First thanks for all of the congrats!!! It makes me feel so great :)
Raw food week went well I think.
I crave smoothies in the morning... by lunch time I am pretty hungry, but really am not in the mood for solid food yet. On friday I tried to have a salad... got full after a few bites.. and then whipped myself up another smoothie! My raw food week was cut short by a "We have to go out and celebrate!" From the boyfriend. But its all good I suppose :)
We went to a sushi place where I ordered 4 different veggie sushi rolls :) YUM YUM YUM!
All in all, by the end of my week I feel great. My weight keeps fluctuating.. but it does every day so watever.. Does anyone elses weight fluctuate like crazy???
So the sad news is I had to drop my personal training course. The even worse news was that I still had to finish the anatomy portion of it... so I sat in a class room from 930-330 on valentines day!!!
For lunch I rode over to Chipotle for my favorite salad! Usually I can eat the whole thing.. today?? couldnt even eat half... verdict.. did my raw food affect my eating habbits???
Ok OK...so last night anthony and I went out to one of my favorite restaurants Tuals Kitchen. If you live on LI you have to go there!!!! I had Seitan Marsala over Israeli cous cous and brocclarabe. (I cant spell).... :)---(no picture because It was crowded and I was sort of embarrassed!)
WELL In other news I was given an award from the beautiful Lauren at Ginger is the
New Pink!!! I'm so honored :)!!! So in Honor of this award I have to post 7 things that I love
1) I love my parents:
I know this is kind of cliche... but I am lucky to have the most supportive parents out there.They are my biggest supporters. They love me unconditionally and push me to be my very best.
2)I Love my boyfriend:
Ok another cliche. He is just so wonderful. I know I talk about him all the time on my blog, but he really is my best friend in the whole wide world. He knows me better than anyone, and is always the first person to say..."suck it up and go for it"
3)I love performing:
Ok ok i know..."vegan on stage" you all could figure
this out. But it really is my true passion. There is truly no feeling like getting on stage and giving your all. my other favorite part of it is during Rockettes.. when a little girl comes up to me after the show and says "I want to be just like you when I grow up." ....its humbling.
(Thats me in the middle of the pic)
4)I Love my friends:
Duh... doesnt everyone? But me and my friends are more like family. We really do everything together.. we have been friends since freshman year of high school.. which is crazy to think its almost 9 years....! Im really lucky to have them
(These are two of my best friends...Cristy and Kate)
5) I love the beach:
I grew up on the water. I live around the corner from the bay, and we always had a boat when I was growing up. There is nothing quite as calming as sitting on the beach... at say 4:00... when its still warm out, but theres a strong breeze.. and the sun is lower in the sky...it really is my sanctuary
6) I Love my dog:
My dog Cody is the closest thing I have to a br
other. Seriously, my dad treats him like he is human..(heck we all do) hes 10.. but hes got the personality of a puppy and I just love love love him.
i mean common how could you not love that cute face!!!
7)I Love living a healthy life:
Health is such a huge part of my life. I thrive on the endorphins I get from exercising or dancing. I look foward to creating healthy meals... and there really is nothing that makes me feel much better than passing on the knowledge I have gained to others. If I can influence someone else to be vegan then it was a good day!!!
So Now I have to nominate 7 people! sheesh this is tough!
Erin from Vegan and the City
Evey from Vegan Nurse
Natalie from Talieworld
Lauren from Vegan Gal
Kristie from Lighter Portions
Julz from Simple and Devine
Katie from Chocolate Covered Vegan
Honestly I just went through my google reader and was like WOW I really do have connections with most if not all of the people on here...
I think we're all really lucky to have this network of people :)
Happy valentines day!!!!
