  1. Boston Vegan association because they have a great group going there and their comprehensive abolitionist vegan Literature is brilliant and they send me some (kg's!) to the uk free of change. How amazing, I just love groups that are just interested in educating about veganism.
  2. Had a day off yesterday,sleep has been bad the last few days,so has my stomach (I have IBS). I was feeling under the weather and although I walked the dogs (about 25mins) by the pm I was feeling very tired,my throat was sore and I just didnt feel right so I went to bed and rested. Slept well last night (the usual 3-4 wake ups but not bad) and woke up feeling initially ok but with my stomach acting off. It's got worse from there and now I feel awful,weak and am back in bed. I'm busy tomorrow now so need to be ok by then. It's very rare for me to go back to bed but when you feel ill sometimes I guess you need extra rest. Hopefully a bit of rest and i'll be fine later. If not I guess i'll take time off from my workout today,annoying buy no point pushing yourself when you're ill.
  3. Ran out of time to properly update yesterday,here's my workout from yesterday. My sleep's a bit off at the moment,i'm waking up early and feeling quite tired. Weights Workout C and Abs The exercises next to each other are supersetted e.g I do one set of back squats then one set of Squat arnold press. The weights are all matching personal bests or one kg lighter. Warm up: Bicycle (no arms just legs)-2mins single and double leg extentions with an exercise ball - 10 each leg single and 10 total for double weight crosses (sat upright take weight from bottom left to top right and vice versa) on exercise ball - 10 each side push up position then opposite legs out x 10 front exercise ball hip extentions x10 mountain jumpers x 10 breakdancers x 10 Forgot to skip-never mind Main: L (legs out at 90*) Handlebar chin ups-8+7+5 Back Squats 34kg-10+8+6 Squat Arnold Press 12kg 9+8+6 Barbell Row( PB-went up 2kg) 44.6kg-8+6+6 2 Arm Swings (PB) 32kg-8+6+6 Overhead Squats (PB) 28kg- 9+8+7 1 Arm Snatch- 20kg-8+7+6 - Once I get to 20kg's with 1 arm snatch it seems to heavy but 19kg's seems fine!? Stairs with 13.3kg's on back x 18 Abs: Abs- all 30: Decline leg thrusts,scissors,bicycles,reverse crunches,abs wheels and cross crunches.
  4. Yesterday was a day off although I did bike 10mins down hill then 10mins into my uphill portion my chain came off! So I walked it home for another 15 mins.Also took the dogs for a 25min walk. Is so cold here at the moment so better go for my walk now before it gets dark (and colder),done my workout already,will record later.
  5. I enjoyed feeling that people were there for me,rooting for me to succeed. It made me complete my workouts when all I really wanted to do was watch tv or rest because I didnt want to let them down,to let myself down. I got injured at the start of the month and instead of accepting I couldnt do my workout schedule the desire to participate made me find alternatives so that I could fill in what I had achieved. So thank you so much for pushing me to do more than I thought I could.
  6. Workout a and abs and a 20minute walk with the dogs. Workout A: Warm up: Bicycle (no arms just legs)-2mins single and double leg extentions with an exercise ball - 10 each leg single and 10 total for double weight crosses (sat upright take weight from bottom left to top right and vice versa) on exercise ball - 10 each side push up position then opposite legs out x 10 front exercise ball hip extentions x10 mountain jumpers x 10 breakdancers x 10 Skipping 1 min medium speed 1 min fast speed Main: L Chin ups( when legs are out at 90*-hard!)-9+10+8 Bent deadlifts (PB) 60.6kg-9+8+6 (struggled with grip initially but tried doing alternate grips for 2nd and 3rd set and it was brilliant!) Squat press 13kg (per dumbell)-10+7+5 Push up decline with 6.3 kg on back-14+12+10 Renegade rows 19kg(PB)-10+8+6 1 arm swing(PB) 24kg-8+7+6 Chest press 28kg -4+4+3 Run up and down stairs with 13.9 kg on back x 16 Abs: Incline scissors- 30+30+30 incline reverse crunches- 15+13+12 incline straight leg pulses,push down on-20+20+20 Of course the L chin ups are abs too Good workout
  7. Rest day today,shoulders sore, I think it's the dips, I have to do dips on a bench as that's the only equiptment I have and I feel my shoulders are quite high at the time. I think I may swap the dips for another tricept exercise next week and will have a very hot shower and focus the water on my shoulders later. Went for a walk with the dogs after dog training (1.5 hours outside in the cold,hate it!) was 1 hour 06 minutes at medium fast pace. Was lovely except we came accross some hunters and can hear the shots in fields around the walks, very depressing. Been a good exercise week,feeling stronger and fitter each day. I'm gaining muscle and getting lots of personal bests. I've done really well food wise this week having a proper dinner each night and making sure my calorie count is up to gain muscle. Having an organic vegetable box coming each week is great as you have to cook to use it up and its been making me get really creative. Next weeks plan: Monday-Workout A and abs Tuesday-rest - biking to a appointment Wednesday- Workout B and abs Thursday-Sprint/tennis Friday-Rest Saturday-Workout C and abs Sunday-Rest/long walk after dog training
  8. Workout B and Abs Warm up: Bicycle (no arms just legs)-2mins single and double leg extentions with an exercise ball - 10 each leg single and 10 total for double weight crosses (sat upright take weight from bottom left to top right and vice versa) on exercise ball - 10 each side push up position then opposite legs out x 10 front exercise ball hip extentions x10 mountain jumpers x 10 breakdancers x 10 Skipping 1 min medium speed 1 min fast speed Main: Front Squats (PB) 39.1kg-1)+7+6 1 arm row (PB)27kg-8+7+7 Clean and press-31kg-10+8+6 Dips (PB) (20kg on legs)- 24+23+22 Back lunges 22kg 10+8+6 High Pull (PB)-44.6 9+8+6 Straight leg deadlift (PB) 61.6-10+8+6 For the high pull I accidentally added 3 kg's more than last time! Still did good reps which is amazing really!

