Jumpin' off the Wagon
Well, my first full week of school is done and I made it. It's always tough getting back - there is just so much to re-adjust to (not the least of which is that I miss my kids!) My professional focus this year is student discourse. T... Read more
First Day Back
Yesterday was my first day back at school... all day department chair meeting. I was exhausted. My room is almost ready - has to be for new-teacher training on Monday. My partner and I are doing a 2-hour block of the training. Our block is e... Read more
Good and Bad
Cleaned out my closet today - got rid of 5 bags of clothes (mostly too big stuff). I also discovered some "old friends" that had been relegated to the back of the closet because they were too small - and now they fit (and some of them are too b... Read more
Okay, it's been one week, and I'm down in pounds! Yeah! I slacked off a little bit over the weekend - had a small group brunch on Saturday and indulged in a SMALL slice of coffee cake, a SMALL slice of quiche (about 1/16 of a pie) and a bagel ... Read more
So I'm religiously working out right now: every other day is cardio, every other day is strength training. I made up new training routines for myself: Tues = core, Thurs = upper body, Sat (or Sun) = lower body. I wish I could belong to a gym o... Read more
Well, I had a LITTLE bit of un-clean yesterday. I was WAY low on my calories yesterday, so I let myself have a 1-pump latte at Starbuck's. Otherwise, I was clean all day.
And today too. Exercised both days. I'm still trying to figure ou... Read more
Update - day 2
Well - it's day #2 of CLEAN EATING 100% baby! Woo-Hoo. And I won 100 sparkgoodie points on my sign-in wheel. I'm gonna give one to myself - I think - I've never done that! Gotta run now, though, as my son is falling asleep on the floor.

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
