Nothing profound is coming to mind yet. I am feeling very relaxed today... I know what I need to do this afternoon and evening, and I got a lot done this morning already. The pizza dough is thawing for dinner, the laundry is folded, and my lun... Read more
Batman has Joker, Bullwinkle has Boris, and Superman has Lex Luther. I have cereal.
A while back, I realized that it was just about impossible for me to be successful at sticking to ONE serving of cereal as an after dinner sweet. So I sto... Read more
I just looked over what I had planned to do yesterday. And although I did some of it, I didn't come close to doing all of it.
Spent about an hour with the flooring guy yesterday. We brought home some samples so we have a lot to do this we... Read more
TGI Rest Day!
Today has been the day I've been working toward. The day that I kept in mind while I was sweating buckets in spin class, while I was cursing my plyometrics instructor for making us do "just one more set!" of air jacks, and listening to my abs s... Read more
It's a Chili Sunday!
Gasp - there was no more chili in the freezer! I am a chili-loving maniac, so I was really sad to see that it was all gone. This afternoon I re-stocked our supply, so now we have topping for pasta, rice and pizza (chili on pizza with some bana... Read more
Teaching Philosophy and The Scale
I am almost done with my Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction. The courses have been very thought-provoking, and they have also been quite progressive. Our textbooks ask us to think about the current state of education, and do we reall... Read more
Suggested Serving Size and other thoughts...
I planned on having some hot cereal this morning, but instead I had my more filling breakfast of toast and an egg. Thinking about the hot cereal made me think about labels of food - the suggested serving size of the hot cereal is 1/4 cup dry. ... Read more
The Pluses of Planning
I'm almost finished with my second week of my New Year's Experiment - waking up at 5:00, doing my housework/ lunch packing/ gym clothes packing in the morning, going to the gym after school, and taking the evening to relax guilt-free. These pas... Read more
OMG Someone asked me how much I weighed!
But I actually didn't freak out! I was able to tell her without feeling sick. One of my small, totally shallow goals was to be able to tell someone my weight without being embarrassed. I had forgotten all about that goal until yesterday when ... Read more
I am so lucky.
My honey is a chef. A very good chef. And lucky for me, he likes to cook at home.
His birthday was yesterday - we spent Sunday and yesterday celebrating with some really delicious food. Sunday night was striped bass (YUM), cauliflower soup,... Read more
No more Spark Guilt!
I just read a Spark Buddy's blog about goals; one of those goals was to stay active on Spark. This goal got me thinking about my own activity on SparkPeople. Toward the end of 2009, instead of seeing Spark as an essential tool to getting health... Read more
Day 2 - New Plan
Today I got that wonderful phone call - "We have a two hour delay today." I don't like snow days so much, we have to make them up in June. But delays? Give me a delay anytime. Wahoo!
Here's how Day 2 went.
- Woke up at 5:00, got a ton of ... Read more
Day 1 - New Plan
Last night was my first night of evening gym time in quite a while.
I wasn't thinking about what I had to do at work while I was at the gym
It wasn't 6:00am
Got to see a different crowd
When I got home I could relax and have a ... Read more
Rethinking the plan of attack
This morning I was all ready to go to Spin class... had my gym gear on, had the car warming up... got in my car and it had trouble getting up the hill in the snow (just flurries, but they were those slippery flurries). My spin class runs until ... Read more
Seriously? Lamb and all?
So today was the day I decided to try my little experiment - no walnuts on my salad, a mix of milk and water with my hot cereal, less hot cereal...
Honey calls and says he doesn't have to work tonight. He decided to make the lamb tonight. O... Read more
