My Fitness Log
Hey there, my name is Ryan and I just signed up. I have an intro thread about my story, but to sum it up; I've been overweight my whole life, about two and a half years ago I started doing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, which helped me get into pretty good shape, I didn't, however, change my diet, I got injured (sprained knee) about 6 months ago, couldn't train, put on a bunch of weight (up to 250), and was generally unhappy, just over a month ago I decided to make some changes, started training again, supplimented my training with a pretty hardcore conditioning routine, and went Vegetarian.
2 days ago I decided to go Vegan, and today weighed in at 216. My Jiu Jitsu game has shot through the roof. My Strength & Conditioning Coach is a BJJ Black Belt as well as an NASM Cert. Trainer. He's the one who convinced me to go vegan.
This is more or less just going to be a thread to track my progress in all aspects of Fitness/Strength&Conditioning/BJJ/Vegan and attempt to get an overview of exactly where I'm at. I'd love some feedback from you guys as to what might help. Also would love some ideas to keep me active, as I am an unemployed male housewife at home with an 18 month old.
Cheers and thanks for the support!

I have no ideas, myself. I'm among the unfit, even though I like the gym. Luxuriant stache, btw & ftw.
