The last few posts have been haphazard, apologies for that. I thought I could just land in Thailand and start blogging straight away. It took me a few days to get settled in and acclimatised, which I am still trying to do. The temperature is around 32 degree c and making me constantly tired. Also, it does not help that I am not drinking enough water!
Saturday night I met a couple of friends and we went out, they were drinking whiskey whilst I was on the water. It was a strange ‘private members club’ We walked in through the staff entrance, let’s just say it was a very surreal experience. Just to add, in our section the only entertainment was a band playing in front of a football match!
(Not what you expected?)
On Sunday I relaxed at the local pool, the water was freezing…..which in the heat you would think I would welcome but I needed warm water. It took me a while to get used to the temperature.
Sunday evening was tough for me and I was ready to go back to England, my uncle had sent me some pictures of when my mum was young. As some readers will know, mum passed away a few months ago. Mum is always on my mind and at the moment it is like a roller coaster ride, some days I remember mum with a smile, some days I break down and cry. This made me realise that this journey to good health will not just be physical but also mental.
Monday was a whole new day, through good support of friends, I decided to stay and achieve my goal of losing 25kg.
In the afternoon I trained, forgetting how intense the heat is, luckily between rounds, there is a huge container full of ice water.
Tuesday was spent at Salaya shopping mall, where I picked up a few essentials and had a coffee. My first one since arriving in Thailand.
Salaya Central Plaza
Today, Wednesday I felt more settled, hence the long post!
Drinking around 2 litres of water a day, perhaps I should be drinking more and the good news is that so far I have lost 5kg in body weight, probably water but I will take this as a win!
