Hey everyone =D !!
So I am Chloé, 21 years old and French (sorry for my bad English) =) . I do vet studies in Romania (love this country), I am in second year. I am vegetarian since like 5 years ago and vegan since 1 year. I always loved animals so for me it's obvious I won't eat them, I always thought being vegetarian would be super hard but I just tried once and I never ate meat again ... I just love this life, fighting for those who don't have a voice!
I was never super into sport but I always did. I have my horse so I ride since I am 7 and I did dance for a long time.
I am not fat or anything, 58 kg for 1m74, but I would love to see myself with more muscles and see disappear my love handles xD . I do sport 6 days a week, or at least 4 times when I don't have the time. I take some classes like Powerfit, Body Combat, Pilates, Circuit .. and when I come back to France I go to a club with machines for musculation and with classes too. When I can't go at the gym, I do some workouts at home with weights. When I have the time, I go swim too. Since I started to workout that much, it became essential for me, so most of the time I stay two hours at the gym =) .
I started to take protein powders from Pulsin' (it's a brand from UK), I really like them by the way =) . Maybe I'm gonna try the Vega after because everyone seems to love them ... I saw some vegan proteins from PinkProtein, someone know them ? And I try to take as much proteins as possible. For now I don't see super obvious results so I think maybe I still don't eat enough proteins .. I feel like yes, but I really don't know.. So there is my typical day :
Breakfast : Oatmeal with nuts, seeds (like hemp or chia), vegan milk and a spoon of protein powder and a smoothie with that, it's often with banana and spinach =)
Lunch : veggies, quinoa, tofu (it's usually pretty simple because I am in school). I like to do healthy wraps too but I think it's too much carbs .. Sometimes some cranberries and almonds for dessert!
Diner : veggies and tofu or seitan, a spoon of protein powder in chocolate soy milk if I did a workout before.
Unfortunately I am never hungry so I never take snacks between meals because I feel super full after, I take something only if I know I will have a big workout after .. And after a workout I try to eat as soon as possible something with proteins (Protein bars from Pulsin' are damn good!). Between meals I try to drink green tea or Oolong tea to boost my metabolism and drink as much water as I can, again I feel quickly super fool with water so I think the best I can do is 1,5 L/day , but I know it's not enough ..
I am in exams now so I'm quite busy, but I do my best to keep working out every day, even if it's just a little at home. But after I planned to do the Insanity Challenge by Shaun T, I can't wait to do it =D !!
Thank you for reading me !
