On Friday night my sister and I had to wait around for a tram to the city so we browsed through some of the local shops. I found a dress I loved – red with white polka dots – and decided I’d go try it on later this week when I got paid.
Today, on my way home from the city, I couldn’t wait. I went in and tried it on. It is the most fantastic dress and I fell totally and utterly in love with. Since I have no cash, I popped it on layby. No one else is getting their grubby paws on MY dress. I can’t wait until payday now.
The rest of Friday night rapidly descended into debauchery. We went to see a friend who works at a bar in the city and the shooters flowed freely, in all senses of the word. The rest of this week, I’ll be in damage control mode. I don’t want to think how many calories can be packed into one of those tiny glasses.
ps. I went back to the gym today for the first time in over a week. I only did a half hour hill run on the treadie at a slighly lower intensity than I normally use. I thought about doing some weights as well but figured it was better to leave feeling like I could have done more than getting all sick again. I ended up walking most of the way home afterwards so I had a pretty good workout.
I don’t know when I’ll get back in there again – I have dinner with my sisters tomorrow, writing class on Tuesday plus I have to do some extra work at a second job this week. I might try for some morning sessions or walk to work to make sure I’m burning some calories.
I need to get to goal – I have the complete Buffy collection to buy!
