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!
Yesterday I signed up to do the #YU30 challenge via YumUniverse. It is a plant powered challenge from February 1st to March 2nd. 30 Days of whole food yumminess! I’m particularly excited about it because in our household we have been cutting out the dairy, processed sugar, gluten, and meat. We have been able to go about 2 weeks or more without every one of those products but usually give in to a BBQ here and there.
How does the #YU30 challenge work? It’s a way to work with others in the plant powered community to try something new, change your diet and even your life. To get started head over to the YumUniverse website and register. You will then be sent a starter pack that includes more information on how the challenge works, the prizes you could win, recipes, information on plant based diets, and so much more! It’s truly an incredible e-packet full of tons of useful every day information. And, IT’S FREE!
Why am I doing this? A plant powered diet is something we have been working towards for about 5 months now. While it is a process we have definitely seen some benefits in our household. More energy, clearer skin, fewer allergies, less farting (ha, yeah), and happier stomachs. We do still eat meat occasionally but when we do we spend a bit more on the grass-fed and organic products. It’s so much better than conventional meats. However, it is a rare occasion that we do consume meat. Cheese is consumed every so often, but again very rarely. We don’t have a full plant powered diet just yet, but it’s something we are working towards. I’m hoping #YU30 will speed us up to that point even more.
That being said! Follow along as I document and video all of our recipes, challenges and the changes we encounter. Nobody say’s it is going to be easy, but I would love it if you could join me and we can encourage one another! So head on over to the YumUniverse website to get all the details and get registered! Let me know when you do by following me here on my blog, Facebook Page and Twitter.
Cheers to Plant Powered Eating!
It’s a Lifestyle Change not a New Years Resolution.
I think there is no better way to invite a human being to view their body differently than by inviting them to be an athlete, by revering one’s body as an instrument rather than just an ornament. It’s a really great way to reorient how you see your body so you can see it as this incredible, awe-inspiring machine that you need to fuel well in order for it to function.
