    Hey all, thanks for the encouragement earlier up the thread.

    I am going to try and get out tomorrow night. Going on the scales this evening was the straw.

    Do you have a link for the exercises you are doing?

    Behold the field in which i grow my fucks etc. Oliver do you actually read shit like this? Royals family plans for Christmas from Gideons paper? I avoid like the plague... even if the word vegan is in it.

    How are you getting on?
    I'm getting to the end of cyclo-cross season, I've not really been training beyond an interval session and a run a week. I'm bored and did 10k today running.

    Did the plan for three weeks. Can't remember which one but it was one that was posted up here. Overdid it, was completely exhausted, then took a night off the schedule and haven't ran once since then, more than two months ago. Haven't been able to put myself into the mindset to get over it. Putting on weight, depressed, not sleeping well, hate my kids. So I can't say it worked out well for me.

    Would you elaborate a bit on this please?

    I can but you will need to be specific about what you want to know about. I can't write everything about what raising them vegan has thrown up.

    How did it go all in all?

    All good.

    How do the kids feel about it?

    All good. Occasionally pissed off when there is cake and other slime at kids parties, but that is fading.

    Are they healthy?

    Yes. No more or less than other kids who eat meat and animal products.

    The main problem we have is with the school dinners.
    They're very against the idea of him bringing a packed lunch.
    

    That's a shame!

    I understand their logic, to a point (communal experience, leveller, they'll all want to do their own thing [so what] otherwise, etc). But if the food they are giving him is not up to a decent standard, then he should be entitled to bring in his own food. It's been slowly bubbling away with us for the past year, slowly reaching boiling point.

    thanks for this. Both mine (nearly six and three) have been raised vegan. The main problem we have is with the school dinners. They're very against the idea of him bringing a packed lunch. I can't wait until the free school meals finish in year 3 and he can eat some decent food. He's the only vegan in his school.

    Where do you get them?
