B: smoothie: spinach, water, msm, sun is shining, mango, 1/2 banana, mesquite cacao, and blueberries (aubbie- i made this before our chat!)

40 minutes jumping and dancing to neil diamond with eliot- seriously hilarious!!

L: 2 apples and i thought i'd eat some greens but i was craving the vegan boca pattie i spotted in the freezer. i heated that up with broccoli and peas

ran 4 miles

s: banana, quarter size handful of cacao nibs and small handful of goji berries

went to the park for an hour workout- loads of stairs!!

D: kalga cafe- coconut and mango smoothie and wakame salad. i also had a few bites of andy's green curry.

d: i stopped by the vegan bakery for a treat. i had told myself two days ago that after my tattoo appointment i'd get something sweet but all i wanted to do was go home after my inking! so tonight i brought home a piece of cake. i didn't eat it all- so sorry sweetpea but it wasn't that good.

my legs are going to be sore tomorrow!!

“I ran and ran and ran every day, and I acquired this sense of determination, this sense of spirit that I would never, never give up, no matter what else happened.”

– Wilma Rudolph

yes, yes. i am so grateful that i'm learning how to run, i am so grateful that my body will run. and i never want to stop. i ran my first ever six miles last weekend and i'm still thrilled over it. running rocks.

side note: i was  going to wait to post this until the end of the week, but it's getting a little long. you get a gold star if you make it to the end!

on my birthday this week i began a new way of eating, and the week before i began a new training regimen.

first off, i'm using a book to increase my running mileage to possibly run a marathon. it's a 16 week plan where you run 4 days a week and the forth run of the week is your long run. i'm in week two. last week i ran 15 miles and this week i'll go 16.

my slight change in diet is to eat 98% raw until dinner time when i'll eat a (most likely) cooked vegan meal.

so here's what i ate this week:
tuesday: a tablespoon of E 3 live (a supplement), an apple, a banana and a raw chocolate truffle- all before noon
             a big salad at blossoming lotus with nuts and veggies, a rice paper roll- this had cooked tofu in it. for dessert
             i had chocolate mousse, also not raw but it was my birthday!
             dinner was at nutshell, i had a kale and chard cooked salad and a quinoa and peach stew. dessert was more
             chocolate this time a torte.

wednesday: a tbs. of E 3, an apple, a raw truffle and a pear.
                  got the new blender out and made a spinach, apple, kiwi and maca drink! that thing can blend! and a 
                  piece of raw fudge from blossoming lotus.
                  early dinner was leftover quinoa stew i threw some broccoli in
                  snacks- a chocolate cupcake and a pumpkin cookie

thursday: smoothie- one kiwi, package of fresh blueberries, one lemon, one lime, vanilla extract, vanilla creme stevia,  pinch of pink crystal salt, maca powder, E 3, bag of spinach and coconut oil.
                lunch- a cucumber, red pepper, cilantro salad from whole foods that i put on top of a pile of romain. raw fudge for dessert.
               dinner- cooked kale, red chard, broccoli, red pepper and garbanzo beans with curry and garlic. dessert was 
               a piece of dave's killer bread with a little pb&j
* another side note, i was very fatigued on my run this morning. i didn't listen to music, so i think that was part of it. but, after my massive drink this morning i've just felt amazing! i've been quick thinking and i can't explain this "clean" sort of feeling. my nose has been a bit runny which i read is pretty common when eating more raw and cleansing foods. i'm trying to eat a bit more today then i did yesterday because i don't think i had enough calories. i love to eat!

What are some charitable causes that you support or would like to support?

we give to environment california. there are so many worthy causes i'd love to find more races i could run with donation options. i feel so lucky to be able to help in any way.

yesterday i wore a splendid long sleeved creamy tissue tee with a creamy sweater corset over it and my purple angel cords. e and i went to a vivienne westwood exhibit in sf with some new friends!

when andy got home he and e went around the block for a little night walk. eliot watched the moon from the corner of his eye and told daddy, "the moon's following me."

tuesday i wore my blue cords with a stripey top from urban outfitters. very 80's looking with small heart shaped white plastic buttons on it.
