One day just I decide to become a vegan. I do running almost every week. I see the sea, mount, and the star.
When I met a vegetarian, I though it looks fun. One day I just decide to become a vegan for fun challenging. I am not a vegetarian but a vegan.
A vegetarian doesn’t eat meat, but egg, milk, butter, and honey.
But a vegan doesn’t eat meat and dairy product.
I have taken photos of foods I have eaten to show that I don’t only eat grass.
I try to eat whole grain which is much better than white rice.
One day I just decided and I stopped everything in a second. I didn’t miss the meat, but I missed cheese, butters, and ice-cream.
Anyway I don’t miss anything now. There has been no problem to eat, because most of time I eat at the inside.
But I guess it would be the problem when I am on the road.
I will not mind to eat some culture food which has meat on it, because I love to try a new culture. But most of time I want to stay as a vegan.
Sometimes I eat fried things.
It is the order for nutrition. Fry is the worst case. But I like fry food.
There are many things to eat for a vegan. But the problem is outside. There is nothing to order. One day I was in the town, and I was hungry. But I couldn’t find anything to eat. So, finally I bought fried potatoes.
There are soy milk, vegan butter, and more for a vegan. To make a pancake is possible with soy milk.
After left Korea, I got 4 kg in Canada while staying for a year. During cycling in Americas, I didn’t lose any weight.
After leaving Africa, one day I checked the weight in Europe, and I saw I lost 1 kg.
Recently, I lost 2.5 kg. But actually 1.5kg is plus and minus from some number. It depends on the morning and night.
Anyway I feel I see just miracle!! I’ve never seen this two digit numbers over four years!!!
Now I am back to these two numbers!!!!
I guess because of stopping butter and cheese.
So far I’ve eaten bread which is not made of milk and butter. Thanks to the host, I could get many helps. But I think I will have the problem to buy bread if I am on the road alone, because I don’t know a local language to figure out.
I decided to become a vegan on 14th of April. Since that time, I’ve done running. It is my first time to try. So at the first day, I could only run 4 km (2.5mi) and every 500m (1,640 ft) I stopped to breathe well. The place I run is around the mountain, so it is really hard. The most painful is with knees. But I ran 1 km (0.6 mi) more and more for a week. Even I didn’t stop, but ran in one time.
I’ve run over five weeks.
Running is different from cycling.
After one hour running, my shirt is wet with too much sweat. After one hour cycling, my shirt is still dry.
During running, I can have pain easily with knees and ankles. But during cycling, if it is not uphill, then it is fine.
Once I start running, I don’t need to stop like cycling. But for sure running is more painful than cycling.
Here is one big helper which keeps me up. Nike plus app! It gives me medals and cheers me up with a voice.
I can see more detail thing on the website.
Sometimes I cycle. It is really hilly place.
While having exercising, I got accident.
I will paste what I wrote on my facebook page.
“Yesterday I almost died. I fell down on a curve of the downhill while moving so faster for exercising with a bicycle. The first part of my body which hit the road was not my arms or legs, but HEAD!!
I could not stand up for minutes but just lying down, because I had too strong headache although I wore a helmet.
I sit over 30 minutes at the place I got accident to get better. But my headache was not stopped. Bad luck..
I didn’t vomit, and I could see everything clearly that I think I don’t need to go to a hospital. Today is better than yesterday.
The helmet saved my life again! Thank you, my helmet!”
After few days, I got totally better.
When I was so sad, because I realized I was too poor to climb Kilimanjaro, I tried to make some money with building wordpress website. I didn’t get any job for months. But recently I started one work. I wanted to finish, but I didn’t get many dates from a customer. So I just did as much as I can, and I taught how to use it. Then I finished it.
Suddenly I got one more job. It was my second job.
It is my last job.
Since this one, there is no more job offer. I guess recently there are so many professional about it.
I had a broken part of my pannier in Italy. I didn’t explain to Ortleib company, but I just asked a new part. They didn’t have any question with me, but just sent me a new part for free. In my experience, ortleib is the best for the service in the world.
There was one funny thing. They sent me a small little part in a big box. I was thinking they put some gift more.
I ordered some Korean food from Slovenia to take care of myself as a vegan on the road.
I did want to order Kimchi which is so traditional Korean food, but I didn’t order because there is fish sauce.
I also bought some chop board and pot. I will post about food more, I guess from now.
I will just upload pictures from here without many words.
Enjoy the picture….
In a small island
Between day and night….
Night and stars…
And shooting star………..
