Scream - Positive Energy

So, I have just downed my 4th cookie of the day.  I think I could easily shove about 5 more down without even gagging myself.  The kiddos got out of school early due to the high wind advisory along with more snow.  Yeah, more snow! 

Here is my good buddy Max - I think he is saying "WTH"

The past few days we have racked up 16 more inches, and you know what that makes me do?  Eat cookies. . . . lots of cookies!
I did my 5am workout this morning.  I think that calls for at least 4,000 calories of cookie consumption.

 I know that this blog is about being positive and having a great outlook on life.  Well, let's just say that we are taking a small break from that word.  Have you read the book "The Secret"?  I totally believe in the principals behind the book. 
So I walked outside and took a couple snap shots of the snow situation. 
Now, I am giving off positive energy . . . . thinking of a warm beach . . . . . .cookies . . . . . bikini (well, maybe not yet) . . . warm beach.  After a long winter of being cooped up inside "I LONG FOR A BEACH"! 

Yeah, it measures around 5'
My positive thoughts are currently focused on warm riding weather.  Alright, back to the positive attitude.  Thanks for letting me vent.

All WORK and NO play -

As you are aware, I have not updated the blog in a very long time.  This is sadly due to the fact that I have been working 24/7.  I am serious when I say 24/7!  Remember a while back I was trying to decide on which job to keep and which to ditch.  Well, I have been working endlessly on my plan.  I never thought it would require so much effort, lack of exercise, and a lifelong endless painting scheme.  Yeah, painting - so fun. 

My husband Brian is truly an amazing man. 

(old pic, but oh so cute - Bri with the boys)
He taught me the importance of hard work.  When we owned and operated the bike and snowboard shop he would go to work early - before the world was out of bed, and come home late - when all the world was sleeping.  He worked harder than his competition and it showed.  To this day he is the hardest working individual I know and builds the most beautiful bikes I have ever layed eyes on.  

The past few weeks we have been remodeling a building next to the bike shop.  This studio is going to be the new

I know that hard work = no play, but man . . . . I'm needing some exercise!  Thanks for all of your e-mails and comments.  They keep me going.  They make me want to work harder.  I know that true gratification comes from working hard.  But I also know that staying sane means adding a little play.  This weekend I'm heading to the mountain to go shredding with my boys. 

A little fresh air will do me good.  Can't wait for a new WORK week.

Welcome to a new attitude in women's cycling and a first in women's specific titanium and steel custom bikes. We know females....because we are females. All women share a common interest. We want to feel comfortable, confident, and strong on our bikes. We also want to look good while riding hard. At Bellarosa we build bikes to fit you using only the finest materials. Our bikes our built in house one at a time from start to finish. 100% handbuilt in the U.S.A. So guess what? We no longer have to ride boy bikes. It's alright to want to ride a bike designed specifically for you. At Bellarosa we can build your dreams.
