I got a gander at what my competitors will look like. :shock:

I better get my butt in gear! Or they're gonna tear this little vegan gal a new one.

I'm all about getting experience this first year, but I would like to look like I ACTUALLY belong there.

Today:
coffee
banana
protein shake
spinach salad w/ onions, carrots, celery, baby tomatoes, and olive oil
water, water, water all day (feels like I am drowning)

Planned:
Another Drop Set routine, will post results in a couple hours when I'm done as I have it at the house.

Protein shake w/flax oil
Raw stuffed portabella

My calories vary from day to day. Right now I am undoing the damage done by not being able to work out when my toe was broken. That being said even on a "normal maintaining" day I take in much less calories then many people my size. I am blessed or cursed with a very slow metabilism. It doesn't take much for me to be able to feed my body and have energy throughout the day. My weight stays steady between 125-130 depending on how much water weight I am carrying at the time. I've not had problems dropping to low (which would mean risk of muscle loss). I wouldn't recommend it for everyone, everyone is different. The main thing is being sure I have energy, do not experience muscle loss, get enough nutrients from my food, and do not get hungry.

progress pic my daughter took this morning:
Not much coffee, not quite awake and hair just swept back. But, it'll do.

My shoulders and back are coming along nicely, and muscles are much more solid then before. I am quite happy so far, and look forward to further progress.

As I thought the meeting ran too late yesterday. I didn't get home until 9 so decided to make it my Rest Day for the week. A bit bummed as I was looking forward to the session. :(

Today's food:
coffee
protein shake w/oats, banana
potato, water
protein shake
chili (onion, garlic, kidney beans, tomatoes, kale, tomato sauce, soy protein ground, spices), water

Planned
protein pudding w/sprinkling of walnuts, water

I feel simply awful! I was fine this morning and about 11AM it felt like a migraine coming on. I have been fighting it with meds all day to keep it at bay but now I can't get warm, I'm starting to ache and it's getting worse. I suspect it may not be a migraine after all, :(

Today:
coffee
Meal 1:Banana protein shake w/oats, banana, water
Meal 2: 2 Amy's burgers, salad (mixed greens, spinach, celery, mushroom, & olive oil), water
Meal 3: Vanilla Pineapple Protein Shake (vanilla protein powder, w/organic pineapple blended in)

30 min weak cardio session -headache barely at bay at the time, but I was able to keep my head in an upright position, so thought I would push a workout in.
Abs -got it done, laying on the floor seemed to help my head

Meal 4: Choc Protein Shake

Planned:
Meal 5: tofu stir fry if I am up to it. Forcing the shake now, I really don't want food.

& a soak in a warm tub to try to get warm. :(
