Hey Haylee! Great job!

I know it's frustrating to find out how many food items have animal products in them. BUT... Just keep doing the best you can, striving for improvement each day, and don't beat yourself up over "mistakes" because then you'll likely just get discouraged and may give up. It's okay, just keep learning! If you need any help at all, feel free to reach out to me. I've been vegan for a couple years now and have learned a lot along the way!

Keep up the great work!

All the best,
Karen

Thanks Andrea!! Today was not such a good day for me lol. I had a ton of stuff to do all morning/afternoon, then dinner at my mother/grandmothers house....and then remembered that the gym closes at 6 on sundays. I was looking forward to going very much! Tomorrow is my bf and I 7 year anniversary, we are going to start it off by going early :D

I find that I have a hard time doing some exercises, mostly shoulders, because my right shoulder is lower than the left, and my elbows hyper-extend. Does anyone else have this problem?

Awesome job!! You are really inspiring, and we're kind of coming from the same place. I've lost 69 pounds since going completely vegan (and a total of 114 down so far from my top weight, ugh) and being vegan is sooooo worth it. Definitely a little bit of a learning curve when I first started, but you will get it all figured out. Luckily there's so much more in terms of resources online nowadays...keep up the awesome work, I am cheering you on from Las Vegas. :D

Congrats hellbent!! That is such a success!!! Thanks for the reply pphelps, I was seeing one for about a two months, and he would just allign me, and put a thing in my shoe so that I stand higher on the right side..but I didnt see even a slight bit of improvement, so I stopped going. Have you seen an improvement from yours? I might attempt to go again.

Did he tell you if your hip is lower on that side as well? He said mine is

I have only been once so can’t really say if it had improved or not yet got another appointment on Saturday so will see what he says.

He said my left hip is not aligned with the right side, I always get a sore hip on the left side from running sometimes I wake up in the night and it’s just aching, I have not been running on it for about 10days I have been doing cardio on spin bike and elliptical and it has not felt as bad, (really missing running though!!)

I Have stopped doing squats with barbell (Missing them too) as that seems to aggravate my hip.

I’m trying to do single limb movement’s i.e leg extension one leg at a time and shoulder laterals one arm at a time as he said they were weak so trying to build up strength in them.

Plus I find my legs lack any real development and I’m wondering if the mis-alignment of my hips is a factor?

I would love to hear what your chiro has to say next time! I am going to be making an appointment with another one, and will be sure to tell you what he says as well. I also read that even though this condition isnt scoliosis, that it benefits to do exercises and stretches that is for scoliosis. That might be something to look into as well. I'm sorry to hear about your hip pain :( I get pain in my hips from fast walking/running as well, and my shoulders ache often too.

Today felt like a great work out! I usually do legs by themselves, but I included them in today since I couldnt get to the gym yesterday.

Cable Low Row- 45 lbs, 4x36
Lat pull down -55lbs, 4x36
Deltoid Fly Machine-40lbs, 4x36

Sitting angle DB Curls
-15lbs each arm, 4x30
Standing DB Hammer Curls-15 each arm, 4x20

V squat machine- 50lbs, 4x36
Seated Leg Curl Machine- 40lbs, 4x36
Seated Calf Raises, 45lbs, 2x50

30 minutes intervals on treadmill 3.0,3.5,4.0 mph
