30-days-honey experiment


My grandma always says, “Want to be healthy? Eat a spoonful of honey every morning!” Wait, what? Just honey and no tea? Isn’t it too sweet? Yes it is. But then again, she  is not the only one to claim it is good for you.

So, I decided to experiment. For thirty days I will consume a spoonful of this sweet gloriousness every morning. I don’t know if I will feel any healthier after my experiment. I hope I will become healthier after it. And I hope my grandma is right.

Have you done similar experiments? How did it go?

32-minute-a-day remedy to boost your ego by walking to work

About a month ago, I determined to time my walks to work and back home. My ego up in the sky now, I am very proud to be walking at least 3.8 km a day. Here are the results:


The green line shows how much time (in minutes) it took for me to walk to work during the month of October. The blue line is the average time of 16.02 (16 minutes 1 second).

How long should it take to walk to work?

The tires on my bicycle are flat since the day before my vacation started. This is why I’ve been walking to work after we came back from vacation. It is nothing new to my body, though. Last winter, I was unable to ride my bike due to heavy snowfalls. Which was why I walked every day to and from work, which I enjoyed immensely.

Several days ago, I started recording the time I spend walking to work. (The time I spend walking home from work is very inaccurate, mostly depending on what mood I am in, what I’ve had for lunch or which shoes I wear.) I usually spend between fifteen and twenty minutes. Yesterday, though, I beat my personal record “by five minutes” and landed on 10:38.8. (Proof.)

Today, I tried to repeat it and spend the whole of 15:19.3 walking, which left me begging for more. Something went wrong and I need to fix it. For the next month I pledge to measure my steps and breaths to get to the truth of the matter – does it take ten or fifteen minutes for me to walk to work?
