Sorry it’s been so long since I last posted.  I have been very busy with promoting my TV show at a UFO convention and editing a documentary film about animal rights as well as hosting my local live TV show.  It’s been a little crazy around here.  I have been doing my workouts though, I want you to know.  In fact, I just got back from the park where I went for a run with my dogs and ran about 2 miles.  Then, when I got home, I decided that I needed to run a little more, so I ran around in the street by my house for a while and my husband took this picture.

Last night I went to the gym and worked my legs and man has my butt been sore ever since (I think it’s because I did the outer thigh machine first and really used a good amount of weight and then did the movements really slow while squeezing my glutes).

Here’s that workout:

  • outer thigh Roc It machine: 10 reps/45 lbs X 2, 12 reps/39 lbs
  • calf press Roc It machine: 10 reps/376 lbs, 10 reps/444 lbs, 10 reps/478 lbs (drop set to) 10 reps/342 lbs
  • inner thigh Roc It machine: 15 reps/45 lbs, 10 reps/52 lbs X 2
  • hamstring curl machine: 5 reps/100 lbs (drop set to) 5 reps/80 lbs, 8 reps/80 lbs X 2
  • leg extension: 12 reps/145 lbs, 8 reps/160 lbs, 12 reps/145 lbs
  • leg press machine: 15 reps/150 lbs, 12 reps/200 lbs, 15 reps/180 lbs

And, as always, I’m getting plenty of vegan protein, for instance, here’s what I ate yesterday:

  • Breakfast (25 g protein): 2 cups Optimum Slim cereal (18 lbs) with 1 cup soy milk (7 g protein)
  • Snack: 1 cup walnuts (30 g protein)
  • Lunch (27 g protein): sandwich with complete protein bread (10 g protein), tempeh (15 g protein), 5 large spinach leaves, 1 slice Veggy cheddar cheese (2 g protein), 1 slice red pepper, mustard and Veganaise.
  • Dinner (36 g protein): Seitan pepper steak (25 g protein), 2 small red potatoes (6 g protein), with mushrooms, onions and garlic, and 1 cup of cooked spinach (5 g protein)
  • Before gym: 1/2 Builder’s Bar (11 g protein)
  • After gym: 1 scoop Vega Sport Performance Protein in water (20 g protein)
  • Total: 159 grams of protein for the day!
