Cross Country skiing…and Phase 5…

100_5224

Today the boy scouts, venture crew and us went skiing. It was a great day. The weather was weird though. It’s been warm the past couple of day, in the mid to high 20’s so there has been lots and lots of fog that makes frost on the trees. Here’s a couple of pictures showing the frost.

We also found a porcupines den near the trail. Didn’t see the porcupine but did see lots of his lunches.

Allan's Phase 5 starts Monday.... and there is an amazing grand prize for the person that losses the most of themselves. 46 people are in the running and even though there is just one grand prize to be won the best prize will be for ourselves, getting fit, healthy and able to love ourselves again.  Tomorrow is weigh in day. I was 185 last week, I haven’t stepped on the scale all week because part way through the week things had changed and for a bit there wasn’t going to be a challenge and that meant I sorta went off plan. I didn’t over eat I just didn’t eat the most healthy stuff.  So we’ll just see. It’s a new week and new phase.

Take care my friends and have a most blessed Sunday.

It was a great day here for skiing! What fun! Nice that the deep freeze finally left! I'm in the Twin Cities so I'm south of you but we were in the 30's and had tons of fog too. Left the house early and could barely see the car in front of us. Pretty though after it went away! Great pictures!

Good luck on the challenge..like you said, the best prize is your health. I am so proud of everyone that has been on Alan's challenge, it is hard work but will be a lifestyle change.

snowy beauty...and cross country skiing sounds like fun. Downhill, not so much. That scares me. But level ground (kinda), that actually sounds really appealing to me. Other than the whole freezing my butt thing. :D

185. I still only DREAM of that number....you're so close, huh? :)
