With a little help...

Friday, August 10, 2012

My friend Hope and I followed each other to 7-11 at lunchtime. I was telling her that even though I had had all my allotted soda for a week, I was going to have some today because I'd been good and I wanted to dangit! She told me, "no excuses!" And I told her I didn't care. But she did make me pause and think as I went through the Taco Bell drive thru. And actually, water sounded pretty darn good! Thanks for making me pause, Hope :)

    Way to go--and congrats on having such a good friend, one who understands your goals enough to make you think about them and stick with it is a wonderful friend and a special gift.
    Speaking of, I have been so tied up with beginning of school that I haven't done much sparking. 2weeks ago, I lost 2.2 pounds but this week, I gained .4. That still puts me at a net loss of 2.6 since I/we started 3 weeks ago. I am happy with that. My reason for the small gain this week is pretty dumb too. I haven't been eating enough. I get so busy at work and at home that I don't eat enough and then I have a gain when it makes no sense at all. I know that this is all about taking care of myself and when I don't eat enough, I haven't done my job. My new schedule has so many kids on it that I go all day without a prep or a lunch time. I fix something to eat midday while I am teaching, but it isn't the same as having time away fromt he kids to really eat.
    Yesterday was our birthday party for Mitchell--and yes, I did have pizza again, but it left me too full for cake or ice cream. I figured that after the week I had for eating that a bit of a splurge would be good for my body. It needs to know that it won't starve, lol. I know that, but apparently my body isn't connected to my brain.
    Today is for me andmy family--not work. That is typically my school routine with Sunday being "sacred" and not about my job. I hope that the rain lets up and that we all can enjoy thi day.
    Enjoy your Sunday as well--when you have a free minute, let me know how things are going. Together, we shall make it to our goals.
    Gentle hugs,
