14 mile bike ride today including a steep hill. Also walked up a very steep hill to visit a temple. All while it was sunny and hot. So I felt I deserved some rewards, but probably over-rewarded myself.
Oops, scale is going in the wrong direction. Too many calories obviously. I'll need to have more 'light' days. I think I'll skip the beer on my M W gym days this week and have my beer and treat on xmas day.
Today we'll ride 7.5 miles roundtrip to a cafe for dinner.
B: porridge/raisins/soy milk, soy yogurt, 2 sm bananas, tea
S: cappuccino & small biscuits
L: something a bit different - shrimp, pineapple, warm potato salad with mayo
D: duck curry w/carrots, tomatoes, lime leaves, pineapple; apple/lime/cucumber/celery juice not sweet
HOP asked about the food here and how much veggies were in them. So I'm posting some photos.
Curries, lots of veggies and tofu.
Common veggies in curries and other dishes are cauliflower, green beans, broccoli, some Thai veggies, a Thai eggplant, carrots, lots of various leaves, herbs, often pineapple, cucumber on the side.

Going to have my next treat on xmas day. Since it's a Friday it will be a gym day so I'm already allowed beer/other alcohol that day. So I'll add in a dessert. No idea where we'll be eating dinner that day, but we're thinking about booking a boat and snorkeling trip that day. It's not a holiday here since it's a Buddhist country, but there are xmas trees and decorations and non-religious xmas music everywhere for all the christian tourists or expats.
Progress as of today: 26 lbs lost so far, only 6 lbs to go!
