#23 Hokey Pete..... who's got the magic wand?
Friday, April 26, 2013
This is support staff week where I work. Every day has involved a treat or gift for our support staff. Today was to be pie ala mode. I stopped by an orchard bakery near where I work, which has fresh fruit pies. I picked up a blueberry, an apple, a very berry and a dutch apple pie. The lovely lady behind the counter offered to help carry them to my car. I took the two berry pies, she had the two apple. As I went to open my car door to place them on my back seat I noticed the box was dripping some of the blueberry filling onto my tan leather seat. Yikes! Then I looked down - to discover the whole front of me was covered in blueberry filling, on my black coat, which was unbuttoned, on my brand new pink shirt, and it even dripped on my jeans! Holy crap. I asked the clerk if she had something I could clean it up with - of course it just made a bigger mess.... So back in my car, drive back across town, change my clothes, put things in the washer to soak, clean the car seat (no it did not stain), and start my day again - at 10:30. Not to mention the looks I was getting, like "Where have you been?" Ugh!
I hate having good intentions and watching they go up in smoke. I was angry and frustrated before I even got to work! Deep breath, let it go.....
The scale did not move today, but I somewhat expected that with this week of eating out, treats in the office, and little exercise. Needless to say, I wanted to kick it! Funny how sometimes I expect results without doing the work.
So I am officially starting the day over, right now. Reminding myself of what my goal is, and trying to stay/get back on track. It would be so much easier if someone would just wave their magic wand and make me thin! Somebody??? Please???
