Death by Clumsiness
Sunday, October 05, 2014      3 comments

We had a majorly expensive tragedy at my house Friday night that may have resulted in a $1100 computer death. I spilled a glass of water on the keyboard of my beautiful, less than 2 years old MacBook Pro. He's now sitting in a rice bath. I am pr... Read more
On track

I slipped today, but I caught myself! After school and Girls on the Run, I had to run to DG (smoke detector battery decided to die IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT). I looked at the Little Debbie treats. Kept moving. I ended up with a bag of fun s... Read more

Broken record here: last week did not go as well as I had hoped. BUT. Today I feel on track. I am going to conquer this week! The workout problem has been fixed: Girls on the Run. I'm frustrated that I can't run like I used to so I do... Read more

I have internet. At home. Over Labor Day weekend, I moved. I went from the city to the tiny little farming town I work in. I now have a 3 minute commute. Heaven. It's heaven, I tell you. However, it took little local internet company near... Read more
I'll start NOW!

I'll track and be mindful when school is out. I'll track and be mindful when I get home from Texas. I'll track and be mindful after camp is over. I work 5 days this week and have VBS?! I'll start next week. It's Wednesday al... Read more

Last week was a Nope week. Nope, I didn't workout. Nope, I didn't track what I ate. Nope, I didn't stop putting junk food into my pie hole. This week is going to be a Yep week. Yep, I did get up at 4:30 and workout this morning. Yep, I... Read more
Back in my routine
Tuesday, February 11, 2014      2 comments

I've had to work 2 days in a row. I'm throwing in the towel; I'm worn out. After 1- and 2-day work weeks for the past month, I'm not sure I can handle real work! On the plus side, my routine is BACK! I thrive on routine. My OCD side wants a... Read more
Girl Scouts. Why.
Monday, February 03, 2014      3 comments

Today will be known as the Great Girl Scout Cookie Mishap. There are still some left. Not many, but some. The fortunate souls who survived my prep time are now safely tucked into the back of the freezer. Out of sight, out of mind. Afte... Read more
My Self-Inflicted Challenges
Sunday, February 02, 2014      1 comments

It's amazing what I can accomplish when I put my mind to it. Sometimes my ultra-stubborn personality pays off. After a dismal week, I had an amazing weekend. I stayed on plan, tracked everything I ate, worked out hard, and stayed out of the ... Read more
Do Over
Sunday, November 17, 2013      3 comments

Being a second grade teacher, I am well versed in the rules of do overs: 1. Things are not going your way 2. You have a [not so] valid argument that persuades your opponent 3. The louder person gets their do over granted ... Read more
Back to the beginning!
Monday, September 09, 2013      5 comments

The beginning of school is always rough. My whole routine is thrown for a loop (as in, I have to go to bed before 3 AM and get up before noon... and you know, WORK). I thrive on routine so it always takes me time to adjust when I go from freed... Read more
A new challenge starts in the morning.

Last week didn't exactly go as planned, but it wasn't a total washout. I spent the week at my boyfriend's (5 hours from me - he just started grad school). I had high hopes of tracking and working out everyday. 50% of that happened. I started... Read more

I'm afraid to write this down out of fear that I'm going to jinx myself, but this could be one of my best weeks yet! I have absolutely no cravings. I actually had to force myself to eat a snack last night because I was under 26 points for ... Read more
Being a maid of honor is exhausting. And hazardous to my health.
Monday, July 29, 2013      4 comments

I've had a couple of "don't care" weeks with very little portion control or tracking and a lot of mindless eating and thoughtless decisions. My sister was home from Texas and won't be home again until her wedding in October. This last week was... Read more
Eating too little??
Monday, July 15, 2013      3 comments

My weight has stalled again (see: January through March). I've continued strength training sessions with a trainer three days a week and I've lost 2 inches since I measured on June 16 (note to self: measure and record it all again). Gaining ... Read more
