Enough is enough | Fit Bitch

It finally happened. I got sick of being this person:

Suddenly, over the weekend, the final straw landed on the camel’s back and I realised I was actually gatvol. Gatvol of fighting with my wardrobe, gatvol of feeling blerghy, heavy, ugly and sluggish. And gatvol of dreading summer.

Like all my epiphanies, it was Pinterest inspired and this was the quote that pushed me over the edge:

Great bums think alike | Fit Bitch

Ah, Nicki Minaj.

Her bum really is a glorious globe, and she shows it off wonderfully in her latest, highly sexualised, music video. As a girl packing a bit of ass myself (I do not have the typical white girl problem of my backside being too flat) I must confess I found this video rather empowering.

WHAT MAGNIFICENT WIGGLES.

Tim Noakes ain’t no joke | Fit Bitch

Today , I turned 28, and realised with a sad sigh that I can cast off phrases like ‘When I was younger’ in a non-facetious manner and mention ‘ten years ago’ quite casually like a real grown-up.

I’m also finding it harder to lose weight.

This is partly because I haven’t really tried this year yet. And partly because I haven’t really exercised. And partly because my aging metabolism is giving me the huge middle finger… All of which is why I signed up with the well.i.am challenge which has thus far lead to increased amounts of guilt but no real action on my part (which I’m sure was not the organisers intended when they invited me to participate.)

Life lessons

… And some funny stuff.

I have a long and eloquent post on Tim Noakes planned for my well.i.am fitness challenge (possible titles include ‘Tim Noakes can can go f* himself’) but alas I am moving this week, and was in Cape Town last week, and have subsequently eaten enough calories to feed a village for a month. Myself. 

Sigh.

Pilansberg Photodiary

Recently I went on a pretty spectacular trip to the Pilansberg with my family from the USA. Instead of trying to paint a word picture, I thought I’d put up actual photographs I took. I love wildlife photography!

giraffe licking tongue

Giraffes have some of the longest tongues in the animal kingdom – here is one trying to lick it’s nostril!

The most giraffes I’ve ever seen together, having a little pow wow.

Giraffes often chew bones for the calcium – this is not a hunter!

Seriously.

Aside from the wedding.

And the trip to Cape Town.

Why didn’t the well.i.am challenge start in August??

My weekend philosophy

And a rhetorical question – are sloths animal potatoes? *gazes into wine glass with much ponder*

If food told you the truth | Fit Bitch

WELL.

Today is the first day of the well.i.am challenge, and it was with much sadness that I looked in the mirror on my way out the house and acknowledged that I really need this. This was just after I put my mascara on and then, while it was still wet, sneezed. With black tracks on my carefully prepared face I felt slightly despondent but am glad that I’m on the right track with the rest of my life.
