First weigh in of the year






Well. I can’t say I didn’t know that I was putting on weight, but I didn’t think it would be that high. I honestly thought I would be sitting around 70 point something, but certainly not over 71. Wow. See what being in denial does to a woman?

Lets try this for an excuse… Last Saturday night my Sister-In-Law (SIL) had a little 2015 party to kick off the new year. We had a great time before I jumped in the pool and hit my head on something hard. VERY hard. It went a little like this. Fortunately my SIL and her hubby were right there to scoop me up out of the water. Unfortunately I spent the next week looking like I’d been beaten within an inch of my life.

Some people would call me a narcissist (those people are RUDE!), however I like to think that I have a healthy interest in looking my very best. At all times. Including sleeping, swimming, going to the gym* etc. BH and I had been together for 3 years before I was able to go “natural” (please note while this link did not win, it deserves an honorable mention)

Now, back to me being beautiful – I am not one of those people that uses their looks to get what they want.

Unless I can, in which case, yes, I certainly WOULD like:  that free sample of whatever you are pushing / to jump ahead of you in the queue / the best table in the restaurant / free coffee / a better test result than I had originally received / a discount on my car insurance …. the list goes on. Don’t judge me, I am sure you do the same!

Anywhooooo, with my superpower being severely diminished, and people feeling comfortable asking “What happened to your face?!” in horrified tones at Coles, I felt it was best for me to bunker down, admit myself to voluntary seclusion from the public and society and avoid any reflective surfaces. Which meant that I sat on the lounge training for a marathon.

I am embarrassed to say that I have put on weight. A lot. A lot of weight. And I am not happy. I have no one to blame but myself. And the interstate move. And my head injury. And chocolate.

BUT – you will be pleased to know that I am now committed to SKINNY GIRL IN THE MAKING 2015 and am looking forward to dropping the kilos again before my birthday in February.

Lets put it out there. I will be 65kgs by February 22nd.

Today I have eaten 1 egg mixed with a “teaspoon” of no fat mayo, 2 long black coffees, I am having angus beef mince with vegetables for lunch, and steak and veggies for dinner. I’ve already downed 2 bottles of water, and have been to the bathroom 4 times.

Keep your fingers crossed for me!

*HAHAHAHAHHAHAAHAHAHAH surely you know by now that I DO NOT go to the gym!
