I Know It's Working
I have noticed that when my body is not well nourished, when I get careless with my diet, I crave sweets ALL THE TIME! I understand that this happens when one is overfed but undernourished.
To break my love affair with sweets, I cleaned up... Read more
Running With My Son
Yesterday I convinced my 16 year old son to go for a morning run with me. It was a bit too early for him (5.30 am), but I'm so glad he said yes because I really enjoyed his company.
The poor guy struggled quite a bit, he had to stop four ti... Read more
I've Got To Stop The Stupid!
There are so many things that I keep doing and yet I know they are bad for me. How damn can one be. For example, my love affair with sweets. Sweets are bad for me on so many levels. For one, I have terrible teeth. And I make them worse by eating... Read more
How things have changed
Me, a few years ago: I'm feeling tired, I think I'll lie on the couch for a while.
Me, today: I'm feeling tired, I should go for a run.
Lying on the couch when I'm feeling tired makes me even more tired, lethargic and moody. Going for a r... Read more
You know you are obsessed when...
... you start tracking your runs on several apps!
I track my runs using both runkeeper and runtastic (I know it sounds a bit crazy, but aren't we all just a little bit crazy). Running is something that is not easy for me at all, it's never ... Read more
Happy Birthday To Me!
So today is my birthday, turning 45 and feeling awesome. Started off the day with a 6 mile run at 3.45 am. Why so early, you ask. Well, I knew the rest of the day was going to be crazy. I'm reporting back to work today after my annual leave. Aft... Read more
I see this every year...
During my run this morning, I realized that there were many runners/walkers along the trail. I could not help noticing their fancy workout clothes and their obviously new sneakers. They looked enthusiastic, like people with a definite plan. Some... Read more
Thank you and happy new year!
Thank you spark friends for praying for my sister. She is doing much better. Last week was physically and emotionally draining for me because of her sickness and the daily commute to her place was not easy. But I thank God for His healing grace ... Read more

I had a very confusing experience today - I met a lady that I had not seen for about three weeks. The first words out of her mouth were "You have grown fat!". Now that was totally confusing to me. I saw this lady just three weeks ago. I weigh my... Read more
Today has been amazing. Started off with an 8.13 mi run. Then later did a 10.13 mi walk with my sister. We talked and laughed and enjoyed each other's company. I'd hoped to do the walk with all three of my sisters but only one was available. She... Read more
Envy: desire to have a quality, possession or other desirable attribute belonging to (someone else).
I don't know whether the term 'runner's envy' actually exists, I came up with the idea on my way to work this morning. I passed several ear... Read more
You Do Not Qualify!

Because I am not a violent person which rules out punching someone in the face, I will pour out my anger in this blog...

NSV... And other thoughts
First things first...
I have a pair of trousers that I have not put on for quite a while. It gets forgotten easily since the material is not stretch and because of this, a few extra inches on the hips become very obvious. I decided to try them... Read more

DOMS and a run
I have not done fitness blender workouts for a long time. I decided to get back to them on Monday and yesterday I woke up with some serious but sweet soreness (Delayed onset of muscle soreness). The soreness persisted to today. This led to a bit... Read more
