We were both were so proud we voted for Dr. Jill Stein of the Green Party (see why in my previous blog) and proudly wore our "I Voted" stickers to the gym and during our work out!
At the gym, I was extremely elated at the possibility that Obama would win the Presidency. Although I didn't vote for him, I know he'll win California. I am both excited and nervous about today's elections and those feelings--believe it or not-- gave me so much strength and power during yesterday's workout (chest and abs)! I felt fabulous!
When we got home, I turned on the news (PBS) to follow up the election. I took out my camera and excitedly just started taking pictures of myself, hahaha! It was so much fun! I am just so proud of my votes today: Presidential, California's and Los Angeles County measures; I can't wait to find out the results!
I am also extremely, extremely grateful for having had the privilege to naturalize into a U.S. citizen and now exercised my right to vote.
