Motorcycle Chick on a Diet

As promised, I should be getting a SLR in the next two weeks so stay tuned. I just keep delaying it because I hate how I look in photos these days. I've always struggled with weight issues my entire life and recently I've put on weight and its destroying me inside. I know a lot of it is my fault because I went from a health freak to being a time starved student who opts for everything but something healthy. Regardless, I feel like I can't wear anything or the pieces I use to be able to, which I feel impairs my ability to dress as fabulously as I can.

Don't worry, I'm not the type to pity myself. I've been going to the gym again and I push myself hard. I loved working out but I stopped because of school and unfortunately it had a negative affect. Also, eating healthy was a part of my daily lifestyle. I got sick thinking about junk food. That's essentially what happens when you start eating healthy, you crave the good stuff and not the bad stuff. Unfortunately, that went down the drain because I started living with Sid for a while and he barely had anything healthy at his place. Eventually I just started eating whatever was there and I fell off the whole health tip from there. I'm struggling to get back on track, I really need to put grocery shopping and meal prep time ahead of some other priorities.

Honestly, having breakfast and several meals a day is such an integral thing. I took a nutrition class three years ago, when I decided I needed to make a change in my life, and one of our assignments was to record our entire diet for the week. What I realized was I was taking in 700 - 900 calories a day, which is way too low for any woman. I felt I was time starved, so I'd skip breakfast and eat one small meal and maybe a snack in the day. What ended up happening was that my body went into starvation mode and stored everything as fat. I was putting on weight by eating less and that's exactly what has happened recently.

I'm the heaviest now than I have ever been in my entire life BUT I am not the fattest I have ever been. People from my past know how big and geeky I was. So when I say I struggle with weight, trust me I really do. I was "fat", plain and simple. Right now I know some people don't even notice the change in me but I see it everywhere and I've realized my health needs to come first. Stay tuned and I'll keep you updated!

For now, I'll post  some photos of an outfit I wore this sometime last week. Recently I've been dressing in black/grey/white on a regular basis. It's weird because I was always about colour before but now I'm totally loving the whole black and white tip that I've been on. I do hate how I look in these photos but I feel like it gives me the motivation I need to put my health first.

Vroom vroom! I'm out!


  1. Does your bf own a bike or you do? I know, totally out of subject but the title is why i decided to read mention of a bike!!!

  2. LOL, here's where it gets tricky. This entitled "Motorcycle Chick..." because of what I'm wearing not because I own a bike. I own a car, not a bike. Though, I've always wanted a bike and when I have the extra income for it, I will consider purchasing one. It's something I've wanted since I was young.
