Running faster

Today the pool was closed again. It seems like they just grab every little opportunity to close. If there is a little cloudy on the sky, they close. So, I couldn't swim today. This is difficult, first, it breaks my excellent exercise routin... Read more

In the loss range again

Thursday, September 08, 2011      3 comments

I have notice during my sparkjourney, that weight loss happens for me usually in a well defined eaten-burned range of calories. If I eat less, or burn more then necessary, I don't loose weight. And it takes quite some time to find the right... Read more

So now my daily exercise schedule is swimming from around 18:50 to 19:30, then take on my running gear right ahead and run 10K. It feels great, and I don't feel much tired when back at home. This is strange. Last week the pool was full of p... Read more

I was planning the whole day that after work I get out and head directly to the swimming pool. It was already 7pm, but I discovered the entry is free after 7, and I can swim until 8pm. This is great, as during the day I think the whole area is t... Read more

Difficult downhills

Wednesday, August 03, 2011      7 comments

I still feel incredibly hungry all day long. Maybe the short sleeps, or the increased exercise, or thirstiness due to the heat. Today I managed to stop at the upper limit of my calorie budget, but it is so difficult. I've eaten tons of vege... Read more
