My class had their annual Fall Feast where the kids cook and invite their parents to come eat. It made me reflect on being thankful. There are too many things to mention here, but there a few that I think Sparkpeople can relate to. 1) Food... Read more

I should have added, to my last blog, that I have gotten nine tattoos. Three were covers so you only see six of them. The funny thing is my husband has zero and my brother-in-law just got his first about a year ago...then he got his second. ... Read more

The oldest has been doing well in her recovery. She's been asking for a tattoo for two years now. We told her that we'd allow it, if she was keeping up on her recovery. She's been doing everything the doctors have asked and she's only four mo... Read more

It was 77 degrees here today. I did lots of yard work, cleaned bathrooms and the house. It was a good feeling to get everything done. I loved having the house open and the warm breeze blowing through it. The oldest and I had a nice talk... Read more

The hubby and I were discussing the oldest and her eating disorder. We thought she had been "slipping" a bit, but she assured us she wasn't. (She mentioned gaining weight as proof. I wish she didn't focus on that.) She wants our permission ... Read more

I walk every morning with a fellow teacher. While I walk I push a young lady in her manual wheelchair. She weighs 110 lbs. and it keeps her happy and some social time away from her mom and it's a great workout for me. I actually work up a swe... Read more

Today is a day for making choices. Who will be the next president, what will I eat, what exercise will I do. Some will be made for the better and some for the not-so-good. We face choices everyday and all we can do is the best that we c... Read more

Believe it or not, my oldest is playing in a college search tournament in St. Lous, MO this weekend. I'm really surprised that she recovered so quickly. I don't think her MD really wanted to clear her, but she did. I think she's still concern... Read more

It was a rough day on my classroom. It's usually challenging, but with the full moon it's been even more so! To top is off my oldest forgot her appointment with her psychologist. Yes, I believe her as she was with the school's athletic trainer... Read more

I ate good and got plenty of exercise. I just got home from a Midwest Minor Medical clinic with our oldest. She rolled her ankle while peddling backwards during a soccer game. The ankle wasn't broken, but she does have pulled ligaments. We c... Read more

The weigh in was fine. I was only up 1.2 lbs. So I just went "back" to the water, fresh fruits and veggies and better choices. So far it's been a good weekend. My youngest and I had Friday off, so we got to spend it together. He went wi... Read more

Parent teacher conferences are over, but I'm a little worried about the scale tomorrow morning. I had pizza and cake for dinner. Not the best choice before a weigh in. I guess we'll see..... ... Read more

We had a little discussion with the oldest about her eating. We want to make sure she isn't slipping into her old ED ways. She says the dietitian said she could reduce her calories since is isn't doing two sports anymore, but we want to make s... Read more

It was the normal busy weekend in our house. Cleaning for the in-laws that are coming for a visit, laundry, mowing the lawn, raking leaves, fertilizer, etc. My soon-to-be 16 year old (tomorrow is her actual birthday) had a good time with... Read more
