Yesterday I had my live sports TV show that I co-host every Thursday in West Hollywood (called We Ho Sports), and I did a ton of editing on my other show.  And, today I went to Disneyland with friends.  Whether your working or playing, it’s a busy life and getting that workout and high protein vegan food is not always easy.  But believe me, it’s worth the effort.  Just look around Disneyland the next time you’re there—it’s a small world full of increasingly bigger and bigger people.  But I’m here to assure you that with a little effort, you can do it.  For instance, today I did some bar dips at Disney (as you can see in the photo).  I also did lots of calf raises and even a few deep squats and lunges while waiting in line for rides. Don’t be shy about doing things like this–what looks worse, someone exercising in public or someone with a big, lumpy ass in public?  I’d rather be the former than the later.  Besides, wouldn’t it be a better world if everyone exercised all the time, no matter where they were?  I think so.  It’s a beautiful thing!

Anyways, yesterday I was only able to hit the gym for a mere 30 minutes between TV shows and the grocery store.  While I wouldn’t want it to be like this all the time (I will get back to my normal gym routine tomorrow), it is possible to work in more of a work out than you’d think, even when very busy. So don’t give up on your workout, even if your busy–where there’s a will, there IS a way!

Here’s my gym workout from yesterday:

  • Ab Rocker 25 reps X 5
  • Hanging Leg Raises (for Abs): 25 reps X 5
  • Weighted Ab Machine: 25 reps/50 lbs X 2, 25 reps/30 lbs X 3
  • Shoulder Press 10 reps/30 lbs X 2
  • Lateral Shoulder Raise Machine: 8 reps/50 lbs, 6 reps/50 lbs X 3

As for food, you may have to do a little research to find high protein vegan food when out, but there are plenty of websites to help you find the vegan stuff and you can ask around. You can also pack bars like the Builder’s Bar and the Organic Food Bar and make sure you get a good smoothie in the morning.  For instance, here’s what I ate today:

  • Breakfast (40 g protein): smoothie with bananas, frozen blueberries, cherries, acai with added protein (7 g protein), 1 oz frozen wheat grass, 1.5 cups soy milk (10 g protein), 1 scoop Vega Sport Performance Protein (20 g protein) and 1 scoop Vega Complete Whole Food Optimizer (13 g protein)
  • Snack: peanuts (15 g protein)
  • Lunch (20 g protein): Mexican Salad (in Frontier Town) with extra beans (15 g protein), rice (5 g protein), lettuce, grilled veggies, pico de gallo, and avocado.
  • Snack: Builder’s Bar (20 g protein)
  • Dinner: Veggie Burger (20 g protein)
  • Snack: Organic Food Bar (22 g protein)
  • Before Bed (55 g protein): smoothie with bananas, 1 oz frozen wheat grass, 2 cups soy milk (14 g protein), soy yogurt (8 g protein), 1 scoop Vega Sport Performance Protein (20 g protein) and 1 scoop Vega Complete Whole Food Optimizer (13 g protein)
  • Total 192 grams of yummy vegan protein for the day!!!
