Sardines, taxes, and steaks!

My mom read that sardines were the healthiest fish you can eat. They contain the least amount of toxins and are full of wonderful vitamins and minerals. They are a low carb dieter's dream come true food.

In other news...

Today I sit down with my taxes. Being an independent contractor makes this a stressful event. I should be doing this as I go along, but no. Each year I end up doing all my taxes on one or two days rather than logging my income and expenses as they happen. AACH! I know once I'm done I will feel so much better, and I should (I hope) be getting a refund so with that and the money I've not touched from last year's expenses, I can wipe out a load of debt in one fell swoop.

I'm sore from working out and tomorrow is weigh in day. I'm going to skip today's workout and do a steak day. Hoping for the best tomorrow. I hate how nervous I am about it.

OKAY, one more cup of coffee, I need to email my buyer, call my mother, and then it is TAX TIME.

Hope you're all well!!

Hi, Clarity! Hope taxes go well- and I completely understand your pain. :)

Anyway, I had a couple questions for you since your post on two different places to get HCG- I am interested in the one from Switzerland, but I have been told before that buying from foreign suppliers is not a good idea? I suppose this is just in reference to the ones that are bad? :) Anyway, and I am also admitting I am completely clueless when it comes to the product- can you tell me what the Corion 5000 iu means? Is it injectable? And how long would it last? Okay... I think that is all of my questions. :) Thank you so much for helping me out!

I love your new hair color, too btw! Can't wait to get another round going! Oh, yeah and about how long does it take to ship- if you know... :)

Ewww on the sradines.... think I will skip them, healthy though they may be! :)

My husband owns his own business too, and he says the same thing every year - should have done it every month. But no, he just waits as well!! Funny guy. And being able to wipe out some debt on top opf that will be awesome!

Good luck on your steak day!

Good luck on your taxes! You will feel SO good when you have all your paperwork in order, and the whole process is behind you.

Can't say I'm going to try sardines, but Mr. ld LOVES them-

Can't wait to hear the results of your steak day, and how your weigh-in goes!!
