Thanks so much... Im actually now officially at 3 stone 7 pounds according to my weigh in yesterday. Ive been a little more relaxed yesterday and today and Im currently paying the price so not sure whether I should have eaten a little more normally for longer! Fingers crossed by Wednesday Ill be ok!

Thanks for reading

Pre-travel day!

Hi all,

I still cant quite believe that pre-travel day is here... after all this time!

Thanks for all the comments and likes on the report so far.

Ive planned and poured over this trip so much I really hope that it lives up to expectations.

Ive also worked really hard on my wellbeing in the run up to this trip and my total weight loss amounted to 3 stone 7lbs or 49lbs in total. Im so proud of myself and feel much happier and healthier. Whilst Im looking forward to all the food whilst were away, Im hoping not to undo my hard work too much and would be pleased if I manage to put on less than a stone... well see!

So, we started our pre-travel day with a cup of tea in bed at 6.30am.. its tradition now it had to be in my Animal Kingdom mug.. it was more like a pot of tea than a mug



I had to go into work this morning whilst DH pottered around at home. He made the worker a mushroom omelette to use up some mushrooms, eggs and grated mozzarella we had in the fridge.



It hit the spot and saw me through to tea time with the exception of a bag of Lidls knock off quavers.

We checked in online when I got back home and set off for the Raddison Blu at Manchester airport. This was a bit of a nightmare due to a closure of the M6 northbound. We made it to T2 meet and greet at 5.45pm after setting off at 2.45pm, with a stop at a service station for M&S picnic (10.90 - doesnt include the crisps, water or pick and mix these were bought from Tesco last night).

We did twilight check in which was super easy, we have exit row seats and the check in lady said no one is in the window seat, at the moment so fingers crossed we will have the row to ourselves! Our bags weighed 20kg/18kg/18kg with one case packed in another to bring 4 back so plenty of room for ghiridelli chocolate if we have loads of snack credits left!

We indulged in our M&S picnic which was lovely...



Especially the lemon buns!



We headed down to the bar for a drink to toast the start of our trip (9.30), and I took some photos of
the menu for anyone interested -











And the pizza menu -



Lets face it, its not going to beat our Blaze pizza tomorrow night!

Cheers



Were back in the room now watching Location, Location, Location which this week isnt too far from where DH works.

Alarms are set for 6.15am tomorrow, we have fastpass tickets through security then onto the airport lounge for breakfast!

Thanks for reading along.. Im looking forward to (attempting to) reporting live and being able to re-live our trip when we are back.

Goodbye for now
