Hayden Thinspo

A friend had this sitting in her bathroom
so I read Hayden Panettiere's article on health&fitness.
She mostly talked about
the difference between living in LA vs. Nashville.
How her diet&exercise was so hardcore
when she lived in LA
and now that Nashville is so low-key.
She enjoys the foods she craves in moderation
and does workouts she enjoys like hiking
instead of forced&difficult training.
If you can't tell from my past few weeks of exercise
I took the article to heart.
Instead of dreading an hour on the elliptical
I run up&down 4 flights of stairs every hours at work
or simply walk on the treadmill at the gym
since the boyfriend drives there every day anyway.
And I enjoy it so much more.
Sure, there are days that I feel more intense...
today, I planned to walk
and - instead - I found myself running
full-speed at an incredible incline.
But mostly, I just do what I'm feeling
and watch my food intake a little better.
I've stayed at 126.5lbs two mornings in a row
so I think it's working for now.

Not for Everyone

126.5lbs this morning.
Hell yes.
I'm getting there.
I'm going down.
I'm working hard.
I will not be stopped.

I understand where she was coming from
exclaiming so passionately that:
"Zero is not a Size"
in an effort to empower our nation's youth.
For those who are "diseased" with an eating disorder
I think her cause was noble&admirable.
But for those - like myself - who choose
to develop&love an eating disorder the
"Eat Less"
shirt is much more beautiful.
I sincerely feel for those
who can't control their thoughts&hatred of themselves
and their body,
but I accept&embrace mine
and simply long for the day that:
ZERO will be my size.

A-Team

For some odd reason
this song
has been my workout warm-up song.
It's slow
and has no beat to pump me up
but it reminds me of my former self...
the girl who was in the A-Team
- the Thin&Partying Team -
and all the things I did back then
to stay tiny.
My lifestyle will probably never fit into
that mold again...
hence why I like the song.
It's a mindset things
and it gets me thinking
about how hard to I need to work
to at least look like an A-Teamer.

Size Desire

One Tree Hill always tried to insert life lessons.
This one was super silly to me.
"Zero Is Not a Size?"
Well... that's not true.
There's even a size called 00
(a place I'd like to be soon)
and it's a beautiful size to be.
Not that Millie was super fat&disgusting
though she did look a lot better
when she took up a coke habit
and dropped some pounds.
And I find it funny how the same stories
find their way into every TV series.
I feel like any show with a designer
has a "we're short a model" moment
and has to put a "normal girl" on stage
to prove that anyone can be a model.
Not true.
That's that.
Nice try, TVLand, but models are
thin&gorgeous
and they are better for it.

Rock Bottom

I used to be a wreck.
In highschool&college
I was an absolute shit show.
I drank too much & smoked too much...
ate too little & threw up all the time.
I wore whatever the fuck I wanted
and didn't give a shit
about anything but partying & floating along.
The funniest thing about those days
is that I honestly didn't care about being thin.
I was thin...
but I'd get bloated
get bags under my eyes
get knots in my hair & bruises on my body.
I was thoughtlessly tiny and an absolute mess.
And I loved every single second of my life.

Feather Tattoo

I've decided that
when I finally get below 125lbs again
[I said 120lbs, but the BF likes a "managed 125" more]
I'm rewarding myself
with a feather tattoo.
I'm thinking along the bottom of my butt
you know
along that line before the leg starts
(and hopefully I won't have a real line/bulge there)
about 5inches long & 2inches wide.
The boyfriend's pumped.
He wants to add to his tattoo collection
once his upper arms are built to perfection.
This morning:
I was 129.
Still haven't lost my Miami Weekend Weight.
Damnit.

L!fe Happens

I decided to watch L!fe Happens today
while I was working from home.
It was full of actors&actresses I love
so I figured it to be a great choice
and I was absolutely correct.
Not only was it a well-put-together
funny&heartwarming movie
but it was surprisingly thinspirational.
all tiny&beautiful ladies.
At one point...
Kate Bosworth was making a smoothie in the kitchen
and as she reached her arms out to work the blender
every bone in her body protruded.
A wonderfully thinspiring sight. 
I must.must.must get my shit together.
"Are there any more burritos left?"
"No."
"I guess I'll just eat a hot sauce packet."
-L!fe Happens

I'd love it if the boyfriend got a job in California.
Being in that sunshine
and surrounded by those beautiful people
would definitely be a constant thinspiration.

