“I haven’t seen anything lately from Essay Kay … has she finally run out of essays?” If that is what you were thinking … well no, not quite. I was busy tying up loose ends here so I can go on vacation to the beautiful island of Barbados. I had the best of intentions, I really did, but while I kept up with my cardio by walking most days, I will admit I over-indulged when it came to food. I am sorry I did not take any pictures of the meals, not only to share with you, but maybe if I had, it may have given me a moment of pause; I may have been more temperate instead of using the excuse, “Well, it is not as if I eat this every day!” Sigh.

I gained 5 pounds in 2 weeks, but that is not all I brought back with me; I also brought back some wonderful memories and I will post a few photos in my new “Barbados” section. Full disclosure: this is the country of my birth; however, the photos themselves will show you that when I say Barbados is beautiful, it is rooted in truth not bias! It is also possible to have quite a healthy vacation in Barbados with its nutritious foods and many activities, but I got caught up in nostalgia and gave in to the Barbadian soul food that I ate in my younger days.

Well, now I am back, I have no choice but to vigorously deal with the consequences of my bad behavior. Hopefully, the gym and unprocessed foods will remember who I am.

Best always,
