Oh dear. I blew today's challenge. I spent money for lunch. Well, not for lunch, but rather for dessert. K and I walked over to a camera store on our lunch break and on the way back she asked that we stop at a dessert house. I wasn't going to buy anything, but my tastebuds got the best of me and I bought a dessert for $2.75. I don't know what the name of it was, but I call it the lemon smoosh. So, I did feel guilty, even though it was delicious.

But, no falling off the bandwagon for me! I've already got lunch planned tomorrow. The best part about working at a Subway is the abundance of freshly cut veggies, meats and sauces that I am free to take with me. So I still get a fast-food fix by taking in a leftover sandwich to lunch. Plus I got some red onion slices (yum yum!) to add to my tuna wrap tomorrow.

In other news, I've managed to catch a cold. I had a bit of a sore throat last night, and when I work up this morning, it was full-blown cold! Last time I was sick I was in NYC and I got hit just as fast. So, after work I promptly hurried over to Zeller's and bought some cold medication - you don't want the person making your sandwich to be all snotty-ish. I also picked up some ColdFX on a whim - some people I know seem to swear by the stuff, I personally am sceptical of it - but I figured i'd give it a try.

I bought a three day supply, costing me approximately $12. The first day (today) I am to take three pills two times a day. Tomorrow I take two pills twice a day, and then the third day I'm down to one pill twice a day. Supposedly these things are supposed to build my immune system - so we'll see how it works out. It'd be great if it did, I have plans to meet with some hilarious friends on friday and I don't want to make them (or their children!) sick.

I am also now only waiting on one final paycheque. The last office-job cheque got cleared today, and it was off to the savings account. I am looking forward to doing (my first!) month summary!

As well, I had 28 people visit this site today (well, yesterday now...it's 12:12 a.m. here)! I am getting visitors from all sorts of blogs. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who stops and comments and reads - you guys are awesome and I'm so glad to be with your on this blogging adventure! I've had some new people link to me, and I'll have to do some updating on my blogroll! If by chance I forget you, leave me a comment!

Take it easy!

Oh I hope you feel better soon! I'm intrigued about the Cold FX stuff too, so let us know how it works.

Man, you get to have some stuff from work, for free??? Talk about a great perk!!

And don't feel too bad about dessert, there's not many of us who could have resisted if we'd been in an actual restaurant. Taste buds and all yep!
