Ryofire's Journal

#1 Postby Ryofire » Sat Apr 18, 2009 11:10 pm

I want to start a journal to keep track of my progress. Make comments of how I'm doing and how I'm feeling about my training, diet, etc.

I weight train, practice Hung Gar, ride a bicycle, sometimes do a little parkour even, and whatever is fun enough and helps me stay in shape. I'm also big into walking especially around the city. I'm a natural city boy at heart. There's alot to see here in Boston too.

I have a journal on training.fitness.com. I think I'll keep my membership to that site as well so I can look at any of the threads I've posted there for feedback.

I did some cardio in the AM and had Hung Gar practice this afternoon.

Someone in my Hung Gar class was trying to tell me that men shouldn't eat alot of Soy because of the fact that the plant estrogen is in it. Yet this is a woman trying to tell me a man what to do with my body. Before anyone thinks I'm sexist let me say this. I don't care what study says what there's not enough evidence and not enough studies being done to prove that soy is really bad for men and even cause gynecomastia (or however you spell it). All of this is a bunch of macho bacho manly wanna be tough bullshit.

I know I really need to keep up with updating this Journal, but today was a Cardio in the AM and I managerd to get in some Parkour practice in town today. I am very careful when I practice it. I don't do anything too dangerous without making sure I am able to do it.

I have also decided to go vegan now. However instead of going straight to a vegan diet, I am slowly weaning off of cheese and milk untill I'm able to get the proper nutrients I need from a vegan diet such as essential aminio acids. I'd much rather do it smart and responsibly to my health than irresponsibly like many others do sad to say. If anyone has advice to give it would be greatly apreciated.
