Sitting on a bosu

I am glad there are no cameras in the gym… One of my new exercises in the program is just a simple “tit on a bosu ball”… Not as easy at it sounds. I stole a picture from internet to show what it should look like…

Testing new coffee

One of the reasons I gave away my Nespresso and got a new espresso machine was the possibility to get “better” coffee. When you buy whole beans you can get “organic” and fair trade etc. I can also try a lot of different roasts and brands. Today I visited a store and got two packets of beans. I have not yet really got the prices but these were about 10 USD per 250g. So 40 USD per kilo. When I look at the store I get most of my food this coffee was 2-3 times the price. I will buy the cheapest beans I can get and compare. I have now tried the beans to the right. This coffee was really nice. Better than the somewhat cheaper beans I got to try the machine.

Today I went running again and once again it was quite hard. I did run out to the track I have used before and once there I walked for a couple of minutes before I started running again. The slow running I am used to was tough on both my legs and the breath. It felt a little strange… I did however feel I had the energy to run so I played around a bit with rushes of 100-200 meter where I did run as fast as I could. Then I walked some and then rushed again. This was really the first time I really pushed the speed in my running and it was really fun. It felt like I was running for the first time. When I had done these rushes and walks for 3 km I was going to jogg home but the rushes was a bit hard on my muscles so I actually walked all the way home…

New program for the gym

Today I got a new training program for the gym. More balance and core for the firs session and then more arms and upper body for the second. I try to do these sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The running is done of Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. The running has beed a bit slow lately. It is really warm even early in the morning so I have not really gotten to the stage I would like to be. Three weeks left now for my 10K with the goal to run under 70 minutes… That feels a little far away…

For dinner today I had pork and a lot of butter. Some cheese also got eaten during season 3 of “the Walking Dead”…

A lot of water

The heat wave continues… around 28 celsius (82 F). I have filled the fridge with sparkling water flavored  with some different fruits. My favorite right no is the one to the left. It is “Wild strawberry”, or “smultron” as we say in Sweden…

No more Nespresso

I have given away my old Nespresso machine and bought a new one. This an quite cheap espressomachine that grinds coffee beans. Now I just have to find my favorite beans.

I was away almost the whole day and I had a little lunch of barbecued pork and some salad.

16 0724-TommyTappar -24072016-IMG_8272

I also went by my brothers place and had a couple of slices of low carb bread with a lot of butter.

Playing with my new toy

Today I have tried to use my computer with only the new pen. I have “hidden” the mouse out of reach so I won’t use it. It is not easy… The pen uses “absolute position”. This means the screen is on the “tablet” and if I have the pen in the top right corner the cursor is there. It does not work as a mouse where the cursor is where it is… Kind of… It might not sound like a hard thing to learn but it is… It is really fun and I have already found the neat tricks in photoshop I did not manage to do with the mouse.

I had a little brunch today. Some cheese and ham.

16 0723-TommyTappar -23072016-IMG_8271

For dinner I had chicken, broccoli and pure butter without any seasoning.

New toy

I have been struggling with Photoshop and I have not really got used to paining and doing things with the mouse. When I googled for tips and tricks I found a couple of nice movies showing how to use a pen and tablet in Photoshop and other applications. The pen and tablet looked like a real good way to get better control over the movements etc. I know it is a bit of a steep learning curve to get the most out of the pen but I am willing to give it a try.

After a lot of reading and googling I found the Wacom Intuos Pro was a good option for me.


For dinner tonight I went back to the chicken again. Just fried and served with garlic butter. Tomorrow there will be something similar…

For dinner tonight I had hot dogs with scrambled eggs and a butter seasoned with dijon mustard.

Warm soup on a warm day

For some reason I made a soup for dinner today. A soup might be better on a cold day and today was really warm outside. The soup was made from onion, chicken, red curry paste and coconut cream.

Short and slow run

I did not go for the longer run today (only 4,5 KM). I do not really know why but I feel I am getting a little slower and “weaker”. Maybe it is the weather. It is quite humid and warm already in the morning and I am not used to that.

For dinner I bought pre grilled chicken. I had a homemade mayo with garlic as side.
