So far, so good
So I completed day 1 of my "start over" yesterday. I exercised really well (cardio) and - this is the biggie - ate clean all day. Not that I wasn't tempted to hint about ice cream after dinner - I was. But I didn't. (It helped that the field... Read more
Okay - so I'm going back through all my old blog entries and realized JUST HOW MANY TIMES I've started over... Ay-yay-yay. What to do?
This time will be different? How? I know what to do (I've even done it before) but the questions is g... Read more
It's been 10 years already - my how the time has flown! I wanted to have lost all the weight by now - but that hasn't happened. I am close, though, and it WILL be done by the time I return to school on August 1.
So, since today is our a... Read more
After the Storm
so to speak. Well, all the birthdays are done. I had ice cream and cake in my house for a week... yep - wasn't a very "clean" week! But it's gone, and I don't have a stitch of crap left in the house.
I have also discovered that if I DO... Read more
1st Entry Today
in a long time... Down 1.5 pounds. Eating clean for 2 days straight. Exercise for 2/3 days. I had "Michelle's coffee" for breakfast though, the first in a long time - 4 Tbs half&half. Yikes. It tasted like the indulgence that it was, but t... Read more
Well, TOM's here. Up 4 pounds in 2 days. Unbelievable. Here I am eating better and exercising again and I'm up. I do know, however, that this is me. It's how I work. Give it a week.
I went to the pool with the kids (for a birthday par... Read more
I tried to blog during the day yesterday, but for some reason, the blog wouldn't save. So I'll update now.
1. We worked outside for a while yesterday morning. The kids didn't have Sunday School yesterday, which gave us over an hour more ... Read more
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
