All that good work of walking, studying, and starving myself all winter long? It’s on its way out, and it’s not hard to understand why. All it takes is a five day road trip – a short vacation – to undo it all. Five days of sitting on my arse, holding a steering wheel, five days of this kind of thing for breakfast, five days of saying “what the hell, I’m on holiday!”
So now the trip is done. Now I must get back to work and re-double the effort to lose what was gained.
After all, not all gains are desirable.
