Level 2, day 1 of the 30 Day Shred. I thought I would skip ahead a couple of days early because I had stopped working up a huge sweat on level 1. The strength moves weren't hurting anymore. I wanted to increase the challenge and work some new... Read more

After a week of wheezing, I went to the doctor yesterday. He told me that I have a bronchial infection with asthma-like symptoms. He gave me a 5-day course of antibiotics and prednisole. It's a steroid, with lots of terrible side effects. It'... Read more

So I ate my way through the work holiday lunch, and Christmas Eve and Day. I also came down with some sort of chest congestion thing. So, very little exercise and lots of food, and I think I gained back everything that I've lost in the last mo... Read more
Kinda bummed out today

Today was exhausting and irritating. The medication has a little to do with that. Sometimes the Remeron makes me feel cranky. Irritable. Short fuse. This happens particularly when I feel like I haven't gotten enough sleep. And the kids wer... Read more

Five more days and I'm on vacation for two weeks. It's going to be a rough five days. The kids get more anxious as vacation time nears. Plus, I'm having two separate teams of observers in my classroom this week. Strangers make them anxious a... Read more

Today was a horrible day, both in the classroom and in the world in general. My kids don't like to have their structure changed (me neither), and our daily routine has been off for two days in a row. Not easy for them to handle. As the aftern... Read more

I started the day off in a good mood: the scale told me that I had finally lost another pound. That was nice. The day went downhill from there. Crazy preparations for the school craft fair tomorrow. I will be manning two tables: one for the ... Read more

I'm really needing the little break that's coming up. Kids are off the wall, furnace has been misbehaving, and I'm going crazy with crafting and errands. I'm tired. My weight is still stuck at 146. It's been a little over a month, and al... Read more

It was a long gloomy day of analyzing vocational tasks. Task analysis is not a fun part of the job. It's boring to the point of pain. But the scale says that I lost another half a pound, and I did not waver today. Half day inservice days are... Read more

My assistant texted me this morning to tell me she was calling off work. The sticky part here is that she is also a bus monitor, which means that her work day starts at six a.m. So she texted me when she got up, which was at 4:30. I had... Read more

I've always been bad at running. Even as a kid. I used to dread PE class in the fall because physical fitness testing always included the one-mile run. I always came in last. (I could never do the flexed-arm hang or the rope climb, either.) ... Read more

Fridays are the hardest. Temptations abound. The staff always seems to bring in treats galore on Fridays, and the school accidentally delivered four extra lunches, which were offered to us (deep fried chicken rings). I survived. No cake, no ... Read more

On Tuesday it will be one month. I was hoping to be farther along on my goals. I have been working really hard at watching what I eat, logging everything, and exercising every day. I lost four pounds, gained most of them back over Thanksgivin... Read more

I actually made it through Thanksgiving in my calorie range. Even found time to work out before dinner and later in the evening. Today I kind of blew it. I waited too long to have dinner tonight, and was absolutely ravenous. I inhaled three ... Read more

Today I'm back in my calorie range (actually a little under). I'm having my herbal tea and relaxing on my day off. No exercise today, although not exactly by choice. Having an allergic reaction to the dog's enzyme powder. My dog is a s... Read more
