Vegan Diet, Iron Workout

Continuing my experiment of a vegan diet combined with a modified meathead's workout for November.

Will be experimenting with some new foods, but I went with a huge meal of Amy's chili and wild rice yesterday while watching the Packers-Vikings game.

Also kept it simple with today's after workout meal of 3 almond butter sandwiches on flax bread with 2 glasses of chocolate almond milk.

Today's workout was...

1) Power Clean - 2x5

2A) Squat - 2x5, 2x8
2B) DB Incline Press - 2x8

3A) Seated Row - 2x15
3B) Plank - 2x90 seconds

4) Chinups

So far, so good.

Oh, and one more thing...I was re-reading Kekich Credo #1 today, and here's what it said:

"If you want to accomplish anything, get out of your comfort zone and increase order and discipline in your life. Discipline usually means doing the opposite of what you feel like."

And here are my thoughts on that, you need to... 

• Set deadlines

• Discover & do what you do best & what's important & enjoyable to you

• Replace your bad habits and thought patterns, one-by-one, over time, with good habits and positive thought patterns

That's how you'll succeed!

To your success,

PS - Did you know...

You are 6 times more likely to lose weight if you weigh yourself at least once per week (Men's Health, Nov 2009).

And...

You are also much more likely to lose weight if you throw the extra Halloween candy in the garbage rather than in your mouth (CB, Nov 2009).

Stay strong!

Nice post. Especially when you mentioned about weekly weigh ins. I'll admit before 3 weeks ago...I have slipped a little on that aspect only because my scale battery needed change - so the tendency was to slack off the weekly weights that I've been so accustomed to doing for so long. But it's amazing how much this fat loss thing is just as mental as it is physical. couldn't agree more, cb...powerful tips as always.
