  1. One coffee a day (Kicking Horse). Aside from that, the occasional Starbucks!
  2. Have any Canadians had any luck ordering from this website? I know it says they Ship to Canada, but I am not sure if it is still worth it once Shipping+handling+duty have been factored in? If not, any other recommendations? I have been using Vega for years, and while I LOVE it, my bank account does not.. I just bought a house / got engaged and trying to save a few bucks. Thanks in advance!
  3. This is awesome, congrats! I was the exact same way with Wide Grip Pullups where I couldn't even pull myself up once, and can now do 7-10 reps for multiple sets. It really is a great feeling, keep it up!
  4. As of two weeks ago I hit155lbs x 2. I have had 3-4 chest days since then so I am hoping that I will be able to surpass my body weight (160) this week!
  5. Great video! (aside from the salmon and cheese!) I can already pick out some errors in my lift just from watching this video, thanks!
  6. Well I'm not hitting the gym for another 2 hours, but I decided to pound out 66. for the cause! and for my OCD... +66 = 82,500
  7. I love Robert's book and am always finding myself going back to it for reference points. A very good book packed full of goodness.
  8. Well, up until this week I was hitting each body part once a week, with a day of cardio in there. Chest , Back , Legs , Shoulders , Arms, Cardio+Core Now, I am trying a 3 day split so I can hit each body part twice a week M:Chest/back T:Shoulders/Legs W: Arms Rinse and Repeat twice a week, with abs and core exercises in there. So far so good, I am sore every day but by the time it comes to repeat the cycle, that body part is itchin for some pump.
  9. Here it is, the one you've all been waiting for!!
  10. Hey All, this is my first progress photo. I was working out in the early spring/summer, but due to hockey injuries / buying a house , I gave it up. I have been back in the gym ( 6 days a week ) since November 15th, and I have FULL intentions to keep this going until I am too old or brittle to be there anymore. I am finding a solace in the gym. A kind of peace that I never knew could exist by simply moving heavy objects around... These might have been after a couple of weeks in the gym. (around November 15th,2012) http://i1055.photobucket.com/albums/s509/bruinsev/IMG_0369_zps0e5d6c35.jpg And Current! (First week of January, 2013) http://i1055.photobucket.com/albums/s509/bruinsev/2_zps7eb1c0d1.jpg http://i1055.photobucket.com/albums/s509/bruinsev/A74977BE-9E8A-4987-BC4D-0FD16F08B5FC-1476-00000054B0B0DD66_zpsf44c2991.jpg http://i1055.photobucket.com/albums/s509/bruinsev/230DB4D4-6EA7-4AD2-83F3-71ABF6557F96-1476-00000054A228CD5F_zpsad251223.jpg I've got a LONG way to go, but I am loving every second of it.
  11. Thanks all! Yeah I will be working on a journal as well!
  12. Ps I am at work and on my phone and sort of rambling, so I apologize to anyone that actually had to put up with that novel I typed out. I USUALLY make sense with what I am trying to say.
  13. Hey all, the name's Evan ! I live just outside Niagara Falls, Ontario! I am 26 years old and have been vegan for the past 5 years and vegetarian for 3 Years before that. I am a long time reader and a new poster to these parts. I feel that I may be able to offer some insight, personal stories, advice, etc and am excited to join in this active/amazing community. I remember meeting Robert at farm sanctuary hoe down a few years ago and after reading his book I have been extremely inspired to do more with myself. However, life got in the way. School, work, buying a house, hockey and hockey injuries kept me from fully committing. Since middle November I have been in the gym 6 days a week and loving every second of it. I am literally getting compliments multiple times a day about my size I am putting on which is getting me EVEN MORE inspired. I will be starting a personal thread in the before/after forums this evening as well. Look forward to conversing with you all!!
  14. USA and their millions of flavors of everything!
  15. I work In IT for the government ! Pretty sweet gig!
  16. Hey Robert, I already have your book but if you had some excess merch and want to throw me together a package, I will buy one off you. I can never have too much Vega! Let me know how much you want for a package!
  17. Oh ya, 25 year old male from Niagara, Canada!
  18. Long time vegan/AR activist, and a long time reader of this board I finally feel ready to start this commitment. I have read Robert's book and love every page of it. I have spent hundreds of hours on this forum/website and finally feel like I have enough information to contribute to this site and start my development! Look forward to growing with all of you!
