fatties, fish and chips
Last night I was catching up on some reading over at Adventures of Born Again Gym Bunny and she had a link to a forum about fattism - employers discriminating against fat people. Now whether this is true or not, is not my main concern.. my concern are the comments by the general public and the way they see fat people. I was disgusted and so offended by these comments! I always knew that 'people' dont look kindly towards the fat, but I didnt realise some thought all we do is sit on the couch, eating burger after burger. Gorging was a word used regularly. Yes, I binge occasionally, yes I dont always make the right choices, yes I dont exercise as much as I should... but god damn it, it doesnt make me a lesser human being. (After reading as much of that forum as I could handle.. I did have a shower, wash my hair, fake tan my legs and gave myself a manicure... unkept fatty? I dont think so!)
But anyway.. I'm feeling great today. The boy and I have a gym date tomorrow, a little quality time together on the treadmill. Ha ha, My eating has been pretty good.. besides the battered fish I ate yesterday... I wasnt planning on eating battered fish. One of the girls at work suggested we get fish and chips for lunch... and we all came to the conclusion that we should get grilled fish, chips and salad. I was very happy with this.. but the fish came back battered! The fish shop near by only did fried fish.. so what was I meant to do? I ate a whole heap of salad, all my battered fish and a few chips. Afterwards, I thought I just should have picked the batter off the fish... but I really didnt think of it at the time. By the way, the fish tasted like crap and left my mouth coated in fat all afternoon.
And nicole, this was a fabulous question! You had me thinking for a long time about when our official wedding anniversary will be... especially since I wont be receiving my wedding band until Turkey (mainly because I want Turkish gold, secondly so the Turkish wedding seems more real) I say we celebrate the Sydney and the Turkish wedding anniversary! But the official date will be the first Sydney wedding, December 17th.
I hope youre all well and happy!
