rehab II

i'm sore in places i didn't remember i had muscles, like my butt. sure, i walk the dog, but not having been to the gym in (confession time) 10 yrs has done something to my rear end...

we've had fitness tests, let's just say there is quite a lot i could (and will!!) do for my overall health and fitness. yesterday we had a lecture on food and fitness. nothing new there, i'm so aware that chocolate cheesecake is sooo bad, but did you know that one beer (3,3dl) has the same amount of energy as 9 cubes of sugar?

or that a chocolate bar has the same amount of energy as 15 cubes fo sugar

when they put it like that... but i still don't want to know how many cubes of sugar there is in a chocolate cheesecake, you gotta treat youself once in a while.

although i had the tests yesterday, and went nordic walking before dinner, today was by far the most excercisefull day. nordic walking for 45 mins first thing in the morning, then streching for another 45, then i had a pedicure (blissfull!), circuit training for 45 mins, lunch, lectures for 2,5 h, indian scalp massage (which included pulling my ears, literally!), and a very humiliating experience of etnobaila (45 mins)... i don't remember the last time i've sweat out that bad. i should have known better, i have 3 left feet and no sense of rhythm, there was no way i was going to be able to move my feet, hips and hands all at the same time, and in beat... i went to the pools afterwards, swam a few laps and sat under a water fountain and got my shoulders "water-massaged". after all this i felt almost not hungry, but went to dinner anyway. i'm so ready to bed now.

here is the yesterday's sunset by the local lake

tomorrow everyone in our group will have InBody (link in finnish and norwegian only, sorry). it's a test in which a machine calculates (by electricity) what you are made of, how many % of your body is bones, fat, muscles, water, etc... it'll be a rude awakening. not sure if i'll share the results with you


  1. Olikos tuossa tuoremehulasillisessa tuo määrä sokeria vai koko törpössä? Uteloiduin. Ja oluessa tais olla tuo sokerimäärä? Nimittäin juodakko olutta vai tuoremehua. heheheh

  2. yhdessä lasissa on sokeripaloja vastaava määrä energiaa... yhdessä olutpullossa taisi olla 180 cal, ei tarvii monta juoda kun voi olla syömättä, jos pystyy! laitan sulle duunipostiin tarkempaa aineistoa, nyt kun olen itse tiedostettu tekemään oikeita valintoja... diipadaapa
