Around the World in 80 Days - Please post your kms/steps/miles for FRIDAY 22 January (Part 1)

Dear Travellers,

Once we have enjoyed the delights of snorkelling and swimming with the elephants, this afternoon we are going to be staying on Havelock Island resort (east of Great Andaman). It has a beauty spa with plenty of massages, pedicures, manicures and facials for you to sample. Or you can just relax on the sun lounger with a good book.

Tonight on the dancefloor we are having Salsa lessons and then dancing to Ricky Martin. He is a fine specimen of a man and knows how to flirt - just what we need on a Friday night. Your favourite cocktail will be served how you like it. Cocktails and hips shaking all evening :D :D

We are now on Day 28 of our voyage around the world. This week there have been some amazing results from you all - lets keep it up for the rest of the week. Great if everyone can keep posting on Saturday and Sunday.

Happy Travels everyone :) :)

Tut tut, all these grown women (and bats) squabbling over a man. Obviously all this weight loss is making us all feel frisky (or is spring approaching?). I think it's going to have to be a boy band that plays for us tomorrow night, or we need some more men going round the world with us😎 Only to dance with, of course.

17.3 km today. Frozen solid from my walk back from work (it's MINUS 5 out there). Must have burnt a few calories it's so cold! there's certainly plenty of burning material round my tummy so my body had plenty of opportunity to use it.

I shall now luxuriate in the sun on my deckchair (have to pull my stomach in), with a cocktail in my hand, warming up and looking forward to seeing you all battle it out for Ricky Martin😈

Hi Alan,

I hope you won't take offence, but I don't give my name on the forum, because I like the anonymity it gives me.

Please don't take this personally, it's just one of my rules :)

I want you to take heart, because every one of those steps means you're still walking and not confined to a wheelchair.

I'm sure that there are other members that can't manage as many and would give their eye teeth to be able to do 672 steps :)

Always look on the bright side of life (do you remember the Monty Python song?) :)

Reply

hi there no that's find i fully understand and never take offence may be a gate post (that's a joke), no i do understand you, because someone once asked my for my picture and because i was getting a lot of stick from my ex-misses i don't put it on, i did send the person a pm with my photo, but that's ok with me truly. i am grateful at the moment that my legs via my knees are still working, i just think back to when i was young at playing football right up until i was 42 years old, when you suffer from depression its hard some days and ok the next, just ignore me if i moan now and again. but many thanks to you and the rest of my friends on the forum for the love you show and kindness take care Alan

p.s the monty python was it always look on the bright side of life.?

Mini stepper is great (got the replacement one today). Balance is all ok - did 20 minutes watching Frasier this morning. Not quite sure how to convert the steps into km, but with some careful measuring with the ruler and waving my fingers in the air to see which way the wind blows, I've decided that 3000 steps = 1.5k :-)

Oooh - a rowing machine. How cool is that :-) I used to be a member of a rowing club on the Forth in Stirling. It was bloomin' freezing - but rowing is a really good workout !

Oh no! I did a great long reply and it's vanished! :(

I think we ought to award you step for step Lucca, so your distance for the stepper, should be 2.25K's :)

I learn something new and exciting about you every day! :)

I'm not sure how I'll cope with getting on and off the thing yet, it's so low, never mind actually rowing, but I desperately need to do something about my bingo wings! :o

Trust me to be confined to quarters when Ricky is on board! Sobbing audibly.

I am so poorly.😢 upper and lower respiratory infections.

Not sleeping and in bed all day yesterday. After a worse night last night, I feel I will be in bed all day again today.

I only got out to the doctor's yesterday and with a few trips up and down stairs I covered 2.6km.

I promise I will make up for it as soon as I am back to normal.

The plus side is I am still off the alcohol and it is giving me time to read 'the sweet poison plan'. Every cloud. 😊
