Meeting goals and gaining strength!

I had an amazing run today! I felt strong, fast and powerful!

4.55 miles in 40:35!
Mile 1
 
– 9:06
Mile 2 – 9:21
Mile 3 – 8:41 !!!
Mile 4 – 8:38 !!!!!!
Mile .55 – 4.46

I cannot believe I am seeing my miles below 9 minutes! I am so happy about this and it only makes me want to keep getting stronger and faster. I run a trail and has a lot of little, but steep, hills. It is doing wonders for my backside 😉

I started off this rocking day with some tofu.

The norm – sautéed onion, red bell pepper, tofu, spices and a side of toast with avocado. Toast with avocado is sooooo much better than butter! Even fake butter!

Seattle’s weather has been pretty crappy this week and because of this I have been craving hit soup. I started pulling vegetables out of my fridge and came up with a fantastic vegetable soup!

I will post the recipe tonight Here is the recipe – it is very fresh and lively tasting! I had a small bowl before my run. Powered by veggies!! haha

I had a snack this afternoon which consisted of a bowl of cereal.

So, what happens when you haven’t checked the mail box in… 4 days? You get a ton of pleasant surprises!

Rick from Book Publishing Company contacted me a few weeks ago asking me if I would like to receive some books for review. Free cookbooks? YES PLEASE!

I picked 2 vegan and 2 raw cook books. Living in the Raw, Raw for Dessert, Local Bounty and Sweet Utopia. I have spent the entire evening drooling over pictures and planning out future meals. They are all wonderful books and I cannot wait to start cooking! I especially love Living in the Raw – the recipes are very simple with easy ingredients. I want to eat more raw as I feel my best when I eat this way. I really need a dehydrator, now!

I also was happy to see these magazines, too.

My weakness are magazines. I love them. I save each and every issue for YEARS! I always reference back to them from time to time and find joy in reading the material – it never seems to get old or be dated.

Dinner was another bowl of beans, rice and avocado.

Here is a video that I forgot to upload a few days ago. J is talking so much! He is such a little character, too. 😉

Some of you may have seen my facebook message about my Amazon store. I am very excited about this! I am still adding items but I wanted to team up with Amazon to enable me to showcase my favorite items; from cookbooks, kitchen items and health and beauty. I am still adding products and will let you all know when I do.

I actually purchase quite a bit from Amazon. With their unbeatable pricing and free shipping, you can’t lose! Plus, they are a Seattle based company, did you know that? Yup, good ole Seattle. =)

Do you purchase online?
