Post Holiday Lull

I am so very tired.

Our holiday was lovely. The villa was nice and the pool was huge. We were pretty much in the middle of nowhere, but still only 10 minutes away from civilisation, if we wanted. Turns out we didn’t! We only went out twice during the week, then spent the day we left out before heading to the airport. Other than that we were at the villa doing a lot of nothing.

Or rather as it happens a lot of eating crap (crisps and sweets mainly) and drinking, watching Spanish tv that we didn’t understand a word of, swimming and getting tan.

But it was nice! 🙂

The 11:20pm flight home turned up late and ended up being about an hour late. Then our bags were delayed when we got to Bristol so we didn’t get home until 3:30am Sunday morning. I slept most of Sunday away and spent all day yesterday trying not to fall asleep at my desk while catching up on emails and getting the weekly newsletter out. Last night was a collapse-in-a-heap night until about 8pm when I finally managed to get up and sort my hair out (lemon juice really does get the green out) and take a bath. I didn’t get to bed as early as I’d have liked, but I still slept reasonably well, unlike poor Hubby who ended up going in the second bedroom so he didn’t disturb me with his lack of sleep. Bless!

That brings us to today. Today I managed to get up at 6am, relatively awake and ready to start my day. How very unlike me! I did Wii Boxing for 20 minutes, where I managed to actually knock out the guy I can NEVER beat in one go and then I couldn’t beat him again so on it goes. I’m just stuck between 1450-1550 and can’t seem to break through. Very frustrating!

Tonight I’m off to the gym and hoping to be just as awake and energetic tomorrow morning when I need to run. For the first time in what seems like forever (a month or two at least). I’m not sure just how much running I will end up doing, but hey, I’ll do something!

Tomorrow is Wednesday and I will have a weigh in. I managed to gain about 5lbs last week (even with the nearly 17 hours of swimming and 7000+ calories burned from it – just goes to show I really was eating a lot of crap) so I’m dealing with that on top of the 14lb goal.

I’m not beating myself up over it or anything. I enjoyed every minute of my holiday and am not apologising for it. I’m just going to work harder. Anyway, 2lbs have already gone, so I’m not too worried!
