Re: msmoon's fitness journal

It was in the mid-50s and sunny - perfect weather to be outdoors. My boyfriend and I walked to a route we mapped out last week; a nearby nature park that features a 1.5 and 2.3 mile gravel loop. In all, we walked a little over 5 miles if not more since we stopped past the grocery on the way home. Go...

Re: msmoon's fitness journal

I haven’t been as active as I would have liked. My dog has been having health issues. I’m worried, sad, and just not in a good mental space. I’ve taken lots of long walks, both with my dog, my boyfriend, and by myself. I get the results from his blood panel Monday, which also happens to be the first...

Re: msmoon's fitness journal

Another crazy day at work. Afterwards, went for a brisk walk with my boyfriend to the library then the grocery store, about 4 miles. The yoga studio I go to was booked for a party this evening so I’ll try to get out there sometime this weekend.

Re: msmoon's fitness journal

My initial plan was to check out a tentative walk/run route near my office after work, but after a frustrating morning I decided to go during lunch break. I’m glad I did - not only did I defuse a stressful situation by going outside and getting some fresh air, I found this to be a nice, walkable/run...

Re: Bittman: Go 'semi-vegan'

On one hand, I'm glad Bittman is getting the V word out, but part of me gets annoyed by articles like this because they focus solely on the dietary aspects of veganism and seem temporary (i.e., "I'll go vegan for x amount of time, but ultimately resume eating animal products.") Perhaps all...

Re: msmoon's fitness journal

Oh hai winter. You’re here. Seriously, after I noted how mild the weather’s been I wake up to gusting winds, snow, and temps in the mid-20s. My boyfriend, who initially agreed to accompany me on short walks and runs, bailed, so I walked from my house to a nearby park (two miles total) which took me ...

msmoon's fitness journal

Happy new year! One of my objectives this year is to run a half marathon, or 13.1 miles, by May. This is going to be an interesting challenge. I walk whenever possible, but I haven’t run long distances for some time. I started to get interested in running after hearing about Couch to 5K programs, bu...

Re: Most influential Books you've read

Slaughterhouse by Gail Eisnitz and Howard Lyman's Mad Cowboy were influential when I was transitioning to a vegan lifestyle. Work has crept into my reading time, but a book that made a lasting impression was Planetwalker by John Francis. Part travel journal, part sketchbook, it's an interesting memo...

Thanks, Robert and Karen! I'm slowly making my way through the information on the 12 Days of Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness boards and clarifying my fitness intentions for the upcoming year. I look forward to participating!

Hello!

Hi Everyone! I recently ordered Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness and came across the 12 Day Challenge. I am in need of some motivation so this is a wonderful coincidence. A little about myself: Female, early 30s. Went vegan in 2007, primarily for ethical and environmental reasons. Little did I know ...
