Hello, stranger! Ok, so I'm the stranger round these parts. Where have you been? You may be wondering. Either that or you didn't notice that I haven't blogged since last July.
Well, a lot of things have happened, and not very much has happened at all, if that makes sense. I grew increasingly uninspired by my sartorial options as my body ballooned. I decided around my one year wedding anniversary that enough is enough! And I started to get in shame. (Ok, I admit that I was also inspired by Jackie Warner's Thintervention on Bravo. What? I love Jackie's style, especially when she wore a Debbie Harry T to the 'getting your sexy back' themed episode. She has that kind of moto/tom-boy style that I've always loved, but I was really too short and chubby to replicate it and feel comfortable/attractive.
Long story short, I buy her book, realize I've been addicted to refined sugar and processed foods for the last, oh, 28 years, so I changed my diet, started working out, and I've lost 19 pounds.
I read a couple of other books while getting my health groove on, one of which was Skinny Bitch. I picked it up thinking I'm just going to look for ideas, I'm not going to go vegan or anything crazy.
Except that Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin really made a lot of sense. And after I'd started to 'eat clean' I had fewer meat/dairy cravings.
Then I read Slaughterhouse by Gail A. Eisnitz. Then I watched Earthlings.
I came out of the closet, as a vegan.
Yep. So needless to say, I didn't get that Marc by Marc Jacobs bag I last posted about.
