I love this photo because I took it at an angle that makes my calf look pretty humongous!  Ha ha!  I have been working the little heifers pretty hard and they are growing, but wowie, that picture’s something else.  I especially love that it show cases my Vegan tattoo right under the gargantuan muscle!!!  Cool, right?!!

I took another photo at the same time, from a different angle, so you can see (the truth) that I’m not quite that huge yet.  But I am coming along.  Man that vegan protein is some good stuff!

One more thing to share with you ladies–  I had some horrible cramps yesterday and the only thing in my diet that was not “period perfect” was that I had that delicious Builder’s Bar the day before (which tastes like a candy bar with lots of chocolate, caramel and sugar).  I have been warned that sugar at that time of the month makes things so much worse, despite how you may crave it.  So, yesterday I made sure not to have one and today I have no cramps at all.  Interesting…

So, here’s my workout from last night (remember S means toes straight, O means toes pointed out and I means toes pointed in—and if you see all three that means I did a set in each direction):

  • Seated Calf Raise (with a spotter): S 5 reps/140 lbs (drop set to) 5 reps/120 bs, O 3 reps/130 lbs (drop set to) 3 reps/120 lbs (drop set to) 5 reps/110 lbs, I 4 reps/130 lbs (drop set to) 6 reps/120 lbs, S standing set with reps to failure with no weight, S, O, I 8 reps/120 lbs, S, O, I 8 reps/100 lbs, S standing set with reps to failure with no weight
  • Rotary Calf Roc It Machine: S 8 reps/444 lbs, S 8 reps/376 lbs, S standing set with reps to failure with no weight, S 8 reps/308 lbs, O, I, 12 reps/240 lbs X 2, S standing set with reps to failure with no weight
  • Calf Press Machine: S, I 10 reps/130 lbs, ) 8 reps/130 lbs, S, O, I 12 reps/130 lbs, S 15 reps/115 lbs, O 10 reps/ 115 lbs, S standing set with reps to failure with no weight
  • Leg Press Machine Calf Press: S, O, I 12 reps/150 lbs X 3

And here’s what I ate yesterday:

  • Before Bed (36 g protein): smoothie with bananas, 2 oz wheat grass (2 g protein), 2 cups soy milk (14 g protein),  and 1 scoop of Vega Sport Performance Protein (20 g protein)
