Today was FUN! When I was getting dressed this morning, I pulled out a pair of jeans; my students have never seen me in jeans. Even though we have “dress down” Fridays, I never participate. I never felt comfortable wearing jeans to school (unl... Read more

Boy did I get my schedule mixed up today. I had tickets to go to a concert tonight; the Step show is tomorrow. So I had enough time to come home and exercise before the concert. The concert was inspirational. The perfect end to a busy week @ w... Read more

I had an opportunity to practice my courage today. Last week I shared something (in confidence) with a co-worker only to have her share it with another. I felt it was important for me to say something to her (which normally I would not). So I ... Read more

My knee is feeling better. I’ve worked out to my Walk Away the Pounds dvd for the past three days and completed the 2 mile walk each day. Monday, I modified the workout by omitting the knee lifts. Today I actually felt I could walk another mi... Read more

A student just stopped me on my way to weigh in @ the nurse's office. The student asked if the dress I'm wearing is my favorite. I looked at my dress and asked why she was asking. (You never know what kids are thinking). She replied - "You wea... Read more

I really liked BLKLILY entry about getting rid of clothes. Weeks ago (before I started the Simple Diet) I bought two dresses. I wore one immediately; the other I planned to save and wear Easter Sunday. But yesterday as I was getting dre... Read more

Church was great and I enjoyed my visit with my family. My sister selected a South African restaurant for her birthday celebration. I stuck to my plan – I ate my entrée at home and drank a shake on the 1 ½ drive. Normally I snack on chips or s... Read more

Today was a good except for the pain in my knee so I didn’t exercise. BUMMER!! I rested my knee with a moist heating pad and took a couple of pain pills. But on a positive note –I stayed on the diet. My first real challenge comes tomorrow.... Read more

As I was sitting in the doctor’s office this afternoon, I picked up 3 magazines each claiming the best and fastest way to lose weight. Then I started to think about all the diets I’ve tried – Weight Watchers (numerous times), LA Weight Loss, th... Read more

Busy day. I’m just walking in the house. I worked, walked my 2 miles after school, ate a quick dinner and went to choir practice. Then I went to hang out with some friends; while they ate Chipolte, I watched. Actually I’m hungry now but it’s... Read more

Because of the weather, I walked at the mall. Now, for anyone who knows me, this is quite an accomplishment. Not because I walked 2 miles, but because I actually know where the mall is. I didn’t visit the mall during Christmas; in fact I thin... Read more

For exercise, I’ve been alternating between the Walking Away the Pounds dvd and walking outside for 2 miles. I have to admit I prefer to walk outside; sometimes my schedule doesn’t allow it. Today, my walk outside was spectacular. Listeni... Read more

Lots of housework today. Hopefully I burned a few calories as today was my day of rest from my Lent Walk. I also finished a couple of craft projects. (I also managed a small nap!) I think week 2 went well. I’ll know tomorrow – weigh in ... Read more
