7 dinge wat my irriteer van my man tydens lockdown

Annette de wet influencer

Dames, sê my wat SY naam is. Jy weet, daai oulike skepsel wat saam met jou in isolasie sit wat jy soms, net soms, met die koekroller wil slaan oor die kop. O, wag, ons is millennials so jy sal hom seker wil slaan met jou Nutribullet.

Hoe lief ek ook al vir my man is, hier is 7 dinge wat hy doen wat my irriteer tydens die inperking. Die woord ‘inperking’ irriteer my ook.

1 Ek moet elke dag, heel dag, sit en  kyk hoe hy eet wat hy wil.

Weet julle hoe bly was die sadis in my toe Woolies nie meer pasteie mag verkoop nie… hy snack mos 2 pepper steak pasteie voor ete. My ma het een keer genoem dat hy dalk wurms het terug in 2013. Hy het haar nog nooit vergewe oor die aanmerking nie. Wel, ek dink daai wurms het al kleinkinders gekry daar binne…

2 Hy oefen nie, maar het meer spiere as ek.

Ek is op ‘n oefen masjien rol, want vir twee jaar het ek gesukkel om my energie terug te kry na ‘n baie lelike burnout…. dalk doen ek nog ‘n blog post daaroor, maar dis lelik, so ek weet nie.

 

So doen ek Kayla Itsiness se BBG program drie keer ‘n week, hardloop 5km in my sitkamer op Saterdae en doen my aanlyn ballet klas. Hy. Hy doen ‘n paar pushups op die trap en kom nooit verder as 3km in die sitkamer nie, maar pronk van die spiere. Hy het ook ‘n 6-pack. En V-lines wat se lyne meer perfek getrek is as ‘n laerskool juffrou se handskrif.

Intussen soos ek rond draf van my rusbank tot die eetkamertafel skaaf ek my bobene bloedrooi, want ek het nie ‘n thigh gap nie. My thigh gap sit tussen my voortande en dis okay.

3 Hy raas met my as die groente verval

Kyk, ek eet gesond en ek gaan nie elke dag winkel toe loop vir ‘n appel en ‘n ‘ui’ nie, so van tyd tot tyd gaan klein bietjie van die goed af gaan in ons yskas. Hy kan dit nie verstaan nie.

Ek het wel ‘n geheim ontdek… sodra die spinasie se einde nader kom, gooi ek dit in ‘n pot. Dan hoef ek letterlik net een teelepel te eet wanneer dit gaar word, want dis al wat oorbly.

4 Hy wil nie tien uur bed toe gaan nie.

Ek is ‘n oggend mens. Hy is ‘n aand mens en nou met lockdown wat alles bietjie mal is, is vreemde slaappatrone seker normaal. Plus ons is dan by die huis, so waarvoor moet ons reëls hê – sê hy. Ek verskil.

5 Sy TikTok videos doen beter as myne.

Ek het ‘n TikTok account begin en gedink ‘okay, dalk is ek nie te oud vir hierdie nie’ en ek was selfs beïndruk met die bietjie views wat my videos reeds gekry het. Hier kom hy (laat ons liewer nie sy ouderdom weggee nie) en kry dubbel die hoeveelheid views met sy eerste video.

6 Die Xbox verslawing is real.

Ek het nie ‘n probleem dat hy homself besig hou nie, maar die Xbox is gekonnekteer aan ons TV.

Ek is mos verbied om die Kardashians te kyk in ons huis, so nou gebruik ek maar hierdie tyd om dit skelm op my foon te kyk. So, dis eintlik ‘n wen-wen.

7 Ons baklei oor die verwamer.

Ek kry koud. En my hond kry ook koud. Hy dink ons is ekstra (okay, ons is seker) en gaan aan oor die prys van koopkrag en en en. Dis winter, baby, toe nou.

