Mirror, mirror on the wall...

You know how that last post had that nice little plate with an annoyingly healthy amount of veggies and barely there serving of anything else? That’s cause I was so trying to be on a diet. And because it was a dinner the day before my birthday. The day before I so thunderously fell of the wagon, I don’t even want to think about. The day before the cake/mayo/ice-cream binge that has already lasted half a week and which I’m so ashamed off I just have to have another ice-cream to feel better…

Yah… I’m sooo really serious about loosing those 30 pounds. Sure…

But seriously…

I can’t stand looking in the mirror right now. I’m way too desperate to fit into my old clothes. Those nice fashionable pants I got a couple of summers ago. Instead of these stretchy track pants that make me look like I’m just trying too hard… Which I’m totally aware of. But I’m not gonna go shopping for anything to fit this current behind. I don’t care what those “What not to wear” people say. This rear end will not look good in anything. And there is no point in trying to camouflage it.

I’m just gonna stock up on carrots. And lots of wishful thinking. And those ancient photos of myself at 16 when I could fit into the skinny jeans my toe will probably not fit into now.

Ahh… those good old days…

Now excuse me while I go feeling all so crappy about myself and trying to believe that carrots and ice-cream are the same thing.

And please, no more birthdays…

Unless I’m turning 16 again.

I wear the stretchy track pants, too. I've recently switched from shorts to capris to cover the hideousness of my thighs that actually appear to be packed with cottage cheese. Julia is three now, so I can't really blame it on her. Honestly? It's that damn Little Debbie and her delicious treats. Damn you Little Debbie!

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! As long as we can find a balance in what makes us happy. Life is too short to worry about 30 pounds, there are bigger fish to fry.

Best wishes.

Oh, you poor thing! Stop feeling so sorry for yourself - you're 30 pounds heavier cuz you had a beautiful, healthy baby! I never had that excuse! :) But seriously, don't stress yourself out about this. Totally not worth it. Think about the positives and focus on eating fresh, healthy summer produce.

Happy belated Birthday Lisa.Looks like you enjoyed it too!:))
You just had a baby woman!! Relax for a while.I understand that sometimes we will never fit into those old clothes,but new wardrobe sounds great too!:D
Well..there are no miracle diet but eating small meals every 3-4 hrs thru' seems to work(not that it makes me skinny but..!;p).It maintains the sugar level and keeps me from snacking too.Other than that,a good workout for 1/2 an hr a day will work wonders.Good luck.

I'm a 29 year old mom of two! A toddler (kiddo one) and a new baby (kiddo junior). I am also the most horrible (as in I barely ever do it) cook that I have met in my life. This blog is a diary of my attempts to feed my hungry growing family

PS: My name is not actually Vasilisa... But I find that honest reporting comes easier when there is a shred of anonymity. (Apparently, posting pics of my sons doesn't count...)

PPS: For those of you wondering where on the planet I am: I'm cosily tacked away in the Torontonian suburbia of the Great White North (Canada).

The Beginnings

What is all this?


To music, naturally.


All kinds of books. Haven't figured out how to post links to them yet.
