I've been back from my vacation for 4 days now and I feel like I might...finally....be getting on top of things here. The laundry is done, the house is tidy (if not very clean...yet) and I've paid the bills. I'm also catching up with my graphic design stuff (the evening job) and I've almost caught up with my investigations in the lab (the day job)...so yeah....life is plodding along nicely :)
I've started diet number 1,501 this week (well it must be at LEAST that number by now) and I have to say I'm feeling pretty low on energy right now. Normally after a few days I find that I have bag loads of energy, but all I have this time is heartburn, churning guts, a headache and bad breath. Sooooo not nice. Well, we'll see how things go when I weigh myself next week...presuming I'm still doing it by then. I hate diets, doesn't matter what the diet, I just find that its almost impossible to stick to it. And its not that I don't like diet-food, its more the food preparation side of things. I really hate cooking and after a long day at work I really really don't want to start cooking a meal...and I can't say I want to spend all of my weekend in the kitchen preparing stuff for in the week either. What I really need is a live-in housekeeper and chef....any offers?....anyone? One of my colleagues is having her birthday today and has brought donuts in...that will be hard. I don't really want to tell her I'm on a diet, but I don't really want to eat a full donut. Decisions.....decisions...oh heck, I need hubby here to eat half of it for me!
