P90X is kicking my butt!

So I decided to finally get off my ass and do something to get in shape for snowboarding. My wonderful idea is to do p90x, since it makes sense that it's almost exactly 3 months till the resort opens, and p90x is 90 days of ass-bustin exercise. I'm currently on day 2 and I'm so amazed at how hardcore it really is! Plyometrics was the workout today, and let me tell you, it's a muscle burner! I nearly passed out and I wasn't doing the exercises nearly as hardcore as the instructors were.

I know I can stick with it though. When I'm determined to accomplish something, it gets accomplished! Gonna be rockin' the slopes even harder this year for sure!

If anyone out there has actually completed the whole 90 days, and done it the right way, please leave a comment and let me know if it worked for you!

Thoughts & Quotes

"Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you do, you will be successful." - Herman Cain

I love that quote. When my family starts ragging me about pursuing my love for snowboarding, I think back to this quote. Sure, I probably won't make a ton of money teaching snowboard lessons, but that's not why I'm doing it. I want to ride. Every. Possible. Second. I enjoy helping others learn to love the same thing I love most about this earth. Snow, mountains, cold crisp air, and the nature that comes with it is so beautiful.

I know it's not everybody's favorite thing. Some of my friends won't come visit me in the winter because they hate the cold and snow so much. I can't blame them, I hate hot weather! haha.

Nothing makes me happier than flying down the mountain and making it my playground. I'm so fortunate that I've found someone who also shares the same love for snowboarding. The mountain brought me true love and happiness. What more could I ask for?

Deja Vu!

It's August. Yeah, no chance of snow for a while, but I'm going through some major withdrawals. It's getting closer to shred season and I'm getting antsy... I wanna ride!!

Burton's new website has been up for a few weeks, and I'm really pumped about their new Deja Vu V-Rocker snowboard. Here it is...

I want it! Lot the graphics and the tech on this board is awesome. Total park board.

That's all for now folks, pray for snow!

You are my shooting star...

Last night was amazing. Dustin and I went to the top of Beech to watch the sky for meteors. The Perseid meteor shower is happening now, with the peak being last night. 60 or more meteors per hour? Yeah, there's no way I was missing that one! It was beautiful! We only stayed for about an hour, but we saw SO many of them! We seriously lost count because they were happening so frequently. Definitely the best meteor shower I've ever experienced. What was even better was the fact that the clouds were all around us, except for a perfect circle of clear sky above us. It was like we were at a theatre, with the circle of clear sky as the stage. I hope all those wishes come true! :)

Best Buy can kiss my...

So my wonderful grandparents surprised me yesterday by taking me to Best Buy to buy me one of these... ...only to find out that it wasn't happening. Because they were SOLD OUT. How can they be sold out of Macbooks?! Seriously?! I've been wanting one of these Macbook Pros since they first came out, and I was SO CLOSE to getting one. They will still get me one, but it will be at least a month probably. And yes, I am very impatient. Haha. This is why I am bitching. Of course something would go my way for once and then NOT go my way. FML.
On a better note, my new shred jacket should arrive on my doorstep today! :) Super excited because it's the perfect jacket. It's the Bonfire Aura in Citron. Smooth style, functionality, and it's the color I want! Woohoo! Here is what I will be rocking this winter...

Model not included. ha.

Late night rambling...

Well fuck.

I had a nice long semi-drunken rambling post ready to publish, but this stupid m*ther f*cking laptop randomly decided to refesh the page, and *POOF!* No more post. Grrrr. Really pisses me off. I had worked like 45 min on that one!

Well I guess I better go to bed now before I get mad and break something *coughcoughlaptopcough*

So yeah. Tomorrow's the downhill mountain bike race at Ski Beech Resort, so I'll try to get some pics and have a good event post for it.

Goodnight all.
