Holiday health kick???

Regular readers will know I'M GOING ON HOLIDAYS!!!!

Yup. Just 3 more sleeps in my own bed before I board this:

Read it and weep, people!

So. I will be away on a floating smorgasbord for over 3 weeks, followed by a stay in Beijing (a.k.a. home of Peking Duck). How do I reconcile holidays with weight loss/maintenance??

First up, I give up any notion of losing weight. While I don't want to undo all my hard work, I will give myself a break. If I can come home within cooee of 70kg, I'll be a happy girl.

I will use the gym on this floating palace. It looks nice:

There is also a lap pool:

and a jogging track:

I will be restrained at the buffet:

So I can enjoy my Peking Duck in Beijing and Yum Cha in Hong Kong:

But I might climb a lot of stairs:

Wish me luck for 4 weeks without scales!!!!

What are your holiday weight "maintenance" tips?
What's the best holiday you've ever been on?


  1. Relax and enjoy. Life is too short to worry about a few pounds. Besides, you'll pick it up again, refreshed, once you return.

  2. You will be well on your way and enjoying yourself. I'm going to take dibs that despite the food, yes you will relax, but you will just want to get active too, and that gym will get a major workout. Looking forward to hearing about it.
