JP- not a chance! I've got a million recipes to try now (loving the recipe section!) and have fallen in love with 'love veggies and yoga' I'm sure I can do this without resorting to junk
SpugFab- Thanks, thats a really good idea. I actually worked up the courage to ask a lifter at the gym this morning about her diet. I've admired her for years and talking to her about it felt really good.

Thats the thing that gets me, I'm loving training and seeing good improvements...-Training-
Warm up- Cross Trainer 5 mins on level 12 Random
Squat- 3 x 4 @ 80kg
Bench Press- 6,5,3 @ 37.5kg PB!!!
45 Degree Leg Press- 3 x 6 @ 160kg PB!!!
Standing Cable Flys- 10,10,7 @ 8.75
Dumbbell Shoulder Press on swiss ball- 3 x 8 @ 8kg
Reverse fly on swiss ball- 3 x 8 @ 5kg
Wrist exercise (rolling up weight on a rope attached to a pole) 4, 3 @ 1.25
Back extension- 2 x 8 holding a 10 kg plate at arms length & into chest as you rise
Standing rotation- 2 x 6 (each side) on level 10
Squats felt stronger than last time, getting much more comfortable with the heavy weights
Bench was nice and strong, going up well. Wrists and shoulders feel good, just hoping it stays that way.
Leg press was great! Nice and strong, I know I can do more next time, exciting!
My training feels great, my numbers are going steadily up and I have enough energy for everything else too. I can't be that far off...I haven't lost muscle or strength but have dropped fat... isn't that a good thing?-Nutrition-
Recovery Pudding- banana, 1 scoop pea prot., vanilla, cocoa, chia seeds, water, stevia. *** was much easier to get down than a shake, granted it took about an hour but I don't feel as sick***
Roast Veggies- pumpkin, parsnip, mushroom, eggplant, cauliflower
Chai Tea (w. lots of soy milk)
