After reading all the stuff about conditions and medications, and finding info that strength training is vital, I got up this morning rarin' to go and popped in No More Trouble Zones. 35 minutes into the workout, my muscles just turned to jelly... Read more

Most of my blog entries have basically been whining about not losing weight. I'm on vacation right now, and I've been doing a lot of reading...about weight loss, exercise, diet and nutrition, and medication. I've read thing after thing about p... Read more

I'm floundering a bit. Part of it is from the recent holiday...lots of dinners out, family feasts, etc. I misbehaved. I ate too much junk, and I'm feeling the effects from it. I don't do well on vacations. There's been lots of running arou... Read more

So I'm exercising and watching what I eat. I'm nine days away from the end of my long-term goal deadline and not even close to the goal weight. Not even half. Three months...and eight pounds. That's it. Just eight pounds. Frustrating.... Read more

Seems kind of silly at the moment. The weather forecasted a huge storm for the Chicago area. We all sat around watching the emergency closing ticker, and by ten pm it was a landslide. Everything in the suburbs was closing. We got the call at... Read more

President's Day. A much-needed day off. Well, sort of. I'm going to spend the morning doing lesson plans and behavior intervention plans. My seniors are going to graduate in three months, and not one of them is ready for the real world. I'v... Read more
I think it might be working!

12 days of alternating between hour-long cardio and strength exercises. This afternoon the tape measure said that I lost half an inch on my waist. After floundering around with exercises since November...finally, a tiny bit of progress. I kno... Read more

So I have adjusted my exercise routine yet again. I had abandoned the 30 Day Shred after 27 days of not shredding anything. I did a couple of weeks of Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism. For the past week I have been alternating days between BFBM a... Read more

I haven't posted in a while. I gave up on the 30 Day shred with three days to go before I hit 30. I was in constant pain and although I felt like I had better muscle tone, I wasn't seeing any improvement on the scale or the tape measure. I sw... Read more

Oh, I was bad today. Our administrator sent us all to a transition conference. Conferences are bad. Especially conferences that were catered by Panera. One giant bagel and one cheese danish later, and I've already blown the calories for the ... Read more

I've been doing the 30 day shred for 20 days now. I've dropped back to the level 1 exercises for a couple of days because I'm just feeling so tired and ragged. The scale continues to mock me. I took a picture of myself tonight, though, just t... Read more

What a week! I do believe that the course of antibiotics not only got rid of the infection, but also purged my body of all the Remeron. All of a sudden, terrible side effects again and wickedly depressed and ragged. Insomnia. Stomach problems... Read more

Today seriously kicked my butt. Yesterday, the kids were still mentally on vacation. Today...ugh. I had the whole crew; first time full attendance since before Thanksgiving. My tall guy came in today with--I'm still giggling, really--a giant... Read more

Well, it was the first day back, and I survived. The kids seemed happy to be back. Quite a few of them took an extra day off. I'm getting ready for report cards and IEP progress reports, and getting ready for the new girl that starts next wee... Read more

Well, my vacation's just about over. I was sick for the entire first week of it, and just as I was getting better, the bf came down with something. So, needless to say, we haven't gone anywhere or done anything fun. The house isn't spotless, ... Read more
