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!:

Very Competitive Mode

I have to say that things are really going very fast and also in the right direction ( so it seems ). 🙂 So as some of you may already know I and my husband went to Switzerland for Easter holidays. Please forgive me that I haven’t shared some photos.. So I will do it now 🙂 There are a lot of photos of nice view in Switzerland. There are also the family that showed us around and welcomed us as guests. We had the chance to live in Zurich’s hotel Sheraton. We drove to Luzern, Viamala and other nice places. Here are just the photos but in few words… We called ourselves as mountain junkies because we just were astonished by them. We took a lot of photos as well. We saw the biggest clock in Europe which is actually bigger than Big Ben ( the diameter of the clock itself is about 8 meters ). Then the amazing Viamala which is just a deep gorge between mountains. And the water was green everywhere and it was drinkable. Sweet. (a-face-of-approval). Also we ate lunch in the restaurant that you see in one photo.. there are queues all the time! Did you know that Logitech is a swiss company? And we also walked through the Bahnhof strasse. Tina Turner lives nearby ;D

Photos are here:

So at work everything is fabulous! I am now at my new department and we are learning the new processes. Also I am on my way to learn B2 level for Norwegian. On the 15th of August I am having my exam. After that I will get a salary increase. Fint, ikke sant? But I mean.. the job itself is so satisfying. I actually enjoy it. A lot! So interesting things going on and so interesting things that you can learn 🙂

Valts got baptized! He was so adorable in his costume. And he has his sneaky smile. Cuuutee!

We also bought a carpet that is under our tables now, because the chairs that we have were destroying the floor :F

Tomorrow we are planning to have a CS:GO marathon. We are going to buy all the food we need and then play CS:GO Competitive mode.. pretty much all day. FINALLY! >:)

Positive Emotions

Hello! Last time I said that I should take more photos. And I did! 🙂 Yesterday I had to go to Ķegums to teach English and in the evening the weather was great. It wasn’t very warm but it was ok, but it was sunny. I got on to the train and to my surprise – it was empty, at least my passenger’s car. It stayed that way for about 15 minutes so I had the time to take some photos.

Empty ^^

 

Great!

 

 

These flowers are amazing. I hope they will grow more in the forest and maybe then I could use them in our wedding 🙂

Anyway.. I was just listening to music, singing along (lip sync), and appreciating everything I have in my life! 🙂
