So how has the process of trying to help your best friend go vegan been going? What seems to hit home or really work towards changing their mind? I am working on trying to help my girlfriend eat healthier and what has recently been helpful was that she watched a documentary on animal cruelty.

Thanks everyone for the support.
Had a great 2,5 hours of walking at the beach, it´s amazing how we lost the sense of time in front of the sea, but it´s ok, I am enjoying my Summer vacation, no rush at all.
I walk in a leisure pace, but when you walk at the send, I feel that I have to put more efforts at legs, harmstrings and calves.
After a lot of injuries I felt that was better to take some weeks of the iron and increase my cardio, with long walkings, runing and swiming.
The weather is very hot, around 103° F and I have to walk early at morning and in the afternoon, after 5 pm due UVA and UVB, that´s very strong here.
Had my detox drinking this morning: @dani_ress (check it out) and diet is doing great. At the end of the day, I´ll write it here.
That´s for now.
Preparing lunch
Cheers
Dani

Well, @CO, it´s not easy. Brazil is the country of the meat and meat, specially chicken is very cheap here. Eggs are appreciated and everything that comes from animal protein.
I realized that showing pics, movies and stuffs like that don´t work here. The love for the animals are associated only to dogs, cats, birds (some cases...) and maybe a bunny or a goat, but when is up to cows, chickens, fish, pigs and other animals, they´re cruel.
My strategy is: let´s, first eat less meat, let´s enbrace meatless Monday.... things like that.
Let´s see how it goes...

Good look with gf.

Cheers

Dani

Hi everyone.
Just came back from a great runing at the beach. We ran at 8 am and it was almost 100 F. Lot's of hot weather and we have to run before 10 am because the UVA and UVB and we must be carefull.
Gonna run again later, but it has to be after 7 pm, when the tempertature cools a little bit.
Anyway, having low calories since yesterday and today is going to be around 1500.
Let's see where it takes me,.
Cheers

Hi everyone
Had a so so day in my food intake. Almost 2000 cal. Some friends say that 1500, my inicial plan, is too little for a body like mine. I got what here is called big bones, and some friends say my body is used to 2000 cal and has estabished a plato at 75 kgs. Considering I used to weight when I was a teenager, some around 73 kgs, maybe is true.
I´ll write some more, but try not to write those same things every day.

Are your daily calories cyclical or do you try to eat around the same all the time?

HI @Mini Forklift
How´s everything?
I try to eat around 1500 every day, but it´s not working because in the end of the day I am so hungry that I ended it up around 2000.

Good luck on ya goals! If you feel like all the goals are all too much to keep up with at once, dont be afraid to introduce a new one every couple weeks. I find personally if I can make gradual changes the habits tend to stick more.

BRAZIL!!!! Will get there one day :)
Just do it.

Hi @captfit
Welcome to my log. Always appreciated.
Not so much a runing one, but I consider run the "king" of exercises, especially cardio. I don´t like it too much, but it´s necessary.
As I am on vacation at the beach, I run when it´s not raining, wich is not the case, during the past 3 days, we´re having pouring rains every day.A
And u? What kind of sports do u like?

All the best

Dani

Hi everyone.
Not posting a lot because I don´t want to write everyday the same things. It sounds boring to me and to the readers.
So, my diet goes pretty much everything around 1500 or 1700 cal. I try to be at 1500, because I need to lose weight and body fat.
As I am on vacation at the beach, I haven´t been consistent at the gym and try to run every day, but it´s raining a lot here, so I am out of runing for 3 days in a row.
When I come back at home, I´ll be posting more.
Feel free do ask me any questions, and follow me on twitter. I really enjoy to help people to achieve their goals.
I am a very positive person ans I believe in the power of the mind. Mind is everything, as Kai Greene told.
All the best
