At work today we had a big sale. On days when we have a big sale we have to get to work early for a shared breakfast and coffee. The breakfast is always terrible; pies, sausage rolls, muffins, donuts. I would go on but I think you all get the idea. I had a coffee (soy mocha, yum yum) but did not have any of the breakfast. My workmates tried to peer pressure me into having some so I used the excuse that I have already had breakfast. When that didn't work they tried another tactic. I just said "I am enjoying eating a healthy diet and am doing well, so I will just have my coffee, thank you". They stopped. Thank goodness! I did end up snacking on a couple of small, solid chocolate eggs during the day because my lunch was delayed and I needed a sugar kick. I felt I had the freedom to do this because I had a healthy breakfast, so I don't feel bad about it.
I was able to go home around 3pm. I was actually dying. My workmates were discusted that I had to come in, but when I mentioned to my boss on Thursday that I wasn't well and enquired about having today off he said something along the lines of...well...no. No more. Next time I am sick I WILL be having the day off. I got home, watched some TV, sparked and let my mama take care of me. Hot lemon drinks and she is making my dinner. When you are sick you just want your mama!
Hot tea, water and a homoeopathic cold remedy. Lets hope I'm better tomorrow!!!!
