Almost. I'm at basically 169. I was not able to really update my journal because school started and thas been intense. I've still been working out and keeping track but there's just not enough time in the day to do everything and the one day I was gonna update everything it had already been a week so I've already lost my opportunity for jan goods but your input was helpful and I've gained some more mass.

-Builder Bar
-Steamed Veggie Dumplings with Steamed White Rice
-Vega Pre and Post Workout

Rest day. Just been spending the past few days eating and resting and making sure to intake lots of Aminos via Vega Protein to speed up my muscle/bone recovery.

One more rest day. I'm definitely going to go tomorrow. I'm sick of not doing anything. This is getting really frustrating. My shoulder is not as sore as it has been but I feel like not doing anything is bad too. I'm going tomorrow if it means just doing more reps with less weight. I can't fall behind again. My ribs put me out of commission with a lot of things and maybe i'm being stubborn but I need to do this.

Today I was a little naughty and lifted more than I should have. I didn't do any bad damage but I probably should have kept my ego in check a little better and just stayed with the lighter weights to keep it safe.

Chest Press (4 sets):

1. 50lbs (15 reps)
2. 50lbs (10 reps)
3. 190lbs (10 reps)
4. 90lbs (10 reps)

Thoughts - Ouch!


Biceps Curl Machine (4 sets):

1. 70lbs (12 reps)
2. 70lbs (12 reps)
3. 70lbs (12 reps)
4. 70lbs (10 reps)


Hammer Curls (2 sets):

1. 30lbs (10 reps)
2. 20lbs (10 reps)


Seated Cable Chest Press (3 sets):

1. 70lbs (10 reps)
2. 50lbs (10 reps)
3. 40lbs (10 reps)


Stability Ball Crunches:
-100 reps


Crunches Raised Leg:
-25 reps


Today was a catch-up day of sorts I suppose. Wanted to do a little of everything. I think today was more about self esteem than anything and I'm not sure if that was accomplished but I did attain a new max on the chest press. My shoulder is still irritated of course :(

Thoughts - Today was another self-esteem day and I feel a lot better. It's easy to get super bummed when you're hurt and can't lift something you KNOW you can otherwise lift. I have to start over on the bench press a little and move back down to 135 for a little while when I feel comfortable doing it because of my shoulder and that bums me out. Bench is my favorite and we were gonna move up from 165 to 185. It's definitely a test of will and patience and a thousand other things.


Since today is the last day I want to give a shout out to Robert for rallying everyone together as usual to do something large and awesome. He came through for all of us and got us all some really cool stuff just for participating.

Thanks to all of the sponsors who looked beyond profit for a moment to support the vegan athlete community unconditionally. The vegan community in general is one of the best things to be a part of for the sole fact that everyone seems to have a general interest in looking out for fellow vegans and showing genuine heart. Good job everyone.

I'd also like to give a shout out to my Vegan Fitness coach who gave me some rock solid advice from the get-go and got me to just shy of my goal (169 lbs when my goal is 170 is a success to me). He was a really good source of information and very helpful in tweaking my exercise routine to something that really catered to my strengths. Thanks a lot Ryan! You're the man.
