27.5 km walk

Today I did something crazy (for me), I decided to go for a long walk, longer than normally, from home to Basel and back again, ending up with 27.5 km in 5 hours. More than I ever walked in one go. It sure helped that we had a lovely weather today, with 8 to 14 degrees Celsius, blue sky and not that windy. But the walk idea didn't come out of the blue; I had planned to do it. So…

Weight loss #5, review

It has not been more than a year since I started to change my life, I’m here thinking about living healthier, change in diet and do more sport. This is a short summary of what happened since then.

From 97kg to 85kg

My weight spiked to 97 kg in August 2014 and I then decided that things had to change.

Spartan Race München 2015

Trip report on my first Spartan Race ever and first one I failed to complete…

It’s been around 2.5 month since the race and I wanted to do this write-up several times but typical me, pushing it to “next week” again and again.

Anyway, in April 2015, we (myself and Mario) took part in the Spartan Race in München (Germany). Not only was it race time but also time to visit Mario, first time I got around to go to their place, so we had lots to talk about and all was very enjoyable.

Weight loss #3

This series of posts started with the Bet (The bet was that I could loose 5 kg within 2.5 month, and stay below that weight) and then the follow-up after I reached the goal. I can't continue with Phase #2 #3 as the bet is over and done (Still need to get paid in Pizza and beer). So introducing the weight loss series. Starting with part 3. Summary Early August I was at around 95.5 kg (Spiked at 97 kg)…

Bet won, phase 1

Weight loss / the bet Early August I did a bet with a friend of mine (see previous post here) that involved me dropping 5 kg in weight. I had until end of October for this. Well, now we are around one month into the bet, so I thought I better give an update. Short version: Bet won I have for a few days now been below 90 kg (lowest 88.8 kg) so I consider the first phase of the…

The bet: 5 kg, 2.5 month or 250 EURO

I'm almost never doing bets, never bet on horses, sport (Just Danish "tip") or other crazy events but that recently changed. Not that I will be betting on horses from now on but I did a bet with a good friend of mine. It's pretty simple: The Bet: I have to loose 5 kg in 2.5 month If I fail: He gets 250 EURO If I win: I get a pizza & beer (and I lost 5 kg). Time frame:…

The Beginner’s Habit Program & Sea Change followup

Earlier this year (The Beginner’s Habit Program & Joined Sea Change) I joined the Sea Change program, all started out fine, as often is the case when I start on something new. With the habits it went fine, got started on doing push ups every morning. I continued this beyond the first month and still do it from time to time but it is no longer a habit. Another habit that I started with was doing some arm exercise (had a small accident…

The Beginner’s Habit Program: Habit #1

As mentioned in previous post I'm going to follow the  "The Beginner's Habit Program"  to train to get new habits in place. I'm starting out very easy with a simple task. Introducing Habit #1 This will be to do 15 pushups each morning, the trigger will be when I wake up and get out of bed, so first thing in the morning will be the pushups. I'm keeping track of the frequency of me succeeding in a spreadsheet (google docs) but will…

Joined Sea Change

I was going through the latest newsletter I received from Zen Habits (I have to admit, I often forget to read them) and saw that Leo Babauta (guy behind Zen Habits) got another site/program called Sea Change; first I thought this was something rather new, but I was wrong, I got to read the newsletters when I get them… Do go to http://seachange.zenhabits.net to discover what it is all about or let me do a quick summary: The idea is that…

To Blog or Not To Blog

My last blog entry started with "About three years ago (end of 2007)" and I was like, oh, as time passes and then realized that since that blog entry there have passed almost 3 years. I have often been thinking that I really should start blogging again as I really enjoyed it earlier. Sometimes a subject/theme comes up and I think "I should really blog about this" and then nothing happens. Rather strange :-) But often I also think, what…
