Tired... geee no surprises there...

I'm really tired tonight and found it hard (insert Hubby bullied me out of the house - thank god) to get my arse down to the gym for 40 mins of cardio, but then while plodding along on the treadmill I realised that I had a bloody good reason to be tired!

This has nothing to do with getting ready for the comp, sure it would be easy to blame it on the way I eat, but I have been eating like this for ages now, sure it would be easy to say it is because I am down to around 7% body-fat so I have no fuel, but I am eating every three hours so there is fuel..

What I realised is that the reason I am buggered is this....

Its Friday, I have worked a full week, which included Monday cleaning vans and cars, I have trained and/or done cardio twice a day every day.

Tonight I came home from work and put the next load of rice on, put the dishes from breakfast away, threw my uniforms into the washing machine, ate my 4pm meal while doing all this, then vacuumed the whole house, dusted and polished all the furniture, hung out the washing, went and did the cardio, came home bagged up the rice and cooked the 8 meals needed to get me and hubby through tonight and tomorrow....

Damn it I am 49 years old in 20 days time, of course I'm friggin buggered... It has nothing to do with the comp!!!! I reckon any woman who works full time, does all the house work (ok Hubby, I don't have to pick up the dog poo from the back lawn) and cooking is buggered on a Friday night...

Of course the vast majority sit down with a wine, while I just sit here and whine LOL

Sooooo anyway..'

I have group posing at Kel's tomorrow morning..

Then I have to finish the paper mache' giraffe and hippo for my routine next week..... Ohhhh that's right this show doesn't have a routine so they are really for the ANB show on the 30th....

Ok, ok, I was just checking to see if you were actually reading this or just skimming... LOL

Ohhhh and I think it was really mean that the kitchen staff wouldn't let me lick the garlic bread they were serving in the Bistro today at work... I explained that I couldn't actually eat it but they still said no... what's with that???? how rude! LOL

Hope you all have a great weekend, and all you Mothers out there get what you deserve.. I will... hehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehe
