Salmagundi (This and that)

Here we are in August and somehow July got by without my making a single blog entry. [sigh]
I'm fairly given to introspection and self-reflection. I have been posting in team message boards and I find that they rather take the place of blogging. In other words, after I've shared my thoughts, feelings, and experiences there, it seems silly to do so again in the blog. I've even thought of cutting and pasting, but it seems so impersonal. Though I have I wonder "personal for whom?"
Summer class is one class away from being done. It's been a mixed success. Those who attended regularly seemed to get something out of it. This was the second time I've delivered this class and it was certainly an improvement over the first time. "Shows improvement" is a valid comment.
Weight is coming along as a very VERY slow pace. But the key is that it is NOT getting worse; it is not going backwards (gaining). Again, that's a reasonably good evaluation.
Fall classes are just around the corner and I feel that the tight schedule and high structure of the fall semester will make it easier for me to adhere to good eating. The opportunities for making bad choices on campus are minimal for me, so it's pretty easy to pack a healthy lunch and stick to just that.
We're hoping to increase walking now that the heat is letting up a little bit.
