(Clean eating - serious workouts)
Weight: 147.6

Resting.  Husband is much worse than me with every symptom. I'm coughing with a slightly runny nose. 

Scale went down nearly 5 pounds so I'm guessing it was fluid retention then loss. Maybe I didn't gain as much as I thought. Will see. 

Menu:

  • B:  porridge/dried fruit/cinnamon/almond milk
  • L:  grilled cheese on whole grain w/low fat cheddar, yogurt
  • S:  cherries, strawberries
  • D:  veg chili & basmati rice, salad
  • S:  low fat cottage cheese
  • tea w/soy milk, herbal teas, flavoured water, water, coffee w/almond milk
Cals:  1398 (too high for a non-workout day, but then I didn't eat the cottage cheese last night that I had on my menu yesterday). 
 
One of the many reasons for my weight gain: (I love to do foot photos in different places)
 
 
 

Progress as of today: 19.4 lbs lost so far, only 15.6 lbs to go!

museumgirl on 02/07/2015:
So happy for your loss, hope you feel better. But seriously, that picture is just NOT fair....

grannyannie on 02/07/2015:
LOL. I drove my Facebook friends crazy with photos of beaches, swimsuits, etc while they were whining about snow and cold!


thinkpositive on 02/07/2015:
Sorry to hear of returning with a cold. Maybe everyone should wear a mask on the plane. Good news on the scale!

grannyannie on 02/07/2015:
Thanks. I've tried a mask before and your hot breath makes your face all sweaty. Not something you'd want to do for hours and hours.


puddles on 02/07/2015:
Love the picture. Get well soon.

grannyannie on 02/07/2015:
Thanks!


SkinInTheGame on 02/07/2015:
It's Gilligan's Island! Love that!! Feel better and stay focused to keep those 5 off?

grannyannie on 02/07/2015:
Haha! Thanks. I'll keep off the 5 and take off another 15!

WhoopWhoop! 5 down.....

grannyannie on 02/08/2015:
Thanks, although most is fluid. But a good thing is I probably didn't gain as much as I thought.

Good morning!

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.  

Menu:

  • B:  porridge/dried fruit/cinnamon/almond milk
  • L:  fried egg sandwich on whole grain, banana, grapes
  • D:  veggie chili & rice, salad
  • S:  low fat cottage cheese
  • tea w/soy milk, herbal teas, flavoured water, water, coffee w/almond milk

 

Cals:  1319

Progress as of today: 14.8 lbs lost so far, only 20.2 lbs to go!

puddles on 02/06/2015:
Take care of yourself. Have a good day.

grannyannie on 02/06/2015:
Thanks. Same to you.


museumgirl on 02/06/2015:
Do feel better soon.

grannyannie on 02/06/2015:
Thanks.


liza36 on 02/06/2015:
Sorry you are not feeling well. Rest and take care of yourself.

grannyannie on 02/06/2015:
Thanks. I hate having to take it easy on the exercise, but know I have to.


Umpqua on 02/06/2015:
Aw, I hope you feel better. Rest up!

grannyannie on 02/06/2015:
Thank you. I will.


biscottibody59 on 02/06/2015:
Hey there world traveler, good to see you posting:-) Hope you get to feeling better and can get back to your routine very soon!

grannyannie on 02/06/2015:
Thanks! I did go the gym while in Thailand. Just ate/drank like a pig! Should have been back here and posting while we were there to help me keep on track. I will keep posting during our US trip this summer, and Thailand next winter. Having to report and getting support makes a big difference.


thinnside40 on 02/06/2015:
Just got over 3 weeks of the nasty cold thing. Hope you are better soon!!!!

grannyannie on 02/07/2015:
Thanks. I had one in Thailand as well! Ack! Hate this.

grannyannie on 02/05/2015:
Thanks. So far not as bad as the last cold. Crossing fingers!


Umpqua on 02/05/2015:
They should just pass out face masks on airplanes, they are such a breeding ground for germs :P What a gorgeous picture and great work getting back on track with the eating and exercise!

grannyannie on 02/05/2015:
I don't think I could wear one an entire flight, makes my face sweaty. But it's easy to catch things on a plane with everyone's breath being recirculated. Ack.

Thanks. I've got 6 1/2 months to reach my goal so have no excuses!


museumgirl on 02/05/2015:
Gorgeous picture. I just hate flying and the germs are one of the reasons. I always get sick after a flight. Hope you both feel better.

grannyannie on 02/05/2015:
Thanks. Husband has it much worse. I do sometimes catch a cold after a flight. I was shocked at the number of people coughing on both our flights home as everyone was coming from a warm climate.


liza36 on 02/05/2015:
What a gorgeous picture! Feel better soon.

grannyannie on 02/06/2015:

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:

 

Menu:

  • 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

Cals:  1439

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!

Umpqua on 02/04/2015:
Simply beautiful, Annie, but then all your photos are! I know you had a wonderful trip and it's great to see you back here :)

grannyannie on 02/04/2015:
Thanks! Wish I hadn't gained and didn't need the support though. Still, nice to catch up with everybody.


mcwoo40 on 02/04/2015:

Hello!! It's been so long!

Your travels sound amazing!! And while sometimes during those travels we do a bit of over indulging you definitely seem like you're on the right track! As always you're an inspiration... keep it up!! :)

grannyannie on 04/01/2014:
Thanks! But we travel so often and for so long that my indulging seriously catches up with me -like now!


liza36 on 04/01/2014:
You always get right back to it. After my travels, I have a really hard time getting back to my plan.

grannyannie on 04/01/2014:
Got to get serious! We are travelling a total of about 3 or more months a year.
