Trying to figure it all out.
Will be seriously cutting down on the coffee. One cup a day should be enough. Coffee apparently messes up the blood sugar levels, which results in food cravings. And as we all know, food cravings result in grabbing into the fridge or cupboard for something tasty, not something that just fills the stomach or kills the hunger. And we also know that tasty is hardly ever very healthy.
Next to that, I find myself craving carbs after dinner as well. This is most probably the result of a messed up sugar level as well. After I've eaten the sugar levels lower too fast which causes a new hunger. Well, let's see what we have in the cupboard... Ooh, chocolate! Ooh, cookies! Ooh, cheese!
As some of my old motivators around here know, I have hypotheroidism. My thyreoid gland works too slow, which is one of the causes of my metabolism being too slow. If I workout more, I should lose weight more easy, but that theory was proven wrong by me. Wheter I sit on my butt all week, or I ride 250km a week on my bike, my metabolism just handles every situation the same: Like a rastafarian. No man, just relax!
So today my life got a twist. Coffee got kicked out the door, and was replaced by water. First days will be hard as my body doesn't know what to do with clean fuel intake yet. I kept walking to the toilet and back to the office all day, so at least I got my workout
In about a week my body will get more used to the water and I will be going to the toilet a bit less. Though, my body will be cleaner than before which is good.
This Friday I will be doing an 80km bike ride in the afternoon. I'm looking forward to it, the weather is supposed to be great. About 5C and sunny, I'm gonna have fun
It's been over a week since I last rode my bike so it's about time as well. I need the workout... On April 2nd I will be ride the "Ronde van Vlaanderen", simply translated: "Tour of Flanders". I've chosen to do a 75km bike ride through Belgium with a friend which will be my first real ride. About 5000 riders will be attending the ride so I don't want to look like an idiot climbing the Belgian hills on the bike
There's a lot to discuss here right now. Life's not been good to me lately. Wife's been in an artificial menopause for about half a year which messed up my life as well as hers. Luckily that should be over soon, and maybe a new kid will follow. There's still hope, as we would love to have a little brother/sister for Hannah, who's already turning three this April.
So let me end this strange speech of mine by saying: Life's not always what we hoped it would be, but we should, and can make the best out of any situation God's putting on our paths. After all, God will never give us more than we are able to handle...
