Wabo:I haven't been 9st anything since I was about 15 !

Wabo - I'm in the museum of Liverpool art the moment with the kids.

Nicky - I agree, my knee should still be in warrantee. The physio said it's my IT band that's causing the problem.

Any thought of losing weight is off this weekend. I'm going out to a place called viva Brazil tomorrow night which it's an all you can east with different meats being the speciality. First time out in ages. Then, birthday cake on Sunday.

That should say Museum of Liverpool AT the moment.

LFC - get a foam roller, or alternatively get mrs lfc to roll a tennis ball on the side of the knee/thigh as you are lying down. That'll loosen the ITB off to a degree! (will hurt though).

Birkmyre - I can't remember when I was last 9 stone anything.....

Vixx - I can't let her do that, she'd enjoy it too much.

Thanks Vixx and Wabo. I enjoyed viva Brazil last night but it's no Gusto. I was surprised that I didn't overdo it with the food as it was an all you can eat and the meats they were bringing to the table were very nice, but it looks like I've finally learned when to say that's enough now, don't just eat for the sake of it.

There's a similar place like that in Altrincham, Salsa took me there. Great place, great food, but would have to go back with meat eaters and on a busier night as there wasn't much for Salsa to eat and the meat came round really fast as there were only 5 people in the place (Tuesday nights are dead there) and I didn't have time to finish one lot of meat before the next lot came round. Saying that, being as I am carb depleting until tomorrow some decent meat would be scoffed now!

What are you doing for the day?

14/04/2013 at 10:05
Not sure yet, just seeing how it plays out. You would have loved it there last night Vixx, they bring Tyre may over on big skewers and carve what you want until you say stop. Some of the cuts were too pink for OH, but they were really nice. The only thing is the meat could a bit salty. The salad bar had a good variety of choices on it too.

How's the tapering going?

That's what they do in Altrincham too and cut off what you fancy. I just prefer to not feel rushed  Salsa didn't have much to eat though and being veggie I can understand you would not expect many vegetarians to go somewhere like that - but I would have thought they would offer a bit more for veggies in case. I'd have to go with fellow meat eaters next time!

Taper OK, just got a few things on my mind at the moment. London is my focus

woo hoo!

10st, that'll do

girls home so I am so so happy

Excellent Wabo!

I'm still languishing around the 12 stone mark today, no hope of losing half a stone in the next two weeks so the 161 target is pushed back again. I'm not too bothered though, I am at least back out running, been out three times this week and feeling good, few twinges in the knees but gone by the next day so that's an improvement!

Vixx, how is the taper going? Building up the reserves like a coiled spring?

17/04/2013 at 11:33

Wabo - you enjoy your time with them!

Nicky - I am starting the 'reserve building' today. I also have to go and purchase a new iPod as mine appears to have done a bunk

17/04/2013 at 14:47

I will vixx - I think its why I am so chilled about sunday maybe?  Just full of thoughts of them!

18/04/2013 at 09:43

Morning all - it has been a while. I don't have access to the internet at work so the only time I log on is in the mornings. 

Need to read back and catch up - hope everyone is ok.

19/04/2013 at 12:56

19/04/2013 at 13:00

Keep the lid on for a bit yet!

19/04/2013 at 16:35

20/04/2013 at 07:08
