What on earth is Operation Skinny Cow?

Operation Skinny Cow was born after a few of us in Blogland decided it might be nice to lose some weight and/or get a bit fitter. We decided it would be even nicer if we encouraged each other along the way.

You can read about how it started in this post.

And the whole holiday was not about food... (HJ)

... but much of it was.

As an international traveller I can tell you lots about complimentary breakfasts.

1. Continental Breakfast - either the hotel is cheap, or I am. Dry toast and soggy cereal and maybe a croissant if you're lucky. Why bother?

2. English Breakfast - toast and eggs and bacon and baked beans and maybe a grilled tomato. Pretty darn good!

3. Asian Breakfast - all of the above, plus various noodle and stir-fry dishes, roti canai (an indian bread with yummy sauce stuff), pancakes, danishes (in one place bread and butter pudding!?!) A choice of omlette or eggs the way you like them (boiled, fried, scrambled), rice porridge etc, etc, etc. Really yummy and lots of it and you don't actually need lunch.

4. American Breakfast - the last hotel we stayed at had a buffet Amercian breakfast. I was interested to see what it included to make it different to the Asian ones we'd been having. The main difference was that the food was cold and there wasn't as much choice. I don't know if the food being cold was done on purpose, but srispy cold hash browns don't really cut it (and I LOVE hash browns).

Anyway, I'm giving myself three weeks before I think about getting on the scales, because I DON'T WANT TO KNOW. Okay with everybody?

Not weighing in until I'm home (HJ)

Things have been busy. I have been comfort eating instead of taking time to rest. I am now on holidays and let's face it, I'm not going to weigh in until I'm home. I might not even do it then if I end up doing a food tour of Malaysia. Thankfully they don't yet make the passengers get on the scales before they board the plane.

See you all later!!
