Tattoo's new journal

#1 Postby tattoo514 » Wed Dec 01, 2010 8:48 am

So, I'm 42 yr old, female, vegan X 7 yrs. I've lost 30 pounds over the last year and a half. Now, the big plateau. I really want to get the scale going down again. I'm 5'3, 150 pounds (not for long). I'm really pretty strong and have been training with weights for years. I want to maintain strength and lose this extra weight. I usually do circuit-type workouts with no rest between sets(with varying weights/reps to keep things fresh) 3-4 times per week. I do cardio (usually HIT)3-4 times per week. Obviously sometimes I workout twice in a day.

11/29-10 minute cardio warm up

DB incline bench 35# X 12,8 then 25# X 10
Db OHP 20# X 8,8,6
Tricep pull downs 60# X 12,12,10

Lat pulls 60# X 18, 15, 10 (need more weight)
EZ bar bi curls 20# X 12,12,10

3 sets of 30 squats (no weight) alternating with curlups X 20 and planks

finish with 15 minutes on the stairmaster

Food-Oatmeal/1/2 banana/ 1/2 cup almond milk
Homemade veggie stew
green salad/balsamic
sammy-sprouted barley bread /vegenaise/tomato/lettuce
seitan tacos
Roughly 1200 cals

Wow! I'm a slacker! I haven't been here in a long time! Life has been crazy!
Anyway, I've lost 3 pounds since here last, but I'm stuck again. I'm still getting my workouts in. Trying to get at least 5 hours/week doing mostly HIIT cardio and circuit training. I think I just need to watch the calories. This time of year I fell like I'm always drinking. Hey, I love a good beer, what can I say?!

So, food for last couple of days-
12/20-coffee with silk nog (another temptation this time of year)
sprouted bread veggie sammy
tofu scramble (tofu, broccoli, spinach, onion, peppers, carrots, yams)
bits of "meatloaf" on greens for an interesting salad
seitan tacos
uno cerveza

wrap on ww tortilla ("meatloaf" greens, tomato)
airpopped popcorn
15 almonds
another sammy (time to go food shopping)

Tattoo today! Getting some work done on my new sleeve in Denver. Anytime I go down there I have to go to the Watercourse to eat! Awesome veg restaurant! If you're ever in the Denver area, I highly recommend it!

Oh, this sounds awesome! You are a fighter and sticking with it, right on 8) 8)

Progress can come and go in waves but you know how it goes, stick with it and you'll persevere. I like your high energy. Very motivating.

Looking forward to your next update ;)
