    I have been exhausted. I went for a walk today. The weather was absolutely beautiful. It is hard to believe that less than a week ago, school was cancelled because of snow and ice when today it was almost 70 degrees. All weekend, we have had our porch door open during the day and the heat turned... Read more

    I did not make it to the gym today. I was too exhausted; I came home, ate dinner at 5:00, and took a nap. I woke up after two hours to pee, and decided to stay up until the kids went to sleep. I will be going back to bed very soon. I am considering doing a short strength training video before be... Read more

    There was no school for teachers or students today. Tomorrow, teachers will go in for the afternoon for a workday, but there is still no school for students. I was just starting to work on my lesson plans for the week when I got the email about tomorrow. I felt awful all day, and slept for a sig... Read more

    Despite my overeating most days this week, I have lost two pounds. I think it is in part because my body is just shocked by my increased exercise. I have also been eating less than I did before, so that even though I ate more than I should, I still ate less than my body is used to. I usually pla... Read more

    I went over my calories, but by a relatively small amount. I got fast food for dinner, and they gave us an extra item, one that I love, but no one else in my house will eat. I think our previous years of food insecurity has negatively impacted my eating habits, because I hate wasting it. It's alw... Read more

    I stayed within my calories yesterday. It's the first time all year. And I was sure I'd gone over. But it is amazing how much I can eat throughout the day when it's not fast food. I went to the gym yesterday, and then to sleep at 8:30. As much as I love my job, it is exhausting! But it was wo... Read more

    I went way over my calories yesterday, but today is a new day. I went over my calories again today, but not by as much. I went back to school today, but it was a teacher workday, so my team and I went out to lunch. The kids come back tomorrow, so lunch will be much smaller and quicker. I also di... Read more

    I stayed within my calorie range yesterday, but I did not get any exercise. I felt awful all day, and took a nap instead. When it was time for dinner, I heated up some leftovers, but then made my husband throw it away. When I took it out of the microwave, I almost threw up from the smell. After ... Read more

    I am starting this again. About 8 years ago, I used SP to achieve a healthy weight and lifestyle. I maintained it for over two years, until I started college. I went from being a stay-at-home mom to a full-time college student, and I did not have as much time to cook and exercise the way I had be... Read more

    I've not been around for a while. Partly because I was having phone problems. And I was having problems. I had a stretch of time between the end of September to Thanksgiving that I was do very well. Cardiac rehab had gotten back into the swing of working out. My husband made me room in the gara...
