You know that feeling you get when you want to post about something, but you're not sure how to say it? Then you type it out, and it just doesn't sound the way you want, so you delete it and wish you had saved it? Well if you don't, I guess I'm just strange that way. ANYWAY, I have encountered a little problem over this summer. Actually it is a big problem. I have...let's see how I can say this nicely... I have added some junk to the trunk. Literally... in the boo-tay! I am not trying to say there is anything wrong with a little extra padding to exhance a women's beauty, but when your clothes don't stinkin' fit and your normal obsession with shopping no longer exists, you may have a slight issue to consider. I know, I can hear it all ready, "Susie, you have a lot on your plate right now(no pun intended) what with being apart from hubby, changes, home schooling, etc..etc...", but I don't want any excuses, and I want some serious change on this body. For one, I can't afford a whole new wardrobe, and two I have just been given a free tropical vacation from my sis and brother-in-law. If thinking of myself in a bathing suit come January 26th won't do it, I'm not sure what will. My brother-in-law gets a free trip a couple of times a year from his builder supply company he uses(he is a home builder),and this year he asked me and Skip to join them on a trip to Panama. I have a little less than four months to do whatever it is I'm going to do to get in shape.
Okay I think I mentioned here about doing a raw foods diet with my son when he was very ill as a baby. I don't think that I mentioned that I lost quite a bit of weight while joining him with this healthy lifestyle. For some reason, since that time in my life I have never lost more than 5 lbs. at a time. Since basically over the last year, I have eaten salads like maybe twice (exaggerating a bit), I feel this could be a really wise endeavor. I want to eat better, my kids need to eat better, and I want to fit into a bathing suit for goodness sakes. Vain or not, I have to get my inspiration somewhere. Tonight I found inspiration looking at some before/after shots at this raw foods site. Pretty amazing stuff out there. I know I can't go 100 percent, but I can go about 70 to 80 percent like I did in the past. Yes, people will think I'm a freak, and my realitives will all talk about me behind my back(just like last time 10 years ago), but I have to do something people. This means that Tiffany cannot call me for coffee, and Skip cannot call me and say what do you want for dinner tonight from here, and it means that Thanksgiving, Christmas, and my b-day will just plain s*ck(I really hate that word). Maybe if I lose quite a bit, I can cheat those days.
I just have to leave you with something I found on Youtube to wrap up the whole raw food's thing. I found it quite funny, and I happen to love the Sound of Music. I wish I knew how to make it just show up, but I don't. Go here.
