I have been so ready for Friday since...last Friday. At least this week went by a little smoother than the last to. Only screw up was that I am/was sick. I am feeling better and my normal mass water/fluid intake seems to have keep everything at bay. Working out has kept me going strong this week too and I have felt great after everything so I know my body is enjoying it. I even got myself pretty sore, which I love! I guess it's from doing some new things, new weights, just switching it up from my home workouts. I even ate some really great food this week. I cooked my first new recipe, since I left home, yesterday and it was phenomenal! It included pumpkin...so you know it will be up on the blog this season 😉
Something I am totally excited about (next Saturday, the 20th) is the DC VegFest! I am planning my first Metro ride (alone) experience so I can get there right now, but I can't wait. I will be helping out at the PlantFusion booth, but also walking around and checking out all the awesome plant-based venders and companies! If you're in the area, let me know! I would love to meet you! 🙂
