The alarm intrudes my dreams and I slowly raise my arm to switch it off. Maybe I souldn't have stayed up so late last night catching up with my blog. Luckily I am working from home today and I can loiter in my onesie until I feel human again.
I wander into the bathroom and follow my morning ritual and then go to weigh myself. Oh no ! The scales aren't working. They are digital and had been fading so I replace the battery but no, it still doesn't work. It is important to me to be able to weigh myself daily as it keeps me motivated and focused. I am worried because the calibration of different scales can mean a variation of a few pounds so I go for the same make and model.
Dismayed I wander downstairs and order a new one from Amazon for same day delivery. Isn't technology amazing ? I work in IT and I can remember in the 80s the IT Manager getting all excited and showing me a way that you could access university papers in America. I told him to stop wasting my time. He was showing me the beginning of the internet. Little did I know that it was going to have a profound affect on everybody's life.
I walk to Tesco at lunchtime to get my steps in and pick up courgettes and broccolli for the green fritters. I get home and realise I am going to be going out quite early and so have the mackerel with the cabbage salad sans avocado before I walk into town with my friend to attend a talk from Greek economist Yanis Varoufakis about Global inequality. It was a thought provoking debate and my friends and I go to a nearby pub to continue the discussion and I indulge in two glasses of wine.
I finish the evening dancing to work off the wine. When I get home the scales are there. I jump on and it looks like I've lost more weight but I won't know for sure until the morning.
