Today is gonna be a long but nice day. It’s still warm outside, I’m wearing my new trousers and I’m going to the movies tonight (with my best friend). Sounds like a good day. But like I said, it’s gonna be a long day. I still find it kind of hard toeat enough on days like this. I tend to eat less, and as a result I get cravings. I try to eat as many as I should (around 2000 kcal of fruit, 500 of dinner) but sometimes I fail to get it all in. I’m not planning on having cravings today, so I made myself food for school. I made broccoli, a tomato salad and I have fruit. I also have rice crackers in my locker. I hope that it’s enough for me. I find it ard to eat on the go, or to plan my meals. Bit time has learned that I really need to do it. I need to take time for myself, and think about why I do it. RT4 is a lifestyle that makes my feel better, feel loved and to hopefully learn to love myself. I think today will be fine, I took care of lunch/snack and I have a lot of nice things ahead. I have drama classes today, and I’m really looking forward to it. Let’s make something of today!
I wanted to write something about one of my favorite things in the world: BEANS! And peas too, haha. I Just LOVE beans. I doens’t matter which one. You can make endless variations with beans. And they are healthy. I made this bean salad (see top image) to bring with me to school, and eveyone got jealous. They were all like: “Woaah you’re eating so healthy, it looks so good! I wish I could do that!”
People often say things like that. I find it hard to understand, if you want to be healthy and fit, it’s up to you to actually do that. No-one can do that for you, you need to make the decision to stop eating crap and start eating healthy. So when people say that, I often start laughing, and tell them that this is a normal snack for me. That I like to take good care of myself, and that it isn’t hard.
But for some people it is. They make excuses not to eat good.
But please, stop the excuses and start the realization.
Start to take of yourself. Start to eat fruit. Stop the fat.
YOU can do this, if you love yourself, I wouldn’t be a problem.
Just give your body love, and it will love you back.
I told about it in my last blog, but now I finally made my deciscion.
I’m gonna start over!
And I’ll be posting foto’s of myself (my face,body etc.) tomorrow. I’ve had a busy time and I forgot how important it is to stay on the RT4 guidelines. I may have cheated a bit..
But I’ve realised that it isn’t going to bring me somewhere if I do it like that. That’s why I decided to start over. I’ve read some more, I now know more then I did the last time.
And, most important, I’m motivated to stay on track.
So my blogfriends, let’s make a fresh start!
the day has almost ended here in Amsterdam. It was another school day for me, but I didn’t had to get up early so that was nice. I met a guy whose sister also has my disease, so it was nice talking to him. I, again, made a large lunchpakket made of fruit and a beansalad. I enjoyed it. My dinner was also great. Mum has made a vinegar dressing, and I love it. It doesn’t have anny oil only vinegar.

school has started today… But to be honest, I kinda like it. 🙂 Not just working, but learning things. I like to learn new things and I have a lot of cool subjects this year. I follow philosophy, history and a few other things. I hope that this is gonna be a fantastic school year, full of good grades. ^^ I thought about how I could get my nutricients in at school. HOW do I do that?? I thought about carying all of my banana’s, but I can’t keep 10 banana’s in my bag. And they don’t fill me up enough, I always crave after my banana’s. Even when I eat 6 banana’s… So I made a white bean salad with paprika and onion, a fruitsalad, and a salad made of tomtatoes and cucumber.
My lunchbox, a delicious and fresh salad. The girl next to me was also eating, she first ate grapes (healthy) but after that opened a Mars-bar (unhealthy!). I think I stared at her. How could she do that? All the fat,sugars,E-numbers.. All of these things are bad for us. It was weird, ’cause she was, or that’s how it looked, being a healthy person with her fruit. But unfortunately, not all of us take good care of our body.

I got terrible news a couple days ago. I lost my job in the bookshop. It’s hard because I really liked it there and the fired me because of my illness (a disease in my colon, colitus ulcerosa) . They thought that I wasn’t able to work “flexible” bacause of m hospital appointments. It hurts. But I’ll find something else, I’m sure! My RT4 days are a bit harder, I wasn’t really strict RT4 when I was on holiday, but now I’m trying to be strict again. On day 22 I went out fr dinner, my boyfriend and I went to an Indian place, and GOOOSSH IT WAS SO GOOD. I’d never been there before, never even eaten Indian before, but it was soo damn good. I had the vegetarian option, and my boyfriend, of course, not. I was in a lot of pain afterwarts (all these herbs and spices are a bit too much for my colon)
- Breakfast: soja milk with nuts and fruit and 1 banana
- Snack: none
- Lunch: 2 pieces of toast with honey and 3 peaches
- Snack: soup
- Dinner: Indian
- Breakfast: 3 banana’s
- Snack: 1 glutenfree piece of bread with jam and strawberries ( a lot of strawberries)
- Lunch: a huuuge salad with peas
- Snack: peaches and carrot with hummus
- Dinner: salad with tomato,later another salad with cucumber
- Snack: candy.. (lollipops)
So the candy wasn’t good, but I was on the birthday of my babysit child, she turned eight and she all gave us 2 lollipops. So instead of refusing them, I ate them both. Sometimes it’s hard t say no…
Goodevening everyone 🙂
I’ve survived day 3, haha! Again, this was a hot day. I ate almost all of my meals at home, and whenever I’m at home I’ll always follow the guidelines. So I can proudly say: today was a good day! OKey, I ate a lot of rice but I walked a lot at work and I had a morning workout. 🙂 I managed to run (although it were only 3.4 km)! I felt not as tired as I usually did, so that’s a good thing. But I also slept like 8 houres, so that can also be the cause… I hope it’s from RT4. I felt quite happy today. Oh, I forgot to tell it yesterday, but whenever I’m at my work (in the cafe/restaurant) I don’t eat lunch around 1 but around 3/4. That’s why I sometimes eat a cooked lunch.
Day 3 RT4
Breakfast: 3 apples, 1 banana
Snack: watermelon, 3 banana’s
Lunch: gluten free bread (quite a lot) with humus and sushi
Dinner: Rice with some veggies (like paprika and eggplant)
Snack: More sushi….
