I do try to avoid wallowing in self-pity, but the last couple weeks have been a mire of the stuff. I don't feel like I have the time in my day to get everything done as it is, and getting to the gym to work out is just one more thing on a too lo... Read more
I was feeling pretty bad about myself this morning - I made the mistake of weighing myself after I ate late last night. I hadn't calculated what I ate yesterday, since it was Meet the Teacher night, and I just bought salad bar stuff from the sup... Read more
My tooth hurts pretty bad - I think a filling fell out or maybe just disintegrated (it's not the metal kind of filling, but the kind that looks like tooth). I did call and make an appointment today to get it checked out, but the appointment isn'... Read more
I stepped on the scale this morning, feeling pretty bad about myself. I went out to dinner last night with a friend, and I didn't eat a lot (an avocado roll, an oshinko roll, and a ginger salad), but I still felt bloated and huge. I had chips an... Read more
Excited about the new semester!
We're on the block in my district, which means new classes start next week, and I am PUMPED. This will be the first time that I've taught AP Latin, so I'm a little teensy bit nervous, but I know I'm ready to do it :)
I wasn't excited until ... Read more

Is it ever OK not to track?
So, when I'm on a diet, I like to watch what I eat very carefully. I log literally every single thing that I eat or drink, including water and things like the 1 or 2 nuts I might grab out of the nut bowl. The obsessively seems to help me out whe... Read more

Getting easier . . .
So, even though I'm forgetting to log my exercises into the Fitness Tracker, I'm remembering to track them with my goals, so that's better for this week!
I'm doing better with food - I haven't gone over my allotment at all, and most days I'... Read more
Still struggling . . .
I'm still struggling to find time to work out in my day. I know that this will take me more than a week to really figure out the schedule, but I want some results NOW, tyvm ;)
Part of it is that I feel stymied by the staff at my complex - t... Read more
Finding Time to Work Out
Well, I'm finally back here again after nearly two years away. I gained back about 15lbs. My low weight was 164, and now I'm at 178. This depressing. Thus, I have joined the latest bootcamp challenge here on SP.
The trouble? I have no idea... Read more
In all fairness, at one point in my life, the treadmill and I were BFF. I loved being able to run for more than five minutes at a clip, which was only possible for me on a treadmill because of a high school sports injury that's left me with horr... Read more
Doing the Work, Forgetting to Track
So, I've been doing the Bootcamp Challenge here, and unbelievably, I've kept up with everything. Tomorrow is the last day, and I've done all the exercises, challenges, and cardio workouts that they've asked, plus some extra stuff on the side. Am... Read more
In my last post, I lamented that I hadn't been losing weight during this bootcamp thing, which as it turns out is not entirely true. If I'm being truly honest with myself, I weighed more than 175 when I first started this thing on May 1st, thoug... Read more
When 1lb feels like 15.
I've been working out fairly hard these past few weeks. I've been actually going to the gym consistently, and I've been working up a hardcore sweat. I've added in strengthening exercises, I'm watching what I eat, and I'm keeping track of more or... Read more
