So yeah, I hate my life and...

No, not really. My boiled eggs didn't turn out right, and my cheese stuffed mushrooms were soggy, but otherwise, cooking wise, things are ok. For lunch today I had two thirds of a red pepper, sliced, some ham and some eggs. It was ok, but I was looking at the sweets thinking, "I want you so bad!"

Yesterday was worse. Girly TMI things started, and it was raining, and I was just generally feeling like crap so all I wanted was something sweet. Seriously, if it wasn't for Ruth standing next to me saying, "No, don't. You'll feel like shit and if you can't quit now when will you?" and things like that, I would now be crying my eyes out after gorging myself on a pack of five doughnuts, filled with jam and covered in sugar.

As it is, I bought eggs.

And I boiled them. The yellows are still runny though (which, when used as a dunking sauce for red pepper slices wrapped in a bit of ham, is really nice)... I might boil more tonight and leave them in longer.

And I will wake up early enough tomorrow to eat breakfast. I know, I'm so bad. I should eat brekkie. Oh! I've just figured out what I need to do - cook the chicken breasts I have so I can have chicken mayo for lunch tomorrow... Maybe. Hmm.

In other news, next week I'll be doing two days work in my hometown! Yipee!! XD I've not worked in my old shop for three months at least... Ironically, it was only a few days ago I told my old co-worker that I couldn't work there again. She's left, which is why I'm helping out by covering for a few days. :)

Mark and I are thinking of going away for a few days around his birthday, but he's a bit uncertain about work, and to be honest, so am I (mostly cause one said, "OMFG we wanted you to work the day in between the two days you've taken off!" and the other has now said, "Meh, it's your holiday, we'll work around it!"), but I really wanna do this. We're thinking of going to Bath one day, then the next day go down to Stonehenge, then travel home on the third day. But... yeah. I think I should just bite the bullet and book. Hmm.

So yeah, gonna go to bed. I'll wake up to make food in the morning. Ugh. Hate mornings! Cannot wait to do the few days in Lampy! Wake up at half eight to be in for half nine. :D

Oh! And a friend of mine has started her own sort of jewellery line on Facebook, and she's made dangly battenburg earrings! Guess who's bought a pair?! :D Oh yeah! Getting them Wednesday! (In time for my birthday Thursday! XD)

You'll get through; the first weeks are usually the worst! If you've eaten a lot of sweets, bread and pasta earlier then this is an addiction and your body is craving it physically, which can definitely be hard to control mentally.

Eat much of the "good" food, try to stay full and don't fret over breakfast. I sometimes skip it, since I eat what I need the day before, have a cup of tea with cream and then eat around lunchtime. My body likes it, I don't feel hungry, so why stuff it? However, if skipping breakfast leads to eating sweets before lunch, then yes you need breakfast.

Also; I hate when the eggs aren't cook how I want them to be; as hard-boiled as possible, no runny yellows but still a dark yellow colour on it. Mmmm.

I think the first weeks with any addiction are the worst! XD

I normally like runny middle eggs, but I got yellow down my uniform and didn't get a chance to wash it so I didn't wear it today and got a bit of a side eye from my boss because of it. So I've gone off them a bit now! :)

Not eating sweets is hard, but I'm getting through it! I will lose this weight (although, I haven't really weighed myself yet, so I think that's what I'm gonna do tomorrow morning, that way I have some idea of what's happening).
