And now for a happier blog!

I haven't been on in awhile. So two blogs in one day to make up!
The other was focused on the Biggest Loser. Holy crap! Read that if you want.
This one is about other stuff. I have slowly been losing the weight. My fat pants are still my pants. My skinny clothes are taunting me in my closet. I WILL get my a$$ back in those pants!
I know I fail on food most of all -- so in order to get my head right, I am doing less working out (also super busy!) and more focusing on what I put into my body. I know no matter how much I work out, it won't help me if I eat five candy bars a week… which I was doing.
Food is my weakness, so food is my focus. Until I can get that in check, I'm not stressing about not getting in my cardio. Not that I'm not moving. I've been walking more, and working more. Both schools are back in session. Now on Mondays and Wednesdays I work from 8am to 10pm. It sucks! I teach two lectures in the morning, lunch, then teach a biology lab, then go to the other school and teach a chemistry lab. I'm standing more. I'm walking more. I burned over 3000 calories just teaching and walking on those 14 hour days. That's nuts! The other days I'm working on trying to catch up on grading and assignments and papers and blackboard and homework and prepping. I really did take on A LOT this semester. Three classes and four labs is a lot. Hopefully it will equal a good paycheck, but again, I won't know until the end of February how much I'm being paid.
Lindenwood has been good. I need to get my job application in. They've had me start picking out all of my supplies ;-) So either I'm going to have an awesome lab set up, or the newbie is. The faculty keep talking like I've got the job, but I don't want to sound too confident.
So that's it - I did my quick update. Now back to creating Blackboard quizzes!
