Training and diet have been good for the last few days. Today I did bi/tris/shoulders. Changed up my bis/tris program a bit as I think I needed to make changes to increase results. Yesterday I had an extra scoop of gemma because I was hungry. I am trying to remember that it is ok to add something in on my plan when I need to. No starving and no overtraining. Easy to say and really hard to do. Still debating about Sat comp. My suit looks good but the numbers are up on ths scale. No decision until Thursday.

Thanks for checking in. I have really been struggling with diet for the last few weeks. I just can't seem to find my drive to get comp ready. Although I have been eating large amounts for the last few weeks I have only put on 5lbs so not so bad. My training has been good with 7 days of running and 3 days a week of weight training. I am doing about 30miles per week so I think that has kept my weight under control even though I sometimes eat up to 5000 cals a day. (crazy, huh?) And yes it is all good stuff. I am going to shoot for the Natural Universe in L.A. on 11/6. I am hoping that will motive me. I will try and post daily to keep myself in check and pushing forward.

Good day yesterday with
2 scoops gemma pea, banana
2 large bowls of green veggies with balsamic and flax seed oil
one can pumpkin
one apple
to sore to train yesterday since I did two days of 1 1/2 hour runs so my knees were on fire. This morning I ran for 1 1/2 hrs. at 5am for 7.5 miles. Nice and slow to protect those joints. Felt good.

I have been neglecting posting for a while so it is time. Next comp.: Denver 10/30. I have changed up my training a bit. One body part a week with heavier weights. 5 sets per exercise w/6,6,10,10,12 rep range for this week. Cardio 5 days per week at 45 mins, this week. The program was in M&F this month and it looked perfect for me. Just started it on Sat and huge change in cal burn. I usually only burn 500 cals in my workouts and with this program I am burning 725-800 cals per training and only with about an extra 10-15 mins of time in the gym, with less cardio. It is good! My goal is to drop 10lbs by next show and increase muscle size. 7 weeks to go.

Well 6 weeks to go. MY leg workout was so tough on Tues. I am still limping around. I love the new workout program with alot more emphasis on weight training. Trying to drop down on carbs starting today. I have decided to give tofu and tofu meats a try again since that seems to be the only way to really drop carbs, that and my gemma shakes. However, without tofu all I am eating is protein powder so I am going to go the soy route again. I hope that I can still cut up with soy.

I finally got photos from my last show. I am happier with the pictures then I thought. It gave me a little inspiration for the next comp on 10/30 in Denver. I think I have attached them.

I have no idea how to re size photos (I'm not a computer wiz). I usually use tinypic. I guess you could just post a link to whatever site you use. hopefully someone else is more helpful than I am!

Thank you! It is going to rock! I will make sure that I will be wearing my vegan garb loud and proud. My new catch phrase "No animals were harmed in the making of this physique". Go vegan bodybuilders!!! I will report on Monday and also will give the count of "where do you get your protein from" questions.
