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.

it happened..I enjoyed a run!

Too much salt for sure, my ankles were showing it to me after work.... I also took the bus both ways to work and home this morning - which doesn't do me any favors. The morning walk is good for the circulation and so is the one home. Must get my stuff organized sooner so I have things to wear on the way home.

I drank lots of water and I had another great sleep last night. Work today was busy but not crazy and even some pretty fun moments.

Tonight was running night, it was cool out but today....I felt strong...my breathing wasn't as ragged and I didn't feel like I was running to catch up all night. It was a great feeling...and it was nice to know what is coming. I was energized. :) YAY! what a great way to start the weekend.

Food was ...not great. I ate too much salty processed foods. I struggled coming home from my run - I wanted Wendy's and decided that I would stop at the local Drug mart w/ grocery section and get some waters, sandwich baggies and q-tips... I ended up leaving with chips, salsa and fake cheese. :( I ate it all. Happily there was a time when I could and would eat more then TWICE that amount. I would never buy one bag of tortilla chips.. it was always 2. Anyway - it was gross of me to do that and I should have said no, but I didn't. So when I post my big 'WAAAA' on Monday about gaining again you have free reign to give me the "talking to" that I will need/deserve.

One step forwards, two steps back. Why is it so easy to sit here and say - NO MORE. But when my hand reaches for the junk, its so easy to say, ONE MORE??

Most of my issues with this are on mess/convenience. The kitchen is a nightmare - to get any food prep done would require more time to clean and get ready then to make the food... I don't want to do that so I cope out and get bought food. NOT GOOD. Time to break out the lists again and start cleaning as I go instead of piling up the dishes until there are none left.

Great job with the run. I hope to start soon.

WOW congrats on the running. I'm not able to due to knee issues but always want to do it when I get on the treadmill but know that I'll pay for it later. Bummer!

It's such a challenge to change our old ways isn't it? Definitely a bonus that we don't eat as much as we used to but still not easy to give up.

Get those dishes done and start the lists again. You'll be so happy you did.

Have a great weekend!

That's great that you enjoyed your run! I'm still struggling with a light jog; it feels like my shins are breaking apart, my arse is going to dissemble and my calves seem to roll up into painful balls. So, I'm looking forward to getting to the point where you're at! I totally commiserate on the food front. I seem to always sabotage my efforts; when I exercise well, I eat too much and when I eat well, I don't exercise enough. Or I'll have 2 good days and then 3 bad days. Very frustrating. I hope we both learn to conquer our inner demons.
