I'M 25!


The clean eating regime is paying off!! I'm up to 148 pounds!! I have religiously eaten raw vegan for breakfast the last month or so (except for that time I discovered vegan cinnamon rolls last week and ate the entire roll hehe). I'm physically starting to see a difference. Every single morning I start by taking my supplements, followed by a turmeric shot, a matcha green tea shot, a Green Superfood shot and than an Apple Cider Vinegar shot.

Afterwards, I make myself a smoothie consisting of frozen strawberries, bananas, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries, steelcut oatmeal, chia seeds, hempseeds, organic baby spinach, coconut water and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. This smoothie tastes DIVINE!
About 30 minutes later, I juice a half dozen carrots, a beet, a lemon, celery, an apple, kale, a cucumber, ginger and strawberries.
After I workout I make myself a protein shake and eat a Clif Builder's protein bar. Usually the mint chocolate flavor, because they're f'ing delicious and taste like a mixture of Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies and Snickers. And it's vegan! Winning.
I've been consuming a ton of nuts as my fat and protein intake. If I'm not muching on cashews or hazelnuts, I'm eating raw almond, cashew or peanut butter. I cut out bread and replaced it with organic, gluten-free bread. I've noticed that my face gets really red and itchy after I eat bread, so I think I may be allergic.
I'm slowly cutting out more and more processed foods and my body is thanking me!
Anyways, enough about food. I have so many exciting things in the works that I can't wait to share with you guys! I contacted a graphic designer to possibly collaborate with, to redesign my blog and give it a complete revamp and facelift!! I'm completely giddy with excitement just thinking about it! I feel like I've come a looooooong way since I made this blog 5.5 years ago, and I want it to reflect the person I am now!

Sidenote: I just switched my URL from to family has called me 'The Kid' my entire life, so I thought lifeofkid was fitting. I wanted a name that sort of encompassed everything that I talk about on my blog now: my art, dreams, story time posts, food, health, faith, fitness, etc., all the while being short, simple, catchy, easy to remember and spell. I hope you guys like it! I used GoDaddy to purchase & sync my new domain name for any bloggers that might be interested in doing the same thing.
I also did the most amazing photo shoot with my best friend Michelle this afternoon and the photos turned out INCREDIBLE!!! I'm going much bigger with this new drawing, than the typical 11"x15" I limited myself to for so long. The title is 'Heavenly View' and it's going to look stunning once it's complete. We brainstormed and came up with such a cool concept. I can't wait to share more details later. This drawing will be at least 16"x20", if not bigger!! Here's a pic from the shoot! I can't wait to finish it and make prints to sell once I find the perfect print shop!!! Ahhhhhh!

I have so many amazing things happening and manifesting in my life and I'm so thankful for everything God is doing in my life!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!
Much Love Guys! 

(and yes, April Fools Day is my birthday!)
