As you can see I’ve got a new blog lay-out. Time for a change as this blog is changing because of a new project I’m starting but mostly because of a new attitude.
The biggest change is the title of my blog. I’ve changed it in “Dutch girl is healthy”.
I’m turning 44 next week and in the past decade I’ve tried so many diets and nothing really worked. I did manage to lose 10 kg (22 lbs) in those 10 years. I’m done with dieting but even more done with the whole weight loss thing.
All I want to do as of today is to live a happy, healthy life. I am healthy, I run and exercise 5 times a week and I love my life. Most of the times I’m very happy with the way I look. My body is stronger than it has ever been in my life. Why waist 10 more years focusing on a number on the scale, it’s all about how I feel. I haven’t reached my goal weight yet and maybe I never will but for now I’m perfectly fine with that. I will eat as healthy as possible and keep running and do my workout DVD’s.
I don’t want to get healthy anymore, I already am.
I saw Julie & Julia Thursday night and I loved this movie. Those of you who have seen it will know that Julie cooks all recipes from a cookbook from Julia within a year and blogs about it. It inspired me and made me think about a cooking project for myself. I’m still working on the details but all will revealed in my Friday’s post.
Friday night we had a wedding to go to. A friend of R. whom he knows for over 30 years got married. He’s over 50 and this is his second partner but his first marriage. The party was a traditional Dutch wedding party: music and dancing. His wife sang a Dutch song for him, translated title: I love you. It made him cry but it made me cry too. It was so sweet to see and she’s a good singer too.
But, as you know me, it wasn’t an early night. This time I was in bed at 1 am but it was worth it, it was a beautiful wedding.
Yesterday it was Mother’s Day (which, of course, you all know) and I bought chocolate at a chocolate store for both our Mom’s. It look like a bouquet but it was made of paper with chocolates in it. You can’t see it very well because of the plastic wrapping paper but it looked very pretty.
I bought 10 chocolates for us too because this shop is really expensive. But the chocolate is sooooooo good, it was worth the money. It has been in my village for almost a year and I had never been there before.
