Hello and welcome on Tinkercook.com. With this blog I would like to share my story about getting healthy and more fit. That sounds like a very big thing, but I want to search for things that work for me and that don’t work for me. I want to be very honest about my successes but also about my failures. I want to loose weight, but I don’t want to spend hours in a gym or never eat anything unhealthy again. I want to loose weight and change my lifestyle in a way that I can still enjoy life. I want to challenge myself to try new things and to leave my comfort zone, but I want to do it in small steps. Better to start slowly and to build it up, than to do everything at once and stop within a week.

I also want to ask you to join me. Maybe I can persuade you to set the first step in getting healthy. That doesn’t mean I want to tell you how to live your life, things that work for me might not work for you and that’s okay. You are welcome however to follow my journey and to learn from my mistakes.

As you can see, I also share recipes. They’re not all healthy, because I don’t believe in a completely healthy lifestyle. I hear many people saying: “after a while you don’t even want the unhealthy stuff anymore!”. This isn’t true in my opinion, if someone would make me choose between a cookie and a banana, I would definitely choose the cookie. So I share recipes on Tinkercook.com that I like. Not always healthy, but always good tasting.

And then ofcourse, you’ve probably also noticed the crafting ideas. I love crafting things, especially making something pretty for someone else. I always feels like it gives so much more value to a gift, if you made it with time and love instead of money. So I couldn’t make a website about myself without also adding this part.

I hope I can inspire you, I hope I can make you set the first step. I hope I can make you see that you’re worth it to change your life for.

Love, Judith

Update week #7: Learning new things

This last week was a difficult week for me. I know, it’s starting to be a bit of a habit to complain. On Friday the bomb finally bursts and I break down on Dan’s shoulder (the sweetheart). I feel trapped, lonely and sad, I want to do so much but I don’t know how. I …

Why can’t I stop eating

I’m laying on the bed, watching Youtube videos and eating my way through a box of chocolate sticks. I know perfectly well that I shouldn’t do that. Not only is it pretty bad for losing weight, also my skin hates it. But this doesn’t stop me. I put another stick in my mouth and start …

Update week #6: Scared of going to the dentist

It’s been quite a while since I wrote my last weekly update and there’s a good reason for it. A few days after my last update I lost a tooth all of a sudden. Now, I guess this would be the time to explain that I am terrified of the dentist. If I know that …

Update week #2: Snacking too much

This week was a pretty nice week, but not when looking at weight loss. I am still keeping up the exercise routines so that’s at least something to be proud of. However, I realized that I don’t really know what I’m doing. Ofcourse I can continue following the television program every day, but this is …

Making excuses to not start with a diet

Making excuses to yourself is such an easy thing to do. “It’s been a long day and I’m tired, I’ll go exercise tomorrow.” “I’ve been careful with what I’m eating the entire day, so I really deserve this cookie right now.” “I really can’t start with being on a diet this week, I’m far too …

black bean brownies

Yeah, you’ve read the title correctly. It says indeed black bean brownies. I found this recipe on Beaufood.nl and was pretty curious about it. When I saw there wasn’t any flour in the recipe and only a few spoons of honey I got a bit worried. Then when I opened the can of black beans …
