One More Week

Down to my last week. I've been super active and have been taking advantage of the nice weather because I know it's not going to last much longer. I love this time of year when everyone is so excited about the upcoming season and you can't go anywhere without it being mentioned. There's a new video premier every weekend and the anxiety starts rising. This year the big one is The Art of Flight by Travis Rice. It's going to change snowboarding forever and help our sport go mainstream. Everyone should watch this video! In case you didn't know, I grew up with Travis and went to high school in Jackson with him. He was older, and I didn't really hang out with his crew, but I do remember being in Rob Kingwell's freestyle camp when I was in 7th grade and remember Travis boosting out of the pipe so big and his coach said, "This kid's going all the way." And today he is the man pushing the sport. He was the first to put doubles into competition, and he's the first to create a video so good that everyone, even people who don't watch snowboarding, will want to see. I'm proud to have grown up remotely near him in a little town in Wyoming.
It's definitely been a struggle keeping up my commitment to my goal. I've broken some rules here and there and have had some sad thoughts about how far off I was from my goal. I was doing great for the first half, and then found myself in a plateau. I went down to 133 lbs at the best, then went back up to 136, now I've been at 134-135 consistently for the past two weeks. After I noticed that, I got pretty sad, and broke my rules by drinking soda and eating some candy. I didn't gorge myself, so I am happy about that, and I feel good about getting back on track. I still want to try to get down to 130 consistently, but that will take even more dedication. I try to look in the mirror more, and that helps my motivation. I want to be completely fat-free and I've always had a lil' extra in the belly. I think girls with a slight six pack is sexy and I want to eventually have that. I'm going to have to change and be committed 110%. But I think I can do it. I just have to keep reminding myself of my potential.
So the Arbor photo shoot is next weekend and I am so excited! It's going to be a blast hanging out with the crew again and meeting more of the Arbor family. Stay tuned to see how it goes! And thanks for your support and reading my posts. During the winter I will have more exciting things to write about, so keep reading and watching the edits! Hopefully I will be the next Ski Utah Park Rat Blogger and you can keep up with me and the Utah scene through!
