I prefer spearmint, thanks...Oh, and intuitiveness.

Why hello lovelies. I hope you are all doing well. I shall get to your comments soon but for now I just cannot be bothered. Procastination is my greatest virtue =) Thank you all for your comments though!

So, I've been reading Wintergirls and I must say, it is very inspiring. It is a tale of a girl's bout with anorexia and...well you can Wikipedia it for yourselves and see what it's about lol.

I must say, I'm not a fan of the author's writing style, although it is something that I've never come across before. Interesting, creative, but, I can't be bothered with it too. It lacks the continuinity I value in novels. Anyway, I'm not finished it yet. But I think the book mentioned wintergreen gum and I though I should mention that nothing is better than spearmint, point blank!

Okay, so I've been living off of diet pepsi and one small meal a day and I'm loving it. I've also been doing some research and have come across something called "intuitive eating" which basically means eating until your hunger is satiated as opposed to eating until you're full. It also means eating ONLY when you are hungry and water or other fluids cannot do the trick. So I've been trying it and it's amazing how we really DON'T need that much food in us to feel satisfied. A few bites, and we're good. So why do we gorge ourselves like greedy little pigs? And then feel like hell afterwards? It really is a mental thing...I'm going to try this for a week and let you guys know how its going along the way.

Hmm, what else to say? Sorry for not posting yesterday, I had work practically all day (and only ate toast for the whole 8 hours!) and then I was too tired afterwards...hmm maybe I should provide the link for Wintergirls so you guys can read it online if you haven't already. Well, have a great day lovelies =]


  1. Tell me how the intuitive eating goes! It sounds like it's going great for you and I might try it as well. Goodluck! Also, thanks for the link i've been dying for a new book to read!

  2. hope the intuitive eating goes well, we humans dont need much food to survive, we're just an impatient species. the thing with that authors books... im not sure what it is. i always feel angry with her at the end of the book, the author, i think its the fact that she researches all this.

  3. Spearmint ftw!

    Thank you for the link, it's gonna be a study reward :p

    OOOOHH BUBBLE BATH! You have the best ideas <3

  4. Thanks for the link! I've been reading it most of the night, it's pretty enticing.
    Good luck with your new plans, the intuitive eating sounds pretty secure. I would do that during school without even noticing and it usually worked out nicely.

  5. spearmint, excellento.

    lovely post dearest.

  6. Sounds great! And I love the title. :) <3

  7. You're spot on with this one. I totally agree- it really doesn't take that much to satisfy MY hunger. And think about it- when our species was evolving in the wild, do you think they got to eat a lot? No. It's just how our metabolism was developed. It's not supposed to handle the amount of food we're eating!

  8. I've been dying to read this, thanks for the link :D And good luck on the intuitive eating plan.

  9. I loved that book! I just finished reading it. Very inspiring. Kinda lets you know to try not to let it go to far, but hey, we can all be perfect if we just stay strong!
