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.

Tuesdays blurb

Can I just say quickly, how excited I am to see all the people that have joined up for this 6 week self impossed eat clean challenge. :D YAY!!

Thank you Katschi for getting the ball rolling on this one. You rock my (gym) socks!

Foods for today:

Breakfast - 1 cup Almond Breeze (unsweetened)...this stuff is nectar of the gods!!, 1 med banana, 1 med skim milk latte, 1/2 cup 1% cottage cheese
Snack 1 - kashi Black cherry chocolate chip bar, coffee with milk (Hello... I have dumped cream like a bad boyfriend! I am so proud, almost as proud as when I stopped putting sugar in my coffee... I'm a REAL grown up!)
Water thus far - 3/4 litre (not good enough!)

Food to come:
Snack 2 - 1 pita, 1.5 cups baby carrots, 2 tbsp hummus
Lunch - 1 baked chicken breast, 1 tsp 2 herb mustard, 1/5 cups green&yellow beans, 1 Kiwi
Snack 3 - oatmeal, 2 tbsp protein, 1 tbs ground flax, 1/2 cup raspberries
Snack 4 - Couscous&Lentil soup
Snack 5 - Green Apple
Dinner - TBD

Tonight I need to get home and pack to go home for the holidays. A short jaunt to see my family for 4 days. Sadly, I have to work the 29-31 and the 2nd, so no long holiday for us. However.... that means that I'll be at the office and not grazing at home on Christmas treats, AND I'll be in very close proximity to the gym.

So my one other goal for this challenge is this. Sleep
I typically get 5.5 - 6hours a night. Which is REALLY not enough. First of all, I'm hard to get out of bed (read here Grumpy bear that hits snooze at least 3 times), and secondly, I can sleep 11 hours straight on the weekend - both days... that means that I'm NOT getting enough ZZZ's in the week. And we all know that this is a major inhibitor for losing weight.

So I am going to challenge myself to get into bed before 11.30pm every night and see if that will make a difference. I don't see how it won't.

Thanks for the recipe--will definitely be trying it.

The one thing I still can't give up is sweetness in my coffee especially this time of year (I LOVE the pumpkin spice coffee creamer from international delight!)
