I'm back from holidays

Sunday, July 29, 2012

My holidays were wonderful...
I spent 5 days on the Croatian coasts in a small apartment with its own private beach with my family and a friend of my kids, and my best friend stayed in the neighborhood with her family too.
We had a wonderful weather, though there was a very strong wind (Bora) in the first two days.

Here are a few pictures:

I followed my exercise plan: did not run, instead walked 1-2 hours and swam 1 hour every day.
I had no food plan: ate lots of vegetables and fruits, but drank diet soda and dined out every evening (fish or other seafood, mostly with fries - and beer).
This is my typical vacation lifestyle and the result is typical too: I got myself 2 kg heavier in 5 days.
But I returned to my nutrition plan yesterday, and lost 0.7 kg of the water weight already.
I hope I'll get rid of another 0.5 by tomorrow morning or else I'm out of the Columbus Day Maintainer Challenge right at the start!

I didn't sleep as much as I wanted to: I had about 7 - 7.5 hours of sleep every night and never took a nap. I always take 1-2 hour afternoon naps when I'm on holidays, but not now. Instead I read Book 2 and 3 of Game of Thrones, it is so fascinating I could hardly put my e-book down.

    That looks like a beautiful place to visit for vacation. I'm glad that you enjoyed it and weren't too strict with yourself about lifestyle!

    Sounds like you had a good time. I have been watching The Game of Thrones on HBO, but I have the ebooks ready to read.

    I'm glad to hear that you had a pleasant vacation.

    I get to read the printed book two of GOT after our son, and then Judith finish it. Maybe one day I'll break down and get a Kindle. Are you managing to keep all the characters matched up with their names as you read.

    This is what I term, "wow". You had a swell time during your holidays, it was worth it. I hope to also get a short holiday one of these days.

    Woohoo - beautiful photos - it sounds like a wonderful vacation. Don't worry - the weight will drop quickly now that you are back on your plan. Have a great week.
