Weekend Getaway…..

Weekend Getaway…..

Even back home I never stay in once place for too long, so here I have started going away for the weekend.

Thanks to Hilton this has been made possible, this weekend I managed to get a nice room with awesome views:

Millenium Hilton PANORAMIC EXECUTIVE SUITE

This overlooked the fantastic Chao Phraya River:

Late afternoon/evening the time lapse video gets interesting after 3 minutes.

Hope you enjoy the videos, this is one of my favourite views and areas of Bangkok.

Taxi Ride…..

Taxi Ride…..

Hope you enjoy the following video of a taxi ride from Salaya to downtown Bangkok. This journey took longer then usual due to the traffic, well, Bangkok is one of the worlds most congested cities!

What is that…..?

What is that…..?

Well after spending this amount of time in and around the gym, it was inevitable that I would finally see a snake!

As my regular readers know, I am petrified of snakes…..so this did come as a shock. The best thing, in this case was to get out the GoPro and capture it on video!! – Anything for social media!

Also, as you can imagine, I am very wary about walking through this area and double checking anything resembling a snake, for example tree trunks, ropes, tires!

My First Milestone…..!!

My First Milestone…..!!

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.

Here it is very easy to grab a bag of fruit and eat it on the go, these bags of fruit are 30 Thai Baht each.
Salmon with scrambled eggs and greens, extremely filling and as Noona would say ‘soooooooo tasty!’
The temptation to celebrate with eating with one of these amazing looking ice creams is great, but I better achieve my next milestone first!

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…..

Yellow Market, Salaya, Thailand…..

Yellow Market, Salaya, Thailand…..

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 may 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. Thank you!

My Thoughts on my 25kg Target Weight Loss

My Thoughts on my 25kg Target Weight Loss

I am sat here with my one vice, black coffee. Which according to some websites is a good thing and with other websites it is bad!

Enjoying a strong black coffee whilst creating this post.

All I can say is everything in moderation (well sometimes!.)

I am pondering the life changing goal of a 25kg (well 20kg now!) weight loss. Taking extreme measures as to only eat what Noona at the gym cooks for me. No sweets, snacks, fizzy drinks or alcohol. For those who know me, know that this is not easy, especially when I walk into coffee shops and see an amazing selection of cakes. By the way, I have a sweet tooth!

I am sure these are here ONLY to tease me!!

Luckily, here in Thailand, when I do fancy something sweet I can get some pineapple or watermelon, it gets rid of my sweet craving. Here the fruit tastes like it should…..!!!

At the gym I get a good variety of fresh fish, meats and vegetables with rice which is the staple diet.

Rice, fish curry and vegetable soup with bits of pork.
Rice, fish salad and chicken curry
All cooked by the amazing chef and sister, Noona

A lot of my eating habits need to change, for example, I am a very fast eater….the food would be piled into my mouth, head straight, unchewed into my stomach, where the poor stomach would have to do the hard work of processing it. By the time the stomach has done what it had, the second load of food appears, for my stomach, this is a never-ending story. Feeling sorry for me stomach?!

Also, snacking is a big no, easy to say whilst in Thailand, as the heat distinguishes the hunger.

This is all a mindset that needs to be changed for a long and healthy future…..
