#TWEETMYWEIGHT is trending on Twitter.

#TWEETMYWEIGHT is trending on Twitter.

I’m pretty sure that’s the worst idea I’ve read.

Tweet my weight? That’s got to be instigating a few easting disorders. It did make me feel guilty enough to think about going to the gym. What really put me over the edge were the bathing suits I bought online from Victoria’s Secret. Online, they’re on super hot, air brushed women, but when they showed up in my mail box it was another story. One I returned altogether –it was supposed to be a “Miraculous” push up top, but really it was the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen. Imagine a B&W, polka-dotted cantaloupe made out of Temperpedic mattress material; then imagine cutting it in half, attaching both halves to strings, and wearing it as a bikini top. I imagine no one would dare wear it into the water, because it would absorb so much and eventually drown you with the weight.

So anyway, the other suits I bought were gorgeous (and ON SALE,) so I didn’t return them; I just tried them on and vowed to lose at least 5 more pounds before every wearing them in public, and definitely before going to Miami –the land of the thin, tanned, and Porsched.

SIDE NOTE: Only 10 more days ‘til I’m actually in Miami, and I am so excited! I’ll be spending the first half of the week visiting Miami and my awesome friend DB. The second half of the week will be spent in Orlando when I will FINALLY get to explore the magical world of Harry Potter in Universal Studios. I. Can’t. Wait.

            Can I say “Thank God” for my other friend [who happens to also be named] DB. He’s the kind of guy who is super cool and flexible and always down to do whatever. He is also the only person who will actually get my butt to the gym. Yesterday we went to Tilton Gym. It’s a huge gym full of snobs and awesome equipment. It also has a pool, a hot tub, a sauna, and a steam room. We worked out for an hour and then he tried to teach me how to swim—really swim. I give you swimmers props, because it is super difficult to even do a full lap, much less look graceful while doing it.

            I’ve started eating healthier a month or so ago, but now I feel like in order to take the next step, I really need to start working out REGULARLY. Tilton is a bit out of my price range, but they do offer student discounts, and today I found out that my job is actually some sort of corporate member so I’ll be able to get a discount that way as well. BONUS: my job has a fitness incentive—if you go to the gym 28 times in 6 months, they put an extra $60 in your paycheck. Not bad! That might cover one month’s membership costs.
