Raw Vegan Meltdown

My camera phone can't do enough justice to show you the great results I am getting from my Raw Vegan meal plan... But know this! I am shedding the inches, feeling amazingly strong and have tremendous ENERGY!!!!

I woke up this morning feeling light and happy :) I wanted to get up so bad, then looked at the time and it was 3:30 am. I second guessed getting up and doing a little work before heading to the gym... but thought NAH!! Instead I put my 2 year old in the bed with us and snuggled with her for an hour then got up to get ready for the gym.
This morning I did Shoulders and 45 minutes of really good cardio.
Here is my workout:
10 Minute Warm - up on the Elliptical

Lateral Deltoid Raise
* Set 1 - 15lbs 12 reps
* Set 2 - 20lbs 8 reps
* Set 3 - 25lbs 8 reps

Seated Deltoid Flies
* Set 1 - 15lbs 12 reps
* Set 2 - 20lbs 12 reps ( My old trainer stopped me on after these two sets saying I was lifting too heavy and needed to focus on my form... so I took his advice and took it down to 10lbs and really FOCUSED on the muscle I was working)

You look SO AMAZING! I originally found your videos on YouTube then followed over to your blog. I started working out and eating healthy in September and I've lost 33 pounds so far but I've stalled a bit so my next step is going to be starting P90x soon. I have a long way to go but I am super jazzed to start P90x.

Your blogs and videos and upbeat, kickass attitude have been SUCH an inspiration to me! Keep up the awesome work!

Malynda Twitchell said...
