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.

Thirsty Thirsty Tamzin....

This last few days has been a marathon of packing and cleaning. My Mum was in town and we spent the weekend cleaning and fighting! HA! Bless she is a saint to put up with me for the weekend... I was quite the bear.

It was physically and psychologically hard...throwing out all the things that I have amassed over the years... It was ... not nice, but necessary. And like all good Mothers, she knows how to push my buttons! Ah well... love her anyway.

I have been dehydrated since Thursday night....I've been trying and trying and trying to get more water in and once you are far gone down the lacking water trail - the harder it is to get out. All weekend I was missing water. Sunday morning my fingers were so swollen I couldn't get both my rings on. This morning....I struggled to get them both on. So terrible.

I worked really hard today to drink more water and I did pretty good.

On to the good stuff...

Weigh - In

I got up and weighed in this morning and was 275lbs

.... but I knew that I was retaining water like a SOB.... So I waited today until I got home and weighed in again, even though I knew that after a day of eating I'm usually heavier....

272 Lbs

Right on track! WOOOHOOO

Other then that - I ate breakfast, walked to work and walked home. Did a 6km walk home tonight and feeling pretty good. Must get more veggies in me though...and I have to pack a couple of lunches for this week and get my water in...I'm still a little dehydrated.

Scale is going the right direction. Good for you. Fight to get that water in. I know it's hard, but you're on the right track.

Drink up, girlie! You're working hard and not thinking about it, I know, but please stay hydrated. Your mum sounds like mine :) Love her to pieces but can get me going! Have I asked before where in TX? Near Houston?
