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.

Blood Donation

Did my good deed for the day and I'm happy. I ended up staying in my caloric range (thank you Allan for pointing that out!) and I did have some sugary stuff to help bounce back from the pint down I am on blood.

I am participating in Allan's challenge which could have also been named, "Watched by the Eye of Sauron". ha!! I am impressed with his diligence!! You rock Allan!

I made sure to load up on water, also eat before and after the donation. I'm really not feeling that horrible. I hope this carries on, typically I feel worse the next day. So tomorrow will tell.

Food today was good. I did a lot of fretting and calculating. "managing" the food. I guess that this is just something that I'm eventually just 'do' naturally. Right now my ideas on portions and need are based on a set point that is so out of whack that I need constant vigilance to ensure I'm not stepping back into old ways.

I ended up eating only 3.4 of my lunch to make sure that I stayed in my range today. And.. I'm not feeling deprived! I did eat my lunch very fast today - much faster than usual. I need to remember to sllllllooooooow down. This is not a race, its a meal.

We were going to go to see RED tonight, but I got the Amex bill today from last month when we were up visiting family and.... we are going to stay in and be frugal with the netflicks. HA! A very good compromise.
