    I did some deadlifts today. My training got cut short though. I did some stuff last night too but I really want to go to the gym tomorrow.

    Sorry to hear that. Do you have any idea how many calories you are eating each day? How is your Vitamin B consumption?

    Here's a good quote from Precision Nutrition about vegetarianism, and what nutrients need special attention when animal protein is removed:

    What you should know
    Veganism and vegetarianism only indicates what a person eliminates from their diet. It doesn’t indicate how much healthy food they will consume. Therefore it's important, when making the vegetarian choice, to also choose good nutrition. The foundation of a proper plant-based diet should be from vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains, nuts, and seeds.

    Back in early 1977, a committee on nutrition issued a set of dietary guidelines, calling on Americans to avoid red meat and dairy products. As expected, the red meat and dairy industries engulfed the committee with criticism. The recommendations were then rewritten as: “choose meats, poultry, and fish that will reduce saturated fat intake.”

    Nutrients that are of concern to the strict vegetarian and vegan include:

    · Vitamin B-12 – This is only found in fortified products and nutritional yeasts

    o Aim for 3-5 mcg/day from food or 10-100 mcg/day from supplements.

    · Calcium – Nuts, seeds, tofu (calcium set), fortified non-dairy milks

    o Aim for around 1000 mg per day.

    · Iodine – Kelp, asparagus, green leafy vegetables, iodized salt

    o Aim to consume 75 – 100 mcg every few days.

    · Omega-3 fatty acids – Include flax, hemp, walnuts, green leafy vegetables, DHA from algae supplements

    o Consume AT LEAST 2 grams of added ALA per day.

    o Add a DHA algae supplement if able

    · Vitamin D (D2 is animal free, D3 is animal derived)

    o Aim for 1000 IU (25 mcg) on days you don’t get any sun.

    For extra credit

    · Hippocrates recommended a diet rich in plant-based foods native to their environment.

    I walked today, slower than usual. Still was coughing up a lot of stuff, though.

    Again, quiet exercise videos. People encouraging me discourages me. I need videos without that.

    Did the 5k today. Ran half and walked half of it. Felt good. Next time, I'll run it all.

    I've been keeping up with the P90X, I just forgot to post. Completed Legs and Back Friday, and Kenpo today.

    INTJMom suggested going to Amazon.com and reading the reviews of various workouts. Take special note of the negative reviews (1, 2, and even 3 star reviews) so see why they were rated negatively.

    The alternative is lowering the volume, or altogether muting the TV once you get the hang of the workout.

    Oh no you di'int!

    I'd talk more trash here except I can't bring myself do to it, after the loss to the Redskins.

    Excellent! Now you have a goal for yourself.

    Random question:

    I am 5'7" and ~127 pounds, so I'm not overweight, but most of it isn't muscle. Basically, I'm in a healthy weight range, but I have a bit of a gut.

    I have two goals:
    a) Get rid of gut
    b) Build muscle

    The problem is, these two goals seem to contradict each other. To gain muscle, you need to eat more calories than you use, and to burn fat, you need to burn more calories than you use. How should I go about doing both?

    Any advice would be much appreciated :P

    EDIT: On a side note, I've been keeping up with my plan well so far. I'm home for the week for school break, so my parents are attempting to shove lots of horrible (delicious) food down my throat, so I have a bit of a diet cheat for today haha. Luckily, we have a treadmill here, so I can keep up with the 30 minutes every-other-day plan.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.
