Friday letters time already!

Both the weekend and this week seemed to go by incredibly fast – I can’t believe it’s Friday again already!
After an incredibly busy weekend last week, this time I have no plans whatsoever. The flat is a tip though, so it seems like a cleaning sesssion should be in order. If I can be bothered, that is. 😉

Here come this week’s Friday letters.

Dear Eddie Izzard. Two weeks today, I shall be at your show in Berlin! This thought makes me so excited that I may have actually just squeed aloud. I actually, genuinely cannot wait!

Dear Berlin. Do you think maybe you could start to show signs of spring by the time we arrive? I’ve seen photos of the snow that’s currently lying and I really don’t feel like walking around in it! There’s been enough snow now, I think… after all, it is officially spring!

Dear body. First it was the extra huge bum that crept up on me, now I seem to have developed a belly as well. I hadn’t thought much of the bit of extra padding I’d noticed until Sunday when I tried on a dress. A year ago, it looked good on me. Five days ago, it clung in all the wrong places and made me look about six months pregnant (I’m not, before anyone asks). Where has this fat explosion come from?!

Dear self. You’ve managed to do a circuit of your exercise DVD twice this week. It’s a start, but nowhere near good enough. This belly seriously needs getting rid of!

Dear Easter. You are just around the corner, and while I’m looking forward to the four-day weekend you bring, I knid of wish you weren’t this close. Not sure I’ll be able to resist the huge basket of treats that’s now appeared on the table at work. Normally, I would be excited to dig into all the chocolatey goodness, but this year I’m sensing it’s a bad idea (see fat explosion letter above…)

  1. I think the good weather and the dieting are linked; nobody wants to eat healthily when it’s cold out, you need an extra layer of insulation! But when the weather clears up, it’s much easier to eat well and get out and do some exercise. That’s my excuse anyway, and I’m sticking to it!

    1. It’s an excellent excuse 😉

      I’m definitely more willing to walk to the train station instead of taking the tram when it’s warm. Not too warm though… once it gets above about 26 degrees all I want to do is hide indoors away from the nasty hot sun!

  2. I’ve had a disastrous dieting week – I ran once on Monday and ate all the food that was set infront of me (or that may have ended up in front of me when I walked to find it), but I call it surviving the last week of term. I went back out for a run yesterday and I’m trying again. Again. And I’m still SO jealous about Eddie Izzard. In fact, I ban you from blogging abut how good it was afterwards!

  3. haha i’m with you on the explosion. you know it didn’t ACTUALLY happen overnight, but somehow you realize it all at one time? it just takes one bad experience trying clothes on. apparently approaching 30 makes this all a lot harder, ugh. hopefully we can both find the motivation to keep going!

    1. Yes, turning 30 does make things harder! I hope we both find some motivation, too. It will definitely be easier if the snow ever goes away – somehow, fattening foods are easier to resist when it’s not freezing outside!
