I am participating in a contest called "Create an Inspiration" organized by Fierce Forward. One has to submit a picture that pretty much represents your "fitness you" and write a message that will inspire others to take up a healthier lifestyle. To vote for me, you just need to like my picture.

I'm not much into popularity contests, and gave some serious thoughts to even entering this one, it is not my usual move, but one of my goals this 2012 is to move out of my confort zone and "do stuff" that makes me "antsy" to gain confidence. The weight came off, but confidence it's taking its time to surface.

Anyway, I need my #veganfamily to support me on this one. To win means a lot for I think I have a powerful message to spread.

To support me and back me up on this one, just go to the link below and like my picture. If you wish to leave an encouraging comment, feel free to do so. You may also support me by sharing the picture on your wall and encouraging your friends to like it as well. Thank you all for your time and support. Being part of this community has positively impacted my life in MANY ways. I want to emulate Robert Cheeke by providing a positive example others can relate to: a real person losing weight and getting fit in a healthy way. Again, thank you for supporting my cause!

Sunday was rest day for me. But I couldn't resist the temptation and did the "Pull Day" routine from Jamie Eason's LiveFit trainer. It goes as follows:

Bent over dumbbell back row
Straight arm DB pullover (used a chair as bench)
Seated DB curl
Preacher Curl (with a beach ball)
Wide stance bodyweight squat (static holds) 10 reps/30secs hold
Hip extensions with DB (on the knees)
Single leg deadlift with DB
Regular planks (3 reps/60secs holds, 1 rep to failure)
Side planks (3 reps/60secs hold on each side)

Today I performed de "Push Day)
Standing one arm (hand facing in) shoulder press
Front/side lateral raise
Rear delt raise
Chest press
Wide pushups
Wall sit 10 reps/30secs hold
Static hold lunges 10 reps/30secs hold
Single leg squat (static hold) 10 reps/30sec hold
Standing calf raises

If it isn't otherwise specified, all exercises where 3 sets of 12 reps

I'm BACK!!!

Today I worked legs. Since I've been having all kinds of issues with my knees, I decided to restructure my whole leg workout and reduce the weight, (sometimes using no weight at all) and increasing the number of reps. I will continue training legs twice a week. Here's what I did today:

Lying leg curl 1/35-20lbs 3/25-30lbs
Leg extension 1/35-20lbs 3/25-30lbs
Lying leg press 4/25-30lbs
Squat machine 4/15 empty
Standing calf raise 4/25 15lbs
Seated calf raise 4/25 50lbs

Today I trained arms and abs. Here's my workout:
Narrow pushups 4/15
Seated tricep press 4/8-25lbs

Supersets
Cable one arm tricep extension 3/8-20lbs
One arm reverse grip tricep pushdown 3/8-20lbs

Skullcrusher 3/8-5lbs discs EZ bar
Close grip bb bench press 3/8-15 lbs discs EZ. Bar

Regular sets
Incline alternate bicep curl 4/8-15lbs
BB curl 21's (2 sets)-EZ bar, 5lbs discs
Stability ball crunch 3/25
Jacknife sit ups with ball 3/15 (holding ball overhead) 3/15
Stability ball reverse crunches (ball between feet) 3/15

I feel I have lost strength. I'm not eating well (have lost my appetite) and those days in which I was feeling under the weather really took their toll. But I know I can gain the lost ground back. I'm no quitter! If I was, I wouldn't be where I am todaay, which reminds me: my fitness success story was published by activeLife Guide magazine. Those who wish can read about it in the link below, it's on page 20
