  1. Dr Deffy’s Holistic Hotness This is the challenge in which I move out of the trap I have found myself in, that being the “fur coat and no knickers” approach to fitness. It’s no good looking peng on the outside if I’m not wearing knickers on the inside. Or something. So I spent most of last challenge not doing anything I said I was going to do but that’s not all that unusual. I often do this because I tend to overcomplicate this stuff with silly rules and extra bits I never actually do. Those bits are always unnecessary, so long as I am showing up to the gym, giving 110% and eating fairly well I hit my goals easy peasy. Only I haven’t been doing either of those things either. There are two aspects to this thing. The outward appearance and the inward stuff that goes on and I am not very good at balancing them both. So in this challenge I am going to work on it all. I have been reading The 4 Pillar Plan and I think it’s all common sense, perhaps with a little bit of bullshit thrown in there but Dr Chattergee is so delightful I am willing to overlook that. My favourite part of this book is where he was clearly asked by his photographer to go forth into nature and just smoulder for a while, and he is a little embarrassed by it all which honestly is the very least he could do. I digress, but I am not going to be following the 4 Pillar Plan although I have used it as inspiration for my Holistic Hotness programme. My goals are the same as ever. I want to look peng. To do this, I have to eat well and exercise. And I mean like really eat well, not say I am going to eat well and then go to McDonalds twice in one week. Something I did steal borrow from the 4 Pillar Plan is to further define my usual Don’t Eat Like A Dickhead rules to mean anything that has 5 or more ingredients on the label is now verboten. This makes it a little less wishy washy. So I can eat anything I already have but I can’t buy anything else that breaks this rule. This does not cover things I eat out of the house with other people so I cannot eschew my healthy lunch again for Awesome Chips and call it kosher because it ain’t. This will take care of the internal aspect of food in that the food I eat will be of better quality, and although I am definitely not tracking, I also have to be mindful of calories to take care of the external aspect – the weight loss bit. I also want to give more effort in the gym. Cardio gets me skinny and I love it. But proper training will make me strong and ensure I have the knickers to go under that fur coat. I want to work on strength training more. I am not going to set any specific rules in any of my goals for this challenge because I just ignore them immediately anyway, but I want to comment on what I have done to reach my goals that day. Food porn will probably happen. I very much doubt I will be in a position to Post my Boast any time soon but you never know. I want to make sure I am treating my body properly and giving it the attention it needs. Skincare will be important, I will be exfoliating and bringing back the moisturising of the body parts I can stand moisturising. It’s pointless looking hot if nobody wants to touch me. So that’s the looking peng part but it’s not as vapid as it seems in that I want to be a better person, cause less damage to this big lump of rock I inhabit and I want to learn stuff as well. More knickers! It’s no good looking hot if you don’t stand for anything, or have nothing interesting to say, or you’re a horrible person. My gran always told me that a person could be beautiful outside but if they were a horrible person inside, the ugliness of the person inside would burn through that pretty veneer. Admittedly she had some weird ideas but I am willing to go with her on this one. I will pay myself more attention, check in on how I am feeling, ruminate on aspects of my life and there will be lots of self love happening in this challenge too. I want to be kind to myself, treat myself, drink lots of herbal tea in the wintry sunshine on the patio and have lots of baths. New challenge, let’s goooooooooooooooo!

    Tuesday Update I was just gonna post gifs again but then I thought nah, I should probably do a proper update. I spent the day doing not a lot. I played Spyro and The Sims whilst watching First Dates, under a blanket with a cat on me and I loved it. I did have plans to clean the house but I really couldn't be fucked so I did nothing at all. I did do a workout but I phoned in the bare minimum, but hey, this is what the streak is for - maintaining a base line of effort even if I really can't be arsed, which seems to be frequently these days. I'm not sure what is going on or why my motivation is so fleeting. It does seem all my rewards are falling flat and I'm not sure what is important to me any more. I think in general I don't really have much direction and this is feeding into everything else. I need to sort my shit out and find my focus. After my workout I cooked a beef and chickpea saag whilst listening to a lecture by one of my favourite people in the world about Realistic Utopias vs Dystopic Realities - about the failings of that troublesome collective delusion modern economics. It was great. Then I picked TH up from work and we watched trashy TV all night.

