  1. Thank you so much!!! I appreciate that a lot. I will look into the Ezekial breads. I have bought them in the past and kind of forgot about them. Again-thank you!
  2. I am looking for commerical breads that are vegan...and please don't say such and such brand insert potato bread. I want whole grain/whole wheat bread that is vegan. Does anybody know any widely produced breads that can be found outside of trader joe's or whole foods that is vegan? I'd like to know what's vegan at WF and TJ's as well, but I happen to live 2 hours from these places and only go to that city once a month. I can't just run out and buy some right now . Thus I am looking for bread that is produced on a more widespread basis that I can find at a regular grocery store. Haven't been a vegan for awhile but am going back to it-- Used to know a lot of ingredients to look out for in snacks and breads that indicate animal products but haven't checked into it for awhile cause I haven't been a vegan for a long time so I don't remember. If anybody cares to enlighten me on many of the common ingredients that indicate animal anything, I would appreciate some type of list. I realize there are probably some websites that tell these things so some links might be pertinent if anybody knows any that contains this type of info. I do have one specific questions though: I am addicted to Special K protein plus cereal. Love the taste and the fact it has 5 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein per serving. Anybody know if this is vegan? Also looking for granola bars that are vegan (not Lara bars--I can't stand them because the main ingredient in each flavor is figs and no matter the flavor they always taste like mostly figs. I am not against figs but if something is marketed as a particular flavor, it should not mostly just taste like figs. They are okay every once in awhile, but meh) Thanks in advance!!!

  5. HCPinGviini Thank you for the response! On a daily basis, I waver back and forth as to whether or not I want to gain any size so obviously, the amount I'm eating isn't too consistent either. My body fat is pretty low so I guess the reason my abs aren't showing is because they're not big enough? What do you think? Today Today and yesterday I've had the days off from working out because I worked 12 hours yesterday and I'm working 12 hours today. I will be back in the gym tomorrow morning though. Food today: 80 oz water Lunch: Amy's Non-Dairy Bean and Rice burrito (300) Snack: Hummus and Pita chips (200) Dinner: 2 servings High Protein Special K (200) snack: 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds (300?) snack: sour mambas (220)
  6. I'm going to keep track of my weight here too. September: 1. 101.6 2. 101.6 3. 100.6 4. 100.2 5. 100.6 6. 100.6 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. My Birthday!! 27. 28. 29. 30.
  7. lol katz. I didn't think of that! I still think they would be more filled out if she had just a bit more body fat.
  8. Okay so I have somewhat more concrete goals now. I've been reading various websites and I read an article that said if you want to look like, whomever it may be, you need to work out and eat like that person and eventually your body will change. So I've chosen as my goal that I want to look like Kelly Ripa minus the deflated breasts. I think her body fat must be insanely low though because even when I was 80 pounds, I still had a full B cup chest even though my body fat was only supposedly 5%. Now my body fat is more like 10-14% or so my scale says. I have an Iron Girl scale that's amazing and it includes body fat percent, total body water percent, bone mass, calories needed to maintain weight (which I think it way inaccurate--it says I need like 2300 calories a day to maintain, which is insane --maybe if I was running 20 miles a day or something), and it also rates your fitness on a scale of 1-9, 9 being the best and it also states what your fitness age is. LOL It says my fitness age is the youngest possible age, which is 12. I don't really know about that assessment either. So here are some pics of what I want to look like. I will try to update later when I am home from work (at work right now, just discovered we have wireless and are allowed to bring our laptops! woot!) She looks amazing although I also think her body fat is a little too low. Cue the somewhat saggy, deflated breasts. I can see why a lot of fitness models get breast implants if that's what happens when the body fat gets too low. With my working out, that's what I aspire to look like. I'm in love with her abs. Killer obliques she's got there. :burst: I want to see more pics! off to obsessively search for more here looking hot more and I have more, but now my mouse won't right click! damnit here's more google images
  9. Got back in the gym today after 3 days off. weight lifted back/biceps/triceps/chest/legs 450 crunches Food: meh Haven't eaten anything today.
  10. Your salad was probably only 300-400 calories depending on how many beans and tofu you had on it. Looks yummy! How far away is the competition?
  11. I took the last 2 days from working out because I haven't been feeling well. Also I will not be able to go to the gym on Saturday and Sunday because I'm picking up some extra hours at work and by the time I get off work, the gym will be closed. Unless I get up at 6 am on those days, I will not be able to make it. I just might do that. I have problems waking up in the morning because my blood pressure and heart rate get really erratic and low during the early morning so unless I feel okay those days I will not be able to go in the morning. My eating has not been so great the last few days. I've barely been eating most of the time. It seems like no matter if I eat 200 calories a day or 2000, my weight has stayed the same the last few weeks--as in, the same, down to the ounce. 101.6 pounds. I don't understand what's going on with my metabolism. Obviously, my body is really resistant to losing or gaining weight even with intense exercise. Any ideas what's going on? p.s. I miss you guys! ETA: I almost had to go to the ER the day before yesterday because my heart was racing and skipping beats. I've been having problems with it lately so I need to seriously think about easing up on the cardio.
  12. I'm so confused. You're not talking about your avatar picture, are you? That is definitely not Kate Moss.
  13. I love Oxygen magazine. I just finished their newest regular issue and found so many articles extremely helpful. I will have to check out the glutes edition because that is my least favorite part of my body. I don't plan on participating in any competitions but I certainly would love to look that way. I have anxiety issues and I can only imagine how bad they would be if I were to sign up for a competition.
