YAY for Friday !

Thanks so much to everyone for your support – it has been a big help to keep me going.
Just when I thought most of the problems at Coles were resolved, some more have reared their ugly heads BUT at the moment, nothing has been finalised. I said to Al this morning when we were talking after work, that I would try to put it in the “Worry about it when it happens” basket and leave it there until I need to spend energy worrying about it !!!
I managed to curb my sweet tooth until I got home this morning when I gave in and had an apple and cinnamon WW frozen dessert at 1am !!!! Yesterday I had to pick up some groceries at lunch time and had to wait an absolute age in the queue – they had the big specials stand with the new triple decker mint chocolate – 250g – can’t even remember the price not that that would have put me off buying it anyway, right next to the check out queue !!! I stood there for ages having the “Should I or shouldn’t I” conversation, but you all chipped in and said I shouldn’t so I didn’t and now I can (still fit into my jeans) !!!!
We have a couple of things planned for the weekend – muffins in the morning (of course !)and then off to see the musical in the afternoon. I have to get our tax returns done – thought that they had to be done by end of October but now realise that it is the end of September which is the deadline so will have to get moving on those. They are really of the “Not much money in, paid this amount of tax out of not much coming in and please don’t ask me for any more because there isn’t any” kind of returns – it’s just the pain of having to do them at all !!
Of course not working Saturday night is good – don’t know what we will be doing – maybe get in some DVD’s to watch. I really need to get stuck into the weeds – the trouble is that my back has been reasonably good recently and I don’t want to jinx it by weeding – maybe that is just an excuse not to weed !!!! Will see how I feel tomorrow.
I want to try to sit down and do something similar to what Emily did to see just how far I have come and how my choices / habits have changed since I started my journey this time – that may help to re-inforce why I will be able to maintain – worth a try anyway.
Have a great weekend everyone – hope that the weather is good for you. If it stays the way it has been for the past couple of days I am sure that we will get some walking and some cycling done – maybe I will even try to find some togs that fit and work on getting rid of these lily white legs !!!!

Well done for resisting the triple-decker!!!

I definately recommend my "list", its brilliant to see exactly how far you've come :-)

BTW, I hate weeding too, its a bastard of a job, especially when its been about 9 months since you last did it! Lol, guess what awaits me this weekend if its not too wet!

Well done on resisting temptation. Show's just how far you have come in your change of lifestyle.

I love getting out in the garden but I just don't get enought time. My herbs are still growing which is something all except for the basil which Jake stood on and squashed while playing cricket in our backyard!!! Actually that's something I have to do this weekend - buy a replacement. XX

Don't you just hate those temptations at the checkouts! Thankfully there were light mars bars on special at mine today. Well done on resisting at yours. Have a great weekend.

Yay that we both bought mini light mars bars for the freezer! I had the same thought as you - hope I can just stop at one each day! (one mini bar I mean, not one bag) LOL, I am sure we will be OK.

I like the "worry about it when you need to". If you can do something about it straight away great, if you can't..put it in the diary for when you can and forget about it until then.

Hehe...I can just imagine you standing in the queue next to the triple decker mint chocolate! That's why I shop online now for most things LOL :-)

Can't wait to see your habit changing list and your TFTD for the day is great. I wish I could knock that into a few people I know hey.

I hope you have/had a great time at the musical and a great weekend matey! xx

I love the TIAGF today. Yes, we can make choices and we should be bloody grateful for that. There are plenty of people on our little planet that can't make any choices. We at least have that one freedom. Thanks for that Linda, sent my day in a new direction. Ciao xxxx
