Spring in Northern Europe...
...isn't like spring in the US. We had a couple of days of sun, but for at least the past three days, it's been coat/hat/gloves weather. But even though the sky is grey, at least the flowers are blossoming, so there's something nice to look at... Read more
Back in the game!
I've finally finished all of my coursework, including my dissertation, so I can get back to focusing on my health! ... Read more
I've always been more of a follower than a leader, so I'm gonna take a cue from other people and set some goals for March. Here's the thing, though - I'm meant to be handing in my undergraduate dissertation in 2 1/2 weeks (the 20th), so I can't... Read more
Bad couple of days
I've had a bad couple of days. My fiance and I are going through a rough patch, mostly because we're both really stressed out and not dealing with it very well. He decided Monday that he's going to quit his job, even though he doesn't have ano... Read more
Not as bad as I thought
I thought I'd been really bad for a couple of days. I had a few really crappy meals, and I even had a slice of chocolate cake on Wednesday (what - am I supposed to overlook the individually wrapped slices of vegan chocolate cake that turn up ab... Read more
Mike and I spent part of the weekend with his mum. She's a nice enough woman (in general), but I've come to the conclusion that I just can't spend that much time with her. This is (at least) the 2nd weekend in a row that the two of them got in... Read more
Bad couple of days
I was working out yesterday and started to feel like I was either gonna pass out or throw up. I also only managed to have a smoothie and a cookie for lunch because the Thermos my soup was in imploded, so I'm sure that didn't help. I ended up n... Read more
Mondays are no good.
I've realised that I get almost nothing done on a Monday. It's the day I'm most likely to skip the gym, even though I try to get in my strength training on M-W-F. But if I don't go on Monday, I'll only get 2 days of strength training because I... Read more
Today's Saturday, so it's my day of eating whatever I want for at least one meal. I decided to make scones for breakfast. I figured they were pretty calorific, but I didn't realise they were *that* bad. But I made up for it with the rest of m... Read more
We got up early this morning because Mike is ill, so we decided to try to get to the open surgery (for those in the US, it's the hour that you can just rock up and see a doctor without an appointment). Well, we got there, but because he wasn't ... Read more
Back on track
I've had a good day today. Once I walk home, I will have gotten an hour and 50 minutes of cardio. I also managed to get a decent workout done at the gym (though I would've liked to have done more, but I had an appointment to get to).
I we... Read more
Feeling slightly derailed
My fiance was home ill yesterday, which made me start the day off on the wrong foot. I started out being late to the induction for that programme at the gym, so I didn't even get a work-out in. I had to take the bus almost everywhere, so I har... Read more
Good day so far
Starting the day off with oatmeal seems to be a good idea. As long as I pay attention to it and don't let it overflow in the microwave. Anyway, I ate around 9.30 and walked 35 minutes (2.4 miles) to campus, and I started getting hungry right a... Read more
Needs moar proteen
I guess this is kinda supplementary to yesterday's blog. Continuing to track my food, I've discovered that I'm the only vegan in the world who eats right and doesn't get enough protein. For instance, I've had 2 bowls of beany... Read more

Frustrating but enlightening
I thought I did really well with my food on Wednesday. I had a small breakfast, small lunch, light snacks, and soup for dinner. Until I entered everything into the recipe calculator. Then I realised that my small lunch was still several hundr... Read more
