Looking good

There you have it 😉 I’m actually able to look presentable 🙂

I took the picture yesterday – the weeding day of my two dear friends, Mads and Jane.

I should of course have put on a matching pair of shoes for the picture. That will be a bit difficult, though, as I only have a pair of brown Dockers, which doesn’t really match my new, black belt… Oh well. With or without matching shoes, it was a mighty fine wedding ceremony and party.

Back on track

After a few weeks of sin, both food and training wise, my clothes are starting to tighten up a little. It’s time to get back on track.

The first step is healthy food. Tonight I’m cooking a spicy stew with veal, onions, garlic, tomato (paste and chopped), peppers, mushrooms, broccoli and beans. The spices are chili, cumin, ginger, cinnamon, oregano, freshly ground pepper and salt. I have made approx 5.5 liters, so I hope it ends up tasting good. I only know for sure tomorrow, as the spices need a day or so to affect the stew. Second/third/fourth day stew is always the best.

I have discovered, of course via Facebook, that Arnold Schwarzenegger has started blogging about weight training and fitness in general. His fitness blog isn’t an entirely new thing, but it seems the blog has become somewhat more alive in 2012, and especially in June and July. The posts I’ve read so far have been interesting and I look forward to many more.

While I have been writing this post, frequently walking back and forth between the stove in my kitchen and the laptop in my living room, the stew has become ready for a night in the refrigerator:
