That moment during your long run when you realize you are wearing an old shoe and a new one.
Yeah, this happened today.
Note to self: Buy different color shoes.

Making memories and shopping lists: #myveganjourney 60 day Update!

Okay, let's start with the obvious: I need to go
shopping immediately.
Throughout my weight loss journey, leggings and dresses have been outfit staples. There are times, however, when I like to wear pants. This past Tuesday was one of those days. Judging by the looks of the photo to the left, I should've made another decision. lol.

So, this weekend two things will happen: 1.) I will be donating clothes and 2.) I will purchase jeans and a pair of slacks.

For my #visionboard2012, I listed that I wanted to qualify for the ING New York City Marathon, and here is where I revisited said goal. I have received confirmation and I'm IN!

Let the good times begin. :)

Giddy Up!

My 3 year old cousin loves horses, so I thought I'd surprise him with a trip to see a few. Many thanks to Mrs. Barbara for letting all of us spend time with Gypsy, Shadow, Lil' Bit and Rufus. It was a memorable day indeed. Click read more to see additional photos from our family fun day.

The True Test

Tomorrow it's about to go down. {in my Kevin Hart voice}

I am heading home to spend a long weekend with my mom, fur kiddos, family, and friends. This time around; however, things will be quite different. When I left the Carolinas on January 7th, I was an omnivore, and now I'm returning a vegan.

I've often wondered how my first visit home would be after starting my vegan journey. Before trips home were filled with {numerous} stops to Bojangles, Chick-fil-a, Krispy Kreme, Fatz Cafe, Sonic Drive Inn, Waffle House, Lynn's Drive Inn, Carolina Cafe, Outback Steakhouse, Texas Roadhouse...well, you get the picture.

Now, that I'm #aboutthatvegan life, what's a girl to do?

Princess Lizzie takes on Disney

On Sunday, February 24th, I completed my second half-marathon of 2013. It was the Disney Princess Half-Marathon and it was AMAZING! I came to know about Run Disney during an expo for the AJC Peachtree Road Race in July 2012. Inspired by the fabulous bling, I made the decision to not only run a race, but I also planned to participate in the Coast to Coast Challenge. I've heard nothing but great things about the Disney races and figured why not!
