  8. A brief background - I'm a 36 yr old female, and I've been vegan since September '09. Vegetarian (eggs and dairy) since I was 17. I've trained in Krav Maga for 6 years, and hope to recieve my black belt by this time next year. So this journal does have an 'end' in that my training reflects my goal, though at the same time the journey won't stop there. Some changes I've made in the new year thus far - cutting my portion sizes and increasing the # of meals per day. Cutting down on the coffee consumption and increasing my water. This is a tough one for me, for awhile I'm afraid to say that I'd been drinking nothing but coffee....not good. I'm feeling good already with those tweaks to my diet. Training is 6 days a week, time permitting (I'm also a single mom working full-time). 2-3 days per week of Krav Maga, 2 per week of weights (upper and lower body), 1 day of cardio and 1 of pilates and stretching. This week thus far; Monday - nada Tues - Pilates 30 min Wed - Weights for upper body Thurs - KM training 60 min Friday - will be weights for lower body, perhaps some cardio (30 min) Sat - KM training 60 min Sun - rest day

  10. I've done my share of lurking around here, so I thought I should finally take the plunge and join. My name is Allison, I'm 35 years old and a single mom of two. I've been a vegetarian since I was 17, and am now making the transition to veganism. I've also recently stopped drinking coffee - that was a tough one, as I work at a Starbucks. When I'm not at work, I am either at a martial arts or hot yoga class, or the gym. I've dabbled with lifting weights for a few years now, and am really interested in the DC training that I read about on this forum. Looking forward to 'meeting' all of you.
