Being the mother of teenage boys takes more patience than I have most days. Today was one of those days. Instead of eating when I wasn't hungry, I went to the library. Now it's after 9:00 and I need to eat a small dinner. Hope eating this la... Read more
I was SO hungry today
Sunday, November 15, 2009      4 comments

I was so hungry that I cheated. I ate some pretzel chips. I'm glad they were in individual serving packs or I would have eaten the whole bag. Good thing I didn't have any candy in the house. When I looked back through my journal I realized i... Read more

I've said it before, so most of you already know that I am not a huge fan of eating meat, chicken & fish. Each morning when I see the scale giving me a lower number or the tape measure closing further around any section of my body, I was able t... Read more

...and I have nobody to blame but myself. I had my Physical Science students building molecule models with marshmallows. I packed chocolate covered orange peels for my son's lunch and he never eats in at school. He always waits to eat... Read more
My first gain this round
Sunday, November 08, 2009      3 comments

Last round I was losing 1/2 - 1 lb every day during the first 12 days. Then I stalled for the rest of the round. I stuck to the diet. I wasn't sure if it was because I was hiking 6 miles a day or because I really didn't do well on the load da... Read more

Thursday is always a hectic day, but rewarding. I am busy all day, but I always see progress. Today was no different. I started work with my usual coffee & apple. The apple I brought to work was no good. I took 2 bites and threw it away... Read more

Where did the weekend go?
Sunday, November 01, 2009      1 comments

I feel like the white rabbit. Even with an "extra" hour, there still isn't enough time in the day to get everything done. I spent so much time helping my kids with their homework, that I have no energy left to clean the house or do my own "hom... Read more
It's Friday already!
Friday, October 30, 2009      6 comments

So I am realizing that the biggest challenge I have to healthy eating is my job. When I had an office job, I would sit at my desk every day and graze on snacks and I was never hungry for a real meal. Now I am teaching. I am so busy from t... Read more

Like most teachers, I went back to work in September. I have not had the time to get on the computer at work and I have even less time at home since I am spending that time with my own kids. After I went back to work, I had a more difficul... Read more
