So I know I have spoken often of the bikini body I am trying to get. I thought I would write an entry and post a couple of photos. I know, I’m addicted to visual progress!! It’s what works for me. When I look back at old photos, my God. To be honest, I never thought of myself as that big. But when I see the visual evidence it freaks me the hell out.
So here goes, this is the body now; it needs to be tightened and toned within an inch of it’s life so it looks good in four months when I head to southeast Asia and wear a bikini everyday.
The body in Aug 09, needs toning & tightening!
But I have to say I am effing proud of myself, when we view picture number two, taken in August 2008, it makes me CRINGE!:
In Aug 08; most unflattering photo ever! But it gives you the real picture...
So here we go… four months! Watch this space for an updated photo!
p.s. I really have to do it now, or you’re all going to know me as the girl with the belly. Not cool.
But not too far away! Promise!
I went and purchased myself a new domain. I have enjoyed the ease of having my blog hosted here. But if you know me, you know I’m fickle and can’t stay in one spot for too long. So she’s off again.
I’m after some tips for hosting, CHEAP hosting. Please leave me a comment of companies/websites you can recommend for CHEAP (remember this chick is no high roller, not with this damn student lifestyle killing my huge income I deserve to be earning ) hosting.
So you remember when I announced to the world that I was officially single and not looking? Yeah it appears a couple of people missed that announcement. Maybe I should turn the microphone up next time?
Yesterday out of the blue I received a text from one of the guys I “met” on a dating website. He was always a nice guy, I think we stopped texting because there were so many at once and maybe he got lost in the crowd? Yes I feel bad. We never actually got around to meeting, but had quite a lot of messaging and texting. So we’re back to texting, have added each other on facebook and taking it really slow. I am in no rush!
I also receieved another out of the blue text from the Horndog man. The one who wanted me in his bed after we’d met for a coffee for an hour. What did his oh-so-appealing text say this time you may be wondering….?
What ya up to? I’m feeling horny.
Yes. Class at it’s best. Needless to say I did not reply.
I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed this weekend just been. It was a weekend of girlfriends; lunches, shopping, Saturday afternoon drinks, mini-roadie up north, sleepovers, expensive (free) red wine, gossip, chick-flicks, and general man-free moments. It was wonderful. There was no texting men, no thinking “oh why hasn’t he replied?“. Heaven I tell ya! So I have now learnt this is the way to be. Hence my stance I’m taking with the man texting me now. Completely slow and chilled.
Yesterday mum arrived home with a juicer. It is my new best friend. It is the kick-start I needed for my weight loss before my New Year’s excursion to beach and bikini-land (read: Thailand).
So the toning and tightening of the body has begun as of today. I started this morning off with a carrot, grapefruit, lemon and kiwifruit juice. Delicious! So juice is now on the menu whenever I am home! Lunches will consist of tuna salad, and for dinner chicken and salad. YUS! I have netball every Monday but I need to up my exercise and will be adding in more walks, runs and sit ups each day.
My sister (who is already tiny) showed me the difference 20 sit ups a night before bed can make. Lets just say I’m jealous. I am going to copy her and do the same.
Tonight when I get home I am going to measure my waist and thighs and then re-measure every few weeks. Because now I’m not so focused on how much I weigh, more on how I look.
So stay tuned for some before and after photos. I have just FOUR months to get an amazing bikini body for all the thousands of photos we’re bound to be having.
I have been tempted in recent days to buy my own domain again, but my struggle has always been what to use as a domain name. But an idea has come to mind recently and I’m thinking that it could be a hit. Stay tuned.
Yesterday I did something quite drastic, well quite drastic for me. Loser I know… I deleted my twitter account. Shock. Horror.
It was consuming me. I felt the need to update people on my life all the time! Did they care? No! Haha. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely loved it most of the time. I will be sad to leave a few amazing people who really grew on me! But really, the internet is not that huge anymore. I will keep in contact with most that I “be-friended” through email, facebook and of course this blog.
I just felt it was time, leave on a high right?
I have seven weeks of my university life left. I felt it was time I put 110% into that, academically and socially.
After I had done it, I told my best friend, she instantly said: “What Bron?! You didn’t even consult me on this!” Haha. She’s right, normally I would consult her on it… but obviously my inner-self just knew.
I’m totally flattered that I’ve already had comments in person, emails, texts and blog comments saying I will be missed! Apparently I had grown myself a “mini-celeb” status. I’m not dead guys, I’m still here, just the same as before, just zero-tweets. Who knew people you didn’t know in person could actually affect you?!
So to my twitter-buds still reading; don’t be a stranger – say hi x
