Very new to this! Vegetarian for a year, and Vegan for the last month and sticking to it!
New to "proper" fitness as well, play a lot of football (soccer) and cricket. My new goal is to run a 1/2 marathon (or 2 in 2012), at least 2 full marathons in 2013 and then a 50 mile ultramarathon.
Main reasons for turning vegan (high raw) was because of health reasons and the double standards of saying "ah how cutre/ nice" to one animal and then devouring another, just plain wrong.
My current health stats are:
Male, 21, Height: 5"5, Weight: 50kg (did a massive juice fast and lost 20kg of fat and water)
My goal is to get to 60kg by mid 2012 in muscle and be able to get faster and run longer! A six pack would be nice as well
My journal for today (Saturday 31st December 2011) was:
meal 1: 6 bananas (medium size), soy milk, and wheatgrass powder blended into a smoothie.
meal 2: Lentil soup with rice and steamed brocolli
meal 3: Made too much for lunch so had the same for dinner! Lentil soup with rice and steamed brocolli
Snacks: Apple juice, apple, orange juice (500ml), 2 oranges.
Jogging - 10km (would have times this but forgot my watch)
15 push ups, Yoga, Bicep curls (3kg weight (building up slowly!) 200 times)
1km sprint on an exercise bike!
Is this what the training journal is supposed to be like? 1st time, only joined today!
Happy New Year all
