Welcome

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.

Daily Report

I slept VERY little last night, only 5 hours. I'm bad, very very bad. New books are my downfall and last night I was awake until 1.45 reading, then spent 15min trying to fall asleep. Tonight I'm going to bed very early - reading and sleeping 8+hours. No if, ands, or buts.

I woke up today and my legs were a little warm from the walk home last night - YAY for getting back into it. Tonight... weights and walk home. I have to say that with my increased water drinking, I'm feeling good. I'm still pretty thirsty in the mornings - but I think this is more due to the fact that I'm a mouth breather when I sleep. I used to keep a big glass of water next to the bed and drink it all over the night whenever I'd wake up. But I've gotten out of that habit... not sure if thats for the better or worse?

Lunch:
1c brown&wild rice with 1c green& yellow beans & 1/2 baked chicken breast

I've been trying to improve on my sleeping. I've never been able to go straight to sleep no matter how tired I am. I've started reading in bed instead of watching TV in bed and that's really helped.

LOL, I do that sometimes too - start a book and then stay up until I finish it. The Harry Potter series challenged me because some of those books are impossible to read in one sitting.
