Another weekend gone

Where do the days go to - I can’t believe it is Monday tomorrow and back to work already. It does mean that we are another two sleeps closer to Al coming home and for that, I am grateful.
We had a good day today - didn’t do any clothes shopping (for a change I hear some of you say !!!!!) - got up this morning and we went for a 1hr 20 minute walk - the weather was just gorgeous as spring days on the Gold Coast can be. We came home and sat in the sun for a little while reading our books. Then we went and got some groceries which I had forgotten to get yesterday and came home again.
Mom and Dad came over for dinner and I did their tax returns. We had soup and tiger loaf bread and then some strawberries for dessert. I haven’t had a very good day food wise - last night I sat up and read and ate nearly a box of Cheese Straws - they are just the most delicious savoury biscuits I have ever eaten. Needless to say I didn’t finish the box (only just !), but K and I did finish the box today (not that there were very many left after last night !!!). On Friday I bought 3 packets of the Mars Lite Bars - don’t know why I did that because while my intentions are good - the execution of those intentions are not that wonderful !!! I bought them thinking that I could have 1 when I am craving some chocolate or something sweet - yeah right !!! Like I can stop at 1 ???? So, have just polished off another 2 after the ‘I don’t know how many’ I had last night. But, now that I have confessed to it - maybe I can move on to another day with another chance to learn at how to say no to the voice in my head saying “Go on - have another 1 (or 2 or 3 or 4) - they are only worth 1 point each and it isn’t as though you are eating a whole chocolate” Maybe it isn’t a whole chocolate but eating about 10 over the weekend certainly does add up !!!!!
Oh yes, just remembered that Katilin and I shared a Whip bar when we went grocery shopping this afternoon - better whack another 4 points onto my sugar total for the week !!!!
I did our tax returns but they don’t look right and I think that it is because I am so tired I am not thinking too clearly so will leave them until Tuesday night when I will have another look at them. I have just finished the last load of washing and need to go and put it in the dryer.
Thank goodness tomorrow is the start of a new week - hopefully I can get my head into the right place because it is definitely not in the place where it is supposed to be right now.
Take care everyone and have a great day !

I reckon someone need to invent a time delayed vault that only dispenses 1 mini mars bar lite at a time at 48 hour intervals. This would save on a world of hurt!!!

You sound like you are missing Al way more than you did on the last trip. Maybe you are emotionally eating because of this. Just a thought. Take care - not long to go now. XX

I reckon there's a day stealer and I want to find them and get back our days! But of course, Al will be sooner home :-)

I still can't buy chocolate/junk. I did last Thursday because I felt I could now that I'm on maintenance BUT I ate the whole block in one sitting! Go figure. Bad habits never die so you just have to avoid them. Well I have to LOL.

No wonder your head is a bit whacko too with all that choc you've been eating and you mixed it with doing taxes!!?? Crazy woman, real crazy :-P

I hope you are having a great Monday.

That chocolate is just so darn tempting. I have the same problem if I buy packets, just cannot stop at 1. Sounds like you had a lovely weekend.
