Ode of Remeberance
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
Thank you to all our servicemen and women who gave their lives in the past, and those who continue to risk their lives now.
Thank you to my Poppa, who passed 10 years ago, for his service in Korea (Unfortunatly this is the best photo I have of him on my computer, because he died before digital cameras. I have a lot of photos of him in photo albums though)
Thank you to my Grandad, who I treasure, for his service in WWII
Thank you to my Great Grandfather, for giving his life is WWII
Thank you to my father, for his continued service in the NZ military

It is when the scale co-operates, anyway! I am back to weighing myelf daily, or at least most days. I like to know exactly where I am at, and waiting all week is annoying for me.
So I stepped on the scale this morning and found another kilo was gone. That brings me to 1.4kg in 8 days. I did have an upwards spike a couple of days ago, which I didn't record or pay attention to because I was hoping something like this would happen!
I am still sick, but feeling much better. I am going to take today as another rest day and start exercising again tomorrow. Today I am going to spend time with my boyfriend and attempt to complete an assignment. Wish me luck!!

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!!!!

Hmmmm so last night I indulged a bit and had chinese food for dinner. It was salty and delicious. Just for interests sake I weighed myself this morning. I had lost weight, 300g to be exact! Ummm? Ok! I'll take it. No asking questions, just go with it!
In other news I have to go to work today. Which sucks because I am really sick. I was told there was no way I could call in sick today so I have to go in. BUT I will be telling my boss to send me home asap because I am sick and gross and no one wants to buy jewellery off someone who has a fountain on their face.
Argh, until next time!
