Well lets see.........
My name is Randall
I have been vegan for about 10 years now.
I just recently moved to Portland about 6 months ago from
Orange County, CA with my girlfriend Michele who is also been
vegan for 1 year. As far as my training goes, I have done some different
things on and off. I started out young just lifting, and then a while after that progressed into Jiu Jitsu for a couple of years. Then for financial reasons I had to stop. I would say this point was when I was in the best shape of my life. I was playing tennis in High School and doing jiu jitsu 3-4 times a week. I weighed about 215. This is where my weight loss goal is focused right now. I would like to get back to that weight, and physical ability. i.e. I have always struggled with my flexibility, but for that short period of time I was doing pretty well. I am still pretty young, almost 23 and I just started doing jiu jitsu again and would like to lose weight to help benefit my game. Let me start out by saying my cardio is HORRIBLE. I can barely run 3 blocks without gassing.
Right now I am at 275 and would eventually like to get down to 215 maybe even 205 if possible. I would like to be down to 225 by the end of the year.
Anyways enough about that,
Here is some personal info.
