Everybody enjoying the long Easter weekend? I know I am.
But ……. (there’s always a but isn’t it?) I ate too much on Saturday and Sunday.
I’ve been thinking about this for at least a week now. My weight loss stands still right now. Small part of that is because I did train less the past two weeks.
But the bigger part is that I’m slipping back into old habits foodwise. I do fine during weekdays and lose some, then the weekend starts and I eat too much and I gain which I have to lose during the week and then it all starts again. It’s a circle that I have to break. I really need to work on my eating habits otherwise I won’t lose the last 6 to 9 kg’s I want to lose.
So I’ve decided to take this 1 month at a time and try to change 1 or 2 bad habits into healthy ones during the month and if I succeed I will add a new bad habit. This means for April:
- Drink wine only at special occasions (I love a good glass of wine which basically means I drink one bottle every weekend and we all know alcohol is a calorie bomb).
- Have only 1 snack moment a week (preferable during the weekend) and 1 piece of dark chocolate a week.
- Eat fruit or vegetables at every breakfast, lunch and dinner.
I’ll start with this tomorrow for the rest of this month (have to finish my bottle of wine 🙂 ) and will keep track of this for myself and get back on this to you by the end of the month.
I didn’t run yesterday, the weather was really bad here. It rained hard most of the day. But when I got up this morning: a clear blue sky and sunshine. So I put on my running clothes and went for a morning run. And it was great, the run itself went smoothly, sun shined my whole run and there was not much wind. I need more of these days.
Weather: 8 ˚C/46 degrees, sunny, not much wind.

What’s for dinner:
Saturday dinner with my friend. Starters: ravioli filled with cheese.
Main: mixed grill with onions and garlic sauce
Dessert: cheesecake with raspberry compote and lemon ice cream.
Yesterday: pork meat with pepper sauce and potatoes from the oven, didn’t want vegetables.
When it comes to eating right and exercising, there is no “I’ll start tomorrow.” Tomorrow is disease.
