My final week consisted of more reunions with friends from college, lots of walking, some more training at Renzo Gracie's Fight Academy, and lots of shopping.
The thing I've enjoyed the most about being on holiday has been the daily walking. We just don't walk in Kuwait. The weather and the landscape is just not built for it. We drive ridiculously short distances. Here, however, I haven't thought twice about going to a store or some place that's a mile or two away. Part of it is probably that I'm not in a rush, but I know that because others around me are walking as well, it doesn't feel like I'm the only one. Walking is easy. It has definitely helped me stay fit while on vacation. I've needed it to cancel off my not so clean meals.
That's another thing -- I'll really be happy going back to my kitchen. As 'fun' as it may sound to some people - not having to cook for 6 weeks and eating out for each meal - it has been tough as I'm still determined to see a loss of 5 lb when I weigh in on August 12th!
