Hello All! I am doing good today, substituting HS math - Algebra 2, Trig, & Geometry. My energy level is pretty low, as I am not completely over a sinus cold that my youngest was more than happy to share with me. I am hoping to get back on track as soon as I can breathe without coughing. Maybe I'll do some time on the elliptical during the Biggest Loser premiere tomorrow. Hmm, I'll try.
The move is still in progress. We started cleaning out the basement Friday after school, and I have to admit that most of the stuff taking up all of the room is mine. I cannot believe that I have that much stuff, but so far it looks like my cross stitch stash has multiplied in captivity. Our garage sale is supposed to be Saturday, but as we haven't even touched the surface so far, it might be a two weekend garage sale. :) I wonder how many calories I will be burning lugging boxes upstairs and then sorting through them? Hehe, at least something good comes from going through a gazillion boxes!
Life should hopefully settle into a routine soon, as school has started, work is picking up. I can't sit on my rear like I do at home if they call me in to sub. Now if I could just eat less in the evenings.
Going to go for now. My students are playing Uno or talking quietly.

Well, I am back to subbing again! I have to say that I took the summer off of exercising on the elliptical, but I moved from a three story house to a trailer, so I think that I got my workouts!
My fibro is off the charts at the moment, as we switched insurance and I am currently trying to eek out what meds I have left. I think that I can survive until Oct 11th, but it may be a close thing.
Well, the bell has rung, so I must go! TTYL all!

School is out and I am not working, so I should be working out more, not less, right? Then why can't I drag my flabby self outta bed in the morning? I sleep in and still have to drag myself out of bed. The elliptical is gathering dust, and my will power is taking a dive.
Tomorrow is a new day. Let's hope I can get up and get at it.

Why is it that family reunions are so much fun to go to until it's time to eat? All the typical things were there - fried chicken, potato salad, green beans with bacon, sodas, cookies, brownies and of course, hours of sitting while you visit with long lost relatives.
Now that I have finished setting the scene, let me just say that I gained back 4 pounds in one weekend! UGH!!!!! I am so not happy with myself, but I only have myself to blame. I knew better than to eat what was there, and I could have brought something better to eat. I chose to go with the flow, eat what everyone brought, and now I am paying for it.
I weigh in tomorrow morning for the Biggest Loser Team, and I will be doing it with my head hanging! I was so proud last week! Down 5.2 pounds! And now, I'm back to 208.4 I so want to get below 200, and this is not the way to do it.
On the plus side, I did get up and exercise this morning, something that I hadn't done in two weeks. 50 minutes on the elliptical. My pain is starting to be in the tolerable range, so it's back to workouts for me.

Well, my day did not get off to a good start! My 2 year old decided that he was not going to sleep well, and kept me up half the night. Then when my alarm went off at 5, I shut it off and went back to sleep. GRR! I got up at 6, took a quick bath and got ready for a day substituting high school science. This class has had me as their sub many times, and there are a few that do not like me because I won't let them get away with things others have allowed. Today was one of those days. The teacher, knowing her class as she does, left them an assignment that would/should keep them busy so that I wouldn't have as many problems. Well, the guys saw fit to use the time to write totally bogus papers and turn it in to me. They don't care that they will get an F, they don't care that their teacher is going to give them detention. They just want to let it be known that they don't like me.
I have to shake off this funk and get myself in gear. The weather is icky here, rain expected soon and it is windy!!! I am going to get some walking in when hubby and I do the grocery shopping after school, and maybe some time on the elliptical when the boys are down for the night. Wish me luck and keep my sanity in your prayers. (Something tells me, I'm gonna need it!)
