I see you're enjoying lots of Vega, just like me! I think I have 11 servings of various Vega products just in the past 2 days. Possibly more, factoring bars, pre and post workout products :)

How are things going? Did you have a great weekend?

Hope all is well. Keep up the great work!

Robert, I LOVE the vega sport chocolate. It is the only non soy vegan protein powder that I have actually enjoyed. FINALLY, after 12 long years! I really quite enjoy that electrolyte hydrater powder you sent samples of, I might have to see if I can find some! And the chocolate coconut protein bars are delicious.

My weekend flew by, did not start off too well. I think I kind of fell into a bit of a rut. Not sure why, or what caused it. Yesterday I was sore, and tired. And did not have energy but I forced myself (which I never have to do) to go to the gym for some cardio. As always, I was glad that I went when I got there. I go to a smaller gym, and almost my whole gym family (all the regulars i see from day to day) were there, on a Sunday. It was wonderful. :)

Still a bit sore today, but have been training longer, harder the last few weeks. Just heading to the gym now before work and am going to have a date with the foam roller.

Thanks for checking in. <3
Tiff

Awesome job, Tiff!

Great to see all that Vega in there too. I'm using a ton of Vega as well.

Keep up the great work. Have an awesome week!

Today was a bad day on my end. Got bit on the hand by a friends great dane that i am looking after. So instead of my 5:30am workout i was at the emerg and in terrible pain. Did not eat nearly enough today but tried to keep it healthy. Slept most of the day and will try a leg workout with my trainer in the morning [sigh]

I'll be following up with you soon. Just wanted to drop in to say hi.

Hope your hand is recovering well and spirits are up. Nice work on legs and abs as your hand recovers.

All the best! Keep after it!
