Off Topic Rant, On Topic Everything Else.

31 May

So, this is just something I want people’s opinion on.

There’s a girl on my facebook who is trying to lose weight and posting every meal she makes including their calorie count. I, if you haven’t realized from pictures, am not in any way, shape, or form tiny. My body’s function is to play rugby, and for my position I need to be able to hit. Hard. I admire her for losing weight, I do. It’s just she’s doing it in such an unhealthy way. I completely believe in Bodyism, it’s not even about the weight, I can now wake up and go for a day with only one cup of coffee. It’s groundbreaking. And cheat meals?! SO necessary. If you cut the fat out of your life, you’re going to feel like crap. Also, don’t put it on facebook. It infuriates onlookers who don’t know you well enough to say anything.

Now, back to topics. My weekend is looking entirely underwhelming. I’m in super penny pinch mode and am very sad about it.  I wanted to head to the beach but the high is only 16, so I’m thinking that’s way to cold. So, what to do?

No clue. My friends boyfriend is away, so we might FINALLY have a girls night. Thank god, we need it. Also, I have a pub night lined up for next week,  so what do I wear to that?

This just in, I’m going to try to talk my Mum into letting me host an epic monopoly tourney.

House party attires at my place vary. (oh dear god am I showing you these pictures?!) We have the:

Halloween pre drinks. Word of advice, don’t start your All Hallows’ Eve drinking at noon. Also, don’t work at 8:30 the day after Halloween. I am legend at my old job for my attendance that day. Legend. Also, notice Monty, always chic, in the corner.

This one was in the summer. I was wearing a dress that I bought in a vintage shop and haphazardly shortened. I kind of want to turn it into something like this, but not strapless:

Burda Style Halter Dress Pattern, Burdastyle.com, $5.40

The dress has huge seventies arms, but I haven’t worn it since then, so it’s time to do something.

Or there’s the super casual, just having a couple of drinks house party. My parents don’t go away anymore. It’s sad.

So, let’s hope for a house party. Maybe I’ll dress up a bit for this one…
