The one shoulder hug

Today after work I went down into Enemy Territory (otherwise known as the other cafe at the farmvillage; our competitor) because it was cold and windy and I really needed a drink. I ordered a vodka and cranberry juice and was sitting there merrily sipping away when all of a sudden a wild Kyle* appears! (that was a smigde of humour for my fellow Megusta fans. Viva rage comics!)
I sat there with a huge I-Know-You-Know-I-Am-Underage look on my face until finally I just said "Shhh" and he laughed. Phew.
So I pretended I was all mature and old and politely asked the bartender if I could buy Kyle a shot (even though Kyle had already politely declined because he had to cycle home) and he politely said "alright" and so Kyle and I had coffee tequila shooters. Sweet Jesus it was good. My gums went all tingly!
But then when he had to go he gave me this weird one-armed awkward shoulder-nudge hug thing that kinda ruined it. But he's still on my cool list :)

Anyways. Have noticed that although I started this blog to track my dieting habits, Ive hardly spoken about it. Today was a difficult day and I did have a few little cheats (I had a bit of a millionare shortbread and cranberry juice technically counts as fruit which is not part of the eating plan) but anyways, I hardly ate much today, probably about 1000 calories, so thats good. Am content.

Amped for new years tomorrow!! having small get-together at my friend ash's house because her parents are going out. Shall be fairly entertaining.

Also: A question for anyone who reads this: Do I write too much? I noticed that alot of bloggers post mainly pictures but I like to put a bit of substance into my post. And its nice to share my thoughts. But maybe I should make my entries a bit more bite-size? I don't know... Any thoughts on this are welcome xx

Bye xx

*Kyle is a very strange very witty but wierdly attractive guy from my history class. He and I hardly ever speak but when we do we actually have a lot of fun together -teenagegirlgrinface-

Hungry Hungry I am Hungry

I actually didn't read my book at all (tsk tsk)
Phoned him for like half an hour... Well actually might as well tell you his name because I'm about to upload a picture of my face so if anyone saw this blog they'd know its me anyways.
We talked about random things for a bit but he kept getting disconnected so eventually I said I had to go -insert excuse here- and said goodbye.

AND THEN i went to the shop and bought some shiz for my new eating plan. Not a very exiting shop expedition, I can tell you. Could hardly eat anything in the shop! The only thing that really appealed to me was the pack of salmon fillets but it cost like R70 (almost $9 or 6 pounds or 7 euros for my foreign friends) so that was soooo not going to happen. Ended up with this:

Ate the smaller carton of fat free yoghurt on the way home. Tasted like puke. NEVER again.
Cooked up some chicken and made some wierd spiced sauce from the other yoghurt (excuse the chip on the plate, tried to hide it in the photograph but it sneaked in, the bugger). Not bad actually, if I do say so myself.

And finally. Thought it would be nice for those reading my blog to be able to put a face to a name.: hi! :)

Ok well thats all for now I guess.
Bye :)

So you buy a hundred balloons and then what?

Yes. We went to the Chinese Store and bought a hundred balloons and then  sat in my friend's room and blew them all up and-
And then? And then we sat there staring at them wondering what to do.
Which ended up being shoving our faces with cake (yes, me included) and watching really terrible movies.
Ok so I messed up yesterday. On the "1st day" no less, haha.  But I made up for it today. This morning one of my friends offered me a chocolate digestive biscuit (i LOVE chocolate digestive biscuits!) and weak little me took it and took a bite. AND THEN i remembered the promise I'd made to myself and I went into the kitchen and spat it out! YESSSSS, acheivement! ..Is it really sad to be proud of myself? Because I so am. Pats-self-on-the-back
And the only other thing I've eaten the whole day is a piece of steak and a spoonful of fat free cottage cheese.

I can't really concentrate on writing anything because
1. I don't even remember what time I went to bed and
2. I can't stop thinking about the movie we watched last night! It's called Hard Candy and it has that actress who i LOVE, i think her name is ellen page but i might be wrong. She was in Juno (as Juno)..Anyways this movie was so disturbing! Like you thought it was going to be about some pedophile but it ends up that SHE's the psycho and etc it goes on, much thrilling.
 We also got out Bruno but I'd already fallen asleep by the time they put it on, such is my life... I'm always the first one to fall asleep at sleep overs.

Anyways. Feel quite gross at the moment and have work tomorrow. Am going to go read my book The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice (trust me, its got nothing sparkly or Pattinsony in this book. It was written like a hindred years ago and its really cool. just saying.)

bye :)

Bright Idea!

Ok so i made a plan. Here are some photos I just took. 'spose I'll call them my BEFORE photos...
Can't believe I stole my mom's camera, searched all over the house for bateries for said camera (eventually took the ones from the tv remote) , took pictures of my Physique De Grotesque and uploaded them onto the computer just so I can put up pictures of myself onto a blog that I will probably be the only person to ever read! Madness I tell you, MADNESS!!

That will be all :)

So this is like a diary, right?

I got a journal for christmas from my parents which I was going to write in but I wanted something I can't just throw away.
I have created this blog in an attempt to confront myself about my issues with my body and also just because its nice to write down my feelings once in a while (i am a girl after all)
At the moment I weigh....Actually I havent weighed myself in months. let me go check quick.
Ok I weigh 73.5 kgs (or seeing as it seems to be the trend to use the imperial system in these blogs: 162 pounds)
Keeping in mind that it IS the festive season and i DID have three helpings of gammon on Christmas eve and have been subsisting mainly on trifle and custard for the last week, I do unfortunately see that that sounds hideously fat.
And it is.
And i shall conquer it! *triumphant fist-in-the-air

I 'spose I should start with stating my measurements before I talk about my goals, if I truly am determined to be all business-womany about this...

THIGHS: 63cm - 24 inches

BUM: 102cm - 40 inches  (yikes!)

HIPS: 94cm - 37 inches

WAIST: 69cm - 27inches

FACE: ....just kiddin :) actually it is 57cm/23inches.... does that mean i have a big head? (cheesy joke :D )

Ok so my BMI iiiiis 23.5   (im 5'10 or 1.78m tall)
 So thats healthy right?  Then why do my thighs rub together so much? Hmmm? why do my hips wobble when i walk? Healthy indeed!

I want to feel light like a feather, I want someone to scoop me into their arms.
And so I shall embark on a Diet. Yes, that sacred word that has captivated and strangled so many woman around the world. I too have fallen into the trap. And I do so at my own risk.
Tomorrow I am going to start on this thing my mom told me about. Apparently theres a whole bunch of steps and stuff and the first stage is to eat straight meat (and fat free dairy products for 5 days..yum)
I'm actually quite exited to start it but tonight I'm eating whatever I like (I'm actually eating a packet of speckled eggs right now..I love the blue ones)

I was going to upload a picture of myself but my camera is at his house. (yes, there is a him.)
And he is in Knysna right now. For three weeks.

Ok i guess i can't just write on this post for the rest of the night, got to go eat lots of fatty food while I can.

Do you say goodbye at the end of a post?
... bye :)
