I have a lover, and his name is Pizza. He's hot, and sometimes spicy, cheesy, fulfilling and sometimes is the only one I want to hang out with in bed on a Friday night after a particularly rough week.
It's scary how close the following clip is to my mental state sometimes!
But while Julia's out buying bigger jeans, I'm looking to downsize mine. Not because I am ashamed of my body, I've learned a long time ago that I'll never be a size 2, me as a skeleton wouldn't fit into a size two!
Today is day #1 of diet attempt #2 for the year 2012.
Thinking back to the 11 pounds I lost earlier this year, I'm sad that all the headway I made, was lost after the car crash I sustained back in January which has left me at times, a shell of who I used to be. Chronic pain and headaches are no way to go through life, that much I can assure you.
Two years ago, I wore a bikini top in public, I'm ready to be that brave again, and I have 39 days to get back to where I can feel comfortable doing so again. It's 39 days until I have an event I would like to display that bravery. Will I make it, I don't know, am I going to try to, you bet your bottom dollar I am.
It's not going to be easy, and I will likely be one cranky redhead for the next 39 days, but crankiness can be soothed away with success, and I'm counting on that helping me through. I did it before, and hopefully I can do it again.
I can't exercise like I used to due to the pain I'm in. And the complete and total havoc working out causes my body every time I try to do the things I used to doesn't help either, but I'm going to give it my best shot. Optimisms key I think.
So if the tone around here is ever so skewed momentarily, bare with me, and let me apologize for any bitterness that you might hear underlying in my words, in advance!
I'll do my best to not be a total crankypants!
I had nine almonds for breakfast, and so it begins!
Wish me luck if you will.
