Skipped the gym today as the cold I caught on the plane has settled into my chest, just like the previous one. Not feeling great.
I will do my muscle workouts at home tomorrow and try for the gym on Monday. Some muscles have that good soreness that means I did good workouts. Due to luggage weight I didn't bring my ankle weights to Thailand so those seemed extra heavy to use again.
B: porridge/dried fruit/cinnamon/almond milk
L: fried egg sandwich on whole grain, banana, grapes
Hi all! Well, I am back again because I desperately need some support! Looking forward to catching up with many of you.
We've just returned from 9 weeks in Thailand during which I gained 14 pounds. I was about 6 pounds over my goal weight when we went, so I've got 20 to lose. I did go the gym while we were there, basically to keep up the muscle work, and went about 20 or 21 times. Caught a cold in January and that cut down on my workouts for a couple of weeks.
One of the places we went:
B: porridge/dried fruit/cinnamon/almond milk, tea
L: toast w/hummous, strawberries, glass noodle soup (a Thai dish), flavoured water
S: clementine, yogurt
D: veg curry & rice, salad, flavoured water
S: low fat cottage cheese
Workout at gym:
30 mins spin bike
5 mins rowing machine
4 x 12 on 4 resistance machines
Workout at home:
4 x 12 on 9 dumbbell routines
Progress as of today: 14.8 lbs lost so far, only 20.2 lbs to go!
Hope you all are doing well and getting/staying healthy and fit!
Have NOT been good. Daughter was here and I helped her eat the goodies I baked, then we've been travelling around Scotland for the past week. Totally indulgent. The scale reflects this! Anyway, got home yesterday and today starts 1200 calories.

Our Ugandan daughter is coming tomorrow for a visit. I'll go grocery shopping while hubby goes to pick her up, and also bake her some chocolate chip cookies. Hoping I can keep myself from having more than one!! When those run out I'll make her chocolate chip muffins. Might make those right before she goes back to work and she can take them with her.
