When Mr WLB offered to buy me some tantric scales last night, I wasn’t quite sure what to think!
When he went on to explain what he meant – I was having weird visions of Sting and Trudi Styler with their arms and legs wrapped together doing some strange breathing shit and having an orgasm 76 hours later – I just laughed! :-)
He meant ‘Tanita Scales’ – the weighing scales that can attempt to measure your body fat. I say ‘attempt’ as they too are pretty inaccurate at times – you have to wear the same clothes (or none!), be well-hydrated for the measurement sensors to work, weigh at the same time of day on the same day of the week at the same time of the month, blah blah blah…
Tantric fecking scales – maybe he’ll ask for Tanita sex soon and then I’ll really have a job working out what he’s after!
He is struggling to think of ideas for Christmas for me. Whilst I have completed my Christmas shopping he hasn’t started it yet. I buy for the whole family, his included…he only has to buy for me.
To be honest though, the only thing I really want is to crack my weight loss. He can’t really help me with that.
He has suggested all sorts of thing – the scales being one of them! I am actually happy with my lot in life though. A lottery win would be helpful of course, but I am not really that much of a ‘things’ person. I have nice handbags but don’t use them. I have a couple of TAG watches but don’t really wear them that often. I am not a make-up kind of girl. I have the clothes I want. I just want to crack the weight loss.
I enjoy spending time with friends and family at Christmas – so that is always my focus. And I was chatting with my friend yesterday about becoming more ‘girl’ and going for spa treatments and the like. She said that I do ‘girl’ pretty well though…and that her friends just go for coffee like we do, so I feel less worried now that I am not ‘girl’ enough! Although I have – with the help of some Facebook buddies – lined up a nice fat-friendly spa to go to, so that will be fun. I’m reckon it’s good to take some time out for rest and relaxation and that’s how I am hoping to stay on track…by treating myself in a positive way.
On that note, I have a ‘fat-friendly’ rant coming soon. I was contacted by a PR company for the strangest reason, although it might seem weird that I think it strange and I think it will split opinion too! So I will try and write about that tomorrow.
I am off to relax for the evening now. I have had a lovely week – busy, but lovely – and a great morning at the horses, and then my wonderful Mum came over for lunch and we chilled out for a bit. And Mr WLB is behind me in the lounge on his Wattbike doing some kind of cycling test…it’s getting noisy and I might unplug it soon…he should be thinking of present ideas for me, surely?!
My food today has been lovely – a nice breakfast of smoked bacon with sliced mushrooms, baby plum tomatoes, wilted spinach, and scrambled eggs. Lunch was really tasty – and I made it for my Mum too – a nice mixed tomato and olive salad with feta, stuffed mushrooms, steak, and mixed leaves. Dinner was a butternut squash and pumpkin soup. I followed that up with a bit of fruit this evening:
Thank you for reading, and have a fabulous week!
