I decided to start a new section for Blogs. Not that we are short on directory options, but I thought this would be a pretty cool new section for people to use.

On the main site, I used Keegan's Korner as a weekly blog 4 years ago, well before blogs were "cool."

Now they are pretty standard, and here we are with our own blog section.

I'll update mine every few days. I view this online forum as an extended family or community for me. I share lots of personal info and I'm cool with that.

Today I'm out in Sebastopol, California. I've been here for 5 days working with the Tour d'Organics. I've been promoting Vega and Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness while down here and of course, representing OrganicAthlete. I was one of the original OrganicAthlete members back in 2003 and it's cool to be working closely with them and staying at the President's house. Bradley Saul is a Great guy!

I return home tonight and it will be nice because I've only been home for 1 day in nearly 2 weeks.

I'll get back to work, back down to business in the gym and I'll get my eat on.

Well, that's about it for now, just waiting to go to Santa Rosa and then over to the airport to fly home.

Traveling Today:

Today I got up and had lots of general work to catch up on. I've been in multiple states lately and finally arrived home last night. I got up fairly early to head to Eugene (2 hours away) to do Vega-work related stuff.

I also stopped by the University of Oregon Bookstore and they had our DVD Vegan Fitness Built Naturally displayed in the front of the store. So that was really cool.

I got to visit with my mom a bit, and then headed back to Portland.

Earlier in the day I spoke with Crystal on the phone and later at night got to speak with Potter and Daywalker. Daywalker is over at Potter's house in Virginia right now on his US tour.

Oh, and I stopped by the gym to visit with Big Ben so that was good too.

This summer has been great to see so many forum members in person! My list grows all the time and I'll be in Canada soon and then on the East Coast again so I'm sure I'll bump into more and more people.

Well, time to eat now, got to get my eat on.

Yeah, quite busy these days:

Topic of the post:

What I eat:

Nutrition Programs by Vegan Bodybuilder Robert Cheeke


Keep in mind these programs have not been approved by the FDA or any other authority on nutrition. They are designed for active vegans of all types from the serious athlete to the fitness enthusiast. The 6 meals a day plan helps keep your body in an anabolic state with a positive nitrogen balance and will keep you nourished throughout the day. Eating frequent meals will also speed up metabolism, your body's ability to burn fat.

The programs listed may incorporate more foods than you are used to eating in one day, but remember they were created by a bodybuilder :)

I love that term "Positive Nitrogen Balance".

I oughta come up with a couple of sample things like that, but maybe for people who aren't into fitness like us. I constantly get questions about "What is a good vegan breakfast?"

Topic: Keeping a Journal

davidtarrfoster is getting on me about eating and training properly again to positively represent Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness. I'm much smaller than I once was.

So today was day one for me to start keeping track of my food intake. I now have a Food Journal so each day I'll have a record of what I ate, how many grams of protein, how many calories, and the times that I ate with a description of what the foods were.

Hopefully I'll stick with it and have some cool records. I'll also try to keep a training journal and weigh myself every once in a while too.

I hope I'm back on track now. I should go sleep too.

Topic: Moving

Today I moved out most of my stuff from my SE Portland apartment. I was the subletter for the past 2 months and Tuesday I officially move in with davidtarrfoster (even though most of my stuff has been there for weeks).

I love SE Portland and will miss the area. I lived near loveliberate, andesuma, and stores like Food Fight and The Daily Grind, and resaurants like Kalga and Bay Leaf.

In NE I'll live 6 blocks from my sister, just down the street from Vegan Chef Al Chase, a few blocks away from the gym, the Alberta Co-op, Vita Cafe, Thai Noon, etc. and of course I'll live with davidtarrfoster, one of my best friends for the past 10 years.

So it should be a good move. I'll miss Mutakah, the cat I was hanging out wtih in SE at my apt.

I'm sleepy so I should go to bed soon.

I hope you enjoy your new place. At least you know you'll have a cool roommate though. :)

Is Portland that large though that you really won't see those people much more anymore? I've never been there, so I don't know how large it is.

I'll still see people. It's just that SE is the best part of the city, it is just totally awesome. I can get there in 20 minutes from where I am now, so it's not that big of a deal.

Portland isn't that big, but it growing like CRAZY. Seriously, I see new big buildings and condos popping up all over. It is becoming quite popular.

I'll still see my crew, we cool.

I would call Portland BIG, but I live in Montana. :)
The Portland metro area has more than twice the people than the entire state of Montana.
Montana is a big state.

I would like to someday move out there.
My brother lives across the river in Vancouver.
Even if I don't move there I will have to visit soon.

Topic: Busy Fall

Well, I've got another busy season. I'm planning a Vegan Holiday Festival in Portland that I hope draws over 1,000 people. It is keeping me very busy and there is a lot that goes into it. Of course all the set up, logistics, advertising, marketing, exhibits, etc. It will take place November 17th and 18th and then I think I'll relax a bit.

I planned the Vegan Vacation, then went to the Animal Rights Conference, then the Tour d'Organics, and immediately started working on the Vegan Holiday Festival.

I'm going to run out of gas soon if I keep it up. So this winter, once my busy fall season is over I think I'll just chill. Literally, since it will be quite cold.

I'll still be as active on the forum as I can, I'll just have some major projects keeping me very busy for a while.

But we'll save thousands of lives this fall with just this one event, so it will be well worth it. I'm excited about it.

Are you still possibly going to live with Brendan for a couple months, or did that fall through?
