You are starting a journal! And from what I see so far, you really like your cardio! especially in a group format! 2 hours of exercise classes! You have SOME endurance! I'm impressed!

I have ADHD and when I turned vegan I seemed to develop more energy. I really don't like cardio at all but I know if I don't I won't burn off the energy and won't sleep worth a hoot. I LOVE lifting weights it is when I can completely focus on me and the changes I am making :D . I just hope journaling keep me on track

Ok so today is supposed to be my rest day but I can feel it is going to be a night I have to hit the gym to expend some hyperactive energy....

I will however avoid lifting or working out.

1/2c grape nuts
1c almond milk
1/4c dried cranberries

Snack
1 brown rice cake
1 tbsp almond butter

Lunch
2 slices ezekiel bread
handful of spinach
3 slices field roast lentil sage deli slices
8 brussels sprouts
7 asparagus spears
1 carrot
1tbsp spicy brown mustard
onion

snack
1/2 green monster

Postworkout drink
12 oz almond milk
2 scoops rice protein powder

Supper
1 Field Roast smoked apple sage link
3/4c rotini noodle
olive oil and garlic powder

Your diet looks spot on! But I am wondering what are you eating for dinner?

I like the workout your friend the personal trainer wrote for your Back! I haven't done upright rows for so long. . . maybe I will take that into consideration next time I do my Back routine!

Dinner has been an issue I can't figure out. I am at the gym with all the classes and lifting after work and some nights I don't get home till late so my dinner is usually just a protein shake. I have thought about a sandwich for dinner but I don't know. I have tried eating when I get home but have to stay up and that is hard for me to do cause I am usually exhausted.

My friend actually took off deadlifts and put on the back extension and upright row. Told me to save the deadlifts for a legs day even though it is also a back exercise. The upright rows sure did feel good last night and 45 lbs was more than I ever considered doing.

Just wanted to make sure you are getting enough calories and that you don't push yourself into getting sick (first sign that your body is not getting what it needs to stay healthy). I have a protein shake at 9 at night, so I hear you (plus the plant based protein shakes seem to be easy to digest at night, so I do not have a heavy stomach when I do it that late at night, and right before bedtime an hour or so later). Sandwich is good also. Take one with you to the gym, and eat one on the way home after your workout (or perhaps at the gym, right after the workout - along with the protein shake you probably do also right after a workout). Another one that I like to do, is go and buy brown rice vegetarian sushi rolls (with avocado and carrots and pickled ginger - no wasabi for me please!) and just eat 2 or 3 of them a night (and save the other half for the next night - they keep pretty well in the frig). Cereal is another example of something healthy to eat at night that is quick (doesn't have to be just for breakfast!).

Not much on sushi unless it is asparagus rolls!! I will probably start packing a sandwich to eat at the gym since it will travel better and not need a fridge. Usually a protein shake tides me over cause of the almond milk and double serving of protein but tonight I am going to try a small dinner. Just ready for a big fat cinnamon roll and chai latte tomorrow, my treat from a local vegan bakery that are OMG good that even my meat eater friends try to steal my goodies from there!!
