So another year, another chance!

Firstly Happy New Year!

This year seems to be the year where I have to make some serious changes to the way I’ve been living for the last many years. It is sorta new year resolutions, but yeah, since those rarely get followed through, I just consider them goals. Which I guess is what a rasolution is, but whatever..

I’ve been a vegetarian for quite some years by now. And on my way home after a christmas vacation at my parents place i finally watched Cowspiracy. This movie is, end, lets just say powerfull! I am still sorta surprised over it, even though I kinda knew the message before watching it. But nevertheless it also put the final drop in my goal to go vegan. I signed up for the 30 day vegan challenge, link here, and the mails have some great ideas and are a nice reminder of an “easy” way to go vegan, offcourse the step is not that big when you are already vegetarian.. 😉 I put a few exceptions in my goal-list, which include I can eat all the vegetarian stuff already in my house, even more wastefull to just throw it away and I will allow myself vegetarian food while visiting friends. I’ll try to avoid it, but I also don’t want to force my choices over their heads.

Step two of my chance plan includes cutting down on alcohol, which I do enjoy, enjoy a lot to be fair, but with some more serious things going on in my life, it seems to be a smart choice to cut down the usage of alcohol. At this moment I’m still going strong with partying a minimum of once a week, including big amounts of alcohol.. So the goal is simple, a 3 month dry period! To be fair the real goal is 1 year, but i also know that I’m a sucker for small goals, so having a 3 month, 1/2 year and full year as goals should work a lot better for me! So hopefully that one will be good!

The third step is to excercise more. This is a general goal that I have been working on already for the last few months, since my shape is kinda bad and I want to be more serious with the other stuff I’m doing. I’m just focussing on getting used to running right now, since my first run gave me a two week pain break. But it is slowly going better!

Highly inspired by Hannah Wittons New Year Resolution 2016 video, I will also try to read more, I can’t go with 50 book challenge, since I have enough school related reading to do, but I’ll try to make it a book a month. I know the reading as a way to relax is simply great! Good for the imagination! Just great for getting rid of the daily stress!

I will still try to record and upload more, but that is a less serious goal at this moment, since I have no idea where my vlogging camera is, or well, actually it is the charger I am missing!

I will also try to get back on twitter, but I cannot really promise I’ll do that. Somehow it seems that I do it for a bit, and the I just forget about it, simply to busy with being alive in the real world! 😉

So much for blogging daily.. As you might have guessed, life happened next to the computer/internet life, so I just plain forgot about blogging..

So far life is mostly good, spring on the way, so skydiving season is starting again, and with that, the possibility to jump more. Spend all the money that I do not have.. But that is just life I guess..

Been uploading a bit on youtube lately, so that is at least going better than in 2014, but yeah, lets start with seeing how long I can keep my focus up on that. Might just become “boring” when the summertime comes and life is more outside than inside..

Other than that I made somthing like this Chana Masala yesterday. Super dinner! So gonna go search that site for more awesome vegan recipees…

Other than that, I’ll go back to playing some more GTAOnline, since that seems to be all I do at this time..

So, once again I didn’t take the time to update my blog.. Once again, there was just so much other stuff that needed to be done..

I was in Belgium for the Formula 1 Grand Prix.. It was great! Super race, so great to see! But also so strange to experience that you don’t really need earplugs for the F1 anymore.. But the GP2 and GP3 they where much needed! For the Formula 1 I have to say that I am a Ferrari supporter.. Been since I started watching F1, and will most likely be ’till the day I stop..! And yeah, yeah.. Ferrari won alot in the early 2000’s, but I started watching a few years before that, so before they did that..

Also I just went for the first run of the summer.. Been way to long since I did that.. So tired.. Sore.. And really happy with myself right now.. Not an impressing time.. Just a great feeling!

Also I sorta trying to go vegan.. Still strange.. But love it!

Today has been a long day of not doing that much… The idea for the day was to do some tandem skydives over the “Made in Denmark” golf tournament, but unfortunately the weather was against us.. But that is just life of a skydiver..

Other than that, my biggest thougths of the day has been regarding going vegan.. What to eat.. What to eat..

The basic idea pretty much gives itself.. loads of fruits and veggies.. But all my meals still present a challenge.. So much new stuff to explore, and so little money to do that..

I ordered a few cookbooks from PETA, so hopefully they will help me further..

Basicly I been living from cornflakes and soymilk the last few days… And some cheese free pizza… (Which was surprisingly good)..

Today my meals have been rye-bread with tomato and onions.. Still love that, so no harm in that.. And for dinner an amazing serving of full grain pasta (is that what it is called, you know, the healthy brown pasta thingy?), with spicy tomato sauce and avocado.. That was simply soo good! I could pretty much eat it every day!

I’m pretty sure I have tons of stuff that I wanted to write about, but I simply am reaching a state of tiredness where I have trouble focussing on what I’m doing.. So I’m gonna end this blog post here!

Over and out! /mike
