Am back from beautiful HOT Italy

I'm back from beautiful, HOT, friendly Italy

I ate without thinking for one week...
I ate Pasta, Pizza, Ice Cream and drank lots of wine
I ate all things white...( and suffered ) :)

I did get to run once for 55 mins while hubby went for a meeting
I did walk KM's every day and climbed so many stairs it was scary

Today ( Sunday ) our first day home, Hubby and I went for a 10km run in the beautiful sunshine...Is such a beautiful day, we lay in the sun tanning as happy as I would be so depressed having been in Italy where the temps were over 30 degrees every day...

I climbed on the scale this morning and with all my eating I only gained 500grams
Am back on track today...
Doing the 17 DD plan for two weeks as I need to detox from all the sugar.

8 weeks to my South African * Summer * holiday...
I cant wait.

The way I see it, isn't necessarily the way you see it.


  1. I can't wait to see some pictures from Italy.

  2. I think it is so odd to as I ate pizza, pasta & ice cream in Italy for a week straight & came back with no gain. They must do something to there food!!!Lol What did u think of the pizza??? Glad you are back!

  3. I lived in Italy when I was two and three! I wish I could go back now.

  4. so glad you had a nice trip,with lots of oh so yummy sounding food!!!!
    i know how excited you must feel to be going "back home" in 8 weeks!!!
    great job on running with the hubs btw!!!

  5. Glad you had a good trip! The weather here is so great right now, isn't it?

  6. Welcome home, great to hear you had such a great time.

  7. So glad you had a great time, and that it was hot for you (YAY!). That's awesome that you got to enjoy some splurging with your diet and only have a small gain. You are so disciplined and driven that I know you'll have that teensy bit off in no time.

  8. Am glad you enjoyed yourself and gave yourself freedom while in Italy! Your pictures are gorgeous!!

  9. Great blog, Marcy. I am now following. Thank you for the nice comment on my Happy Me Stress Free blog also :)
