Thank you so much RC! I'm loving getting to know Miguel! He's awesome!

Miguel! Loved your workout yesterday! PLANNING is where it's at my friend! I love that you planned your workout knowing you'd be tried today so you pushed yourself a little harder yesterday! That is simply fantastic! Makes me so happy!

Enjoy your day and we'll talk soon!

Amanda

Hi Miguel,
I keep meaning to post back a reply after your kind comments on my journal. You have really been improving, hows your pinched nerve issues, are you coping ok with it?

I find some light physio type exercises after training really helps me. Nothing strenuouse just very light stretches. Any way keep going and all the best mate.

Doug

I really didn't want to work out today because of the way my body felt, but if i want to run the 5K in april i know that i have to keep going.

Doug thanks for your kind words. It means a lot to me. My nerve pain has its ups and downs. when i am in pain i will take some aleve. since i have been losing weight the pain has been less which is what my doctor wanted anyway. I am hoping that this will be all over by the end of the year. i will look into the exercises you told me about if you recommend anything about what to do let me know sine this is still very new to me.

So today i found out that i am lactose intolerance. I was going to give up dairy slowly and fully give it up by my birthday. I guess now it is better to give it up and stay in good health then to go a few more day eating it. Now i have to find things that can replace the dairy. Hope it will not be to hard.

Great work, Miguel!

There are plenty of things you can have instead dairy, you won't even miss it. I personally don't use any kind of "milk" like rice milk, almond milk, soy milk, etc. I just don't really ever eat or drink anything that would incorporate them. I may have them a few times a year with cereal at someone's house or something like that. I'm a much bigger fan of fruits, vegetables, grains, greens, beans, lentils, nuts, etc.

But if you use milk to drink or for cereal or anything else, opt for Rice, Hemp, Almond, Oat, or some other non-dairy beverage.

Same with cheese. There are a bunch of vegan brands and they are at lots of stores all around your area from Sprouts to Whole Foods to plenty of other places.

You can also google search dairy alternatives and find great resources.

All the best!

-Robert

Hi Miguel,

I'm lactose intolerant as well- I haven't had dairy since long before I was a vegan just because it makes me sick! Like Robert said, there are so many alternatives that can help you transition away from dairy if you're eating a lot of it right now. Eventually you won't need as many subs for milk probably. When I buy any milk subs I usually make sure they are unsweetened and plain (so they don't have added sugar or flavoring). I also try to get organic versions and ones with the least amount of ingredients. Good luck and please email me if you have any questions or post here and I'll respond! :)

You're doing AMAZING with the work outs! I'm SO PROUD OF YOU! You inspire me!

I can't look tried at work because of all the things that are going on. it also nice to feels nice to take a few days off to have my body rest.

So didn't get to work out today. was standing a whole lot today and the last half hour was crazy at work with all the kids in there families in the room. the one thing i did do and that i am very proud of is that i walked from the gate all across the parking lot an cross a small street to my co-workers car with out using my cane. that was about a 2-3 min walk. when i got to her car i was very tried but happy. it has been about a year since i have done that same walk with out a cane. this shows me that i have come so far in the past year and i know i can only improve from here.
