JENZEN2013's SparkPeople Blog JENZEN2013's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community And the challenge begins!!! ok so wednesday a MASSIVE sinus infection rocked my body. I had fever, snot, snot and more snot. JUst to gross you out i spent 15 min in the shower vomiting it up! BAD STUFF! Got lucky to be sent home from work. We only have two subs and they were suppose to be there for two other teachers but the workshop got canceled. Thank god! So 5 meds and a LOT of sweat later I feel much better. I actually lost 8 lbs in 2 days from non eating and sweating. NOT a good thing. I have been reintroducing foo... Fri, 3 May 2013 22:01:33 EST warrior dash just a small thought today. Over the weekend I saw a page for something called the Warrior dash that is going to be here in arkansas in may. I looked at the website and all the event pics and I love it! Warrior dash looks like something the military would use for an obstacle course. There are mud pits, fire pits, climbing walls and nets etc. I WANT TO DO THIS! I am now making one of my long term goals to be fit enough to do Warrior Dash next year! I know it will be a struggle but i think it i... Mon, 29 Apr 2013 10:37:29 EST did you ever have one of those days.... today is that day. Today is that day that sucked. Kids , parents, weather and emotions all crazy today! I really feel like I just floated thru today. I feel like I want to laugh, cry, scream and yell all at the same time! really wish that i had better support at home so that I could express this to the one person that is suppose to be there for me. Please let it be a better day tomorrow! on an upside I have lost 2 lbs this week and I have not cheated at all since sunday. <em>39</em> Wed, 24 Apr 2013 16:57:10 EST teachers eat!!! ok so before we got the new classrooms we were not in the elementary school building. We were in the old library away from everyone and life was good. Now we are moved into the elementary building next to kindergarten and I have come to realize that TEACHERS EAT ALL DAY! Now I'm not saying all teachers but the ones that I work with are always eating. Everyday since we moved in the come by with a note for a new potluck the next day or passing out something that someone has made and if you ever... Tue, 9 Apr 2013 19:24:55 EST Dinner was Yummy! I had decided that I would only blog once or twice a week but a SP member commented that I should blog more often even everyday just to be accountable. (thank you Mormonnomore2) I have been making a SP cookbook recipe pretty much everyday since I got it 2 weeks ago and today I made the Green Curry Chicken and it was yummy!!! I would add red pepper to make it hotter because I like the heat and maybe some carrots but it was really good. It feels great to come home from work and spend a hour mak... Mon, 8 Apr 2013 19:20:12 EST We the people.... I wasn't going to blog till next week but as I sit here browsing Sparkpeople I have noticed that we are all basically the same person. Now I don't mean that literally, I just mean that everyone on here in one way or another is having a struggle of some sort. When I first started SP i really and honestly felt that I was the only person who was having the BIG struggle to lose weight. I know that sounds naive but it is an honest feeling. I started reading other blogs and post and realized that n... Fri, 5 Apr 2013 22:45:50 EST AWESOME! ok So today is only Wednesday but man is it a good week!!! We moved into the new classrooms Monday and now 20 kids doesn't feel like 120. The old room was only licensed for 15 but we had to have 20 in it and now the room is big enough for 28 and we only have 20. Trust me when I tell you it is NICE!!!! ON top of that I am down 3 more lbs and I have NOT cheated yet! I take my lunch everyday and I have been making a sparkpeople cookbook recipe every night! My energy seems to be high right now an... Wed, 3 Apr 2013 17:15:06 EST Back to school OK so we made it thru spring break and now we are back in school. Gotta say that I am ok with that. It was really hard over spring break to stay good. My spouse is not a good support system and likes to bring things into the house that aren't ok. Do you know how hard it is on you when you have made a point to be good all day and then your spouse decides that bacon would be a good afternoon snack. Bacon is one of my biggest pit falls and i try to not have it in the house but apparently there w... Mon, 25 Mar 2013 16:38:21 EST Woohoo! ok just want to be proud of myself for a minute! I teach and every wednesday in the cafeteria is Chicken nugget day. Now i'm not sure if your aware or not but chicken nuggets ROCK especially when they are served with mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans and homemade wheat rolls! I would just like it known that I DID NOT eat the nuggets today. I had the green beans but I worked them into the plan that SP had made for me! IT WAS A CHALLENGE NOT TO EAT THE NUGGETS!!! But i did it!!! I am so proud... Wed, 13 Mar 2013 17:46:03 EST 1 week down. ok so today is tuesday and as of yesterday I am 1 week closer to my goal. I cant say that it hasn't been easy but it hasn't been life threatening. I had quite a few days last week that required eating out and could not be avoided but I think I made good decisions. I tried to find out the restaurant ahead of time and look at the online menu. I'm pretty happy with my decisions. I purchased the New spark book, cookbook and received my free workout videos in the mail. Looking forward to integrati... Tue, 12 Mar 2013 07:45:03 EST
