A new day

Tuesday, September 22, 2015      8 comments

I have learned I need to take each day one at a time with this student. Today was a fairly good day. Such a blessing! He only hit 8 times. And no one bled. Sadly that is a good day. Saying my prayers that tomorrow is as good as today.... Read more

A better day!

Thursday, September 17, 2015      4 comments

This morning as I was getting ready I was reading a story about someone who had helped a homeless man. The man stated that he was grateful for the help and that he had prayed for help. His prayer was answered. As I read this story I, of... Read more

Moving forward (?)

This new student may be the single greatest challenge of my 16 year teaching career. I know I have the skills and understanding, but I am struggling to get through to him. It is hard because he is so aggressive and puts all my other students a... Read more

Labor Day over

Monday, September 07, 2015      5 comments

It was a busy weekend filled with food, fun, family, and friends. I surprised myself several times by stopping eating or turning down food. This is not to suggest I was a great eater all weekend, but I did not eat like I normally would. This ... Read more

Labor Day Weekend

Here's to the official end of summer. I need to get myself into action and get things done!... Read more

Waiting for rock bottom

Tuesday, September 01, 2015      5 comments

Last night I tried on some new pants I bought in the hopes they would fit. Of course they didn't which really wasn't a surprise to me. It did discourage me though, but not nearly that badly for I finished off the last little bite of fudge with... Read more

Memorial Day

Sunday, May 24, 2015      7 comments

As Memorial Day comes upon us, I am reminded that my cousin, Jeremy, gave his life in Iraq so that we could continue to be free. He will forever be my hero. I hope everyone reflects on those who we have this day set aside for. Remember our fa... Read more

Cinco de Mayo

Tuesday, May 05, 2015      3 comments

Today is May 5th and for the last two days I have been binge eating like crazy. I am sure it is because I am tired. I really should just go to bed and not allow myself to catch my second wind. And of course, once I do, what do I do to stay aw... Read more

April is here

Thursday, April 02, 2015      2 comments

It's April 2nd. I continue to deal with the rash. Can you believe that?! Eczema they tell me. A virus caused the flair. I am happy it is almost gone, but I hope it goes away soon so I can wear capris and shorts. I need to get some weight o... Read more far? eh

It's four days into the new year and I continue to suffer with this body rash that will not go away. It makes any activity uncomfortable, especially sleeping and exercise. I am hopeful that it is starting to lessen (at least on my right arm). ... Read more

Mission: Zip up the dress

Sunday, September 21, 2014      6 comments

In just 13 days my son will get married. (It is not an overly happy time for me...long stressful story.) I finally found a dress Friday. It has been a difficult process for me, but I am happy to check that off my list. Now I need it to zip u... Read more

Getting back on track....

Saturday, January 25, 2014      4 comments

So after a month of feeling blah and eating junky, I am back on track for healthier eating and being. I cannot say I have been 100% on, but I certainly feel better than before and for that I am happy. I even went swimming for almost an hour to... Read more

Seeking consistency...

Saturday, January 11, 2014      4 comments

Has anyone seen mine? How about my willpower? That seems to be missing too. I thought I was doing good and had them both intact, but sadly I was wrong. What is the issue with me? I can go days and be on top of my game and then on thing push... Read more

Tough week

Thursday, August 08, 2013      9 comments

I have been like a whirlwind cleaning and purging my home of stuff the last two days. The stuff that I have accumulated is overwhelming and this cleaning is long overdue. While the two rooms I have concentrated on are not finished yet, they a... Read more

On January 7th of this year I entered into the Biggest Loser competition at work. Determined to do something this time (I only lost a few pounds the last time we did it), I stuck to good eating habits and tried hard. I have a bad habit of plat... Read more
