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.

Keep Calm and Carry on

Monday - got up and did my cardio. I was still sore from Saturday weights, but feeling better. I over did it for sure and I'm paying the price. No serious damage, but lower back pain and stiffness to the max.
omg...does anyone ever say "to the max" anymore or am I still living in the dark ages? I typed that and thought... damn that is ooooooold.

I went to bed at 10 on Monday night, and slept late on Tuesday morning. I woke up and just felt that I needed the rest. So I took it. I felt a lot better today - more alert.

I'm about to go to bed now, and hope to have the lights out at 10.30. I'm up for my cardio tomorrow at 5.55am so going to aim for 45min.

I'm REALLY struggling with water this last couple weeks. I KNOW I need more. Just trying to get it in is a struggle. Food this week is going to be much better. There is a no dinner out policy in place this week. Monday and Tuesday dinners were a success. I have a work luncheon out tomorrow, however I've looked at the menu and there are lots of great salad options that I will pick from.
Tomorrow I'm going to aim for 2.5l of water at the office. That should do me!
Thank you all for your comments. I am keeping calm and carrying on. I can not stop, or yes... I would have gained 100+. I keep wishing that there was a way that I could just fix this - magic wand style. I know there there isn't so ..... here I am! Trying to make it work.
I gave a friend who is struggling job wise some really good advice, now I need to take it as well.

This one I added just because it makes me laugh! :)

I don't really say 'to the max'. I think in that instance I would say something like 'like crazy'. That's just me ;-)

I can't recall the last time I said to the max - maybe 20 years ago LOL!

I just bought a sign for the wall with that saying on it! I L-O-V-E it!!!
