Today the pool was closed again. It seems like they just grab every little opportunity to close. If there is a little cloudy on the sky, they close. So, I couldn't swim today. This is difficult, first, it breaks my excellent exercise routin... Read more
In the loss range again
Thursday, September 08, 2011      3 comments

I have notice during my sparkjourney, that weight loss happens for me usually in a well defined eaten-burned range of calories. If I eat less, or burn more then necessary, I don't loose weight. And it takes quite some time to find the right... Read more

So now my daily exercise schedule is swimming from around 18:50 to 19:30, then take on my running gear right ahead and run 10K. It feels great, and I don't feel much tired when back at home. This is strange. Last week the pool was full of p... Read more

I was planning the whole day that after work I get out and head directly to the swimming pool. It was already 7pm, but I discovered the entry is free after 7, and I can swim until 8pm. This is great, as during the day I think the whole area is t... Read more

Today: 35 minutes swimming in the local open air swimming pool. It was a challenge, I think I was the only person until now not staying in the evenings at the "Wellenbad". It was like a swimming Marathon in all the pools, but people instead ... Read more

I wrote this last Monday (15th Aug 2011), but it didn't go trough. Unfortunately Orange France's mobile internet was picky about websites, it just couldn't reach sparkpeople.com. So here it is now. --- Bonjour les amis! Greetings fro... Read more

I still feel incredibly hungry all day long. Maybe the short sleeps, or the increased exercise, or thirstiness due to the heat. Today I managed to stop at the upper limit of my calorie budget, but it is so difficult. I've eaten tons of vege... Read more

Today I was eating too much. The problem was two things: 1. For lunch I got double portion on my plate, even the others told it's a lot. It was 1100 calories, meat mixed with rice. Portion control - I already do this habit, so I think the go... Read more
