Not going to the gym.Supermarket prices creeping up for Christmas Holiday. Still on 5.2 Diet on the second starving day!

I've never kept a diary or journal. Not a complete one. The last complete one was when I was about 15 years old and was only because everyone else was keeping on. You know the whole 'teenage secret dairy' with lots of hearts with hidden crushes and stuff.

So this is kinda something new. Anywho. Went to work and it was so so. Deadlines coming up. Then I'm on the 2nd of 2 day of 5.2 diet. I'm sure I eat way more than what is allowed. Anyway I had some pititful fruit salad for breakfast. Got that from Sainsburys. Then some bean salad which I had with jacket potato. Got into the whole 'exercise vs diet' debate.

My colleague also gave good advice about shopping online. She's addicted to special offers so says shopping on-line cuts it out. I know that when I used to go to weight watchers, yeah, I did, the leader suggested that helped too.

I dislike exercise  and I know this is fad but so is exercising. I start with an expensive gym membership - which by the way I still have - joined about this time last year. I go a few times then quit. Okay I frequently go for hydropool and steam. Maybe a run now and again but nothing to justify the amount spent on membership.

My boss who is super fit. I mean super fit, says I should walk more. I tend to take the bus to and fro to the train station, she does a brisk walk, swimming and spinning. And other stuff. She's super fit. I once did the gym for a week running but fell out of the routine. I have lots of excuses so no point listing them here. Just fair enough to say, I'm not a gym bunny.

Stayed a bit late and was starving so I had a tinned of sweetcorn, I'd stashed away in the office kitchen cupboard a while ago. I meant to have it with tuna but never got round to opening it.

Came back home. Nothing interesting apart from stupid people who never move down the train carriage. They like to hang at the doors. The most annoying thing is because of these dipsticks I miss out on a seat. Some one who comes in from another door naps the seat before I do. Another grip is when people start getting fidgety or shifty or packing their stuff together before a stop. Normally a sign they are going to get off so I can have a seat. Not. They are people who just do that for the stake of doing it. Annoying.

Still starving I went to my local supermarket to get something to eat. Ended up buying some mangos which have increased by from £2.50 to £2.75. Supermarket prices are creeping up for Christmas. In the Britain the most expensive time to go food shopping is Christmas Eve. Around now everyone starts to slowly hike up prices or do those Christmas specials. Which reminds me my colleague is looking forward to Black Friday shopping. Not that we have that here in the UK, but he's taken off the day. Last year it was a big thing so maybe he'll get a plasma screen for a tenner.


 I actually went to the supermarket for some Edmame beans but they still didn't have any. Got some grapes too. I know out of season but it's either that it breaking this day on some chocolate or huge chunk of bread and better.

My critique partner finished my last chapter with great suggestions. She's been so supportive and had really kept up my motivation and morale when writing this novel. It's nice when it's not just family reading stuff.

So I'm thinking of making into a series and a few spin offs. We'll see. I'm pondering over some so probably might write those at some point, maybe even before releasing this one.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Searching for office christmas party venue, celebrating Momma AG birthday.

Rang to sing Momma A G happy birthday! Got to work early and did some of my goal work. Also Accounting Guru Boss showed me an easy way of planning. She is a genius. It's that simple so I'm going to practice her method of planning.  I must say I've learn plenty. Working with her is like one long professional master class with private tuition.  Glamorous colleague also gave me tips on completing a goal related task. All tasks are like elephants tackle the largest on in the morning. Red Jumper colleague took the day off for Black Friday. Apparently he's waking up at early to go on the internet looking for deals after which he'll go to the shopping centre. Told him I was going to wait until boxing day to get a new purse. Then after all the excitement he was like 'What am I going to do on Cyber Monday." Glamorous and I went looking for some where for our team christmas lunch. She wasn't having us eat in a pub. She has high standards. She was okay abo

Daily Writing Journal - #6 my urban lit African American romance. Went Christmas Shopping in House of Fraser and John Lewis.

Not much going. Well, it's Christmas! I went shopping yesterday after work to get some presents. I still have plenty more. House of Fraser is a good place to go. I feel it misses a lot of traffic because it's in between John Lewis and Debenhams.  I'm talking about departmental stores on Oxford Street, London. Okay let's talk about writing. Or maybe not. It's the festive season. In John Lewis , they also had the Elton John Experience. That was nice. I feel compelled to show some pictures but that means downloading all the pictures in my phone. I'll get more organised about this as I go along. Then again this is just a journal of my writing. So writing, well I said I'd skip that but I did manage to write another synopsis. What do you think? Synopsis Angelica Washington is a strong woman takes family responsibility seriously, but things aren't always as perfect as they seem .  A bad family ordeal and an impulsive urge leads her to the arms of a h
