Thank you so much. I needed to hear something nice today. :)

I was vegan when I was heavier, but a junk food vegan. I didn't grow up eating fruits and vegetables so it took me a long time to figure out how to incorporate them into my diet. so when I first went vegan, I was all about the desserts. :?

I have been keeping a food log for the past few weeks that is pretty thorough regarding what my diet is like now. :) http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/rob/ph ... php?t=8735

That's great progress! I won't post any pics as i don't know how.LOL! But if someone can teach me how to post pics of myself i'll post some before and afters maybe in a few months.One of the trainers at the gym made a comment on me getting bigger but I haven't gained any wieght ever sense I turned vegan but I have gotten stronger so hopefully if he's telling the truth I'm gaining muscle

Hey! I know this an old thread, but what an amazing transformation! Congratulations!!!!! At first glance, I thought it was a picture of you next to your personal trainer. Then I noticed the "personal trainer" was also you. Wow! Very cool.

I haven't been on here in a while so I'm just seeing some of the newer comments now. Thanks everyone. :)

Thanks! I'm trying to reverse age myself. :D

Not much change physically for me in the past six months. I'm mostly trying to maintain my achievements. I have some plans for my arms, abs and legs though.

Diet plan?

#26 Postby laila827 » Tue May 06, 2008 12:10 am

This is really inspiring!!

I know you posted it before, but can you repost your diet plan/fitness routine?

I get so confused about what to eat in the morning before and after exercise.. you seem to have gotten it right..

Thanks for posting your pics!

Laila, I'm fairly unregimented. I try to run at least 40 km a week. I'm happiest when I'm above 50. That usually takes the form of a weekend long run (15km+) and a few shorter runs throughout the week. I spend 25 minutes a day stretching, to keep me healthy for the running. I do an upper body and lower body strengthening routine 2-3 times a week each. I just recently started on the arms again in the past week. Upper uses weights, lower is just body weight at the moment. I don't like to push my legs too much because then they are too sore to run. :) I used to do yoga regularly, but not as much now. I keep saying I want to get back in to it, but time is eluding me.

As for diet, I go against the usual recommendations for the morning. I eat a bowl of granola and rice dream, and I usually have decaf coffee or tea. It's actually a pretty terrible way to start the day nutrition-wise, but I have eaten cereal for breakfast as long as I remember and just can't stomach fruit or anything else. As for after, the first thing I'll usually eat is a Clif bar or my green smoothie. I did keep a food blog for a while, but I stopped updating it because I didn't feel like it, and it wasn't generating any interest anyway. viewtopic.php?t=8735

Here are a couple pics taken this morning. I"ve been maintaining more than anything, as well as coming back from a minor injury, but I think I've made a bit of progress in some areas.

You have your own gym equipment at home?

Yes, I'm that lazy! I hate the idea of having to actually go to a gym.

We used to have an elliptical but we sold it to my step sister when her gym closed. I hadn't used it in a year anyway.
