Apologies for the late reply Dylan...

a punnet: - It's a british word for plastic carton. So it's just what the grapes here are sold in- probably equates to about 4 American cups.

Oatcakes with yeast extract: No fancy recipe I'm afraid. I just spread the marmite on the oatcakes and eat them whilst pretending their twiglets!


Haven't updated on here for a while as I had a pec injury and a 4 day bout of sickness....quite frustrating as it's the 3rd time I've been ill since xmas. I have such a sturdy immune system most of the time- but I think working at a very busy gym exposes me to more germs than most!
Any other vegans who hate admitting when they're unwell to non-vegans? I'm always met with the response 'maybe you should eat some meat'....
....
....
Yes, you're right- dead decaying flesh in my colon really is the cure!


Anyway-
took my bodyfat reading with callipers at the end of last week and I'm down to 18.9%. I'm very pleased as a few monthst ago I was at about 23%- and I've only just started a leaning out program with additional cardio.

Today's workouts;

30 minutes running

Chest:
Push Ups (really trying to improve how many I can do, bodyweight strength is so impressive)
Incline Bench (Drop Sets)
Pec Dec Flyes
Decline Bench

Biceps:
EZ Barl Curls
Hammer Curls

On top of this I do my 2.5 mile walk to work in the evening and 2.5 miles back in the evening.

Food - so far:

Breakfast-

Porridge with raisins, sunflower seeds and natural sugar free blackcurrant jam (it's just like rice pudding!)

Apple

Quickest Bean Salad (Forks Over Knives recipe- tastiest bean salad I've ever had)

^^^lol very true

Thursday 29th March
REST DAY

Oats, raisins, seeds and soya milk

Large falafel salad from Pilpel

1/2 tub raw vegan ice cream (Hunky Punky chocolate by Booja Booja)

1/2 punnet of green grapes and a raw food bar

Another raw food bar (by Nakd)

2 sweet potatoes, sweetcorn, peas, kidney beans and homemade chilli sauce

Really needed a rest today- my legs are still aching from a workout that I did at the beginning of the week.
Hopefully the DOMS has faded tomorrow before I teach Spin!

Wait what? Marmite? Twiglets? There is no english to american english translator when I google searched.... Want to start one? Let's team up! We'd make millions.
Are your workouts and your punnets of fruit still bountiful?

^^^^

thanks for posting this-
I'd kinda stopped making time for my training journal on here. I have of course still been training- just not using the net half as much!

Punnets of fruit are stil going strong- although now I have switched to bags of grapes as the punnets sold in Tesco's have been a bit manky.

The american-english-american translation idea sounds genius!

How is your training going Dylan?

Well if you check out my log you will see it is a bunch of rubbish. Ha do you say rubbish? But seriously I keep one but it can get kind of random sometimes. Feel free to check it out and poke fun at me.
