FIGURING OUT THE FIFTIES.... SO THIS IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT.......

Saturday, 29 August 2009

So its the weekend...

Friday was Friday... Up at 4am at the gym by 4.45am..Back & Biceps & Cardio done and home at 6.15. Inhaled my Eggy oats and got ready for Sucky Job.

Got through sucky job and actually had a win! Standing in the coffee shop for afternoon coffee and Boss decided to do the usual afternoon hassle again about the cakes on display, this time in front of the visiting accountant...

"Ohhh Loooook Cath, they have lots of new cakes... bet you would love that one.."

"Nope.. actually doesn't look very nice at all..."

Boss to Accountant..."Cath can not eat anything down here... she would looooove to but she is doing this comp thingy... so she misses out on all the good stuff"

Accountant.. "Really??? That's Great!.. I used to do martial arts so I know how tough it is to stay under a certain weight.. glad I don't have to do that anymore, but good on you!"

hehehehehehehehehehehe I now looooove our accountant, she is great too LOL

There was a good band at the club last night so we headed back down there after I did Abs and had dinner... Ok, so I say how much I hate my uniform, I say it is saggy and baggy and hideous... You may think I am exaggerating... Last night I wore one of my new dresses and spoke to a workmate who I see all the time, she actually works in the office next to me.. She did a double take and then realised who I was and we had a chat about my tattoos... Then when we were leaving another workmates (who I see EVERYDAY at morning and afternoon tea and during work hours is right next to me) Came rushing up to tell me that she saw Hubby and wondered who the woman he had with him was....... She was totally gobsmacked... yep saggy baggy uniform is definitely doing it's job...

This morning my brain woke at 4am even though I didn't need to be up till 6am... sigh! weighed myself and I have dropped 1.1kg since Wednesday... I think the scales are messing with my head so I am ignoring them ill Wednesday again...Went and did Hammies and Abs... Now I have had my eggy oats and my Roo, sweet potato and broccoli and Hubby is back from work and we are off to lie in the windy sunshine...

Have a good weekend...

hehehe-yes-the scales suck..and the calipers too....!
and damn that internal clock to absolute hell! I would if I could too-damn it! :-)
The best thing that I have found to work though-and I use this the ENTIRE time I'm in the states..eye blinders!!!!OMG-it sooooooo f'in works! When I go to Oregon and California-I'm there in the summer...and the sun starts showin' itself at like 4:00am...I kid you not!!! So...I get up-go to the bathroom-and then put those darn blinders on and go back to sleep...Works EVERY time!!!! For at least 2-3 more hours. I worship those blinders...really-I do!

I understand the food bit. I had dinner with my boy tonight we went to one of our fav rests. They have Tapas as well as other dishes - the food is widely Morrocan based -but I make a better Tagine. We ordered 5 tapas 'tween 2 of us, I know they weren't that big, but that apparently wasn't enough. But Mr S being a healthy bugger said that's enough for now. Oh I forgot he had a dip thing with pita bread before I had a taste with a bit of pita.

Yes there was wine, I had 2 half glasses, I was driving S loves that after being out bush.

After what we had I was full, but S being a healthy sweet tooth wanted dessert. No probs, he works it off every week, I wasn't even interested in looking at the menu -I was full. But I'm aparently wierd - don't you just want to look - Nope, going to the loo. I'll just have a diet coke - I was driving.

Boy loved it as he had been out bush all week eating camp food, but he runs, swims etc. So good on him. People don't seem to understand I just don't like or want dessert or more! I suppose coz I'm still overweight so I must eat crap. Whatever.... Sorry long post, Cath
