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.

Food for the last 2 days has been excellent. We did eat out last night, split a salad and had a veggie pizza. Felt good. Nothing too heavy or filling.

I decided to step on the scale this morning to see if I had done some damage....I was down this morning to 302. Wow.

As I was driving home...trying to think of all the things that would have happened if this were a regular week ohhhh a month ago.

I would have had at least double the calories I think. Usually I have 2 or 3 coffees with cream (180 calories) a day. I'm down to one. I would have had at least 1 bag of M&M's (250 calories) a day at lunch. I would have had a bagel (370 calories) and 3x the amount of peanut butter (376 calories) I need for breakfast. Cutting out those three things has already made a massive impact.

180 + 250 + 370 + 370 = 1176

My current calorie limit is 2100. Right there at breakfast on a normal day I would have already had close to half! WOW. That is crazy. My typical breakfast is around 400, coffe with creamers inclusive!

Not that this is a breeze, its not easy. I have to keep reminding myself that being hungry is not the end of the world and that its okay to feel it. And that I have enough food. Then think back on my "fat picture" and remember that I don't want to be like that anymore. Change is hard.

I have my weekend of eating all laid out. Breakfast and lunch for tomorrow from My Fit Foods in the fridge. Tomorrow night for supper I'm making Butternut Squash Ravioli for dinner with a light tomato sauce. Right out of the Clean Eating mag. I'm excited. Basically wonton wrappers, S&P and BNS!

okay - hubby and I are going walking. Time to go!
