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.

Thursday, December 11, 2008


I hobbled around the office like I was 100 years old today - but it did force me to drink more water (in the hope that it would help flush out the lactic acid in my poor legs). I have to say though, that I did enjoy the stairs, and today... I did it again.

18 steps between floors x 26 floors = 468 steps. I felt every one of them. So did my calves, my quads and my butt(s).

I did get to the gym, but I skipped my leg weights. I didn't know if I would be able to finish then AND walk home after. As it was I shuffled home at half pace - but I did it. Victory!

10min elliptical warm up
Lat pull downs - 70 x10, 2s 100 x 6r, 2s 90 x 6r
bicep curls - 17.5 x 10, 2s 20 x 6r, 2s 22.5 x 6r
military press - 5s 22.5 x 6r
chest press - 5s 22.5 x 6r
abs x ball work.

Tonight's dinner was veggie frittata. 1 egg, 1/3c egg whites, red onion, asparagus, spinach, deli chicken breast and feta cheese on top. One grilled whole wheat wrap and 1/2c hot salsa. It was tastier then it looks! :)

Dessert tonight is cashew/macadamia nutbutter with my Strawberry & Grand Marnier jam (yes...its as lush as it sounds) rolled in a wrap and a 1/4c cottage cheese.

Bed early tonight. I'm totally beat.

Awesome! Legs of steel! I can relate to the shuffle. After riding my bike today I wasn't sure I had the strength to get off the seat!!

Dinner sounds delish. I would like to know more about the strawberry spread. :)

You are doing great with the weights, girl. You are strong!
I agree with Tena, dinner looks delicious!
I asked my bodybuilder friend if doing squats, lunges and walking the stairs was enough of a lower body workout and he said....pfffft more than enough! I think he's pretty impressed with me :)
I'm impressed with you, Tamzin! You're kicking butt, baby!
