Great work, George! (Pun intended!) :D

I love that YOU are "feeling great and loving life"!!!!!

Your food looks delicious too. Do you make your own tortilla soup? If so, how?

Thanks!
Karen

Today was shoulders and cardio.

Military Press: 4 sets x 12, 10, 8, 8 reps
Lateral Dumbbell Raises: 4 x 10 - 12 reps
Bent Over Dumbbell Raises: 4 x 10
Cardio: Running on the treadmill at 7.2 mph for 30 minutes (3.58 miles)

Breakfast: Fruit Smoothie with hemp protein, peanut butter and jelly on Ezekiel toast, vitamins, glass of water
Snack: Almonds, apple, glass of water
Lunch: Black bean burger, lettuce, tomato, pickles and onion, glass of water
Snack: Protein drink
Dinner: Black bean, avocado, sweet pepper burrito (Ezekiel wrap), glass of water

Note to all: my wife makes our tortilla soup. We use a recipe from the Vitamix recipe book, substituting vegetable broth for the chicken broth. It is very good.

Note: I have not felt this good, or looked this good (according to my wife) in a long time. What took me so long to switch to a plant based, whole food diet?

Even though I did not make an entry yesterday, I did train. I trained my arms yesterday.

Barbell Curls: 4 sets x 12, 10, 8, 8 reps
Dumbbell Curls: 3 sets x 10 reps
Concentration Curls: 3 sets x 12 reps
Close Grip Bench Press: 4 sets x 12, 10, 10, 9 reps
Lying Triceps Extensions: 3 sets x 10 reps
Rope Cable Pushdowns: 3 sets x 12 reps

I forgot what I ate already, but it was good.

Today I ran on the treadmill for 45 minutes at 7.2 mph. That resulted in 5.41 miles.

Nutrition was not where I want it, due to a busy schedule of kids sports. I did manage to get two protein drinks, vegetable dumplings, celery with hummus and Tuscan Bean & Rice soup, crackers and daiya cheese. Lots of water was consumed.

Tomorrow is leg training day. :mrgreen:
