A lot has changed since my last entry...and some things haven't! I have been teaching at my new school for 3 years now and absolutely love it here. Although the regular life stresses still exist. I had stopped exercising and eating within my cal... Read more
Need a pick-me-up
I'm trying very hard to get back into my routine and keep my weight down. Seems like every time I'm doing well, something pops up. I have had two kidney stone treatments (one invasive, one non-invasive) in the past 6 months. Being off my feet fo... Read more
Back on the wagon! Part Two :)
It feels so good to be back (full time) with SP. I've been doing well eating within my calorie limits set for me by SP and exercising regularly. I really need to get on here more often; I wish I had some "pen pals" on here. I think that support ... Read more
Back on the wagon!
It's good to be back! After going back and forth with weight (I lost 50 lbs about 4 years ago), I feel like I am finally on track. I am trying hard to keep with it this time! Of course, the fact that I am getting married in less than 4 months is... Read more
Again, again, again
I know the secret to changing is changing your lifestyle. Try as I might, I am continuously unsuccessful at doing that. I do so great for such a long time and then all of a sudden I'm gaining again. Then all of a sudden I'm depressed because not... Read more
Lead astray/Missing my baby
Okay, so I've gained a pound. Sounds like no big deal right? Wrong. What my coworkers don't understand is that this is how the cycle goes. I do well, lose weight. I get confident and begin to eat more. Then the one pound turns into 2 pounds, and... Read more
Big changes coming...
I have had my babies with me my whole life...well, their whole lives. Courtney will now be 18 on May 26 and graduate high school on June 4. Then she will be moving back down to the Houston area to live with her dad and go to college. I am ver... Read more
Had a wonderful day with my little girl (12 year old). I've been a little down since my 17 year old announced she is moving to her dad's house 200 miles away this summer. But my little girl and I have spent the day together while her big siste... Read more
Depression setting in...
Well I just found out today that my daughter who is a senior in high school will be moving in with her dad (who lives 200+ miles away) to go to the community college there next year. To make matters worse, her little sister, who has mentioned t... Read more
Mother-Daughter Bonding Time
I have been trying to get my 17 year old daughter to try out Jazzercise with me but she can't get over her embarrassment enough to even try it. My 12 year old asked to come out, which really surprised me. We went tonight and she loved it as mu... Read more
Another bittersweet day...
Yesterday started great. Woke up, had a healthy breakfast (whole grain english muffin with turkey bacon, scrambled egg, and a nonfat cheddar cheese slice). Then I went to Jazzercise with my neighbor-who is the one who got me hooked on it. After... Read more
Good day? Bad day?
Well, I have mixed emotions about my day. First, I am having struggles with my daughter and we had somewhat of a serious blowout today (on the way to the counselor, nonetheless). On the way home after, I was starving and very much not in the m... Read more
More lunches to freeze...
Just made ground beef, corn, and brown rice casserole and caramel apple/pineapple salad for dessert. The apple salad was awesome. Now more food to freeze for lunches. Yay!... Read more
Looking for Wedding Ideas...
I am getting married in October, on an extremely tight budget. I would greatly appreciate any "thrifty" but nice decorating ideas for the ceremony and/or reception. I am hoping for an outdoor wedding but will move inside in the case of bad wea... Read more

The past few days I have cooked a few SP recipes and froze single servings in cheap plastic containers I bought at Wal Mart. I will bring them to work during the week for lunches. So far I have 5 meals ready to go. I have chicken and dumpling... Read more
