One of the worries in my overwrought, disease-addled brain lately is that I’ve been too focussed on my holiday to Japan and I’d get home and sink into a total depression, having nothing to look forward to. Well, no more. I found out today that Neil Young is playing at the Big Day Out next year. Oh yeah, that will be too awesome.
Black jeans: I swear I have a black jeans curse – every time I buy a pair, I stack on the weight and they get too small. At the moment, I have 2 pairs in my drawer: a size 14 and a size 11. I’d really like to fit back into the size 14 jeans before I go away. The jeans I normally wear are size 14 and they fit fine (both pairs are from Jeans West) but the black ones are tighter in the waist, causing a nasty muffin top-age to happen.
I think fitting into these jeans is a good goal because it involves not just weight loss but belly loss!
I tried on the size 11 jeans just out of interest. I can’t believe I was ever small enough to wear them (I think it was for a brief few weeks at my smallest weight). Interestingly, they are really tight in the thighs. I never put weight on my thighs, ever. Even at my biggest, over 100 kgs weight, my thighs were around 50 cms. I reckon apart from some jiggly inner thigh bits I have no fat cells in my legs (they all live in my belly). That means it’s all muscle.
Girlie stuff: I’ve been thinking of going on the pill while I’m on hols. My period is due slap-bang in the middle of my time away. I hate getting my period, and last time I travelled, I got the period from hell. If I can take the pill and skip a period then it’s a good thing – except I’m worried I’ll put on weight. I haven’t taken the pill for years (I rely on my obnoxious personality for birth control) so I don’t know if you still get the nasty side effects. Does this still happen or has contraceptive technology improved since I last took it (that being when I got preggers with Andrew — figuring it’s no use closing the stable door…)
Coming soon… interactive holiday packing, cos I can’t think for myself!
