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.

Inches update ***NOW with significantly less sniveling

Weight in - 272.4lbs
up 0.2lbs
Inches - 321.4inches
same (different locations but same numbers)

Neck -16, Bust - 47.5, Ribcage - 41.5, Waist - 47, Hips - 52, Thigh (L) - 26.8, Thigh (R) - 24.8, Calf (L) - 18.9, Calf (R) - 17.9, Bicep (L) - 14.5, Bicep (R) - 14.5

I walked down the office stairwell tonight and thought about the first time that I did that due to the lovely Karen's stair challenge. I thought that I was going to D.I.E. and/or my hip flexers were going to rip right off my pelvis. Today, it was a quick and easy jaunt down 468 stairs to the main floor.

I walked home, at a good clip and wasn't breathing too hard. I remembered that I used to be breathing so hard that people in front of me would know to step aside - they could hear me coming. Today I'm a stealthier ninja like this blogger!

My abs are a little sore - from holding me up while I've started running... hey! I've started running!!

Perhaps I am clinging to a ball on Newtons Cradle, but I think that the swings are getting smaller. I have to remember that WANTING to eat half of China is not the same as eating half of China. My old habits and cravings will likely not go away as quickly as my disappearing inches. But, I'm going to have to learn to deal with it.

Thank you to TX Tena, The new viewer C, UK Helen, and the very fit and apparently nerdy NerdGirl. You are all right and thanks for your comments today - they gave me perspective.

Anyway - I've been neglectful with my piccies. Here you go for a little catchup on my photos.

Hey you do more exercise than me. My next weeks challenge is to do more exercise. You have inspired me with your running. I have always had this feeling, or ambition to run the London Marathon. I will need some serious training if I am to ever do that.
