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.

Well its been a hectic, fun and exhausting few days... well... week really.

I've eating like sh*t while on "holidays" (booze, bacon, pancakes, turkey dinner, pie, burgers, fries, milkshakes, coffees ad nausium, chips, pop) and frankly my weight show what 4 days of debauchery can do to a person.

More damaging then those culinary indiscretions was the total lack of water. I would guess I got in less the 1ltr most days. I'm finally starting to feel hydrated today. Not to mention the sleep deprivation, which surly is not good for the waste line.

However I did get in a few fun things - dog walking, hit a bucket of balls at the driving range, and racked leaves in the yard. But that was sandwiched between driving, eating and drinking! Oops!

Anyway - from here out is general life complaining. Feel free to skip this self indulgent ranting!

Nevertheless....I'm still moving forward. This week has been crazy. I have put the condo up for rent so the last two days was all cleaning...from the time I got in from the office until I passed out in bed.... cleaning, cleaning tossing junk, moving boxes, washing floors, walls, windows, organizing, scrubbing.

Not to mention the stress of thinking about moving...which we hope is going to happen on July 1st... so its into temporary accommodations for a month... or maybe two. *sigh* if July doesn't happen.

This weekend I'll be out of the house again with a friend who has recently split and needs help packing/moving their stuff back from another city (3hours drive away). I don't mind per say - but it is tough to be out of the house for Fri night through Sunday night and then commence with another week of work.

I've not been good about bed time, push ups, water, walking to work or anything else.... have to get myself back on track... after tonight... its rest and plan for me again.

I bet you burned a lot of calories with all that cleaning and shifting of boxes.

Nevertheless, a move is a stressful time for you and I agree, long weekends out of the house are hard when it is straight back to the job on monday morning!

Keep as well as you can during this time and eat healthily to help you through it.

Do the best that you can in each moment and if need be ask yourself is the best you can do in that moment.

Get some rest, and hopefully all other things will fall into place as planned.

Tam, I'm worn out just thinking about all the work you're putting in! Moving is one of the most stressful things you can do. Take good care of yourself and drink that water even if you don't eat well.

Moving just plain sucks!! No matter how well it is planned, it is a pain in the b***!!! Just remember thru all of this craziness to take care of YOU. Not everything has to get done right at the very moment you think of it...you can do it later, if need be. You come first.

You can get back on track! Start with the water... that will always help.
