Hi guys,

I am going to start a journal and do my best to keep it going! I want to do a figure competition in March of 2012 and from now until then I need help! I know how to eat the standard bodybuilding meat eating diet, but I'm pretty clueless when it comes to vegan pre-contest diet training. I hope to post my exercise and diet with you all here and get some critiquing advice from all of you!

I started back at the gym after a 2 month break on Saturday. this is what I did (going from memory, as I forgot to write it down during my training)

12.5lb dumbell in each hand - stationary front step lunges (12) split lunges (10) stationary step back lunges (6) --- did these back to back as one set. Did 4 sets of this.

smith machine squats (only lifted 50lbs since I've been away from the gym for so long.) 4 sets of 12...

SUPER SET W/ stiff legged deadlifts with bar plus 20lbs 4 sets of 12

isolated leg extensions 30lbs each leg until it burned, then dropped down to 10lbs to make sure I was finishing a full set of 10-12 reps. Did 3 sets of these

lying hamstring curl 40lbs 3 sets of 12,10,10

glute kickback machine 40lbs 3 sets of 12 on each side of the bum

inner things machine 80lbs 3 sets of 10-12

outter thigh/glutes machine 70lbs 3 sets of 10-12

35 min cardio @ 3.4 @ 4.o incline

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
meal 1 - shake consisting of 28grams of hemp protein, 2 cups water, 1 banana, 1 tablespoon stevia powder, about 10g of almond butter, ice

meal 2 - shake consisting of 28 grams of hemp protein, 1 cup water 1 cup plain flavored almond milk, 1 tablespoon stevia, 10g pb, 1/2 banana
1/2 cup oats

meal 3 - went a little crazy on some flax crackers from costco and flavored hummus

meal 4 - big green salad

meal 5 - that same shake again as earlier

I know I need to figure out my protein, fats and carbs but how do you do that without it being this tedious job of looking everything up? I need help putting together my diet!!

These are current pictures of me now. I have put on weight in the last two months and I want it gone! I haven't been doing much though so I'm back but I have always eaten the standard meat eating diet which I know how to do. A vegan diet for lean muscle mass, I need HELP!

THANKS GUYS!!

Carre

Nice going on the 40lb bicep curls...

As far as the number of meals... It really comes down to planning ahead of time. (something I really have to work at) But it pays off big time. When I'm off to work, I use one those larger coolers with the single handle on top. My mid day meals have to add up to around 1200 calories/100 grams protein. (body builder workouts) The last 1000 calories and 125 grams protein I get at breakfast and meals/shakes at home after work.
You already have a food journal going so big plus there.

If you have not yet got Robert Cheeke's book, I would recomend it 1000%.
Really helped me plan/stratagize meals/workout's etc...

Ok, an update from memory:

Tuesday ~

Back day (just had augmentation done so can't do chest and found that I need to keep things a bit 'chill' on certain back exercises still)

One are dumbbell rows 20lbs 4 sets of 12

high cable straight arm pull down 40lbs 3 sets of 12-10

seated cable row 45lbs 3 sets of 12-10

seated high cable pull down 52.5lbs 3 sets of 12

reverse pec dec 10lbs 4 sets of 12-10

back extensions w/ 10lb plate held 4 sets of 10

35 min cardio @ 5 incline speed 3.7

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

didn't get in enough food today.

Did like two shakes and a quinoua, mixed beans, peas, homemade tomato sauce mixture

-----------------------------

Wednesday =

Off from gym

Did HIIT on home treadmill for 30 minutes

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

still didn't get in enough food today

meal 1 - protein shake

meal 2 - quinoa, mixed beans, peas, tomato sauce mixture

meal 3- protein shake

nibbled on some crusted tofu I made for the family in between meal 2 and 3

I just ordered Robert Cheeke's book so I'm hoping that will help me get some food ideas so that I'm better prepared and I can get back to eating 6 small meals a day.

C'ya peeps!

No action in the gym since Wednesday, too sore! I have been keeping up with the 35 min incline cardio @ 3.5 the past couple of days. Today is Saturday and, although still a bit sore in the calves and hammies, I plan to get to the local track for some bleacher sprints and abs. Something, as opposed to nothing right?!

I did HIIT and that left me sore in the calves from Wednesday (I think that's when I did those) so I've been taking it easy. I did just resume working out after a 2 month break so I have to remind myself to ease back into things.

I am still hoping for some diet suggestions from someone, anyone..!

I ordered Robert Cheeke's book, hope that helps some

I know how to workout, just need to fuel myself right.

Until next time..
Carre.

Can anyone tell me why when I'm typing, it seems if it's somewhat lengthy, I can no longer see what I'm typing..like the screen won't go down that far as I type and I start to not be able to see what I'm typing, yet it allows me to keep typing and to see what I've typed I need to use my scroll bar to move down the page to viiew it but the second I start to type again, it kind of flickers while I type and doesn't let me see what I've typed ...

does that make ANY SENSe? It's sooooo annoying.
:x

What web browser are you using? What is the resolution on your monitor? Both of those could have an effect.
