I'm back from vacation and I've pretty much gained back those few kgs that took me about 2.5 weeks of hard work to get rid of. I knew I was going to gain weight in that week since I didn't exercise at all as we were staying at a friend's house and the environment was just not condusive to doing plyo, and I ate a bunch of unhealthy food.
Exhibit one, several servings of the famous Berlin Currywurst:
Exhibit two, several servings of Germknödel (yeast dough dumplings with sweet filling):
Way too many serving of cocktails:
A trip to the legendary Burgermeister in Berlin:
A rather delicious Shawarma in Kreuzberg:
Combined with going out to dinner many times (Spanish, Greek, Vietnamese, Arab) and sugary breakfasts, the damage is done. I don't totally regret it, it was my vacation after all and food plays a huge part of my vacations since I want to try all the local specialties.
But now I wonder if it was really all worth it since I know how much work I have to put in to get back to where I was before. The weather was absolutely atrocious when we were there so I didn't even get to wear my cute mini skirt that I bought especially for clubbing, or some of my cute summer outfits I worked so hard to fit into again! Haha, oh well...
Back at home now and I'm seriously craving healthy food again in moderate portion sizes. I immediately felt how after gorging on way too much food that my body doesn't really need, I felt so sluggish and I noticed I had to go to the bathroom way more. I guess it's a fast way to see that your body is trying to get rid of the excess crap - literally. Blech.
I'm going to do a hardcore session of Plyometrics now and get back on healthy, lean food and plenty of vegetables. I feel like I've been drowning in sugar the past week, be it in the form of cocktails, condiments, sugary sauces, white bread and sweets.
