Clif bars are amazing! I'll probably stock up and bring some home with me.

I made some pumpkin cookies from the fat free vegan blog, although these were the not-so-fat-free version..They are very nice. Here is the recipe - http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2008/10/pu ... okies.html

I've been working out but have been using machines in the basement here. Hopefully I can get out to a gym and get back to free weights soon.

I might do legs and shoulders tonight. I always have fun with those workouts.

I bought 10 clif bars, 5 builder bars and 7 larabars tonight.. should keep me going for a little while. Trader Joes is great! The clif bars were 99c each.

I haven't been keeping a food log but tonight I had a couple of big burritos with baked veggies, brown rice, black beans and salsa. They were fantastic. :)

I'm in Athens, OH right now. I love this town! I arrived to find a package from Robert, which was the vegan fitness DVD, some flyers and some sample vega products. They are so good! I've finished them already and watched the dvd last night. I enjoyed the section on shopping for food and other products and the vegan potluck the most. Thanks again Robert! :) I would like to take some vega home with me or order some when I'm home, but I'm not sure what the rules are with hemp in food in Australia.

There is a great selection of vegan food in cafes and restaurants and there is a great natural food store right around the corner from where I'm staying. http://farmacynaturalfoods.com/ - I'm about to go and buy a few things and I'll head over to the university gym later today. :) Happy times.

While I am enjoying my time over here so much, I am also excited to go home to see family and get started on some projects I've been planning for a while. I want to build and buy some weight lifting equipment for my garage. What I'd like is a simple set-up with a home made lifting platform, olympic barbell, plates and maybe a bench. I'd also like to start growing some herbs and veggies in my yard. I'll have quite a lot of free time during February, so hopefully I can get started.

I've had Robert send me some Vega stuff through the post and I didn't have any dramas.
Still, it would be best to put a stack in your suit case (Along with Clif Bars of course) as postage gets a little
excessive at $20 per pound.

I worked out at the Ohio University Ping Centre gym today. It's a pretty amazing facility.

Front Squat
1 x 10 x 45
2 x 5 x 115
3 x 5 x 135

I hadn't done these for about 5 weeks, so I'm easing back into it.

Barbell Bench Press
1 x 10 x 45
2 x 5 x 115
3 x 5 x 135

Feeling stronger and 135 seemed easy. Maybe the break helped. Well.. it wasn't really a break since I was using machines for bench press and pressing 80 - 90 kg. That felt like cheating :lol:

Dumbbell Row
3 x 5 x 100

Dips
1 x 12
1 x 10
1 x 10

Pushups - for the 1,000,000 challenge! :)
5 x 20

I'm flying home tomorrow. Mixed feelings :? Sad about leaving my love but happy to see family and go back to summer. It won't be too long until we're back together. I've stocked up on clif bars and builder bars and might even go and buy some more tonight to take in my carry on luggage.

Here's the pizza I ate tonight -

I'm back home in the land down under. It is so HOT! Wow.. Just yesterday I was playing around in the snow in cold Ohio. I do love summer and can't wait to get into the surf.

I'm doing my best to stay awake until about 9 or 10 tonight and then I'll just crash and hopefully wake up at a normal time, around 6 - 7 am and I won't be too jet lagged.

I just weighed myself.. 83.5 kg / 184 lb ! How did that happen? :)

I'm going to try creatine. We'll see how that goes. Just have to remember to drink a lot of water. It will be interesting to see how it affects my strength and endurance.

I'm aiming to weigh 200 lb / 90.7 kg and stay lean this year. I think it's definitely doable. Only about 15.4 lb / 7 kg to go. :D

I've got some creatine you can have, if you want it?
It's open, but it doesn't go off or anything.
I'm not going to use it.
