Ate clean 95% of the time... I did a great job today - only had a few gummy bears when my blood sugar got low. Overall - great effort. Had a TON of veggies too - every meal except breakfast. We're out of egg whites now - so I won't have veggi... Read more

Didn't jump on the wagon on Dec 15, but I'm ready now. I'm having a hard time getting sleep, unfortunately, so I'm not doing great in the exercise department. I ate pretty well yesterday, and today I'm off and running again. Since I don't hav... Read more

Last year (December 16 to be exact) I started my journey into healthy & clean living. I lost 30 pounds. I defined my shape. I felt powerful. So powerful, in fact, that I started to slide. And here I am, a year later, 27 pounds lighter and t... Read more

I was doing GREAT with the exercise before Thanksgiving! Yippee!!! I felt great, a little sore, but good sore. Pushing myself and feeling strong. Then the kids got sick - croup - 4 nights up in the steam room and outside, in the steam ro... Read more

I know now that it's key for me. If I get up and workout 1st thing, I am MUCH MORE likely to a.) have more energy b.) drink all my water c.) eat clean... I don't know why, but apparently exercise does something to my brain. Once I'... Read more

Well, I have to admit that I've not really been paying attention to my health. About a year ago I decided to take on this "clean eating" thing in earnest. I lost almost 20 pounds right off the bat. In the spring I decided to take on the exerc... Read more
The Best Class Assignment I've Ever Given
Saturday, November 08, 2008      1 comments

So I'm a math teacher. I don't generally ask my students to be introspective about their lives. But since they work in groups for about 75-80% of the time in my class, it is to my advantage to do "team building" activities on a pretty regular ... Read more
Week 2

Well, I gave myself a week off... off of being strict with my diet (my basic menu was clean, but I strayed more than I'd like to admit), off of exercise, on to work, work, work, work and more work. Last year when I made my commitment to cha... Read more

It's my first weekend home without any commitments and I wanted to celebrate with a yummy breakfast. Not that all my breakfasts aren't yummy - they are! I just wanted to transport back to that time when I was a kid and we'd have pancakes & sau... Read more

Well, after the first 3 weeks of school, a schedule change and readjusting, I was starting to think I would never get my groove back. So, I decided to take it slow. Right now I am just too tired in the morning to get up and exercise. It's kil... Read more

:-) 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

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

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
