Hi everyone !
I'm a 23-years old girl from Paris, France. I'm a law student and complete sportaholic.
I became vegan in 2009, when I realized my vegetarian diet was still a killing uncompassionate diet.
I'm kind of addicted to my Gym. I have a true love for fitness, and most of all, to Body Attack. I also run, and my very dream is completing an Ironman.
Well... that was before this summer, because I've somehow had a tibial stress fracture. I knew it since may, the MRI confirmed it in july.
No fitness, no running, almost no walking for two months... I decided to use this "no cardio time" to lift weights. And I actually love it. I spent hours on the Internet learning about diet and lifting, and read Robert Cheeke's Vegan Bodybuilding and fitness.
Of course, from 10-15 hours high intensity cardio/week to 2 hours low intensity cardio + lifting... I have build muscles, but also put bodyfat on, since I dit not want to starve myself. I'm ok with it, because I know it will go out of my body when I'll be back in Body Attack and running.
Today I went for a 5 minutes very easy run, and my physio believes I'll be completely ok in october.
I won't stop lifting, and there I am. I'm going to open a "journal" topic, and add my diet, workout, and progress pictures (or maybe should I open another topic for that ? please tell me !).
I would really love to have feedback, and look forward
