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.

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.

Monday's WI and a story!

Weight in.... holding steady at 276.6 ug

am - 2.5
pm - 6
total 8.5km

I promised you a story and yesterday I didn't deliver... so here it is....

I am currently living with a friend (as I am still waiting on immigration, I've rented out the condo and now am living out of large Rubbermaid bins that hold my person items. ...yes, thank you for asking, it is depressing). I was into the shower a few minutes late and so in a hurry to get out so that he can get in there to get ready to go to the office as well. The house he has rented is older and the tub... is a very slippery little bugger. its like standing on the back of a wet eel to be honest. Now, in my rush to get out of there I lunge forward to shut off the water ...and ...my foot slips out from under me....

I get catapulted out the shower curtain, hit my leg on the lip of the toilette and slam the side of my head into the counter top then fall backwards, still wrapped in the shower curtain, and on the way down to the floor I manage to rip the lid off the toilette seat.

I end up laying on the floor alongside the tub, wrapped in the shower curtain, getting sprayed by the shower head, with a goose egg behind my ear and moaning like I've been hit with a bat.

My poor roomie is knocking on the door and asking if I'm okay. All I can think is how emotionally scarred the poor man will be if he has to come in and see my fat naked body! I manage to struggle to my feet and get the water turned off. My head was aching... but I still got dressed and went to the office. I felt pretty sick all weekend, I'm sure I have a mild concussion. There is a big bruise behind my ear and its all swollen still. Ug.

Needless to say it was not a great weekend, but thankfully... I lived. And now we have numerous sticky sea-shells covering the bottom of the tub and a new toilette seat to install!

I'm certainly glad no other major damage was done to your body.

However, now knowing you're ok has left me with quite a visual. :)

Oh, Tam! I'm so sorry you fell but I'm so glad you didn't break any body parts! Keep a check on that bump on your noggin!

I did kinda snicker a little at your description of you in heap wrapped in the shower curtain. Sorry, I'm a sick puppy!! Glad you're okay, though.

Wow! Falling in the bathroom is scary stuff. Especially deflating when you are trying to get things going your way too. Certainly trumps my rolled ankle while walking story.

I'm going to add a link to you my blog - fatdaddyrantsblog.blogspot.com.

Come check me out and give me some feedback if you get the chance.

In the meantime, hang in there.
