Never say Never!
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
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
Temple Of Testosterone
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.

Going On By Starting Over Again - ugh!

weight loss happens in the kitchen!
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!

Everything is in the Eye of the Beholder!
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
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
Week one of 2016
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
Influencing the Future
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
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.