Non-Eating LA

In the 2nd LA episode of Season 3
of Sex & the City
when Miranda meets up with one a
New York turned LA resident friend
who'd lost 30lbs.
She's enticed by his new mindset&looks
until she realizes just how hard he's working
to keep those pounds off
after she see him chewing his steak
then spitting it into his napkin.
"What are you doing?"
"Do you think I look this good by eating!?"

I need to remember that.

MK&A Thinspo

The Olson twins have always been a source of thinspiration for me.
They've beautiful&thin
and it all seems so effortless for them.
[though I know that's not true.]
Their movies are silly&cheesy
and they've dropped out of the spotlight recently.
But I love their clothes&hair
and their big, pouty eyes are perfect.
And since I've always been a bit of a hippie
my absolute favorite is MK.
Obviously, though, I haven't done as well
skipping meals
as MK did for a while.
I may be keeping my caloric intake low
but not low enough
and I haven't been working out for shit.
Maybe I'll fast tomorrow...
I need to shrink this stomach back down.

Cig-Free Bitch

I borrowed a book from a girlfriend Saturday morning
and
spent the weekend reading the whole thing.
Skinny Bitch.
I know, I know... cliche
and everyone's who's ever thought
they could be tiny has read it.
I found it kind of crazy that the opening page
discussed the need to quit smoking.
I haven't discussed it on my blog
...maybe because I was thinking:
if I don't make a big deal
I'll actually succeed.
But I guess I might as well say it out loud:
I haven't smoked a cigarette since December 30, 2012.
Not really because of any of the reasons listed
but I'll admit there are some great reasons to quit.
I'll get into other aspects of the book I liked&disliked
in later posts.

the Carrie Diaries

Considering my love for Sex & the City
it's no surprise that I was pumped
to see the commercials
on Mondays @ 8 on the CW.
I've only seen one episode so far
but I really like it.
The main actress has big
[or should I say tiny]
beautiful&fashionable shoes&outfits to fill
in her role as the young Carrie Bradshaw
and I look forward to seeing her character unfold
and her clothing displayed.

Skinny Porn

Speaking of masturbation...
[see yesterday's post]
I'll be the first to admit that:
I love porn.
I tend to use it as a distractionary tool
like when I had a big paper due in college...
I wasted my first hour of "research time"
watching porn.
And once I'd used up all 5 free-views
on youporn.com
[recently I've switched to redtube]
I'd decide it was time to actually do work.
I rarely watch a whole video.
And I rarely turn up the volume.
Oddly enough,
I like to scroll through the categories
looking at the photo previews
and trying to find my favorite, skinny girls.

...Sex can make or break
how skinny I feel.
If I'm feeling tiny and I bend&flex in bed
I feel more motivated to stay tiny.
If I'm feeling chunky or sloppy,
I don't feel sexy and don't want to have sex...

This girl is tiny.

Miranda's Binge

Season 4 of Sex & the City this weekend.
Episode 4 was too good not to blog about.
Miranda gives up sex
and starts binge-eating chocolate.
It's sad, yet hysterical.
She makes a cake
eats most of it
throws the rest out and
- completely tortured -
picks it out of the garbage to eat the rest.
I can't say I've ever eaten anything our of the garbage.
But I've definitely baked something
then thrown it away
so I wouldn't actually eat it.
I'd definitely pick masturbation/sex
over binge-eating chocolate.
Definitely.

LC's Months

The boyfriend&I decided we'd try
a version of these suggestions
made in one of LC's blog posts.
Some of her posts are so great.
Obviously, she's thin&beautiful
so she's worth following
(in my opinion)
and taking some advice from.
Even though we are tweaking
what we plan to give up every month,
it's fun to have a partner in dieting
and a goal.
And a month without something
seems so manageable.
I've cheated on my non-dairy-plan
a couple times...
so maybe we'll try that one of our months.

