Before & After Photos. Veganism/ Insanity/ P90X.

I had more than one brainstorming and evaluating how I spend my time sessions last week and although I have yet to decide if I came up with anything worth pursuing I did realize that I hate wasting time, which is probably why I don’t take naps or sleep in as often as I should. So while I planned, organized and sorted through my thoughts I made a blog calendar that will help me keep track of the things I want to share on this little corner of the web. I made sure to only fill the calendar with the things I truly enjoy talking/writing about, and if you’re wondering if those topics will only include cats & chocolate don’t worry, I didn’t keep things THAT “specific” but let’s be real, there’s going to be days that my two fat divas will be the center of my blog universe and dear Internet, I need to know that you will accept me as I am: a cat lady that doesn’t actually live with any cats. Yes!? Fabulous, let’s move on with the run-on sentences.

The plan or should I say HOPE? is to dedicate the start of every week to VLOGGING tidbits of my vegan lifestyle and different health/fitness goals that I’m working on. I’ve had a few people ask me about these things but the most encouraging are the people who have told me that I’ve motivated them to be more physically active or to explore a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle. I know right!?!? SHOCKING. I’m only a 5’1″ glitter lovin’, wanna be flying gypsy chick trying to get her wedding photography business going in Hawaii but if I can *ALSO* save one more animal by encouraging at least one person to include more plant based meals in their diet while setting fitness/health goals then hey, I’m all for it. Run-on sentences and all.

So here we go! Below is my first video of this Monday series that I have yet to name, enjoy! Some of the topics I’ll cover in the video below are…

-before and after veganism/ insanity/ p90x photos

-how i accomplished a two year goal

-being vegan

-feeling comfortable in a bikini

-having goals, even if a little vain, help keep you motivated

Happy Monday! Thanks for stopping by!

get it, girrrrrrl!

MARISSA!!! I meant to come on here way earlier and say how proud I am of you! You look happy and healthy!! Of course I thought you looked amazing before, so I don’t want to be one of those people that says “YOU LOOK SO MUCH BETTER NOW!” You looked amazing before and you look amazing now. =) I’ll need your help when I have this baby and want to get my body back. Lord knows…it’s going to be a challenge. =)

Your beauty shines through in both those images but there is a confidence and whole-bodiedness in that second one that is really striking. Thanks for sharing your process, goals and results. You’re inspiring for sure!
