chocolate weaning seems to go well

Saturday, January 16, 2010      1 comments

I haven't bought any chocolate since about three days (exception: a gift for a friend), and the last two days I've been craving it like whoa, especially from midday onwards. _Especially_ especiall in the evening. So I have gobbled down p... Read more

Motivational low

Thursday, January 14, 2010      0 comments

Dang. I hate it when I have so much to do that i can hardly bring myself to do an of it. Studying, cleaning up my room, working out, keeping track of my calories... I missed out on underwater rugby which i really like a lot but I'm still n... Read more

Dang! Broke a streak.

Sunday, January 10, 2010      1 comments

And it wasn't even going that long: about 14 days of eating enough vegetables & fruits, and then I missed out. In a way, it's a matter of not checking goals like that at a given time: I just remember late in the evening that I'm still two servin... Read more

Slightly less boring entry

Sunday, January 03, 2010      1 comments

Okay, last free day. I snowed heavily last night so I shoveled a lot of snow both yesterday evening and this morning. It's great exercise but I'm still won't miss doing it on a daily basis. I'm doing okay with the streaks I started on ... Read more

Boring milage calculation for Walk to Rivendell

Sunday, January 03, 2010      0 comments

... you know, the thing were you track the miles you ran, walked, swam or stumbled and "use" them to do the entire walk from Hobbiton to Rivendell. My miles don't add up, or they add up differently every time. So this time I'll record the m... Read more

Yay! 10 000 fitness minutes in 2009!

Thursday, December 31, 2009      2 comments

Originally, I was aiming at 13 000 but I was so deplorably lazy in spring and summer (there were plenty of weeks where I didn't do a minute of cardio) that came December there really was no chance of reaching that goal. As it was, I had to rack ... Read more

Shame on me, especially the 09/April Me

Tuesday, December 29, 2009      0 comments

Really. I'm just skimming through my cardio minutes of 2009 and good grief. Capital Good Grief. There are weeks when I didn't even get onto my Elliptical Trainer and what looks like a month without strength exercises! Not that I'm not frittering... Read more

Walk to Rivendell fun

Monday, December 28, 2009      2 comments

That is one of the challenges I'll always get back to because it fits hand in glove with my Tolkien-addiction. And best of all: pretty detailed maps are to be found here:
/library/fantasy/11/maps.htm I'm... Read more

Saying No to temptation is getting easier

Sunday, December 27, 2009      0 comments

maybe it's because there are cookies and ice cream in huge supply - usually it's a bit more of a rarity for me, especially the ice cream. But now I'm getting surprisingly good at taking not even one cookie when an entire plateful is right b... Read more

120 minutes a day, 120 minutes a day...

Friday, December 25, 2009      1 comments

I'm still hanging in there. Even if it's lat at night and I only did 60 minutes so far (or less!) I get out to bike at least 20 minutes (which then somehow turn into 50) or I do strenght exercises to fill up the missing minutes. I still hav... Read more

hanging on to my fitness goals like whoa

Wednesday, December 23, 2009      0 comments

I'm determined to make it to 10 000 fitness minutes this year but since I was pretty lazy for part of the year I have to do 2 hours per day (every day!) for the next eight days. It's tough but I'm hanging on and I'm fighting the temptation ... Read more

Mid-winter walk

Sunday, December 20, 2009      1 comments

It was horribly time-consuming but it's probably the best way to work out: I took a 3 hour walk through snowy landscapes, interpunctuated by small fires and alpine-horn ... Read more

links, feeling silly and cardio

Saturday, December 19, 2009      2 comments

So what is calisthenics? Cardio is a bit difficult right now: I'm at my parent's home and there are no cardio machines here. Outside the temperatures are far under zero so biking for an hour isn't so inviting. So that leaves strenght ... Read more

tempted to fix fitness minutes. Also: tired to death.

Friday, December 18, 2009      2 comments

Well, not entirely "fix" maybe (I'm at 1140 as it is, so it's not exactly bad). Just track every minute biking, walking or taking stairs even if it's really part of my daily routine. The background: I won't make it to the 13 000 fitness min... Read more

whee, sparkpeople has new toys!

Wednesday, December 09, 2009      1 comments

Now there's a mileage tracker on my fitness site _and_ there's finally the option of doing strenght training every day but for different areas of the body. How wonderful! Up till now I always had trouble convincing the site that I want to do st... Read more
