Health week 48:
Goal 1 (lose weight every week):
Weight result November 26th:. : +0.3 kg/+0.6 lbs
Goal 2 (eat healthy every day):
Monday: Pink, Tuesday: Purple, Wednesday: Pink, Thursday: Purple, Friday: Orange, Saturday: Purple, Sunday: ?
Pink (my favourite colour) day = good day. I only eat healthy food and exercised.
Purple day = okay day. I did eat healthy but didn’t exercise or I didn’t eat completely healthy but did exercise.
Orange day = I’m in trouble. I didn’t eat healthy and I didn’t exercise.
As soon as I start the new WW program I will change this goal in daily points totals.
Goal 3 (work-out 5 times a week):
Monday: Matt Roberts weight loss plan, week 1, training 1
Wednesday: Interval training, 4K run
Saturday: St. Nicolaasloop, 5K
Goals week 48:
1) Workout 5 times -> no, 3 times
2) Get at least 5 pink days -> only 2
3) Get 7 hours sleep a night -> yes every night
Cessie about your question if being busy makes me feel if I eat less healthy. The answer is no, I just don’t make the right choices for my dinners. My breakfast and lunches are always healthy. I need to go back to cooking more light dinners than I do now.
Still waiting for the new WW program to be launched online. I’ve read that it’s launched on December 5th. I’m starting with counting as soon as it’s online. Don’t see much use in working with the present program as it’s changing shortly.
St. Nicolaasloop Bunschoten
Yesterday there was this run. Start was at 5 minutes walking from home. When I got up it rained hard. So I’ve waited till 10 am and then the rain radar said it should be dry for at least half the run. So I did sign in at 10 am, went home and put on my running clothes and R. and I went there around 11 am.
Start was 11.10 am so we didn’t have to wait long.
There weren’t many competitors, 248 over 3 distances. It didn’t rain my entire run but there was a very strong wind (what’s new lately). I passed a few right at the beginning and from that moment I didn’t let anybody pass me. There were 3 ladies behind me and after half the run I heard them talking behind me so they were catching up with me. I thought to myself “no way they are going to pass me” so I ran a bit faster and stayed in front of them till the finish. I finished in 35.12 which is a new PR for me at a 5K run. I think I could have finished faster if there hadn’t been so much wind. And ……….. I didn’t finish last this time, there were at least 10 more people behind me.
It was a great run, my legs felt great and I was very happy with my finishing time. At the end we’ve got a can with a spiced cook in it.
As a reward I gave myself today off from working out.
Sinterklaas was the starter of the run:
Zwarte Piet did a run around the track too:
First round around the track, I’m the one with the blue hat:
Almost at the finish line, I always look terrible at the finish line 😆
The gift: a can with the cookie in it. The picture on the can is a picture from a run which is held in May in my village.
The Ultimate Diet Log:
Nutrition tip: Most fruit-flavoured yogurts have little or no fruit but plenty of added sugar. Try adding fresh, canned, no-sugar-added fruit to plain yogurt.
Fitness Factoid: Walking can lower your blood pressure and diabetes risk. In an 8-week-study, woman saw their systolic blood pressure (the top number) drop by 7 points and their diastolic (the bottom number) drop by 5 points after boosting their average daily step count from 5, 000 to 9,200.

Actually yesterday but still happy about it today: a new PR on my 5K.
To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.
