Lunchbox Insanity
Friday, August 31, 2012      2 comments

My kids seem to lose or forget their lunchboxes very frequently. My son lost his yesterday, and I found out why this happens so often. All the kids in class who brought their lunch have to put their lunches in a big bin. This bin is then moved o... Read more
My Job & Thursday's Lunch
Wednesday, August 29, 2012      0 comments

I got a job at a gym. I'm super excited even though it's just for a few months. Tomorrow's lunch for the kids is a spinach tortilla with refried black beans, salsa, lettuce, and tomatoes; grapes; and a strawberry smoothie. The snack is an a... Read more

Tomorrow's lunch for the kids is meatless "meat" balls, colby-jack cheese, carrots and celery with ranch dip, and blueberry Special K fruit crisps. For their snacks they both have raisins, my son has whole grain Goldfish, and my daughter has Tri... Read more

Tomorrow both kids are having whole wheat cheese tortellini with cherry tomatoes in "sauce" made with extra virgin olive oil and Italian seasoning. They are also having Yo Crunch which is vanilla yogurt with applesauce and a crunchy cookie-like ... Read more
Kids' Lunches
Sunday, August 26, 2012      1 comments

Since tomorrow is the first day of school here I thought I'd share what I put in my kids' lunches. I have a son in 4th grade and a daughter in 2nd grade. I can try to do this every day if anyone is interested. I let them pick out what they want ... Read more
Why Reaching my Goal is Both Exciting and Terrifying
Monday, August 20, 2012      2 comments

I weigh myself on Mondays. I expected a loss of a pound this morning since I didn't lose anything last week. However, when I stepped on the scale it said that I was actually .2 pounds UNDER my goal. I didn't count the .2. Now this is where I sha... Read more
Jeans
Saturday, August 11, 2012      3 comments

I was walking around the mall today, and I ended up looking at jeans. I found some that I really liked, but I did not like the price. They were at Buckle. I have such a hard time finding jeans that fit me because I'm so short. I hate paying a to... Read more
Exercise
Tuesday, August 07, 2012      0 comments

I haven't done any exercise in awhile. After my surgery I had a good reason, but it's been over 2 weeks now. Maybe I will be able to do something tomorrow. My husband is off work all week, and I can't exercise when he's around. I'd much rather b... Read more
Surprise
Sunday, August 05, 2012      2 comments

My weight really surprised me today. I did not expect to see that number on the scale. I am 2 pounds down from last week. I know my mouth problems probably contributed to that, but my intake wasn't that much lower than usual. Tonight we're leavi... Read more
Oral Surgery Woes
Saturday, August 04, 2012      0 comments

I got my wisdom teeth extracted a couple weeks ago. I was put under general anesthesia. I woke up feeling a little dizzy, but otherwise I felt fine. A few days after my surgery I could barely open my mouth. Apparently the surgeon opened my jaw w... Read more
My "Blob"
Friday, December 02, 2011      0 comments

My period was really late this cycle. It finally came the day after I weighed in. Not surprisingly I didn't see any change on the scale. I feel so terrible during this time. I've been to a few doctors about it, but they just want to put me on an... Read more
1 Week
Wednesday, November 16, 2011      1 comments

It's been a week. I've lost a pound. I can't complain about that. I don't need to lose much anyway. A loss of one pound is definitely better than gaining. I don't really have much else to say. I really think I can be back in my regular jeans by ... Read more
Day 6
Monday, November 14, 2011      0 comments

Going out to dinner on Saturday night actually went really well. I only had one chip just so I could taste the salsa. The meal I got was one of the restaurant's healthy options, and it contained mostly veggies. I'm so glad I was able to avoid ea... Read more
Day 4
Saturday, November 12, 2011      0 comments

We're going out to eat at a Mexican place for a friend's birthday tonight. I've checked out the menu, and I know what I'm getting, but most Mexican places give you chips and salsa, and I know it will be hard for me to avoid eating any. I'm not g... Read more
Day 2
Thursday, November 10, 2011      1 comments

I am starting out really good. I seem to already feel better and have more energy. I'm sure that is mostly psychological, but I hope it sticks. The goals on here really help. I have had very little desire to snack on junk just because I know I h... Read more
