Luxury life

We arrived at the hotel in Vancouver, and I must say it is enough to make my jaw drop! We are on the top floor of a seaside hotel, overlooking the harbour. This morning I even saw two fish eagles among the many seagulls circling right outside our window. The room has the best sheets I have ever slept on, and l'Occitane toiletries in verbena fragrance. There is an outdoor heated swimming pool, a jacuzzi and a very well equipped exercise room that even has my favourite piece of equipment, the assisted chinup machine. There is a lounge with free espresso and lovely tea, and all sorts of small bite size pieces of food, including lovely french pastries that MrH did not let me have this morning, but assured me that his pain au raisins was very good.

My weight is at an all time high, to such an extent that I don't fit into my tank tops that I wear underneath my sweaters. This has only happened once before, when I was 18 weeks pregnant. This is why I have put myself on a thousand calories a day diet, and will continue my vigurous exercise schedule. Yesterday I ran 5 miles again, but despite all my best efforts, on 1600 cal per day I am still gaining weight, so I will have to look at the french pasties from afar! I must say that being surrounded by such luxury makes it easier to be hungry, because all my other senses are so satisfied that it is hard for me to feel deprived.

I appologize if any typos sneak in, i am using the ipad to post and am not very good with the flat virtual keyboard. I will try to post some pictures if you guys want, just leave me comments if anyone want to see pics.


  1. I would strongly urge you to speak to your doctor, a 1,000 calorie diet is completely insufficient to sustain a pregnancy.

  2. However i am not pregnant. Once i get the embryos back i will increase to 1800

  3. I would love to see some pictures! I know what you mean about packing on the pounds. I used to be somewhat thin but this infertility thing has managed to suck the life out of me and my diet, fitness routine, and waist line have been sacrificed!
