I have been MIA for a while. Had a hectic couple of months that have sent me off my journey to achieving my goals, my nanna passed away, I graduated uni, got a job, got engaged, bought a house (with partner), renovated said house and am moving back into said house.

I have lost my way with exercise and my eating has turned to shit (potato chips and too much booze).

I'm desperate to get back into this and really get to my goals. Any motivational tips/ass kicking comments would be much appreciated :S

Keep up the good work, your doing it for the same reason as me 'sticking it the veg haters'. It feels good to see peoples faces when you tell them you're a veggie :)

Best of luck

Been busy working my butt off and eating super clean. Abs are looking good, but still am not happy with my legs. I want them leaner and more muscular.. They seem just large at the moment. Any tips for improving them?

I currently do:
Dead lifts
Hamstring curls
Quad lifts(? I don't know what they're called, the opposite to hamstring curls)
Hack squats
Lunges
Calf raises

Do about 3 set of 8-10 reps on all the above, with a challenging weight

hey, you got some awesome abs!

i personally would drop the weight a little and up the reps for your legs, 15 to 20 reps. help bring out some details

Your face is super red in those pics! Embarrassed? You shouldn't be you are already quite fit and I'm sure if you keep it up the way it sounds like you have been you have no problem meeting even your own standards of what you would like your body to look like.

EXCELLENT progress! Looks like the hard work is paying off. Can I ask what your diet looks like?

Diet ok:

Brekky:
Large glass of water with glutamine on rising
Cup of black tea with soy milk
Usually tofu, veggie sausages or tempeh with veggies (mushrooms, tomato, kale or spinach)
Green tea

Morning tea:
Salad with some form of veggie protein (burger, patty, tofu, beans or something) or a salad wrap
Green tea

Lunch:
Raw nuts
Hummus and crackers
Apple

Afternoon tea:
Black Tea
Rice crackers with avocado

Dinner:
Currently living at home so whatever is going, usually lots of veggies and some form of protein

I'm starting to lose my appetite, which is good and bad. I used to be able to out eat all my family members, but since I've lost weight and am more careful about my food choices my stomach had shrunk a lot and it's often hard to eat enough. I try to snack every 2 hours even if its a small handful of almonds.

Last time I checked it was 19.8%. But I don't know how accurate that was because it was just on a set of scales... Just over a year ago it was 27%.

You already looked great to begin with, but I'm impressed with the super progress! I love the muscle that's shaping up on you!
