Wow...lets just say its nothing like a holiday for some perspective. I went on a wonderful holiday...BUT I definitly drank and ate my way through central eastern europe.
Do I regret it....well the 5kg I gained over two weeks suggests I should. But I have to be honest and say I dont.
Why not you might ask? Well one really simple reason. Having a break of the routine made me realise that while I was adopting some habits that were working on the weight loss and I was getting results, and in a healthy way; it also made me realise that there were some aspects that I was getting a little obsessive about. This actually scared me a little, and it took me a couple of days to be able to enjoy having a slice of pizza in rome for example. It made me afraid as I thought, wow, will I be able to stop this when I reach my goal, or will I be looking for more. Is the lifestyle Ive adopted one of gaining goals and rigid discipline or a new healthier lifestyle.
Mostly its the lifestyle, and I think I have a healthy and balanced approach to my weight loss..but its nothing like a holiday and a relaxing break to realise the parts that were perhaps too hard on myself, and the areas where i was putting stress on myself to achieve goals and targets.
