Dita Von Teese: My corset role model
Prompt: New weight/measurements! How do you feel? Are you going to continue to get healthier? What are you plans for next month?
Well, my weight is right back where it was some 30 days ago, thanks to the holidays. I did not gorge or eat a bunch of foods I should not have been eating (except for Christmas breakfast). Because everyone was home for two weeks, I ate more frequently and larger meals than I would have if home alone.
While I’m disappointed, I’m not crushed. I made the choice to begin this, prior to the holiday season, knowing it could backfire. Yes, I gained back a couple of pounds (and that really is all we’re talking about here) but I also got back into the habit of exercising every day. I missed only two days the entire time, and one of them was Christmas day, so there is that.
I will continue to do my thing, in the way I’m doing it. It’s proven to work, when I stick with it. Additionally, I’m physically well enough to resume waist training. I have my new trainer in hand and have begun seasoning it.
My final goal is 20″, which for me will be a 7″ reduction. I know this is attainable. When I had to stop for medical reasons, unrelated to training, I was already 22″. Now, I’m … well … let’s just say I’m not at 22″ anymore. I have to gain back that ground and gain those two additional inches. I know that once I’m at 22″, it’s going to take a very long time to get the last two. I’m okay with that, as long as I do get them eventually.
Training makes my horny. I had forgotten. I have felt bad for so long I nearly forgot I had lady bits. I trained today and it was as if my body said “Oh! That’s right! There they are! I remember those. Thanks for reminding me. Now that they’re awake let’s do something. What? What do you mean we can’t? Well … fine then. You do what you want but they’re here and I’m gonna make sure you don’t forget that for a very long time.”
Yup. Sounds about right. Oddly, I don’t mind. I’m just glad I feel well again.
If my predictions are correct, I’ll be back on board with all of my training tomorrow. As difficult as it can be some days, it surprises me how much I’ve missed it.
I’m trying to prepare myself for the fact that schools may be closed tomorrow due to the extreme temperatures. If that ends up being the case, I may lock myself in my room to train. Fingers crossed that I’ll have the house to myself and can relax they way I will need to after the extended break. I know I won’t be able to pick up where I left off. As long as I’m doing something I’ll find a way to be ok with it.
I spent the day doing a whole lot of nothing. I spent the evening getting reacquainted with DH.
You and Your drive have been on my mind. Given the time stamp of Your voice mail it looks like the drive was significantly less than smooth. I hope I’m wrong. I hope You found entertaining diversions that delayed Your arrival.
While You were driving I spent the day in bed. I did not unpack, though that’s not unusual. I pulled out my toys to train this afternoon, thought briefly about retrieving my camera, and went back to bed instead.
