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.

Tuesday Struggles

Walking home tonight I was thinking about what I was going to blog about, and I had this huge laundry list crappy things that are making my life so hard ... ... I had to work late, had lots of ugly friend drama over email all day, slept poorly last night and ate 2 cookies after lunch... I was going to give up and go home instead of go to the gym because, you know... lifes' been kicking me, so I should just curl up in a ball, right?

Halfway home I realized that these are just reasons that I use to keep me from looking after my body and myself the way that I should.

But I changed my mind, chatting with the hubby on the phone I told him to tell me to get my butt in the gym. He did, and so I did. :) And it was good.

I did 10 HARD minutes on the elliptical and got sweaty.
Leg press - 215 x 10, 6s 315 x 6r
Calf press - 215 x 10, 6s 315 x 6r
Ham curls - 85 x 10, 6s 115 x 6r
Leg extension - 85 x 10, 6s x 100 x 6r
Lat pull downs - 70 x 10, 1s 100 x 6r, 3s 100 x6r
Bicep curls - 6s x 20 x6r

I didn't do all my usual weights, but I was exhausted. I ended up walking home, even though I didn't plan on it. It was pretty nice out actually, so I'm glad I missed the bus.

Dinner tonight was a mix of crazy things from the fridge that needed eating.

First up - two whole wheat wraps with 1 small tin of lemon pepper tuna, 1/2 avocado, 1/2 mini box of sprouts (mini-win - I've never finished a box of these doo-dads before they've gone bad - Yay me!);
Second up - two wraps done quesadilla style with 2 slices of swiss cheese and 2 slices of deli chicken between them and fired in the pan with a little bit of pam spary; and
Third up - 1 cup of garden mushroom soup with 20 goldfish crackers.

I'm fully, happy, tired and excited about the rest of this week and getting my good food in me. I'm going to sleep well tonight.
