Five pounds in two and a half days

My labor day weekend was a pseudo-honeymoon. Honeymoon because we really didn’t do anything special after our wedding. And pseudo because we really wanted to go someplace neither one of us has been before like Alaska or our dream destination, the Galapagos Islands. But funds and my lack of vacation time is a barrier to all options at the moment.

Yet we still needed a vacation and some time away from San Diego. The runner-up? San Francisco.

Earlier this year when I visited San Francisco, I explored the city on my own while Paul was working. I thought a second trip was in order to revisit the city and share some of the scenery with him. Unfortunately I didn’t realize that even 2 and a half days in San Francisco would amount to me gaining 5 lbs. Gah!

I blame it on the all- you-can-eat shabu shabu, donut muffin, macaroon, cupcakes, hamburgers, donuts and ice cream I consume. Yes, all that in in less than three days.

Regardless of the food consumed and the weight gained (which I immediately lost the week after thank-you-very-much), I’ll leave you with some photos from the trip until I post about the food adventures.
