I really only shop at Vons and Wholefoods. I pass right by Sprouts on my way to Whole Foods, but they don't have as good deals, and I prefer Whole Foods anyway.

Walked like...4 or 5 miles today. Trained my abs too.

I got my huaraches in and assembled. Much better than Vibram Five Fingers. New favorite shoe.

2-17-12 Day B: 5:40PM-6:40PM
Dumbbell Deadlifts 196lbs x5x5x5x5x5 ->Stay
Weighted Pullups +25lbs x5x5x4x5x4 ->Stay
Dumbbell Shoulder Press 2x48lbs x5x5x4x5x4 ->Stay
Dumbbell Side Raises 2x28lbs x8x8x8x6 ->Stay
Shrugs 110lbs x9x10x10x9 ->Stay

I was going to work out fasted today but I passed my 18hr window dealing with UPS losing my weight vest...So I had a peanut butter sandwich and a glass of soy milk and lifted 45min later. I am destroyed cause I did my 1hr and 15min in 1 hr, I reduced rest time between my shoulder and shrug movements to just 1 min, but I think I would have tanked if I lifted fasted. I am going to try lifting on less, like a glass of soymilk maybe, or an apple, or both. But I am still wary of fasted lifting, though I will try it at least once.

I stop eating at around 11pm and fast until 3pm or 5pm the next day. The plan is to break fast right after I complete my routine with a protein shake at 3-5Pm. I will try this with a light jog tomorrow. And lifting on Sunday. If it doesn't I'll break fast at 3-4 with a light snack, lift, then go full on eating.

UPS still hasn't found my weighted vest. ):<

I walked bunches today in my new 'Invisible Shoes' huaraches. They are replacing my Vibram Five Fingers as my new footwear.

I changed my routine again. Oh well. I just kind of got bored with the other one.

2-19-12 Chest/Triceps 2:47PM-3:40PM
Weighted Pushups +75lbs x5x5x5x5x5 ->80lbs (First time I struggled on these)
Weighted Dips +45lbs x5x5x5x3x4 -> +47.5lbs
Chest Flys 2x48lbs x8x8x8x7 ->Stay
Triceps Suspension Strap Raises +25lbs x8x7x6x8 ->Stay

It's worth noting I did a standard pushup on a scale and it registered 100lbs of my body weight. So I'm really doing 175lb pushups, and you really do feel it. UPS has still not found my Mbody Strength vest, hopefully they will have located it soon, as my backpack is ripping to shreds. lol.

My new routine is:

Chest/Triceps

Back/Biceps

Legs

Abs 2x a week, running 2x a week.

I was doing this and will eventually go back because I did like it.

Chest Light/Legs Lightt/Biceps/Lats

Back-Entire/Legs-Light/Lats/Shoulders

Chest Medium/Back-Upper/Legs Light

Abs 2x a Week, Calves 2x a week, Running 2x a week.

These are my two favorite routines thus so far, both following 5x5/4x8-10

bummer on the vest! I was up your way today...college / lemon grove- funky weather. I went to the beach yesterday and walked almost 5 fast- may do again tomorrow- tide was out and so walked the sand- Roller coaster to Diamond. One of my faves the last 20 plus years. I read you walk the Bay ...a good walk. Do you do any local races since you run? I ran w/ San Diego track club for years...great group filled with world class runners and a ton of multi talented athletes. The Coach has been recognized by the Presidents Council for Physical fitness...we are so lucky to love in such a fit city. Have you been to the Whole Foods in La Jolla or the newer one in Encinitas. Hope your stomach is feeling better and your fasting and all is working well with your workouts.

Yeah the weather has been weird, I just want it to be warm. I don't do any local races, though I did see a bunch of participants of one a few days ago down near the marina.

There's more than one Whole Foods in San Diego....I guess I will be going to La Jolla to check it out on Wednesday.

And my guts are great, I worked out fasted today, actually felt really good.

5 min jog, 20 min sprinting at 15 sec sprints, 2:45 sec rest, 5 min jog. Did about 7 sprints. Destroyed.

Edit oh, I did abs too, hanging leg raises 3x10 and 10lb plate oblique crunches 3x10. My abs and obliques are pretty damn weak.

Oh and I just ate this for dinner, 1c rice, 1/2c tofu, 2c spinach/broccoli with chives soy sauce and mint green tea w/ soymilk. The trick is to add chives during the last few minutes of cooking the rice, and cook the tofu and veggies together in olive oil, soy sauce, and a bit of chili powder.

2-23-11 Back/Biceps
DB Deadlits 196lbs x5x5x5x5x5 -> Needs moar iron, some day. I am in a wee bit o debt
Weighted Pullups +25lbs x5x5x4x4x4 ->Stay
One Arm DB Rows 103lbs x5x5x5x4x4 ->105.5lbs
Weighted Hammer Chinups +25lbs x5x4x4x3 ->Stay
DB Curls 2x38lbs x8x8x7x7 ->Stay

I worked out on a bit of Now True Food Vegan yesterday as I had read totally fasted lifting was not a good idea. I will get some BCAA to take instead soon. But I racked up a bit of debt with my purchases so I need to sort that out soon.

I feel really good on my fasts. Very calm and relaxed. My strength has not changed, but my body fat has dropped a bit, but it's slowed down a lot making me realize this diet is not dangerous or muscle if I am losing fat so slowly.

I will probably sprint today for 20min.

I'm not sure. I developed pain in my foot after waling in them for a few days. Not sure what the issue is.

Ran 4 miles today. At an 8 minute pace. Must improve.

Dinner was 1c quinoa, 1c lentils with carrots onion and garlic, 2c mixed veggies, and 1c soymilk. Mmm.

The quinoa+lentils did NOT go over well and I ended up with a blockage.

So now I am eating this cause I barely digested that. I made too much, anyone want some?

Ok...some more vegan bakes:
OB people's has a fresh bake case
La Jolla Whole foods has a Vegan cookie or two in their bakery case
Jimbos always has something vegan and GF in their bake cases, all 4 stores
And in OB on Voltarie, there is Stephanie's Bakery, a dedicated vegan bakery

This is what comes to mind. There are a few more.

Jimbos is good. Not the best, but good. Carlsbad store has best deli and bakery.

Jimbo's, and that restaurant are too far away for me to get to on public transit. I will check out People's and Stephanie's one of these days.

Will probably head up to the La Jolla Whole Foods this week for dinner and/or dessert.
