How Weight Watchers fits into Life

Losing Steam

Tweet I’m sorry I’ve been so quiet lately. I was really working hard on my goals for October and to be honest I feel like I did pretty good, not 100% consistent, but I really worked hard to get my running and my gym time in. I didn’t log my food on MFP every day…

What if there were no prize?

Tweet I know what you are going to say. “The prize is your health” “The prize is having a long and fit life” I know. I really do. But seriously some days I just think this is so hard. All this hard work. All the effort. Planning, scheduling, running, racing, working out, getting fit, being…

Wednesday Food Fail?

Tweet Ok not a total fail but as you all know I’ve been jet setting all over the place so I haven’t made a new recipe for nearly two weeks. I’m slowly getting back in my own time zone rhythm and I’ll resume the amazing and wondrous food fest postings next week. But I want…

Glory Days

Tweet The last few days have been A.MAY.ZING. The weather has been insanely perfect. Finally we can shed our coats, sweaters and scarves and hey- even socks (yes I live for the first day of the year where I don’t have to wear socks!!!) and actually have some lovely spring weather. I am not one…

Why I’m Still At It

Tweet In February I signed up with a personal trainer. To be honest I am not sure that I am a better person for it. But fine, I signed the contract, I’m in for 3 – 4 months. Part of the deal is that I give a specific diet a try even though I said…

Oh happy day!

Tweet What a month it’s been! In my quest to find balance one thing that’s fallen by the wayside is the trusty blog. It wasn’t my intention to not update but one has to have priorities, right? As you know I have been seeing a personal trainer and been on a different duet than “normal”…

Three Years

Tweet Today is my wedding anniversary. Three years ago the hubs and I got married in Las Vegas with just a few people who were able to come and join us. We didn’t officially invite loads of people on purpose. We just wanted it to be small, intimate. In fact how it turned out is…

I told you it was crazy right?

Tweet sorry for the silence, especially after that huge rant! after speaking to my PT, I did actually try the new diet again and was probably 90% successful from Saturday until Friday night when I had pizza. It wasn’t a breakdown it was actually just a choice that I made and enjoyed :) It’s not…

The Photographic Evidence

Tweet Of the last couple of weeks: It was snowy and cold: (not my bike) Park Musis (in Arnhem) I bought a new Garmin (which I haven’t used yet… dangit!) My new favourite breakfast (needs to be changed a wee bit for new “diet”) cottage cheese, Sabra “Pikant Aubergine” (it’s not spicy at all), cherry…

It’s true, it’s a story

Tweet So, Hey, how are you? Sorry I haven’t really updated lately. Even the 11×11 post was not meant to be published yet. Bloody hell I am not so great with this stuff am I? So a little update on the last couple of weeks: Gym: I’m going to the gym! I realize now I…
