ZZZZZZZ

I can hardly keep my eyes open. I feel like I've had no sleep over the weekend, which of course is not the case. I'm also stuck on the bank reconciliation at work which I cannot balance and have been working on it the last three days. Ugh ! I'm about to throw it out the window but have to finish it today as December is our end of financial year, so all accounts have to be right by tomorrow.

My eating has been good, no exercise though, but I did paint out a bedroom for my mother on Saturday and my legs are soooo sore from getting up and down the ladder. On Sunday I took my daughter Alex out shopping to get a few essentials as she is going to Coffs Harbour for a week with a friend of hers.

I thought I would share this with you. Last week a lady I work with was offering everyone these chocolate biscuits, when I declined her offer she said rather loudly "Oh you can't have these can you" quick as anything I replied "I can have anything I want, I just don't choose to have them". You know it was a simple comment from me but I sure as hell felt good about it. I don't know why but it made me feel sort of empowered and in control.

It probably made you feel empowered because that woman was being a cow!! All she needed to do was go past and say ok or nothing!! WHAT A COW!!!
Good on you for sticking up for yourself.

I don't think missing the exercise is important considering the ladder work you have been doing.

Well done for refusing the biscuit I always find that part hard when others put it in front of you.

Exercise, is the key. Hence I do not have a key to the city. I am LAZY...the food part I can do ok (as long as nothing REALLY upsets me---I'm an emotional eater) but I HATE to exercise. I'd walk if I had a buddy to walk with....

Some folks feel personally rejected if you don't eat the food they offer. As if my dieting was some kind of personal attack against their cooking skills or food-buying choices.

Umm the whole--"Oh you can't have these" comment...

WHAT a BITCH.
