I’ve been home for a week and a half now, and my routine has settled back to more or less what it was before I flew out. But it’s time for a proper shake up because my food choices in America have meant I’ve come back more and I want to be less.
On the day I arrived home I was five American pounds pounds heavi than when I left. Why ‘American pounds’ and not kilograms? Because they’re on loan – they’ll never really be mine. America can have them back.
I’m 2 pounds down already – yay for water weight! But I have a far more stubborn 2 and a bit more to go.
So I’m going to really watch my consumption of sugary- and fatty-goodness. I’ll be upping my running – and the other training I’ll be getting into next week will be great, too.
After seeing fellow NZ resident supergenericgirl’s post on the kind of runs we need to see (more of) in NZ, I remembered workmates talking about Round the Vines – a 10km (21km) run around Martinborough’s many gorgeous vineyards with the odd
bit of sneaky wine tasting drink station.
Running and wine?!
Okay… Not the best combo for weight loss, or hydration, but you only live once, right?)
I signed up with a friend and we’re running it on 17 March – the day after being out on the water for this year’s dragon boating competition. Oh yes, we’re suckers for punishment.
Anyone else in the area who want to join us?
