Am I fat and other thoughts
Sunday, January 31, 2010      3 comments

I can't believe what this weight loss/weight gain journey does to our heads. I've lost 13 lbs since Christmas, so I feel quite skinny. But I am now only at my starting weight for Weight Watchers 3 years ago when I felt enormous and swore... Read more
Students, evalutions, and air conditioners
Thursday, September 10, 2009      1 comments

Well, after 2 days with no air conditioner in my car, after spending around $5,000 to get it fixed twice, my husband fixed it himself. With a cheap fuse no less. I hate to think that we could have saved ourselves all that money if he'd known a... Read more
Craving carbohydrates
Tuesday, September 08, 2009      4 comments

I am a carbohydrate junkie and today was one of those days when I craved sugar. So, I decided to go for it and although I stayed below my recommended calories, let's say I didn't eat in a healthy way. For dinner, I had a small roast beef sandw... Read more

My stupid car is having problems again. The air conditioner isn't working. In fact it's stuck on heat. I already paid a couple of thousand to have this fixed a couple of weeks ago. The problem is I can only get it fixed in Vegas which is 2 ... Read more

Today was a good day. I'm starting to enjoy my nightly walks with my husband more and more. As I gain strength and stamina, the walking isn't so bad, and the weather is cooling down, so I'm enjoying that more too. Yesterday, my husband co... Read more

I had another good day today. School's going well. I think my AP classes are going much better than last year. I think my revised strategies are working. I stayed with the diet, exercised but I'm feeling tired in the evenings again. I hate ... Read more
Sunday, day of rest lol

I'm not sure what to blog about today. I had an okay day. It was a Sunday which was nice, but I cleaned my house so that it wouldn't need much upkeep during the week when I teach. I swept, mopped and vacuumed. I figure those things burn a fe... Read more

So last night my son and his family came over like they do every Friday, and we ordered in pizza like we do every Friday, and I ate 3 pieces unlike the 2 I usually eat every Friday. I was so hungry, I just couldn't stop at 2. But it didn... Read more

Feeling tired and fat
Wednesday, August 26, 2009      3 comments

I hate it when at the end of the day, I feel fat and sluggish. The roll around my belly feels enormous when only this morning it was starting to feel smaller. What is it about the end of a long tiring day that makes us feel this way? I do... Read more

My daughter, son-in-law and my new granddaughter Lily came to stay this weekend and I managed to eat okay and stay within my calorie limits. It was so nice just to snuggle Lily and take care of her so my daughter could have a few moments to her... Read more
