Dear Travellers,

Well done to everyone for reaching Day 40 of this challenge. We are amazing :) :)

After we spent the morning walking on the Great Wall of China, we visited the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace and of course the Panda house at Beijing Zoo.

Now we are back on the steamer and enjoying a massage and a pedicure.

Tonight Ricky is back on the dancefloor and his backing singers are serving your favourite cocktails. So its time to shake your Bon Bon like you have never done before :D :D

Happy Travels everyone :) :)

They have a different meaning in the 'Urban dictionnary' - I think I'll stick with your meaning. :-)

Some countries call Christmas crackers bonbons. Australia is one of 'em :)

Have to agree time going by so fast; loved the panda's too and the walk along the wall helped with my 8.5km today.

See you on the dance floor

Evening fellow travellers

I'm really enjoying this wonderful journey with you lovely people. I must have been encouraged more than usual today as I have pedaled 13.4 km this evening on my exercise bike 😀. I have also taken the stairs at work 4 times today (3 floors, 9 flights I think)! My steps today are 2694.

Nearly Thursday already, where has the week gone?

Nic 😀

morelessAdministrator in reply to nickynoo77

Oh my, I'd so like to be near the 11's :) I'm hoping for the 14's for Sueper's challenge and that's pushing things! :)

4279 steps today, not many as was working from 8 am to 8.30 pm, just quick nip round the block with the dog ☀️

moreless
morelessAdministrator in reply to Fran182716

That was an awfully long day Fran, no wonder you didn't venture far :)

Yeeees, it's working 😉

Ahem, sorry, got carried away there 😃

Back in the land of living, but still exhausted. Made it through work but won't do anything strenuous yet as chest still bad.

Managed 7.4 km along the amazing wall of China.

Tired out, so will enjoy watching you shake your Bon Bons while I have a cocktail 🍸😁

morelessAdministrator in reply to Elissy

7.4K's sounds pretty impressive, considering you have a bad chest Elissy :)

Hi happy movers, me today 21.68km - almost the same as yesterday although a completely different day. It ended as all good days should with the safe delivery of a brand new rosy baby girl to my lovely cousin. So very happy indeed.

Have a good evening everyone.

How wonderful Gonti! Congrats to you and your cousin! :)

Fantastic number, as always :)

My goodness. What a day! What a day! China is amazing- but can hardly believe we are at the half way mark oh my goodness I need to put much more effort in!!!

I'm so lucky I'm not bothered about Ricky since there is no way of getting to him past everyone else! Guess I'll just stay here with Idris Elba, chilling...

😍

Oh yes it's 10.1km from me today

10.1K's looks like you're putting in the effort to me :)

I used your calculation formula converting steps- adding up those steps covered without changing your GPS position makes a big difference, apparently :) :) :)

Popping in very late to report 22.53kms of cycling between home and 2 jobs and back home again. Knackered now! I'll happily take you up on that massage and pedicure! Not sure I'm up to any dancing though 😔

Great number Ruth 😊

Ruth_canal_runner1lb in reply to Elissy

Thanks Elissy. That was my first cycle commute to work in about 2 weeks and it nearly did me in! Still recovering from weird phantom bug that just seems to make me feel exhausted - not quite 100% better, but nearly. Hope you're feeling better soon too. These annoying bugs definitely affects the ks! :)

Take it easy, Ruth. Yes, its the exhaustion afterwards everyone I know is suffering from. Was hoping it wouldn't last quite that long though.

Thanks :-) It was less impressive when I was struggling up a hill on my bike in the dark last night (lesson learnt - just don't go that way again until summer) but I felt pretty good afterwards.

moreless
morelessAdministrator in reply to Lexi_1812

Woohoo Lexi! I'm wondering what you're eating, because I'm sure you're jet propelled! :D

Lexi_1812
Lexi_18122 stone in reply to moreless

Tonight, shepherd's pie! Mmm...looking forward to it already!

Lots of carbs (including vegetables) the rest of the time - I know there is a push towards low carb high fat but it wouldn't work for me. I've lost weight since October by reducing the portion size of those carb-heavy meals (I had to buy kitchen scales!) and cutting out junk food - take those away and my diet is very similar to before I started on the 12 week (now week 19!) plan.

moreless
morelessAdministrator in reply to Lexi_1812

I was thinking more along the lines of cabbage + beans = methane = jet propulsion :D

Morning all,

well i certainly enjoyed the great wall and did 6.88km walking and 8km cycling so total for Wednesday 14.88km 😊

Hello everyone!

Sorry for the late reply here, had a very long and busy day.

I recorded 40km yesterday.

2km cross-trainer

35km spin class

3km run

I also did a mini gym session after but I don't have a step counter so can't add those in.

Hope everyone had a good day! :)

morelessAdministrator in reply to Hidden

Our body's have minds of their own, if you see what I mean. They're only going to do what they're going to do, however much we wish they'd do more :)

Sat on bike with no wheels going no place and had the computer fixed so that will be 11k, I'll have to put telly in front of the bike and put the Tour DE France its to boring other wise.

7kms for Wednesday 3rd. Walking. Trying to remain upbeat to beat my personal best by the end of this week but not hopeful!!

moreless
morelessAdministrator in reply to Nussaybah

You can do it Nussaybah and if it doesn't happen this week, there's always next week :)

9270 steps on wed looking forward to a nice cocktail my attempt in nutribullet looks a yucky green and purple colour. Took juicer back today as have decided I prefer veggies in soup and fruit cut up normally!

Finally!!! Not been able to post for the last two days .... not sure what was happening. Here are my stats for the last three days.

Tuesday 4,254 steps

Wednesday 4,950 steps ( around the airport waiting for my other half to get back home from New Zealand)

Today 3,675 steps.

I'm glad to be back and able to post again 😁😁

Had ago at that walking thing again on a tread mill 1.5 k , I don't think it will catch on cycling is much more fun.

So that don't confuse you ML it is 02:07, its so quiet, think I'll go and bang the trees wake the birds up.
