Take life and enjoy it!

Not every day is a fun day. Sometimes we receive less positive news, going from Global warming to shootings in a school in the USA. And sometimes we receive news, that we don’t wanna hear… we found out that last week a ex colleague who retired 4 years ago, had passed away. She had become ill just after her retirement, and was diagnosed with cancer. They stopped all treatments in December, apparently nothing could be done anymore.

She was one of the colleagues who I worked with closely the first 4 years of my current job. She was a lovely, loving lady, short en small, but she had this huge charisma over her. One of those woman where you know from the start that you’ll get along just fine.

Together with a small group of colleagues we went to her funeral this week. It was emotional but at the same time a clear sign that we don’t have time to waste and to enjoy life to the fullest. Cause before we know it… things could take a turn for the worse.

Last year my foster mom died of breast cancer, my foster dad had a tumour removed from his stomach. I’m sure we all know several people around us who have or had a serious disease. We all get confronted with it these days, if we want it or not. It’s maybe why we should enjoy life more, and step out of our comfort zones now and then.

Monday again?

And a good morning to all of ya! It’s Monday again, the weekend has passed. It’s time to get back on track and get some work done… ✅

That’s how I should sound I guess. But at the moment I can’t be arsed. I did not sleep so well and now I feel tired. But work doesn’t wait does it. Oh well, I’ll survive. I’ll just have to get a early night in.

Was a good week and a good weekend.

Did our workouts on Tuesday and Thursday, and went for a walk at the beach on Saturday. Started using kettlebells instead of the dumbbells 💪 and I must say, I have the idea that they do more for me then the dumbbells. At least I feel it more in my body, specially the day after the workout.

We are still on track with the food, cooked 4 meals last night and frozen them. Other then that I’ll be joining the hubby this week eating some veggie meals.

Next Monday is a weight update again, and I’m actually kind of looking forward to it – just cause I’m curious to see how I’m doing.

Hope you All have a good week!

I feel proud!

Can I just say… I felt so proud last Friday!

Normally we always do – what we call “fat Friday”, where we go to McDonald’s, order pizza or some other type of fa(s)tfood. But really didn’t wanna give in so easily already. Also because for the hubby and me we use Friday evenings to go and get fries. Once a week, always on Friday.

So… did not wanna eat McDonald’s. my plan was to walk towards the sandwich bar in the town centre and buy me something there and walk back and eat. But for some reason, my colleagues were ok with not having McDonalds?! It doesn’t happen that often though!

So I went for a nice salad instead. Agreed, it was Brie cheese. But still better then fries with sauce, a cola and burger. 😉

Just wanted to mention how proud I was at myself for having a salad 🥗!
