whooo, squats training definitely helps in the half pipe, that was definitely noticeable.

Working out in general is definitely got me feeling great and confident. Ever since a recent tough break up I've been having great luck meeting cool and attractive women.

I need some bigger dumb-bells for the house, I out grew these, that makes me very happy.

New Meal: Zucchini, sweet peppers, veg cheese over temphe mmmmm.

Really kicking my butt with crawls.

Made a new dish of edamame, chickpeas, corn, sweet peppers, and sriracha sauce. Mmmm.

Really happy for you buddy, hard to find a woman that fits both criteria. Sounds like you have a good little recipe for success :roll:

Thanks dude. Life has been good. Its crazy when you remove negativity from your life how many good things start to happen.

PS Vegan Black truffle mayonnaise is the best thing on the planet.

I worked the nyc vegetarian festival last weekend. Great time, met some wonderful people. I would recommend Upton's Naturals seitan too, as long as you dont have a wheat allergy the stuff is great, tastes good, good flavors, good ingredients as long as you can do wheat.

I need to get a new gym membership, these at home workouts aren't doing the trick im getting smaller.

Soccer is going well though. We just beat the 1st place undeafeated team yesterday so we head into the playoffs next week ranked 3rd!

Glad to see you're on the mend emotionally.

Just spotted you're in Brooklyn. I'll be travelling there in December for my honeymoon, looking for vegan eat, craft beer treats and if I'm feeling up for it perhaps a couple of visits to a crossfit box there. Any recommendations?

Wait! You're going to Brooklyn for your honeymoon? And you're going to do crossfit during your honeymoon? You must have married the coolest person ever!

You should go to Dirt Candy and to Champs for dinner. You should go to Cinnamon snail for lunch and get pastries from them as well, its a truck but its better than most restaurants in my opinion.
For craft beer... hmm that is one thing I miss a lot about not being on the west coast. check out a bar called Pine Box Rock Shop. They always have a great selection of beers on draft, if they have the kentucky bourbon ale you must get it, they also have vegan empanadas that are good, and there is lots of times a cool event happening in the back of the bar.
Also you can look up vegan drinks meetup if you two are wanting to be social and meet people. Once a month its at a different bar, always good food, drinks and people.

For late night eats Hanna foods is a health food store with a couple of locations that makes the best sandwhiches. Vik's pizza makes a good variety of vegan pizza by the slice.

Wow, that's an amazing choice already. Thanks. you probably just listed more vegan places in Brooklyn than there is in the entire of Wales.

To be perfectly honest I doubt I'll go to the crossfit box to do more than just buy a t-shirt, but who knows. It depends how good the beer is ;)

Thanks for the advice, I'm not married yet, but yes she is pretty damn cool. If vegan drinks has a meet while we're there we may well go.

Being around more vegheads makes it easier not to cheat. I like going to eat with a group of 4 and we all pass around our plates family style so everyone gets to try everything.

Great day snowboarding in Jersey Sunday. Getting my legs ready for Colorado next week, can't wait!

Tuesday (tomorrow) is round 1 of the playoffs for my soccer team, we are 4th and play vs 5th in the 1st round. Should be a tough match.
Unfortunately, I can't complain, if we win I will miss the semi's and the finals while I'm in CO snowboarding.

Just household arms and abs today.

Wednesday wine bar date, Italian style, hopefully they have some items without cheese or that they can make without it.

I havent been journaling or in the gym.... Been getting serious workouts in bed with a new lady which I can't complain about, great for the core/abs. Been using dumb bells at home as well as weightless exercises.

Started new outdoor soccer season. So far 2 games in we are 1 win and 1 tie. Not a bad start.

So much good food can be made vegan if you ask right at restaurants. Dont ask for vegan. Tell them specifically can you make this dish without cheese or butter. NP.
Greek place with esl language barrier however a little tricky....

Found a NY beer called Kuka banana nut brown that is delicious and brewed with maca!

Anyone need some Vega protein powder I have some extra I'll sell you and ship ya for cheap?

Discovered a vegan sorbet, dont remember the name but it is damn expensive $9 a pint but definitely worth it. My date and I ate it all during a 15 minute walk.... Its logo is a unicorn that has an ice cream cone for a horn, if you see it its worth trying. The flavor we got was chai coconut macaroon.

Tomorrow is hump day but im going to make it a shoulders, back and chest day.

Feeling good. Blown away by how much more I work my whole body when doing pushups holding dumb bells than without.

Starving, I need to eat more, like lots more.

Nuts and seeds, I have had a lot less of both in my life lately, I gotta get back to having them on hand.

Getting my thrusts on as well as planks.

Going to check out hot yoga tomorrow.

DC/Baltimore road trip was epic. I would definitely recommend Smoke & Barrel in DC if you visit. They have delicious vegan bbq ribs and vegan ice cream and sweet potato doughnuts. Their sweet potato fries were amazing as well.

Does anyone incorporate fitness into sex? Plants, pushups, crunches, I feel like yoga and kamasutra would go hand in hand.

I made 2 different vegan sloppy joes in a meat vs veg cook off. It kind of ended in a draw but I won over some meat eaters taste buds so I consider it a win.

Soccer is going well we are first place in my outdoor league 3 wins and 1 tie so far this season.

Its a squats day followed by veg lasagna followed by Kevin Pearce movie premiere night!
