#myveganjourney - 30 day Update!

January 2013
February 21st marked my one month veganversary. To be honest, some days it feels like it's been longer than 30 days. There has been so much detoxing and growth that has occurred over the past month that I feel anxious (in a good way) about what's to come in the next 60. My coach, Lasse, has provided tons of support, inspiration, and perspective. It's made this journey that much more enjoyable.

In the beginning, he asked about our goals. I only had one -- to lose weight.  Little did I know it wasn't going to be 'physical' weight that I'd lose in the first month.

In my previous post, I listed my weight and measurements, and I did the same thing the morning of Feb. 21st. However, a funny thing happened. I didn't feel discouraged at all when I realized I only lost .4 pounds**. I guess it's because overall I felt lighter emotionally. I was able to rid myself of baggage that I didn't realize I was carrying. This was something I hadn't prepared myself for.

Photos: ING Miami Half

Let me start off by saying how much I LOVE Miami. This was my first time visiting the city, and I'm pretty sure it won't be my last.  I thoroughly enjoyed being in the city and discovering it on foot.

Below are a few photos. I hope to run this Half again next year. It was totally worth it.
