He's making a good choice and a great thing for his life and others. It's great that you inspired him this.

Workout...spinning...I did not push myself at all today..I woke up late and my breakfast made me nauseous during cardio...I walked all around work today which probabaly burns alot of calories but does not do much for my muscle tone
what I ate...Breakfast...same as usual
Image
snack I ate a granola bar and one of these 0 calorie sparkling beverages
Image
Lunch ah vegan sushi with my favorite healthy fat avocado...this was wonderful...I ate half the fruit salad at lunch and the other half a few hours later
Image
Dinner...I was too lazy to cook so I made a vegan wrap with smart deli slices and one slice of vegan cheese and of course cherries!!! ( I spent 15 minutes picking out the perfect bag of cherries at publix)

I second what Robert said. Photos rock and so do you. Very glad you joined and immediately became an active member.

Yea core and balance work can be challenging; don't worry, you'll get it!

I woke up late again...I have been beat lately :(......anyway I did spin and sculpt today 45 minutes of spin then 30 minutes using bands to sculpt. I really don't like the bands but I have heard that your muscles cannot tell the difference....Is that true??

I think it must be the weather, because I've also been beat too. The bands don't like me, but I suffer through using them. I think they're good because the resistance is a bit different than using weights.