Weekend Blogging

Food tracking "for my blog" over my weekend vacation
was really helpful.
Though I still gained
- 127lbs the morning I left -
- 136lbs the afternoon I got home -
- 129lbs this morning -
I knew how much I was intaking or planning to intake
even in an unhealthy&unhelpful environment.
I felt good - looked good - and tried to behave.
Since we've been home
we've been too busy to grocery shop
...so I've been eating what we happen to have.
I can't wait for this weekend
so I can get to the grocery store
and prep my meals for next week.
But thankfully
I am pretty happy that I kept track of myself
over this past weekend
and now I just have to get back on track.

Goal Options

Bodybuilding: Female bodybuilders are graded much like their male counterparts. However, judges look for these women to maintain a feminine look. 


Bikini: Bikini athletes must have a healthy physique; judges are not looking for striated muscularity or definition. They're graded for their symmetry, confidence, skin tone, and grace. 

Figure: Figure judges seek a more feminine physique than bodybuilding, but look for more athletic, muscular, and conditioned physiques than bikini athletes.

Fitness: These women demonstrate their strength, flexibility, and fitness in a choreographed routine. They'll also be judged in a side-by-side bikini round. 

Women's Physique (new): These competitors are more muscular than figure athletes, but are not hard, defined, or dry like bodybuilders.

Some Goals

A link to the article Bodybuilding.com did on the MADE girl
who inspired me.
I'm actually getting more and more excited about this...
Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone.

If you want to change, you can't continue down the same road. Push beyond what you think is possible.

Enlist The Help Of A Mentor.
Having someone who has been in the trenches can be a huge asset to achieving your physique or fitness goals. A mentor will keep you accountable, cheer for you, educate you, and give you a shoulder to lean—or cry—on.

Prioritize Your Time.
Fitting fitness into a busy schedule can be challenging and stressful. But with proper time management and organization, you'll be much more equipped to handle anything.

Have A Good Support System.
Along the way, you may find who people don't understand what you're doing. Forget them. Surround yourself with people who will buoy you throughout!

Your Mind Is Your Most Valuable Tool.
If you think you can't do it, you won't. A strong body can't happen without a strong mind.

Weekend Results

When adding up my 2 days of vacation food
it doesn't look so good.
I didn't feel like I did that poorly,
but I definitely could have done better.
We indulged.
The boyfriend kept saying
"eat now, cause starting Monday, you'll have none."
So I indulged..
probably too much...
and I'm sitting here wishing I'd behaved.
But I could have been worse.
And I could have been better.
Tomorrow morning's weigh-in will not be fun.
Throughout the trip, though
I felt very thin&beautiful.
I ran around the hotel in my bikini
and laid on the beach & by the pool
feeling very confident in my body.
And the boyfriend let me know how little I looked
and how much he liked it
so that helped my say "no" a bit
until I had some drinks and slammed naughties.

Sex & Thinspo

The boyfriend bought me
the entire Sex & the City series
for Christmas.
I decided to start watching it with this serious diet.
Skinny&Successful Women having lots of Sex
is quite good thinspiration for me.

Someday I hope to wear
short tops and high-waisted pants&skirts
or any of the silly things she pulls off so easily
because a skinny body can wear anything.

Motivation&Weekends

"None of the waitresses at SUR are over a size 2."
-VANDERPUMP RULES
Bravo TV has a million thinspirational shows.
Everyone is tiny
and shameless about accepting&requiring the tininess.
With little&plastic women
running around their sunshine-filled cities
and beautiful&youthful socialites
living their lives so fashionably&fun-filled
makes me want to perfect my body
and show myself off more often
in this warm climate I thrive in.
I need to be taking more advantage of my surroundings.

And
- on the page of surroundings -
I'm excited to spend the weekend in Miami with the BF.
We'll obviously be eating out and drinking.
But we'll also be in bikinis and fucking a lot.
So maybe we'll behave more than I think...

Consistant (finally)

So, I've been doing pretty well with the hCG Diet.
I've had Red Wine Vinegar on my salad ever night
and some Fat Free Italian on my lunch veggies today
and a few pieces of desperation candy
at the end of my work day
cause I thought I was going to starve to death
(not possible)
but, sides those here&theres
I think I've been pretty good.
And, I've consistently weighed between 127-128lbs
from morning to night all week
which makes me incredibly happy.
It's hard to work out - burn calories - & not to eat.
But when I see results
like a bit of weightloss
and the ability to keep it off
I feel motivated enough not to give up & binge.

.Must.Keep.It.Up.
