It's been a while since I've posted ...
I went strict vegan/whole foods in July 07 ... best thing I ever did!
I then transitioned to a full 6 day a week ashtanga practice in August 07 ... I lost about 15 pounds of muscle and body fat ... only doing yoga...
But, in the last few months ... I've noticed my metabolism has really slowed down without the muscle and even though I'm smaller ... I'm not as solid ... I look "softer ..." I also have suffered three major injuries ... sciatica (which is healed thanks to a talented chiropractor), both shoulders impinged (right is still limited with strength and ROM), and I tore my left meniscus (which will be diagnosed with an MRI in the next couple weeks - treatment is ???)
So...this morning ... I went to the gym.
I plan on going three days a week - T, TH, Sat - full body, light weight, high reps to get back into it and ashtanga M,W, F with Sunday off.
I'm also going to reevaluate my nutrition ... I think portions have gotten a bit out of control since the holidays!!

Best of luck with your program!

Hey, you're in burbank? I'll be there on Thursday. I fly into Burbank.

I'll be at the LA Fit expo. www.lafitexpo.com Check it out and come by or get in touch. I won't be "working" at a booth. Brendan Brazier and I will just be walking around, hanging out :)

All the best.

You are already super strong! The bench and the curls are particularly impressive. Keep at it!
