A Day of Temptations (not the singing group)!
Saturday, February 25, 2012      0 comments

Ummmm the smell of popcorn hit me when I walked into Target. I passed by the snack area and headed for the diet section. I picked up a box of protein bars and then it hit me -- Why hasn’t someone made a protein bar that taste like popcorn? As ... Read more

So instead of eating at restaurants every evening, grocery shopping has become my new pastime. I get to exercise (I don’t go any where without the pedometer) and picked up some fruits/vegetables. Today, I picked up some asparagus; I haven’t eat... Read more
No pain no gain?

Splitting my two mile walk was a great idea! Less pain and I got two good workouts. Today there was a breakfast for teachers. It was downstairs so I wasn't tempted. However, someone brought the leftovers into the workroom which is acro... Read more

So I did the Walk Away the Pounds 2 mile walk after school today. Honestly, if a student hadn’t stayed after school and watched me while making up his lab, I would have quit after the first mile! I think I need to do 1 mile in the am and 1 in ... Read more

Wow! Can I be excited for myself? I was going to be happy with 4 pounds but was truly hoping for 7 pounds. I got my wish and a little extra. I'm doing my little happy dance (in my head)! I had to purchase snacks for my after-school grou... Read more

I can't believe it's been a week on the Simple Diet. Today I had my first craving (naturally a hamburger). I looked at the WW snack hamburger but figured it wasn't worth the calories. I went home had some fruit and a Zone bar. Someone ... Read more
Snow Day

Why does it snow on the weekend or when we are already scheduled for a work day? Any way it looks pretty. Today went pretty well. It's been a full week on the Simple Diet and no cheetoes. I used to eat cheetoes every day. Not the small... Read more

I was really joking about the snow day in my last journal entry. My morning was busy running errands, paying some bills & grocery shopping. In the store, I overheard a couple talking about buying extras in case the power goes out. I didn’t un... Read more

I stayed committed today; No burger! I didn't miss the burger much as the employees. Several students (and former) work there and would yell out my name when I entered the restaurant. Wonder if they missed me? Ok - so I'm entering the we... Read more

I was busy today, the students were doing a lab so I didn't have a chance to sit down! Lots of steps. Lots of washing lab equipment. Luckily I ate a meal for breakfast so I made it to lunch without feeling hungry. Today was also the fir... Read more

Today was a busy day. I'm not having any trouble with the entrees and the fruits/vegetables. I made some salsa and ate it with crunch celery. Yum! It's the shakes that are difficult. I like the Special K Dark Chocolate shakes, but worry ... Read more

Thanks for all the support on yesterday. Today went better. Even though 2 students brought me boxes of candy, I politely took them and left them in the teacher workroom for others to enjoy. I also passed up carmel popcorn & brownies. Wen... Read more

Today went pretty well. I had my morning shake, an entree with fruit & vegetables for lunch. I didn't finish my snack shake, I mixed it with strawberries but it didn't taste good. Dinner was ok. Mood wasn't great as I had to attend the w... Read more
