We had a PD day today, and while it was useful, it was REALLY hard to get moving this morning. I didn't have to be in until 8, but I knew if I didn't go in early, I would get no time to do anything that *I* needed to get done. So I sucked it u... Read more
Today is Monday.
I got up, went to spin, and my instructor had said, "Be there early! Lots of people will come because it's a new year!" Five people showed up. And I was one of the 5.
It was a good class :) I have to miss Spin on... Read more
New Year, New Habits!
So I planned meals for a week...dinner anyway. (Lunch is easy...peanut butter, carrots, apple or a salad :P At least till it gets cold again...then I'll want soup.) Dinner's always the thing I struggle with when I get home. But if I have the... Read more
Whole Paycheck and other goodness...
I love Whole Foods. I love it because it's big and beautiful and clean and fresh. I love the smell of fresh produce and flowers when you walk in. I love the fact that there is always someone around to show me where the thing that no one ever ... Read more
Well, I missed the FedEx guy because I was in the bathroom and couldn't get to the door to buzz him up fast enough...
So I don't have my vegan books yet. *sigh* I'll have to go to FedEx tomorrow to pick them up.
That said, I have chos... Read more
Cookbooks and Videos
I love cookbooks. I am a hoarder of them. I have everything Rachael Ray has ever published, lots of Julia Child (which is why I make the BEST omelets on the planet), Good Housekeeping, Betty Crocker, Jamie Oliver, and other random collections ... Read more
Spin...Spinned....Spinnded. And considering vegan.
I went back to Spin class this morning...at 5:30am...during a break. There are muscles in my butt I had no idea I had, but OMG they ache. I wore the padded shorts, and that helped, but apparently my backside forgot what Spin class is like.

Nothing spectacular today.
But I was more mindful of what I chose to eat.
I had a banana and a tall peppermint mocha at Barnes and Noble (because if I didn't eat something I was gonna pass out).
I had breakfast for lunch.
I... Read more

Brad and I don't live together. Because of this, he tends to spend his holidays with his parents and I spend mi... Read more
I am thankful for the next couple weeks.

What teachers do when there are no meetings after school
I found out on Thursday what teachers do when there are no meetings after school. They make copies they need for this week and next. They straighten the classroom. They organize things for the next day's lessons. They plan for the following ... Read more
Ho Ho Ho.
So I just looked at my LAST blog entry.
Let's just leave it at:
Things have calmed down a LITTLE bit, but I'm still absolutely exhausted when I get done at school. I'm usually in bed by 7 or 8, after only being home an ... Read more
Despite lack of spin class, running, eating well, and getting enough sleep, I haven't gained any weight back.
I haven't lost any either.
This is the week I will get back on track.
I had an exceptionally rough week at school with... Read more
Time for me.
So after having a good rant, and getting some support that I was needing something fierce (thanks SP peeps!), I took yesterday for me.
I did my nails.
I took a nap.
I went to breakfast.
I watched a lot of Bones (I have a thin... Read more
