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
Free Time Blue Screen of Death
Tuesday, November 10, 2009      1 comments

Right, for the non-geeks: Blue Screen of Death describes a fatal computer melt-down or the moment when your entire brain shuts down although you're still conscious. It feels slightly like that now... I could just curl up in bed with high-ca... Read more
Made the last exam
Monday, November 09, 2009      1 comments

I just made it through the last exam, consisting of three subjects. I was okay on two of them and, if I say it myself, word perfect on the third. It helped that I liked the subject a lot. And now I have all the free time that I was yearning... Read more
Yo ho ho... three days left
Friday, November 06, 2009      1 comments

It's three days to the next exam and I'm being a bit lazy, with very little excuses for it: I like both subjects and I have a clear idea of what to learn. But I still have almost a fear of sitting down and working even though there's nothin... Read more
Being disgruntled about one-letter sparkpeople discussions.
Wednesday, October 28, 2009      1 comments

Be warned, this could turn out a case of being a spoil-sport and maybe hurt vanity. But what the heck. I saw a very interesting food documentary a few days ago and of course rushed of to sparkpeople to discuss it on the message boards. ... Read more
Dang. Broken Yoga Streak
Wednesday, October 28, 2009      0 comments

I managed to do yoga daily for almost 20 days and now I broke the streak. What a rotten ***** ! I know, I know, still very good to do yoga daily, shouldn't stop doing it and so on. It's just that one of my goals on a 101-things-in-100... Read more
Yay Elliptical Trainer going Frankenstein! I'm very proud of my creature.
Sunday, October 25, 2009      0 comments

... although by rights it should have been fixed together in the tower of a sinister castle on some ragged mountain. In a stormy night, obviously. Well, part of it was done in a small cellar which might just pass for a dungeon. Here goes: ... Read more
Laziness be gone
Tuesday, September 22, 2009      0 comments

Eek, I've been very lazy about sparkpeople in the last weeks and not much better with studying. Lots to do! But just you wait till I got a picture of what happened to my Elliptical Trainer. Yay.... Read more
Again: Under water rugby
Friday, July 24, 2009      0 comments

It's still oodles of fun and still very scary and exhausting. It'll get expensive too, if I want to train in the next two months, because I'll have to buy equipment - flippers,... Read more
