I don’t have much to say this week, it’s just a normal week where nothing much happens. The weekend should be fun because Sunday morning Bella and I are going to do a walking event again. This time we are going for 10K. Of course I’m going to take pictures of the walk and share it with you.
Sunday evening I have a dinner date with R. We have another Groupon deal for a 5 course dinner.
This walking thing with Bella has got me interested and I looked more into this. There are a couple of long distance walking paths through Holland and there are paths that are called region trails. I found 3 that I find interesting and I ordered the books with the routes. You can’t do a path in one day because the total length varies from 160K (100 miles) to 400K (250 miles) but you can do a part of it every time. Daily routes are 10K to 25K (but I think you can break them up too). I want to do 1 trail every month or so and switch between the 3 routes. Of course if I do this I will make lots of pictures which gives you more impressions of my country. But first we are going to do next Sunday’s walk.
Here are some pics of our walks from Monday till Thursday. Have a great weekend!
Chalean Extreme Push Circuit 2, 35 minutes. Trained mostly arms and legs today. Every exercise was done 8 times at a very slow lifting pace. Tough one!
Insanity Pure Cardio & Cardio ABS, 57 minutes. Insanity is tough! I can’t keep up with the pace (yet) so I do the exercises in my own pace. I do like the program though, it gives a good sweat. I skipped the warm up for the ABS workout because at that point I was still warm and sweaty. Great workout!
You might wonder what happened to my running. Well once again I am having a hard time to get motivated to run. But I’m going to suck it up and just go tomorrow for a long run.

Three recipes from this book: pork chops with pesto (also made myself), grilled green asparagus with olive oil and sea salt. We had baked potatoes with it. Delicious meal.
Tuesday June 11
The pics of the next 3 meals are not sharp. Need to work on that. Sorry.
A stew of chicken with mushrooms, bacon, leek and garlic cooked in wine and bouillon and some cream. We ate basmati rice as a side dish. This was a new recipe and it was delicious.
Wednesday June 12
Burrito’s with beef, chorizo, yellow pepper, onion and tomatoes with a topping of sour cream and guacamole.
Thursday June 13
First recipe of this book and a classic: spaghetti carbonara.
Because there are so many recipes in this book, I am going to try to make at least 1 recipe every week from this book. That’s no punishment for us because we love Italian food.
