Pheww!

Pheww!! At long last, a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. My dissertation done with and submitted on time on Wednesday. I have promised myself that I'm not going to undertake any more research based studies for sometime. Exam based studies, I dont mind that much but research based seems to be so tasking. I'm just so glad its all over now. But thats not the end of studying - I still have to practice Microsoft Office Programs and Outlook to horn my office skills and enhance my employability. Got some assesments coming up pretty soon.



Walking through the supermarket, I looked mournfully at all those biscuits, chocolates, cakes and a variety of various goodies displayed on the shelves that are beyond my reach right now. And to think that they were mostly on reduced prices! I was just thinking to myself - all these stick thin celebrities probably dont get to enjoy all these things like me now cos they're always on one diet or the other to maintain their 8-10 stone weight and to test my veneer, I strolled mournfully down the chocolates and biscuits aisle looking longingly at all the goodies displayed there that I couldnt have and made it to the end of the ailse and out of the supermarket without picking any. LOL!!

Thanks for all your advice on my previous post. My face is back to normal now and I'm getting specialist advice on what products to use. I have joined a running club too and running more now. The days are ticking fast and its only 21 more days until my first race. Wish me luck!

  1. I am trying to cut out junk food myself,whenever i am tempted i just look at the calories count.I actually made a woman drop a chocolate pack by moaning about the calories,my friend was just laughing.

  4. best of luck babe!! and i'm glad your face cleared out oh!!

    meanwhile that walking down the aisle thing without the food, lol, do you know what i do? i pick up the food like i am going to pay, then walk a bit, drop it and pick another, and do that till i get to the end of the aisle, then end up not picking anything except maybe a bottle of water or a piece of fruit. lol. by the time i wear myself out trying to pick one.

  19. CG, I am so happy to hear that your face has cleared up. And for your "temptations" it is torture. I love chocolate I would die if I couldn't get to eat it. I am taking that statement literally. (smile)
