one week chocolate free!
how fun! I made it! And I almost made it on the coke, its been 4 days coke free : )
I told my Boy that I havent had chocolate for a whole week, and whilst he was impressed, he was a little concerned too 'you didnt used to eat THAT much chocolate, did you?' No, but the chocolate represents! The 'no chocolate' represents a commitment to a healthy lifestyle.
Yesterday I joined the cheap gym! And cheap it is. They had a special on, $450 for the whole year if you paid upfront. It is a little dodgy and kinda smells like Glen 20, but that means its clean, right? hehe. And all the big muscle men are in a separate room to the cardio machines. whoo hoo! With my membership, I get 10% off Rebel Sport, so I purchased some cross trainers. Its the first pair of REAL sports shoes I think I have ever bought, all my other runners are 'fashion' shoes. I was a little pissed at the lack of choice in women's sport shoes though. Walls and walls of mens shoes, and a little corner dedicated to women, and all of those were ug-ly! I dont think the guy at Rebel appreciated me telling him this, but its true. Why cant they make cross trainers that look as cute as the fashion runners?
And whilst I was in the mood to spend money on myself, I purchased 'The lazy girls guide to losing weight and getting fit' A.J Rochester. I've been wanting to buy this for a long time but always felt a little embarrassed, but lately I've just been thinking 'fuck it'. Much like how I went to the beauty salon to get a bikini wax (a g-string bikini wax actually, I had to ask the 16 year old girl exactly what that was, ha!). I normally wax myself because I've never wanted the skanky teen girls looking at my fat thighs but 'fuck it' - they chose to wax fannies (the australian fanny, not the US fanny, although they wax those too) so they can look at my fat fanny : )
(and I feel a little bad calling them skanky, but at this particular place, they really are all skanky. All of them are under 20, wear shit lots of sparkly make up, big hoop earrings, and BIG hair.. they crack me up)
So far, the lazy girls guide is exactly what I need. She is spot on about how I want to do lose weight and get fit and healthy (minus the processed, pre-prepared foods she seems to advocate in the beginning, but I guess it does make life easier and its better than chinese take-out)
I could write a huge post on the lazy girls guide, but I'll save it until I've finished it.
Got to go do the washing before I can hit the gym. tah tah!
