Welcome

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.

2 week challenge

Awesome link through Kimberly. I found Allan's challenge, which I am going to participate in!

This is the first real challenge that I've take up. So I have to do myself proud, and ... I really like the rules.












CHALLENGE RULES
  1. YOUR DAILY CALORIC INTAKE IS YOUR GOAL WEIGHT X 11
    (goal weight - 190lbs, caloric intake - 2090)
  2. EVERYTHING YOU INGEST COUNTS AND NEEDS TO BE RECORDED
    (check!)
  3. YOU DRINK 64 OUNCES OF WATER DAILY
    (2L or more!)
  4. NO CHEATING AND NO BULLSHIT
    (Sounds good!)
  5. 2 WEEKS, STARTING 10/25/2010
    (check)
  6. WEIGH IN MONDAY MORNING AND WEIGH IN 11/8/2010
    (great! totally excited for tomorrows weigh in!)
Now...to try and do the math.. 64oz is .....about 2 L. Okay, no problem there. I'm a water matching now! :)

Also. I have my goal weight at 190lbs. That means some adjusting my calorie intake as I am currently at 2100, and so it should be set now to 2090 calories. Hot dam I'm really really close!

......Now the panic sets in as I realize that we are having guests for 5 days and are going to have to take them out for dinner and survive a weekend!!!!. OMG! I LUFF FOOD, I CAN'T DO THIS.... yes, yes I can!

Be calm self and look at rule number 4. I will make it work.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Okay - onto another note. Hurt self today. Strained something in my back while doing the vacuuming. Idiot!!!!

Actually - I did a 3.5mile walk with the hubby this morning (awesome!), came home and did an hour of dusting and vigorous vacuuming. Then showered and twisted funny while getting out.

CURSE THIS FATNESS. I'm so weak in the abs and back now I feel like I keep hurting myself with my own bulk. Its sooooo....Aggravating.

2 Week Challenge - here I come.

Sorry you hurt yourself, but congrats on the walk with hubby.

You CAN do this. Let your guest know that you are doing a challenge and will be watching what you eat. If they give you a problem show them Allan's blog and they will get why you HAVE to follow rule #4.

+ WTG on the exercise. That is a whole lot of walking. You may hurt but you should be proud.

Wow, that was a good walk! I just started, and was feeling good about the mile I put in. LOL Well, I guess I have to start somewhere, right?

Your starting weight (306) was similar to my own (307), so it will be fun to watch your progress. I'm in Allan's DDDY challenge too! We can do this!!

Best of luck, and I hope you feel better soon.
