You Still a Veg?..

DAY 137

“There is real magic in enthusiasm. It spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment.”
– Norman Vincent Peale

If you can visualize it, if you can dream it, there’s some way to do it.
–Walt Disney

Wednesday is almost complete – anyone else say “Wed-nes-day” in their mind when writing out the day?

M & I fieldtripped it over to Straw Valley today to meet my mommy. Really – M refers to her as “my mommy”. Pretty cute. I thought it would be a good place for us to go since there is a huge courtyard to run around in. And, boy, did he prove me right! The two of us ran around for a good 35 minutes, at least! At one point (followed by many, many more), M went back to the bamboo garden and said, “What’s that?” “A statue of Buddha.” “Hi, Buddha!”

M‘s mom was kind awesome enough to share a Gigi’s cupcake! I decided I’d finally try to eat it the proper way – you know, turn it upside down and smash it. Oh em gee! I’m going to be sticking to that plan. Totally worth it.

I took some pictures of the sunset on the way home after class. It was so gorgeous! And I could make out little cloud characters, which I’m not usually able to spot.

Today I also discovered that at least 2 more of my friends are also vegetarian! I’ve dubbed us “The Three(gie) Musketeers”, but we’re open to suggestions. Y is compiling a list of helpful tips and resources for B & me. I do my best to eat no meat – aside from the fact that I feel physically ill after eating a meal with a meat dish, I feel like a bad person after eating what once was a living creature. I’ve also been exposed to a bit of research about how eating a whole food, plant-based diet can be much better for your body. (That was all said from a very non-judging part of my soul! I promise. I rarely discuss my eating habits! If you like meat like Joey on Friends, go for it! – I’ve got the image of him eating Rachel’s triffle and saying, “Meat – gooood!”) I wanted to share one of the sites Y let me know about in case anyone else who reads this blog might be interested.

I’m very into Needtobreathe this week. Tonight’s stand out commuting song? “The Heat” – Enjoy!

I am thankful for: big courtyards. And cupcakes.


PS: I, a massage therapy student, have my first legit massage scheduled for tomorrow. I laugh everytime I say that. I cannot believe I’m half way through my program and the only bodywork I’ve received has been practice.

    So when you turn the cupcake upside down does any of the frosting stick to the plate? Also, I do say wed-nes-day in my mind when spelling it. And I love the picture on the highway, it gives me a very nostalgic feeling…

  1. I ate the cupcake with a fork, so I made sure there was no icing left on the plate. Haha! Thank you for the compliment! I wish I’d had my DSLR to take a better picture of the sunset – it was astounding.
