I do love a city break. We wandered around the city and ended up down a few dead ends (I think it's a given in Venice that everyone gets a little lost at least a couple of times! Thank God for iphones that's all I can say!haha) We took in the sights, took a gondola ride, went on a day trip by boat to Murano and ate some
too much good food! Pizza, pasta, ice-cream, meringues (didn't know that was an Italian thing?)...But yeah you get the picture, I overdid it a wee bit BUT we also did A LOT of walking- that balances it out right???
Evidently not...I had worked pretty hard at the gym the week before we left as I expected a gain from being on holiday and needless to say there was one. But once again I'm trying to shift it. I haven't made an appointment to see my HCA yet. Truth is I don't want to go and have an "official" gain- denial much?!... But maybe it's a good thing that I don't want to let her down either. Don't get me wrong, I'm doing this for me and my future but knowing that someone else is rooting for me is an incentive. I want to work hard and hopefully be at least (or most, I suppose) the weight I was before I left to go on holiday- so wish me luck! Again I've noticed the huge impact of not keeping track of my eating, just a week off and all my good efforts go out the window- not anymore!! I'm back to myfitnesspal (MFP). I have to mention aswell, what inspiration I'm getting from instagram at the moment. The constant effort some people make is incredible, and makes me realise how half hearted I am
sometimes most of the time. I've also started drinking green tea. Well, like today, I started today! Does anyone else? Do you think you get any benefit from drinking it? I know it's no magic potion but wanted to know if it's any good.
Happy Thursday folks! :)
