    Fantastic numbers, ecks. And you've hit another milestone weight-wise. Absolutely marvelous. I am definitely proud of you. Way to go:-)

    Tell your sister how wonderful her loss is. 181 is great:-) She's doing great too, I think.

    Happy days!

    Thanks pam! Both me and my sister have been working at it not together... but in competition almost. We're 2 years apart but we always stride to beat each other to everything and find encouragement from eachother's efforts. She's taken the CW route (though not much time for exercise because she's full time work/school/mom) But she's kickin ass!!

    Lookin at my goals I didn't set myself up this month to pass the 280 milestone. Instead though I have the privilege of aiming at the 50 lbs mark which should *hopefully* happen by the 25th. Let's wait and see!

    *Yesterday*

    Breakfast- My regular coconut milkshake + raspberries

    Lunch- 3 Slices of streaky bacon, turnip fries (fried this time in the bacon fat instead of the usual baking), and a massive egg scramble (2 xl eggs, tomato, red peppers, mushrooms, green onion) <--- Gosh how I missed eggs! (I took a break for a while). 2 pieces of lindt 99%, 1 piece lindt 90%

    Dinner- Indian butter chicken from scratch! (Oddly enough without butter)- Chicken thighs slow cooked in tomato/onion puree, coconut milk, currey, garlic, 5 spice. Served over cauliflower rice with a massive salad on the side. 2 pieces of lindt 99% 1 piece of lindt 90%


    Today!
    Breakfast- Regular coconut milkshake + Raspberries

    Lunch- Leftover butter chicken and 2 cups of mixed veggies (red peppers and celery)

    Dinner - Premarinated pork chops (or as my butcher calls them- "Rob's sexy chops"), asparagus, left over mashed cauliflower/turnip from Saturday, most likely followed up with the regular dosage of dark chocolate.

    It's -15 Degrees Celsius (5 degrees Fahrenheit) outside today so I may have to subject my already fried legs to some more airsquats for time... I'll have to see what I can do tonight because it's way too cold to be out for an hour's walk

    **Uodate***

    Workout- 30 Pushups

    50 Situps for time using a poor man's abmat (aka rolled up towel)- 3:28

    Waiting to hear back from a kijiji seller on an abmat, if he doesn't come through I'm just gonna suck it up and pay full price.

    Oh, yes. I see the 50 lb. mark happening. Yep. I can visualize it. You are definitely going to do it soon.

    Eggs are funny. Sometimes I just can't eat them, and other times they sound so good. I'm thinking eggs and bacon for lunch today with zucchini.

    Love your pictures. They always give me ideas! Yep. This is going to be a great month -- especially if I move my butt around a bit (read lot) more. Living in town, I find it hard to "do" exercise. Easier when you're lifting bales of hay around and moving livestock and mowing and such. I do miss it. But then, there are no stores with exotic oils and vinegars and Powell's Bookstore, etc. around. Of course, I guess one can get pretty much everything online.

    A super day!

    Yesterday

    Breakfast- Regular coconut shake plus half a banana

    Lunch- Pork Chops 2 cups mixed veggies

    Dinner- Half rack ribs, some baby carrots. 2 pieces of lindt 90 and 99 and some banana chips for dessert

    Dodgeball was probably one of our worst games in weeks. We were playing a team that have been playing so long that they had their 6 and 7 year old kids (and there were 6 of them) there to root them on. Still a lot of fun though!

    Today

    Breakfast- Steak and bacon

    Lunch- Ribs and veggies

    Dinner- Steak and veggies most likely and the regular chocolate dosage

    Excercise- short walk planned for tonight


    So I've been experimenting with full time standing desk instead of the 15 mins here or there... It's been quite nice! I have more mental energy built up but i tend to be lacking in physical energy by the time i get home from work. This is only day 3 of the full time standage and I can definitely deal with it It's not bad at all!

    Didn't end up going for that planned walk yesterday. Crashed after a long day at work and eve with my buddy

    Today
    Breakfast- 4 slices of bacon, coconut shake

    lunch- steak and veggies

    Dinner (a very odd one)- 2 eggs, 2 lobster claws, 2 chicken wings. Bananachips and chocolate for dessert

    Got into the pool tonight 6 minutes late and was still able to push against the clock and get 50 laps (1.1KM) out tonight. I'm happy with that.

    Starting to get to the point where I feel like I need to disappear from my surroundings for a bit. 2 or 3 days off of work where no one outside of work knows I'm off... Looking for a retreat centre or somewhere where I can just get me time and not have to concern myself with much more. Soon i think... very soon.

    If you had unlimited funds and could go on a retreat anywhere in the world, where would you go?

    Anywhere? It's a close line between Trinidad (for the music) and pretty much any Spanish country (for the ladies). I'm not Spanish I just have a weakness for their female population

    Trinidad might work for both -- a beautiful spot for a retreat and music and lots of Spanish-speaking ladies -- including tourists from some of the nearby Spanish-speaking countries. Hope you get that break soon. I've been needing one for a whole lot of years. Someday! If I could get back to the country, I could make my own retreat:-)
