  1. Just read through the last few pages, keep it up man, looks like ya got into a pretty sweet rhythm at the mo! I eat quite similar to ya, I actually look forward to my bowl of oats in the morning, so gooood with almond milk!
  2. Mate, hope all is well! If ya get a chance, go have a word in Riches ear http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/BU1304/S00042/richie-mccaw-visits-fonterras-sri-lanka-operations.htm
  3. Rows for me, braced ones lying down on a bench or cable rows seem to hit the mid back quite nicely. Yep, that protein is tasty! Cheers, I think I will go with cable rows, couldn't find a place to do cable rows originally until I had already changed!!! I actually would be happy drinking Vega all day, the budget wont allow that tho haha. Cheers Ross, I changed the title the other day, maybe thats why US is awesome! Make it happen! Today was a open membership day or something at the gym so it was a mad house! Bench Press: bar + 10 x 8, bar + 20 x 8, bar + 30 x 8, bar + 30 x 8, bar + 30 x 8 (will be improving this regularly) Arnold Press: 15 x 8, 30 x 6, 30 x 6 (really struggled in this today) Seated Row: 75 x 10, 90 x 8, 60 x 15, 60 x 15, 60 x 15 (decided to lower weight and increase reps as it felt like it was really hitting th back with higher weight, focused on technique) Lat Fly: 10 x 8, 20 x 8, 20 x 8, 20 x 8 (enjoy doing these) Pec Fly: 45 x 8 (5 sets, this movement feels so weird to me) Incline Press: 60 x 8, 75 x 8 (3 sets), 90 x 8 (good way to finish up) Then went for a small run after getting home, stopped and did some dips at the benches from time to time

  8. Awesome, I wanna be a Manatee!!!
  9. Decided to look up about myself and MF's toes, turns out its a condition called brachymetatarsia. Essentially its a growth defect, the bone stops growing for any number of reasons. I vaguely remember having these shoes that I literally couldnt part ways even when they were way too small for me. Im guessing this is the reason I have it. Jennifer Garners toes look exactly like mine!
  10. Great pics, keep up the epic work!!! Did the judges say anything in particular?

  12. Hey Jim, looks like youve read a lot of info out there! There is a lot of conflicting info thats for sure. What are your goals? Any info you can provide about yourself will help us here in suggesting some rough numbers
  13. Mine are exactly the same, nice to know I am not some kind of weirdo freak haha haha for real!!!??? Never seen it elsewhere before. We should have been in the hobbit haha
  14. Hey Jim, Welcome to the forum! Would love to visit NY one day Hope to see you active in the forums and heading towards your goals.
  15. Nice to see ya get a journal up an running, that food youve had so far is making me so hungry. Simple food is the best!
  16. Hey team, Just wondering if there is any interest in perhaps getting a meet up organised for Vancouver in a month or so? We could all get dinner and then do an activity or something along those lines! Must be some vancouverites out there
  17. My little toes, no idea what the deal is, but they rest on top of the toe next to it permanently. Know idea how to get it fixed, always makes me a bit self conscious taking of ma shoes tho!
  18. Ive had this question A LOT in the last couple months while travelling. My primary reason was/is: Too feel better through out the day every day. This is the reason I give to people as its the truth, however as seen above there is so much more to it. Going forward I will also mention the ethical and environmental reasons also, talking to people they say they want to become vegan but have no self control, I hope by providing more benefits of becoming vegan, that this may be the extra motivation that they need. +1 to what Richard said also, economics in its simplest form!
  19. How big is your town? Cool thing to say, thou we hope we that it would be different Have a browse around the site, lots of useful info, whats your body composition lie at the moment? To keep the motivation up, look into starting a journal
  20. As said above, get a log going, would be of good value!
  21. Tried the chocolate flavoured Sports Vega product for the first time today, wholly moley that is a yummy shake!
  22. Yea bout 6km, wasnt keeping track until I got home and worked it out! Got Bank account, sim card, and SIN sorted out though so big win. Went to the Steve Nash chain of gyms today, think I will stick with them, good price line (better than Aussie), good equipment and convenient. They did a quick body composition test, just one where you stand on the scales etc but that body % seems pretty low. http://img818.imageshack.us/img818/6415/photo5qs.jpg Also bought some MyVega today, wholly! Its the tastiest protein shake ever.
  23. Wow, that is crazy! Hope the surgeon has some positive news for you, we are all thinkin of ya!
  24. Have finally made it to Vancouver!!! Awesome time in Portland and Seattle. Gutted I didnt make it to PlantFit PDX while there, but no doubt I will be back. Portland really is the Vegan capital of the world! Arrived in Vancouver Tuesday night, walked roughly 30km yesterday getting everything set up. Having a chill day today, but then tomorrow I am back to working out. Looking forward to writing workouts etc. here with consistency again!
  25. So Portlands cardio has been purely walking, lots of it. Did a hike yesterday which was a good change. WOW! There is so many vegan options here, you literally can walk down any street and before long you will stumble across a shop that clearly states what vegan items are on there menu. There a also a bunch of vegan cafes/restaurants too which is awesome. There is a food cart (1st photo)I have been to 3 times now for a yummy vegan burrito, here is the zucchini one (2nd photo). 3rd photo is of the vegan mini mall, personally it was below my expectations, but its got such a good foundation they can make it a real hit! http://img708.imageshack.us/img708/4197/img0528aty.jpg http://img580.imageshack.us/img580/1491/img0531po.jpg http://img109.imageshack.us/img109/7803/img0573b.jpg
