Diet

It’s now close to half a year since I started with my training and food regime. It’s probably not much different from before, just more conscientious. I don’t write down what I eat every day (for lack of time), and frankly I don’t hit the gym as often as I would like, but I try Continue Reading

I write this post on a stop between Antwerp and Touquet. Although the weather has been fantastic (especially for Dutch standards), it was a cloudy Haarlem we left behind. Luckily weather prognosis looks splendid for where we are heading. It is a much needed break. Although I forgot my book, I did bring my note Continue Reading

I am not much of a dieter, as I love food. Having said that I started with a low carb diet years ago and stuck with it for most of a decade. Stopping with it wasn’t a conscious decision but in hindsight not a very good one. Not only did I gain some weight but Continue Reading

Watercress soup is one of my Continue Reading

However I took it down to an intense travel schedule and looked forward to a good night’s sleep. I knew Continue Reading

I didn’t get to do quite as much work as I intended too, instead I was consumed with Lego building for Sebastian, cooking and catching up with friends. I have to make a better effort tomorrow as I have quite a few things that I want to clear before Monday. Today I attempted a new Continue Reading

Sun is shining, work for the day is scoped out and fireplace is burning at a steady pace. What more could I ask for…nothing. And to top it all off I’m enjoying a cup of coffee and devouring a handful of tender, sweet figs (the local greengrocer sells them to my delight). Yes I am Continue Reading

It’s funny how people react differently when one attempts a diet. On the 19th of November, I had decided – I was going to get rid of those kilos I had piled on over the last 4 months getting off my sleep medication. It’s all of course recorded here on the blog. The only problem, Continue Reading
