Vacuum packed and pissed off.

That’s how I feel. Inside my skinny (so-tight-I-can’t-bend) jeans.

Months of Winter and tasty treats have taken their toll on my physique. It is currently a sad squidgy place. My favourite pair of jeans are taking strain, I’m worried if I keep wearing them they are going to tear since the knees came pre-ripped. I’m not loving my baggy jeans (aka “fat pants”).ย My style cannot suffer for such a pathetic reason.


There’s only one thing for it.

Well two.

Diet and exercise.

Exercise I can do (when and if my child actually chooses to nap some time in the day. Maybe. Nothing’s definite with her. So that’s probably a “no”). Diet, I’m not the best at. Think of a dog. Put a piece of ham on the dog’s nose and tell them not to eat it. Weย all know the outcome of that. That’s my level of willpower. It’s almost a foreign thought it’s so ridiculous. I’m a food lover and I enjoy cooking. Dieting gets in the way of this, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

This wasn’t a problem pre-baby because I used to live at the gym with all that amazing time on my hands. Now I barely have time to brush my hair (and sometimes even forget. Horrific).ย Anyway, I never used to diet, I just used to gym myself to death. It worked perfectly. Oh how I wish I could take that approach now.

So, for the sake of skinny jeans and all the power they hold, I will do this.




Oh please let me have some willpower for once.




Illustration by me.

    I can so relate to this!! The days of having time to burn (literally) are sorely missed this dieting and limiting have to play a part, yeah that’s not working too well LOL! I go to bed determined but wake up hungry, hmmmm….

  2. Well, it looks like you have some choices here… I feel your pain though. As a performer, I can not just change my costume, or create a new one so easily.

    You have to find the balance between eating what you want and wearing what you want. then when you find a balance… life is good.

    Will power plays a huge part in it all too. Do I want a piece of cake? Yes, yes I do, but I can’t have one because I have a bigger goal than immediate self satisfaction (I had a rough weekend of ‘choices’ myself). Like everything else in our lives, we have to choose our battles.
