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.

Various Monday sh*ttery

Yesterday:
1. didn't get in 3L of water. Almost, but not quite
2. didn't get 8hrs of sleep last night (Damn you new book)

Today:
1. I did drink +3L of water
2. I am not on track for 8 hours...(get off the blog and get to bed!!)
3. I walked 4.5km home tonight. Nice and easy - but good and I was a little sweaty when I got in.

I'll do better tonight. I weighed in this morning for a (slightly) disappointing -0.2lbs burned. It doesn't seem like much really after the last weigh in - but I'll take what I can get since a +0.2 would be very unwelcome. I'll post my measurements and new piccies tonight when I get home. Weeeee!!!! Aren't you excited?? :)

Edit:: I do have a Non-Scale Victory today (last few days) - my wedding&engagement rings are getting loose!! And... I have two pairs of pants that I can ALMOST button up - that were no where near a couple weeks ago. Yay me!

Also a quick thank you to Mel for her comment here today - reminding me that nearly 3L is pretty darn good and that I'm doing great. Which I am, since that almost double what I was drinking before. Actually ... make that a quick thank you to all who come and visit (and comment). It really makes my day and does give me good food for thought :)

This weight change is a small number and is really a result of what I was talking about earlier for me - the monkey say, monkey do. I say say say and want want want... but I don't do do do....there is a Police song in here somewhere. Anyway, now that I'm eating better, drinking more water and getting better rest..... I need to add in the last part of the recipe... exercise. I've been lacking that in a big way over the last month.

what's with this sh*ttery!?!
You had a *great* day and 'almost 3L' is actually more than half of what most people drink.. so ease up there!

I also got sucked in by a book last night.. and def. less than 7 hours of sleep.. D*mn you, good books!!

It's very very hard to drink water...by the time I go to bed, I'm gagging down the rest of what I'm supposed to drink and then I'm up all night peeing! You are doing GREAT!

.2 pounds AND better fitting jewelry and pants...that is a victory! Thanks for inspiring me to increase my water intake. I have been slacking! One thing at a time. GARRR!
