trip Advisor like a weirdo. I’ll be sure to post some pics when I get there. 

Stay tuned! 

Keep on keepin’ on—
XX, Laura
