The week that was - Celebrating three years of marriage and a great holiday!

Since all good things, come to end, my holiday did too! The Scientist and I celebrated three years of marriage at the Taj, Kovalam a removed beach in Trivandrum, Kerela, and it was a a good way to celebrate. The Taj lives up to its reputation of fine hospitality and treated us well for our vacation.

We had taken a week off work, and first packed off to Chennai, where I was to attend a cousins baby shower last Sunday. I fished many compliments for weight loss :). Monday was spent in the company of my grandmother, who is the the only remaining part of my childhood summer vacation memories. Monday was also the day, the Scientist indulged the shopper in me to some very pretty sarees, pictures of which will come later. We took the flight out of Chennai on tuesday afternnon, and landed amidst never-ending coconut groves on the coast of the Arabian Sea in Trivandrum, Kerela. 

My plans of eating sensibly, exercising and keeping my food journal was lost somewhere deep in the ocean or high on a coconut palm :)

With a beautiful beach, grand buffets and a luxurious room, even little Chittu was not demanding about venturing into the city. We however did not miss the ancient Padmanabhaswamy Temple and many kilos of banana chips.

I weighed myself this morning and saw 80.2kgs. Up from a low of 78.6 kgs. I will go back to the gym tomorrow morning  and revert to my healthy ways after grocery shopping in a few hours from now.

Regular blogging will resume tomorrow.

I will leave you with some pictures, while I catch up with unread blogs.
