I'm going on holiday! Whoooop!
Friday, June 21, 2013
I've been working SO hard recently. It's been interesting, and I have been trying hard not to get stressed about how much I've had to do…but I need a break. I haven’t been on holiday in 19 months now, so it's time. I was randomly lying in bed last night thinking about my mum and family in Ghana, and woke up this morning and decided to be impulsive and just book a flight! Yayyyy!
So I'm off….5 weeks today, for 2 and a half weeks…yipppeeee! I HAVE to look my absolute best by the time I go! Ghana people are very…how can I put this nicely…honest!? I mean, the first thing my aunt's comment on when I get there is my weight: whether I've 'gotten fatter' or 'gotten thinner' than the last time they saw me! People in the street will even shout out 'fat girl/boy' in the street to complete strangers and think nothing of it! (I'm not saying everyone is like this, but I've seen it happen). I guess it's just a completely different mentality; they feel like they're being honest so to them it's not an insult or anything, just a statement of fact.
Anyway, last time I was in Ghana I was 210lbs…so I am DEFINITELY slimmer than the last time they saw me. However, I'd still like to get down a bit more so I can finally wear a bikini or swimming costume on the beach and feel normal. I'm more comfortable with my figure right now than I've ever been, so I think I'll feel good when I'm there.
So I have 5 weeks today, my flight is on the 26th July and I'm going to be working by behind off between now and then to feel 100% ready to see my family who I haven’t seen in a year and a half. 35 days. That's it. Ah I'm TOO excited. How's that for motivation to keep going eh!
here I come!
