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.

Christmas Party 0 - Tamzin - 1

Timed it perfectly!

We arrived as all my co-workers were finished eating. They were just getting up and starting to take some photos and starting to get into the evenings entertainment.

We skipped the whole food thing. Not a single thing. Oh, I had half a cup of coffee with cream at about 9.30. So I did get some calories in. Other than that, I put nothing across my lips. Surprise surprise... I didn't die? wow!

It was a casino night theme with your chips turned in for tickets that you entered raffles with. Turns out I'm quite good at craps. HAHAHAHA I'm punny!! ;) We had a great time. I had water with lime, husband had the free Heineken's and we gambled!

This was a very successful night on many levels. I had to go to the dessert table to turn in my chips, and I made it quick. I didn't want to be around the sweets, lest I get tempted. I lied to a couple of people about dinner/eating there. The "yes, we had some food - it was great" kind of lies. Pretty soon most people were too drunk to even bother asking. HA!

As for the evening, it was a riot. I ended up winning a raffle prize for two tickets to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. I'm so excited! :) okay.. bed time for good girls!

Girl, you did awesome! It was a really good idea to show up late and then give the ol' "I already had some" fib ;) I have to do that at work a lot. I like to bake so I am constantly bringing in stuff for other people so when they bring in stuff, they always bring some over to my desk. I usually wait for them to walk away and then take it back to the communal food table and just say I ate it, LOL.

Congrats on the win too. Sounds like it was a successful night all around :)
