Hello my dear friends, everybody happy that 2010 has started and everything goes back to normal?
I know I am. I love the holidays but I also love being back to normal days. We had a quiet night at home on New Year’s eve. I did eat a bit more than usual and drank a bottle of Prosecco all by myself but overall I’m happy how my eating went during the holidays. Yesterday we had to visit family to wish everybody a happy New Year and that included more food but today it’s back to normal.
How to continue? Well I will be back on counting WW points on Monday. This doesn’t mean I let myself go today or tomorrow but my WW week starts on Monday. I took the day off working out today because I have to clean up a lot of stuff in my “office” so I can start with a clean desk on Monday. My workout year will start tomorrow.
I intend to make lots of pictures this year, not only food related but also of my life, things I do etc.
Further I have to watch my expenses, I have a habit to spend money too fast and too much. So my first goal on this point is not to buy anything that I don’t need in January/February. My last purchase was this morning: I bought a thermal running shirt because it’s really getting cold the coming weeks here and a belt to put on my upper arm where I can keep my phone and keys in during running.
And last but not least, when I started this blog I’ve been reserved in telling how I feel, that’s just my nature, most people around me don’t really know how I really feel. I’m a positive person but that doesn’t mean I don’t have bad days where nothing goes as planned. So I am going to share my feelings with you and tell you more about my daily life and the things I do so that this won’t become a blog with just stats on workouts etc.
So I did participate in the Sylvestercross last Thursday and boy oh boy it was so cold. It was a heavy run, I had to run through loose sand, through the woods where the paths were still frozen and sometimes very slippery. And there were many participants and some points of the route were very small so I’ve been pushed away by people sometimes. After all: I’m a slow runner. I did a 3K run instead of the planned 6K because the route was heavy and it was cold and I ran it in 22.22. Afterwards I felt so good, this was a perfect way to close a perfect year.
I’m waiting for a picture that was made during the run, I’ll post it when I have it. R. had an appointment and couldn’t go with me so right now I have only a picture of me when I got home (Roussy joined me on the picture). I’ve got a tile as a reward for participating.
What’s for dinner:
Only 1 picture of the food we ate at New Year’s Eve.
The Ultimate Diet Log:
Nutrition shocker: Worldwide, the number of people who eat too much has surpassed the number of people afflicted by hunger.
Food Factoid: Carotenoids, pigments found in colourful fruits and veggies, may help prevent heart disease and cancer and boost immunity. Rich sources includes carrots, sweet potatoes, broccoli, collard greens, mangoes, pineapple, peaches and oranges.
2010 has started, bring it on, I’m looking forward to it.
Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.
