I'm ready for a three day weekend. Today was the first time that I went over calories in a long time. It wasn't horrible, but I am so full. I know once in a while isn't going to "undo" all the good I've done, but I forgot what it feels like t... Read more

It was a good day. I walked three miles with a friend today. It was fun and we had a couple of nice big hills. I watched my oldest play soccer and went to the barn with my second oldest. It was a day of being outside. The warmth and sunshin... Read more

I finally did it! After five weeks of not riding horses, I rode for the first time last night. It was hard, but not as hard as I thought it would be. I think the time has helped me heal from losing my beloved mare. There will never be anothe... Read more

It's been a weekend of "parties." A going away party for a friend's son and a birthday party for another friend. I didn't have time to log the food, but I ate smart. So far so good. Off for another busy day of volunteer work and kids' st... Read more
One week behind me!

Well, I survived the first week of school. I'm proud to say I only gained 3/10 of a pound this week. (I've been under my goal range.) I've decided since I've been in this "new range" for three weeks that it must be were my body is comfortable... Read more
Sparking through tiredness

It's only the second day of work and I'm tired! I'm staying in my calorie range, but barely making my water. I have to drink several cups at night. I need to be more diligent about drinking water during the day. Maybe then I won't be so tire... Read more

Today was the first day back to school. I got to meet my "new" students. Three moved up to the Intermediate room and one is brand new to our school. They are a great group of kids. I was a ditz and wore heels today and boy am I sore. ... Read more

I spent the day with my friend that I asked prayers for. She is well. She is going to see a spiritual adviser to help her heal completely from what happened. She is a strong person and I know that she will be a better person at the end of this... Read more

The friend that I asked prayers for contacted me today via text. She "sounded" good and I was very happy to hear from her. She is healing and hopefully we'll be back soon. Thank you all for your prayers. I also realized how much this c... Read more

First day back to work and it was a lot of meetings...aka. sitting. I was able to get a little paperwork done. I ate well today and stayed in my range. Ok, except for fat. I think that it was the taco salad shell and Frito's in the Frito taco... Read more

As a teacher, I do relish my summers with my own four kids, but now I'm getting ready to go back to work tomorrow. I'm ready to pack my lean cuisines, fruit, and water bottles so I don't undo all that I've accomplished. It seems like the s... Read more

A soul sister, as I call her, was badly beaten by an acquaintance last night. She's in the hospital, but has been transferred to another one for her safety. Only family is allowed to visit and know where she is. So all I can do is text her an... Read more

Gearing up to go back to work.

As a teacher, I know we are fortunate to get summers off. (Although, they are much needed by the end of the year.) I start back next week and I'll admit I'm not ready mentally. Don't get me wrong, I can't wait to see my students from las... Read more

I'm doing better today. I ate within my calorie range and I made sure to eat fresh veggies and fruits. I seem to do well with drinking enough water so that's all good. I went for a walk with my oldest son, 13, and we talked about sports, ... Read more
