Some belived that my diet was too dificult, but it isn't, I really havent been hungry since I started, 18 days ago.
I feel lighter on my feet, more alert, and my body seems to be functioning better. For the past week I did notice a slight slow-down on the great effects that the diet brought, like more regular bowel movements, more alertedness, higher quality sleep, and I started feeling a bit "slower", bowel is still regular, just not everyday, alertedness is there, but I also feel stress more because of increased work pressure for the past week, and sleep, well, sleep will allways be a problem for me, I must have been a vampire on my former life...
Point is, I'm here still alive and kicking, and like that Robbie Williams song says, the worst you can do to your enemies is living well (I don't consider anyone here on gamedev an enemy, let's define enemy here as someone that had a diferent point of view than mine).
This week I started exercising again, and I must say that I'm better than the last time I swam, there is something about a vegan-centric diet that leaves your body with more energy than a diet where you have longer digestive periods (that means digesting meat, fish or anything that is elaboratly prepared, life frieds). Not having a heavy digestion leaves you more energized.
I still do get cravings, sometimes horrible ones, allways about sugar, but I've been able to get past them.
What I haven't been able to get past was my swim times this past friday, here they are:
* 400m (16 laps) in 12:55 (48 secs per lap)
* 1.000m (40 laps) in 33:30 (50 secs per lap)
* Finished at 1.400m (56 laps) in 51:00 (54 secs per lap)
Not bad for my 3rd trip to the pool after months of no exercise, uh?
