I love home even though I had a fantastic time in Tassie. Did I mention in my last post dinner with Mary, Brooke, Phil and Linda on Thursday night? Great fun 🙂
Went swimming and my tan washed off 😦 Not totally but some.
My Nan’s birthday lunch was great. Caught up with family and had an awesome time. Then went to visit other family (on my dad’s side). Haven’t seen some of them for about 15 years or more.
The rest of the time I spend sleeping and watching telly and eating. I’ve put on 3 kgs although I only weighed myself tonight so hopefully after some proper hydration and sleep, it won’t be so bad. It’s terrible when you’re visiting Mum. She cooks all your favourite food and there’s not much else to do but eat. I did minimal exercise too – Saturday and Sunday I walked down to get coffee (it’s so very hard to get decent coffee in the remote wilderness of Tasmania), taking the dog with me. It was a fair distance but took forever what with sniffing at poles and leg cocking. The dog slowed me down too!!!
Today I went for a run. We went out to a picnic ground in the bush and I had a 30 min run around the bush tracks and roads. That was awesome. I always think I hate running in the bush but when I do it, I love it.
One of the hardest parts of the holiday was getting so many compliments on my weight loss. What weight loss? I’ve put on weight. It was hard but I didn’t say it to anyway – just accepted the compliments graciously 🙂 I felt like a total fraud though.