    Terah if you're sploshing with quinoa I need to remind you of the existence of trifle. You're welcome.
  4. I am also glad the panic was for no reason, and I am also glad you are probably right now at home and also in bed. I hope you don't get any more frights.

    I'm quite sure I got lower on my squats than I usually do, thanks to the dutch courage to attempt that in heels. I highly recommend it.

    I had no option, I have a streak to keep up and I wanted to keep my buzz going between pubs It was great fun though, I might open a themed gym.

    Urgh those mosquito bites >.< I hear wiping lavender oil around the window frames stop them coming in. I tried it once and it did stop them but I live in Britain and they're not a huge problem here so it's likely it was a coincidence and the days I had the lavender oil on my windowframe coincided with days the three mosquitos in the neighbourhood didn't want to bother coming in anyway but worth a try right?!

    Sunday Update We had a lazy morning yesterday then went into town because I needed to buy petrol and I thought while I was there I might as well try to find some clothes. It was equally unsuccessful, really, although I did buy two skirts and a top from a charity shop. I didn't try it on while I was there because I figured I would just donate it back if it didn't work. Pretty sure, having tried it all on, this is exactly what I am going to do. The problem I have is with my hips. They are really wide and in comparison my waist is tiny, so to fit me, skirts have to sit too high and they make me look twice as big as I am. The same deal with jeans. The only thing that doesn't make me look huge is leggings and they are very unforgiving, so I have to wear dresses and tights but dresses don't fit both my boobs and the rest of me at the same time so I have to pick if I am going to look like a porn star with boobs busting out all over, or look matronly because they fit my boobs and hang off the rest of me. This is why pyjamas work so much better - they are stretchy. So I either resign myself to looking terrible until I have shrunk my hips a bit (which is probably not going to happen, they shrink down in proportion to the rest of me) or I just give up and wear tracksuits for the rest of my life. My shopping trip was successful on the one hand though, I finally found a lampshade for the bedroom. Ms P did leave a lampshade in the bedroom but it's horrible and I have hated it the whole time we have been here but I have William Morris wallpaper on my ceiling and 1/5th of the way down the wall and finding something that doesn't clash with that has been a challenge to say the least. I'm not a massive fan of it but I guess it's a feature if we ever sell the house The lampshade is black with an enchanted forest cut out into it. When the light is on it looks very pretty. I also bought some flowering cacti and yet more knickers (I have a problem). When we got back I played the Sims while TH played Battlefront then I did my workout. A thirty minute elliptical session, and then I had a bath where I read more of my book and put on a facemask and hair mask. Then we went to my mom's for dinner, and when we got back TH had a bath because he wasn't feeling great and I didn't really feel like doing anything so I sieved the dust out of his camomile tea whilst listening to Fleetwood Mac (not a euphemism) and then I polished his boots and changed his laces. I read more of my book in the evening while he finished watching a French football match, then we came to bed where I read more. I am very much enjoying my book again. Good Internal - Doing lots of nice things for TH while he was in the bath Good External - Face mask and hair mask. My hair is very shiny today.

    My problem has always been I look terrible in outside clothes. I look pretty good in pyjamas, but nobody ever sees me in those. The struggle really is real.

