A friend (Michelle) is a motivated fitness and nutrition expert wrote me a diet plan. I need to print it out and start following it. The issue is that the days are busy and the nights are exhausting so something as simple as printing and shopping to get started keeps falling int the too hard basket. I’ll print it out while I am in at the office today… I mean it this time!
MEANWHILE. The Love of my life Phteven has informed me that we are also starting something called the 5:2 diet.
Here’s the link to the doco that got Grumpy all fired up to try this new diet for anyone who might be interested:
The basic premise has something to do with fasting twice a week to halve the amount of some nasty hormone that is released if you eat heaps of protein or something. In the coles notes version Grumpy imparted to me yesterday, he explained there’s a hormone that makes you fat, gives you cancer, causes diabetes.
According to the documentary I have not yet watched, there are little people who don’t make a lot of this bad hormone, and they live for aaaagggggeessss apparently. Steve was explaining this all to me in the car and the kids overheard and chimed in with: “Oh, Hobbits live for AGES! Everyone knows that.” Cute kids. They make me laugh, so I shall keep them a bit longer I suppose.
Okay. Whatever. I am in this marriage for better or worse so if he insists we do this thing I will give it a good honest varsity try.
For 5 days of the week I can eat WHATEVER I like. However, I will be trying to stick to Michelle’s diet on these days.
On the fasting days, I am allowed no more than 500 calories. Do you know how much food 500 calories is. FUCK ALL. That is the actual amount of food that you are able to eat before reaching 500 calories.
In REAL terms, fuck all food would be: Four slices of bacon, or five bananas. One cream cheese bagel or a frappe…
So I am currently tossing up if I should take a “before” picture today and then document the journey back to MILFdom. Getting to be tight like a tiger is going to take some doing as I’ve successfully perfected the chubby mom-jean genie and for real frumpy thing lately. And because I have no intention of staying this fat, I have not bought appropriate summer clothes for my current curvaceous self.
Sigh. Okay, so here’s the “Before” shot from today. I guess I have to wear the same outfit for the after shot and blow everyone away with my svelte self.
So that is me at 70kg. I have no idea what it is in pounds, but for someone who is hobbit height such as myself, it is rather a lot.
So, bring on the starvation twice a week, and then hopefully some results as well.
Have a great day everyone.

I’m starting it to, as soon as I’m back in Thailand and life settles down. I’m thinking tins of tuna in spring water and tzatziki on my fast days.
