*shakes her grass skirt*
Woohoo! I was Hula Girl of the day today, and it was a great way to cheer up the morning. FanTASTIC, let me tell you.
I've noticed something amazing: it's actually easier, being on a diet, when I'm in work. Until, of course, lunchtime comes around!
There's not much choice in town, as to what to eat, unless you want to spend 45 minutes of a 60 minute lunchbreak walking to and from Subway down near the mall. And I hate bolting my lunch like that.
So I stick closer to work, and I eat wraps with chicken - I like chicken - and tikka sauce, or cajun sauce with cheese and onions and sweetcorn and.
It's probably not the healthiest of options, you know? I mean, of course I know. It tastes too damned good to be healthy! But at least I'm getting the 10 minute walk - or 25 minute walk if it involves going to the bank, waiting in the queue, walking to the sandwich shop, and walking back to work again - to and back from the shop.
Haha, I just re-read that and thought, "Man. It really does only take me 10 minutes to get there, get my sandwich MADE, and get back to work."
But I also just realised that it also winds me, sometimes, pretty badly. Like I'll be seriously out of breath.
That's to be expected, right? When somebody weighs almost 400lbs, and I'm pretty much carrying around more than 200lbs strapped to my whole body, of COURSE I'm going to get out of breath.
So I'm cool with that. The safer but faster I lose the weight, the further I'll be able to walk in a shorter amount of time. Give me three months and I'll be RUNNING down to Subway.
And then crawling back, dragging my fat arse, gasping for breath, and trying to eat my food while gulping the air.
... sort of.
... okay, I'm not kidding. It'll take a lot more than 3 months until I run ANYWHERE. But it's certainly something for me to think about. Taking a longer walk at lunchtime may mean, you know, WALKING FOR LONGER, but it'll also mean a healthier lunch alternative - albeit more expensive - and more time spent away from the office.
All of which are fine by me.
