Hello from Waterloo, Canada!

#1 Postby Sarina JW » Fri Aug 30, 2013 12:52 pm

Hello all,
I 'm Sarina from Waterloo, Canada. I am mid-30's and have been vegan for 2.5 years but recently gotten into fitness and bodybuilding. My main motivation to getting in shape is that I dislocated my back earlier this year and am determined to build a strong core to prevent a reinjury. And to lose "the last 10 pounds" from having kids!

I share my passion for healthy vegan eating and living at Earthgiven Kitchen: http://earthgivenkitchen.com/. You can find my recipes there, or can join the facebook page to get recipes in your news feed: https://www.facebook.com/Earthgivenkitchen. Any other vegan bloggers here? :)

I am also a member of the Vegan Bodybuilding and Fitness facebook group and appreciate all the great work out tips and recipes people post there.

I love connecting with other vegans around the world, especially those committed to a healthy lifestyle!

Welcome to the group here! How did you end up dislocating your back? What techniques are you doing now to strengthen it to prevent future injuries?

Thanks for the welcome!
I'm embarrassed to say that I hurt my back doing nothing more than lifting my four year old while twisting... L2 and L4 dislocated. Excruciating. Unable to walk for three days, another week hobbling with a cane until an osteopath helped it go back in alignment.
To keep my core strong I've been doing 25 minutes of full body strength exercises three times a week, including planks, twists, weights, etc.
