Happy Birthday Mimosa!

Glad you are fully recovered in time for your holiday shy.

We booked a holiday in Kas, Turkey, for the end of April. It was a special offer and so we have upgraded to a sea view with a plunge pool. I am so delighted as generally I have to work hard on my holidays. This will just be relaxing.

Made a great vegetable soup today. Very good DD.

I hope so, we'll get back and only have a week before heading to St P'burg on a train.

We have about 6 stops on the way, sleep in hotels then sightsee during the day. That will be one of the 'working' holidays I mentioned.

Haha Kissa, you are right, that IS my life - in between work, study and training, haha!

I took the train from Moscow to St Pete's a few years back - loved it! St Pete's is a beautiful city, much more European than Russian.

I'm racing this Saturday in the big Abu Dhabi International Triathlon. 1.5k swim, 100k cycle and 10k run. I'll be racing against a certain Mr Alistair Brownlee, very cool!

Hey All. Busy, busy, busy. I'm up at 5:30am nowadays. Gotta be at the Main Gate at 6:45 to catch the bus back to hangar where my office is. Completely exhausted by bedtime. But still loving my work. We are ramping up for a big audit so things are moving pretty quickly - Fast and Furious! I've decided I'm taking the 2nd week of April off to spend with my kids who will be on school term break. We'll probably catch a few movies, maybe check out Ferrari World. Just hang out. DH gets his leave in November and would like to travel so we are looking at maybe going for Ummrah and then 2 weeks in Indonesia.

Juno - Thanks for the laugh!

Mint - Good luck with the hypnosis thing.

Blotto - on the Abu Dhabi triathalon. I'm afraid my running days are behind me. My knee just won't take it anymore!

Lola - Love Pump!!!!!

Shy - Enjoy Egypt!

Kissa - Holidays sound lovely!!!!!

Hope I didn't miss anyone!

Hi All!

Thanks for the congratulations here and on FB!
Had a lovely day on Saturday and celebrated properly.

Back to normal now, after eating LC but too much of everything and eating leftovers for a few days.

I gained 4 lbs. I think (hope!) it's water weight. I drank a few glasses of wine, and it obviously does not agree with me, LOL!

For the rest, all is well, and will have to catch up and read here so for now just bye and post more later!

My menu today:

B: HB eggs, 2 medium, 1TB mayo, homemade
L: small salad with chicken, spinach, feta and sundried tomatoes.
D: ground beef, nothing more, nothing less.

Have a good day everyone!

Mimosa, I think you will find that the wine suits you just fine, it's those dodgy ice cubes you have to watch out for...that's my story anyway, and I am sticking to it!

Glad you had a great time.

Maryam you are clearly loving your job, using your talents and getting a decent wage for what you do. Nice.

Wow Blotto, what company you keep!. Enjoy the race...if that is the right word for it.

Vicky, you've gone very quiet, has Paul McKenna sent you to sleep?

We are looking forward St P too, the 'tour' only allows 2 nights there so we are adding a couple more to give us more time.

I am so enjoying 5:2, it seems to be the way forward for me. I don't feel as if I am really dieting at all. I weighed in this am at 126 after quite a big eating day yesterday. Tonight
I am out with friends so am saving my calories for that.

Blondie, so nice to see you! And so pleased you are enjoying your job despite being so busy.

Mim, glad you enjoyed your birthday celebrations. If you can't put on a few pounds on your birthday when can you?!

Kissa, 5:2 really does seem to suit you. I need to look into it more me thinks.

Shy, not long til your hols, woo hoo!

Jan, Lola - how's your modified versions of 5:2/JUDDD going?

Juno, are the knickers on or off?!

Mint, how's Paul McK going?

Sorry anyone I've missed!

I'll be back on Sunday - no doubt in agony after my race on Sat - I've just heard that it's going to reach 35 degrees with 90% humidity - OMG!

Blotto: Good luck with the race...I.ll be routing for you. How's it going with my new modified version of JUDDD you ask. Well I.ve stuck to it and today is my 3rd DD this week. I noticed after the 2nd DD on Tuesday that on Wednesday I had lost 2lbs and only put 1lb back on this morning after an UD...yesterday..so guess maybe early days but I will stick with it to see if I need extra calories to kick start the metabolism again. I.ve been on so many diets and eating plans over the years that TBH my metabolism is probably well and truly wrecked.

Blondie: Good to see you back..but understand the pressures of work are taking their toll. At least you still getting lots of exercise with all that walking hopefully.

Shy: Oooh no balloon flights for you.....not many days now..excitement.

Mint: How's the Paul McKenna going its all gone quiet on your journal?

Kissa: Sounds like some lovely breaks coming up for you. I.d love to go by train and do what you are doing. I suppose I could as well lol.

Just finished body pump and whizzing by home to shower and get ready for work.

Why is all this keeping in shape and dieting so flipping complicated. Why weren't we all built with the same bodies like penguins...etc...then we wouldn't be so dissatisfied if everyone looked the same...hmm but how boring lol.

oooh Sun coming out here. mush dash. Hi to everyone else reading. hope you're having a good day. Down Day for me...so black coffee and nothing until tonight.
