Perspective

For many years “Coach” and I have been good friends and we both had our ups and downs… weight-wise. Throughout our journey there was one thing which never changed: Our support for each other and the motivation that came with it. At some point over these years I started calling him ‘Coach’ because he always did, what a coach is supposed to do. He motivated me and he inspired me and I knew he meant what he said because he was there too. He actually had bigger ups and bigger downs weight-wise than I. He always knew what he was talking about.

We now want to share our experience with you and hope that you will find some kind of inspiration and maybe even share your thoughts, struggles or successes with us here. – Momma & Coach

runnerI felt like my morning run was going well. I was running at a good pace, breathing calmly, the headwind wasn’t bothering me. I had run for about 10km, I knew I was going to run another 8 and I was feeling pretty good. That’s when I noticed this younger guy running right by me about 5 or so meters over.

Many people report clearness of thoughts and clearness of mind while running. Effects described as worries figuratively being left by the wayside while the runner moves forward and achieves this state of calmness devoid of stress and day-to-day pressures.

Update

Thought I give you a little update on my journey to a healthier and fitter self.

The week did not really go according to plans. It already started with not sticking to my detox days on Monday and Tuesday, due to all sort of excuses. Oh well… Although I did not manage to start the week with those detox days, I managed to stick for most of the remaining week to a healthier eating approach.

The Truth

And here it is: The truth. I am a Taurus! You did not see this coming, right? But there is more, just wait…

As a Taurus I love the good things in life. Good food, good company, good wine, good times. Picture a Taurus. What a massive creature. And therefor I am sometimes a bit lazy and “heavy to move”. I can be so stubborn, which can be a bad thing but also a good thing.

A good thing because I can stick to things. Stuff that I really want to achieve. I will do it. But I need to have my mind set to it. I will pull through it, the way an ox pulls a heavy object and I might as well run you over if you are in my way. I don’t want to, I do not mean to but it just might happen.

Bigger! Better! Faster! More!

It’s a bit of a thing with this workout routine.

Exercising plays a big role in my life. Most of the time I love it, sometimes I hate it and I sort of always do it.

And not only because I was a bit naughty on the weekend but also because I just feel like it…
