  1. After re reading what I just wrote, that post is probably more rhetorical than anything, but am open to insight if you or anyone else has any!
  2. Sweet dude, thanks a lot. I know Vega Recovery has a lot of the good stuff in there but I try to limit myself to one of those every other day or after super intense workouts. Who can actually afford to drink one or two Vega recovery drinks a day?!!? My main source of protein shake is pretty much whatever the cheapest vegan protein is at the store I am at that day, and sometimes there really isn't much in them nutritionally. I guess my main question is whether it actually works? Can our body actually absorb what is in these drinks? If so, it might be better off to take it anyways for days that I might be lacking specific Amino's ( similar to a multivitaming ) ?
  3. Thank you very much... For the record im currently 3 months in. It gets easier and easier every day.
  4. Misery Signals anyone?! New album comes out in 4 weeks, it's been so long! I feel like I'm a kid waiting for Christmas!
  5. That's awesome dude, welcome to the forums and congrats on your life changes. Keep it up, you won't regret it!
  6. And do you notice a difference? Have you tried a couple weeks on and off to see if there is any change? With gym 5 times a week, hockey twice a week and soccer once a week, I am noticing slower recovery times than usual. The thing is that all research I have done seems to be split down the middle as to whether it works or is just complete garbage.
  7. I thought about trying it, but the risks I have read about bacteria getting in, and the immaculate process needed to keep in sterile kind of scared me off. I'll stick to my (4 bucks a bottle) store bought stuff for now.
  8. Ahh this sounds all so familiar. I tend to sacrifice my body in hockey, leaving me battered and broken quite often. As a 27 year old, my body just doesn't heal as quick as it used to. I have been recovering from bruised ribs for the past month, making it extremely difficult in the gym.

  10. Thanks all! I like to think I have made a lot of progress even since those most recent pictures. A hockey injury a month ago kept me from going hard in the gym, but at ~90% recovered I have been back and going strong. Will (ACTUALLY) post some updated pics in the next day or so.
  11. Amazing dude! Also, where did you get that shirt? Looks like the Gorilla Biscuits dude, but would love to get my hands on one of these.
  12. My knees and left shoulder are a mess from a lifetime of skateboarding / hockey . My lower stomach is the only area on my body that has fat, and I can't get rid of it!
  13. I couldn't differentiate between my dog and the steak my parents were cooking me for dinner. That, coupled with a little video called "meet your meat", was enough for me. I was 18 at the time, 27 now. 100% for the animals.

  15. I log in every day hoping to see a nice shiny title by my name but no luck! If this was MY forum, I would make animal rights titles, and could come up with a list, but I assume thts not the goal seeing as a lot of people aren't vegan for animal rights..
  16. Welcome to the forums! You aren't different from many of us who started out really small and feeling weak. You came to the right place!!

    Welcome to the best online vegan community Jennifer !
  18. This is titled "Where will you be when the acid kicks in" http://i.imgur.com/dBbTo5S.gif
  19. My buddy got called into work, so I didn't have anyone to take pictures at the gym . Hopefully can get some good ones tomorrow morning POST Back + Bi workout
  20. Do you know the carb/protein ratio of this drink? How many calories usually? I use soy milk in my drinks for the additional calories.
  21. Welcome Jamie, I look forward to reading your log!
  22. I was lucky enough to have a friend show me the ropes, but you are right, don't risk it or rush it. I'm not sure how friendly the members of your gym are, but most people at my gym are pretty open to helping each other out with form/technique! Also, start LIGHT! Don't be embarrassed and risk injury!
  23. Lat pulldowns, Declines on the pullup bar, arm exercises, and just overall doing pullups! Welcome to the forums!
