Soooooo Exhausted

The treadmill is kicking my butt! So much so, I didn't even get on it today. I just couldn't. I am soooo incredibly sore all over. And my blistered feet are a poor sight. My shoes are just entirely too tight. I've decided when I reach my next 15 lb. goal, which will be at the 30 lb. marker, that I'm killing the budget and splurging on a new pair of New Balance walking shoes. My feet are just too important and I'm tired of all the continuous pain.

I've been eating 1400 calories for the last 2 days, and intended to today, but I'm ending at 1319. I know this is going to sound shocking, but I'm just too tired to eat anymore. LOL....take note of this....I'm sure it will be one of VERY FEW times you hear Fat Tammy say she's too tired to eat. Truthfully, I can barely keep my eyes open so I think I'm going to hit the bed at 8pm tonight. Amazing. Due to my persistent insomnia, I usually don't get there til 1a-2a. But that's the way it goes with me......several nights in a row of only 4-5 hours of sleep, and then one day I crash before it's even dark outside. Precious sleep....I'm totally looking forward to it.

I am praying for a 2 lb. loss tomorrow morning so I can reach my 10 lb. goal for this month. Check back tomorrow morning to see if I'm cussing like a sailor or doing the buck naked Happy Dance. :)

  1. Good luck with your 2lb goal. Sounds like you are working really hard towards it. Can't wait to hear the results

  2. Oh Tammy my friend...NEW shoes---So important. Take care of those feet, seriously!
    I know they're expensive---but you deserve it, you feet deserve it---your journey deserves it.
    I just took a 2.5 hour nap! It was a must after last night. I feel refreshed!
    I don't blame you for going to bed early---I would too! Get some much needed rest! I kept you up way too late last night!
    Tammy,---you're awesome and the wonderful post you wrote earlier this morning was just incredible. What a gift---to have a friend like you.

    My best always,

  3. Good luck on your weigh in, Tammy. Can't wait to check in on your blog in the morning!

  4. That treadmill's a real punk, isn't it?! But don't let it get you down! :)

    I'll be hoping for the buck naked happy dance!! :D

  5. You are like me, I love to stay up at night and if I could, I'd be up till 3am. It sounds like you needed to rest. Your body needs time to recover when you work it. I hope your feet feel better! Ouch, blisters Hurt.

    Whatever the scale says on Friday, be happy with how hard you've worked this week!

    Sleep well, Tammy.

  6. too tired to eat any more?! :)

    have a great day today---regardless of what the scale says, Woman.

    youre doing fantastically.


  7. I hope it's the happy dance, and not the other type! Good job on your eating and your exercising!

  8. tammy... wow.. are you eating enough?? 1400 cal seems so low.. and then you're even going below that. But what do I know.

    take care of those feet... working out til you're too sore to work out the next day is NOT a good thing.

    take care of you.
