This email is coming to you straight from the Brighton Ski Resort parking lot where a winter storm is definitely in effect!
Here’s what I found fun, interesting, or noteworthy this week.
My latest podcast –
AAJ 235: When it’s right to take an off season from working out
This is for you hard charging people that can remember the last time they took a full week away from the gym.
If you’re just trying to create the habit of working out… you could still learn something here, but it’s not directed at you.
And if you know this is for you… LISTEN UP!
My new toy –
After reading countless reviews, and talking with multiple experts, I finally bought a new snowboard. And I went with the all mountain board, Lib Tech T. Rice Pro HP.
After riding for years, I always had the idea that if you were good… you could ride anything. And to some extent that is true. But holy smokes does this board improve my riding. It tracks great, is poppy, and I feel way more in control. So much fun!
Healthy snack I’m loving –
A few weeks ago I told you I was snacking on the bulk Whole Foods Paleo Granola. Well, I’ve stepped it up and needed to tell you about it!
I’ve been taking some Fage 5% yogurt, organic blueberries (which aren’t in season, but we’ve found some awesome batches), and the Whole Foods Paleo (low sugar) Granola… mix it up, and you’ve got some high quality protein, fat, and carbs right there.
Oh, and it’s delicious!!!
Side note: I’ve also tested this with the Trader Joe’s goats milk yogurt and had success ;-).
Thought I’ve been pondering –
I’m currently reading the book Start With Why, and they said “studies show that over 80% of Americans don’t have their dream job”.
I’m wondering why this is so lopsided. And why people aren’t constantly in pursuit their dream job, and what makes them feel great about what they do.
Anyway, I hope that you are one of the 20% with their dream job, and if you are not… I’m hoping that you’re trying to find it. Because once you do, you’ll be on fire!
That’s what I have for you this week. If you need anything at all please let me know.
