So I've been a Vegan now for about 3 years and I love it. I am personal trainer, and have been a competitive bodybuilder and a power lifter. Currently, I am a rabbinical student in Philly and I eat a mostly raw diet, keeping with the idea of 80/10/10. I liked to eat and being a vegan works well for me as long as I stay away from processed food and eat a whole food plant based diet. I've lost around 57 pounds since becoming a vegan, pounds I wanted to lose and I am still able to put on muscle.

After about a month of traveling I came home and I am now about 15 pounds heavier, I'm not really worried about getting the weight off but I thought It might be good to keep an online journal here.

So stay tuned. Today is a rest day so there will not be any training unless you all want me to write about my finals and all of the essays that I have to write. :D

Ha that's funny. I wish I could remember who's journal I just read that was talking about training on off days with mental training. He had a really compelling story.
PS - loving to eat and eating vegan foods is one of the best things about the lifestyle. I get caught up in food that comes out of a box in the frozen section sometimes though I won't lie.

So here is my first exercise entry into my new journal. Today I did Shoulders and Biceps, which is day 3 of a 4 day split.

I warmed up with seated curls that go right into a shoulder press. Not even sure if this exercise has a name but it was good to get my muscles going. I woke this morning to 17 degree Philly weather :shock:
15lbs x 15
20lbs x 10
25lbs x 10

Next up we have Hammer strength shoulder press supersetted with barbell curls

Hammer strength rear press
25lbs on each side x 10
45lbs each side x 10
50lbs each side x 10
55 lbs each side x 8

Barbell curl
bar no weight probably 40lbs x 10
50lbs x 12
60lbs x 10
70lbs x 10

Barbell shoulder presses supersetted with incline curls

Shoulder press
Bar about 40lbs
50lbs x 10

Incline curl
15lbs x 12
20lbs x 10
25lbs x 10

Upright rows, preacher curl, and side raises this is one giant set

Upright rows
40lbs x 10
50lbs x 10
60lbs x 10
70lbs x 10

Preacher curl. I have no idea how much a preacher curl bar weighs so I will just tell you how much weight was on the bar
20lbs x 10
30lbs x 10
40lbs x 10
50lbs x 8

Side raises
15lbs x 10 for 3 sets

Barbell shrugs with hammer curls these are not alternating curls

Barbell shrugs
130lbs x 15
150lbs x 15
170lbs x 10
180lbs x 8

Hammer curls
15lbs x 10
20lbs x 10

Last exercise was cable rope curls
4 sets of 10

Preworkout meal was one honeydew melon and post workout was about 4 bananas.

Anyway that's all for now.
Sandra

Thanks Karen.
Today was the coldest day of winter, so far. Asking for it not to get colder is probably asking for too much :D

Cool, I've only been on the east coast for like 4 months and I have only been to Philly 1 day and that was before I moved out here. When I go again I will definitely get atcha for restaurant recommendations.
