It has been awhile since I posted. Lets see. I am in apartment on campus, and classes have already begun. I have walked to the gym (35 minutes as my warm-up and as my cool-down on the way back). The gym is smaller, and I miss my Hammer Strength Chest Presses and a Lying Leg curl machine, but they have a Smith Machine, all the Lifetime fitness machine (except the shoulder press) and weird incline benches. An interesting Leg Press too, but I have not tried that out yet (did Power Squats on the Smith Press this week instead). There is hardly any people there, so I usually have the freedom to do whatever I want without waiting for a weight, bench, or machine.
With all this walking to class, and walking to the gym, I seem to be losing my bodyfat finally - that and the poor college student diet. Actually I am pretty well off (I still have my husband's credit card, though he declined to sell everything and move here with me - till I succeed at getting a phD and a job somewhere where it is warmer than here (Indiana) or Michigan), but I opted not to take the car (did not want to hassle with parking, fees, and my husband having to buy another car for himself), but I have to walk to the grocery store. A market is over by the gym, and takes another 10 minutes from the gym to get there, so a total of 45 minutes to get back to campus and my apt. Yesterday I had to carry a toilet paper package of 12 in my arms (because all the food was in my back pack). Glad that I am so old that vanity of carrying toilet paper on busy city streets and across campus doesn't bother me. . it actually makes me giggle!
So I will have new posts about working out as a VeganBeast, going to school (student), and trying to get ripped with my diet as a vegan.
Tonight's dinner will be 1/2 bag left of beansprouts, sugar snap pea pods, carrots, tofu, and brown sweet rice. Just had a protein shake made with warm water, and I ran out of oatmeal, but I did have Cascadian Farm Organic Granola on the counter, so I ate one cup of that with a glass of water (need the extra sugar calories since I just got done working out and walked all the way back in the cold!). Now it is time for a nap, and then I get to wake up and study!
