  1. Dylan, I love running outside and I hate the treadmill compared to it but I really like running in general.. I almost fell off the damn thing the first two times I used it. I go back and forth.. I do a half hour on the treadmill an a half hour on the elliptical, which is a nice change of pace and easier on my knees. I usually run for an hour and 15 minutes outside when I can but I am saving that for better weather. As of today.. I say elliptical, tomorrow treadmill. Sometimes I throw in the stationary bike too which I don't mind so much when the treadmill is not in the books for the day. I hope this helped!!
  2. It has been a little over 10 years now and I would not have it any other way. Growing up with a huge family we ate a lot of vegetables, pastas and not so much meat. At very young ages 2 of my sisters and I stopped eating meat because we just did not prefer it. My sisters are vegetarian but I took the plunge and went vegan at 17 after I cracked an egg and saw something that resembled an eye and blood (I will never forget). My taste buds have changed for the better. I don't use or cook with salt anymore. I lost a lot of uneccesary weigh and joint pain and get to cook everyday!! It has kept me on track more so now than ever in the health department. I have not been this weight since 5th grade and have never been a single number in clothing size as an adult. I have energy, great skin and I feel 1,000x happier and I am so grateful for that.
  3. Wos the dip machine turned my arms into jelly!! I hope clients can do without the glamour blowdrys today!!
  4. Yesterday I was so busy at work but snuck in 4 miles. No time to update yesterday. Today I worked on my arms, back and chest. 30 minutes on the elliptical and 30 on the bike. This work schedule is destroying me!! I need more time in a day.. Or a gym that is 24 hours..
  5. See the picture above does help. It really does look a lot nicer:) I should do a little flip book of before and after!!
  6. That does help!! Thank you. I should do a little more research.
  7. I am definitely seeing results very fast but it is so hard to see my weight stay the same with all the work I am doing. I am trying to get used to the known fact that muscle weighs more than fat by looking at my faint 4 pack starting to show
  8. My toughest work out for 2012 will be tomorrow. I am sore as hell but have been seeing results already. Abs.. You have had your fill.. Tomorrow brings arms and back . Wish me luck!!
  9. Today was 30 minutes on the treadmill at 5.6-6.0 30 minutes on the stationary bike at 15-17mph and 30 minutes 3 miles on the elliptical. Still learning the machines. Did 2 an machines at 10-10-15 and did two leg machines at 10-10-15.
  10. I am a runner and I usually run very early in the morning so I do not eat before. Now I feel like at the gym I am doin alot more than running at my own pace and need some fuel. What's good to eat before a work out??
  11. I have been vegan for 10 years now. Vegetarian for 5 before that. I was very overweight most of my childhood. Going vegan took me from 250 lbs to 200lbs at age 17 very quickly. I was always the girl who made fun of people for working out and dieting until about two years ago I developed irregular heart beats and tendinitis in my knee. I tricked myself into thinking I was healthy because I was vegan. I was a "junkfoodatarian" for so long. I am a hairstylist out of Boston and being out of shape, stress, overeating and being a workaholic were taking over my body at 27!! I decided to cut down on portion sizes (and chinese takeout 4 times a week, my weakness)and to start running. From February last year I have lost over 50 pounds and have no more heart palpitations, tendinitis is gone and I look and feel better than I ever have. I tell people I am back to the weight I was in 5th grade.. They think I am joking. My goal now is to get my body stronger and more fit so I can keep myself healthy. My line if work really takes a toll on the body. I wouldn't mind showing off some muscle either:)
  12. I would say so far it would have to be the massaged kale avocado salad I can not stop eating!! I also made a vegan version of chickpea saag 100% from scratch!! So amazing.
