Well this week has been fabulous so far!!!
On Monday I decided to go outside of my comfort zone and take a HIP HOP CLASS!! hahah I love hip hop... but I dont feel as confident as I do in my theatre, jazz or lyrical (etc) classes. It was really fun... we did a sexy little number with lots of attitude... hahaha i actually did pretty well considering i NEVER do this style.
Tuesday I went into the city with my mom...And of course, there was a
freakin blizzard!!! We got like 6 inches of snow on Long Island. Of course
it was worse in the city because everything just gets soaked. I was wearing Uggs.. because I always slip when I wear my regular boots, and they got so wet.. my feet were soaking and my blister that I had on my foot was throbbing... ew so gross i know sorry for that.
BUT OTHER THAN THAT I had a great day!!! Mom, me, and my
two crazy aunts (well my moms best friends) went to Candle Cafe! I wish I had my camera.. i was so mad that I didnt.
I ordered something from the specials menu... it consisted of black beans,
mole, quinua, collard greens, and cajun seitan... YUMMMM
Mom got a bowl of their thick and hearty chili with corn bread. Wow it looked amazing.
The only thing i hate about going to these restaurants is that I am so limited to what i can have. I am allergic to so much that its hard to find something different that I can eat. I usually order the same thing but luckily there was something on the specials that I could have.. and it was AWESOME!!! I also hate that I cant have any of their deserts as they
ALL contain some sort of soy or nut product.. oh well... i can
always make my own :)
After dinner, mom and I went to see "South Pacific". It was probably the best show I have ever seen... and I've seen lots of shows. It was so so so so beautiful a
nd classic and AHHH!! it was amazing! We sat in the fro
nt row which I usually hate, but I loved it this time! I actually felt like I was part of the show...:)
On Wednesday I went on an audition. It was for Funny Girl at the Westchester Broadway Theatre... I got through all of the cuts... I read... I sang... I danced two combos... i felt really good about it... so Hopefully I hear something back from them. Its so hard in this bus
iness because you can never tell what they are thinking...of course I pick a career full of uncertainty.
Ok...so now some explanation for my title. Yesterday, followed by my morning run, I was lucky enough to have a body treatment and a facial (both organic). I had my entire body exfoliated, scrubbed, detoxified..they literally wrapped me in this plastic stuff, and covered me with three layers of heavy blankets... one heated and one that keeps heat in..! After both treatments my skin was so so so soft and totally clean. It was awesome!
I decided that since I was having a "Winter Cleaning" of my body, I might as well do a raw food detox! I usually do these one day a month, but i decided to try to do it for a week (minus tonight because its Anthony's birthday and I have reservations at a really nice restaurant)...so here are my eats from yesterday!
Breakfast: I woke up and decided to have a super awesome smoothie
This beauty contained a frozen banana, half a frozen mango, and some fresh papaya...it was so yum and delish!!! it actually held me over through my run, and my facial/body treatment.
By three I was STARVING.. I came home... cleansed and feeling wonderful, and whipped myself up this beauty...
doesnt it look great!!! it tasted even better than it looked.
Baby field greens, sliced avocado, papaya, mango and celery topped with a little bit of pomegranate balsamic...YUMYUM YUM... it had such a clean and refreshing taste... i loved it so much!
was from One Week Raw... she has a great free e-cook book that you can download... i made the Mango Lettuice wraps... (from day 7). I cant follow the cleanse completely because of all of the nuts used, but I can pick the ones that look good to me and try them out!!
The lettuce wraps were amazing. The marinade was to die for...I soaked the veggies in it for about a half hour and they became soft...it seemed like they were cooked
I will definitely be making them again!!!
I took a cabbage leaf, or a romaine lettuce leaf, spread a thin letter of avo spread, and topped that with the vegetables....Im such a fan!!!!
This morning I had some Raw pancakes (last post)...and now I'm about to hit the gym!!!
till next time :)
