Happiness is a side of life

Saturday, February 12, 2011

Maybe depression or melankoli or sadness consists of not remembering the happy moments in life but making an emphasis on the dark sides and not seeing the beauty that is maybe just around the corner..
To day I walked a tour and saw the most beautiful and adventuress icetapes in some bushes - It seemed like a wall of tiny icetapes. And the sun was shining like anything making the icetapes sparkle.
An evening I went a little tour in the dark. The stars hang low on the sky like a blanket of lights.
I must remember these moments.
"to live happily ever after.." makes no sense. Happiness comes in sparkles. The treasure is to keep these sparkles in mind and recall them - even in the dark days.
Photos and music can bring them back.
Next time I walk I will bring the camera - just in case..

Thin compared with fat

Thursday, February 10, 2011

My love is thin and I am fat..
So I borrowed my steptracker to him to see figures about how much he moves..
He told it was an unusual day and he had found a new and interesting path to walk with the dog.
He took 60% more steps than I did an active day and 3 times as much as I do usually.
OK - When I walk the dog I donīt walk but run emoticon and my bicycle tours donīt count on a steptracker. Next test will be when he has a working day. He works in the night and then sleeps in the day so he is eager to move in free time.
His eating habits are white bread with butter and cheese or chocolate or salami or liver paste. And warm meals consist on fried meat and pommes frites plus a little burger many days.
I eat more than him - but healthier. I donīt use butter on bread and eat whole grain bread and more vegetables and more fruit.
He weighs about 10 kg to little - emoticon

    I love that plate you are displaying!

Everyone's body is different and responds differently to different things. I found for myself, that it was better to focus on what works for me rather than compare myself to what works for others.

Hope you find what works for you! :)

    My husband and I are like this -- he eats a lot, and late at night. He does like to exercise, but he doesn't gain more than five pounds. He is very tall and skinny and I am jealous!

My stoneware bowl

Friday, January 28, 2011


This bowl I made some years ago
I call it Playing
Some people who are very wise and good sellers say
the artist must not tell their thoughts about what they have made.
It takes away the fantasy of the viewer. I am not a wise and good seller so here are some of my thoughts and you are welcome to have other thoughts..
I see it as fun between man and woman and also a fight of power.
The black blue color is invented by a child. She did something I said she should not do - mixing two different glazes on eachother. I wrote down what she did before firing her thing. And I liked the result! emoticon

    Very cool! I like your thoughts about what you made and tend to think along the same lines. Glad you liked what the child did and wrote it down. emoticon

Some words about partnership

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

A book said
Are you looking for a partner who

is interested in what you are doing

Try to be interested yourself
That gave me some thoughts.. wanting to do more exercise and than use 2 hours in front of the computer
To day I had to prepare something for my teaching.. My partner yelled.. where is the drill for walls, where is.. in stead of spinning around I gave respect to the fact I had a project that even had a deadline.
I would like to walk tours with him. But I canīt expect he wants to walk the right time for me. And maybe sometimes I will have to be the one to take action maybe alone or maybe with him or maybe with some different people.
Well I must admit that putting me and my activities in focus rather than thinking of we doing this and that may seem lonesome or selfish.
On the other hand waiting for each other to take action rather than acting is too passive.
Hmm - wanting him to change unhealthy eating habits rather than making the healthy food and letting him eat what he prefers and call it his own business. I donīt have a final answer
We can inspire and aspire as two very different people. In the beginning of the 50tees.

    Nice blog! You really need to have a good partner to help you along the diet & exercise journey to be successful!

    This sounds like something I go thru. Finding me time is hard. It has always been doing for husband and kids. I now find that I get up early and do my exercise before I am expected to deal with others or I don't get in my exercise time!
Life....

    Thank you for your nice and thoughtful comments.
Whether I succeed in "being grown up" is another question. Canīt wait to see what Decriva has written..

    Putting yourself first is not being selfish in my opinion. If you don't have it altogether yourself, than how can you give to others? Being a good example without expectations for the other person to change is definitely challenging but also a better way to live to be happy. So good for you for making good choices in your life!!

    I agree with everything you said. Maybe, eventually, your healthy eating habits will rub off on him. It can be hard to be in a partnership when the two of you don't always have the goals or interests. I do hope you will put yourself first though. Maybe after living together for some time your healthy habits will get him to come around to the way you are living.

    wow, although it's not exactly the same your post today is very similar to mine.

I think it's wonderful what's happening. Good food and exercise is clearing our minds which seem to be resulting in us being better people for ourselves and by extension to others as examples.

We try so hard to take care of others but there is something to be said for taking care of ourselves. It's just my opinion but I think but setting the example, when they are ready or need to they will make changes for themselves that will make them better people without us poking them =)

Thin and thick people

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

My love is thin and I am sort of fat...
He says it is his fat burning that is different.
I have a feeling he moves more than I do.
Of course it is easier when you are slender to get out of the chair and son on..

I have bought a step tracker for me. I have got his yes to try it on him a couple of days. It can be interesting to see in figures what it is about.
He does not want it on the internet. That can also be my advantage. Anyway I will tell a little about this little challenge when days go by. I could make his account - MY GOAL emoticon

    Good luck on the step tracker! Please do give a review of it after you've been using it a while. I thought of getting on e at one point but then discovered my iphone has a great walking app so am going to try that instead.
