Old pic. Old problem. New me? I’m on one of those healthy living kicks again. I’ve no idea why I keep putting myself through this. Oh yea because I’m unhealthy. I eat crap, I feel crap and I just want to do better. Be better.
No bulls**t here, I just want everyone to be happier. I know, I specifically said no more happy clappy BS!I would love to say I want everyone to be happy but until there is a massive cultural shift, we’ll never be content. We want this, we want that, we want more, we want better. And while that idea is aspirational (marketing companies depend on it), it’s also destructive. There’s no shame in yearning for more and wanting to be better. It’s what drives most of us to get on with life. It’s what gets me up in the mornings knowing that…
Compliments are like a drug. I would say that I don’t get that many compliments but it’s more likely that I don’t hear them when I get them. But I definitely heard them when I had this purple hair.
They watch as it grows up, not down, defying gravity Not understanding the magnitude of what they actually see
I feel completely different to the person in Part One of this little series who was chasing a short-term goal of looking good in swimwear. I can lie and say that I was trying to be healthy, I told this lie, which isn’t completely a lie but it wasn’t my main priority. Who doesn’t want to feel like all the other skinny girls flaunting their flat stomachs in bikinis during the day and wearing bodycon dresses out to the bar at night? That’s what I wanted when I went away on my friend’s hen do. But it didn’t take long…
So about 4 weeks ago, I made the blog announcement that I was going to try and lose weight. That I was going to embark on this grand healthy lifestyle situation. Update: Not going so well.
I’ve noticed that even though I’ve been attempting to eat better my weight isn’t budging. I am maintaining which would be great if I was happy with it but I really do think I could do with being a little lighter and definitely shedding some inches around my waist. I mean, I like the idea of reducing the risk of diabetes, cancer and heart disease. Just saying!
