Hello, I shall start with a brief introduction:
I am just getting back into weightlifting after a 2 year hiatus, except this time I am giving it my all. I've been training for about 3 months now and I'm increasing the intensity because I feel like I am some sort of unstoppable veggie-powered machine with tons of energy.
My goals include:
- Shedding 7-10lbs of "extra baggage"
- Benching 100lbs
- Doing pull-ups like it's a walk in the park
- Having awesome biceps
- Be a positive example of a healthy, strong, vegan
- Looking like I can beat some serious ass :D

This is me as of last night:

Okay, it's not much, but I am proud.

As of two days ago I have decided I can't gain muscle on a mere 30-40 grams of protein and Sour Patch Kids, so now I am aiming for 90-130 grams of protein and about 1600-1800 calories. I go to the gym 6 days a week and I feel my body can handle it. If I don't feel well or energized I back off and let myself rest.

I am using this log/blog to record my progress as wells as keep track of my food and workout schedule.
Here we go!

Yesterday:
I need to log my reps per sets, hopefully the desire to post them with help with this. For today I will just post the weight I did, I usually do 3 sets.

Legs:
Squats: 45lb (I'm a squat newbie)
Calf raises: Bodyweight + 60lbs
Lunges: Bodyweight + 40lbs
Leg press: 220lbs

Mini Chest Workout
Bench: 57lbs (Did a lot more reps then I usually do but was very shaky)
Dumbbell Bench: 20lb flat weights
**Should I record this as 40lbs since I used 20lb dumbbells??**




Today:
Usually Mondays are rest days since I do my volunteer work at the shelter, but I felt some light exercise would be acceptable since I took off Saturday (I pigged out on Saturday for the record).

20 minutes elliptical at light-moderate pace.

Food:
Cheerios + Soymilk
Almonds
Boca Chick'n salad (boca chick'n burger, romaine lettuce, dill, parsley, tomatoes, cucumber)
Rice protein shake
Oatmeal + Strawberry soy protein powder
Kashi cereal
Popcorn (I looooove popcorn and cannot resist its deliciousness+ it has 8g protein per 1/2cup unpopped so I don't feel too bad)

2 cans diet soda :(

Calories: 1640 Protein: 85g

Usually it's just recorded as 20lbs. Ie, db bench 5 x 20 would be read as 5 reps with 20lb dumbbells.

Thanks guys, I NEED encouragement/feedback I don't have anyone that cares about my workout or has any respect for my vegan/animal rights views so hopefully hearing from others I can relate to will give me extra motivation.

Yes, I care for 4 beautiful girls. Rats are awesome!

Today:
Rather productive today didn't have time to go to the gym till the evening since I cooked dinner for my family (I just graduated college and I am back living with my parents till I find a job). I am a horrible cook but I enjoy cooking for the family and take pleasure in knowing my family gets one vegan meal a week. They are beginning to realize that vegan food tastes good.

I was drained by gym time and did horrible today. Biceps are my weakest point and I have made very little progress (if any) in the 3 months I've been weight lifting.

Tricep Extension:
30x13
30x11
35x4

Dip Machine:
100x11
100x10
100x6

Rope Pushdown:
45x10
45x8
45x6

Bar Pushdown:
50x7
50x6
45x8

Curl Machine:
35x8
35x5
30x10

Curls:
15x??
15x7left 15x6right
15x6left 15x6right

I did horrible tonight and I know it was probably a combination of it being late and my stomach still being full from dinner, but I usually have "bad" bicep days. I wonder if I am ever going to get to be where I want.. I just feel weak.

Food: Ate about 1600-1800 calories and 55grams protein

EDIT: Sorry for being such a bummer, a lot of scary changes are coming my way and I guess it's really getting to me lately.

Just got back from seeing my boyfriend off to grad school and his new apartment, 3 1/2 hour drive from me. : ( Hopefully I can find a job near him so we can at least see each other once and awhile. I guess this was a good end to a 4 year relationship.

Managed to gain 5lbs this week while away, by not working out, eating sugary crap foods all day (I probably ate 5,000+ calories a day).
It's amazing how tired I am, food really plays an important role in how you feel.
Back to the gym tomorrow. Hopefully some healthy foods will make me come alive again.
