#MoveHappy in the Mountains

Being in the mountains mandates some #MoveHappy action.


It’s downright chilly in places!

This week of #MoveHappy I joined forces with Heather!  Literally – I spent the entire week in Colorado.  Here’s just a quick showing of what we did:

Of course, we also fueled with plenty of good food.  I don’t think it’s possible to have bad food in Colorado.

This is dinner at The Fort before we went to see an ABBA cover band at Red Rocks.  I celebrated National Tequila Day appropriately, then we shared peanut butter stuffed pickled jalapeños, a “Mountain Man Sausage Plate” (buffalo, wild boar with cranberries and apricots, and Jackalope sausage with habeñero chiles and cherries with chipotle honey mustard and sweet chile dipping sauces)salad with jicama and pepitas, veggie tamales, and bison sirloin. And then we played in the yard.

Our pre-rafting breakfast was an epic version of my Waffle House favorite at Daylight Dounuts in Breckenridge.

Sweet Potato Waffle topped with #yolkporn and a side of bacon. We split a chocolate frosted sprinkled donut as an appetizer. Breakfast of champions!

We ended an epic weekend by taking in a show at Red Rocks – Mary Chapin Carpenter and the Indigo Girls played with the Denver Symphony!  It was unreal how fabulous it was.

Hiking up to the venue was hard after the 14’er, but a big ass burrito bowl, beer, and an incredible evening of music made it all better.

There’s a LOT more to share, but for now I must go to bed.  After talking a bit about this week’s prizes!  Once again we have my favorite Quest bars… and this week we also have Sizzlefish!  I love Ron at Sizzle fish – he’s 100% committed to offering a high-quality, delicious product.  I truly look forward to receiving these boxes.

Their Omega-3 Protein Mix is my go-to.  It includes Coho Salmon, Atlantic Salmon, Sablefish, Trout, Catfish, Atlantic Cod, and Haddock.  Did you know that a diet high in fish, particularly fish high in Omega 3 fatty acids, enhances athletic performance and health?   It’s perfect for training fuel!

Sizzlefish’s fish are frozen at the peak of quality, pre-portioned, and shipped on dry ice.  I can pull them out as needed during the week for quick and easy dinners.  And one lucky winner will win a boxy this week!  Just head over to Heather’s blog and leave a comment telling us how you #MoveHappy this week!

Winner, winner chicken dinner!

You didn’t think I forgot, did you?  The winner of last week’s #MoveHappy prizes – a Growing Naturals protein prize bag and a box of Quest bars – is….


Brittany!  Send me an email with your mailing address and phone number so we can get your prizes to  you ASAP!


I am SO SAD I’m flying home today!  Colorado is pretty marvelous.

Have you ever been whitewater rafting?

Are you a fan of hiking?

    Eggs on waffles…geniusss! I was out for brunch yesterday and was actually thinking that I should have ordered a side of runny eggs to eat with my chocolate chip pancakes- next time for sure! It’s been far too long since I’ve been hiking but I am sure I’d love it! The last time I went was the days before exercise became a part of my life- needless to say, I hated the experience haha!

    You need to stop peppering my facebook…..i’m getting envious on all accounts- literally. White water rafting looks bloody epic.

    Okay those eats…call my memory good but I remember making your Jalapeno poppers with TOFU- and now I want to add a peanut butter sauce.

    I’ve had a blast keeping up with you and Heather through all of your pictures on IG! The scenery is gorgeous and y’all look live you’ve had a bunch of fun adventures :) I’ll have to make a big effort to get out there sometime soon, preferably in the spring/summer, to visit my brother… Post-baby, that is.

      I think it is… but it’s one of those nostalgic things. Someone who didn’t grow up on it (or someone who is sober) might not appreciate it in the same way. I’d be interested to see what you think thought!

    Your trip looked like so much fun!! I loved checking out the pics you both shared. … and the peanut butter stuffed jalapeños ate beyond Yum and can’t wait to play with them more when we get back and I can play in my kitchen!
