Thank you for the comment on my Insanity blog. You are so right in terms of how important Nutrition is with any program you choose. I try to keep remembering the phrase "You can't out exercise a bad diet". My problem is that I let events derail me. This will be my focus in Phase 2.
Congratulations on 35 days!! I think that is soooo awesome. Thank YOU so much for the comment you left on my blog. It really gave me a lift.
It's so ironic that my 2 special-needs kids were my excuse for bingeing for too many years. Now they are my motivation for staying binge free, because they will need their "mommy" for a very long time.
Seeing you make it through Rosh Hashana gives me hope I can make it through the holidays I will be celebrating in November and December. Thanks for being such an awesome Spark's friend, ~j~
Funny you should say that about your children being treated as if they come from different homes!! My daughter has everyone loving her, makes friends easily and has her teachers saying all nice things about her! And of course I like that as she is my little girl and I love her. But I then have to put up with teachers talking about my son like he is a thug from a bad home!! As you say, they have the same upbringing! And I love the way my son thinks and I know there is so much more to him than the teachers see or want to see. They are good with students who 'fit' in their box!
And I agree with you about homework. I think teachers have been trained to teach. Parents haven't. Lots of parents haven't the time, or educational background or indeed the interest to help with homework. So I feel it creates a two tiered educational system as it puts those whose parents are not in a position to help them as at a disadvantage. If all work was done in school it would create a more even start for kids. 1380 days ago
