I tend to loose weight on my holidays too... but they do tend to involve a lot of physical activity and no sitting behind the computer all day :-)

Mine are delicately balanced between more general activity (running is supplemented by swimming, walking and shouting at my daughter) and more food and drink due to eating out twice every day.

quick question ....
can anyone explain the causes behind and the cure for the afternoon slump (mainly post run afternoon slump)

I get a big drained feeling (could easily have closed my eyes in this afternoons meeting!) and then hit the food which i know is so wrong on all levels!

v-rap we don't want to know about your smutty habits!

hann that is so tempting! Don't think today was helped by a hot hot run that was hard work due to lack of energy and air!

Smutty? The only thing smutty is the state of the sheets when I've been eating chocolate in bed :P
