Wow, high protein for that amount of calories! What are you eating in a day like that? I need to get on your program! :)

I'm off to Canada in an hour or so, but we should train again sometime. I look forward to it.

I'll come downtown one of these days.

This was not the healthiest of days as far as variety of veggies. I only ate about 5 servings of fruits/veggies yesterday. And no grains. My morning smoothie is 400 calories and has about 56 grams of protein. I can easily eat a pound or more of high protein tofu in a day. Other protein powders also add up. To do this on a whole foods diet would not be possible at that low amount of calories. I'm not sure it's necessary but I'm experimenting with high protein right now.

I can always come to your gym - just not early evening when that place is too packed!

BW dips, very nice! Don't see many women who can do those.

I have to say though, SOD pretty much sucks. :P

It's taken a while to get there. Definitely a PB - and there was no one to high five.

SOD rocks. They're even good live. Maybe not all of their stuff.

I'm in New Jersey for 3 days - two of them will be rest days. I trained shoulders yesterday. I am missing my gym and Portland a LOT.

I won't be updating until next week. My whole schedule has been completely upset with family and legal obligations. If I don't see another airplane, hotel room or rental car again I will be a happy woman. There's no place like home...............

Seriously, hotels, planes, rental cars become something stale when not used on a vacation. I've had family emergencies in NJ too. Top it off with legal issues I can see where you are coming from.

I got lucky and found a decent gym down the street from our hotel. It's not the best but it will do in a pinch. I now realize that my current gym is the most well maintained and supplied gym I've ever joined.

Nutrition: Not sure. I've definitely had some high calorie days and some lower ones. Worst of all, I haven't been able to spread my calories out over 6 meals. For this trip (5 days), I at least have my glutamine, Xtend, Clif Builder bars and gemma powder.

Chest

Flat Bench Press with DB
20 x 15
25 x 12
35 x 10
40 x 6

You rock DV!
I wish I was as strong as you! In time, hopefully soon. :)
Usually I'm the only woman I see at the gym lifting weights.
