Nadilein's Training Journal for January 2012

#1 Postby Nadilein » Fri Dec 30, 2011 5:00 pm

Hello Everyone!

I have been a vegetarian for the past 3 years and just became a vegan two months ago. I am really happy with the switch and love my new lifestyle choice!

In order to achieve my goals for 2012, I thought it would be fun to join all of you for this fun challenge!

Current weight: 138lbs
Height: 5'11
Fitness Goals:
1. Gain more muscle and strength in my upper body
2. Obtain an overall 'fitness model' physique

Let the fun begin!
