Thanks for setting up this challenge - it's awesome to know that you're not alone in this sometimes challenging journey. My goal is to compete in my first figure competition in July/Aug 2012.
I didn't think I'd be affected by the holiday - but OH BOY! I've gotten off track with diet for sure! Yikes! It's ok -I'm cleansing today and my delivery of organic fruits and veggies will be coming and I'll do weekly meal planning.
My other challenge is a "gimpy" knee. I had surgery in March 2011 and it still hasn't healed properly. I'm doing PT plus weights (Have Dr's clearance to train).

My other goal is to be more conscience of my protein intake. I think I'll have more gains if I do. I follow a mostly raw-vegan diet so I know I get enough protein for the average person. However for the muscle gains I need - I think I need to increase my (raw) protein shakes.

Here I go!!! :boxer:
