Well I started this Thursday, the day after my birthday. I am a newbie, so just kind of cruising and learning the site right now. I also got the stomach flu Thursday night and was out of town all weekend, so did not kill myself sticking to it. This morning I posted my eating journal for the first part of my day. Oh my goodness, I am floored. It is 11:00 and I only have about 350 calories left for the remainder of the day! I don't make poor choices, but I do endlessly pick. I have lots of things in my class room to snack on as well. My high school kids are always snacking and I just munch right along. No more. I am going to read the menu and be prepared to go into tomorrow ready to make a difference. I yelled at my 7 year old that she needed to have her stuff all ready the night before as she was making me late. I am no different. I need to read through the menu and know what to expect tomorrow. I need to pack my lunch so I don't rely on school lunches. I am in the last two weeks of coaching basketball cheerleaders, so hopefully things will slow down and I can start fitting in exercise. At this point it is all about making small changes first, and starting to feel better about myself again.
