These boots are made for zipping

Friday, February 06, 2009      4 comments

Last fall, I bought a super cute pair of boots. They were "extended-calf" (THANK YOU J. Crew!) so I thought everything was great. I have a pair in brown that fit great. But these new boots were supposed to zip up. I tried them on, and the zi... Read more

Hm

I am feeling very blah. All I feel like doing is crawling under the blanket and going to sleep. But there were some good parts of today. I did not eat a single cookie that the librarian brought in and put on the faculty room table. It's ... Read more

I got the phone call last night that school was closed, so I got a little extra sleep last night. Cleared off the car late morning, looked at some vacation info, and read a little bit. I figured out a new goal, too. I am going to San Francis... Read more

Argh - the popcorn again!

Tuesday, January 27, 2009      0 comments

Tonight when I got home from the gym, I was craving a salty treat, so I made some microwave popcorn. I ate the whole bag. And it wasn't a 100 calorie bag, it was an entire bag of Act II Butter Popcorn. It was so good. It's not often at all t... Read more

Usually Thursday is my weigh-in night at the gym. I've been trying to stick to the scale there because a) it's a beam scale (Dr.'s office - style) b) it's what I got my starting weight from but this morning I stepped on my scale at ho... Read more

Oprah and Me

Tuesday, January 20, 2009      0 comments

On Oprah's "Best Life Week" she talked about how one she lost the weight, she thought "I got it." Today I finally understood what she meant. I haven't lost that much weight (8 pounds) but I feel the "I get it" creeping in. "I get it" for me ... Read more

I have been reading a lot of blogs and posts about people getting the "did you lose weight?" comment. I read them and smiled and thought how nice! Yesterday at school, one of the teachers asked me if I had lost weight. For the longest time I t... Read more
