Walking along the train tracks, Vlog…..

Walking along the train tracks, Vlog…..

Since watching the movie, Stand by Me, walking along the train tracks is something I have always wanted to experience, this was a live track and there was no way I could tell the direction of the trains, I was going to say watch the Vlog and find out if I survived, but it is a bit obvious I did, especially if afterwards, I am writing a blog!!

Hope you enjoy it!

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
Tom Yum

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…..

Long goodbye…..

Long goodbye…..

This morning we said goodbye to Manjot and Kulyjot as they rushed off to school.

Puaji, paji and phenji were home, it was nice that we got to catch up with paji and phenji. Puaji and Phenji made lunch which we all ate together. After lunch paji went to work.

Indian goodbyes last some time, in our case about 45 minutes. It was sad to say bye, we have enjoyed staying here so much, feels so relaxed and like home. It was fantastic to see everybody again. When we left Puaji and Phenji packed a lot of fruit and various soft drinks. There are some Indian traditions I question, this one I do not. It is such an amazing tradition….somebody stays at your house, you feed them, accommodate them, when it is time for them to leave you pack so much food they are unable to carry it and send them on their way!!

We arranged to pick up Nolan around 2 pm but got to the hostel at about 2:45pm where Nolan was waiting in his chilled out way. We then went to get the car tyre seen to. The garage was so good, they said that the paperwork needed was too much so they just repaired the puncture for free!

We set off to Wellington taking highway 5 to Taupo then 1 to Wellington, on the way we stopped at Huka Falls, powerful and very amazing falls.

We then stopped at lake Taupo, this lake is huge. The views were stunning with snow capped mountains behind the lake.

The drive to wellington is around 5 to 6 hours, with taking breaks it took about 7 hours. Towards the end of the journey, we were driving in the dark so played 21 questions to keep ourselves occupied and awake which was very entertaining and made us chuckle.

We stopped for dinner at a Chinese restaurant in Bull, called Hungry Bull, that served fish and chips, burgers, bacon and sausage fry up as well as Chinese food! They also sold lollipops, various ice lollies and pastries, as soon as we entered, the restaurant looked dodgy…….the food was amazing! Just goes to show don’t judge a book by its cover!

Once we arrived in Wellington we went to the YHA but as we arrived there at 11:20pm they would not check us in. Tthey said as we had not booked in advance they could not check us in, if we got there by 11pm they would have checked us in….suppose rules are rules. They suggested we try Nomads which had rooms. We got a double room with ensuite. The room was very clean and had a television (in a hostel room!?!?)
