I have just returned from a week’s holiday on the beautiful island of Kefallinia. Although I came back last Thursday I was still ‘on holiday’ until this morning. I didn’t go mad but equally I didn’t think twice about things. If I wanted a beer I had one. I work hard all year to be able to take holidays so I’m not going to spoil it by making myself miserable. I didn’t take my little blue friends as anyone who has ever eaten a Greek meal will tell you, everything is either cooked in or dressed with copious quantities of olive oil. Whilst I don’t mind leaving a little trail of bubbles in the pool I didn’t like the idea of trailing an oil slick!!
The end result of this is that I have gained 5lbs. Some may think this is excessive but I am more than happy with that. I still weigh much less than I usually weigh before I start my holiday! I am equally determined to lose this as quickly as I gained it. In any event I need to lose 6 pounds before July 3rd which is my next doctor’s weigh in, (I didn’t tell him I was going on holiday).
I am feeling relaxed and happy about things, which is how you should feel after a holiday and have surprised myself with how little I am bothered by the weight gain. Normally after a holiday I berate myself for having so little self-control but maybe I am beginning to grow up a little bit, (I am 50 after all) and realise that I am only human. Life is not a dress rehearsal and I don’t want to wait until I’m slim to start enjoying myself. That said, I’ve got 74 days until my next holiday and I would like to be at least a stone lighter than I am today so here we go again…..
