Green Girl's Fitness Journal

#1 Postby greengirl » Thu Dec 29, 2011 7:17 pm

This is my first official post in my training log!
I have gone through ups and downs with exercise plans, had a bad knee injury that set me back about a year in time. After intense physio therapy and finding a great personal trainer/life coach, my knees are allowing me to get strong again. I started with my trainer in June 2011, and am able to do almost anything in the gym aside from some jumping related exercises. Over a good part of that year, I found although eating healthy I was unable to exercise due to severe pain. I am currently trying to find the perfect exercise/diet plan that will help reduce my BF% and gain more muscle. Since working with my trainer, I have become a lot stronger and only want to go further. I was having a hard time over the last few years gym hopping until I found this one and feel like I have a family team there supporting me each and every day. I am excited and ready to be a part of the 12 days of Vegan BB&F program and hope it will help me stick to my workout/meal plans in January. I am ready and determined!

Vegan for: 12 years
AGE: 27 years (on Jan 7)
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 189.4lbs
BF: 23%
