Training has been great the past few months. Since last year at this time I have dropped 12lbs and 3% body fat.

Things started happening when I incorporated way more raw foods in my diet around January. I did a lot of raw stuff before but I really wanted to try 100% so I'm feeling good and my workouts are fantastic. Strength has been amazing and Im lifting more than lest year at this time as well.

Solid week of training this week. Today I worked on Biceps/Triceps, My off day has been falling on Fridays lately so I was very fresh today.

wow I have not posted in awhile!

Still powering on plant strong though!

workuts are good food is good. I am the leanest I have ever been so im pumped about that and i am getting stronger. Breakthrough yesterday on chest day. I was able to flat bench the 40lb dumbells for 3 sets of 11 reps after being stuck at 8-9 every week. I also did a set of the flat bench with a reverse grip for 10 reps. small things like this keep me going just when I think I have hit a wall. I think that keeping up my regimen of getting at least 100 pushups a dy has really helped my upper body all around.

still eating prob 80% raw foods, doing a bit of cooked quinoa,sweet potatoes and steamed vegetables in the evenings since its about 15 degreees here daily. Still doing massive amounts of fruits and greens everyday. We go through so much produce its crazy I cant wait until summer when we can grow our own and not rely so much on buying everything. Even the local co op is not exactly cheap. its all organic and great but not always the best deals.

todays food


smoothie with orange/carrot juice/ginger 2 clementines

Postworkout-growing naturals pea protein/2 bananas/mango/almond milk

Lunch- Quinoa sweet potato bowl with giant salad

snack- green smoothie with apples/kiwi/celery/ginger

Dinner-steamed beets/broccoli with giant mixed greens salad. salsa and nutritional yeast on top

workout---cycling on indoor trainer, rowing machine and 1 HR circuit full body workout.

today is a conditioning day tomorrow is back and shoulders
