Hey, welcome to my training journal! I was using MyFitnessPal for a while, but I figured I'd find a lot better feedback and accountability here with all you pros! I've loved being plant based for the past year, but I haven't really used it to my advantage as far as physique goes. Lately I've been starting to slip into more vegan processed foods and sweets than I'd like to admit.
I'm not overweight but I'm not as lean as I'd like to be. I rarely weigh myself, but right now, 11/08/12, I'm probably in the 155-160 range, and I'm a 5'10" female. I got nice and lean a couple summers ago at 145-148lbs, but I was still eating meat at that time.
I'm a P90X/Insanity/Asylum girl, but I'm currently doing Beachbody's new BODY BEAST! It's meant for people who really want to put on some muscle with an at-home DVD program. They market the program mainly to guys, but something about putting on some nice muscle piqued my interest. I'm going for the "Bikini" competitor look. I think if I clean up my diet, I can get pretty dang close by the end of the program (12/23/12). As of this post I'm in week 6, I believe, which is the 3rd week of the "Bulk" phase. My husband is doing the program too, and he's been struggling with keeping a clean plant-based diet too while putting on mass that isn't mainly fat.
Today is a rest day as far as the program goes, and I'm home sick so meal-planning and such has been out the window. I'll try to re-cap what I ate though:
1 scoop Chocolate Vegan Shakeology
2 TB Chia seeds
2 TB fresh ground PB
1/2 TB raw cacao powder
16oz Whole Foods veggie soup
Kale & spinach salad with raw tahini garlic dressing
16oz veggie soup
Dr. Praeger veggie burger
2 gluten-free vegan waffles
1 TB PB
1/4 of a roasted butternut squash
16oz bottle of Raw Kombucha
Looking at it all now I should have nixed the chips and probably the waffles to really clean it up.
Now it's time to get some rest so I can get back to training tomorrow...It's Bulk Chest day
