European Adventure

Well, I made it back.  I was away for work.  I had to go to the Netherlands and Amsterdam.  I was a little leary about going because I was not sure what I would face when it came to eating.  I was going in with an open mind and figured that I would eat whatever I wanted but that I would be mindful of what I was putting in my body.  I don't think I did the best that I could have done but I also don't think that I did too bad either.  I did realize that the Europeans seem to eat pretty healthy.  They eat whole food that is real and that is of good quality.  At least they did where I was staying. 
The thing I liked was that they are very active!  They ride their bikes and walk everywhere!!!  I must have walked a ton while I was there.  I was looking to rent a bike but didn't have much time to do so.  I came away with the idea that I need to keep active and moving in order to have a much more healthy lifestyle.  I haven't been back to the gym since I returned to the states, but once I get caught up on rest and other family obligations I intend to get right back to it. 
I saw my trainer yesterday and he said he missed me.  I told him that I will be back soon and that he has not lost me.  I am not giving up on this difficult journey.  I know that I will have bumps in the road, but the intention is to just roll right over those bumps and move on. I hope everyone is doing well.
Until next time, stay strong and eat healthy.


  1. I'd have to agree that eating healthy in Europe can sometimes be easier than eating healthy in the States. Glad you were mindful of what you were eating. Maybe you should try to bring a part of Europe back with you and ride your bike around town more like them. Keep up the good work!

  2. Since I love to bike ride, that sounds like a great idea. Thanks for the encouragement.
