  2. Cellar Yeti (cool name btw) I highly doubt she was doing it for reasons outside herself. Being vegan to her must of been more about weight than about The Animals and the Earth. Though I am not her I don't know why she would stop being vegan, I can only assume it wasn't as important to her as it is to most of us who are vegan who make it work every day.
  3. Thanks for the Input guys, I have always thought that If you believe in something very strongly then in most cases it is possible to achieve you're goals.
  4. I follow Channa Serenity On facebook after seeing her profile on veganbodybuilding.com I am not a raw food vegan as she is, but I am vegan nonetheless and she was someone I looked up to and admired for that. This morning she posted this status "I am finally recovered from my illness, It's been a very interesting experience to say the least and a lot of soul searching has led me to make and change my mind several times about career, lifestyle, hobbies, etc., trying to figure out what's best for me physically, emotionally and spiritually and the root of the dis-ease to begin with. Conclusion: As much as I love animals, my body thrives bes t not on a vegan diet, and even though I thought for a period that competing was too hard on the body, it gives me a drive and lights a fire in me that makes me feel more alive. So, I am starting my 1 year prep for 2013 WBFF World Championship with Nathan Harewood, I'm looking forward to stepping on stage next year and making my Pro debut" I am not interested on not being vegan, but I wonder can someones body actually not thrive from a plant based diet? or did they make poor choices to make sure they where getting essential nutrients and enough energy. I and most people on a vegan diet have stated that they have never felt better in their life! I wonder if others truly don't benefit from a vegan lifestyle? Or if they are doing it for the wrong reasons to begin with and use being vegan as an excuse? Either way it's unfortunate but there are plenty other vegan athletes on here that are just as inspirational.
  5. Thank you heaps! I love this place to! although I have yet to go to NZ.
  6. Hey Dylan I am joining the Australian Navy. : ) I have wanted to be in the navy since I was about 13-14yrs old I live very close to 2 Navy bases So the inspiration and influence has been around me for a while. I think getting into the Navy would be perfect seeing as though I love the sea, I love my country and I love hard work. The role I am going for is centered around computers and communications so I think I'll enjoy the challenge. I really couldn't think of any career (for me anyway) that could top being in the Australian Defence Force.
  7. Well thank you very much Dylan! I am very much thinking about doing it I just have to get some made for me.... I got the Idea from Durianrider (youtube guy, If you hadn't heard of him)
  8. I wish I had little stickers saying I hope that BBQ was worth my death or Clearly your need for a nice roast dinner was worth more than my life. And Stick it on all the meat in the supermarkets
  9. Thank You very much Bruce! your generosity will be greatly appreciated I am sure of it! : )
  10. This year in August, I'm doing the World Vision 40 Hour Famine. I'm going without food for 40 hours to raise money to help kids and families who are suffering from chronic hunger. My goal is to raise $20.00 to help fight global hunger. Please help me by making a donation! $40 can feed a family of five for a month. So please donate to the 40 Hour Famine through the link below: http://40hf.com/sarahsherlock I figure most people don't like to donate so I am keeping my goal amount pretty low... But hey when you think about it you could sacrifice 4 or 5 dollars that could of been a beer or soft drink. Chocolate bar or loaf of bread. Many go without that stuff their whole lives surely you can go without it for one day?
  11. Hey!!! So I have written up an 11 week plan before I head off for recruit training. I understand that My fitness will probably double when I am in there but while I can be in control of my fitness and when and how I do it, why not! I know it will give me an advantage when I am in. Anyway Here is what my week will look like, feel free to comment criticize or whichever. I am pretty certain that I am not doing too much, I know my body can handle a good beating which I intend to give it. Weeks 1-5 Monday Rest Day, Or catch up day (if I couldn't fit in a day due to organizing my life around!) Tuesday 5-6 km Alternating Walking and Jogging Legs & Abs 1hr or more Wednesday 5-6 km Alternating Walking and Jogging Chest, Triceps & Shoulders 1hr or more Thursday Plyometric Training 15-30min Hamstring, Glutes, Calves,Abs & Back Friday 5-6 km Alternating Walking and Jogging Legs & Abs Saturday Plyometric Training 15-30min Back, Abs & Biceps Sunday 5-6 km Alternating Walking and Jogging Chest, Hamstring, Glutes, Calves & Abs Anyway So that is weeks 1-5 Ill update the other weeks after the first 5. Judge how my fitness is if I can push more then what I am hoping for!
