Counting the days
I work for a local elementary school as a secretary. I am counting down the days until school ends. I think we are down to something like 30 some days. It has been an another extremely school year. Just can't wait.
My allergies must have been... Read more
Out to Dinner
DH and I are going out to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We are also taking DD21 and DS21. Not that I don't love my kids, but I had thought of a nice dinner just the two of us. We also changed the place. We were going to go to Applebee's, bu... Read more
Sorry to quote Adele, but that's what I was thinking. I have been only eating a 1/2 of pb & J for lunch. I have been weighing myself once a month and have been losing about 1 1/2 to 2 lbs. A lot of people lose that in a week, but I have really n... Read more
Another Week Trying
I keep trying different things. I did really try to cut back on my calories and eat a little different. I don't want to weigh myself until the end of the month so I don't get discouraged. I ate chicken salad for lunch two days for lunch this wee... Read more
Feeling Fat in February
I am feeling especially fat today. I pulled out an old pair of pants to wear today. It's been awhile since I last wore them. They did not fit very well. They felt much tighter than when I wore them last which was a couple of years ago. I started... Read more
Looking Forward to the month of February
I totally hate the month of January. This year it really wasn't too bad. We really didn't have horrible weather. The few days we did have really cold/snowy weather, I actually enjoyed. I wore some heavier sweaters and things I hadn't been able t... Read more
WEIGHT AND AGE
My cousin sent me some pictures of myself from when I was in my early to mid thirties. I was skinny. They regretfully sent me into a depression. What happened? I do not eat anymore than I did then. In fact, I probably eat less. I watched what I... Read more
What Happened to Summer?
Last month here in Pittsburgh, it was 70 degrees. Today it is about 10 degrees and there is wind. Don't like it at all.
Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. day and we get the day off from school/work.
I am still doing well food wise, but can't... Read more
Do Hollywood Actresses Eat?
Sorry for such a lame title, but I am watching the Golden Globes. Some of these women are nothing but bones. I mean seriously. I saw one woman on the "red carpet" and you could see her shoulder bones. That's just not normal. Oh well... I don't t... Read more
Today was the first day back to work after our 11 day Christmas vacation. When I first got into work I felt very miserable. This morning it was 25 degrees out and we had some snow flurries just to make the morning more special. But, as the day w... Read more
Doing Good Food Wise
I am proud that I did not binge on cookies, cakes and candy over the Christmas break. I did allow myself to eat on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but that was it.
Now, if I can get myself to move for at least 10 minutes a day, I will be goo... Read more
Car Shopping Most of the Day
DS24 needed a car, his car the engine blew up. We went to the dealer this afternoon and found him a really nice car. A 2007 Honda Civic with about 70,000 miles on it for a good price. We talked to the dealer about financing and then went back to... Read more
I have had a horrible headache almost all afternoon. Work has been crazy busy as the other secretary has not been in.
I wrote out my Christmas cards, but didn't address them, I have to look for my address book.
I want to take a nice, warm b... Read more
SHOPPING, SHOPPING AND MORE SHOPPING
We went to 12:00 Mass this morning and then went shopping. We went to two different Malls and two different Burlington Stores. I think we are done except for stocking stuffers that can be bought at the last minute. We got some good bargains, som... Read more
DO NOT WATCH TV
Since it is Saturday, I have been leisurely watching tv. Well, I realized something today that my mother always told me. Stay away from tv. All they do is advertise food and not good food. As I was watching tv it made me hungry for some chocolat... Read more
