Today I woke up to a beautiful blanket of snow all over the farm at the house I grew up in back in Corvallis, OR. Awesome way to start the day! I haven't seen snow in a while since I moved to LA and FL last year, so it was cool to have a bit of a winter wonderland as we're nearing spring.
My sister and I carpooled back up to Portland.
When I got in town I hammered out a bunch of work promoting Vega online, catching up on emails, eating, and running errands. Shipped out more book postcards too. Anyone else want some? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
. Let's get the Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness book to the Top 100 on Amazon's Overall Best-Seller List!!!
After I hammered out work I went out to Food Not Bombs for a free meal and hung out with a bunch of cool people there. In fact, another forum member is there each time I go too, as well as some other new friends I've made just this week.
Got my eat on then had to shower to warm up. It was freezing with snow and ice on the ground and I was out there for over an hour and a half at the park tonight. Cold!
Then headed to the gym
Late night workouts keep me up late. Already after midnight now and I'm still eating, working and attempting to wind down, which make take a while.
Hit shoulders pretty hard today. Did upright rows for consecutive weeks for perhaps the first time in my life! It's just not an exercise I've done much at all, in any way.
Today's workout went like this:
Dumbbell lateral raises x 5 sets
Dumbbell front raises x 5 sets
Dumbbell rear delt raises x 5 sets
Dumbbell overhead press x 10 sets
Dumbbell Shrugs x 10+ sets
EZ curl bar upright rows x 7 sets
One hour exactly, showered, passed out more book promo cards in the locker room, got my protein drink on and came home to eat food.
I drank Vega pre-workout energy drink before the workout, Vega Sport Protein during the workout, a couple of scoops of Vegan Proteins powder after the workout, some leftovers from Food Not Bombs (potatoes, beets, carrots, kale, etc.), that muffin I mentioned and I'll go back in the kitchen in a minute to pile it on.
I should attempt to sleep soon.
Tossing on some good ol' country music now.