  9. Yesterday I did 1.5 hours of interval training, was good fun but also heart pumping stuff. Today was a scheduled day off although I was active. I first took the dogs for a 20minute walk then walked Into town and to get shopping (30mins) then I wasn't ready for lunch so went for a 45 minute medium fast walk. After lunch we went bowling then walked home ( 45mins). So total 2 hours 30mins of walking,not bad for a day of rest.
  10. Did workout A and abs today. Short walk with the dogs,about 15mins. Workout A: Warm up: Bicycle (no arms just legs)-2mins single and double leg extentions with an exercise ball - 10 each leg single and 10 total for double weight crosses (sat upright take weight from bottom left to top right and vice versa) on exercise ball - 10 each side push up position then opposite legs out x 10 front exercise ball hip extentions x10 mountain jumpers x 10 breakdancers x 10 Skipping 1 min medium speed 1 min fast speed Main: Chin ups (with 3.8kg on back)-15+15+15 Bent deadlifts [email protected] Squat press 13kg (per dumbell)-9+6+6 Push up decline with 6.3 kg on back-10+10+10 Renegade rows 18kg-10+8+7 1 arm swing 23kg-10+8+7 Chest press 28kg -4+2+3 Run up and down stairs with 13.9 kg on back x 12 Abs: Incline scissors- 10+10+10 incline reverse crunches- 10+10+10 incline straight leg pulses,push down on-10+10+10 decline crunches with 2.5kg weight behind weight 10+10+10
  11. Scheduled Rest day today,feeling fairly good,slightly heavy legs and tender arms (inside of elbows) but generally feeling good. Went for a walk with the dogs,50 minutes at medium fast pace. Have done really well regards eating dinner and an overall good diet. Eaten a proper dinner everynight bar 2 since the 1st so really good.
  12. Bike- 25mins total include 10mins of one hell of a hill Dog walk - 20mins Weights Workout C and Abs The exercises next to each other are supersetted e.g I do one set of back squats then one set of Squat arnold press. The weights are all matching personal bests or one kg lighter. Warm up: Bicycle (no arms just legs)-2mins single and double leg extentions with an exercise ball - 10 each leg single and 10 total for double weight crosses (sat upright take weight from bottom left to top right and vice versa) on exercise ball - 10 each side push up position then opposite legs out x 10 front exercise ball hip extentions x10 mountain jumpers x 10 breakdancers x 10 Skipping 1 min medium speed 1 min fast speed Main: Handlebar chin ups-14+10+8 Back Squats 33kg-12+10+8 Squat Arnold Press 12kg 9+8+6 Barbell Roe 40.6kg-10+8+6 2 Arm Swings (PB) 31kg-10+8+6 Overhead Squats (PB) 26kg- 9+8+6 1 Arm Snatch- 19kg-10+8+6 Abs: Abs- all 30: Decline leg thrusts,scissors,bicycles,reverse crunches,abs wheels and cross crunches. 15 each side lye on side and raise legs together to arms oblique exercise.
  13. Not feeling good today. Couldn't workout,will have to find time tomorrow. Frustrated. Sometimes things don't go the way you want them to be the most important thing is to learn what you can when things dont go your way and accept when you can do anything! Plan for the next week: Monday-Workout C and abs Tuesday-Rest (longer walk with dogs) Wednesday- Workout A and Abs Thursday- Sprints/tennis/dvd Friday-Rest (going bowling and for Japanese food for 4th anniversary of day my hubby and I first met) Saturday- Workout B and abs Sunday-Rest
  14. Had a scheduled day off yesterday, just took the dogs for a 20min walk. The cake went down very well and I have more requests for the recipe . My sleep is absolutely attrocious at the moment with this medication,last night I had maybe 5 hours of very restless sleep, I feel awful, my muscles hurt and my recovery between workout sessions is slow. It's so frustrating but shows how important good sleep is. Planned to workout today but i'm out this evening and have been busy all day, to do a weights workout now would wipe me out for tonight and I need to walk there and back (about 25mins each way including a hill on the way back) and then stand for a few hours (for an Adam Ant concert). Will do it tomorrow instead, I am busy but I can fit it in the afternoon, this also fits in with next week as i'm busy Monday doing some vegan outreach .
  15. Went sprinting today,meant to do abs too but forgot as was feeling weak and Knackered after running as hadn't eaten in a long time (bar a few dates and almonds before running). Times were slower than usual but grass was onger and thus softer and legs heavy from yesterday.Overall time was 19.45 mins, sprinted,rested (either walk or stop) to catch my breath then sprint again. 6x 50m 5x 75m 5x 100m Also a 20 minute fast walk each way, hill on the way back. So tired now. Just finished making my mother in law a vegan chocolate raspberry cake for her birthday tomorrow,wanted it to be perfect,not the best icing in the world but first time using fondant icing. Made her the same recipe but as cupcakes to take to work and the chief where she works wants the recipe which is brilliant ad now he can make vegan cake! So annoying to not be able to eat it due to wheat allergy...maybe I should make wheat free cupcakes. Rambling! Sorry,must sleep now
