Following my embarrassing and poorly executed Carb Nite / Carb Back-Loading experiment this June and July where I actually ended up fatter at the conclusion of the experiment than when I started, the BJJ Cavewife and I did a little bit of traveling to Germany and Croatia (I’ve been sneaking travel pictures into my Random Reading Posts).
While travel is a great opportunity to see the world, experience different cultures, and broaden horizons… it’s frankly terrible for weight loss. Of course I ended up putting on a few extra pounds at the end of this trip.
