Wow, didn’t Sunday come around fast?
I planned to write this post on Friday, as usual, but work was a little hectic. The last three weeks of my life have been filled with talk of nipple tassels, bikinis, sexual titillation, lapdancing and hearing Rod Stewart songs being sang to a jury (“If you want my body..” is forever stuck in my head).
Seriously. If you’re interested, here’s the story.
Other than work, which has been mental, I’ve been down in the dumps. I kind of assumed that cutting the excessive coconut and nut butter from my diet would immediately transform me into a supermodel but apparently there was still some weight gaining to be done instead. Hmph.
I’m now the heaviest I’ve been for three years and I feel so flipping stressed about it. Not because I am that fussed about a bit of extra squidge personally – but because I’m a bridesmaid in three months. My dress has been made and currently, I simply don’t fit in to it.
Yesterday I enquired if a little “extra room” could be made. The answer was that the dresses have been made to “fit like a glove”, the fabric has “already been cut”. So in short, no.
I’m trying to stay calm, tell myself my body will return to its former measurements, that I have enough time, not to panic. I know I have to lose this weight very slowly in order to keep my cycle – sometimes I worry I’m so conscious of that I’m giving myself excuses to remain the same (or worse apparently).
Still, tomorrow is that start of a new week, today is a new day. Time to dust myself off, get out there and focus on something other than this, to stop the stress squeezing my chest from dawn until dusk.
Here’s a few snapshots of last week:
Apple muffins are officially my breakfast favourites. Can’t get enough!
A colourful, crunchy and delicious lunch.
I’ve stopped buying coffee out and started making myself one blooming good one in the morning. So worth it!
Grilled chicken, avocado and stir fried veggies.
Leftover grilled chicken and veggies.
The best meal of the week – salmon, sweet potato fries, avo and salad.
Raw chocolate tastes so good!
