Robert, that is true, I often joke that my bike is my boyfriend :D I take it everywhere with me. Since it's not too cold I ride each day. I like to be independent of the public transport.
Yeti, It's not a big change for me, because I have never used sugar to tea or coffee, I don't drink sweet drinks. What is more in Poland it's hard to buy vegan sweets, I have only one option: dark chocolate... which you can buy without sugar :) I use sugar only to cakes and home made jams. Since I decided to avoid sugar, I simply don't bake. Hm... I miss chocolate-zucchini cake, maybe I should bake with stevia, thanks for idea.

I have to confess, that I have never tried maple syrup :P It's not popular here, you can buy it in good shops, but It's expensive. I always wanted to try maple syrup with pancakes! Maybe one day... :)

Yesterday's activity:
12km by bike +climbing wall

Today's activity:
about 40 km by bike
swimming!

I'm not well lately, my thoughts are quite bad. Weekends are killing me. I need to have busy scheadule, when I have too much time I think too much about unpleasent things and I fall down. So I'm glad that it's monday again, I hope next weekend will be more constructive, right now I'm mentaly smashed, I don't see any reason why I do all those things... study, sports, healthy food, perfect lifestyle... what for? Right now I don't see any sense in it. Ah! I hope this state won't last long.

I took blood and urine test today, basic parameters. Results will be on Thursday. It's my first that kind of tests since I'm a vegan.

12.10
climbing
13-14.10

Well, I was busy lately, I didn't have time to write.
My schedule is quite crazy, but I still have time for climbing and swimming. Now I'm ill so I have to take a brake, but in general I'm active.

My health bothers me lately. My immunological system is weak, my blood morphology is bad. I'm depressed, a bit hopeless, and it's getting colder and colder outside. I have WBC, LYM, MON, RBC and HCT too low. My doctor is confused, she told me that I have to repeat blood examination after month and then we will see what next... maybe ladies in laboratory made a mistake. I don't know what to think, I'm anxious.

Thanks James :) I'm fine. I'm just super busy lately because of my studies, that is why I can't write often.

I still have problems with my knees, few days ago I went for a run (after long break), and because of that my knee startet to hurt again... I'm very sad because of this. I don't know what is wrong, I'm just 24 and I have worst knees than a grandmother.

Anyway, I'm trying to be active, I still can climb and swim, so I do this in my free time.

Btw this week I'm trying raw diet. Now I'm after my second day of raw diet :) It's just an experiment, after one week I will go back to traditional vegan lifestyle :P I just want to understand how raw vegan life looks like. So... I have to admit that it's not that easy as I thought it will be :D I'm bored of eating fruits and nuts, I want beans!! :D haha

Hmmm... Since September 2012 (when I started to write here) I had good and bad moments, sometimes I felt like in a very good shape, sometimes like a rubbish. Today I did a photos and I realised that I didn't change at all. It's good and bad in the same time. I can't see any progress but I also didn't become a victim of yo-yo effect.

But... I have good news for you! I decided to fight! With 1st of February I'll start my personal "monkey" project. I call it "monkey" because my goal is to be more agile and stronger (just like a monkey) than I am right now. I want to have visible results in 3 months! And be able to do 10 pullups in one serie.

And this is how I look now:

I think your lats are wider than your initial picture, and I can see some more bicep definition!

Thanks jamesxvx for good words.

During last 2 months I had terrible problems with my immunological system, so I was sick most of the time. I couldn't train hard. I started to take some pills with bacterial lysates, at the beginning I felt more sick because of it, but now after 2 weeks of curation I can say that I feel that my organism is much more resistant.

This is my front side, still jelly-belly (this time I'm going to change it for real 6 pack 8) ), and please don't focus on my "good morning" face.

Ok, I'm ready to work hard! :boxer:

Well, I had slight scoliosis as a child. But as a teenager I trained horse riding, then I began to swim regularly. I think, thanks to those sports my spine right now looks fine :)

Heeeey all!

I came back to regular climbing and jogging. I hope, I will burn my fat layer soon. I bought vegan glucosamine for my joints, it should protect me from injuries.

I'm trying to reduce amount of calories... but it's hard :oops: I would like to eat 1700kcal per day, but I usually do 2000kcal. Eh, I love food :heart: :lol:

Life is good!

On last friday I finished first half marathon in my life.

Yesterday I signed up for my first Duathlon (6km cross country running+ 18 km cross country cycling+ 4km cross country running). Distances are not long, so I have to improve my speed. Competition takes place in may, I'm going to train hard :)
