Eating Vegan is a totally new concept for me... like most other people I have been taught that we eat meat for protein and vitamins and drink milk for our bones... why little kid doesn't want to grow up to be strong?? I'd never even thought about cutting out my meat and milk until I got some blood work done and my cholesterol was sky high. That's when I took it upon myself to do some research and learn ab out the changes I can make to my diet to help correct that problem. The more I learned though, the more I wanted to do vegan all the way... no sometimes milk or cheese or sometimes seafood, but all the way. When I finished reading Thrive, I was 100% committed to changing my lifestyle and I still haven't looked back. I knew I wanted to keep up bodybuilding, so I picked up Robert's book and read it front to back in two days... so here I am. Hopefully I can make some friends who are like minded and more knowledgeable than myself so I can take my body to the next level...

I think I'm ready.

Yesterday I did legs and abs and I am really feeling the effects of it today.

I didn't get the amount of protein I wanted to intake. I consumed 150 grams whereas I would have liked to get 180-200.

Tomorrow I will make sure to get in an extra shake.

Third time this week with my PT. I should really start thinking about writing down everything I am doing... weight and reps.... I have just been relying on him for months.

Tonight was biceps and triceps and we supersetted all of our exercises. This is the first week that we have begun to work supersets into the workout. I really like the burn, but my muscles get fatigued much more quickly, especially with changing weight.

I can finally see the definition starting to show in my triceps, my biceps are progressing a little bit slower.

I'm having such a hard time getting the right amount of protein with the right amount of calories... it seems i go over my caloric intake when I consume 180g proteins.

Sundays are usually my free days. It was 72 degrees today in sunny Savannah, GA.

I spent my day at the park playing soccer with some friends. Took fruit with me to snack on throughout the day.

2 apples
2 bananas
1 cup blueberries
1 cup strawberries
1 cup blackberries
1 slice Ezekiel toast with tofutti cream cheese
4 scoops Vega complete
2 servings hemp protein

I still haven't had dinner yet and I'm pondering on hitting the gym for some stair master time

Part 2

Went to gym. 40 min elliptical level 8 hills and 10 min stair climber

fruit protein smoothie: mixed plant protein with an orange and pineapple chunks
steamed carrots, broccoli, cauliflower

My work is usually the hardest place to eat healthy because there is so much delicious temptation around (vegan junk food if you would) but today I did a pretty good job. I ate more fruit than usual, but I don't see that as a problem though.

After work I went to the gym and did 45 min of elliptical intervals on 7 and then 15 min of abs where I tried to focus on mainly my obliques... they really don't get worked enough I think.

My protein is a little lower than usual today. I want to add more to my daily intake but my calories are already where I want them to be. Not sure.... should I intake the extra calories or protein or stay as is? I have three back to back session with my trainer in the next few days... I'm unsure. Thinking about the extra calories.

Right Now
1,927 cal
64g fat
250carb
128g protein
