My new project is…

August 15, 2011


Tomorrow is a busy day for me.  First I am going to see my lovely beauty therapist Ané.  She will be removing the hair from the places that I would prefer hairless.  I am so chuffed with myself that I am keeping this up.  Low pain threshold – bullshit!  I have graduated from just the bikini area to underarms and legs.  Tomorrow I am attempting to add eyebrows to this list.  Eyebrows for me are the worst.  Not the waxing but the plucking.  My eyes start watering and I feel like I’m going to hurl on the person with the tweezers.  I really love Ané, she is terribly sweet, a little shy and best of all I love her name.  <Although I prefer the Anais spelling, but alas, Joe Public would probably pronounce it incorrectly every chance they got>.  So because of my fondness for Ané, I have warned her that if she comes at me with tweezers, there may well be disturbing consequences.  She has promised to use her ‘chocolate wax’.  How can I say no to that?

The other thing in my quest to become Miss South Africa is that I am going for a fitness assessment at my local ladies only gym.  I’ll wait for you to get back on to your chair.


Yes it is something that I have been turning around in my head for a couple of months now.  I am so unfit, so overweight, so exhausted all the time.  Gym really does seem to be the answer.  Before Andre and I got married we joined the gym, in anticipation of our Eurotrip Honeymoon.  We wanted to be as fit as we could be so that we could enjoy our trip to the fullest.  Well we did go fairly regularly for a few weeks, fairly irregularly for a couple more months and then avoided that neck of the woods completely.

I went into the gym this afternoon <after a HUGE mug of heavenly café mocha> to check it out.  It looked really really great.  Small, smelly (as any self respecting gym should be), testosterone free (as advertised) and only had about 8 ladies abusing the heavy machinery.  I asked whether there were usually around this number of members working out off-peak and was told that the owner actually considered this to be quite busy.  Yay!  Hopefully no fighting over machines.  That used to seriously piss me off at my previous gym.

A quick visit to their website informed me that I get discounts through my Medical Aid and will most likely not pay a joining fee.  I am a little concerned that they might be promising The Earth and I may only receive London.  But it is seriously worth a shot.  I have nothing to lose, well except weight and R290 per month.  Another nice thing about this gym is that you can chose to either pay month-by-month (more expensive option) or sign a 1 year contract.  Previous gym = No month-by-month and 3 year contract.  Sounds great doesn’t it?

So just to sum up for those who can’t read good.

I want to go from this :
