Ah good! The weight is going down. Weight lifting has got me feeling and looking great, but it is nice seeing a drop on the scale. Maybe that initial gain is starting to drop off now.

The other day, I thought my belly was getting fatter, but it's not. My legs are getting smaller at a much faster rate than my ab region. Thus, it looks like weight gain if you are ignoring the full picture.

I'm not yet at the point where you can see muscle if I'm not flexing. But, you can see that my arms are firm.

I can't believe I'm going to say this, but after watching a Buzzfeed video, I am kind of interested in trying P90x. I've never been interested in it before even though I saw tremendous results in a lot of people. I don't know when I'll have the time to give it a try since I already workout 5x weekly.

My 4-mile run was rough this week. I walked a lot of mile 3 and almost all of mile 4. I must report that I felt exhausted Friday-Thursday while working out. This morning it hit me that it might be time for another B-complex supplement, so I swallowed one pre-workout and today felt back to normal.

Well, anyway. Here's to a great weekend! Onward...

Wow this job keeps me super busy. I didn't realize how long it's been since I've posted. I'm still VEGAN!!!

From February to the end of March I had a hard time keeping my eating under control. They offer so many free snacks here, plus it was just easier to eat a bag full of veggie fries and a tub of hummus than to cook proper meals on my new schedule. So there was an initial gain of 3 pounds.

Then in April, I started cooking again. I found that I like Jasmine rice and I started to eat it for dinner almost every day. It took me awhile to realize it, but I started bloating up like crazy. But as soon as I put the rice aside my weight started dropping fast.

Two Saturdays ago I went to the gym with one of my girlfriends and she showed me how to properly weight lift and have fun with it. I'm so excited that she did. I've been to the gym incorporating cardio and weight training for 10 of the past 14 days. My muscles are taking shape for sure and getting big. It's reflected in my weight, but I'm sure that's going to be temporary.

My belly is flattening, my biceps are becoming pronounced, and even my size L compression pants are starting to sag a bit when I run. I can't even wear the XL that I started out with to run, I might end up mooning people.

I also accomplished a big goal. I ran a 5k in less than 30 minutes. It's been six years since I've been able to do that. Hypoglycemia has taken so much from me. But being vegan keeps the blood sugar under control in such a surprising way. Balanced meals means balanced blood sugar means balanced energy means weight loss.

I'm so energetic. I feel like I have my life back. Life is great right now!

I had to post this even though it's off schedule. It's exciting! I knew when I got on the scale that I was a little backed up. I just needed to make sure that I hadn't gained all of my weight back in the 3 weeks since I took on the new job. The scale at the time showed me that I hadn't gained any back which was good enough for me.

This morning I hopped on the scale. I've been feeling really off. Kind of soft from lack of exercise, not as regular as last month. Bloated. Badly gassy. I was certain there might be a little gain there. I looked down expected 185 or higher and saw 180.8 instead.

Wow! I have to stay vegan. My body is regulating on its own even without exercising. My body hasn't done this in years - maybe seven or eight years! That's a 1 pound a week average, and I'll take it as long as it stays consistent.

Meanwhile, I've got small group tonight and LA Fitness is in that direction, so I'll stop in and get a free 1 week pass to try them out. Okay, back to work now.
