Well, I did it. I enrolled and registered for classes to begin my 2nd bachelor's degree. This time I am going for a degree in communication disorders. At that point I will apply (and go) to earn my master's in speech-language pathology! I am... Read more
I Split My Pants
I sat down last night to fold towels and I split my pants. Now granted, these pants were getting older and have been through the wash MANY times. However, I think my thighs rubbing together so much created several worn spots that the poor fabr... Read more
I walked again tonight and actually did better than yesterday. I would grade myself about a C on my food choices today. I had 2 meatless meals, some veggies, and a smaller portion at lunch. There were a few upsets of course. I did drink some... Read more
Long road back
Well, I have been making some healthy changes this week. It's been a long while since I have tried thinking about healthy food, water or exercise. I have a horribly long way to go, but in some ways I have proven a little bit to myself with jus... Read more
Not trying to be a drama queen.....I really am continuing to wrestle with this decision. I know that no one else can make the decision for me and I think that is what I want. I want someone else to say, "Yes, continue Biggest Loser!" or "No, y... Read more
Undeserving of Any Success
Well, I lost 1.4 pounds this week. I didn't really try. In fact, I think I consciously and unconsciously sabotaged my efforts. I have been extremely tired this week, both physically and emotionally. My husband started a new job and while I t... Read more
Back At It
Well, I went back to work today for the first time in two weeks. I was kinda glad to get out of the house (even though it was really cold!) and get back to work. I am so tired of all of the sickness that has hung around our house. I didn't li... Read more
Part 2 (not)....but other stuff.
I don't remember what else I had on my mind to write about. I was going to finish everything this morning, but a co-worker came in and we discussed kids for about an hour and a half. It was good to talk with her because I don't feel like we ev... Read more
Daniel Plan and lots of other stuff.... (Part 1)
First off, my husband came home the other night saying that he wants us to think about trying the Daniel plan. Our church did the Daniel fast last year (I did not participate.) and the pastor and a few others want to try this. I'm nervous. ... Read more
It's been a while
I'm stressed. I'm lazy. I'm addicted. I'm tired. I think that pretty much sums it up. I'm going to try again to do better this week. Of course, how many times have I said that in the past? I hate to say it again because it seems that each... Read more
I passed up a doughnut!
I walked past the teachers' workroom today while picking up some kids. I saw a box holding some sweetly glazed pieces of fried goodness. I started to get kinda mad. I mean, people put food in there quite a bit and yet no one ever emails peopl... Read more
I will make good choices....I will make good choices....
I keep having to repeat that to myself this morning. I sat down earlier this week and planned my meals. I mean, really planned my meals and my snacks. I tried to make breakfast and lunch very simple. My suppers aren't as healthy as I would l... Read more
My Shield and Armor
I realized today that I use my fat clothes as armor to sheild myself against others. While I was standing and waiting for my group, I was taking a look at the other teachers of all different sizes. Then I got to thinking about my clothing. I ... Read more
Um, Yeah, OK
Well....I did horrible today with eating. I didn't get my breakfast because my supervisor came in. If she is going to do it a lot I will have to change my breakfast time. Scarfed a biscuit washed down with caramel creamer in between classes. S... Read more
