So many rewards
Saturday, May 12, 2012      1 comments

I've been on the internet for the past 4 hours and I'm just getting to posting. But I've gotten my 2 exams written, sent numerous emails, posted my reward points to Lean Cuisine and updated my school web page. I've checked 7 things off my to-d... Read more
If you can read this, thank a teacher

I faced two challenges today and over came them both. This is Teacher Appreciation Week. Our principal walked around this morning with a cart serving each teacher breakfast. I passed up biscuits, eggs, and breakfast meats. I did take the fru... Read more

Busy day (what else is new!) I stopped by Goodwill on the way home looking for some magazine holders for my classroom. Didn’t find them but picked up Leslie Samsome and Kathy Smith dvds. I worked out to Richard Simmons (weights) today until I... Read more
Day 94
Wednesday, May 09, 2012      2 comments

Since it was raining, I worked out to the Biggest Loser dvd. Actually the first Power Mile walk was great! (Better than the one I did yesterday.) My heart rate was up, I was winded and tired when I finished (a good tired!) I did Walk Away the ... Read more

Down 2 pounds for a total of 39.8. I’m knocking on the door of 40 pounds and I’m within 10 pounds of reaching my first goal. Yet again, I must commit myself to recording my food intake. I do really well for a couple weeks then start to slack ... Read more
Small Things

Isn't it ironic that the simplest thing can make your day. Today I was giving an AP test so I needed a watch with a second hand. I found a watch last night (amazingly the battery was still working). This morning when I tried it on, I had to u... Read more
Another Quiet Day in Paradise

Yes, another quiet day in the Kain household. I went to early church service, finished the laundry, cleaned the house, took a short nap and walked 4.6 miles. My lunch is packed for tomorrow and my backpack is next to the door. Could I be ahea... Read more
A Leap of Faith
Saturday, May 05, 2012      6 comments

As I mentioned yesterday, it’s laundry day. As I finished a load and put them on hangers, I found myself hanging up several pairs of pants that are tooooo big. Even with a belt, the pants don’t fit properly. Knowing this, I still found myself... Read more
Diva for Dinner

I should have worn my pedometer to school. Today I tested students all day. Between setting up the computers, distributing/collecting materials and monitoring students I probably logged 10,000 steps. Yet, I came home (6pm) and walked 4 miles.... Read more
Too sexy for my khakis
Thursday, May 03, 2012      3 comments

What I didn't mention in my post yesterday is that I also bought a pair of khakis (in a smaller size!). Now anyone who knows me, knows that I hate shopping. Not just because of the weight issues but I hate the traffic, the crowds, the frustrat... Read more
Day 80
Wednesday, May 02, 2012      3 comments

My first new clothes purchase was workout gear. I walked 2 miles today in my spiffy black & magenta top and shorts. Because of a meeting, I was unable to walk more. Tomorrow I’m going to dinner with some friends. I think we’re going to Ap... Read more
Memories of Ice Cream Parlors
Tuesday, May 01, 2012      2 comments

I got back on track today. Because of yesterday’s busy schedule I didn’t exercise nor did I finish all my food. Today was all about toning (and better planning). I actually got through most of the reps. Years ago I took a class @ Lynchbu... Read more

Busy Busy Busy Day. I completely forgot that this is the 5th Monday when I volunteer to play music at the nursing home. So after my regular teaching schedule and I tutoring students after school, I drove across town to the nursing home. Becau... Read more
No Cinderella
Sunday, April 29, 2012      4 comments

How to describe the prom experience. First, it brought tears to my eyes to see students who you have taught all dressed up and having a great time. You remember them as 9th graders and now they’re young adults ready to make their way in the wo... Read more
Dancing the Pounds Away
Saturday, April 28, 2012      6 comments

I’m between events. The picnic turned out to be a lot of fun. Luckily the rains held off and they didn’t serve hamburgers!! I convinced my sister to go with me. She hasn’t seen the “updated” me since the beginning of March. She wants us to ... Read more
