Howdy from Colorado

Just thought I'd drop in an introduce myself before I start picking minds and gathering advice.

 

I'm almost 28 and living outside Denver, CO (Castle Rock for now). I have been vegan for around 2.5 years and vegetarian for around 5. I used to be very over-weight but now days I am mostly scrawny and in need of some "toning up". I eat healthily for the most part but would like some help with developing a weight training routine and supporting diet. The major obstacle is that I have a unusual work schedule. 2pm-12:30am 4 days a week. I have struggled putting on weight in the past. I will open another thread under the appropriate section for this topic.

 

I am vegan for pretty much all the reasons. Ethical, health and environmental. I'm interested in meeting fellow vegans/vegetarians in the area and look forward to getting involved in the site. I am into bike riding, going to shows, hiking...pretty much anything that sounds like fun.

 

Regards,

Welcome to the group!

 

My little brother lives just outside of Denver and I'll be back there this spring to pick up my car where I left it at his house

 

I've traveled to 45 US States and CO is right up there as one of the finest for so many reasons.

 

I also struggled to put on weight and then figured it out and made it happen putting on 75 pounds from 120 to 195. I still experiment all the time to make more gains and to learn.

 

All the best and welcome to our team!

Hey There fellow Coloradan! I'm in ID now after 10yrs in Seattle and 3 in FL, but LOVE the Rockies and always will! Grew up all along the front range, Wellington (near Wyoming off I-25), Ft. Collins, Loveland, and Boulder. Colorado is a great place to eat veggies and get out of doors!!

I'm going vegan after being a protein addict with bodybuilding competitions for the past couple of years. I'd love to help with the work out plan if you'd like advice or info! There are a lot of great programs out there and the best one is the one you can stick with! Accountabily, a good goal, or a work-out buddy are all good tools to get and stay motivated! To your success!

Celestial-

 

Thanks, I am sure I will have plenty of questions. Right now I am trying to sort out a diet and eating schedule. I plan on going into the gym at 1AM after work. I will be getting my membership this week and want to start a routine a week from today. I plan to stay up a bit after getting home and read or watch a movie to unwind. I also don't want to go to bed immediately after eating.

 

I like Ft Collins a lot. I drive though about every other month on my way to visit friends in Laramie. Boulder is cool and I dig downtown Denver a lot. Hopefully someday I can find an equally good or better job that is closer to those areas. My job is about 9 miles to the south of Castle Rock.

 

I will be working on a full-fledged advice thread later tonight. I will drop the link here after I do.

 

Cheers

Hiya, Colorado!

 

I know your area well, used to pass through there several times a year to hike Castlewood Canyon. Ever get down there? It's gorgeous! I always wanted to see the top of Castlerock, itself. Didn't it have a giant star at one time?

 

Anyway, welcome. Have fun getting all buff.
