Never say Never!

Friday, April 29, 2016      3 comments

It is probably ridiculous how much I am emotionally attached to getting back to running. There are so many activities one can do to stay fit, why does it have to be running? I don't know exactly why. Running is a family thing, so that is s... Read more

The marathon I didn't run

Sunday, April 24, 2016      5 comments

Today was the day of the marathon in Duesseldorf (Germany). I registered for it 9 months ago. I woke up early at 6 a.m. this morning dressed, attached my bib, and took the subway to the departure line. BF accompanied me. It was freaking co... Read more

In my last blog, I announced that I would get a gym membership for a few months. I hope it will help me get back in shape and let my foot heal before starting to run again. Well... on Monday night, I dropped by at the gym that is on my way... Read more

Sunday, April 10, 2016      5 comments

Going on by starting over... no, this is not a song title... although it could be one. It is what I feel like I have to do - again - ugh... The scale yesterday told me what I have been feeling in my trousers for a few weeks already. I am u... Read more

weight loss happens in the kitchen!

Saturday, January 30, 2016      7 comments

That is not the first time I am writing this in a blog, but it struck me again: Weight loss happens in the kitchen and now where else! Exercising might tone you up, make you look better and make you healthier and more fit, but weigh... Read more

Yesterday evening was the award ceremony of the running cup in which my sister, my dad and I participated in in 2015. We had a nice time and we all got an award in our age group. Read more

Everything is in the Eye of the Beholder!

Monday, January 18, 2016      6 comments

The last few days I have been thinking a lot about how your judgment on things really depends on you! Not only beauty is in the eye of the beholder, also success, a tasty meal and behavior in a social setting. Let me explain what I mean by... Read more

Heel Spur

Wednesday, January 13, 2016      5 comments

I finally got a doctor to take some pictures and an ultrasound of my right foot - the diagnose is probably a double heel spur - inferior and posterior. Yet another diagnose, after being told it was plantar fascitis and Achilles tendinitis. I gue... Read more

One week of the new year has already passed. How are you doing? Are you still keeping those new year's resolutions and sticking to your plans? I read some statistics about it and in average only about 8% of people are successful in a... Read more

I am not in a really great place (physically and emotionally) at the moment and I had some difficulties coming up with new and exciting goals for 2016. Nevertheless, I came up with a list of things that have been on my "I-would-like to do"... Read more

The Now has the Seed of Our Future

Thursday, December 31, 2015      7 comments

As I said yesterday, I want to evaluate first what was and what is before setting those goals for 2016. What was, was Yesterday and can not be changed anymore, only processed. Read more

Flashback 2015

Wednesday, December 30, 2015      5 comments

Before we start looking at where we want to go, we might want to see where we come from and where we are. That's at least what I feel like doing. Last year around this time I set some goals for 2015, I re-read them yesterday and was astoni... Read more

I have been chair-ridden for a week now and am not really enjoying it. My mood goes up and down a lot. I am trying my best to stay mentally positive. Santa brought me crutches yesterday to at least being able to jump around the apartment a littl... Read more
