WRD – Week 33 Noah Called

Tweet Week 8 of 16 Chicago Marathon training is a done deal. I’m halfway and I feel about a quarter ready to take on the distance. I’m not going to dwell too much on the negative that I feel, because I know it does not help me. Pushing onwards. You know how you shouldn’t compare…

Tweet Don’t really have much out of the ordinary to report this week. We are progressing along with marathon training. Week 7 is in the books! I tried to do my training as close as I could to what was on the schedule, but there were a few changes here and there. Plan vs. Actual…

Tweet During my rock’n’roll weekend my friends M and Babette and I took the opportunity to do some fun sight-seeing in Dublin by bike! I’ve done bike tours in Berlin, London and now Dublin. To be honest, because I’ve been a couple times in Berlin it gave me the confidence later to bike by myself…

How do you know you have really changed?

Tweet It’s great to have the revelation that you have changed. I mean we all talk about “lifestyle change” yadda yadda yadda – we KNOW that we have to change so much about ourselves and we THINK we have… until we lose the weight and gain it back again for whatever reason. OR we don’t…

September: That’s a Wrap!

Tweet 79.2 KG That’s what the scale told me this morning. My first thought was to curse at it or throw it out the window but it only took a couple of seconds to come back to reality. You see, I did this, not the scale, and I wouldn’t throw myself out the window now…

A Look Back and a Look Forward

Tweet Wow you guys, September is already here and I hardly even caught my breath from returning from my US holiday! It was a bit of a struggle to get in a groove again, plus I was a bit sick, plus very busy/stressed at work, but we made it! We are entering my favourite month…
