In case anyone has been questioning the radio silence on this blog, I wanted to let you know that I’ve just returned from a week long vacation out of town during which I attempted to fully disconnect from work, from school, and from dieting.
Other than a few emails to and from my Director, checking my final grades for the spring term, and the occasional moment of guilt as I walked past the hotel gym eating popcorn, I managed to do all three.
I took a total hiatus from calorie-counting, carb-watching, and Paleo-adherence and enjoyed a week of eating what I wanted, when I wanted, and savoring the local delights of a new city.
I’m pleased to say that I LOST weight. Yep, you read that correctly: I ate freely and lost weight.
I was 133.2 the morning I left for the trip (Wednesday) and returned home on Sunday night (yes, an evening weigh-in!) at 131.8.
Walking the city instead of using public transport helped, plus I tended to savor each delicacy I tried – thus consuming less because I ate slowly and allowed myself to feel full naturally.
I had a great trip and enjoyed the detachment, but I must admit I’m glad to be home. I missed my regimen!
Although, I can’t lie: this pizza alone makes me want to move north:
Yum!! Stuffed pizza, as if regular pizza wasn’t bad enough! Haha.
It’s good to be back, my friends. Bon appetit!
