The good, the bad and the ugly

Well for starters my Monday weigh in was really good, I was another kilo down so that means I have lost the 1.5kgs I gained in Melbourne plus a bit more and am now officially at my lightest weight this year, and possibly even my lightest weight in about 10 years. But I can't be sure about that because until this year I had a long standing tradition of not weighing myself. But all up that is something to be happy about, and it sadly concludes the "good" bit of the title.

On the opposite end of the scale we have had a totally shit week at work, I'm not going into details, mainly because I am so apathetic right now I just can't be fucked but the short story is that two people are being expected to do the work of about five, and we work 7 days per week between the two of us (Hubby and I) and haven't had a day off work together since April when our 83 year old Volunteer finally gave it up. So we're feeling slightly used, unappreciated and taken for granted and I had actually written my resignation letter with every intention of handing it in at the Board meeting this morning but hubby talked me out of it. That's the "bad" bit.

As for the "ugly", well on Wednesday nights I go to a craft group, so to make things easy, rather than the complication of cooking a meal we have what we call our "bitzer" night, that stands for "bits o' this and bits o' that" also know as GYFO: get your fucking own. Anyway to add to all the stress of the week, I was also majorly pre-menstrual and had spent the better part of yesterday afternoon bawling my eyes out, so when it came time for tea I couldn't be arsed and I ended up having two toasted ham and cheese sandwiches. I don't even want to allow my brain to calculate the carbs in 4 slices of bread! And to be honest I didn't even enjoy it, a ham and cheese toasted sanger doesn't taste anywhere near as good as I remember it tasting :(

So it's a big "woe is me" week.
