  1. Woah, no way! We've got Wegman's and two health/natural foodways type places but this would be so cool! Way to go!
  2. It was pretty warm out today. A very physical day, getting ready for our class' midterms next week and finishing up loss control. I was right about it being arms intense.. My PT went on vacation today and because midterms are in a week (and will be a long day at that), I may be taking it a little easy this week. Will work out at the station and possibly with a guy from class.
  3. She was diagnosed as a young teen but had been experiencing symptoms for some years before. Next month she's having surgery on her elbow. Thank you! She's a pretty tough cookie and obviously you are too. Good luck in your training!
  4. I let my trainer know that this weekend's classes would be upper body intensive, so he adjusted our little routine accordingly. Incline BP - 15X45, 12X55, 10X60, 8X65 Bench Press - 15x45, 12x50, 10x55, 8x60 D Handle Lat Pulldowns - 15x29, 12x41, 10x53, 8x60 Seated Cable Row - 15x29, 12x41, 10x53, 8x60 Military Press - 15z35, 12x35, 12x35, 12x35 Upright Row - 15x20, 12x25, 10x30, 8x35 132lbs. today.
  5. Hahaha I had the beach access in mind, yeah. The EMT requirement seems pretty standard now, at least in our area. Thanks decbolton!
  6. Thank you!! I'm training all the way up in Prince William County but I live about 40min south of there. That must be a beautiful area to work in! How long have you been there?

  8. Your food pics always look great, and I would love to work out in that gym!

  10. It is really cool that you are continuing to lift and exercise despite some of your health problems. My sister has had RA for over 20 years and was recently diagnosed with Lupus, and I can only imagine the strength you must summon some days to hit the gym and lift weights.
  11. IronSmith, good luck dealing with this new doctor! I hope you are able to find something that will make you feel better.

Tomorrow's class will be very physically demanding so I didn't want to push myself too much or set myself up for injury. Bench Press - 15x45, 12x50, 10x55, 8x60 Inc BP - 15X45, 12X50, 10X55, 8X60 Cleans - 10x45, 10x45, 10x45 D Handle Lat Pulldown - 15x29, 12x41, 10x48, 8x60 Seated Cable Row - 15x29, 12x41, 10x53, 8x65 Military Press - 15x35, 15x35, 15x35 Yesterday my mom and I went into DC and had so much delicious food. I planned on taking more pictures of it to share here, but.. that didn't happen. I had a vegan grilled cheese with tempeh bacon and tomato plus soy chixin nuggets w/ BBQ sauce (pictured below). Later for dinner we ate at a falafel place with a toppings bar and fries. I also picked up a couple of desserts. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v12/mondaysdone/Photo07191631.jpg
  16. I forgot my training log again.. We did a full body workout as I am busy with class this week. We were outside all last night and will be doing more of the same tomorrow and this weekend. Advancing and pulling hose into a structure. Cardio: 30 min. on the treadmill, 8%, 3.3 mph.
  17. Thanks, Dylan! I can't wait to graduate in a few months.
  18. When are you eating your pre-workout meal?
  19. No gym for me this weekend because I had class today and have class tomorrow. Lots of lifting, pulling, dragging hose, and sweating out in the heat (and we weren't even in gear!). My only job right now is drinking water.
  20. It was a 3lb. increase every month so I was happy to see my hard work paying off, not upset by it. I'm still very lean but the weight gain helps me in other aspects of my life. I don't really track what I eat, but I eat multiple, smaller meals like many in this forum and try to get around 2,000cal. I eat breakfast (usually Ezekiel toast with pb), a pre-workout snack depending on when I'm getting to the gym, a post-WO snack/smoothie (Clif Builder bar), and follow that with two more meals and healthy snacking. I eat a lot of rice and beans and love bananas.
  21. Welcome Keith! I'm only a beginner myself when it comes to lifting weights, but if you search this forum there's plenty of information that will help you out. One program I know of that you may want to check out is Starting Strength. Many of the members here share what they're eating on their work out days in their training logs, and you can get more ideas from blogs like FatFreeVegan.
  22. Bench Press - 15x45, 12x50, 10x55, 8x60 Inc BP - 15X45, 12X50, 10X55, 8X60 Cleans - 15x45, 10x55, 10x55, 10x55 D Handle Lat Pulldown - 15x29, 12x41, 10x53, 8x60 Seated Cable Row - 15x29, 12x41, 10x53, 10x60 Military Press - 15x35, 12x40, 12x40, 12x40 Upright Rows - 15x15, 12x25, 10x35, 8x40 20 min on the treadmill at a 7% incline at 3mph.
  23. I actually ordered the tank top last week but will be exchanging hopefully because it's a little too small (which is kinda cool)!
  24. More lecture tonight for class. No weight lifting today. I entertained the dog on our walk by incorporating some tabata sprints.
