Winding down January
This has been just an insanely tiring month. Between my decision to take tons of classes at the gym to jump-start my 2010 and everything else that's going on in my life, I am feeling exhausted. I've been productive, so that's good, but I am de... Read more
Just staying accountable.
This blog is just so I know what the heck to do today.
Drink all my water
East a healthy dinner
Cross something off my to-do list
Drink my tea at lunch so I don't eat a Luna bar just for the heck of it
I LOVE Luna bars. The prob... Read more
Breaking down the overwhelmingness
My honey and I are planning a big change in the summer involving a big move. Last night we talked about what we needed to do, and I just felt this wave of anxiety come over me. There is so much to do! The worst part is I'm not really sure wha... Read more
It was symphony weekend with my mom. We have season tickets, so I drive down about once a month. We have a great time - have a little dinner, do some mother-daughter bonding... the only downside is that the whole weekend is filled with restaur... Read more
Thinking way ahead...
It's almost time for me to start planning my February plan of attack. January was (still is) lots of classes at the gym, trying to get a jump on my fitness for the beginning of the year; trying to shake it up a little bit. I have really enjoye... Read more
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
