I've always preferred a cup of soothing jasmine tea

Don't worry, I've brought the tea. I think everyone can find their favourite now:

I really want to grump about the fact that there's no coffee here, but I'm supposed to be cutting back on it for my challenge anyway so I suppose that defeats the point, doesn't it?

Love the smell of coffee, hate the taste.  Every coffee drinker I've ever known has decided that this is because I've never had "Real Coffee™" before.  Nope, had all kinds of coffee, don't like any of it.

Ugh, me too! Smells fantastic, tastes like crap. But people always try to argue with me. Everyone thinks their brand of coffee will be the magical special one that changes my mind. Just stop it, people. I like tea.

There are definitely differences in taste between kinds of coffee but yeah, if you don't like it it's not exactly worth it. I've been drinking coffee for 15 years and I'm starting to hate it now. If it weren't for the caffeine dependence I probably would have given up on it long ago.

Ouch. Yeah that's a good reason. 

 

Aaaand now I want cookies. I don't have any, which is great. Except for the part where I want them.

I have yet to find a suitable replacement for my desire for cookies.  Nothing else quite does the same thing for me.  So instead I resort to misery and the classic googling pictures of delicious cookies to torment myself even more of course.

I feel like I read somewhere that looking at pictures makes it better? Like you don't crave them as much or something? I also feel like that's a lie because when I see pictures of delicious food all I want to do is eat it.

Yep, I've never experienced even an ounce of feeling better when looking at pictures of tasty things.  I just want to eat it more.  It's like grocery shopping when you're hungry, you really shouldn't do it but sometimes you just can't stop yourself.  Then before you know it you're in the fetal position in the bottom of a freezer clutching a pint of Ben and Jerry's in one hand and a bag of M&Ms in the other.  It's a dangerous spiral.

Ah cravings for crap. I just recently got off sugar junk food. It's easier now, but seeing it - like anywhere - can be really hard, especially when my mouth waters!!

 

How are folks feeling going into the weekend? 

My Saturday will be tough - lots of driving and meeting new clients for lunch.

I also start my new gig with a dog and 3 cats. I've been there a few times now and really love it. But, it's not home.

Have a great weekend, everyone!!

Not bad going into the weekend, not bad.  It's a fun experiment if nothing else for me, learning to set my pace a little slower.  I've been needing to do that for about a decade now.  But not forseeing any problems, which is the most important part for me.

 

Sweets are rarely an issue for me, but when I get the cravings I get them bad.  Savoury has always been my downfall.  Walking past a pie shop can be a real chore some days.

That pie looks amazing.

 

My weekend isn't the most fun. Had to go to a 4th birthday party at the park for the daughter of one of the fiancee's girlfriends. Yay for anxiety and meeting people I've never met in a place I've never been to! Fortunately there were other small children, so I took my little boy and became the designated baby sitter. Avoided the panic attack by supervising toddler races on the slides.

 

And tomorrow I have to go and visit the grandmother in law. And that woman is a serious bitch. Queue suppressing the imminent panic attack for the afternoon...

 

Sigh, rant over. Hope everyone else has an awesome weekend! :)
