Well, school is out and I'm back! I've picked up the last 2 Oxygen Magazine issues that I didn't have time to read, have started re-reading the "Eat Clean Diet" book and am ready to go. I weighed myself this morning so that I've got a place to... Read more
Well... still out of control. Last night I picked up Tosca Reno's book again and started re-reading it. I need to.
Today is my last day with students. It's my crazy all-day day with no break whatsoever. Hopefully my students will allo... Read more
New Plan (short term)
I've only got 3 mintues so I'll make this short and sweet. I've gained back 4 pounds, which now makes my original goal weight of 145 in mid-June impossible. But things have spun out of control, and I can only take charge of so much. So here's... Read more
Really tough and not getting better
I don't know where to start. I guess that'll be Sunday when I got a call from one of my APs and good friend informing me that a colleague had died. Not just any teacher in a school of 100+ teachers, but a teacher in our department, who sat in ... Read more
Well, another week down and I'm feeling better. For some reason, the stress cravings/temptations to binge have cleared and I'm clean for 3 days now. I'm down to 151 now, and not sure why. I haven't really been watching my calories (although I... Read more
Exhausted & Still Struggling
Only have a few minutes to blog, so I'm gonna make the most of it.
My life is CRAZY. I know everyone's is, but it seems like mine comes in tides. When I made the decision to eat clean, I also made the decision to cut out some of the crazi... Read more
Today... not bad, not great. Got up and ran. That was good. Ate 'okay' - had a cookie that I shouldn't have, but only 1.
I have entered into the 'relaxed zone' - where everyone is complementing me on my weight loss - telling me how gre... Read more
She saved my life...
and I had to tell her goodbye today.
15 years ago I was in such a deep depression that to look back on it today scares me. Every day was overcast,. Living was a chore. I could no longer hear God, see God, feel God. I never contemplat... Read more
I'm feeling crazy again - school, school and more school. Man have I made some not good decisions.
Spring break was great - time with kids, did taxes (okay - that wasn't so great), exercised, worked outside and in doing garden work. And I... Read more

Funny thing about the scale
Okay, so I spent over a week stressing about the fact that the scale wouldn't move, even though I was doing the right thigs. NOt an ounce. Not 0.1 pounds. EVERY morning 157.0. I started to wonder - doesn't your body fluctuate a LITTLE bit fr... Read more
Pasta and Butter
I have to admit - there are a few things I REALLY miss from my "dirty-eating" days, and butter is probably #1 or 2. I know, it's okay to use OCCASIONALLY and IN SMALL AMOUNTS, but I haven't done it. Until tonight.
*Baked Salmon ... Read more
I'm doing well. Yes, it's Easter. Day of chocolate bunnies, chocolate easter eggs, etc. etc. But we filled the eggs this year with non-sugary (although not clean either) items... Goldfish crackers and Teddy Grahams. They got a chocolate East... Read more
Week 4 of the C25K program didn't go as well today as it did on Sunday. I had a hard time breathing during the 0.5 mile stretches (did okay on the 0.25 stretches though). I think my inhaler is running low, though, and that might be my problem.... Read more
I switched to week 4 (FINALLY!) of the C25K program today. I felt it, for sure, but had no trouble breathing until the very end. By then I was so close I pushed through. Yeah! I really worked my legs on Friday, though, so my lower half feels... Read more
