The flesh is weak. So we had a student's birthday party this morning. I was bad. I had two Krispy Kreme donuts. And then...the main campus sent over tons of food from our annual thanksgiving feast. Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet po... Read more

Two and a half weeks, three pounds. Although I was pleased by the scale this morning, my energy level is really low today. I could hardly keep it going today, and I had to fight my eyes trying to shut during an afternoon meeting. I did ... Read more

Scale said another .5 down this morning. Yum. I did the resistance band workout, then ran some errands. My relaxing evening was cut short by the fact that two of the dogs from next door got in the yard tonight. This wasn't a gap in the f... Read more

I got on the scale this morning and I was one pound lighter. Yay for me! It's a start. Slacked on the exercise today, though. I've been doing well...today's the first day I didn't really do anything since I started this. I've been strug... Read more
Sunday Night Anxiety

I don't know if other people get this. I get very anxious at the end of the weekend, worrying about how the week is going to go. Will I forget something? Will my lesson flop? Will I be able to get enough sleep to face the day? The worry... Read more

I started out the day being rather bummed...due to the fun PMS thing, after one week of diet & exercise, I seem to have gained half a pound. I had a student who had a lengthy meltdown today, which was rather stressful. He fell asleep afterward... Read more

Tomorrow is my weigh-in day. It would be nice if I actually saw some progress. PMS always makes me puffy, though; it might be another week before the numbers on my scale actually mean what they say, so to speak. I have kept my calories wi... Read more

Horrible day at work today. Dealing with the emotionally disturbed is occasionally...well, disturbing. I'm still getting over my little virus, and sometimes (like today) I just don't have enough energy to keep an even keel with screaming/cryin... Read more

Except for the lack of voice, I feel a lot better today. I got to work early to prepare for the new student. He didn't show. But I got back into the swing of things, and my stuff wasn't annihilated by a sub. Things are back to what passes fo... Read more
First sick day of the school year

I hate being sick. Even more, I hate taking sick days. It's an awful feeling to have a sub in your room...the kids act up, and it takes a few days to get everyone calmed back down. The lessons never go right. It's more work to correct everyt... Read more
Gotta start somewhere, I guess

I started the Spark People thing two days ago. So far, there hasn't been any dramatic progress, but it's only been a couple of days. I'm also coming down with what feels like a nasty cold. I'm congested, achy and spaced out. I'm not sure how... Read more
