Four weeks ago to the day, I arrived at Kiatphontip, Bangkok with the aim of losing 25kg from my starting weight of 95kg. I did not set any milestones, so this actually just happened…..in hindsight I should have set some milestones, but I am happy with my progress and today I weighed in at 84.9 kg, that is a loss of 10 kg in four weeks!
I have been very careful about what I eat and am very fortunate that Noona the amazing chef at the gym cooks very clean and healthy food. Many people who know me, know that I have a sweet tooth, luckily for me the fruit, especially watermelon and pineapple quench the need for sweets.
The next four weeks I have set a milestone of losing another 10kg, this is where my training will have to be more intense!
Please keep following for more progress updates…..
One of my favourite pastimes whilst here is to walk to the ‘yellow market.’ I just adore seeing the various kinds of fruits and vegetables. The meat, fish and eels are a sight to be seen! Today, there were many more stalls because of the forthcoming Chinese New Year
I hope you enjoy the video and would love to have your comments, at the moment I am learning new techniques for taking and editing videos, so all comments gratefully received.
We are having a fantastic cup of coffee at Caffe Reggio, a small Italian family run business. Harinam Singh showed us this place and the conversation is fantastic. The wifi is a great high speed connection.
119 MacDougal Street
New York NY 10012
From their website:
“Welcome to Caffe Reggio, the home of the “Original Cappuccino.”
Caffe Reggio is proud to be the first caffe in the United States to serve Cappuccino.
Since 1927, we have been the most popular caffe in Greenwich Village, and once you have visited us, you will understand why. ”
The above statement us very true and we recommend visiting this caffe.
I have just landed at Chicago O’Hare international and am awaiting the American Airlines flight to Albuquerque, the first thing everybody should do is try out Garrett Popcorn, I recommend choosing ‘The Chicago Mix’ a blend of Caramel Crisp and Cheese Corn, a fantastic combination.
Also worth a mention, the wifi at the Admirals club lounge is fast and free!
Until next time Chicago……..
After a turbulent flight to Albuquerque, I was met at the airport by my very good friend Prith. He arranged for the courtesy shuttle to take us to the Sheraton airport hotel, the room rate was supposed to be $119 per night plus taxes, but we negotiated on $89, also helped that we were SPG (Starwood Preferred Guest member)
I met Prith two years ago at Espanola whilst Sangeet was attending the immersion course, I flew to Espanola to surprise Sangeet with a big chocolate cake, then I thought about driving to Denver to catch up with some friends, something was just telling me to turn back and stay in Espanola. In the meantime, Prith was doing a road trip of the USA and was told by a yoga teacher to visit Espanola, which he did. What was supposed to be a three to four hour visit for Prith to Espanola turned out to be 4 days! Another one of our friends Deva Singh, who was living in Espanola hooked up with us and we had a fantastic time which helped our friendship bond together.
After a good night’s rest we headed out to Walmart to get some supplies, on entering the store somebody shouted out Obama lock and load, I think he meant to say Osama!
I also needed to get a 3G sim so can stay connected, we went to the T -mobile, unfortunately, the frequency was different so my only option was to buy a MiFi unit at a cost of $170! In the end, Prith was able to tether his iPhone through Verizon for $20 per month.
Back on the road to Espanola via Santa Fe for a spot of lunch and sightseeing. Lunch was at India Palace a nice restaurant which is at 227 Don Gasper Ave, Santa Fe. Our last unhealthy meal before immersion:
We popped into The Signature Gallery and met the artist Phillip Payne, he was very kind to spend some time with us and gave us a story of his art.
After a wonderful time in Santa Fe, onwards to Espanola.
We arrived in Espanola around 17:30 and went to the Gurdwara. Afterwards, we were shown our room.
