I'd like to join the cheering squad! You're doing a great job. Before you know it, 95%/100% will not even be a thought and you'll look back and laugh. You have vegan blood in you, go for it!
Thanks Lean and Green, at this stage I need all the cheers I can get to get over the hump.
Today was awesome! Finally went to the gym after a too long of a break! Don't want to lose too much more of my gains when I worked out a lot a couple months ago.
Seated Leg Curls 40lb x 12, 45lb x 12, 45lb x 12
Walking Lunges 12lbs in each hand, 3 sets of 16 steps (really focused on pulling myself up with the forward leg, could have done more steps)
Step Forward Lunges 12lbs each hand, 3 sets times 24
Front Raises 10lbs x 12 x 2, 12lbs x 4, 10lbs x 8 (next time try more 12lbs)
Bent Arm Raises DB 10lbs x 12 x 3 (difficult near the end)
Seated Rear Delts 5lbs x 12 x 2, 8lbs x 6, 5lbs x 6 (do more 8lbs)
Military Presses 10lbs x 12, 8lbs x 12, 10lbs x 12 (start at 10lbs next time)
Crunches on ball, not sure if I got my form right, 44, 17, 16
So excited! then 35minutes on elliptical easy.
Sipping a huge cocoa strawberry banana smoothie with a protein mix of hemp, soy, rice and pea with almond milk. A nice reward! The secret for me I think is not to let myself sleep in! I get soooo lazy when I sleep in past 10am. From now on bed by midnight and up at 8am.
Other goals: Build more hamstrings, and calves cause I have none
