The Results are In

Tweet I talked to my doctor today about my blood tests. The Good News: Nothing is wrong with me. I could say there is bad news. But there isn’t. Nothing is wrong with me. Am I sad, frustrated, and being driven completely mental by all of this, yes. But nothing is wrong with me. I…

Video Sunday

Tweet I went running this afternoon and was amazed at how much water there is everywhere, just a couple of kilometers from my apartment. I only made the video from the bridge between Westervoort and Arnhem. I wanted to stop and take photos along the farms but running was going so well, I just didn’t…

Determination

Tweet I hear this occasionally, that I have an amazing amount of determination and trust me I find that a very serious compliment. I used to think (because maybe I had been told many times) I was stubborn, rather than determined. Because I would get something in my head and no one would be able…

Frustration leads to Frustration

Tweet I hate to admit it, but I feel really, really glum. . . . . . . . As I tweeted the other day: All of you wonderful people out there, losing weight week after week, yes YOU, even the ones who don’t follow Weight Watchers “fit formulas” or whatever they call them in…

WOW that was AWESOME!

Tweet I just returned home from my 1/4 Marathon at Egmond aan Zee. I have to say, it was incredible! I am so happy that Donna asked me last month in London if I wanted to do this race, as she and her hubs would be coming over to participate. Being that I normally jump…

A Quarter Marathon

Tweet sounds amazing right? it’s a fancy way of saying 10.5 KM. 2 of that is on the beach. 3 will be up hills. The rest will be along the dikes and through the village. I think… That “blue” stuff you see on the photo? That’s the North Sea. I’m crazily running near the sea,…

30 Day I’m Not Going to Eat Any Work Crap Challenge

Tweet (I actually wrote this on Wednesday 5th of January, after having a stressfun-filled day at work Tuesday) There is something that pisses me off immensely about myself. Time and time again, especially when feeling stressed I eat things that are “in my face” on the work floor even though I have plenty of healthy…

Just a Quickie

Tweet I had an awesome post written up for today and I just ran out of time and couldn’t post it. I got some great help from my loverlies on Twitter and I just wanted to share how I’m working on turning a situation around. I’m proud to say I had no junk at the…

Positive Post: 1st Monday of the Year Edition

Tweet Usually Mondays are fairly tough to get cranked up. A typical Sunday night is to struggle with sleep and/or wake up every few hours and then when it is actually time to get up, there is more struggling taking place. Last night was no exception but I had already had it in my mind…
