Today was Chest and Bicep day.  I had a great workout! The picture from today is pretty weird (my shirt was all jacked and I had to snap the picture quickly).  Anyway, no remarkable differences yet, but I feel great.  My endurance has improved so much since switching to a plant-based diet.  I used to watch the treadmill time like a hawk wishing for it to go by faster, now I feel like I could run forever…. 

Incline DB Press: 30lb DB x10 reps, 25×10,10

Hammer DB Curl: 20lb DB x 10 (3 sets)

Chest Fly: 15lb DBx12 (3 sets)

Cable Biceps Curl:  40lb on the cable x 10 (3 sets)

Ended with 25 minutes of HIIT on the treadmill (5 minute walking warmup and then 10 cycles of 1 minute at 3.8 and one minute at 7.5)

Diet:

Diet was good today, although I probably should have eaten a little bit more carbs.  On weight training days I am aiming for around 140 grams.  On non weight training days, more like 110-115.

Meal 1: 1/2 cup cooked quinoa with a scoop of Life’s Basics protein powder mixed in.  I also put a teaspoon of Smucker’s Sugar Free Jam (made with Truvia!!) on top.  Wow- it kinda tasted like a jelly doughnut!

Meal 2: Same as meal 1!

Post workout: vegan protein cake (homemade)…. recipe coming soon!!!

Meal 3: Salad greens with some red peppers, onions and cucumbers, squirt of dijon mustard and a sprinkle of red wine vinegar as dressing.  Vegan boca on top.

Meal 4: PB and J at daughter’s soccer practice (plan ahead people!)

Meal 5: 1/2 cup lentils cooked with a little bit of veggie stock and 1 cup of raw mushrooms.  Cooked like a stew.  Topped with a vegan boca.

Meal 6: 1 scoop Plant Fusion with 1 cup almond milk.  Added 2 TBSP of PB2 on top!  Tasted like a peanut butter cup…. so good!

Macros:

1,342 cals 125 carbs 32 fat 141 pro

Until next time!
