Breaking the fast

This is the story of the "food coma" that is the end of Ramadan. Yes, Ramadan finally ended and we celebrated it in true "Eid Mubarak" fashion: shameless non-stop eating of course! I'm telling you, my baby fats were overjoyed I can hear them yell "Oh yeah!"
The Rundown : Ihop opened its first ever branch here in the desert and I fell in love with hefty breakfast all over again // Choosing yummy meatballs and salmon from Ikea Food over picking up new things for the apartment // Went Japanese for dinner. Those shrimp tempura were so good I didn't mind the allergies that came after // Baked an extra sinful moist chocolate cake for our friends to celebrate the long break // Downed two boxes of Domino's and chicken wings while watching feel-good movies on tv. The life!

You may have probably noticed already, but these photos (together with my consistent food-focused blog posts as of late) basically sum up how my "Fit into the bridesmaid's dress" mission went further down the spiral. In short, I ended up gaining back all the pounds I lost and more during the last few weeks. Trying to stay positive though. After all I still have roughly nine months to get into shape anyway. Keeping my fingers crossed.

My five-day staycation was sweet, laid-back, quiet, and as much as I want to stretch it further it officially ended its course today. Missing it loads as I crawled myself back to work this morning. It was a struggle but I couldn't be more excited to get back into the groove of things. Busy days ahead!

Eid Mubarak, everyone! :)
