This week has been such a crazy one – super busy at work, decorating my place, and making over my kitchen. All good things, of course, but still a little stressful. I’m definitely looking forward to just relaxing this weekend!
Despite the chaos, I’m proud to say I got in my runs for the week. Which brings me to some exciting news – I’ve been accepted as a Girls Gone Sporty Ambassador! I’ve been a sporty girl since the day I was old enough to walk, and I’m stoked to be part of their online community.
I’m actually pretty flattered they accepeted me. This blog is still in its early days, and while I try to post as often as possible, life gets in the way now and then. Plus, I wasn’t sure if I was fit/active enough to be considered. I love being healthy, but I’m certainly not perfect.
I am, however, excited to connect with other bloggers that share my obsession. Those of us that love sports and being healthy just click on a deeper level. We get each other. We’re all crazy enough to work our asses off to be healthier, happier, stronger and sexier.
The best part (besides meeting more like-minded ladies, of course) is that this is extra motivation to keep up with my training and clean eating. I’m part of Team Stellar, and I gotta make my peeps look good! I especially want to share how easy it is to eat clean on a plant-based, whole foods diet.
Speaking of which – while I was in California, I totally forgot to share the heavenly, orgasm-in-your-mouth deliciousness that is Veggie Grill.
All of their food is completely vegan, but they’ve got all the fixn’s of any café-type place; mayo, ranch, cheese, bread, coleslaw, sauces, and even organic ketchup. You can go anywhere from a whole foods salad to burgers, buffalo chicken sandwiches and wings!
My mom got the Fiesta Salad with papaya, mango, spinach and quinoa (swoon.) Yeah, it totally blew her mind. It was soooo good and simple and just…ahhh. I ordered the spicy chicken sandwich as a wrap with spicy bbq ranch sauce and avocado and a side of coleslaw. It was so delicious that I made my picky eater, anit-vegan cousin taste it and he tried to eat the whole thing.
Anyways, I’m so happy to be taking my blogging and fitness to the next level. Like I said, we fitness fanatics are like-minded creatures – and I can’t wait to meet more of them.
