it is now time to recommit myself to my goals. This week became the week where I relaxed my "rules". I became complacent and watched myself bend the rules. As a result I gained a little under a pound of weight. I went from 221.4 to 222.2... Read more

All I have to do is remember my goals and I'm sure I can accomplish them. I haven't sewn for 60 minutes this past week, but there's still today. I weighed myself and I can see the next "decade" of weight that I am anxious to live in. ... Read more

A three day weekend! I am so grateful to have a little extra breathing room! I have work that I have to do for school, but that extra day to accomplish it is sweet relief. The pace of the beginning of the school year is dizzying! My l... Read more

The school planning for this week is in place. I turned in my lesson plan on Friday. And the meal planning is shaping up. I went grocery shopping yesterday and it was quite liberating to shop according to my plan. I went up and down the aisl... Read more

The reason that I have limited my Spark Team involvement to one team is the time discipline. And the reason I have chosen Positive Bloggers is because I have come to realize that the most important aspect, in my opinion, of the Healthy Lifestyl... Read more

The sign at the insurance office down the street states (for this week): "No struggles no strength." I made it through yesterday's "talent acquisition" event. So interesting to be on the other side of the interview. I did my best to give... Read more

My principal asked me to fill in for her at a teacher recruiting event. I think I'm flattered that she asked me to do this for her. I think. It's on the other side of the city, so it will be quite a trip I am to collect resumes and schedule ... Read more

Monday, August 05, 2013      5 comments

Today I suffered a momentary lapse in the confidence department. I dreamt last night that I left my classroom unattended because I was out to lunch with a friend who just couldn't manage to get me back to school on time. Nightmare! The feelin... Read more
