Hey FS!!! I have no idea what I weigh right now since the scale was really making me mad after putting in so much effort at the gym, but I've finally started to see some progress in my body. I'm still faithfully going to the gym, increasing my running speed, and making gains all around.

I'm still vegan. Although, I got into a trap of eating vegan convenience foods and vegan junk. I thought that I had gained weight because of the lifting I was doing at the gym, but I sat down with myself to get a reality check.

1. I was only fluctuating up and down the same 3-5 pounds in the beginning, but I changed my eating thinking that I was doing something wrong.
2. I was doing well while lifting until my family vacation in May when I introduced chips and convenience foods into my diet.
3. Chips are a weakness and a trigger for other snacks.
4. Convenience vegan meals are a trigger for eating out and other non-whole foods.
5. My workouts weren't enough to keep up with the junk I was putting in, so that's where 10 pounds of weight gain really came from.

So, about 3 weeks ago I went back to making sure I cooked from home, putting away the chips, quinoa quinoa quinoa (no rice because it's inflammatory in my body). I started performing better at the gym and running faster. My tummy started flattening out and my side started to come back in.

I wore an old body shaper under a dress a few weeks ago and now I see why people are so obsessed with waist trainers. Not sure I'll ever by a waist trainer but it was so cool to see how sexy my midsection looked the next morning. Now I've been wearing it every time I wear a dress or something dressy-ish at work.

Okay, that's enough for now. Onward...

Believe it or not I'm actually on the decline. I was freaking out that I'd gained more than 10 lbs as soon as I began weight lifting. But I've gone from a size XL to a L in all of my clothes. My friends keep telling me not to worry but I've got a life of weight loss experience and only two months of weight lifting experience...judging by the scale is a hard habit to break.

So one of my friends who is an ex-lifter let me know that she is certain that I'm not consuming enough protein to compete with my lifting. So, now I am sampling different vegan protein powders. Made banana icecream using the protein powder (frozen banana, coconut milk, protein powder) and it was freaking delicious. This is going to be a fun experiment to see which protein powder I like the best.

Got a pool party to go to next week. And I'm rocking the bikini!
