If I read one more magazine that cites actresses like Liv Tyler and Kate Winslet as being “bigger”, I’m going to scream. I think what they really mean is “not corpse-like in their thinness”. I mean they are hardly porkers, are they? I’d be pretty damn happy to be as fat as Kate Winslet.
The other day I wore a pair of knickers to work and they felt a bit baggy. I checked the size tag (when I went to the loo, of course. I don’t wander around the office checking my knicker tags). They were a size 20-22. Luckily they had good, boingy elastic or they’d have been around my knees. Time to clean out the undie drawer, I think.
This was so cute: the other day I walked to work and a little boy came out his front door with his mum. He started walking beside me, swinging his arms with all his might and I realised he was racing me. So I picked up my pace and he picked up his. We were neck and neck until we got to the corner when I sent him back to his mum. But really I could have whipped his ass, cos he was only three!
I tried on some cute sun dresses yesterday and they were all too small – *sob*. What’s with that? I felt like such a lump. Well a couple fitted but they had high waists with gathering and that just makes me look preggers. The others barely fit over my boobs which was weird because normally my problemest area is my belly. My sister reassuringly told me it was the cut of the dresses, not me but I still pouted quite a bit.
Since rejoining Calorie King, I’ve been worried that I don’t eat enough protein. I should be having around 100 grams a day and barely get 50 grams. I hate the idea of supplements so am thinking of ways to get more in my diet. It surprises me how some foods you think of being high in protein aren’t – like chocolate, damn it. And yoghurt – a tub of yoghurt (well the Jalna one I have in the fridge at work) has 10 grams of protein. For the same calories, I’m having steak for dinner with 30 grams of protein. For half the calories, I’m having a coffee with the same amount of protein. Maybe I need to drink more flat whites!
I just bought tickets to see The Grates. Is anyone else into them? Great gym music. But bloody Ticketek — $8 handling fee. What a gyp!
I went to my old gym on the weekend. In one way, it’s stupid to pay to go there when I am already paying for my gym membership at Fitness First, but it saves going into the city on the weekend. I did a Pump class for the first time in months. Ouch! I thought it would be okay because I’ve been doing weights but not so. Still it didn’t seem to be as intense as I remember.
