Well Christmas is over. We’ve had two great days. On Christmas Day my mom stayed with us and had dinner with us. Yesterday, second Christmas Day, we went to my mother in law in the morning and had coffee over there. After that we spend a quiet afternoon at home and had dinner together.
I didn’t count anything during these 2 days and I did eat more than I should have but less than other years. I also didn’t workout on both days but did it Thursday and this morning. Today I’m back on track, started counting my points again this morning.
Next week I still have a vacation, plan is to workout in the mornings. We don’t have many plans this week except Tuesday night when we’re going to the theatre.
Thursday it was a beautiful day so I decided to run in the afternoon instead of Christmas morning and I wanted to try my new Garmin. Unfortunately I had my settings wrong, I had GPS on off and auto lap off so no stats this run. I ran 4.5K/3.1 miles in 31.25 and it was a good run.
This morning I didn’t feel like running but I did go. I finally got my Garmin at the right settings and wanted to try it out. There was a strong wind and it’s funny to see that the rounds where I had the wind right to the front were my slowest ones. I’m going to post my running stats from now on. I can share my stats of Garmin connect with WordPress. If you click on the link you’ll see my running stats of today.
What’s for dinner:
On Christmas day we had breakfast together.
For starters a salad with smoked chicken and pear.
Main course: tenderloin with cranberry-port sauce, a “pie” of puff pastry, potatoe and mushrooms and cooked pears.
Dessert: Pannacotta with cranberries.
Yesterday “gourmetten”. Don’t know if you know this or if it’s typical Dutch but you baked your meat and vegetables on a grillplate on the table.
The Ultimate Diet Log:
By the numbers: 96: Percent of lettuce composed of water. 85: Percent of an apple composed of water. 60 to 85: Percent of fish that is water. 36: Percent of bread that is water. 2: Percent of potato chips that is water.
Food Factoid: Just because a food package features a picture of a fruit doesn’t mean there’s any of that particular fruit in the product. Those chewy bits of fruit in some brands of “strawberries and cream” instant oatmeal are actually dehydrated apples dyed red.
Nutrition tip: When assembling your dinner plate, try this visual: half your plate should be veggies, one-quarter should be whole grains, and one-quarter should be protein.
After a great Christmas I’m happy things are getting back to normal.
Remember, the feeling you get from a good run is far better than the feeling you get from sitting around wishing you were running.
