Hi, everyone

I am new to the forum, but not to the fitness/vegan way of living (I don't call it "lifestyle" because I think that's not what it is).

I've always recommended to others (who seem to have no control of their diet and workouts) to keep a log of what they eat and what they do, but I've never kept one myself, so now I've decided to give it a try and see if it is going to be helpful at all.

In this log I intend to post my workouts, things I eat, moods and general physical state.

I expect and hope for opinions, suggestions and even critisism of your side
