Falling Skies
Friday, December 14, 2012      0 comments

After a restless night, I woke to a beautiful meteor shower. God's glory continues to reveal itself. Zumba was cancelled this morning. Of course I didn't know that until I arrived. Luckily I had my mp3 player in the car so I walked for 4... Read more
Psalm 116:15
Thursday, December 13, 2012      3 comments

Today I'm dealing with the death of one of my students. Psalm 116:15: Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. I'm trying not to turn to food for comfort. But I've indulged in chocolate chip cookies..... :( Da... Read more
Fun Teacher

It has been a fantastic teaching day. My students have been on task all day. I had an opportunity to actually sit with my students and "catch up"! One of my student said that I was atually fun and that he voted for me as the funniest teacher... Read more
Advent Season
Tuesday, December 11, 2012      2 comments

No weight gained or lost this week. It was kind of expected because I had a big loss last week. I will press on. I certainly don't want to gain any weight during the holiday season. I just got my first box of candy; how do you re-gift an adve... Read more

This probably sounds strange, but I had the best doctor’s appointment ever! My blood pressure was 112/72 and all my blood work came back within normal limits! My doctor was soooo pleased. He checked my records I weigh less today than when I FI... Read more
Down Time

Today is my day of rest (from exercise!). I went to Sunday School this morning and now I'm reading the paper and paying bills. It will be a busy week. I have two teachers out this week due to surgeries so I have substitutes I have to me... Read more
Cleaning Frenzy
Saturday, December 08, 2012      2 comments

Its been a relaxing day even though I've been up since 5am (I forgot to put the garbage out!). I went to have some blood work down and then went to Aqua Zumba and (land) Zumba. I've been cleaning ever since. I'm attacking another closet... Read more
Fa La La La La

It's hard to be in a bad mood when you're listening to Christmas music. Between the 2 channels on Sirius and the local station, I've been singing Christmas music since Thanksgiving. This was particularly important distraction because of the ... Read more
Getting it Done

This is the second night that I've awoken early and been unable to go back to sleep. At least I used the time wisely to grade some papers and work on my lesson for today. I administered standardized test all afternoon and I've logged 12000 step... Read more

I've been up since 2:30 this morning. I should have known that this wouldn't signal the start of a great day. I decided to use the time to do lesson plans which is great and I did grade a few papers. The trouble began when I got to school... Read more
Never Stop Improving
Tuesday, December 04, 2012      6 comments

Apparently this is Lowes, the home improvement store's theme. But since I heard it about a dozen times on the way to the work, God must felt that it was important for me to hear it. I feel like by adding different exercises to my routine,... Read more
Taebo Tired
Monday, December 03, 2012      3 comments

Somehow I got the time wrong for water aerobics this evening. By the time I got there, it was half over. So I went home and popped in the Taebo Celebrity Fit dvd I bought at Goodwill. Wow! I only made it through 30 minutes.... Today's i... Read more
Just Work and Exercise
Sunday, December 02, 2012      1 comments

I wish my (school) work ethic was going as well as my diet today!! I love teaching but HATE grading papers! It should be a slower week; no rehearsals, no meetings just work and exercise. My lunch & gym bag are packed for tomorrow. Now t... Read more

I've got 30 more days to reach my goal of losing 100 pounds. Sounds silly but I want to start the new year as "a new woman". (Even if I don't I am an new woman!) Today I started the morning with some chores and then went to the gym for th... Read more
10,000 steps to a smaller me
Friday, November 30, 2012      3 comments

Aqua Zumba was cancelled this evening but I did make it to (regular) Zumba this morning. I love my Fitbit; when you sync it I can see when I made the majority of my steps and when I burn the most calories. I try to get the 10,000 steps in... Read more
