Haha keep it coming Robert! I won't ask you to stop. I deactivated my FB today, decided it was too much of a distraction since I'm at my computer all day working in 3 different formats. So email or text is best for direct messages now.

Today
Morning
Scramble with garlic, tomatoes, & onions.
Raisin bagel
Snack
Brazil nuts
Afternoon
Korean ramen with seitan
white ice tea

The plan for tonight is light in-house work out (pushups, abs, jumping jacks, a little yoga stretching)
Plant fusion shake with bananas, blueberries, and almond milk.
Everything in the fridge salad
Get to sleep at a decent hour (i've been lacking in that area.

Stress is really taking its tole on me. I am getting less sleep and have less energy during workouts. Im going to continue to try and eat well and exorcise to try to keep my spirits up and make sure I don't slip into coming down with a cold or something while in this funk.

Hey Dylan! Hope you're feeling better than last week. I know how stress can wear you down and make you feel sick. Hope this week is less stressful for you and that you get some good rest!

Attempting to try and get others in my life involved in my quest for great health. Tonight my good friend and I ate vegan pizza at Vinnie's in Brooklyn. If you live in NYC this is a great spot. They have like 10 or more different vegan pizza options.

Workouts have been slipping a little from 4 days a week, down to 2 days a week, but I plan on getting them back up to 4 starting tomorrow.

I joined a new soccer team, we are called Messi Sheets (after Leo Messi and the soccer term clean sheet). I can't wait! My cardio definitely suffers when I'm not playing soccer, I hate running in the city or at a gym.

Cool to hear you're playing soccer again.

I know work and other things and push workouts to the wayside. Nice to see you incorporating it in a variety of ways.

All the best!

Keep after it!

CURSE OF THE SCALE. I never use scales, I've never even owned one before. BUT since there is one in my gf's bathroom....I am constantly checking my weight. I lost about 10 lbs about a year ago and have never been able to get it back since. I was hoping to be 15 lbs more than what I was before I lost the weight. I eat crazy calories and work out. I think maybe there is a parasite inside me. I am blaming sushi train, Portland, Oregon, circa 99-2008....

Dude, I know ways to pack it on. I've added about 16 pounds since November.

Been doing exclusively barbell and dumbbell compound exercises 4-5 times a week. Combined with eating a ton, it works well. For sure.

Check the mail on Mon or Tue. There will be a few items there which will help out.

Big weights and Big food will make the difference.

Woh so I tried P90X for the first time over the weekend. That is some serious business, my muscles were burning. I'd recommend it, the workouts anyway. The diet plan needs to be altered for non-meat eaters but most of the planning is centered around good ideas. Swap some hemp and some seitan for the turkey and the egg whites, np.

Nice!

Yeah, some of those workout programs that are popular these days are seriously tough! Non-stop, high intensity, total body stuff.

Keep after it!

Well the green vitamin powder in my protein shake make the whole thing taste bad so maybe i'll try 1 scope instead of 2 next time.
Steady doing squats trying to get legs ready for next weeks snowboard trip. I normally go like 10-15 times a year and this year I've only been once. This will be my 2nd and last of the season I'm sure.

Played basketball for the first time since....August, and felt it afterwards. Each sport has it's targeted muscles that seem to be particularly sore when doing them infrequently. Doesn't matter that I have kept regular with soccer, basketball still managed to kick my ass. Fortunately I won all 5 games with randomized teams each time. Being fairly in shape and my height advantage (have the players were asian) helps too. You can call me James Harden from now on.

continuing to do squats preparing for this weekends snowboard trip. I wonder how many days rent I need or when should be the last day I do leg exorcises if I will be riding on Saturday. I was thinking I do squats today and thursday and then rest friday but maybe I need thursday to rest my muscles as well. If anyone has suggestions let me know.

Well it was a great trip to camelback mountain but my snow legs were definitely not in prime shape since it was only my 2nd day of snowboarding this season and the first one was back in December. Knuckled many landings :( No hard crashes or injuries though so I can't complain.

Now back to trying to make my arms look bigger, my back stronger, and my legs faster.
