#2 // 25 while I’m 25// Diets and Bridesmaid Dresses

“I’ll start my diet tomorrow.”

Anyone else ever said that? I’ve said it many times and guess what? It’s the first of May and tomorrow is finally here.

I’m a bridesmaid in my dearest friend’s wedding this July. We have the most adorable bridesmaid dresses which feature delicate lace on the top half of the dress. We ordered the dresses from Australia and apparently, all girls in Australia are tiny.  I ordered the largest size available and when I tried it on, I felt like I was one dance move away from ripping the back open like the Hulk. Obviously, I don’t want to cause a scene while I’m doing the running man on the dance floor, so the only solution is to do what I’ve been saying for years. Eat healthier and reduce my portion sizes. I’m an all or nothing kind of girl, so in the name of eating healthy, I’ve decided to ban the following “problem” foods from my diet for (at least) the next 10 weeks:

  1. Doughnuts (Last Friday, Matt and I had doughnuts and Starbucks lattes for dinner. It was wonderful but some (or everyone!) may say that it was a less than healthy meal choice)
  2. French Fries (Too often, I crave In N Out and McDonald’s fries)
  3. Tortilla Chips (This is going to kill me this weekend for Cinco de Mayo!)

So sorry if you really don’t care about what I’m not going to eat for the next 10 weeks, but I’ve found that putting stuff out there on the Web helps keep me accountable.

On a different note, Matt and I spent the weekend in Monterey a few weeks back. We stopped at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and on our way home, we went to Pismo Beach. I’ll share some more pictures from our trip next week, but here are some self portraits for my “25 while I’m 25 series”.

I have quite a few shoots in the works right now and I can’t wait to share them in the coming weeks!

 Happy Wednesday!