Laastens irriteer dit my dat hy nog steeds perfek is aan die einde van die dag. Laat ek maar die Nutribullet gaan bêre weer…

Laat weet my in die kommentaar wat jou irriteer van jou ander òf beter helfte en volg my asb op Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/annette_dewet/

6 fat shaming myths that should stop

I am not skinny, but I am definitely not fat. And if I was, so what?

My mom and dad blessed me with gorgeous curves, which is also my biggest curse.

In primary school everyone made fun of my booty, but now all those bullies are squatting in the gym to grow one.

I’ve been told that I should get married in a flowy wedding dress, because of my little big hip situation, but then I went and ordered the most figure hugging designer gown and guess what, I looked beautiful AF.

Women with a genetic curvy body have issues that ‘normal size’ or skinny women just never will understand. Or want to understand.

Here’s the 5 biggest fat shaming myths women with curves have to deal with.

1. “But you don’t look like a runner!”

I’ve ran two half marathons and try to get in one 10 kilometre per week. Sometimes I feel depressed and then I don’t exercise for two weeks – sue me.

The amount of people that have questioned my running because of my body shape is shamelessly high. Most people picture a slender athlete with calves for days when they think about a runner, not someone’s whose calve muscle when straight to their thighs.

2. “Don’t worry, we can do it at your pace.”

There’s a lot of hiking trails in Cape Town and people will always tell me that we can do it at my pace. My pace? What do you mean my pace? Just because I have more fat than muscle, does not mean that I am not stronger than you.

Same thing at the gym. You get ‘cute’ girls who does the same ‘cute’ exercises in the gym daily and rarely build muscle, but they never get questioned. I sweat twice as hard in a spinning class, but when  my hips don’t shrink people will give me motivational speeches that I should push harder and harder next time. Bitch, please.

3. “You probably want a bigger size?”

Shopping with someone is the worst. The ‘no booty-army’ will always ask if you would like a size bigger than them. Just because my hip-to-butt-to-hip-to-another-butt ratio is above average, doesn’t mean the rest of my body is as well.

The looks I get when I tell people that I wear a size small top, the disbelief OMG, it’s just too much to handle.

Dear person X, I am a professional stylist, are you? Um, okurrr.

4. “You are going to fall pregnant so easily.”

I think this is the most offensive one. When you ask them why, they will tell you that skinny girls have more struggles to conceive. Okay, if I don’t count as skinny do you just think that I am fat?

Unless you are a medical professional, please don’t tell me about my future birth journey when so many people of all sizes have issues to conceive. Giving birth is a blessing and my pants size is not going to be the deal breaker, trust me.

5. “Are you on a diet?”

This is now the part where I want to get physical. Curvy ladies, have you ever ordered a salad and then your friends will ask if you if you are on a diet? People always consume when bootyful women order something healthy, they are trying to lose weight.

Okay, so here’s a surprise fact: we actually eat healthy most of the time. I hate greasy foods and alcohol. I avoid white carbs and always snack on carrots and yes, chocolate. Sue me, again.

But I’m not on a diet. Diets are for the birds!

My body is not my only testimony of my healthy lifestyle. I have glowing skin, perfect hair, 100% visual sight, no cholesterol warnings, zero dark circles under my eyes and I’ve never ever had a teeth filling in my life. Why? Because I’m healthy.

6. “How much?”

When a slender woman walks down the street in a skinny jean, little reaction.

When a curvy woman walks down the street in a skinny jean, chaos!

Society still see curvy women in short or tight clothing as ‘easy’ or ‘cheap’ and that annoys the living demons out of me. I rarely wear a bikini to the beach, but in January I felt brave and threw over a second skin dress to cover my lovely lady humps.

A group of men approached me and made sexual comments, which you get used to and learn to ignore over the years, but this time I’ve had enough. I told them my basic human rights and walked straight to the police station. They chose the wrong girl!

Stop judging people based on how God created them. We are all beautiful in our own way. Skinny, curvy, athletic -it doesn’t matter. It’s what is happening on the inside, that is.

Always, Anne
