It was from a cafe and I think the tomatoes and mushrooms were cooked in a pan and the asparagus and spinach were steamed.

So where was the scrambled Tofu?

You'll need to practice eating big before you go to the USA!
Have you ever loved someone so much you didn't care what happened to yourself?
You Just had to be with them.
If they look at you, your heart stops.
If you feel their breath on your skin, you just ache.
Have you ever craved someone so much you didn't exist anymore?

You know I've never tried scrambled tofu.. maybe I will soon! Not long after I got home I made a big bowl of lentils and spinach if that makes up for anything :wink: I was still full from breakfast but felt the need to eat again haha..

I've been eating bigger than usual this week.. I've been keeping myself full all day and eating the same amounts on rest days as I would on workout days.. which is a LOT.. for me anyway. :)

Last time I went, which was in April, I wasn't really working out.. just a few pushups here and there.. I joined the gym when I arrived home and this time I'll be sticking to my routine as best as I can.. The gym is in walking distance from my girlfriend's house so I don't have any excuse!

Bench Press
2 x 6 x 40 kg
3 x 5 x 60 kg
Last time 62.5 was a big of a struggle..failed on last reps of second and third sets, so I decided to drop the weight a little. 60 was pretty easy though. I probably started with too much weight a couple of weeks ago.

DB rows
3 x 5 x 44 kg

Dips
3 x 12

Pull-ups
1 x 6
1 x 6
1 x 5

Full squat
2 x 5 x 60 kg
3 x 5 x 80 kg

Felt good today.. I don't know what happened a few sessions ago but my legs felt great today so I'm happy. Going really deep with squats and steadily upping the weight.. I hope to be doing 90 - 100 kg full squats fairly soon!

Strict OH press
2 x 5 x 30 kg
3 x 5 x 45 kg

Powerclean
5 x 3 x 50 kg

5 reps front squat after each clean on the last set of 3

DB clean & press
3 x 5 x 22 kg

It was hot today. A swim would be nice but I might have to have one tomorrow because it will be my last day of warm weather for a while. USA on Wednesday!

Just had a nice workout without pushing myself too hard.. didn't really want to risk injury before a long flight tomorrow!

Deadlift
2 x 5 x 60 kg
3 x 5 x 90 kg

Felt so much better than last time

Clean (from knees)
5 x 3 x 40 kg

Cleans two days in a row is pretty tiring..

Barbell shrugs
3 x 5 x 90 kg

Pinch gripping
10 kg & 5 kg plates, passing around my body 10 times each way..

I'm flying to the U.S.A tomorrow. I probably won't be posting very often, but I'll be training as usual! :) See ya.

I've been in San Francisco and LA for the last week, hanging out with my girlfriend and visiting her family, which has been really great! Probably not eating as much as usual and I've only managed one workout in the last week which was chest and upper back.. I figure a week off won't hurt too much. We went to Millennium in SF, which was amazing. It was great to be able to go to a really nice gourmet vegan restaurant for a change.

I'm staying at my girlfriend's house now and I'll be able to use the home gym for a while and I can do some cooking which will be great.

I have fallen in love with clif bars, builder bars, larabars and organic food bars. I like the clif bars the most and I've been stocking up on those and keeping them in my bag to snack on as I travel. :)

How good are Clif Bars!
I love those things...
Don't worry you can order them from Vegan Essentials (Last time I ordered 100!)
You use to be able to get them in Australia, but Nestle put a stop to that :evil:
Have you ever loved someone so much you didn't care what happened to yourself?

You Just had to be with them.
