Thank you for stopping by to perv on my blog, as I fight myself to change my old habits and make new ones to get fit. I don't get it right all the time, but I'm still here and I'm still working at it.

Tamzins Double Dog Dare You Ticker!

My homage to the 14lbs that I lost on Allan’s DDDY Challenges. A watering can for the vast oceans of water that I have learned to drink and love every day.

and a bowl full of jelly

I don't know if clean eating includes NyQuil, but I hope to hell it does since that's what I've been living on for the last five days.

I'm guilty *Holds hand up* yes, me. Guilty of not making better plans to eat better, guilty of thinking that I could "manage okay" without setting limits, guilty of not bothering to care enough to do better over the holidays.

I did some good things. This is the first Christmas that:
- I ate good snacks before heading out to visit family/friends
- I did NOT have seconds after I finished what was on my plate.
- I ate a good breakfast every morning
- I only had milk and not cream in my coffee

Other then that, I kept some of my better eating plan in mind, but in my hurry to: leave, pack, get gifts, wrap everything, I failed to plan for me. Which is really the heart of the matter in my main struggles here. I seem to be putting the very thing that is going to help me the most to the very end of the list of things that "need" to get done.

So for Christmas, I gave myself a gift. The gift is that I will put myself and my weight goals first in my life.

Regardless of my lack of inspiring success, I've had a quick peek around on here and there are plenty of people that have been amazing over the holidays and I thank you all for continuing to post and keep us all honest! :D


Holy bloggers batman!!! 22 followers!! WHOOOOOHOOO *WAVES TO ALL* Hi and welcome and I really thank you all for tagging on and giving me another great reason to stay honest and post lots!

Okay, that's all I have in me tonight, was another day of crazy winter traveling. Back to work tomorrow and some more perving on blogs while I'm one of the only people in the office (skeleton crew of staff required this week = time to spend on blogs while nothing is going on).

Sorry you've been sick. I've been sick this last week, too. I blame the sugar!

Good for you on making some changes. In time, I believe healthy choices will become good habits!

I left a comment from my food blog...but I meant to leave a comment from my family blog...that's the one where I will be writing down my rants from my diet...HA! I will try to also list my recipes on my food blog, I share that with another gal and she has alot of fattening things. So Jaime and Dish comment is actually from My crazy crazy life...uhhh, sounds like to much info.

Making us and our weight loss a top priority is the only way we'll succeed! I've changed my whole schedule and routine around so that I CAN make it a priority. I have to or I'll gain it all back like I did before.

Hope you feel better!!!

Happy Weight Loss,

Linda ;)
