50 Push-ups
400m Run
50 Sit-ups
400m Run
50 Squats
400m Run

My workout:
I was a bit short on time today so decided to not go to the box, but do the workout at home. I invited Michelle and Linda to join me and by miracle they both did. We did the workout at the playground in front of my house. Their kids joined us haha. Put the rings up so we could do ring rows instead of pull ups. I think the run around the playground was only about 200m though. My time was 17 m 12 seconds. It felt pretty good. Fun to workout outside with friends :). Kyan was joining me and Michelle on the pushups. He’s so cute!!

My mood:
Awesome. Still can’t decide on firefighter though. A couple of times I wanted to send the email saying yes. But then I didn’t. Now asked for the phone number of the guy so I could postpone a bit more.. will have to call him tomorrow. I really don’t know what to do!!!

My food:
Breakfast: 2 slices of brown bread with chocolatespread
Snack: 1.5 advocaatreep
Lunch: 1 cracker with peanutbutter and mixed fruit
Snack: bowl of nibb-it
Dinner: 2 chicken crispy and mixed veggies
Drinks: 1 can of diet coke, 1 black tea, water
Supplements: vit d (1), fish oil (2), magnesium (2)

Day 8 – Loads of deadlifts

July 4, 2016


Deadlift 5-3-1

For time:
30/25 Cal Row
30 Toes-to-bar
30 Deadlifts, 102,5kg/70kg

My workout: 
For the deadlifts I did 5 x 65kg, 3 x 75kg and 1 x 80kg. I did try 85kg as well, but couldn’t get it up. I’m close though.

For part B, I scaled the ttb to knee raises and did the deadlifts with 45kg. I’m pretty sure my time was 6m52, but it might have been 7m52 though… I should write these things down right away.

After the workout I cooled down on the assault bike for 5 min (26 cal).

My mood:
Tired from the busy weekend, but other than that real good. Felt a little bit nauseous again after the workout, but only a tiny bit and could easily ignore it.

My food:
Breakfast: 2 slices of brown bread
Lunch: brown bun with filet americain and an egg + small green salad with tomato and cucumber
Snack: nectarine
Snack 2: banana
Dinner: half a pizza, whole bag of ringlings crisps and 1.5 advocaatreep :(
Drinks: water, green tea and 1 can of diet coke
Supplements: vit d3 (1), fish oil (2), magnesium (2)

Went wel up to dinner ;).

Day 7 – Bounce around

July 3, 2016

My workout:
Again no workout.. as today was my sister’s bachelorette party. We picked her up at 10am for a day full of fun. We did a Burlesque workshop (was supposed to be a pole dancing workshop, but the organisation messed up). And after that we went to a “bouncy castle” festival, which is basically a big area full of ‘wipe out’ type inflatable courses. It was so much fun! I might not have worked out, but going though those “assault courses” was just as tiring sometimes ;).

My mood:
Good overall. I had a bad headache throughout the day, so did need to pop a lot Paracetamol. Headache never really went away, but it was manageable. I did feel some fear of claustrophobia at the festival, as a lot of those bouncy castle have small areas that you have to climb through. I didn’t let it stop me from taking any though. And didn’t have any trouble during. It’s just the anxiety beforehand. I truly believe it will get less and less every day. One thing I also noticed very badly is that after some activities, which I was a bit nervous for (jumping off a high ramp for example) the shakiness in my muscles was very noticeable.. I wonder if it’s something to do with blood pressure..

My food:
Breakfast: 2 slices of brown bread with chocolatespread
Snack: Eat Natural protein bar with peanuts and chocolate
Lunch: hamburger and fries
Dinner: falafel wrap
Drinks: water, 1 prosecco, 1 coke, 5 or 6 beer

I didn’t get drunk.. but can’t have a bachelorette without a little drink. Writing it up the food wasn’t so bad though. Better than most days at home :p. Forgot my supplements again.

Day 6 – Wedding steps

July 2, 2016

My workout:
I didn’t work out this day as I had a wedding to go to. The wedding was in Goirle, which is pretty much as far as you can take me within Holland, as it’s at the border to Belgium. I was invited all day by my lovely friends so left here at noon and didn’t come hum until 1:30 at night. It was super nice though. But ya.. no exercise at all (apart from a lot of walking and dancing :)).

My mood:
Very good. What’s not to like when at a wedding. Had to hold back a tear once or twice, but that’s just because love is so beautiful :). I did feel a little anxiety when arriving. As I was meeting my friends who know about my little anxiety issue, but that soon went away.

My food:
Breakfast: 2 slices of brown bread with chocolate spread
Lunch: a big mac
Snacks: ham, cheese, cucumber
Dinner: BBQ, loads of meat
Dessert: 2 mini cupcakes
Snacks: bitterbal and frikandel
Drinks: water, tea, 1 prosecco, 2 beers

Let’s say that we were well fed at the wedding. Since it started after lunch I went for a big mac.. so not such a good day health wise. I think I forgot to take my supplements. Might have taken d3 and fish oil in the morning, but can’t remember. Definitely forgot to take magnesium.

Out of the hole – day 5

July 1, 2016



  • Bench press 10-10-10-10-10
  • Weighted ring dips 5-5-5-5-5

My workout:
Bench press: 20kg – 25kg – 30kg – 35kg – 40kg

With 40kg I failed on the last rep, so only did 9 reps. Didn’t have time to try at 37.5kg. But doubt I would have made it. The 40kg started to get heavy real fast, quite pleased I made it through 9, but was really spent after that.

Ring dips: 4 – 3 – 3 – 2 – 2

Without any extra weight. I’m heavy enough :p. Ring dips go so quickly.. was a bit disappointed that I couldn’t stick to 4’s or 3’s.. but I was the only girl that could do more than one so I guess it’s not that bad :).

My mood:
Very good :). I went to get some blood taken this morning. Got a bit nervous for that. During it I had to really focus on keeping my heart rate down.. which I guess you can’t, cause focusing on it just makes it worse. I did feel more tense that I normally am during these things, but it wasn’t unbearable and managed to get through it ok. After that it was just a nice day without any anxiety.

My food:
Breakfast: two slices of bread with chocolate spread
Lunch: half a grilled chicken with half a bag of nibb-it
Snack: m&m’s
Dinner: one cracker with cheese
Drinks: water, 1 green tea, 1 can of diet coke
Supplements: vit d3 (1), fish oil (2), magnesium (2)

Ugh. not good at food still. Other than the food I’m starting to feel amazing again. Really starting to feel the happy CrossFit flow :D.
