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

So far, So good
So far no sugar today. Day 1. I had the major sugar cravings, but I decided to munch almonds instead. Ive had 20 almonds so far, but at least they've got some nutritional value. Plus with TOM here, I'm just hungrier. As long as I'm putting ... Read more
