Diets are no funsies

I lost a good bit of weight last spring. Motivated by my fun salsa lessons, I began to actually take care of myself. And eat properly like.

Take-aways were a big no no, especially Chinese and chips. It was a painful separation but my hips and thighs thanked me for it. The compliments I received were quite nice, although, on my more negative days, made me feel like I was a monster beforehand. ‘A fine girl’. Charming.

So when the end of my salsa lessons arrived in July, I was probably nearly two stone lighter than I had been the year before. I was excira and delira and celebrated by piling it all back on as promptly as I could manage. The fact that I swapped the salsa lessons for learning to drive only compounded matters. It meant I finally had an excuse for not walking; I needed the practice of course! Walking’s for losers anyways. Look at all those miserable people at the bus stops, eyeing their watches and mobile phones, wishing the bloody rain would stop because it’s so windy the fecking umbrella won’t stay up.

I digress.

Apparently, if you don’t have any saliva in your mouth, you can’t taste food. Drying your tongue with a paper towel might be a good suggestion but not one for doing in public, I would reckon.

Hmmmmm. Maybe if food was as cute as this, I could resist…..

ETA – This was my 200th post and I didn’t know it. Jaysus, I wish I’d made it a bit more fun now. Bugger.

That is spectacularly cute.

I am going to give salsa a go in January – I too find walking very boring and I need to get healthy.

Good on you for losing the weight – the challenge is to keep it off.

OOh congrats on 20,000,000 posts! Well done you!

And you’ve always looked great to me. True story. Look, it’s on the internet. It must be true!

The only way I’ve been able to spur myself to do more fitness work is to buy a Nike+ thing for my iPod. Running down by the Liffey is quite nice though. Congrats on the 200th.

@Lottie – it is so much fun, you’ll love it! I had the best laugh I actually learned a few steps too which was a nice bonus! It was the first time I’d felt motivated and it didn’t feel like exercise at all. I’m definitely taking it up again next year.

@Darragh – fanks darl! *blushes suitably*

@Anthony – cheers m’dear 🙂 200 posts of nonsense, yay! Music is a great motivator isn’t it? I’m sure I’m wrecking my eardrums though, I can’t win hehe.
