  1. 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 Breakfast---grapefruit/papaya 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

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

  10. I posted a pic on the facebook page under the original contest post!

  12. I have always enjoyed checking out the look whos vegan area. It gives me continued motivation to push harder in my workouts and stay on course with my nutrition http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/?page=bios I love reading the bios and it has people from all athletic backgrounds so theres someone there for everyone to look up to. I also use that area as refrence for people who think that eating plant based cannot build muscle or the protein myth etc.
  13. I agree with everything said as I have also sampled the arbonne from a friend who sells it, i thought it tasted good. Honestly if your going to buy vegan protein for the price you can get just as good if not better from other companies like vega,plant fusion,growing naturals,garden of life. I just think the arbonne is too expensive for what it is. its good to see them offer a vegan product though i was impressed that it had no artificial garbage in it thats always a bonus
