March is awesome!! I always love Birthday months. Beside the fact that it goes by so fast! I can’t believe it’s been 13 days since I blogged. Yikes! However it has been really sunny and nice so my only excuse is that I’ve been outside.
So, I turned 27. I must say it’s pretty awesome. On my birthday it was a little nerve wracking to be heading into my late 20’s. I went for a 4mile run and averaged 7’15 per mile like zombies were chasing me. No, it was just age.
I have some pretty awesome things coming up! Ragnar Relay is in less than a month. I can’t wait to see all my close friends! We are also moving it just a little over a week. I’m working on packing and cleaning. Luckily it’s only a mile away. We are also getting ready for a trip to Baja in early May! So excited for that one. I have to say, 27 is going to be my best year yet. I’m also almost done with my studies for my personal training cert. It’s been a long time coming, but I’m almost there.
My apologies for the lack of posting. You can expect more posts from me! And please if you can, vote for my #YU30 finisher video! You can vote once a day every day until March 31st.
Have an awesome Wednesday!
The #YU30 challenge is over but plant powered eating has only just begun! This challenge has made me feel better, train better and enjoy prepping my meals!
If you could please take a second and vote for my video here, it would be greatly appreciated! I would absolutely love to win this challenge and continue to share my excitement for plant powered eating!
Have a great Thursday!!
I can’t believe it’s almost been 30 Days of #YU30! It’s amazing how quickly time goes by. This challenge was such a wonderful start for both me and my husband! Plant powered eating provides such an amazing benefit to our bodies. I feel better, I sleep better and my cooking skills have improved immensely!
To end the challenge I wanted to make my favorite dish from YumUniverse. The dairy free, meat free black bean enchiladas. It was a hit when I made them and I couldn’t pass on not finishing the challenge with enchiladas. If you haven’t made these before, you must! So much flavor.
I’m not going to say too much more about the challenge as I want to save that for my 2 minute challenge completion video. So stay tuned!
This is a good one! My greatest friend Felicia and I at our first ever National Swimming competition in 2001. We were so star struck by our favorite swimmers. We even stood behind Tom Wilkins block and cheered for him. He thanked us and it meant the world! Ah yes, to be young!
This last Monday and Tuesday I was lucky enough to be apart of a photo shoot for Camelbak! A woman who works out at the same gym as I do works at Camelbak and needed models, so I volunteered myself to be apart of it! Doing something you love for a photo shoot is pretty darn awesome.
The shoot took place around Chrissy Field and back up by the GG bridge (see photo above!) as well as up in Petaluma and in the headlands. Can’t really complain about the views we had and the gorgeous weather that filled the Bay Area.
Yeah, see?! Gorgeous views! Such amazing weather we are having.
Ok, back to the shoot. We were shooting photos for the Camelbak fuel belt and marathoner pack summer edition. It was a lot of running and stopping, running and stopping, and more running. Which is great! However my knees and calves sure took a beating from all the stopping.
The photographer was great! He was giving me all kinds of tips and let me know when I needed to speed up or lean forward. Scott is a big time photographer for companies like Salomon. He also does tons of skiing and mountain biking. Not a bad way to travel around!
I did much better the second day. I wasn’t quite as stiff but still a little sore. Couldn’t sit down for too long otherwise my legs didn’t want to move.
I also gave my lovely PocketFuel Naturals a product plug in the shoot. The crew was looking for things to stuff in the marathoner, so I gave them a pocketfuel to put in the front pouch. Couldn’t help it! I love PocketFuel!
I hope in the near future to have the photos that were shot so I can show you! The ones I did see were great! They are looking to use them in a print ads, website or at expos. So if I spot it, I will be sure to show you!
Overall I had a great time! I hope to do more of these. Especially in such great weather! Now it’s back to training at Luma fitness and getting ready for Ragnar! Woot!
I sure am! Doin my best to study every day :)
