Success Is Sometimes An Awful Thing

I've had a couple of successes today - three in fact. And although I'm super pleased with all of them, I'm torn about the two. So let me start from the beginning. After my EPIC binge on Monday and a good day yesterday, I hopped on the scale this morning and lo-and-fucking-behold = 64.7kg. WHAT WHAT!? Anyway, so today I'm aiming for 800 - I've having some BBQ "chicken" nuggets for lunch (460) and a salad for dinner (220) and maybe some fruit. 

Second success of the day was that the job offer I got yesterday, the company agreed to pay me a higher salary - so basically, I successfully negotiated my basic up. Now, what makes this a hard success is that I then had my redundancy consultation this morning and my role is not being made redundant (third success), but that in the midst of people getting made redundant, I had to ask for them to match my offer from the other company or I'd resign. It's just such bad timing and I didn't mean for it to turn out this way, but c'est la vie. So they will let me know by the end of the day whether they will, which I doubt they will or I am resigning. So, sadness midst the success. I really hope that they can match it, but if they won't I will know exactly where I stand with the company - i.e. that they do not value me as a member of the company. So basically, it will be fine either way and I will have lots of new moneys to spend on cars and clothes and frivolous things! :)

ANYWAY, wish me luck?

Peace & Love
