Gluten Free Thanksgiving
Saturday, November 27, 2010      4 comments

It has been forever since I've blogged... my work schedule is not very condusive to reflection time (or any other time). Since my last post 8/29, I have discovered that I am, if not a Celiac Disease sufferer (sp?) am most definately gluten into... Read more
Biggest Loser
Sunday, August 29, 2010      0 comments

I decided to enter in the Biggest Loser contest for the Working Out at Home team. There's incentive. I rode bikes with the family (check) I ate clean for TWO days (check) I didn't plan ahead, though. Back to school/work tomorrow..... Read more
How many times to "start over"?
Saturday, August 28, 2010      0 comments

This must be my 8th or 10th time to get started again... why could I lose 40 pounds 2 years ago and keep on it like nothin' doin' and yet now I can't stay with a plan more than 1/2 a day??? I'm reflecting on what I did then and trying to figure... Read more
AMAZING day!
Saturday, May 22, 2010      1 comments

It's been a week since my last entry... the last week of school is SO crazy and hectic. I didn't track and exercised only once, but I ate clean mostly (okay, had a slice of ice cream cake - slap on the hand), drank all my water (yippee!) and ma... Read more
Celebration!
Saturday, May 15, 2010      1 comments

Well - so much has happened and yet so little. But first, my celebration... I made it - 1 week of eating clean! I started last Saturday and I made it 'til today (Saturday night). I feel really good about it. My insulin levels are down (... Read more
3 days down...
Monday, May 10, 2010      0 comments

Weekends are always easier to get myself on track. I know it's the opposite for most people, but I work in an environment where it's all about the junk food. And, thank you very much, the healthy ones bring all their junk to work so they won't... Read more
Picking Myself Up and Dusting Myself Off
Saturday, May 08, 2010      4 comments

Well, it was the wake-up call I needed. A friend sent me a picture of myself with 2 colleagues (head-shots only) and man was I appalled! My face looks almost like it did at my heaviest. I now officially gained back 1/2 the weight I lost 2 yea... Read more
Lessons Learned
Wednesday, November 11, 2009      0 comments

It has been a VERY tough week. I haven't made the best choices in this arena. But, to my credit (very little), I haven't completely failed either. 1.) Grades were due on Monday. I worked my tail off all weekend to get accurate grades in th... Read more
Not a single piece...
Friday, November 06, 2009      1 comments

Yep... two people brought BIG ol' bags of left-over Halloween candy in to work and left them there. And I haven't had a single piece! None of my kids' candy either. (We're trying to find somewhere to take it to send to the troops, actually.) ... Read more

Prepping for the remainder of the week....
Wednesday, November 04, 2009      0 comments

I am getting into the swing of when to exercise. Since I have "early teaching days" either 2 or three days a week (depends on the week), I'm still figuring out how to work around those and still get the exercise in. Sadly, I'm thinking that th... Read more
Not so bad...
Monday, November 02, 2009      0 comments

Pre planning helped and I wasn't in too bad of shape today. I still felt the need to graze after lunch, but fortunately I had some roasted unsatlted almonds and some 100% fruit/veggie bits in my desk to curb the craving! I'll be okay tomorrow ... Read more
Nervous About Tomorrow
Sunday, November 01, 2009      0 comments

Fall break is over. I go back to work tomorrow. I am nervous. Not about my job, per se... I know what I'm doing. I just stress eat. And school is a low-grade, constantly stressful situation. And there is ALWAYS something lurking about. I kn... Read more
I didn't raid the Halloween candy!
Saturday, October 31, 2009      3 comments

My day was interesting... my husband took us all out for ice cream. So much for clean eating! But, we went to a local, home-made place that doesn't use HFCS or other nasty stuff. It's still bad bad bad for you, but not AS bad as, say, Dairy Q... Read more
What's a "spookable?"
Friday, October 30, 2009      1 comments

I forgot to set the timer/alarm last night, so slept in. Which means my 5yo was up before me (at 5:30am mind you!) which means exercise didn't happen. Oh well... I guess I'll call this my rest day. Right now dh took the kiddos out for sleddin... Read more
