Anyhow, I digress. The Honeymoon was Amazing.
We went to Lanzarote which we both absolutely love and adore. We know the area well and didn't do any of the tourist stuff. We slept. We ate. We drank. We sunbathed.
It's probably best told in pictures.

|oh boy, this was sheer heaven on a plate!|
|probably the healthiest meal of the whole Honeymoon!|
I have to be honest and admit to eating utter crap pretty much the whole time I was there (if you haven't already guessed!!!!!) But you know what? I don't regret a single minute of it. We both needed this time together and I was prepared for the inevitable gain on the scales on my return. I wasn't able to run as often as I had back in June as this time it was soooooooooooo hot. That, mixed with eating crap and drinking wine every single day contributed to a 9 pound gain.
I dropped 3 pounds within a couple of days thus proving the flying bloat is real, but since then I have really struggled to get back on track. I start most days with good intentions but by lunchtime it generally goes out the window.
Must. Try. Harder.
I'm not going to start beating myself up too much just yet but I DO need to get a grip.
Despite all that, I'm not letting it spoil the memories of my Honeymoon. I will leave you with these :)
