Writing rather than ordering delivery
Wednesday, July 17, 2019      1 comments

I need to write. Because if I don’t, I’ll order food delivery. I am not kidding, I might be rambling, but its better this than ordering food. I am not a therapist, but there is no denying that I feel low right now. I am upset, and tired, and... Read more
Lunch temptations
Tuesday, July 16, 2019      3 comments

I brought my lunch to work, but I had to go to the pharmacy during lunch time. There is a new Thai restaurant near it and I was very tempted to order a Pad Thai. I was very very tempted. But I didn’t. I feel pretty good about it. Ordering ... Read more
Mornings are harder than afternoons
Monday, July 15, 2019      1 comments

I’m hungry in the morning. The afternoon and evening is often OK. If I calculate, there are more hours of ‘not eating’ between lunch and the evening meal, but it’s really the morning after breakfast that is hard for me. Around 10:30 until noo... Read more

It’s the food that will get me. I don’t think low impact exercises will be a problem right now. I can walk on my way to work, I can swim near by and I can do light cardio at home. For now at least. There will be some low motivation day, but ... Read more

Still on track. Yesterday I ate as usual but today was different. I had a breakfast and lunch at work organized for a workshop. I tried not to overindulge. But it was still food that had obviously a lot of oil and had only one dish of vegeta... Read more
The hazards of walking
Tuesday, July 09, 2019      1 comments

I fell. I decided to walk briskly to the next station instead of waiting at the nearest one. I felt pretty good about my decision. I did not run, nor was it is a ‘power walk’, but it was a quick pace. I walked past 2 guys and then, I don’t k... Read more
One more day

Well, let’s face it, I felt hungry in the morning. Around 11am, I was really hungry and I didn’t want to eat my one snack. I was also hungry when I arrived home in the evening, but since it was nearly 8pm, I had a good reason. I drank a lot o... Read more
2nd day
Sunday, July 07, 2019      2 comments

OK, so the second day started with some bad and some good feelings. I calculated the calories for the bread I made yesterday and decided to divide each loaf into 8 parts. That means that in a week I only need one loaf, not two as I usually do ... Read more

Well hell... This is my first breakfast back on track and it tastes horrible. It’s my fault though. I like smoothies in the morning, so yesterday when I went to the grocery store, I got me some frozen fruits. I usually put in my smoothies fro... Read more

Well, let's face it, I had a lot of disappointment this year regarding employment. I had my hopes up way too many times for it to be healthy for my brain, my body and my mental state. And today? Well, I just got the news that I did not get an... Read more
