Day 100

100 days of intermittent fasting!!!

I won't explain what intermittent fasting is and all its benefits - the internet is full of articles and information (I recommend this one).
Please read about it before judging, commenting, etc... people tend to do that...

What I will tell you is that I was the person that would get up just because I was hungry in the morning... And when I started I honestly thought I was gonna last 5 days :D
Well, I lasted 100 so far :)
I feel a lot more energy in the morning, I lost a lot of volume (I always felt bloated around the ankles and knees), I train better (if I train in the morning I normally eat a banana before), and I lost 5 kg. I'll be doing blood tests in the next couple of weeks as well.
And I do not follow a strict rule during the "eating period"... I try to eat well, but I also love food... so the weekend dinners are full of bread, cheese, wine/beer, ...
I feel very happy with the changes in mood, in my body,... I will continue!!! :)

Last week, one of my team mates had a breakdown... work and work related stress caused him to have a meltdown. Now he is off... recovering...

And I'm struggling really hard not to get to the same point...

Sad days

Last week we were doing a ride on the longest portuguese road N2... from Chaves to Faro...
Along the way, the passed through some amazing places.... some of them are now on fire :(, like Pedrogão Grande and Góis... :(
It is very sad all that is happening to these places and to the people that lives there :( I have no words...

(Góis... last week...)

Do they really pay a team to make them look like this?!

OMG.... I found Trello!!!

And now you ask: what is Trello?
Well, Trello is a collaboration tool, that organizes projects into boards.

And then you can ask me: why do you needed? how do you use it?
I use it for everything.... and I mean everything....
I'm even trying to use it at work, with my team!!

At this moment I have boards with personal tasklists, boards to plan vacations, to help us search for a new apartment, even one to plan my blog posts!!!!
I can share ideas with Piquinote (or friends) and they can add comments, their own ideas,... I can create tasks and assign them... and track their evolution...

I really find it very easy to use and very helpful!!!
So, my challenge to you is... go find Trello here, watch some Youtube videos related to this and them let me know your thoughts!

Almost there....

In 3 days, I'll be 41!!!
Really... I can't even imagine that, but it's true!!! 41!!!
And I feel (in most aspects) much better at 41 then I did at 40, 35 and definitely 30!!!

I need new crossfit shoes... And I was waiting to find the Reebok Nano 6.0 at a reduced price... But then both Reebok and Nike decided to change my plans!!!
They bot launched new models... Reebok Nano 7.0 and Nike Metcon 3.

And now I don't know which ones to choose... 
I've read reviews on both... and they are very similar....

Any thoughts?

Tooth Brush

I always, always left my tooth brush on the hotels bathrooms... For me, that was never a problem...
I'd put it on a glass, and leave it there during the day.

But one day somebody said "Can you imagine what the hotel maid can do with your tooth brush while cleaning the room?"
And that was the last day I left it unattended....

Now, I always put it away before leaving the room.... always!!!!!!!

Do you think I'm weird?!?
