2,400 calories apparently.

5 hours of skiing, 125 pound woman.

Sweet!  Today we went to Gore mountain in the Adirondacks. We have a friend that is on ski patrol there, and he got us free lift tickets! Plus, Hubby is a phenomenal skiier, and an amazing teacher.  This was only the second–yes, count it SECOND–time skiing, ever! And at the end of the day I went down the blue hill, twice. Wahoo!

Here’s a picture of me skiing last year (my first and only other time I’ve skied). Apparently I was wearing a Size XL pant…I had to buy Size Small this year! Amazing what one year makes! I’m about 60 pounds thinner than this time last year!
