Greetings from Tasmania!

Hi everyone,

Well, my first business trip since banded, and it's been OK.

I packed Optifast shakes, sachets of Oats, some sachets of energy drinks, and some spicy noodles.
Day 1, we were flying in late, and Hobart is a beautiful quiet town that doesn't have late night eateries open, well, not the type I needed. So we landed, and heated up some noodles and settled in for the night.

We have a stunning apartment overlooking the wharves, and it's also so handy for everything we need to do whilst we are here. Travelling and having your own fully equipped kitchen makes life a little easier too.

I have been 'naughty', and I don't mind that I have either. A few pieces of chocolate and a couple of glasses of Pinot have seemed entirely civilised, I really needed that freedom! Albeit but for a moment. Foodwise I have had Moroccan Lamb tagine, and also Vegetarian Lasagne which I chewed like hell to make sure there was no repeats of the other night. Everything is starting to settle again. I am amazed at how little I can actually fit now after my first fill, It really takes very little meals to fill me up now.

It is Day 3, Friday night here, and we are heading out for dinner to one of the stunning Seafood restaurants, I am looking forward to a romantic night out with Chris. Our daughter is back in Melbourne with my lovely Sister who cares for her when we are travelling. We love her dearly, but we savour the moments we can spend together alone as well.

I have been walking, although the wound that has been giving me trouble is weeping like crazy again ( sorry if you're eating + reading this), so I took it easy this afternoon.

We head out to the beautiful Salamanca Markets in the morning, so I bade you all farewell, and hope you all have a great rest of the week!


  1. All sounds like a fabulous time and I have to admit, I'm jealous! :) I hope you enjoy yourself! And yay for the "naughtiness"! Life's too short to not enjoy!!!

  2. Enjoy the rest of your trip and take care of that weeping wound.
