OK, I need to lose weight. I need to lose weight because:
a) Cosmo Brides told me to, and Cosmo Brides, it is the Bible
b) I got on the scales this morning after a lengthy absence, and discovered an extra HALF A STONE had materialised somewhere on my body. I’m guessing my belly. That would explain why my jeans almost garrotte me when I put them on now. (And yay to me for gratuitous use of the word "garrotte". Not a writer for nothing, hell no…)
Anyway, yeah, so I took up ballet. Don’t look at me like that, adults can so do ballet. I mean, clearly I’m never going to be a prima ballerina (Note: I SO wish I could be a prima ballerina. Why did my parents allow me to drop out of ballet classes when I was six? Why did they?) as I’m so freaking old, but it’s good exercise, and good fun. Also: have you seen those little ballet cardis and skirts? SO cute.
So, ballet is this month’s fad, but also cycling and walking because hey, I need all the help I can get here, people. I also signed up for Amazon’s DVD rental program. You basically pay £5.99 or something per month, and for that they send you three DVDs every month. I signed up and will get them to send exercise DVDs. Given that I have the attention span of a goldfish but a magpie’s love for new, shiny things, I figured that was my best bet at staying motivated. Well, that and whole "fat-bride" thing.
Of course, with all of that said, we’re now off to Terry’s mum’s to eat our own weight in mousaka. I hope the next exercise DVD comes soon…
