Chest, back and arms today. 30 minutes on treadmill and 30 minutes on the elliptical. I will do more weights and squats when I get home from work. This weekend my brother-in-law is going to teach me squats with the barbell and other lifting exercises. So excited. I hate the weight machines..

Danced my arse off and did free weights at home before heading to the gym. Intervals on the treadmill for 3 miles. Same on the elliptical for a half hour. Arms, chest and back. Just went to Whole
Foods and got all the Vega samples and packets I could get my hands on. My wallet just got annihilated. Should have order the samples online.

Tried the Vega Sport this morning and I loved it!! Also sipped on the electrolyte hydrator during cardio and had the chocolate protein for breakfast. Best chocolate protein yet!! 30 minutes doing interval training on the treadmill and 30 on the elliptical. 50 reps Lat pull downs, 25 reps pec machine, 50 reps dip machine and 50 reps mid row. My shoulders are sore!! Merry Hempster hot muscle rub is my pal today. Maybe some free weights if I have the energy tonight. Can't wait to try Vega endurance gel when the weather is nice enough for a long run!!

So sore today. Coming down with a cold. Resting up for tomorrow. Going to try the Vega Pre-Workout in the a.m. Just had the Chocolate Whole Health Optimizer. Delicious. Vega really has the chocolate favors down. Now for lots of vitamin c. If still feeling under the weather tomorrow I will skip cardio and do alot of weights.

What a bummer. My head cold is even worse. I really thought that if I told myself I would feel ok to work out I would. Today will be spent eating lots of cleansing foods and drinking tons of water and resting so I can powerhouse the gym tomorrow!!

Still sick but just did 3 hours at the gym!! I thank Vega Pre-Workout Energizer. Holy Crap!! This stuff is amazing and the lemon-lime (as ugly as it is) is amazing tasting. Was bummed I am out of Vega Peotein Chocolate Powder but my other favorite is Rainbow Light Protein Energizer in vanilla or chocolate. I add a teaspoon of cacao powder to make it more chocolate-y. Going to order the Vanilla Chai Vega Protein tomorrow. So, did intervals on the treadmill (30 minutes) and elliptical (45 minutes) and did another 2 miles on the treadmill. Sister showed me some great stretches and my brother-in-law showed me some lower back work outs. Abs and legs today. Low weight and high reps. 2 mile walk. Stretching then done for the day!!
