My night !

I would love to tell you that this is how my night went
“Went to get the groceries after work and then came home and did some exercise. After which I cooked a lovely stir fry which we both thoroughly enjoyed before going to work. Worked until 1am with only 1 diet coke to drink. Then came home, had a shower and went to bed” - but I would be lying - that is only how I HOPED my evening would be !!!
It actually went like this
“Went to get the groceries after work and then came home and started to do some exercises. During this time, K had a shower and then said that as it was nearly 7pm could we please have a frozen dinner and have the stir fry tomorrow. I said that it wouldn’t be long until I cooked and that it wouldn’t take long but she didn’t want to wait as she was hungry. So off she went to heat up her frozen meal. After about 40 minutes of exercise - not nearly finished all that I wanted to do, Al Skyped me so I stopped the exercising because I would rather talk to him anyway. While I was talking to him (at 7.20pm) work phoned to see if I could start at 8pm instead of 9pm. So I landed up cutting short the conversation with Al, getting K to heat my frozen meal up and going and having a shower. Scoffed my dinner down so I had indigestion most of the night and took off for work. Got there and thought that I should probably buy something to eat as I didn’t think I would last until 1am with only 1 diet coke. So I bought a chocolate (which I have just remembered I left half eaten in the freezer !!!) and a diet pepsi. Then at about 11.30 we had a break and there were do-nuts provided. I would like to say that I only had 1 but that would be lying, I would really like to say that I only had 2 but that would also be lying because in the end I had 3 of them. But, I am at home, won’t be having anything else to eat and am off to shower and then bed”
All I can say is - thank goodness tomorrow is a new day !
Have a great day everyone and take care !

Don't be too worried Linda, you could have eaten the whole chocolate and the old you may have had more than 3 donuts.
I'm sure you'll compensate for and it and i'm sure you've already worked it into your points. It's very difficult to resist food that is put in front of us, but you always manage to compensate for it AND you always fess up, which is more than I do!!
Have a great weekend.

I love the narrative! Mmmm, choooccolaaaate.... drool!

I whole-heartedly agree with your comment yesterday about buying clothes, it is definately worth waiting until Goal as every kilo does make a difference once you get close. Even stuff I bought in my post-goal-celebration-spree is a little loose, and I wish I had tried on the next size down.

Damn, I really believed the first part too!
What a pain having to go early and unprepared. I am sure you worked hard enough to get rid of those donuts though.
Hope today is better.

It was not your fault linda. Those donuts were just trying to help you fill out youir baggie jeans...and they will not succeed because you exercised and will be extra good with your eating tomorrow. Your daughter is so like mine but I get asked..can't we just have baked beans instead of you cooking..or McD's. Very tempting when you are sooo busy and tired. Have a good day tomorrow and enjoy your stir fry.

You will be just fine after your little slip as this was out of your control. Work calling you in early shifted everything out of whack.

Chin up and back into it!!

Right. Give me the name and address of that saboteur who brought the donuts. They need to be dealt to lol.

I would toss out those size 12 jeans. Having things that are too loose on you can actually make you look bigger. It's also nice having things that fit you properly.

Hope your "new" day is going heaps better for you.

Have a great sunny weekend and smile heaps. Good for the soul.

I have had very similar day yesterday. You r day is so jam packed that when things don't go according to plan, you just give in a little or a lot. Don't be too hard on yourself though because yep, tomorrow is a new day!!

OOh I loved this entry.
I was in awe of the first version of events.....
And felt like the second 'true' version could have been a day out of my life.
Thanks for the honesty :)

Cheers P
