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.

how many hours in a day?

Couldn't I just get like 2 or 3 more sometimes? just so I can try and catch up??

The last three days have been flat out from sun up to sun down. I did manage to get in two walks of about 45-50min each. Very pleased with that....even though I have yet to update my goals on the side....(might do that next).

Monday night I had the extreme pleasure of seeing Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Raiders playing at a small venue here in the Big H-bomb. He is hilarious, and can really kick the crap outa a banjo!

Tuesday morning at 8am sharp I had a second interview with an O&G company... very pleased about that and am awaiting details. Better job - better $ and better benefits. They offered me the job - now awaiting the background check etc...Fingers crossed they don't find out about me being fat...oh wait.... haha!!

I'm now totally bagged - not enough sleep - stress and catching up at the office from my morning off (I did the right thing and lied about an appointment and booked personal time! haha).

Tonight we have a standard coffee date with a group of friends, but I was just not in the mood... convinced hubby to go walking with me. :) It was really nice out - getting dark and cooled off a bit from the sunny day.

Eating has been off. I'm feeling FAT really really fat. I think that this is both hormonal and mental... but it sure isn't fun. I have been off my counting calories - always bad... I have NO idea what is going in anymore and that spells disaster.

I tried to get some clothes for work this weekend and was disappointed in my size... I don't know what I was expecting... but this isn't it. Once again...goal setting and achieving has not happened.

So... here we go. I'm getting on the scale tomorrow morning - (because I lack the sack to get on right now) and I will say this now... and forever....

I (yes me) WILL (no excuses) LOSE 25lbs before JULY 30th - which is my 36th Birthday.

Congrats!!! I'm so happy for you bout the new job. Is it closer to home? I totally hear you about the shopping thing. I went the other day and all I got was depressed :(

The Houston heat will be here soon and I'll still be sweating like a - pig, heh!

Best of luck with the new job! Hopefully it will be less stressful for you. I remember when I'd take just one day off from work and be boggled for a week with the workload. Not good when you're trying to eat healthy. Most importantly, you need to get more sleep; so important when trying to lose weight. BTW, even as a stay at home wife, I sometimes wish the day had more hours. :)
