I'm back!

We had a lovely time away. We rode our bikes while we were there. I managed some hills but I am still not good on hills and had to walk and push the bike if it was too steep. That really annoys me. We walked 17km round trip into the town one day. I really enjoyed that.
These were the naughty things I did:

Ate a pastie
Drank red wine, Baileys, Omni and Chardonnay! (not all at once)
Ate greasy chips and fish (suffered all night for that)
Ate too much brie cheese
Didn't drink enough water
Didn't eat enough vegies. (Not a very healthy shopping environment where we were. I don't think many people like nice fruit or vegies as most of it was old and wilted!).

These were the good things I did:

Rode my bike
Read "Ultra Marathon Man" by Dean Karnazes. (I had bought this book for DH for his birthday and when he finished reading it I decided to have a look. It was a great book and Dean is an amazing man. He runs hundreds of miles, night and day. Pushes himself and his body beyond all limits. He says he runs with his heart and doesn't let his body stop him from running as far as he wants to. He also raises a lot of money for charities.)

The result of all the above was a gain of 700g! DH is on holidays for another week so I will concentrate on getting rid of that after next week. Glad to be home and bought lots of nice fresh fruit and vegies and healthy snacks.

We will do some day trips next week, including a trip to Burnie to pick up our transponders for the Burnie 10. We have deciced not to stay there the night before and we won't have to go as early if we pick them up before race day.

Looking forward to catching up with all your news later tonight.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!!

Glad you had a great time Suzy. The important thing to remember is that you don't go on holidays all the time so one week of indulgences doesn't really matter in the big scheme of things. I gained alot in my whole four days away, so you have done brilliantly!

Welcome back !!! So glad to hear that you had a good time away. IT does us good to have a change of environment - sorry that they didn't have nice fruit and veggies though.
Enjoy the week with DH off and have a great weekend !
Take care and be good !

Ah, like MissJesse said, you don't go on holidays all the time, and it could've been a lot worse than 700gm if you hadn't already had all these great habits in place to keep you from indulging every day. :)

Glad to hear you had a great time!

Sounds like a great break!

michelle said...

Sounds like you had a great time and 700g is not much of a gain for a holiday. All that bike riding and walking must be making you fit.

M said...

Whooo Hoooo what a time you had. Sounds wonderful. With the work you are planning to do for the Bernie 10 that small gain will be gone in the blink of an eye.

Have a great day Suzy :)

Sounds like a pretty good time overall and I'm glad to hear you still got to enjoy your Baileys *yum, licks lips*. Finding healthy food does seem to be a challenge when on holiday so 700g is nothing when you compare to it to the big picture and hey, you sure know how to lose it now. Enjoy the rest of your week :-)

Glad you are back! We all missed you!

0.7 isn't bad considering the list of naughties!! If it takes 1 or 2 weeks of being strict you can handle it as it was all worth it!!

I understand the little bit about paying for the greasy fish & chips. Amazing how our bodies react now when we indulge in the things that are not good for us. At least it reminds us why we don't have them anymore.

Welcome home. XX
