Had a great day today, starting with a weight loss of 1.8 lb for todays weigh-in. body fat is now down to less than 50% with lean mass up to more than 50%. This time round I have lost 6% of my weight for the 5% Challenge Team in 8 weeks, so well pleased with that. Last night a cotton nightie I bought 4 years ago fitted and I found I had lost 1 inch from my waist. So exciting to see changes which seem to have taken a month of Sundays to begin to show.
It's been hot today for the UK. 27°C/80°F. We haven't seen temperatures like this for more than the odd day for 2 years. Last year we had almost continual rain and cloud right up until into June. I don't like it too hot, but this is bliss.
I got the grass cut this afternoon, took Daisy for her walk and got the bedroom sorted ready for the Chinese girls who arrive for a 3 week stay tomorrow. Next week is going to be busy with taking the girls to College on Monday morning, then cooking for them and picking them up from some late night activities. We're also have a couple of teachers - one from Czechoslovakia and the other from German arriving for 12 days on Tuesday.
Two weeks more of school for Gloucestershire schools and then I will be cutting back on my summer teaching while children are away on holiday. Can't say I am that sorry to be able to take life a bit easier and having the summer students over in July does help to tide me over the lean weeks when I am down 50% or more with teaching. I am very fortunate to be able to work and have this additional income when so many are still struggling.
