Thanks all. Marystella...check my squat thread in the photos section, I explain the plates under my feet in detail.
Today was another interesting day.
I stuffed myself last night, stayed up later than planned and then woke up earlier than planned. I had a check sent to me via FedEx and I had to sign for it at my friend's house. She said it could come as early as 930AM and she was leaving at 9. To avoid missing that window I got there at 9AM and sat in the sun waiting for my delivery. FedEx finally arrived more than 2.5 hours later.
After I got my check I went back to the hostel and picked up my luggage and hauled it around. I sold a couple of books to a local store and then got picked up from one of the Forks Over Knives staff members and ate lunch over at Whole Foods on Lincoln in Venice after I took my check to the bank. I ran to my friend's house and back and ran to the bank so I got at least a mile of running in and 5 or 6 straight hours of sun. My face, nose, forehead, arms and shoulders are sun burned at the moment. Oooops.
Forks Over Knives buddy took me to the airport and I flew to Portland, OR where Lean and Green picked me up and we went directly to the gym. I know, it's my off day...so we just sat in sauna, steam and hot tub.....then ate some fruit, met up with thendanisays and had a late night hangout eating vegan corndogs and tater tots
I did "diet" and do cardio for my photo and video shoots in Venice so I ate a ton of crap today and guess what....yep...you guessed it...I feel like crap. And I have incredible gas, even Lean and Green can't take it and he is co-president of the straight up gas institute (with me).
On my off day I ran, walked a ton and was still in the gym
I even stretched for minutes while standing in the aisle on the plane
I think I was a bit softer than I would have liked for my photo shoot and my tan was wearing off big time which I figured would happen, but we shot anyway.

I think the link will work. Just look up Eco Vegan Gal on Facebook. She posted images there.
It is almost 2AM and I'm filled with grease from tater tots and corn dogs and it's cold here...time to rest my sun burned face
