The family buy fatty, chocolatey, greesy food and eat minimal vegetables, so naturally, as a result of my unstoppable gorging, i have put on a fair amount of weight. Now, I can't blame the last month only for this weight gain, I think a little too much fun involving alcohol in South America and a little too much fun involving hot dogs and donuts in North America may also have contributed. But I am feeling disgusting, unhealthy, unfit and am in dire need of some fresh fruit and veggies and daily exercise. This will come to me in the form of a friend named Schmecky. I'm meeting her in just over a week at Heathrow to fly to Amsterdam and continue my travels throughout Europe and apparently she's already bought a pair of trainers and is planning some long walking tours through each city we're visiting, including an 18km walk in some forest in Slovenia, as well as a tour through some underground caves. The plan is too lose the weight I've gained in the last 6 months in less than 2 and come home looking tanned, slim and healthy! Good luck Schmeck, you're the only one who can make me do it!
After - damn the temptation of beer!
