I'd rather be at the gym at this exact moment but I need one more day to recover. I've been vegan for 4-5 years. Used to be 238 or so and 36" waist. I went vegan and that peeled some weight off then started getting serious about being active and that dropped me down to about 168. I'm now up to about 185 and have kept a 30" waist or so with 14% bodyfat.
I lift 2x a week, play soccer, football, dodgeball, and try to run sometimes.
I'm 25 and working on a masters degree in education so I can teach social studies.
Will turned me on to this forum. I think it'll be good for me to have some inspiration since I'm changing gyms tomorrow. My old one close up shop on friday.
I've got poor gym habits but I'm regular. I don't keep a card with weights. I don't really track weights or reps well. I think it's more about just being sure to get in and push some heavy weight around for me. Monday or Tuesday and Friday are my lift days. I tend to go late in the evening so I don't have to share equipment. I used to work at a YMCA through high school and I developed a habit of working out after hours with the gym to myself... never really shook it.
Being vegan and being active are two of the best parts of my life. Or best decisions I've made. Or something to that extent.
My most immediate lifting goal is finding a way to get my recovery time down so I can lift 3x a week instead of 2. I love lifting
