Vegan or not?

June was quite interesting. We went to a wedding. It was really nice. We had some romantic moments especially in the car.

Then another day we drove to Madona with the same car (Which belongs to my father) and it had again problems with starting up. We ended up pushing the car while we were in the graveyard ;D Actually it was Kaspars and his grandparents who pushed the car, because I was driving. My first problems with a car. 😉

Last Saturday it was a teambuilding event for my departement. We had fun time and especially while climbing the thing which was called ”Vells” (translates to Devil). When I got up approximately 2 meters.. my heart started to race and I was in doubt and wasn’t sure if I could do climb any further. I just took some deep breaths and ended up climbing to the top. My colleague helped me a lot by shouting ”Daiga, you can do it!”.

And last but not least... Another attempt of mine to go vegan. Since June 16th I haven’t eaten any meat and I don’t know why but it has been very easy. So I have a feeling that I won’t bounce back to eating it again. But we’ll see of course. And there are other animal products. I haven’t bought milk in few months now although it was my favourite drink together with dinner. The three products that I find most difficult to cut out are sour cream, cheese and eggs. For me meat is the one product that I don’t want to go back because it makes me feel sad to eat a dead animal. The rest of animal products I just want to minimize as much as possible because they don’t have so many benefits. As I also don’t like these labels ”vegan” or ”vegetarian” or ”meat eater” I just call myself a person that avoids eating animal products.
Why am I doing this? I have to be honest here: It wasn’t the fact that someone is dying that struck me the most or made me think about what I am eating. Because I know that animals also have a soul and they still live on and we can see other animals eating each other in nature. So for me firstly it was Teal Swan who talked about so called ”spiritual diet”. Because I was and still am very interested in achieving OBE on regular basis and I wanted to make my body more alkaline so that it is more likely to happen.  And I just understood how healthy it is to cut out animal products and how it could change my health for good. Later on it was Freelee the Banana girl who can be quite harsh sometimes but I guess that that is what I like about her. She is direct and honest. I felt inspired looking at her body and knowing that she is doing all the right things regarding the diet and seeing her blending some fruits and repeating ” you can eat as much as you can! No calories restriction!” just made sense to me because I did not want to do that. She made me buy a blender, finally. Thank god! Now I can have my smoothies! So now when I think about meat and other animal products I also have this good feeling that no one has to get hurt because of me and this is a big bonus. So I see this as a win – win situation. I get my beauty, strength and health and animals get to live on. And I am not there yet to make other people think about going vegan as Freelee is doing this. I am happy that someone is doing this ;D But when it comes to me I just want to make myself feel good and when another person is ready to listen about this lifestyle I will be more that glad to share ideas. P.s. you can find both Teal Swan and Freelee on youtube.  Oh and one more thing – after not eating meat and minimal amount of animal products just for 5 days I felt my skin go soooo soft. I didn’t know that my skin can be so soft! I am amazed! My acne is getting better and my intestines are feeling a lot better.
I have been trying go vegan for a long time and I also had a lot of doubts about protein which we can get from meat and dairy.. and it turn out that there are a lot of plants that can give you full protein. One of my favourite ones are buckwheat and amaranth. 🙂

And now photos and videos!:

My longest journey

Hello my dear frieeends! 🙂

This day I am starting with nice breakfast. Try it yourself – Curb, sour cream, peas and a little bit salt.. MMM.. delicious! 🙂 If you replace the peas and put beans.. it is a great food after workout or in the evening if you are hungry 😛

I feel like I will continue my workout maybe today, maybe tomorrow.. I still cough but… On Saturday I walked well… 12 KM!!!! Hell yeah! Why? Well.. I was in Ogre and my train supposed to be here after 50 minutes.. but I hate that feeling when you have to wait for the train and it actually feels like YOU ARE NOT IN CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE! Soo.. I always wanted to do this.. and I had my new boots on.. I DECIDED TO WALK HOME! So I calculated a bit… and though that it would take 1 hour or so 😛 It was around 7 p.m. and the sun was still shining but it wasn’t hot! It was great! I walked and just smiled and thought that this is one of the best feelings! And I was also thinking a lot which was good because I was able to get my head straight 🙂

But the best thing was that I was saying to myself ” Fck you train! Fck you cars! ( Ok.. maybe not cars.. because I want to get one soon ;D )” But I felt in control again! I was happy because I had legs and it just felt right! So here is a picture of the 12 km I walked 🙂

Ogre – Kegums = 12 km 

My legs hurt in a way they have never.. but it wasn’t that bad. I was simply amazed by myself. And btw.. it took me hour and half to get home that day. But it was totally worth it! ^^

 Do not mess with Daiga! 😎

Konichiwa!

Well it has been a week since I ordered my Philips Headphones SHE8000 (White) and I have already sent money for it.. If the information in their web site is true.. I would have got them last Friday!
And if they don’t reply to my email today, I will call them and ask for explanation.
I’m having breakfast right now – curb pancakes. I have to teach English today at 11:00-13:00  and later again at 17:00-19:00.

I WANT MY HEADPHONES! ;D
