Cauliflower pizza crust review
Sunday, January 12, 2014      2 comments

Well, I knew getting the water out of the cauliflower was important, so I put it in my food processor and then it went through two separate towel wringings. So far so good, right? Then my brain stopped working and I added fresh mozzarella to it.... Read more

...a colleague says 'maybe it's time you get a chest x-ray'. Right, so 4 days into my detox I got my 4th cold in 3 months. BAH!!! Said colleague claims detox can do that to you. Admittedly, it wasn't as bad as the other 3 and I recovered q... Read more

Sunday: For breakfast I had some cashews (ick) and milk. I bought various nuts, trying to convince myself maybe my taste buds have changed. Not so much. For lunch I made couscous salad with brocoli, carrot, sun-dried tomato, feta and m... Read more

Breakfast was the low sugar apples and cinnamon oatmeal. I know, I know. Not very Atkin's friendly. Whatevs. Better than many of my past breakfast choices I assure you. Lunch was more of the BLT salad. I use 'facon' instead of the original ... Read more

They say something like 60% of New Year's resolutions fail. I'm here to be different, as usual. So yeah... I pretty much gained most of the weight I lost back. And mostly I'm okay with having gained some of it back. What I'm not okay with i... Read more

I hate exercise. If it were up to me I'd eat all day and move as little as possible. Unfortunately I was not blessed with genes that will allow me to maintain a healthy weight with that kind of lifestyle. So about 4 times a year I get on th... Read more

Nike is right: just do it. It is so cliche. And I don't own anything Nike. But this morning I got up and felt blah. I had a cup of coffee and a bottle of water. And then I slowly put on my running gear while listening to U2 360. 'I know I'll go ... Read more
My dog is a very good dog

So, today on the tread mill, I was just getting into my run when I saw my dog, Nynke, lie down on her bed next to the treadmill. She usually does this to be near me, even when I am running. Anyway, I am already lucky that she does that instead o... Read more

Just got in a 25 minute run. Yeah me! I worked on speed for a month or to, working up to 9km/hour and now I want to work on distance and stamina for a while. Which means running more than 20 minutes. So that's good. Plus, as I was turtling... Read more

... on my treadmill this morning. I'm reading 'Born to Run' about ultra distance runners in Mexico. They run on thin sandals. I wasn't convinced, despite all the anecdotal evidence, until I read this: "Your foot’s centerpiece is the arch, t... Read more

I think I've shaved 6 minutes off my time. I just ran 3.6 km in 30:40. Back in May I ran 3.6 km in 36:15. Sooooooooooooooo...according to my calculations I'm much faster. I do take a week or 2 off every few months, which helps keep me motiv... Read more