    Saturday Update I had quite a bit of work to do so I did that first, then we had an attic adventure. I am mostly scared of the attic because I am a bit of a fanny and really scared of heights. To the point where standing at the top of the stairs sometimes makes me feel a bit weird but if you tell anyone else that I will deny it. Our attic has one of those pull down ladders in it and going up was mostly not a problem but I knew I would freak out when it was time to get down and I wasn't wrong but TH helped by teaching me the best way to come down. Once I had done it, I kinda sussed it so I went back up and came down a few times and now that fear has no power over me. TH is right, the attic is a great space and we could even extend it a little further over the top of the extension by putting in a dormer to give us a little more height. We had better get saving for the renovation. And a 3 month holiday while there are strangers in my house doing the work (I freaking hate that...) The plan was to stay in but TH suddenly decided he loved me and wanted to take me out shopping and who am I to refuse an offer like that. I do want more clothes too, I hate everything I own. I tried very hard to spend money but all the clothes were crap. I only managed to buy three books and two pairs of knickers. I obviously need neither but at least the knickers are in colours I don't already have. Which actually renders them more pointless, thinking about it because I don't have to bras to match and I like to match. Eh, that was an unsuccessful shopping trip huh. We stopped off for ciders then came home. I still hadn't done a workout but we wanted to go to the pub at the end of my row of houses - it's a sports bar that sells Indian food, TH checked it out the other day when I went out with SBF and he said the food was good. So I got home and did the most half assed workout I think I have ever done. I didn't even put my workout clothes on, I just stripped down to my underwear and kept my heels on because I read that helps, and did half an hour of butt training moves while watching the telly and drinking a bottle of beer. Health - Deffy style! After this I put my clothes back on and we walked to the sports bar. It was a total sausage fest, it was really packed and I was the only woman in there. TH ordered the food and got us more beers while we waited. It's pretty cool we live so close to that place, they have a huge TV screen so it'll be awesome when there's a big game on. A really great day but I really wish I could find some nice non-work clothes :/ The search continues.

    That's pretty fancy. Honestly though, i don't think I have received a cheque in about four years and I haven't written one in over a decade. Pretty sure the last cheque I wrote was to pay the rent on my halls of residence when I was at uni in 2003. They're hardly accepted anywhere as payment these days, I don't know why cheques don't just fuck off.

    We did not! We found a lot of cables running to the extension but we can't get to it to see where they lead. Our current theories are either they are for the extractor fan we have a switch for that does nothing at all, or another family are living in the roof space above the extension which might explain why our electricity bill is 3x what we were paying in our old house [emoji848]

    Friday Update It was a scheduled refeed day yesterday so I ate trash all day to get my calories up. I loved it, it was great. I had a cheese and onion bake and pink jammie for breakfast and I allowed myself coffee mate in my coffee because mmmm and that was grand. I was very busy at work and at lunch time I had to run out to the bank to deposit yet another cheque. I realise this is a terribly first world problem but I wish people would stop sending me cheques, it's very inconvenient and also it is 2019, there are a number of other ways to give me money. Another jaunt to the Business District at lunch time, and I got stuck in the queue behind a mad woman who was demanding to know who she paid a specific direct debit to in 2002. It was 17 years ago, that ship has surely sailed, whatever it was. But she was adamant she had to know. Eventually they escorted her to another room to be mad on the phone to customer services and I finally got served. I grabbed a McDonald's for lunch. After work I went grocery shopping and picked TH up and we had pizza and ice cream for dinner. Yesterday's food was epic and I have not a single regret. I have a lot of work to do this weekend but I am going to be brave and go into the attic for the first time. I am very scared of the attic but TH is really excited about converting it into our main bedroom so we can have children and not lose the dressing room or the pole dancing studio so I guess I had better go up and scope it out. Wish me luck!

    Hmm. If he had won a few thousand grand then that wouldn't be enough to retire on (although given his expensive clothes I assume he does something very lucrative already) so I would probably open a restaurant or bistro. People are welcome to eat in their underwear - when I get peng I will be working in my underwear so at least I will look less odd if other people join me. See I think we'd need him to have won a few million to buy the Caribbean Socialist Paradise island which is unlikely from a bet. If he has won enough to retire on I plan to tour the world, visiting the most beautiful beaches (I was born to be by the sea), the most amazing cities and buying the worlds prettiest bikinis. I would also have butt surgery because that ain't gonna happen organically. So I will take my giant butt on the tour of the world with Debonair Stare and that sounds like a plan.

    I am quite sure he already has a car since he gets off at the Park and Ride. He wasn't on my train this evening so I can only imagine he won big and I hope he is enjoying his winnings and spending them as I would have.

    Possibly, although this is something that has happened in the last month or so. I gained weight at the beginning with the Nuvaring and I am currently losing it. I guess the NuvaRing is the only possible explanation actually if my weight overall is coming down. Good call!

