VACATION TIME AGAIN?

You can always tell when it’s vacation time, can’t you? Strikes at airports; some family member going down with Summer ‘flu and/ or enteritis and hordes of holidaymakers (moi included!) beginning to resemble, in more ways than one, Percy Pig above…

DO YOU MANAGE TO RETURN FROM VACATION THE SAME WEIGHT AS YOU LEFT? WHAT’S YOUR SECRET? TO MANGLE OSCAR WILDE’S OBSERVATION, HOW DO YOU MANAGE TO RESIST EVERYTHING BUT TEMPTATION?

Happy Ruby Tuesday to everyone in Australia, New Zealand and the Far East where it’s already Tuesday!
And do visit other Ruby Tuesday posts! (Links at Work of the Poet.)
Enjoy!
XOXO LOLA:)

PS See you again for Alphabe-Thursday!

Cutie pie(g).
Just the right kind of pink.

I normally put on more weight at home during summers, I like BBQs and picknicks.
When I'm traveling, I'm so busy seeing and inhaling new impacts, I don't have much time for gaining weight.

I always lose weight when I travel - I guess I'm not mooching around the kitchen, snacking. Perhaps I should just give up my real life and live on vacation permanently!

Michelle said...

Marvellous post - Lola and PP! Priceless lol

Jan said...

Holly said...

Happy RT, Nora! I like your pink pig. I like pigs in general; I used to raise them for my high school FFA projects.

I lost seven pounds on this holiday. Five on the ship and two here in London at Karen's.
On the ship I ate mostly, and a lot of it, seafood entrees.

Great post. Thank you.

Happy RT.

Thanks Lola for Ruby's Birthday wishes. So nice of you to stop by.

And no, I can't resist the temptations whether I am on vacation or not;-)

Mike said...

I have to confess Percy Pig and I have rather a lot in common! 8-)

tania said...

Why do so many tourists in the sun end up the same colour as Percy Pig? Ugh! :(

reg said...

Liz said...

Percy is a cutie!
I usually lose - too much running around and no time to eat. :) That's a good thing.

Great stuff. Ilove vacations.

Ralph said...

To me, the best and most relaxing part of a vacation is where the biggest decision of the day is deciding where to eat.

Losing weight is a job, and isn't a vacation the tome to get away from work of all kinds...

Lesa said...

Oink oink, Percy! No, my weight doesn't change much no matter where I'm at-- I stay active and stop eating when I am full. I lose weight when in a blogging frenzy-- I forget to eat!

Thanks for visiting my RT!

Marites said...

that pig looks so cute!!! You're so right about summers:) have a good week! my RT is here.

paige said...

Yes, in a big way. I trekked through the Andes for five days while carrying all my stuff and STILL managed to gain weight. WHERE IS THE JUSTICE IN THAT??

maryt/theteach said...

Lola and Nora, a pink pig on the phone - what could be better!! :)

Natasha said...

How funny-I have just been discussing this with my mum. We both walk everywhere we go, without fail and we try not to eat desserts after a night-time meal. It seems to work for us.

Happy Tuesday!

best wishes,
Natasha.

Oh, so cute! I hardly travel, and if I travel we just go savvy >.<

Your question: The voting has to be done by sms sadly.. there will be a code at the right hand side of the page which will appear in 11 hours time. Do gather as many people as you can =)

And, in your comment you said to get as many here to do so too(I'm guessing you have a video), you did not give me any link to your video..

Warm hugs and kisses,
Berlin

Dave said...

lovely fun picture and very sweet post.

@nemonen said...

Lovely picture and I love the song I can listen to on your blog. Can you tell me the name of the song. Have a nice day.

Meri said...

I came back from Italy five pounds lighter. The secret? I don't eat much, though I eat a bit of whatever looks good including gelato. But I walked to the point that I was in chronic pain from hip to ankle on my left side. I need a knee replacement. I think if it didn't hurt all the time and I walked as much regularly as I did in Italy, I'd drop the excess.

Marice said...

LOL! i hear you! thats one battle that is so hard to overcome!

u may view mine too here

Thanks for your kind words on my blog. I'm glad you had a great time in Australia. We certainly are spoilt with great cuisine here.

Hi Nora and Lola...

Thanks for your recent post on my blog :) It's definitely not vacation time on this side of the globe, but seasonal changes are a sure thing, so soon I'll be basking in the sun again! I can't wait for that :)

Actually I hope to be flying your way next year. I miss Andalusia. It feels much like home there. Without my little fur baby in my life now, it's all possible...

Thanks for all your blog support! Annaliese xx

Hi Nora and Lola,

Love your sweet Percy Pig and yes, it is hard not to come back a little heavier, when you have been enjoying all the tempting food about.
I do like to try and get some walking in though to walk off some of the calories.

Happy Ruby Tuesday and I hope that your week is going well.

Hugs
Carolyn

what is holidays without good food? But if you combine with longs of traveling, tracking. You shouldn't gain too much weight.
