I NEED MOTIVATION!! PLEASE HELP Any suggestions? What motivates you when you are in a slump?


Don't think, just leave go and train. I feel best when I Leave in the mornings. I feel best in the mornings that I finished a workout and I have the rest of the day to do what ever that needs to be done. I also find it goes a lot faster, if could be because I'm still half asleep lol
When my eyes are awake, I get up without thinking get dressed and leave.
Stop procrastinating just go and you'll feel good after words. I feel the best before I work and less guilty that I didn't get a change to pound my body that day :)

What classes do you teach?

I am teaching a 30min abs and back class ( lower back ) 1 hr of kickboxing Kenpo style and a 15 min AB class. I never really have true excuses so I guess it boils down to why don't I really want this? :boxer:

OK so I really think I'm going to wait until next season to compete. I just feel like starting a vegan nutrition, and then trying to compete would be too much to take in. I really need to familiarize myself with the way of life before I learn how to manipulate it and get on stage. I still need to lean out because I would feel a hell of a lot more comfortable, and of course Costa Rics in Oct. At least I still have a goal of some sorts. My hubby will be 40 in oct so he wants to be in great shape as well. I'm proud of him for eating vegan while he's still in Cali. I know he won't ever switch completely, but he's doing a great job trying it out!! I still need pictures to post and continue on my progress.

I love teaching classes, I'm actually getting ready to add a grp strength at the end of the month. My legs have always been a strong feature, I'm just a lucky enough woman to be able to lean out IN my legs. My muffin tops are usually the last to go :)

Ok..I didn't ask you to send me links..I've seen all the literature thanks..I've been vegan for many years now!
I just asked YOU to give me a valid moral reason why he couldn't eat eggs in these circumstances. I'd love it if you could come up with one because i've had this same converstion MANY times with my hardcore activist group..and none of them can give a valid reason. The one thing we all agreed on however, is that veganism comes from within and not without. It's the feeling inside which makes you a vegan, not whether or not you follow the "rules" of being a vegan as defined by wikepedia!!
I would hate to use wikepedia define what i am!!
I'm not trying to piss anyone off here its just i think its stupid to let a dictionary definition mould your whole life when it should be the vegan ethic you have inside which defines your diet and lifestyle for you.



Anyways, Fizeek you have a great build, and a pretty solid diet. I'm glad to see you transitioning your diet, even if you don't go full vegan, I appreciate the effort you are making, as every bit counts.

I'll be following the log, you look great!

This weekend wasn't the most productive on the workout scale. I had a couple of meetings at businesses on Fri, and then the power went out that night (power company's fault) Worked Sat, and then cleaned house/mowed lawn Sun. I stocked up on everything and tried some marinated tempeh which was WONDERFUL!!! I have had no problems getting my protein in everyday.

I will be doing 30 min on the stairs, some jogging this afternoon and upper body. STILL NEED PICTURES!! :boxer: :boxer:

Well, I won't need any specialized workout this week except cardio. I will have taught 6 classes by the end of the week, of which most are an hr!! I have been running a little and I'm very glad my knees aren't hurting afterwards. I've learned to shorten my stride like when I'm race walking and it's making a huge difference in efficiency!! (DUA) Nutrition is good even though I haven't been getting in all of my calories. It's just too dang hot outside and ya'll know it cuts your appetite. I've definitely been drinking my gallon.

Walking the dogs tonight later when it cools off.

I just came across your blog here. Great stuff.

I noticed when I switched to a vegan diet as a competitor I got leaner faster. My protein levels were greatly reduced, but I don't think I suffered much if any muscle loss compared to my meat eating competitive physique.

What show are you going to do?

I probably won't do any this year just because I want to get this thing down packed for next yr. I was seriously thinking about one in KS in oct, but opting out. It's definately easier than I thought eating this way and my other vegan buddies said it took them about 4-6 months for their body to drastically change and stay leaner. I don't think I lose muscle either, I just have a hard time losing fat!!
