11 days to go
Thursday, May 03, 2012      0 comments

I think my stress will be lessened in 11 days when the school year is over. I've been walking at least 30 minutes a day and often 60 minutes or more. I'm hoping that I will see the scale going down with my effort.... Read more
Trying
Tuesday, May 01, 2012      0 comments

If a scientist was going to see if stress affects one's weight, then I'd be a great guinea pig. I've had a lot of stress lately and the scale isn't moving or is moving the wrong way. I'm trying to exercise more as a way to release the stress, ... Read more
Maintenance?
Tuesday, April 17, 2012      0 comments

I've reached my one year goal of "maintenance," but I'll admit I don't feel successful. I've put on 5 lbs since last year and I've been crazy busy that it's not coming off very fast! I have been putting life's stress ahead of my own health an... Read more
Crazy
Monday, April 09, 2012      0 comments

I have been on a crazy road of ups and downs. The eating is going pretty well and the exercise is going awesome. Thirty minutes, at least, of walking a day. Often times it's hiking so that helps with the muscle building. The weight is ... Read more
A new challenge
Thursday, March 29, 2012      0 comments

I have a one-to-one challenge with a fellow teacher. We are doing our own biggest loser since we both have gained some since last year's challenge. Hopefully, it will help me lose since I'm tend to be a little competitive! ... Read more
Back from vacation
Monday, March 26, 2012      0 comments

I'm back from vacationing in Arizona. I didn't gain, per say, but I didn't lose what I wanted either. A colleague of mine are doing our own mini version of the biggest loser. We both have put on some pounds since the contest last year and tho... Read more
I resisted temptation!

I did it! I did so well yesterday and tomorrow we are going on vacation. I found myself in that old place of, "I can eat today and start again tomorrow." I almost gave in to the chocolate chip muffin sitting in the teachers' lounge, but I did... Read more

Rebounding
Saturday, March 10, 2012      1 comments

Ok, I'm feeling much better. I lost 3 lbs overnight which tells me it was water weight. I did well on Friday and have been busy outside today. Washed the car inside and out, raked the lawn and bagged it, and cleaned a little in the house. The... Read more
Snowballing....
Thursday, March 08, 2012      2 comments

Well, it was a BAD week for my eating. I started slipping into old habits and the weight loss started snowballing....well, you know where. I'm hoping some of it is water weight, but I have NEVER gained like I did this week. Normally I'd just ... Read more
Beautiful day
Tuesday, March 06, 2012      0 comments

It's supposed to be in the mid 70's here in the Midwest today. It's a gorgeous day! We have the doors open to my classroom, I'm in a portable, to let in the warm air. I've already walked today, but I'm thinking extra recess may be in order tod... Read more
blown away
Sunday, March 04, 2012      2 comments

Wow, it was really windy here today. It literally moved me when I was walking. Not the easiest thing to do, but I did it anyway! My weight is fine, but my smallest pair of jeans are a little tight. That tells me that I need to get back to lo... Read more
Training....
Monday, February 27, 2012      1 comments

I wish I could say that I'm training for some big marathon or for a triathalon, but the truth is that I'm training a puppy. He's seven months old now and has just entered another fear period. For those of you that don't know what that is, pupp... Read more
Update and being bad
Saturday, February 25, 2012      1 comments

We had fun at the circus, however it's not like the circus I remember when I was a kid. It wasn't that exciting, but the kids enjoyed it. I did have one that had to sit part of it out because he spit in another child's face. I try to use natu... Read more
Life is like a circus
Thursday, February 23, 2012      3 comments

Today life is like a circus, not only because the weather is changing and I can tell it's going to be "one of those days." A day full of excited kids, energy galore, and some challenges. I guess everyday is like that in my classroom. Ho... Read more
