I ran across this great quote this morning on Facebook. I can choose to let it define me, confine me, outshine me or refine me.... I can also choose to move on and leave it behind me. IamLivingPositive.com I got sidetracked with my weight... Read more

Just finished a yummy shake -- added frozen strawberries to a Slimfast French Vanilla and a tablespoon of vanilla pudding. I lost 2 more pounds this week!! Yes! Each day I pray that God continues to give me the strength to continue this j... Read more

Yesterday's small change was to include 5 fruits/vegetables in my day. No problem!! I had a salad for lunch, fruit for snack and a mixture of carrots, zucchini, onions and red peppers. YUMMY! I am hoping to add some new vegetables to my diet.... Read more
Doing My Thing

I've been making good use of my snow day. I've been practicing one of my Zumba routines for the benefit. The song is - "Do my Thing" by Estelle. My favorite lyrics - "When I dance, I dance to the beat of a drummer you don't hear and you... Read more

I guess I never really paid attention to the idea of mindful eating. Today's small change challenge was to practice mindful eating during every single meal and snack. I was to focus on my food without any other distractions (like work or screen... Read more

Because of the weather, we had a 2 hour delay. I wish they would make these decisions before I'm completely dressed and on my way out the door. However, I put the 2 hours to good use by grading papers. The diet went well today. I missed... Read more
Every Hour?

Not much to report today. I began the day by playing for 2 services. Unfortunately, my period decided to start in the middle of the first service. I've been more than 1 year without one so I was blown. I thought I was done. Bummmmmmmerrrrr... Read more

I love a bargain. Thanks for the information BLKLILY on the lean cuisines. I was in Ollie's today and found some Slimfast Pina Colada shakes. They came out this summer but they never made it to the store shelves in my area. They were only $2... Read more
AM Attack
Friday, January 09, 2015      3 comments

I got up early to attack today's challenge - exercising in the a.m. In the past I went to the gym at 5:30 am for either Zumba or weightlifting. On really cold mornings, I would pop in a Leslie Sansone dvd. I got out of the habit. This mornin... Read more

I'm just getting home. Needless to say it was a busy day -- Work. Zumba. Choir Practice. Luckily I had that extra 1/2 hour of sleep last night!! Actually because of the wind chill, we had a 2 hour delay this morning. I used the time to grade ... Read more
Not So Sleepy
Wednesday, January 07, 2015      2 comments

I'm posting slightly earlier because the small challenge today is to go to bed 1/2 hour earlier than normal. I typically get 5-6 hours of sleep a night; it's been this way since middle school. Usually if I go to bed early, I wake up early!! ... Read more

Since being back on the Simple Diet, I seem to spend a lot of time in the grocery store. But as a reflected on this in the check-out line, I was much MORE time waiting for my food to be delivered by a server at a restaurant! Today's chal... Read more

First day back at work! With the exception of a teacher calling out sick at 6:30, it was successful day. I worried about snacking at school, but I didn't bring any cash and I refused a lot of leftover Christmas candy (including my favorite - c... Read more
Trying something new

Winter Break is over! I've spent the day washing clothes, grading papers and getting ready to go back to school tomorrow. I still have one set of papers left to grade but have definitely lost my motivation. What are the chances of snow?! ... Read more
