TUES JAN 24

Spent the day walking, was still sore didn't do any weight lifting. Going to get ahold of some larger weights and start trying to build mass, I think.

meal 1: black bean and kale burrito
meal 2: carrots, almonds, and a peanut butter sandwich
meal 3: avacado spring rolls, though I botched them and it was more like a spring bowl. still tasted good.

THURS JAN 26

Today, I took my workout to the next level with an upper body dumbell session! For lack of larger weights, I gripped two weights per hand and tried to double what I'm used to. It works for now, poured out more sweat than I have all month! Someone noticed my muscles are beginning to look more defined today, too, which was nice.

meal 1: veggie/fruit smoothie
meal 2: black bean and sprout burrito
meal 3: bean/seed/veggie hot salad

SAT THE 28TH

Still wrecked but recuperating. I can at least lift my arms over my head today haha. Worked on my abs today, started with planks then did some crazy crunches and situps, stretching etc.

ate pretty much the same as yesterday, smoothie for breakfast, made some veggie nori rolls and did a stir fry for dinner with the left over brown rice and veggies, with almonds in the mix.

been so busy and haven't organized a post for the weekend yet. Did an upper body workout on Sunday, Saturday I did some cardio.

Been eating more or less the same things, maintaining a vegan diet. Ran out of B complex supplements so I'm using up some plain B12 before I get more. Thinking of getting some vitamin D as well to take with my multi as well.

May I ask why you're thinking of taking extra D? Too much can be toxic, although you might not have to worry about that for the doses you're probably thinking of getting but one can usually get enough from 15 mins in the sun a few times a week.

And if you don't mind me getting all health-nerdy on ya: at this time, cyanocobalamin isn't a form of B12 anyone wants to waste their money on. Iirc, human bodies don't tend to convert it into a usable form much, and even when it does, it doesn't always make its way into our cells to do its intended tasks. Rather, the preferred form is a vegan Methylcobalamin, like the ones from the company Country Life, Deva, or Freeda (etc.) for instance. The former will tell you if the American Vegetarian Association certifies it as vegan or not, by a tiny symbol on their label lol. And now I'm off to bed lol.

I was reading about all the health benefits of vitamin D and figured it couldn't hurt, haha.

After checking the label of the B-12 I have it is "Nature Made" brand and full of the supposedly useless one that starts with a C. Well shit.. they taste horrible anyway. I'll look for the Meth one next time I go shopping. Thanks a bunch for the health lesson lol :) , feel free to check my labels anytime!
