I started the Belly fat project 7 January 2013. Since I think it works very well with both weight loss and health I continue 🙂
When standing on the scale October 6 I thought it was showing the wrong number, 77,2 kg!!. I had to step of and try again.
The last time I was on the scale was about two month before it stopped at 81 kg and I was very happy, I reached my goal that was around 82 kg.
Thursday morning 25 September four people, Johanna, Sofie, Peter and me, from Malmö City Skaters drove from Malmö to Berlin. Arrived at the outskirts of Berlin at approx 16.00 and spent an hour or so in the rush hour traffic before we reached Tempelhof Airport where we should pick up our start number and check out some of the roller skate gear. Compared to last year when we visited the fair on Friday the number of people was very limited at this time. We had late dinner at Steakhouse Asador, Wilhelmstrasse 22, where we had our After Marathon Dinner last year.
Friday was foggy and misty. Met up with some of the other Malmö City Skaters and spent the day on sight seeing. Sea food lunch at KaDeWe . Dinner at an Italian restaurant.
Saturday, roll day, the weather was turning out much better then the previous days with blue sky and sun:-D. The morning was spent walking along the river to Berlin Science Museum.
13.30 we met in the reception area for a group photo with Rolling Vikings. Coach Gisle and I skated with Malmö City Skates flags from the hotel to the start. Unfortunately the flags was not allowed into the starting area due to security reasons. Gisle hid the poles in the bushes and I took the flags to the start area for the group photo that was taken in front of the Reichtag.
Together with 5.600 skaters we were waiting to get rollin’. We started out with a pack of 7 and an average speed around 26-28 km/h. We shrinked to 4. Gabriella and I switched to draw (got some help from Jesper). A few times we heard Gabriella’s husband shout from the back: “GABRIELLA!!, slower, please!!” 😀
The pack started out with a goal at 1.58. I passed finished at 1.49!! Totally happy!! Thanks for great company pack members!! Fantastic feeling rolling the last couple of hundred meters Unter den Linden to the finish line 😀
After skate dinner with 20 members of Malmö City Skaters at hamburger/steak restaurant The Bird in Kreutzburg. Very cool place with great food. Personally I was totally flying from the result, atmosphere and company.
Some of us finished of at the official after skate party at Columbiahalle…
Checked out the Berlin Running Marathon from Gendarmenmarkt Square where Sofie, Johanna, Peter, Gisle and I had some lunch before returning home…
That’s it for Berlin Inline Marathon 2014…

10 sunny days (26 June – 7 july) of the summer vacation was spent in southern Spain, in and around the town Benalmádena where we (Mickey and me) stayed in a very nice flat overlooking the sea and mountains.
The town is located 12 km west of Malaga, approx. ½ hour drive from the airport. It is divided into three separate parts:
What we did in Benalmádena:
A 12 min. and 2,6 km long cable car ride start from Arroyo de la Miel. It takes you to the summit of Monte Calamorro, 769 m. Fantastic views over the area. A bird show is included in the ticket. Two falconers showed some tricks with eagles and vultures. After the show we decided to walk down. According to the guide it should take approx. 2,5 hours and “the trail start 100 m. down the road to the right”. After followed this trail for some time it suddenly ended and we looked for something that looked like a trail. Ended up at a VERY steep cliff where we agreed to turn back and try descending somewhere else. Found a not so steep and high spot where we managed to climb down. Mickey tried some “pebble surfing” on the hill side :-). With lunch break and the “detour”, it took us 2 hours and 20 min. to return to the start.
Benalmadena Costa has almost 10 kilometers of beach. From quiet cove, to the family focused beaches with plenty of activities. The beaches are a mixture of man-made, golden sand and shingle. Sales men and women like to sell you sun glasses, football T-shirts, hats, watches, hair extensions, massage etc. We liked the beach at Castillia Bil-Bil. For some reason, less crowded and one day with nice waves. Paseo Maritimo, the beach walk with lot’s of bars, cafes and restaurants to the Puerto Marina, an Arabian style marina that has over one thousand moorings and also with many places to eat and drink.
Found a supplier, Schøller stål/Steelsupply
An art tour organized by Malmö town started at Bagers place during easter 12.00 and 14.00.
We flew Air Berlin to Torino and SAS home from Milano. 1,5 hours transfer from Torino to Sestriere and 3 hours the other way. A “memorable” moment on Air Berlin was the free “sandwich”…
Sestriere is located at 2035 m. above sea level, 17 km from the French border. It is a part of the ski area Via Lattea (milky way) that has around 145 skiable pistes, that adds up to approx. 400 km.
Landmarks in town are the two round hotel towers that was built in the 1930’s by the FIAT family for the employees at the car factory in Torino to spend their winter holidays. It is still a popular winter resort and the population goes from the 800 inhabitants to approx 20.000 during the winter holidays. In 2006 Sestriere was a part of the winter Olympics.
We had 6 days with sun, blue sky and warm weather. First couple of hours during the day the piste was hard, “wash boardish”. The next couple of hours it was nice and soft, sometimes a bit of spring snow. Some slopes turned a bit too slushy in the afternoon.
A windy and cold Sunday in Januar, my colleague Carl visited Malmö together with his wife. I used the earlier post with sightseeing in Malmö as “template”. This is an updated version with Sibbarp Beach (9), Ribban Kallbadhus (12) and Malmö Central Station (16). You are welcome to use it for inspiration when visiting Malmö.

100 g græskarkerner
100 g solsikke kerner
100 g mandler
100 g valnødder
100 g hørfrø
100 g sesamfrø
1 dl ekstra jomfru olivenolie
2 tsk salt
Bland alle ingredienser i en skål. Kom massen i en smurt form. Bag brødet i en time ved 160 grader (forvarmet ovn)
Det er vigtigt at nødder, kerner og mandler kommer HELE i brødet. Blendes eller kværnes de, så frisættes de sunde men sarte fedtsyrer og de kan harskne, når brødet bages ved 160 grader (og så er de ikke spor sunde mere).
