Day 2

2011 was a great year! Next to all the small things that brightened up my year, there were three major events that changed my life:

  • In spring my boyfriend and I found a perfect place at the north side of Chicago that we now call our home.
  • In summer we added four more legs to the Savoie Klein Haus. Monroe snooped in our life and with all his drool, ninja- countersurfing skills soon turned it upside down
  • In fall I decided to become self employed and founded Kleine Deutschschule 

By the end of the year I tried to fit in my last years beautiful holiday dresses... well... if I was holding my breath I might have been able to close that zipper.... too bad that I have to breath at some point... gosh darn it!
This wasn't the first time that those nasty little pounds sneaked up on me. I have always been an admirer of good foods and at a later point of life drinks kicked in as well, For the new year my goal is pretty clear:

I want my body back!

At least the one I had conquered by mid 2009! So off we go into a new year with just this one resolution. I have started my new way of life already yesterday - but was too hung over to start this documentary project (hey! the drinks were still served in 2011 - so I didn't cheat!)

Today's weight: 185 lbs - my scale is one of those old cheap one. I guess I invest $15 and buy one of those fancy ones from Aldi.

For breakfast I had a glass of cranberry juice - please don't lecture me about sugars and carbs! My answer to that are three simple letters: U T I! I am not a juice drinker at all (the purpose of a good juice is to blend in with booze!) but after a rather painful experience, I every once in a while insist on my antioxidancial friends!
I also enjoyed a few bites of my leftover rotisserie chicken. 

I know my two worst enemies: 

  • portion control

I also like to eat not because I am hungry but because I know how good those potato chips are. I need to go back to the reason of food: to fill my body with energy, to keep me operating.

Hopefully this blog keeps my aware of my goals, my downfalls and my success!

Happy 2012 everybody :)


  1. Good luck! I am also trying to win back my body in 2012!

  2. I hear ya =)
    And I will join you from overseas!
    If we both conquered and got our hot bodies back we have to meet up (here or there) and go out to make some heads turn ;)
