Okay, accountability is what it's all about for me... waaah! Let's do it.Name:
Started weight training about a year and a half ago. Have lost weight and put on mass but have not been disciplined enough with fitness and nutrition (changed that now!)Goals:
To do ONE bicep pullup and one wide grip pullup unassisted; to get bigger; reduce body fat; improve fitness overall; better flexibility; squeaky clean eating; be a poster child for vegan BB/fitness Eating:
Vegan since March 2012.Workout:
Currently 4 day split for weights; aim for cardio daily. Problems:
I have really poor flexibility and need to work more on stretching; perfectionism (hate training without my buddy-spotter as I feel frustrated that I'm not working as hard)Weight:
Currently 70.8kg/156lbs (got down to 67.5kg three months ago then slacked off over winter...) Used to weigh nearly 90kg/198lbs in Jan 2011. Still a lot of body fat to lose.
I had chronic back pain a year ago and horrible slouching. That's all gone now.

(weight loss of 500g this week, started daily cardio one week ago but super clean eating four days ago)
Going easier on weights as trainer-buddy and I had a break and have jumped in to lots of cardio, so she decided to drop the intensity a bit for now as we focus on fat loss.
Chest and Triceps day

1 hour bootcamp session. Lots of jogging... couldn't do the pushups on toes as I was totally pooped from chest+tris work.
1200 calories burnt (yeah I'm a calorie counter, it's the only way I can keep on track and make smarter choices about food!)
