Gaia trainer is an awesome guy said he will give me my macro numbers and leave the diet up to me but wants to know what I will be eating lol. He has a shop that I will go to that is all free weight/body weight which I LOVE cause I really hate a lot of the machines cause I tend to get lazy and lose form. He wants me to do a 3 day split of chest/shoulders/tris, legs, back/biceps 2 of which I will work with him and I think I will alternate between chest and back days with him. I will keep going to my gym and he likes the idea of me keeping boot camp in the mix as a way to do my cardio. Yeah as for the oreos..... my options were chocolate covered graham crackers, angel food cake, potato chips, oreos, ice cream or honey nut cheerios.... the fruit was old and yucky looking lol. Yeah all I could handle was 2 oreos. They really didn't even taste good to me

Are honey nut Cheerios vegan?

Your trainer sounds pretty cool, at least from your perspective - and that is all that counts! Make sure you give him pointers on how to motivate you to push pass plateaus and reach for new goals. And you can teach him all about being a vegan athlete since he wants to know what you are eating!

Soooo I decided to give my tummy a bit of a break from tofu this weekend and will be making white bean and roasted mushroom soup, balsamic roasted mushrooms and brussels sprouts, and coconut-lemon meltaways (raw cookies). I plan on sharing the cookies lol! Today is just going to be cardio since I am going to start with the trainer tomorrow so boot camp in 90 mins! I might go up early and get a lil step mill in just to get my juices flowing to my sore lower body. By the time I get home I will be to pooped to journal so night all!

So I was out running an errand and started craving a creamy blended coffee drink loaded with sugar and calories but opted for a passion green tea. Got back to work and fixed me a ice water with raw apple cider in it. They sure did hit the spot

Idea: Make this a salad instead, and take 1 scoop of protein powder from the bedtime's 2 scoops of protein powder (one should be good for the nighttime, as you have 2 scoops after your workout - which is when you need it the most).

I usually sautee that together into like a stir-fry. I am not a fan of raw onions :) I sometimes forget to take my bedtime shake and since I usually journal long before bed I add it in just in case I remember Each serving is only 56 calories and only has 11g protein. I would love to be able to afford a higher quality protein but that is why I double up....

In an effort to lower my calorie intake and keep my protein intake high I pulled out my Get Healthy, Go Vegan cookbook... So far I have found a couple recipes that are gluten free and don't use tofu in them. I am trying to cut back on my tofu intake from an entire block down to half a block would be nice lol. Found a baker at farmer's market willing to make a peach coconut mango crumble for me that is vegan and gluten free. I just need to talk her into cutting the sugar content from 3/4c down to maybe 1/4c. I really want to enjoy the flavors of the peach and mango melding together in blissful harmony :)

I am more concerned for the hunger pangs that might come from cutting your portions in half. I just wanted you to know that salad fixings: veggies actually, can be eaten in mass quantities and not raise your caloric intake that much! LOL! A head of lettuce doesn't do much for the tastebuds though, but it fills the stomach! Sort of . . . sugar pea pods and sweet red bell peppers and grape tomatoes are also good for munching on and filling up the tummy.
