Tatlock's truth June challenge

So it's no secret that I have been sucking at life lately.

I am so behind with my thesis I could cry (and maybe I have, who's to say).

I have received more job rejections than I thought humanly possible.

For a job that is suppossed to be stress free, there has been increasing amounts of stress.

And last, and most relevant to the blog, I have SUCKED at this whole health and weight-loss thing.

In-fact, quite the opposite, I have been stress eating again. it started off so innocently, but it's like a damn has burst and i'm out of control.


I have a cunning plan.

I have re-joined weight watchers. It hurt, £25 is not an insignificant amount of money for me, but seeing the seemingly ever increasing number on the scale was hurting a whole lot more. So from tomorrow (June 2nd) I will be having my hand held by the WW conglomeration.

So weight watchers is gonna help with the diet, but what about the rest of it, because it IS a life-style. Well that's where Shannon's fantastic challenge comes in.

For the first time in my life I am failing at water drinking (curses on the lack of public toilet facilities), so I am going to have to make a real effort to do most of my drinking first thing in the morning and at night.

Portion control..... thanks WW mobile app, it'll keep me on the stright and narrow, I hope.

Exercise, I'm altering this one a little, I am walking for 6ish hours straight. But I need to start training for a run again. But I wanna ease myself into it..... so 2x a week I will run. Also I have a stretches book from like the mid 80s. it takes 15mins, I WILL do that everyday.

So there we go. 

Tomorrow we will turn this thing around.

p.s Saturday I put in an application for an AMAZING job, prayers and good vibes would be much appreciated


  1. Sounds like an excellent plan! Good luck with the job! (Fingers crossed!)

  2. Hooray! Glad you're in to the challenge! :)
