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.

no joy - no surprise

I hopped up on the scale this morning and got no joy. Higher then yesterday so I'll just take my lumps here and move onwards.

I'm going to hold on to my happy thought of the week which is that the jeans that I wore home on the plane (and back, cause lets face it... I'm lazy and only brought one set of cloths, plus a change of smalls) were tight on me at Christmas, and this last weekend... loose enough that should I have vigorously jumped up and down, they would have fallen off.

Now, also to take into consideration is the fact that I have a huge waist and very small hips, so I very rarely actually zipper and button up my pants, most of the time I just slide them on! LOL

Regardless... Yesterday my water was excellent, however my eating... terrible.

coffee & creamers x2
pro-atmeal (oats, flax, protein powder)
plate of sweet potato fries with curry mustard for dipping
Large California spring salad.... 1 handful candied pecans, soft goat cheese, mixed greens, red onion & strawberries with a vinaigrette.

Let me just say that my sense of frugality was extremely offended that I paid $13.00 for that salad and I make virtually the same thing for dinner more nights then not and it does NOT cost me $13.00. Not only that, but mine are actually better and tastier (and with the apples it gives me a more satisfying meal with some crunch to it) and this was not a large. In fact, my lunch companion got a starter size of that salad and it was the same size only served on a smaller plate. I was very disappointed and will not be returning to that establishment for lunching anytime soon...and my "anytime soon" I mean never again.

Tin of flavored tuna (this one is just tuna in oil - which is quite nice)
can't recall
coffee and cream (Starbucks)
oat fudge bar (Starbucks)
3 hot Italian sausages
3 white hogie buns
lots of mustard

Anyway, that was yesterday and I have to keep moving forward... today is a running night (I think...we are switching between Tuesdays and Wednesdays), but if I don't have running tonight I'm going to go to the gym after work and do some running on the treadmill or jump on the elliptical machine. I must get back in the habit.

Today will be better then yesterday.