    Thursday Update Yesterday didn't go entirely to plan and I had a lot on at work. I didn't get my lunch until later again giving me a 18 hour fast and I was feeling very low in energy. Everyone else had nipped to McDonald's on their lunch so I thought I would too since I was going out to buy TH a valentine's day card anyway and I was almost there and decided that I didn't need that shit. I bought some chicken and a creme egg from Sainsbury's instead. I got TH's card and I bought us both some chocolates from Hotel Chocolat as a Valentine' Day present to us both because TH has this thing where he either buys me some flowers and a card for Valentine's Day, or he claims he doesn't think we do cards and stuff on Valentine's Day. This year it was the latter so I am glad I remembered he did this and got them for us both instead of just him or he would have felt bad he didn't get me anything. I think I am going to buy myself something for Me-entine's Day today though. I have no idea what. On the train on the way home Starey Man was staring at me. This is a man who always gets on my train and stares at me a lot. This time he sat on the seat in front of me but the aisle seat, whereas I was sitting in the window seat so since he had to turn around to do his staring, it was pretty obvious he was staring at me. He is a very debonair looking man. He pulled out a betting slip so I leaned forward to try and see if he was onto a winner but unfortunately I couldn't make out what it said. Nevermind, I probably shouldn't run away with a Staring Man from my train on Valentine's Day. I might see if he is there today and looking more flush. After dinner I had a bubble bath and a read in the bath, then I had an early night. Good Internal - I am proud of myself for thinking ahead and saving TH's feelings with the Valentine's present. Good External - I wore my new dress to work and it made me happy. Even if it does button up all the way and the buttons keep popping so I randomly just flash people. I should probably swap the buttons for slightly larger ones... Also I enjoyed my very relaxing bath and I am feeling quite trim today. I might try to go lingerie shopping again although that seems like a bad idea. I wish I knew wtf is happening with my body. I haven't even been drinking coconut juice.

    You're definitely not wrong there. The main reason I was reading this book was to challenge my opinion so I should probably carry on reading since that was the whole point. Are you also finding you want to kill people by the end of it?

    I know [emoji6] My back size has stayed the same and I have gone up either one or two cup sizes. I could have tried more on to definitively size myself up but to be honest, I don't want to know. It's hard enough to find pretty bras in my size as it is. I'd rather bury my head in the sand and keep stuffing them into my normal size.

    Wednesday Update I was rushed off my feet again yesterday and didn't manage to get my lunch break until 3 which means a 20 hour fast. I ate yoghurt and chia seeds and 4 party rings for about 250 calories. I then went shopping to buy some spring clothes to wear for work. I don't care what the weather is actually doing, I am switching to my spring wardrobe because I have had enough of winter and if I freeze to death then well that will just serve winter right, won't it. I went shopping for bras because I want new lingerie, and I tried on that set I was going to have as my goal, you know - this one? Well... um... nope. It doesn't quite go up to my cup size but sometimes I can get away with it but not this time. I took a pic and almost put it on Instagram and then thought nah, this is too way too booby so I sent it to TH instead who said I should buy it anyway, of course. So yeah, long story short, given all the bras I tried on yesterday I think my boobs have grown again which is weird because I have actually lost weight. Also I am almost at my goal to win that lingerie set and now I have no prize which makes me sad, and I tried about 6 other sets on and none of them fit and they don't go bigger. Which is massively annoying because it was hard enough already and WHAT IS THE POINT IF I DON'T HAVE MY PRIZES >.< TH was off yesterday so he made us veggie burgers for dinner. Afterwards we had a little dark chocolate and I ended the day just under 1300 calories. We came to bed early to read but I am losing interest in my book about Jerusalem since I'm now in the modern era and it's ancient history that is my jam. Good Internal - Fasting I guess Good External - Well it wasn't buying new bras, that's for sure. Although TH would disagree and say that bra was great external. I think his response was OH MY, but the Boobs-busting-out look isn't quite what I was going for. I have nothing for good external. Meh.
