I am normally pretty concerned about my weight. I don’t really exercise but I walk everywhere in Seattle and I try to watch what I eat (sometimes). However, now that I am in Europe I have realized that I cannot care about what I weigh and I should definitely not step on a scale. I refuse to deny myself foods and things that I may not have a chance to eat ever again. Unfortunately these things are often FULL of carbs (pastries, pasta, gelato, etc…) But this is once in a lifetime and if that means I have to hit the gym hardcore when I get back to the states then so be it. I love food. It might be what I am most looking forward to about traveling. So as you look at my pictures and my face/tummy/thighs start looking a little bit rounder it is just because I am really enjoying myself. No judging.
Yet I sincerely hope that all the walking and the 40 pound backpack will offset me stuffing my face constantly.
