I'm back from my holiday! And didn't I have a lovely time? Yes, yes I did.
I'd heartily recommend Madeira to anyone. Especially a slightly plump thirtysomething that likes to lie in the sun. There are several reasons for this.
1. It is very sunny. We had pretty much 28c sunny weather every day. Verrrrry nice.
2. 98% of the other tourists there are retired which means that..
3. Even if you're a bit fat, you still look better in a bikini than the vast majority of the other people there and...
4. Even if you don't, it doesn't matter, it's not like you're on the pull; they are all pensioners!
There's nothing like lying in the sun surrounded by many old people (bless them) to make you feel like a glamorous young thing.
Unfortunately I got back to reality with a bump this morning when I weighed myself and discovered I gained 6lb over the course of the holiday. Oops. I mainly blame the amount of wine that I drank. Much more than usual, but I was on holiday so I'm not going to beat myself up over it.
Back on track - I plan to lose that weight over the next couple of weeks and then full speed ahead.
