Hi to all of you and thank you for accepting me here!
My name is George and I am 33 years old, married, two children, 8+4. I am from Romania, Europe.
I stopped eating meat more than 10 years ago and I turned vegan arround 30 moths ago. I made exceptions a few times and I eat some food that had eggs or dairy in it, mostly cookies, but only as an exception.
I kept a food journal for 1.5 years on a very good forum here and it helped me immensely. It's a standard diet forum and now I feel that I need to find a vegan comunity to further educate myself.
Keeping this diary was the best thing I did for my diet and health, as it helped me rotate foods and most importanly, knowing that I will write down all food I eat is preventing me from eating all sort of bad stuff, like sugar and gluten.
I worked out twice a week for 6-7 months with a personal trainer, once in the gym, once yoga. Mainly body weight exercises and small (2-4kg) weights. 2-3 months ago my pt left the country and I stopped going to the gym. I continue however to workout at home, once a week, a lot less intense unfortunately.
I plan on going back to a gym an workout once a week there and once a week at home. Before meeting my ex personal trainer, I never worked out in my life, never was attacted to sports. Now I am atracted to looking good and being healthy.Thu, 31 OCT 2013
