Time for a walk

Due to the fact that I'm working my little butt off and receiving no payment, I have developed this twisted psychological trait that I can't shake. I have been eating as much and as elaborately as I can out of the family fridge as that, and accommodation, is my only reward for working so hard. I've only just discovered that I feel that food is my currency here and if I eat a lot, it justifies all the things I do for free here. I know its insane, but I honestly can't stop myself, I tried for about a week and felt miserable so decided just not to fight it and wait until a weeks to become healthy again. 

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!

Im sure its just the "camera angle" at least thats what I blames it on...or "I just dont take a good photo"....rarely is it "I'm a barge arse!" Maybe schmecky could make a business out of our family when she gets back? Baino and I need serious work!

Good luck with your quest, I am sure your muscles will remember the old days and get back in shape in no time with a little exercise! Much fun to be had ahead of you, it's wonderful!

At least I have some of the most beautiful cities in the world to use as my motivation as opposed to a TV on the gym treadmill!

erm: forgive me for being so ultra newfangled and forward to suggest this:~ but why don't you insist on a job where you do get paid? C'mon!!

Excellent Adventures said...

Gledwood: You do have a point but unfortunately, not many people want to take someone on for 4 weeks and I'm too nice to lie and say I'm here for longer. This 'job' is the best of two bad situations, only here for 6 more days anyway! Nice to meet you!
