I love happy endings, which I am sure this one will be.

Happiness is a personal choice!
I am the sole source of all my sadness and joy.

depends on the thoughts and
opinions and applause of other men."

Post April 25th grand finale show number 2 / documentary consumed life report:

since 04/25 i have trained a total of about 15 - 20 training sessions TOTAL. Basically I have been completely sedentary, for me. Diet has been nowhere near what it used to be, eating care free.

On the flip side, slowly and surely getting back into a clean and regimented nutrition rich diet without overeating and consistent training sessions.

Ah, man what a day makes! lol

Anyhow, current goals = 3-4 times per week for 30min-1hr per training session for one month straight. Once I can include working out as a focal point in my life again with consistent attendance alone in the gym, then it will be time to kick it up a notch BIG TIME >:)

09/16 Legs (were sore as heck after this workout) #1 for this week
squats 135x10 4 sets
hammer strength single leg curls 25lb per leg x 10 4 sets

09/17 (today) Chest
Incline Barbell Press 115x12 3 sets
Incline Dumbell Press 40x10 3 sets
Decline Barbell Press 115x10 3 sets

I need to get on using the shoulder horn that VeganEssentials so generously sent our way, love that guy :)


Not that I haven't been successful these last couple of months. Me and dani have REALLY REALLY grew and developed our bond together soooo much. Relationships take a lot of work, even the 'perfect' ones that look so easy an outside perspective.

Also, I found work and I am in banking kicking butt. My job is merit based as far as raises and month bonus and I have been holding steady at number 2 in my ranking out of the 35 people in my department doing the same job for as much as 6 months more than I have. Did I mention i've been on the floor for only a month?! :D I'm just happy that now I can contribute financially and dani can soon hopefully take a break while I grow and eventually support us for a while so she can find some peace of mind. Also, who else is going to www.veganproteins.com . Dani's got a hold on that, she just needs the time to put the work in. We both do but we're working towards that right now.

I should be at VegFest this weekend at the VBBF booth with our products and to hang. I work all day but i should be there from 4-8pm.

ok that's enough, save room for another day of posting. Night all; miss you guys so much.

Good to finally see an update again, L&G! Get on that shoulder horn - I want to hear about you being totally rehabbed by year's end :D

Congrats on kicking butt at the new job - I would have never doubted you to be at the top of your game in anything you take on :D Hope you and Dani are doing really well, and we'll have to catch up one of these days!

Alot has happened since the bbing comp but nothing in the bbing dept and the diet has ceased for awhile. By choice, i've decided to share some social personal time with processed foods and my loved one. I must admit, physically I feel much better in a wholly unprocessed/raw diet. However, mentally I am comforted by my current choices. I will eventually go back to a raw foods diet and i'm sure that will happen as soon as I can train consistently again. It's only a matter of time... budday. I'm sure the whole story will be illustrated in the documentary, which is delayed but will be done! Hopefully next year. What a doosy that was; i'm ready for part II (don't tell thendanisays that or Bvp663 for that matter) :P

Anyhow going to try and get that workout in today and also go to veloce bikes and put some puncture resistant tires that grip the road well in the rain. That way I can commute as well and start getting back into exercise. I really need to...

Anywho on a different note, http://www.veganproteins.com is now carrying VEGA SPORT. It's finally available in the States so I wanted to pick up a great product for endurance and energy. Come check us out ;)

aluck, no clue at this point; I really need to focus on the here and now. I keep letting other patterns take precedence. I had alot of chores to run today and also I hung with dani at her job for 3 hrs as she never looks happier than when I am there. She hates that job more than anything and that's my way of helping :D So it cut into my time and I forbade the bike shop visit and gym. Oh well, i'll get there, just keep on a truckin' I suppose. It's more like no time a week at the moment. Perplexing and upsetting at the same time but nevertheless I am still accomplishing alot. Finances are back in check, personal growth, other stuff, etc, etc...

I know myself it's either all or nothing and I always want it all. So as soon as the party starts, it's not gonna stop. Now all I have to do is show up and pump some IRON.

Re: LnG's is training and getting back to RAW >:-)

#223 Postby Lean and Green » Sat Nov 14, 2009 6:47 pm

SHE's Awesome :-)

I got two workouts in this week so far. Tuesday Upper Back and Thursday Chest and Abs.

As for RAW, I have mentally committed to getting back to a high/all raw diet but physically I still have to change my consistent pattern of eating which includes cooked food. I'll get there. As soon as my training is 100% I know that RAW will be 100% of my intake because I honestly feel that is by and far the most beneficial fuel for your body and I acheieve the greatest results from it.

Here's to getting back at it and getting on stage a year from that day. ;)

As for now, there is still much work to do today. I need to change our auxillary battery in the trunk of our Prius. Darn thing was so expensive so i'm installing it myself. Then hopefully some yardwork. Then some dinner for me and thendanisays.

How about purchasing at the counter at a toyota dealership and being serviced by the counterlady who turns out to be a female ex vegan bber. She was doing it for awhile but as of late added some meat into her diet. Either which way, only in portland will i be serviced at the car dealership by a rad vegan friendly athlete.... BUDDAY. And of course the first name she threw out was Roberts. YEAAAAAAAAA BUDDDDDAY! ;)

i need to be on vbbf more. i miss it so...
