Hi, I'm a 46 year old from the North of England who's been infrequent on/off weight training for years with no real gains to speak of. I was vegetarian for years but kept lapsing back to fish eating and/or meat eating..... But more recently committed to a total vegan diet. It's day 75 today for me of vegan diet & that bit's going well. My wife's been awesomely supportive, and I know I'd really struggle to get the right food in my body without her help.

Not been getting to the gym enough recently, but I made it back today!
Did back, lats, & triceps, with some cardio to finish.
Just got home & demolished a protein smoothie: Coconut milk, hemp protein, mango, raspberries, banana. Delicious...
(above was cut & pasted from intro board)

I thought the blog/journal section might be a better place here to post after I make it to the gym.
Need to build some momentum...

Consistency and progression with compound movements using free weights and weighted calisthenics.

Cardio today on rowing machine then cross trainer as warm up, then:
Chest press inclines 4 sets, then chest press 4 sets,
Then triceps extensions 4 sets, then overheads 4 sets, then 3 sets triceps dips, then 1 set chest crossovers & I was done.
I wanted out.
I demolished a bag of spinach. Cos I'm strongs to da finnach.

& tonight celebrated my 9th wedding anniversary for a meal in a nearby restaurant with my wife & daughter. Not a vegan restaurant, but the staff were really great & I had a very garlicky bruschetta then a spicy tomato egg free pasta, then a black coffee while they had dessert. No probs.
Much preferring vegan restaurants though, for the choice & ethics. Last weekend i was in Edinburgh on a course & ate at a really awesome vegan restaurant where I had vegan haggis. Delish
