Now what can you find wrong with me?
Sunday, October 09, 2011      0 comments

I never thought I'd have this "problem," but I'm coming across it more often than I'd like. I am tired of people telling me I'm skinny and that I need to stop losing weight. I assure them that I've been maintaining for almost six months now. ... Read more
Kids' Day
Saturday, October 08, 2011      0 comments

Today was a great day! I went shopping with my oldest, girls ages 16 and almost 15. We had a ball looking for sales and I'm lucky that both are thrifty! Then, I went and watched my youngest play football. They lost, but it was a fun time... Read more
Frustrated
Wednesday, October 05, 2011      1 comments

I am ready for bed. I am frustrated with my job and my kids. The only thing going "well" is my eating and that I'm staying in my weight range. I used to eat when I was frustrated, but now I've learned other ways to deal with my frustratio... Read more
Horse show
Saturday, October 01, 2011      0 comments

Spent the day at a horse show with my daughter and her horse. Had a lot of fun and stayed in calories even with partaking in a little candy and a hot dog! It was a long day, but a good experience. I even pulled a full two horse trailer for th... Read more
Running on empty
Wednesday, September 28, 2011      0 comments

I'm tired. I have four kids that are all in activities and after playing taxi, running them from one activity to another, I'm tired. I'm running on empty. I'm eating, but my normal caffeine pick-me-up isn't picking me up as usual. I know I n... Read more

I am happy that it is Friday and look forward to a weekend with my family and friends. I am Happy that I am still maintaining my weight loss. As a matter of fact, I am only six tenths into the lowest end of my range. I am HAPPY that a... Read more
Zoo
Wednesday, September 21, 2011      1 comments

Yesterday my class went to the zoo. Wow, were they worn out. (Ok, I was a bit tired, too.) We hit almost every corner and our zoo is BIG. It was a great workout with plenty of hills and stairs. I felt great and continued that trend by eatin... Read more
Trying to exercise
Monday, September 19, 2011      1 comments

I am tired and I don't feel like exercising. I'm going to force myself to go for my walk and then do some crunches on the exercise ball. I'm hoping that if I log the exercise first then I'll actually follow through. Wish me luck!... Read more
Homecoming
Sunday, September 18, 2011      0 comments

My oldest two kids, daughters, went to homecoming last night. It's strange having two high school age kids. Neither had a date and went with groups of friends. (The youngest isn't old enough to date, yet, anyway. It's sixteen in our house.) ... Read more
Butt and a birthday
Saturday, September 17, 2011      0 comments

Well, during this past week I had another birthday. It was a nice day/week with plenty of cake. (A hard temptation for me.) I did have several pieces, but made sure they were small. I stayed in my calorie range and my weight range for the we... Read more

Today all of the staff at my school are wearing pink in honor of one of our teachers that was just diagnosed with breast cancer. We are rallying behind her and have created a team for the Komen Walk in October. It's really neat to see a sea of... Read more
Back in the saddle again!

Hi. I'm happy to report that I'm back to riding horses. It took over a month after I lost my beloved mare to cowgirl up, but I've done it! I've ridden quite a bit this past week and it feels right, again. I also went "exploring" with my ... Read more
Not giving up
Wednesday, September 07, 2011      2 comments

I wish I could say this was about my journey here. I guess in part it is. It's more about my new "class" this year. I have some real challenges both behaviorally and academically. (I teach in a self-contained special education class.) But, I... Read more
Lots of exercise
Sunday, September 04, 2011      1 comments

Today was full of exercise. I walked 3.20 miles with a friend to check out her husband's GPS "toy" that you wear on your wrist. We did it in less than 45 minutes. I was happy with that pace, especially since I was wearing cowboy boots! I had... Read more
Quality time and contentment
Saturday, September 03, 2011      0 comments

I spent some quality time with my oldest daughter and oldest son. We went shopping and grabbed lunch. It was a nice time, especially since my oldest is a junior in high school and will be out of the house all too soon. My oldest son is adjust... Read more
