A Goal For This Month!

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Yep, that is my challenge to myself for the rest of this month. I began today and it was a I had to stop myself from reaching for a chocolate chip cookie. The WORST thing I ever did was teach Amber how to cook/bake. emoticon She made chocolate chips today, from scratch. But I persevered and WON!!

1 Day Down, 14 To Go!

By the way, I got an email this morning saying the summer school STAAR results have been mailed out and I should be receiving them no later than Friday. PLEASE, keep your fingers, eyes, toes, etc. crossed--for Amber's sake emoticon!

Have a good evening!

    Wow, Michele, that's an AWESOME goal. I'm on the South Beach diet which, during Phase 1 is very similar to your NO BAD SNACKS! Good luck and keep us informed on your progress!!!

    Giving up all those things is a challenge, but will really help you lose the weight! I wish you success! I know emoticon

    Wow! Good for you! This challenge would be so hard for me to do...I mean biscuits...peanut butter...these are two of my comfort foods. I do limit my intake but I don't know if I could give them would be a true test of my willpower that's for sure.

Good luck to Amber! Those tests are so tough...on parents, students and teachers. My son (JJ) struggles with them every year.
