I’m the luckiest girl in the world. My boyfriend surprised me with a trip to Miami next weekend for my birthday. At first, I jumped for joy because I’ve been dying to get out of this frigid weather but then a dark cloud of fear loomed over me…I gotta get into shape! I thought I had a good 2 more months until I had to deal with this problem before the summer. I thought I had 2 more months of ramen-eating left to do.
I was trying to eat healthy right after New Years but I failed miserably. The only way I get through the months between January and March is eating comfort foods. I get really Asian too. All I want to eat is hot Asian noodle soups and spicy tofu stews and then I wonder why my face is so bloated. So after all the birthday shenanigans and using my birthday as an excuse to eat an entire bag of corn nuts, goldfish, margaritas, chips and guacamole, tacos, brownies, cupcakes, and tres leches cake, I decided that today I would mend my fat kid ways.
I have been trying to eat wholesome organic foods and drinking fresh juices. I’m not doing anything too extreme, I’m just trying to rid my body of all the toxins. I also don’t do all of this to lose weight but I want to deflate my bulging pouchy tummy. I feel like I’m dying and granted it’s been less than 24 hours, my diet before consisted of cheese and tortilla chips.
I know what you’re all thinking and you judgey people judging away. But I really don’t give a F* what you think. I have an immense love and passion for food but there has to be a balance. I like to feel good about the way I look and feel. So, I have exactly one week to look my best. AH! Now, I have to figure out what to do with my pale skin without going to a tanning salon.
