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.

Was the night before....

Christmas, and all through the house
not a crumb of junk food, not even enough for a mouse.

Todays walk was lovely. There was sunshine and crisp air. I love walking out in the park on days like that. Lots of people out smiling and walking dogs. Very nice morning.

I headed over to battle it out in the HEB. We needed the veg for tomorrows roast beast and some salad stuff to hold us over until the weekend passes. I got some more cottage cheese as well. I'm loving that stuff, even though I've not had any today or yesterday.

Tonight, since the husband is going to be doing a significant amount of cooking tomorrow, I'm taking him to dinner at a fabulous place called Ziggies Healthy Grill. There is some really amazing food there. Healthy is of course, "arguable". But they do a great job of outlining everything on the menu and not adding in sugar and extra fats.

Tomorrow morning will be my traditional "irish breakfast". I couldn't find any black and white pudding sadly. Damn SPECS was sold out. So its heinz beans, roasted tomatoes, irish bacon and poached eggs. I think the husband picked up some whole wheat english muffins as well.

We will set out for a nice big long walk in the morning. Pre-breakfast. Then the late afternoon roast bison.

TRON Later with friends and then really... back to normal life. Christmas is really not that big a deal without family and kiddies around. They are the ones that really make it.

I'll give the grandparents a call, and my brother and his family, talk to my mother, then call my bestie and let her tell me all the adventures of her family Christmas. Their little boy is 3 now. PRIME Christmas loving age.

In terms of the rest of me and this weight struggle. I'm feeling really good today. I have noticed a number of things that are going on. I suppose that I will hide them all down here at the bottom of this Loooong ass boring post.

1. New dress pants... in 22! That is a size down!
2. Went to trim my toe nails and found that my legs got shorter...or is it just that I can REACH them easier!!
3. pulled on a tshirt today and did not have to spend 2 minutes stretching the thing out with my elbows to be able to wear it.

Not too shabby for a trio of Christmas gifts to myself.

Alright. Time to get productive. Too much time on the computer today and in front of the TV.

Happy Holidays to you too, Tamzin! I think sometimes those NSV are even sweeter than seeing the lower numbers on the scale. My weight loss journey has been less about the pounds lost than about the things I can do now that I couldn't do before. Just WALKING is a major change. I was in a wheelchair before.

I love Ziggys! The chickpea burger is one of my favorites.

Congrats on your NSVs and I hope you have an amazing Christmas.