  12. Well My practice test went great I managed to do the recommended amount of push-ups without and issues yay! So i am off in October so I have plenty of time to continue increasing my fitness level and achieve a few goals : )
  13. Hey!!! So i have just been accepted into the Navy and I need to perform a fitness test. For about 2 months I have been gradually working on my upper body strength. But I am going to recruit school a lot! sooner then I thought. so i need to improve my upper body strength a lot quicker especially when It comes to Push Ups. Does anyone have any advice? I try to do push ups every day but I find if I do them to often it starts to hurt and I can't do as many as I wanted to... I have my practice fitness test in a week!!!
  14. I completely agree, I know it has been hard for me to just ignore the negative slur especially from people who have diabetes and obesity it just blows my mind, and i never try and force something on anyone but it has gotten to the point where I dont see why I should try and explain to people the benefits of being this way because clearly they dont understand the main reason why I am a vegan. I LOVE ANIMALS! sigh but you make great points and I think eventually Ill learn to ignore the haters and Embrace the interested.
  15. I guess I do have to gather the information I need to prove my "argument" but thanks for the places to look for it, but your right there are some people who just don't get it. My partner included I have left it to him to make his own decision about it all, but no matter what i show him or tell him it doesn't phase him in the slightest. I guess Its hard to just accept some people will never care
  16. It feels as though I am a single white shirt amongst a see of black. It is getting to the point where I don't even want to tell people about the decision I have made about going vegan. I am certain everyone must know what I am talking about. Why on earth would you criticise someone for having compassion. I try to say that I am no greater then a pig, nor am I more important than a cow. What gives me or anyone else the right to eat a fellow inhabitant of the planet? If they truly believe that animals are lesser creatures then why don't the eat the homeless? or poor they would be the lesser creatures wouldn't they? or is that inhumane? we are all here to live, grow, enjoy and stay alive as long and as comfortably as we can. And then we die why should we be responsible for taking away the only thing that all of us (animals included ) are here for. Because vegans can see beyond themselves, because vegans give a little heart and compassion towards those who need it. Does that give every other weak, selfish arse-hole a reason to make up stupid insults like tree hugger,hippie, snobby or "turned into a fruitloop from all those bananas" oh and your looking pale already from the lack of protein...???? I would just like to say You are no better then the cows shit.
  17. I love your trap! My class is doing a lot of palpations you would be the perfect specimen! but really you look great!

  20. hey soooo here it is.. my vegan story ok so from about 12-16yrs old I was living mainly vegan if you could call it that, it was extremely unhealthy as i only ate a small bowl of Brussels sprouts once a day with some sweet chilli sauce on it, occasionally i would eat a bowl of porridge but that soon got thrown up... yea i was a tad sick. And i would exercise for well over 4 hours a day, then one day a week i would binge on biscuits chips or whatever then again throw it up. yea I wasn't healthy at all! and I wasn't much of a vegan or vegetarian even though i never ate meat i can never see it anything other then what it was self destructive. but see that silly little girl only gave up meat to cut out some fat it was all for weightloss!!! and that I believe is a ridiculous thing to aim for and there are more to me then what the scales tell me. now I am a vegan for the right reasons such as; -not to be responsible for an innocent creatures death -giving my body exactly what it wants and needs (yea it dose not want garbage.... surprisingly enough) -to give my life a little bit of purpose It has been a hard journey getting to this point as i had 3 years in between where I have eaten meat, dairy and other products from animals that I will be eternally sorry for. And I wont stop trying to make what I have done right. I hope I can one day make the most out of my lifestyle to help less fortunate animals... My journey starts here and my journey will continue until my heart stops beating. soo thanks for reading if you get through all that haha!
